is the fortieth and final episode of Season 2 of The Amazing World of Gumball
The Wattersons are surprised to discover that their past actions have consequences.
The Wattersons are at home, reminiscing and laughing as they go through their family album. The doorbell rings, Richard goes to answer it, and Mrs. Jotunheim is at the door. She states that since a large portion of Elmore has been damaged after her son's rampage, the Wattersons must pay for the damages and reconstruction. Shortly after she leaves, Principal Brown enters the house and announces that Gumball and Darwin must restart school all the way from kindergarten, shocking the whole family. Soon, Richard receives a phone call from the police about being sent to prison if he doesn't pay the fines for his reckless driving, but he just shrugs it off. The Wattersons discover they must pay the bill worth $800,000 by tomorrow, or they will lose their house. Anais realizes their past actions are causing consequences, but before she can formulate a plan, Gumball, Darwin, and Richard run off.
