Arbiter to Claire

Crush is the fifteenth episode of the seventh season of Arby 'n' the Chief.

Summary Edit

After a long absence, Claire returns online, eager to reconnect with the Arbiter. Eugene obtains dirt on Brody via Tyler.

Plot Edit

Claire, having finally returned online, is playing with several other players, saying that she is excited to meet with a friend who is "dear" to her. 

Meanwhile, a player requests to join Eugene's clan, but is banned by Colin, while Tyler informs Eugene of a rumor that Brody is homosexual, and suggests that they use that information as leverage if he "steps out of line" again, or simply if they feel like it.

Later on, the three join Arbiter and Chief, and continue their mischief using Fragban in another server. While Eugene and Colin scan the map using their sniper rifles, Chief, Arbiter and Tyler bully a young player, who recognizes Arbiter as the player who defended him from the player who neglected his child. Arbiter reluctantly frags him.

Momentarily, Claire joins the server, hoping to catch up with Arbiter. Arbiter angrily shoots down Claire regarding their friendship and the fact she was never around to help him during his time of need, while the others look on, gaining levity from their confrontation. As Claire walks away, Eugene "accidentally" frags her, leaving her avatar lying in front of Arbiter.
