Total Drama Wiki

Two previously eliminated contestants host this season's new feature: a behind-the-scenes talk show. The non-returning contestants are back to provide commentary, with two others guest starring.


After a short montage of Gwen and Trent's moments over the course of Total Drama Action, the episode begins with former castmates, and hosts Geoff and Bridgette introducing the new "Total Drama Action Aftermath Show," where the two talk about what has happened on the show thus far, and provide their own commentary. Geoff happily introduces himself and Bridgette to the audience as former members of Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action, though Bridgette bitterly reminds him they were voted off for kissing.

A snide remark is overheard from Eva, prompting Geoff to introduce the eight castmates from last season who did not qualify for this season: Cody, Noah, Ezekiel, Eva, Katie, Sadie, Courtney (who is busy talking to her lawyer, Michael, about suing the show), and Tyler. Bridgette and Geoff explain that they will read messages and texts from the viewers, and have some viewers on live webcam. The two reveal their guest stars for this episode: Izzy and Trent. Bridgette mentions how bad she feels about Trent's situation, which Katie and Sadie wholeheartedly agree with.

Sadie talks about her sister's allergy.

Before introducing Izzy, the hosts show a video containing various clips of her during her short time on the season, finally calling on her to appear. Izzy walks out to join Geoff and Bridgette on stage, and they begin their talk show segment. However, before they can ask her questions, she notices her old boyfriend, Graham, in the audience, and mentions how the restraining order he filed against her put a strain on their long distance relationship. Geoff starts by asking Izzy how it felt to be the first one voted off the show, but she returns the question by asking him how he felt. Bridgette reminds Geoff that they were the first to be voted off, and he starts to recount what he was feeling at the time before stopping himself upon realizing he was not asking questions. Bridgette asks how it had felt not getting a Gilded Chris Award, and Izzy starts to cry while explaining herself. When asked if the memories were too painful to bring up, Izzy reveals that she can't lie due to an implant in her neck that shocks her at the first sign of dishonesty.

Izzy responds to Chef's alliance offer by kicking him in the chest, in a previously unseen clip.

Geoff introduces a game called Truth or Hammer, where they ask Izzy questions, and if she answers dishonestly, a hammer will fly down to knock her off her seat. Bridgette asks the first question: "Where did things go wrong for E-Scope?" She replies that it was when she turned down a secret alliance with Chef, which shocks the audience and the hosts. A never before seen clip shows Chef offering Izzy help in manning up, so long as they split the prize money evenly. Izzy responds by kicking him in the chest, scaring a nearby intern. Geoff points out the fear in the intern's face, and the same intern, in the Aftermath studio at that time, runs away in fear. Izzy mentions that Chef likely made a deal with DJ. Bridgette takes a message from a viewer, who asks if Izzy thinks DJ will be busted, to which she replies that she busted her arm, and is now double jointed.

Izzy drops graham crackers and olives into the front of her tank top.

Bridgette starts introducing Trent, sympathizing with what happened to him, while blaming Gwen for him being voted out. Geoff quickly disagrees, citing that Trent's superstition with the number nine, and general weirdness, made their relationship unstable. Bridgette mentions Trent missed out on the prize because of Gwen, and Geoff unknowingly reveals to a watching Trent that Gwen went behind Trent's back to have the Grips vote him off. Trent, watching from the green room backstage is completely shocked. Upon realizing his mistake, Geoff apologizes, but also points out that the Grips would've voted him out anyway for throwing challenges. Bridgette agrees, but firmly believes that Gwen double-crossed Trent to save herself. Geoff reminds everyone that Trent kissed Heather, but Bridgette retorts that Heather kissed Trent. Geoff lets slip that he doesn't need to be tricked into kissing the hottest girl on the show, which angers Bridgette and causes the two to fight. Izzy tries to step in with a distraction until the show goes on break.

The commercial shown is an advertisement for Chef's Roadkill Café, then the show returns. Izzy joins Geoff and Bridgette on the main couch to talk about Trent and Gwen, with Geoff on Team Gwen, and Bridgette on Team Trent, and Trent still in the green room sobbing. They show a video recapping their relationship over both seasons before Izzy asks the losers how they feel about the whole ordeal. After remembering how Trent kissed Heather, Sadie switches her support from Team Trent to Team Gwen, causing a fight between herself and the dissenting Katie. Cody is on Team Gwen, because of the bra she gave him, and Courtney, too, is on Team Gwen because she thinks Trent is a loser by choice. Izzy wants to bring out Trent, who is now playing his guitar while crying.

Trent sings a song he wrote about his breakup with Gwen.

Trent joins them on stage and Bridgette asks what happened. Trent truthfully answers that things were fine until they were split up, though mentions things got rocky when Gwen and Duncan started hanging out, much to Courtney's disgust. The hosts bring up Trent's strange obsession with the number nine, and show the clip of Duncan explaing his reasoning to Gwen. Trent explains that when he was a kid, his grandfather gave him a toy train. Right before he died, the train lost a wheel and only had nine, which devasted him, but his mother turned it into a positive by making nine his lucky number. This story moves Sadie, Katie, and even Courtney enough to make them switch over to Trent's side.

Geoff and Bridgette introduce their first video guest, Ginger, who describes herself as a Trent fanatic, and shows off a stuffed doll she had made to resemble Trent, much to his horror. Before she can scare Trent any further, her video is cut off. The next guest is Steve the Yeti, who claims Chris is the best host ever and asks how Geoff and Bridgette got a show. He is interrupted by Chef, who calls the Yeti Chris, asking about getting into a hot tub together. Chef joins Chris on camera to tell the audience not to trust anything Izzy says. Afterward, Geoff gets a call from someone that believes both Gwen and Trent stink and announces their support for Team Eva, though it's found that Eva is making the call.

The final segment of the show, called "That's Gonna Leave A Mark!" shows various unseen footage of castmates being hurt by different objects. After the clip, Trent asks if he can sing a song he wrote after he and Gwen broke up. The entire cast, except Noah, are moved by the song, and Geoff and Bridgette share an embrace. Geoff apologizes to Bridgette and the two begin making out. Bridgette says they will be hosting the Aftermath all season, and the show ends. At the very end, the two are still making out as the studio is swept by an intern and the lights are turned off.

Exclusive clip

Trent sneaks away as Katie and Sadie argue over who he actually likes.

Katie and Sadie stand outside Trent's dressing room, with the latter knocking and begging him to come out. Katie comments on his hotness, and Sadie agrees, though expresses disappointment that he has a girlfriend. Katie corrects her on the matter, but Sadie replies that she, herself, is Trent's girlfriend, but he doesn't know it yet. Katie accuses her of stealing him, sparking an argument between the two. As they bicker, Trent sneaks out of his dressing room, gesturing to the viewer to be quiet.

  • In this episode, Izzy confirms that the Gilded Chris Awards are made of chocolate covered in gold foil, including the ones that were thought to be metallic in "Alien Resurr-eggtion."
  • It is revealed that Trent's obsession with nine is not, as it was assumed to be, from the number of characters in his and Gwen's combined names, but about a toy train he had as a child that lost one of its wheels and only had nine left. The train was a gift given to him by his grandfather before he died.
  • After Trent's story about his grandfather, Eva can be seen crying when Katie and Sadie say that they are team Trent.
  • Geoff apparently considers Heather to be the show's most attractive female.
    • This is the second time that Geoff accidentally says that someone is very hot in front of Bridgette.
  • Izzy reveals in this episode that she had a major elbow injury and is now double-jointed, which explains how she is able to double-joint her elbows in her first audition tape.
  • Bridgette mentions that Izzy's time is brief, but she would be back for more. This may be a foreshadowing of Izzy's return in the next episode.
  • The silhouette of the original designs for Katie, Sadie, Justin, and Eva are seen in the audience.
  • The blond intern's design is the same design as Tyler's original design from Camp TV.
  • It is revealed that Izzy is ranked eighth on the RCMP's most wanted list.


  • This is the second episode in the series lacking a recap of the previous episode, with the first being "Haute Camp-ture."
  • Izzy still seems to respond only to E-Scope, yet at one point Geoff addresses her as Izzy while asking a question, and she answers the question without any violence or complaints (though she may have abandoned this nickname because she saw how it was somewhat responsible for her being eliminated).
  • It is revealed that Chef initially considered forming an alliance with Izzy before he chose DJ, but she rejected his offer.
  • Cody still has Gwen's bra that he received from her in "Up the Creek" in the first season.
  • Courtney is shown to be very jealous of the close friendship Gwen and Duncan have developed, similar to Trent's feelings on the matter.
  • When Geoff and Bridgette show clips of Gwen and Trent, a moment of Trent carrying Gwen during the previous season finale, which appears only in Owen's ending and not Gwen's, is shown.
  • Trent is devastated after he discovers that Gwen is the one to get him eliminated in "3:10 to Crazytown."
  • Courtney is shown still trying to sue the show as of this episode. She is seen talking on the phone with Michael, her lawyer. It is unknown if they are trying to appeal their first lawsuit (which Courtney said was lost in "Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island") or filing a new lawsuit against the show.
  • This is also the second time Bridgette is disloyal to Gwen.
  • This is the second time the show isn't hosted by Chris.
    • The first is in "Are We There Yeti?" when Chris went to an award show, leaving Chef in charge. It is also the first time that the castmates host the show.
      • Chris, however, appears in this episode disguised as a Sasquatchanakwa named Steve the Yeti, complimenting himself and telling Geoff and Bridgette they don't deserve their own show, until Chef blows his cover.
  • When Tyler is introduced, Geoff suggests that someone should inform Lindsay, referring to Lindsay continually forgetting that Tyler isn't competing in the season.
  • Bridgette makes references to past episodes when introducing the aftermath's guests:


  • At the end, when Izzy signs off the episode, her cleavage disappears.
  • The pick-guard on Trent's guitar constantly switches from the right side to the left side of the guitar.
