Now in the pits of creative despair, Owen has been reduced to streaming to a handful of conspiracy theorists and cult members for Superchat change. With a series of burnt bridges and lost opportunities, the blacklisted entertainer finds himself at an impasse, isolated by his own narcassistic insanity. Written by Porsalin
