We recap the Apple TV+ series Mythic Quest Season 3 Episode 9, “The Year of Phil,” which contains spoilers.

The Mythic Quest film’s ongoing storyline has taken a back seat lately, but in ‘The Year Of Phil’, the guest star Joe Manganiello is back, and the Hollywood leader is flexing his acting skills. The penultimate episode explores the power struggles between Joe Manganiello and the producer David Brittlesbee (David Hornby) while Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao) prepares for his Playpen pitch. There is also another subplot involving Carol (Naomi Ekperiguine) and Phil (Derek Waters)as ageism enters the workplace.

Mythic Quest Season 3 Episode 9 Recap

The Hollywood actor begins proceedings as David and his team capture test footage for the studio. David is thrilled to work with the pro, and Joe adds that it’s his dream role. David tells the assistant Joe that his job is to schmooze the actor, but this tactic instantly backfires. Joe brought his own custom-made mask to the ensemble that he plans to wear for all of filming, at the The Mandalorian. It would, however, be a nightmare, instantly losing the faith of fans and bosses in the adaptation. Jo wants David to force the actor to comply, but the producer agrees to all of Joe’s demands instead in a cowardly manner.

Meanwhile, Poppy practices for her big throw. Dana agrees the pitch is good, but Poppy lacks confidence. She must be as confident as Ian it’s if she wants to succeed. Poppy is stressed about the impending launch, putting too much pressure on herself. Dana promises to teach Poppy how to be more confident in the limited time they have left before the all-important introductory meeting.

The episode’s third subplot focuses on our title Phil. Carol gives a speech to all of her new employees. She brags about her leadership skills Brad and Rachelwho started out as strangers and are now involved in monetizing the business.

Carol then introduces Phil, the art director, in a really dull way. She admits that he does not represent the philosophy of the company. It’s old school and to be honest, just plain old. Phil jumps up from his chair, ecstatic that Carol has finally admitted the truth. He calls this disposable comment discrimination and ageism. Phil believes this mistake will be his saviour, his time to reap the rewards of all his years of hard work. This will be Phil’s year.

Back at the recording studio, Joe practices his movements with the mask. In secret, assistant Jo enlisted Ian’s help in convincing the actor to remove the mask once and for all. Ian quickly arrives on set to get down to business. David is annoyed that Jo went behind his back but can’t wait for Joe Manganiello to submit. Ian stresses that he is ready to fight the actor if he needs to. David orders him to return to GrimPop, but Ian cautiously talks about being on sabbatical from the company, a self-imposed exile, if you will. The creator of Mythic Quest decides to solve this actor problem head-on. If you’re expecting a fight, you’ll be bitterly disappointed.

Ironically, Joe and Ian get along more like a house on fire. Joe says he’s a longtime fan and player before asking Ian to sign his mask. It also doesn’t look like Ian will convince Joe to do anything.

Carol brings in Brad and Rachel to help her with the ensuing trial. They are looking at all the employees they could possibly fire so they can replace them with older workers. Unfortunately, Carol has done such a good job with diversity that almost all employees fall into a protected category. Meanwhile, Phil is trying to gather signatures for his class action lawsuit, but can’t seem to find support. He heads to the tester’s room for help, but finds that Carol has already hired older employees in their place. Game, set and match.

Dana tries to teach Poppy how to be more confident, but Poppy can’t get out of her own head. She argues that Dana is starting to look a lot like Ian, which Dana doesn’t deny. Although Dana says they differ in their appreciation of Poppy. Ian likes Poppy, unlike Dana. They start discussing “their” game and Poppy is surprised to learn that Dana thinks Playpen is partly her creation. Poppy built it, but Dana thinks she saw its potential, which is an ego move in itself. Poppy seems to be inspired by Dana’s confidence and tries to copy her bravado.

The ending explained

Another leader who needs confidence lessons is David. He allowed Joe Manganiello to step on him, and now Ian is doing the same. Joe and Ian play fight together, bonding and having fun. Ian thinks they might be twins. David calls Ian into his office and orders him to leave.

It is where David steps up and gains confidence. He tells Ian that he no longer works here; therefore, he has no authority. If he doesn’t leave, he’ll call the cops. Ian, who is feeling rather vulnerable at the moment, agrees to the demands and leaves.

Jo is surprised by David’s progress and sets up a nasty plan to rally actor Joe as well. David starts yelling at Jo for not listening to his instructions, but Jo pressed the speakerphone button and actor Joe thinks he was spoken to instead. Joe gladly takes the feedback and agrees to drop the mask.

As the episode draws to a close, a much more confident Poppy strides forward. The pitch goes well, but the investor passes the game anyway. It’s the same person she rejected at the start of the season, and he’s still bitter about that interaction. Although he thinks Playpen is still worthless regardless of its history, stating that no one will invest in it. Poppy realizes she may have wasted a lot of time on an unprofitable product.
