Plot[ edit ] When the boys learn that a black girl named Nicole has transferred to the school and joined the cheerleading team, Cartman assumes that she will pair up with Tokenthe only black boy in their school. But when Token demurs at this, Cartman assumes that he is shy and decides to play matchmaker. However, after he overhears her tell the other girls that she has a crush on KyleCartman tells her that he and Kyle are a gay couple, a lie that spreads to the other girls. He then arranges for Token and Nicole to get locked in the boy's locker room overnight so they can develop a relationship, a ploy that is successful.
This storyline mainly riffed on the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal, with Chip obviously filling in for Weinstein himself and Randy and the others playing the part of the many Hollywood figures trying to distance themselves from him in the last couple weeks.
The idea being the only thing that separates a true monster from a simple hedonistic pleasure seeker is power and the willingness to abuse it.
If nothing else, it might help this one stand the test of time better than some of the more topical humor-driven episodes of recent years. This episode also gave us the first major appearance from President Garrison this season.
But that was sort of the point of his appearance here. He misses the good old days as a member of the witch club, and this episode offered him a brief chance to relive old glories.
On the other hand, he really is the architect of his own misery. He deserves to suffer. That dark side has returned this year and was on full display as Cartman played the witch situation to his advantage. And that fueled what was by far the best scene of the episode, as Cartman dealt with a bout of victim blaming at the police station.
Honestly, that scene satirized the whole Weinstein situation better and more efficiently than the witch storyline. The Verdict South Park continues to establish a winning formula this season, focusing on more standalone storylines that still pull from current headlines in clever ways.
