Scott Pilgrim Takes Off Episode 5: The episode is shown as a documentary on the behind-the-scenes of the “Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life” movie. Ramona started working as Envy’s stunt double in the movie because security wasn’t letting her in, so she chose to get work and be close to Todd.
Ramona wanted to ask Todd about Scott Pilgrim, but Envy doesn’t let her talk to Todd. Todd and Envy were in the same band, and they are also lovers. Todd and Envy are very popular among music fans, but they have zero experience in acting. The director tries to shoot scenes with Envy, Todd, and Wallace, but it doesn’t work out because Envy and Todd couldn’t control their urges. Only five scenes were shot for the movie, and the budget was increased due to the delay.
Wallace tells his plan to the director, and they change that scene. Todd now has to look at Wallace and kiss him instead of Envy. Todd starts liking Wallace after the kiss, and the two start having a sexual affair. Envy didn’t know about it until Todd breaks up with Envy on the documentary and tells her about his feelings for Wallace.
