We see the massive shadow on the wall as [[FutureBadAss Bishop]] yells '' [[OhCrap "Oh, no! It's Nimrod!"]] '' -- when a [[RealMenWearPink man-sized, pink robot]] appears, and [[HopeSpot everyone breathes a slight sigh of relief...]] which disappears completely as Nimrod [[CurbStompBattle then promptly proceeds to beat everyone present like a red-haired stepchild.]]
