However, the plot of this video is much more complicated than that of your average one.
Before reading on, I suggest that you watch the video because SPOILERS AHEAD:
Prison guard Derpy arrives just in time to CLEARLY SEE the Scorpion escaping, but it takes him some time to realize what’s going on. One must wonder how he keeps his job. Scorpy gets somewhat annoyed, and snaps at Derpy, but Derpy only responds by having a seizure and then exclaiming once again that the Scorpion has escaped.
Meanwhile, Peter Parker tries to convince J.J. Jameson to give up the American dream and become a scum-sucking low-life, but J.J. won’t have any of it, claiming that “the newspaper is for news, Parker”. The viewer can see in Peter’s eyes that he may/may not have some sociopathic and/or psychopathic tendencies, including but not limited to murder fantasies about J.J. J.J. then receives no less than FOUR (4) calls from Anonymous as to his endangered life, and Peter Parker openly mocks him for his likely demise, revealing more of Peter’s depraved psyche. J.J. calls the professor and makes it EXTREMELY CLEAR to him that if he sets A GOOD TRAP, he will be safe. However J.J. overestimated the professor’s practical knowledge, and the prof. ended up putting a really measly pathetic and obvious trap, saying satisfactorily over the phone “that oughtta do it”. J.J. can tell that the prof might have some problems/need some pills, but desides not to remark upon it. J.J. looks up to find that Peter has left the room, troll that he is (trololol). J.J. calls out mournfully to Peter, and then reassures himself that the poor boy is only a “teenager”, which Peter again scoffs at, showing that he is clearly doing this purposefully and DOES have psychopathic problems. Deciding to do some more trolling, Peter puts on his strange cosplay bodysuit based on the fact that even HE can tell that “the professor needs [some serious therapeutic] help” (however, it is later revealed that Peter’s intentions were not genuinely to benefit the professor, only to troll him) Spidey now takes his own sweet time going to X location.
Meanwhile, at X location, the professor is assaulted by the Scorpion, who asks for the serum. Angrily, the scorpion looks through the lab for it, but is repeatedly and obnoxiously told “STOP!” and “YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING!” by the professor, which only worsens the situation. After being told to “STOP!” about thirty times by the professor, the scorpion gives up on trying to find the “serum” (prolly just weed, actually) and simply starts throwing everything at the professor. Meanwhile, spidey finally makes it to X location. There, he can CLEARLY hear the sounds of the professor being assaulted, but either feigns ignorance or really is incredibly stupid, then reaching the stupid/ironic conclusion that “[he] sense[s] trouble”. Spidey then opens the door to find the professor being viciously assaulted to within an inch of his life, but does nothing to help until the scorpion is gone. This may have been an act of surprise, cowardice, or, most likely, complete lack of empathy for his fellow man. Spidey then questions the professor extensively about “the serum”, to the point that it is apparent that he desires its effects for himself. But when it is apparent that Spidey isn’t going to get it his way, he settles for second best: an “antidote” that the prof. worked up in his (meth) lab. Spidey then starts swinging again, only to fall from his web and DIE (???)
From this point on, everything is speculation. The rest of the episode could be a dream (J.J.’s? of what life could have been if spidey lived?) or some kind of parallel universe. Or maybe spidey survived the fatal fall, somehow. In any case, Spidey is assaulted by the scorpion, who though normally a logical if somewhat camp man, proceeds to play with webs for no reason and then become overly irritated and grow huge (this is very likely either the living spidey’s hallucinations as a result of his concussion or “the antidote” (obviously METH) or J.J. casting his recollections of Spidey’s personality onto Scorpion). The scorpion then becomes irritated by Spidey’s existence, perhaps seeing into his soul and realizing that this psychopath must be eradicated, and throws him away, proclaiming he “dosen’t want that” (this may be a hint towards a former romantic relationship betwixt spidey and scorpy, as the scorpion implies that he “do[sen’t] want” to suffer the same abuse from Spidey as he once did. Spidey survives, however (if he is really still alive, maybe he actually dies here and this is where J.J’s dream actually starts) and rushes to the surface, making a cruel joke to himself, affirming to the viewer that his sense of humor is VERY twisted, thinking that anything relating to death and murder is funny.
Meanwhile, J.J. goes through a mental breakdown (the entire rest of this episode may be the hallucination within his mind he has at this point in time) and subsequently his paranoid fear comes true and he is captured. Spidey then swoops in, knowing full well that J.J’s life is in danger, and nonetheless JOKES about J.J.’s likely death to Betty, testing the waters to see if she is fit to join his cult of personality. She finds him a disgusting psycho and thus Spidey leaves. Spidey then points at Scorpy’s genitalia, trying to shame/shock Scorpy for no particular reason other than that Spidey is sick and enjoys mind games. Scorpion claims that he is going to murder Spidey (again, may be a projection of Spidey’s homicidal tendencies by J.J./Spidey) and then Spidey runs off in fear or simply wanton abandon, leaving J.J. to die. However, the clumsy Scorpion trips on some random thing on a tree and trips, releasing J.J., who then instructs the army to open fire on Scorpion, reducing him to normal size (effectively ending the hallucination that it all may have been) In the ending sequence, J.J. takes credit where credit is due, but in a melancholy way not normally befitting him. This may be another clue that Spidey died (or was dead all along) (ALSO: Were J.J., Spidey, and Scorpy involved in a doomed love triangle? If so, was the professor involved?) J.J. imagines once again Spidey running off, in that carefree way he once did.
