When Jailbot begins to have technical problems (to that point that he busts Jacknife out of prison in the opening credits), Jared decides to replace him with a new, highly-advanced robot: Jailbot 2.0 (which bears a resemblance to an Android phone or iPod or iPhone or iPad). Jailbot is consigned to a basement room where he meets up with previous versions of jailbots.

After Warden runs off to start cracking down on Superjail's "Drug Trade", the inmates hold their own movie night. Ash fears all movies in general due to a traumatic moment in his childhood and is reluctant to go, but gay inmates Jean and Paul help him face his fears. While this is happening The Warden, Jared, and the Doctor discover some of the Warbuxx crystals on the floor. Assuming they are illegal drugs, they decide to get high to deter the inmates from using them. They begin to physically mutate (but believe this is just the effects of the drugs), run though Superjail, and scare the inmates. They send Ash into a flashback, and he burns the theater down. The three drugged individuals burst in on Alice who is acting as the "bud-steward" for the Twins, who are in the Superjail refrigerator preparing for the budding of the Warbuxx. When the Warbuxx does bud The Twins reveal that the Warbuxx is actually a delicacy, and eat it in front of a horrified Warden, Jared, and Doctor which kills their buzz. Shortly afterwards, Alice sends part of the Warbuxx to a starving adopted child in Africa to devour himself. This is the first episode which does not feature Jacknife, does not include any major violence, and does not have an opening sequence in which Jailbot captures Jacknife.
