I saved my time to watch this episode because certainly I'm following this second and last run of Season 12 but also because I really liked and enjoyed last week Pandemic and it ended in a really great way so for sure I was waiting for a great and really bizarre conclusion.

Pandemic 2: The Startling was for me a good episode, not a really great one yet I just loved some things of it. Basically there are not surprises; in the end of Pandemic we know that Craig somehow is the only hope to end with the monstrous guinea pigs and in the beginning of Pandemic 2: The Startling thanks to him we are in context with this bizarre story. As I write, there are not surprises in the way to know why Craig is quite important, basically this episode have 3 sections: the boys and Craig in Peru, the actions of the Homeland Security leader and Randy recording what's happening in South Park with the monstrous guinea pigs. The section of the boys and Craig in Peru goes straight to the point, once we know why Craig is important is only matter of time. And is thanks to Craig's words that we laugh and of course are great those ancient drawings of the prophecy. The actions of the Homeland Security leader are not a surprise for us but of course are a total surprise for his men and are hilarious, he is not worry for the guinea pigs but just for getting rid of the Peruvian pan flute bands! The Blair Witch Project /Cloverfield/REC-like section is for me the best and the one that delivered more laughs. Once again we are watching what's happening in South Park with the guinea pigs via Randy's camera. Is just brilliant the scene in which we watch how really things are, we are not watching any more via Randy's camera so there's not more the excitement! I loved the guinea pigs, just very cute but just pure evil but more cute once we watch guinea bees, guinea bunnies, etc. Is just great and obvious that the most evil has to be the cutest, guinea pirate! And the great ending, basically Craig does learn something very important (check the boys dressed like mariachis!), Randy didn't recorded anything (hell, all of the danger he had to record the events was not rewarded) and the guinea pirate free!
