"Trey Parker and Matt Stone have buried the hatchet with--sorry, into--Isaac Hayes.Just wait it gets better
On Wednesday's South Park 10th season premiere, Hayes' Chef character was struck by lightning, impaled, shot, mauled by a mountain lion, eaten by a grizzly bear, and, oh, yes, accused of being a child molester."
"In the completely made-up story, Chef is "brainwashed" by an organization of child molesters called the "Super Adventure Club." In order to cure Chef, Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny take their friend to a psychiatrist, a frowned-upon profession among Scientologists.
In the end, Chef dies a million Kenny deaths, only to live on, sort of, as a Darth Vader version of himself.
At his funeral, Kyle urges South Park residents to remember Chef as he was, before the brainwashing. If there is to be anger, he says, don't direct it at the beloved cafeteria worker.
Rather, says Kyle, "we should be mad at the fruity little club for scrambling his brain."
