We get to see Fred Tupper’s antics after a long while. What news would cause Fred to believe his days are numbered? It will be very interesting to see Fred change from enemy to friend. Do you think he will unintentionally insult the Muslims even while trying to be their friend? What sort of remarks will he make while learning about the culture? It should make for a very funny episode.
