Where The Hell?… Commander Jesus & Armageddon Stan

Note From Bunny: This post was brought to you by the generous help of one of our Addicts Readers! Thanks!!

In this lil game of ours, it is easy to get lost and so focused into collecting items or unlocking characters that we tend to forget the lil things that make the game what it is. Like Where the HELL did these items come from and why are they in our games?

Well I am here to do just that for you. Let’s take a look at the Family Guy Series and find out just Where The HELL Did That Come From?

Commander Jesus Armageddon Stan



As we tap away in our own little Quahog, we like to reflect on just WHERE all this content is coming from. For our current Event, most of the elements – such as Clevemire, Sidewalk Joe, Twinklies, and even the Mutant Stewies – are drawn from the Family Guy episode “Da Boom” (s2e3). Others, like Imperator Lois and Warlord Consuela, are references to last year’s movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

If you wondered why Commander Jesus is different from the Jesus already in our game, it’s because He’s from the American Dad! episode “Rapture’s Delight” (s6e9), along with (naturally) Armageddon Stan.

 


Season 6, Episode 9: “Rapture’s Delight” (Side Note Bunny: though it is actually tagged Season 5, Episode 9… just noted differently depending where you look online.)

As the Smith family goes to Church on Christmas morning, Stan is frustrated dealing with those that are only religious on holidays. To relieve Stan’s stress, Francine has sex with him in the janitor’s closet. They are thus preoccupied when the Rapture occurs. Thousands of righteous people drift up to Heaven from every city (and one from Las Vegas). Steve and Hayley are also taken up, but Stan and Francine are among those Left Behind. Thinking this must be a mistake, Stan strips off all his clothes to make it easier for Heaven to bring him up. It doesn’t work.

Still at church, Francine and (still naked) Stan watch a Sunday School video explaining the Rapture, how Jesus has returned and how the next seven years – the Tribulation – will be a war in which Jesus’s army will fight the demons of Hell, ending in His defeat of the Anti-Christ.

Stan blames Francine for getting them left behind, and she angrily leaves him. Stan teams up with a guy who claims to be Jesus. Meanwhile, Francine meets and falls for a nice fellow who turns out to be the real Jesus.

It seems that Jesus’s status has changed as part of the Second Coming. He doesn’t have much of his holy power, so he’ll need to lead an army.  On the other hand, He’s allowed to marry – and Francine accepts his proposal.

Exactly seven years later – on Christmas – Commander Jesus tracks down Stan.

Stan has been fighting demons on his own. He’s bitter, scarred, and angry enough to smack Jesus across the face. (Jesus simply turns the other cheek. Stan smacks that side too.)

Jesus informs Stan that the Anti-Christ has captured Francine, and he needs Stan’s help to rescue her. Stan agrees, on the condition that he finally be raptured to Heaven. (You’ll recognize “Armageddon Stan’s Trailer” and Klaus the goldfish has died in the previous years; he’s mounted in a plaque on a wall).

Side Note Bunny: You will also notice Armageddon Stan’s Rapture Cycle as he and Commander Jesus drive off on it. As they are stopped observing the chaos, you will also see the Flying Sword Demon and his crew ready to attack. Stan takes down two of them with his shotgun, Commander Jesus takes down the Flying Sword Demon with his “Cross” Bow.

Flying Sword Demon Armageddon Stan Rapture Cycle

After getting a ride from Roger’s spaceship, they storm the headquarters of the Anti-Christ – a silly, effeminate character who speaks mostly in reversed Bible quotations (“Condemn them, Mother…” instead of “Forgive them, Father…”). Despite this, he’s a dangerous foe, and critically wounds Stan before being killed by Jesus.

Francine is rescued, but in true action-movie style, the headquarters is about to be destroyed. Stan tells Commander Jesus and Francine to…well, leave him behind, so they can get out in time. Jesus offers to rapture him to avoid dying in the explosion, but Stan declines; the spell would take too long. As the two escape, Stan lights a cigar, and says “Merry Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Jesus”, as the blast consumes him.

Stan finds himself in the lobby of Heaven. He learns that everyone’s paradise is tailored to them personally. (Steve’s Heaven involved a beautiful virgin girl riding a unicorn that produced pepper-jack cheeseburgers). Stan realizes that his “paradise” would be living with his family again. He passes through the door – and finds himself back home as if nothing had happened.

The two coolest things about this episode:

  • If you think about it, every episode of American Dad! after this one actually takes place in Stan’s Heaven. (But that doesn’t explain the framed Klaus plaque on their living room wall…)
  • I enjoyed the portrayal of Jesus as a tough, two-fisted action hero (wearing Holy Hand Grenades!) much better than the lying serial adulterer shown in the “2000-Year-Old Virgin” episode of Family Guy. But that’s probably just me.

There you have it, a rundown of where some of the New Character/Costumes for Armageddon Stan and Commander Jesus came from along with a few other items. Thanks again ShawnVW.

What do you think of the episode? Did you recognize where these items came from? Did you manage to get Armageddon Stan and Commander Jesus? Let us know.

  1. Actually I was hoping the golden turd Roger produced thanks to Taco Bueno? would have a bigger part in this event. I whis when we tapped it the game would go into letterbox view like the episodes and give a chance for premium curency.

  2. The Anti-Christ is Haley and Jeff’s once adopted son, Nemo. He appears as a child in the episode “Season’s Beatings.” If you didn’t figure it out: Nemo spelled backeards is “Omen,” which is a reference to the horror movie series.

    Also Apoc Stan’s cycle is a refetence to the movie Easy Rider.

    • I like the part when Jeff realises that Nemo is Omen backwards, and then Roger points out that he chose the name. I also like Jeff’s reason, “I named him Nemo after my favourite literary character, Nemo, from the novelization of the film, Finding Nemo”.

  3. SPOILER ALERT: Loved the end where Klaus Heissler is stuffed and mounted to the wall at the bottom of the stairs near the door.

  4. TY for seeing the Sword Demon! There are other little visual things from this episode also. Like the skull piles! Awesomeness!

    I’m just curious where Warrior Roger is coming from…. I’m thinking the episode where he is on his home planet, but just haven’t figured it out unless it’s totally random. Which would be cool,too. 🙂

  5. Woah, I like to believe that every episode after that one in American Dad! is just, you know, a regular episode. Not some sort of Rick & Morty type thing. The only time I ever noted where one episode actually truly did affect something in the series that was completely really huge in a Seth MacFarlane show, and not counting Brian’s death; would be “And then there were fewer.”

    Idk, it just seems a little too mind blowing that this would happen. It just seems like a side plot episode no better than the Hot Tub episode. Like just a story or something.
