The Sunniest Moments From The 100th Episode Of ‘Always Sunny’: ‘The Gang Saves The Day’

The Gang got ambitious for their 100th episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and I really can’t imagine them hitting the mark any with more accuracy as they treated us to a high concept departure that further explores the later season theme of diving head first into character psychologies and the bizzare idiosyncrasies that make Mac, Dennis, Dee, Charlie, and Frank tick.

“The Gang Saves the Day” is exactly what you want from a 100th episode: different and blown out enough to acknowledge the achievement while never feeling self-congratulatory and out of place. All the segments rang true to our merry band of dysfunctional characters and — while maybe not delivering the sharp interactions we’ve come accustomed to in standard episodes — gave us a unique glimpse without straying.

All were great, but I think we can agree that the animated window into Charlie Kelly’s mind and soul is what took things to next level exemplary. Let’s take a look character by character, shall we?

Mac Saves The Day


Mac’s fantasy was the most predictable and straightforward of all, even if he still doesn’t understand a pun. He of course averts the crisis, badass-style.

And in heroic death, forces his friends to realize they should have never doubted his awesomeness before leaving them to forever feel hollow inside.

He then of course goes to Mac Heaven where he’ll forever be surrounded by beefy dudes who compliment his sweet moves. Mac perfection achieved.
