Synopsis for "The Kids Are NOT Alright Part 2"
Slackjaw confronts Joe, Annie and Jack Smith and surrounds them with his possessed child army. Annie tries to convince Joe to transform into Brimstone but he does not want to relinquish control as he may end up killing the children or even Annie, though Annie believes that a child could not do this, and that Slackjaw must be an adult. During their deliberations, Jack Smith uses his knife to stab one of the children revealing himself to be an outsider of the town, who arrived to fend off the curse. Jack leaps into combat with the children while Annie and Joe try run away but they are captured and bound until Joe transforms.
There is a momentary pause as the hoard react to Brimstone's appearance and Joe uses the smoke to disrupt their attack. Slackjaw makes his escape which weakens his control over the other children. Brimstone goes after Slackjaw but he stops just before killing the villain as Slackjaw reveals the promise made by the Salesman - that he could stay a child forever, and that the Salesman fed him lies about his parents leading him to kill them, and then to corrupting the entire town's children to do the same.
Joe throws the child to the ground and forces his mask off as Annie levels a gun at the child. As the mask is torn away, they realise that Slackjaw is just a child. Joe transforms back into his normal form and hugs the child, he and Annie realise that they cannot bring themselves to kill a child. They leave the village to look after itself, with Slackjaw's power he should be able to help them and they leave with regrets but powerless to do more.
Jack, however, disappears but promises to return.
