With only two teams remaining, the host takes the remaining contestants to London, England, where their challenge is to capture a criminal before he catches them. In the end, two criminals are apprehended, bringing one back into the competition, joining a team, and giving his captors the victory instead of the original winners. One contestant is too late to discover the evil on his team, and ends up eliminated as a result. Meanwhile, two contestants get reacquainted while a third watches this unravel.
The episode opens with all of the remaining contestants sitting in the economy class section of the Total Drama Jumbo Jet, due to the fact that Chris and Chef required the winner's section of the plane for planning the next challenge. Heather complains about economy class, saying that they won the last challenge and should not be there. Sierra replies, saying that Chris needs first class for a special guest, and "what Chris wants", then she is cut off by Heather, who completes her sentence, saying "Chris takes. From us." The contestants converse with each other about various things. Gwen and Courtney are bonding over Gwen's sunburned hand, despite their former dislike for one another. Sierra is yet again on her pizza box laptop "updating her Tweeter", while Noah mocks her, mimicking Sierra's actions, saying in a girly voice "Must learn how to make nose shakes like Owen. That will impress Cody!", making Owen laugh. Noah and Owen's antics begin to irritate Alejandro, so he leaves economy class by himself to walk around the plane. While walking past the winners' compartment, he overhears that Chris and Chef are talking to a mysterious cloaked man to "take out" the contestants, mentioning that a contestant's death would cause a boost in ratings. A horrified Alejandro tries to hide from their view, but is found by the mysterious figure. Alejandro screams and the screen fades to black.Once they arrive at their destination, the group, minus Alejandro, is forced to parachute to the ground due to Chris not receiving permission to land the plane at their new location. It soon discovered that Chef miscounted parachutes, and they are one parachute short, so Noah is forced to share one with Owen. After landing on the Tower Bridge, the contestants board a double-decker bus, where Chris explains the night's challenge. The challenge is to catch the infamous British serial killer, "Jack the Ripper," who terrorized Victorian England and whose identity remains unknown to this day. He tells them that they will have clues hidden in various locations. Heather then notices that Alejandro is missing, to which Chris reveals that he had already been caught by the killer. Courtney and Gwen sit together and talk, sharing their knowledge of London history. The contestants then begin the challenge at the Tower of London.
Chris announces to the contestants that they need to strip two guards in front of the tower to find a clue hidden in their clothes. The contestants are shocked and disgusted, but complete the challenge, while singing Changing Guard Mix. Team Amazon are the first to finish and head off to where the first clue takes them. Meanwhile, Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot has trouble with the challenge, as Tyler thinks he has to use his teeth to strip the guard and does so, when he does not have to. Also, Owen is playing with the hat, not knowing that the clue is inside of it all along.
Heather, Gwen, and Courtney head up the tower into the torture chamber that Anne Boleyn was held and beheaded in, while Sierra demands a kiss from Cody, blocking his progress upstairs. Team Amazon has to put one of the members of the team on a torture device to get the next clue. They choose Heather, and she is very upset with them, but is outvoted two to one. They complete the task, get the clue, and head up to the dining hall. Cody and Sierra have at that point been kidnapped by Jack the Ripper. The other team then goes to the torture device portion on the challenge. They use Tyler and complete the task, as he claimed to be extremely flexible due to his yoga exercises. Tyler starts screaming despite not being stretched yet. When Noah tells Tyler off, Tyler says he will become quiet, "sweaty yoga-ish Monk dude style." During the task, Noah makes some comments about Alejandro, saying he doesn't trust him. When they leave, they accidentally leave Tyler behind, only to return to him gone, having been captured by the killer. Heather is a "lookout" while Gwen and Courtney search the banquet hall. After handling a pack of guard-dog corgis, they succeed in finding the final clue, only to find Heather missing. They are mildly concerned, but think from the clue that they have to head to the neighborhood of Whitechapel, where Gwen states Jack the Ripper performed most of his murders.Back at the dining hall, Noah quickly finds the final clue to locating Jack the Ripper and Owen deciphers it to stand for the double-decker bus they arrived in. He and Owen hastily make their way back to it. At this point, Gwen and Courtney are in the only building open in Whitechapel, which happens to be a punk rock club. Inside it, they see someone who they are surprised to see, but don't reveal who it is as of yet. Meanwhile, on the bus, the Ripper grabs Noah and locks him in the glass driver's booth, but with the help of the guard dogs from earlier, Owen is able to capture the Ripper, and tie him up in a bag.
Both teams return to the plane to reveal who they have captured. Noah and Owen reveal the Ripper, who is then revealed to be a malnourished and zombie-like Ezekiel. Chris explains that he had promised Ezekiel that he could return to the game if he managed to not get caught, but since he was, Chef throws Ezekiel out of the plane. The other team has caught "a criminal" who turns out to be Duncan, who is then put back in the game on Team Chris Is Really Really Really Really Hot. They also show the other contestants who were captured earlier, who had seen everything on-camera. Alejandro is very upset with Noah due to his unflattering comparison of him to an eel. To Noah and Owen's surprise, Chris declares Team Amazon the winners of the challenge for finding Duncan. At the Barf Bag Ceremony, Noah is voted off. Owen is upset at this, but Noah brushes it off, strapping his parachute on and simply giving Owen a subtle warning about Alejandro, saying to "beware of eels!" before taking the Drop of Shame. While Noah is seen jumping out of the plane, Ezekiel is seen crouched on the wheels of the plane, growling ferociously as Noah falls past him.
In a separate part of the plane, Courtney is telling Duncan that if he ever left her like that again, it wouldn't be pretty, and happily hugs him, with Gwen behind her. Later, Gwen is seen in the confessional where she says that she feels jittery over Duncan's return. At that moment, Duncan walks in because the lock to the confessional door was broken and, after some brief banter, they begin to kiss. Tyler pops his head in and is shocked, but leaves without a word. In the plane's cockpit, Chris happily wonders how Courtney will feel about this and if Tyler will ever tell her, before signing off the episode.oily, eely company." Noah fortunately lands in a small pond, but is then immediately attacked by a swarm of electric eels.
