For Halloween It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia delivers a comedic horror episode that finds the gang lost in the woods, thrown in jail, chased by zombie McPoyles, and even attacked by one of their own. “Maureen Ponderosa’s Wedding Massacre” proves to be a pretty damn good mix of crazy humor and a legitimately creepy collection of the old friends of the Paddy’s crew – the McPoyles.
After Dennis (Glenn Howerton) discovers his ex-wife Maureen (Catherine Reitman) is getting married he and the gang decide to crash the Friday the 13th wedding. (Dennis wants to make sure the bride actually goes through with the wedding so he can stop paying alimony). One wild night in the middle of the wilderness later Dennis, Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), and Frank (Danny DeVito) all find themselves in jail at a loss to explain to the police what went so horribly wrong.
On arriving at the isolated wedding spot the gang gets their first surprise when they discover Liam McPoyle (Jimmi Simpson) is the groom, the second surprise is the arrival of Frank and Dee (Kaitlin Olson) who wanted to break-up the wedding for no reason other than to screw-over Dennis. Surrounded in the middle of the woods by the inbred, and increasingly odd acting, McPoyles, the gang starts freaking out but Dennis refuses to leave until he gets the bride and groom’s signatures and makes sure, no matter what, that the wedding goes off without a hitch.
The officer is incredulous over the gang’s depiction of events but thankfully Dee finally shows up to explain the zombie like behavior of the party guests – all of whom had been drugged by Bill Ponderosa (Lance Barber) who spiked the milk with bath salts. The bath salts explain most of the night’s odd behavior, but before the gang is released Dennis will have to come clean on his actions that night which will haunt him for the rest of his life.
