Todd & the Book of Pure Evil - A Farewell to Curtis's Arm
The first season finale has Atticus seizing control over the Satanists from his father, no longer taking orders or being subservient, at the Crowley Retirement Home. For the majority of this episode, as he would for the duration of the series, Atticus attempts to gain control of the Book of Pure Evil. Curtis has been contending with a missing arm as bullies enjoy knocking off his prosthetic replacement. How this happened is soon told to us...and it involves Todd. Todd is distracted by nightmares regarding killing his three friends while under the spell of the Book of Pure Evil. He disregards his friends when they need him for help, and so the three stray into various subplots. Curtis is lured by the Book of Pure Evil to accept a *new arm* but it actually transforms his absent limb into a demon arm! Hannah grapples with telling Curtis she loves him, as Jenny heads for the retirement home to find her missing father (gone a year). Todd goes to Jimmy for advice but is hit in the crotch with a broom handle, told he should be his own man! Okaaaaaay. It turns out to help Todd, though, and Curtis is fortunate it does. Todd is temporarily influenced by the lingering trio of "loser-insulting" metalheads, always outside the school, with passing ridicule for pretty much everyone. As Jenny tries to rescue her cataleptic father, besieged by the elderly who all hail Satan! So Atticus has a home there for the upcoming season. Todd will fashion a sword of considerable length in the metal shop, closed down since an accident later determined to involve him cutting off Curtis's arm with the wood saw! So Curtis gives Atticus the Book of Pure Evil while he remembers Todd being responsible for his lost arm due to Atticus' hypnosis recalling it from repression, inspiring him to seek revenge. A giant demon arm prosthetic Curtis wears and Todd now wielding a sword, not to mention Atticus lopping off his wheelchair Satan-devotee daddy's head off...just another crazed excursion into the wild hijinks of Crowley High and Retirement Home.

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?
Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.
Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
