The episodes in the Psycho Series and the vlogs which accompany them occur in sequential order to the YouTube videos. The series started on December 22, 2012 and eventually ended on June 6, 2016.
These events occur before the series and in the earlier moments leading up to the series.
- Jesse, Jeffrey Jr., Jeffrey Sr, Theresa, and all of their family and friends support the growing channel "McJuggerNuggets"
- Jesse's channel is beginning to grow further.
- Dad begins to grow affectionate to the TV in the living room. He reminds Jeffrey and Jesse that they aren't allowed to use it under any circumstances, but they often ignore this.
- Jeffrey is prepared to film Dad's next flip-out as a prank, to humiliate Jesse's McJuggerNuggets channel.
- Dad returns one evening after work to find Jesse using his TV, so he burns and throws Jesse's Xbox 360, destroying it in the process (Psycho Dad Destroys Xbox)
- Jesse learns that Psycho Dad Destroys Xbox has been uploaded and threatens Jeffrey Jr. to tell their father about it for some time.
- A year later, Jeffrey has gotten sick of Jesse's blackmailing and pranks him by beginning a shootout with his friends, and destroying his camera in the process as an act of revenge for his humiliation. (Psycho Brother's Filming Freakout)
- Jesse then becomes annoyed at his broken possessions. He attempts to gain revenge by showing his Dad the Psycho Videos on YouTube, which results in the destruction of Jeffrey's laptop. He then forces Jesse to show it to his brother, which results in a chase. (Psycho Dad Axes Laptop)
- Jesse has grown his hair long ever since, so Jeffrey pranks him by cutting it in his sleep. (Psycho Brother Clips Head)
Dad becomes very concerned that Jesse needs to find a job and stop playing video games after he graduates from college.
- Jesse's dad gets concerned about Jesse's future.
- He eventually comes to the conclusion that the video games are the main reason why Jesse won't get a job.
- Jesse comes home one day to find all of his video games have been taken out of their cases and put on the lawn. A message reading "GET A JOB! GET A LIFE!!! No more GAMES!!!!! -Dad" is written on Jesse's whiteboard.
- Dad shreds these games with a lawnmower as Jesse refuses to admit that he hasn't gotten a decent job which causes him to scream in agony and cry in sadness. (Psycho Dad Shreds Video Games)
- After this, Jesse invites his friend Buzz to the house to do some YouTube videos. Jesse was grounded from video games for two weeks at the time by Jeffrey Sr. for refusing to find a job outside of YouTube. Buzz brings a Game Boy Advance SP along, which is tossed on the floor (but not destroyed) by Dad. Jesse gets enraged and smashes Dad's TV. Psycho Dad kicks Jesse out of the house for the night and goes to Buzz's home. He was allowed back in and presumably grounded for an extended period of time. (Psycho Kid Smashes TV)
- Jesse then acquires another Xbox 360, however he knows he cannot play it because he is grounded until he applies for a job. Therefore, he moves into the Morton Building to sneak it from his Dad. Jeffrey Jr. finds out about his video game stash while Jesse is taking a dump and tells Psycho Dad after Jesse returns. He soon catches Jesse off guard and throws his Xbox into the pool. (Psycho Dad Drowns Xbox)
- Jesse decides to search for a job, and gets an interview.

- Halloween is approaching, so Dad, Jeffrey and Corn play a prank of Jesse by squirting him with ketchup and scaring him with a chainsaw. (Psycho Kid's Halloween Bloodbath)
- Jesse gains revenge by doing same with his parents. However, he forgets to remove the blades from the chainsaw, making it a rather dangerous prank. They get concerned and eventually Jeff blames the video games for teaching Jesse the violence, and promptly chainsaws and sledgehammers the Xbox One which upsets him greatly. He did eventually get a replacement from his mom.(Psycho Dad Chainsaws Xbox One)
- The family begins to have massive preparations for the Thanksgiving feast

- Jesse's mom gives him a Wii U without Dad knowing.
- Jesse celebrates 100,000 subscribers, and receives a YouTube Play Button.
This is the point where Jeffrey begins to manipulate Dad so Jesse can lose more possessions. Although Dad still feels as if Jesse needs to get a job, Jeffrey is the primary reason why any further Psycho Videos occur and therefore the main antagonist.
- Jesse decides to stream Minecraft using Jeffrey's Xbox One. Jeffrey eventually finds out, and informs Dad as Jesse starts to insult him on the stream. This causes Dad to smash the monitor. Jesse has a freakout, unaware he is doing so in front of his stream, which is still running. He then proves to the audience that the Psycho Videos are real (except for those Jeffrey sets up, but the reactions are still unstaged). (Psycho Dad Raids Stream)
- Jeffrey discovers the Play Button, and is jealous as he filmed most of the Psycho videos (which are the primary reason why McJuggerNuggets is as popular as it is).
- Jesse then gains revenge on Jeffrey again by filming his breakup with his girlfriend Kate, resulting in the destruction of an iPad (which is later revealed to be an Android tablet). (Psycho Girlfriend Breaks iPad)
- Jesse celebrates 500,000 subscribers by doing a video showcasing a household celebration, however Jeffrey runs off with the Play Button. They arouse their dad, who destroys the trophy to end the conflict. Both Jesse and Jeffrey are upset. (Psycho Dad Shatters YouTube Play Button)
- Jesse and his dad are invited onto the British TV show Virtually Famous. They travel to London, where they are recorded for the show. After the show, Jeff Sr. destroys and soaks Jesse's Nintendo DS as he has been overusing it during the trip. (Psycho Dad Pounds Nintendo DS)
- Upon their return to the US, Jeffrey pranks Jesse by interrupting his Wii U gaming session by informing him that a new Play Button has arrived. He locks him out of the house once he leaves, and will not let him back in until he takes his clothes off and makes a snow angel. Mom eventually lets him back in. (Psycho Brother's Frozen Lockout)
- Mark and Corn decide to have a LAN party at Jesse's house. They suspect things coming so they bring low-end laptops. As Jeffrey invaded this party late at night, Dad is woken up, argues with Jesse for waking him up, and flips the table when Jesse calls him crazy, destroying all laptops on it. Corn is not seen again in a McJuggerNuggets video for quite some time after this. (Psycho Dad Crashes WoW LAN Party)
Jesse is eventually booted from the house. Therefore, his YouTube videos are almost exclusively vlogs uploaded via Jeffrey's laptop (during the stay at Eagle's Landing) and by other means.
- Jeffrey and Jesse agree to smash some of Dad's childhood trophies for the destruction of the Play Button, and other electronics. Jesse eventually confronts Dad and does this. Dad grabs Jesse's Wii U (as Jeffrey refused to lock the door) and grills it straight through. Jesse flips the grill in retaliation, causing conflict from his parents. Jesse is instantly booted from the house. (Psycho Dad Grills Wii U)
- Jesse spends the night in the Morton Building with supplies he was given from Mom and Jeffrey.
- Jesse sets up a tent he names "Eagle's Landing" in the backyard, hoping his Dad won't find out. He eventually grabs electronics and powers the tent.
- Jesse does a supply run into the house to grab Skyrim to play on his new Xbox 360. His Dad nearly finds him thanks to Jeffrey attempting to give him away.
- Jesse eventually does another supply run, to prank his dad, and he discovers the tent but doesn't care.
- Jesse is then called out by his dad to warn him of his actions, destroying his microphone in the process.
- Jesse then lights a campfire as a prank, and receives a letter from Dad that his electricity has been cut and that he should consider staying at a friends house. (Message From Psycho Dad)
- Jesse, after viewing on Twitter what he should do, plugs in the cord to his tent using the house's power.
- The next day, Dad finds that Jesse disobeyed his order to not use the electricity, so he runs it over the tent with a backhoe, destroying all the electronics and Jeffrey's laptop in the process. (Psycho Dad Flattens Gaming Lair)
- Jeffrey creates his own YouTube channel named BigBrudda.
- Jesse relocates to Zack's house temporarily.
- He then decides to move to Pennsylvania to live with his girlfriend.
- Jesse acquires a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)
- He then relocates to his Uncle Larry's house upon recommendation from his followers on Twitter. He does not mind Jesse's gaming addiction.
- He then receives a voicemail from Dad outlining that he needs to get a job. (Voicemail From Psycho Dad)
- Jesse then sets up Phoenix Landing, a second gaming lair.
- Jesse steals some of Larry's Corona, who confronts him about this. Dad then visits Larry, who is trying to hide Jesse in his house. Jesse becomes suspicious that he is scheming things. Jesse and Larry agree to put an end to Psycho Dad's plot. (Psycho Dad Surprise Visit)
- Jesse finds that his cousin Tom had informed Dad that he has relocated to Larry's house, and confronts him about this. But they manage to reconcile afterwards.
- Jeffrey smashes more trophies on Dad's lawn to frame Jesse. He also initiates a paintball prank, which was reversed by Jesse as he has seen the video.

- Jesse celebrates 1,000,000 subscribers. Larry and Tom are actually excited too.
- Jeffrey graffiti's the RV, believing Jesse was the one who hacked the BigBrudda channel.
- A few days later, he drives the RV off to Dad's house, again in retaliation for the hacking. Jesse shows Dad a message he put together explaining that YouTube can earn money. He also shows him that Jeffrey destroyed the trophies, despite the video being deleted in the hacking. He smashes Jeffrey's most expensive camera and gets mad at him for setting everything up. (Psycho Dad Reacts to One Million Juggies)
- Jesse is allowed back in the house under the condition that he's paying him and working for him for free.
Return to Ridgway Household
These events take place after Jesse is allowed in the house.
- The family goes to a wedding, where Dad and Larry argue over Jeffrey's dangerous prank.
- Jesse and some of his friends play basketball with Larry.
- On May 5, 2015, Jesse returns to streaming; however, the first stream that he makes (involving him and his girlfriend playing Grand Theft Auto V) is shut down by various DDoS attacks and later, the same individuals get his address, frames Jesse for killing and torturing his parents and a SWAT team intervenes. The next day, Jesse makes a vlog video calling out the pranksters.
- Jesse finds mowing the lawn rather hard, but his dad thinks he's just lazy and threatens him with exile once more. Later in the day, he gets help from a friend in sorting fan mail.
- Jesse has mother's day brunch with his mom, which they both enjoy immensely.
- Jesse tries another stream, but is forced to end it early because of another DDoS attack.
- Jesse provides an update on his life, and visits Uncle Larry and Tom.
- Jesse revives an Angry Nerd character from some of his earlier videos for an unboxing video of a PS4 he received in fan mail and later makes a video clearing up any confusion by fans who thought he hated the PS4.
- A major argument between Jesse and his girlfriend takes place, but they remain together. In addition, Jeffrey Sr. gets mad at him for not being around on Wednesday for lawn-mowing.
- Jesse mocks some of the many hate comments on his videos.
Arrest and Return to Larry's
- A few days later, Dad has Jeffrey and Jesse mow 9 lawns. While on the way, they pick up 12 bags of fertilizer. Dad tasks the boys with loading them onto the van. While Jesse helps out, Jeffrey, possibly seeking revenge for his destroyed camera, starts videotaping him with the camera Jesse had brought. Jesse sees this and loses it, starting a large argument in the shop with Jeffrey and his Dad, with Jesse losing it even more and knocking things to the ground. Jesse is then arrested by a police officer (Psycho Kid Gets Arrested) but was eventually released. It is revealed later on that the police officer was a fake. He was one of Jeff Sr.’s friends who was hired by him & Jeff Jr to teach Jesse about respecting others and their personal belongings.
- After being released the following day, Uncle Larry picks up Jesse from the police station. Jesse, regretful of his actions, decides to stay to Uncle Larry's house to talk it off and apologize. Uncle Larry says that if Jesse ever wants to take a break from his family, he is welcome to come to him. Jesse later says he is not officially kicked out of the house, but he just needs to get away, knowing very well what his dad will likely do.
- That same day, Uncle Larry also gets his new YouTube Channel: Larry's Lounge
- The duo go mini golfing on Memorial Day.
Second Return to Ridgway Household
- The day after Memorial Day, having decided that he had spent enough time away from home, thanks Uncle Larry and returns to the Ridgway Household. Upon entry, he finds that Jeffrey earned his Play Button for his Big Brudda channel. Jesse senses that Jeffrey is acting strange and that something isn't right.
- Later that evening, Dad returns home with Jesse's monthly rent, which totals up to $830.00, $365 of which comes from his rage at the hardware store. He later negotiates with Dad, and Dad says that if he offers a sincere apology to the person at the hardware store, the $365 would be removed from his rent pay. Dad also tells Jesse that if he records it, that's a video that he wants to see.
- Jesse apologizes to the hardware store people, but is told that the woman seen calling the cops, Joan, didn't actually call the cops. He questions his dad about this, who does not answer the question but does take the $365 off the rent. His mom then tells him it was a Scared Straight sort of deal, with the intent of teaching Jesse a lesson, but unsurprisingly, Jesse is very angry and on the verge of tears that his family would do this to him. His mom then says she will schedule a family therapy session with Dr. Nelson.
- The Ridgway family goes to therapy, where they make no progress and Jesse goes into a rage when Dr. Nelson suggests that Jesse stop playing video games, and his dad agrees. In a later update, Jesse states that as a result of the session, he no longer has to work for his dad for free. (Psycho Family Therapy)
- Jesse finally manages to stream without a DDoS attack.
- It is not long before Dad discovers the Psycho Dad T-Shirts. Enraged that Jesse has once again been disrespecting him behind his back, he gets out the same backhoe he used to flatten Eagle's Landing and buries Jesse's video games and some of the shirts in a hole he carved out. Jesse manages to save some of his video games, but almost gets buried in the dirt in the process. (Psycho Dad Buries Video Games).
The Prank War
- Several weeks later, Jesse passes off the Play Button shattered by Psycho Dad as Jeffrey's Play Button and, while wearing a Master Chief mask and a tie, smashes the award with a hammer. Two days later, Jeffrey sees the video and, after bribing Corn with $100, plots to destroy Jesse's flat-screen television with his paintball gun. He goes through with it even after Jesse returns Jeffrey's actual, intact award, sending Jesse into a rage. Any effort by Jesse to tell his parents is met with Psycho Dad telling Jesse he doesn't want to get involved, and then gives him the bill for the month, with an extra charge for the botched therapy session with Dr. Nelson. Jesse then begins plotting revenge.
- Jesse has a phone conversation with Michael Green (AKA KidBehindACamera or Pickleboy, of the very similar Angry Grandpa Show).
- Psycho Dad yells at some fans for calling him that name during Fourth of July celebrations. (Psycho Dad Scares Children)
- While filming a Kung-Fu sketch with Uncle Larry, Jeffrey gets extremely unhappy with his role and quits, violating a deal they made. Larry, as a result, bans Jeffrey from going on the family trip to North Carolina and is forced to recast the role. (Psycho Brother's Kung-Fu Freakout)
- While the rest of the family is on vacation, Jeffrey, believing the filming of the Kung-Fu sketch was one big prank in retaliation for the destruction of Jesse's TV, burns Jesse's Master Chief Helmet. He tells everyone to tweet Jesse to see the video as soon as possible.
- Sure enough, it isn't long before Jesse sees the video after the flood of tweets he received. Devastated and outraged, he is puzzled whether to pretend this never happened or yell at him when he gets back home.
- Jeffrey posts a vlog stating the helmet's destruction didn't elicit what he wanted: an apology from Jesse and Larry for the "prank". He then asks viewers what they want him to destroy next, before deciding on choosing a certain number of objects based on the vlog's views, as well as promising he will review Batman: Arkham Knight after the Batgirl DLC is released. Many were not amused by his self-entitled behavior and portraying himself as the victim of a prank, when really, Jeffrey is being totally unreasonable and worthy of his main antagonist label.
- During sundown on the first day, Jesse, Larry, Dad, and Mom go outside on the balcony to sit down and discuss Larry's decision to ban Jeffrey from the North Carolina vacation. Larry starts by stating how it was all just a skit and how he, Jesse, and Jeffrey made an agreement (Larry would take care of the dogs on the 4th of July in exchange for the boys being part of Larry's Kung Ewww skit). Dad says he understands the deal, but thinks that Jeffrey should have been given a different costume. He goes further to state that maybe Larry should have cut Jeffrey some slack since this was a family vacation that they had been doing for years. However, Larry states how Jeffrey wouldn't apologize for his rage at the end and got Larry mad (Mom reminds everyone that it takes a lot to get Larry mad). After a long talk, Larry and Dad agreed that they'll talk to Jeffrey when they return home, but Jeffrey does indeed owe Larry (and Jesse) an apology. After Dad and Mom go back inside, Jesse and Larry stay outside. They both agree that Jeffrey needs to apologize, but Larry is concerned about what Jeffrey might do later on or what the latter is plotting. Jesse informs Larry that Jeffrey has already gotten started on revenge by burning one of Jesse's Halo Master Chief helmets. The talk ends with Jesse and Larry agreeing to go fishing the next day.
- Jeffrey decides to ransom the Larry's Lounge sign, all the while still demanding an apology (despite the fact that Dad and Larry agree it's the other way around).
- The next day, Jesse and Tom are playing video games, but are interrupted by multiple sources such as Psycho Dad. Later, Larry learns that Jeffrey is ransoming his sign, so he and Jesse concede and issue an apology for the Kung-Fu sketch.
- The family goes to a small amusement park, where Jeffrey Sr., Theresa, and Larry go on the bumper cars and drive go-karts. Jesse does not participate in either out of concern of exacerbating his brain injury. Later, he reveals he has contracted mono, and in a separate vlog posted later in the day, shows how bad it is, even having to miss going to a fancy restaurant.
- Jeffrey sees the apology, but calls it "bullsh*t", and also calls them out for inviting him down for the last full day. He goes through with destroying the Larry's Lounge sign, as well as Jesse's couch, using an entire arsenal of tools.
- While filming an episode of "Chillin' and Grillin'", Psycho Dad and Theresa get into an argument, and the former then chucks the house's Nintendo Wii into the lake from the upper floor deck, mistakenly believing it was Jesse's and calling it a consequence for constantly playing, completely ignoring the fact Jesse has mono and shouldn't be doing anything extraneous. This results in a huge argument involving Jesse, Larry, Jeffrey Sr., and Theresa, as Tom films the whole thing. Psycho Dad believes Jeffrey Jr. burned the couch and sign because Jesse and Larry provoked him, a clear sign of favoritism. Jesse can't argue much throughout the video due to spleen pain from his mono. (Psycho Dad Launches Wii)
- Jesse shows Larry the video of Jeffrey destroying the couch and sign. Larry is obviously upset about the sign, but surprisingly, Jesse isn't mad about the couch, since he actually hated it. The pair also can't understand why Jeffrey took a large wooden stick to the couch.
- Jeff Sr. strands Jesse on an island in the lake to get him outside while Larry manages to fish the Wii out of the lake.
- To get back on Jeffrey Jr. destroying his couch, Jesse gives away his Batman: Arkham Knight game to a guy named Ivan.
- Jeffrey Jr. confronts Jesse on him giving away his Batman: Arkham Knight game while knocking something over on the process, angering Jesse. After arguing for about two minutes, Jesse says that he's going to Los Angeles and if Jeffrey Jr. goes into his room after their argument or when he's gone, Jesse will give Jeffrey Jr. his mononucleosis. After Jesse teases with Jeffrey Jr. he makes him go back to his room and Jesse warns him again.
- To protect against Jeffrey's wrath, Jesse escalates the conflict to "biological warfare" by infecting EVERYTHING in his room to ensure that if Jeffrey destroys something, he himself will contract mono. The video showing this act is set to a song about mono written by his girlfriend.
- While Jesse is at LA with Corn, Jeffrey makes a vlog of him having access to his room with a surgical-type mask on to prevent himself from contracting mono. He then opens up the windows and turns on the fan to air out some of the "infected" air. After he ends the video, Jeffrey finds out that Jesse has hidden the key to his room, disabling Jeffrey's actions to escape.
- Jeffrey covers Jesse's room in plastic wrap to piss him off. Jesse is not amused, but is not angry, either. Many commentators have labelled this prank as Jeffrey's weakest one yet, with one commentators even stating that Michael Green (Pickleboy) has pulled better pranks.
- To get revenge, Jesse and his girlfriend team and spray "Liquid Ass" on multiple objects in Jeffrey's room. It works beautifully.
- The next day, Jesse is indisposed with mono, but has now gotten strep throat, so his girlfriend substitutes for the day. She also writes up a new song in ten minutes called "The Juggie Song".
- Jeffrey gives an update, in which he states he won't retaliate for the "Liquid Ass" prank until Jesse is a bit better, and is unwilling to prank his girlfriend. He also shows off his new beer pong table.
- Jesse tries to make a truce with Jeffrey, it doesn't work.
- Jeffrey gets revenge on Jesse's prank by spraying Liquid Ass in Jesse's car. The following day, Jesse goes to clean up the car and dispose of the stench, but he gets raided by Jeffrey when he shoots fireworks towards Jesse. Jesse escapes the attack moments later.
- Jeffrey soon acts up again, by swiping Jesse's July bill for his rent as a prank. Moments after, Jesse and Jeffrey Sr. argue about the problem. The bill was originally $315 but due to Jesse talking back rudely to Jeffrey Sr., an extra $300 was added.
- Jesse gets back at Jeffrey by switching up ingredients in Jeffrey's meal.
- Jesse responds to more hate comments.
- During a live stream, Jeffrey uses a fog machine to smoke out Jesse's room. Theresa gets extremely pissed off at Jeffrey, who just continues laughing throughout the video. Even Psycho Dad thinks the prank is a bit overboard. (Psycho Brother Smokes Out Stream)
- Later, Jesse and Theresa both decide they need to get away for the weekend, with Theresa going camping and Jesse visiting his girlfriend. At this time, it is revealed Jeffrey got off scot-free, proving that Psycho Dad does indeed play favorites. Jesse also leaves Jeffrey with a parting gift by removing all of the keys from the latter's keyboard using a GameStop card, in retaliation for the smoking of his room during the live stream.
- Jesse packs up and leaves for his girlfriend's; during the video, the two share their first onscreen kiss (they had previously discussed doing this during the welcome-back stream if they got enough viewers, but it never happened due to the DDoS and swatting).
- Jesse and his girlfriend do the whipped cream challenge. The same day, Jeffrey posts his long-awaited Q&A video.
- The next day, Jesse and his girlfriend do the Make-Up Challenge, and later that day, hold a Juggie Pow-wow regarding break-ups.
- Jesse returns home, but makes a trip to GameStop shortly thereafter (the details of which are not disclosed).
- The next day, Jesse announces he has paid off his student debt, and later, announces a PS4 and Xbox One giveaway, thus revealing the purpose of his GameStop trip the night before.
- Jesse along with Corn sneak into his parents bedroom and steal the keys to the Backhoe, hinting something is going to happen. It's later reveal that they want to crush Jeffery's PS4 as payback for everything he's done to him.
- Jesse takes the Backhoe out but finds he has trouble with controlling it. Psycho Dad catches him and kicks him off of it.
- Jesse goes over to Larry's house to talk for the first time since the North Carolina trip. Jesse admits to wanting to take and destroy Jeffery Jr's PS4 as payback for all the stuff he lost because of him, but wanted to talk to Larry about it before. Larry suggests he do it to finally stand up to Jeffery for all the shit he put on him through out the years, and personally for Jeffery destroying his Larry's Lounge sign (it is also revealed that fans made their own signs and sent them to him). Larry at this point, doesn't care about Jeffery Jr anymore since he has lost all respect for him. The two the discuss what they should do.
- Jesse, Larry, and Corn begin "Operation Orange Crush". Jesse goes to Jeffery's room and steals his PS4. Larry brings his truck over, and ties up the PS4 while bringing some weapons to deal more damage.
- With Corn recording, Jesse and Larry begin the plan. Corn shows Jeffery the PS4 under the truck, and he heads outside. Under threat by Jesse, him and Larry tell him that this is for all the things he either destroyed or got Psycho Dad to destroy in the past. Jesse runs over the PS4, much to Jeffrey's anger, and they proceed to smash it some more with the tools Larry brought over. Jeffery tries to retaliate with his paintball gun, but it gets jammed and they along with Corn drive off with the PS4 on tow dragged across the road. They then proceed to damage it some more, satisfied and victorious that they finally got Jeffery. Jesse spends the night at Larry's out of fear of reprisal from Jeffrey, and possibly Psycho Dad. (Psycho Kid Crushes PS4)
- A furious Jeffery finds the two PS4's and Xbox One for the giveaway and steals them from his room. He then curses against Jesse, Larry, and Corn for what they'd done.
- The next day, Jesse and Larry arrive back at the Ridgway Residence to install a deadbolt on Jesse's door to guard against Jeffrey. When they arrive, Jeffrey runs to lock down the stolen consoles, but willingly surrenders them when he learns they were for the giveaway. He is also told that they stole his Batman statue, but they didn't destroy it and tell him its location, before proceeding to install the deadbolt.
- Later that day, Jeffrey issues an apology for stealing the consoles, not knowing their purpose, and reveals that the BigBrudda channel has reached 500,000 subscribers. He also says he'll do a couple of giveaways, and has something special planned to celebrate 500,000 subscribers.
- One day, Jeffrey goes into Jesse's room to talk to Jesse about the console theft. After that, Jeffrey leaves the room and unknowingly to Jesse, locks the door on the outside. So Jesse now has to go out the window to go to other rooms.
- Jeff Sr. soon discovers this and questions Jesse about it. Jesse says that Jeffrey is possibly at the right intoxication level to be blamed on. Jesse proceeds to lie to Jeff Sr. by saying that Jeffrey was the one that installed the deadbolt. Jeff Sr. charges into Jeffrey's gaming area and throws his PS4 controller (he got a new one) on the ground. After arguing about lying and Uncle Larry, they decide to get rid of the deadbolt.
- Days later, Jesse asks Jeff Sr. to do a Q&A for the Juggies. The session goes well until Jeff Sr. is asked his thoughts on being labeled a psycho, leading to him leaving the session in a huff. (Psycho Dad Answers Questions).
- After the disastrous aftermath of Psycho Dad Answers Questions, Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. forgives Jesse for embarrassing him on YouTube, and the former spends the day golfing with his friends and his son.
- Jesse and Uncle Larry install a key-lock to keep Jeffrey Jr. from pranking him. Larry then gets kicked out of the house.

- Jesse moves back in to Uncle Larry's RV.

- Jeffrey comes to Uncle Larry's to give Larry his side of the story. Jesse thinks Jeffrey is trying to turn Larry against him, which starts an argument between Jesse and Larry, which they eventually talk out, in which Larry reveals he is firmly on Jesse's side, does not trust Jeffrey, and plans to talk to Theresa.
- The next day, Jesse and Tom return to the Ridgway Residence. While Tom retrieves Jesse's possessions, Jesse leaves a parting gift in the form of repeating Jeffrey's plastic wrap prank, only this time doing it to the latter's car. It is then revealed that Jesse got a Golden Play Button (Angry Grandpa also recently got a Golden Play Button).
- Jesse gets "kicked out" at Uncle Larry's (Larry actually never did so) after the events of plastic wrapping Jeffery Jr.'s car, effectively making him homeless for a short period of time.

- Larry posts a video issuing a message to Jesse in which he expresses great regret over the previous day's events, apologizes, and invites Jesse back, stating that at no point in the "THROWN OUT OF LARRY'S" video that the words "get out".

This sends Jesse over the edge, and he snaps and decks Jeffrey, only to lose the advantage as Jeffrey pins him. Corn drops the camera to get Jeffrey off of Jesse, but Corn finds himself being beaten up now. After a four-minute scuffle, Jesse is forced to stop Jeffrey, so he finds an empty beer bottle left behind by Larry and smashes it over Jeffrey's head, knocking him unconscious. (Psycho Brother Stomps Glasses)
- Following the fight, Jesse and Corn move the unconscious Jeffrey into a small compound and lock him up. When he comes to, he tries to escape, but is forced to stop when Jesse threatens to take a rock to Jeffrey's Play Button.

But even when Jeffrey got released, he begins to feel depressed for the past couple of weeks which causes their mom to get worried and suspicious.

(Psycho Mom Divorces Husband)
- On Thanksgiving, Jesse looks over the shattered remains of his room. Among the items destroyed include multiple gifts from fanmail, a coffee table, the TV, and a lamp that was destroyed when Psycho Dad shoved him into the wall. Later, at dinner, Psycho Dad gets angry when Jesse films his parents.
- Later in the night on Thanksgiving, Jesse and Jeffrey go to Larry's house against Psycho Dad's wishes, where they discover Theresa has been taking shelter. She reveals that she will not return to the Ridgway Residence. It is also shown that Jesse and Tom are back on good terms, as they play Smash Bros. once more.
- On Black Friday, Jesse heads back to Larry's to help decorate for Christmas.

He then destroys Theresa's computer monitor and puts her PC tower through the wood splitter, potentially destroying much data related to her workplace, taxes, and more, again for no apparent reason, though it is theorized that Psycho Dad is trying to destroy Theresa's life as revenge for leaving him. Throughout the video, Psycho Dad acts completely hypocritical, blaming Jesse for the computer's destruction. Jesse, too, acts hypocritical; while he and Corn are filming, he yells at Jeffrey to stop filming, but the latter refuses, and makes his first post to the BigBrudda channel in over a month. (Psycho Dad Splits Computer)
- Jesse and Corn look over the mangled remains of Theresa's computer, and later in the day, begin disassembling it with Larry and Tom in an attempt to recover the hard drive.

- The day after, Jesse goes to visit Uncle Larry and goes by his bike since his dad stripped him of almost all possessions including his Pink Car.

Jesse confronts him about this, and ends up smashing Demma on the wall, therefore "killing" him. But Damien ended up “fusing” with Jesse and made him go through with the escape plan.
- That night, off camera, Jesse tried opening the safe, but his Dad catches him in the act. In the next video, he sates he will no longer be trying to open the safe, and most likely, no longer be making videos. He then takes out the NES he found, and brings it upstairs and writes a note for his Dad to see.
- Jesse had made some calls to Dr. Nelson and Jeffrey trying to make amends. He then calls Corn to tell him about his plan to get out of the house and ask him to bring a bag, containing something (supposedly a sandwich), over to him as quick as he can. (I'm a psychopath.)
- Corn sneaks back to Jesse’s house so that the two can catch up on what they’ve been doing for the past week and for him to give Jesse the bag. Corn tried to persuade Jesse not to go through with the escape plan because it can mean he may never see him, their friends, and their families ever again and the fact that Jeff Sr. can afford a vacation trip and a gate makes it unlikely for Jesse’s money to still be in the safe. But his efforts are in vain due to Jesse keep on wanting to believe that the money is still in there and to prove to his dad that he is a man. The two best friends say their final goodbyes with Jesse telling the Juggies that the next time they see him, he’ll be in a better place.(MOMENT OF PEACE & SILENCE)

After arguing for about 5 minutes, Jeff Sr. tells Jesse that the video games caused him to become how he is, causing Jesse to fully snap and fatally shoot Jeff Sr. with the revolver and reclaim his money. Jeffrey coldly warns Jesse that he gets only five minutes to get out or he will call the police to show up and arrest him. But to Jesse's horror and anger, there is only two bundles of money due to the rest that was spent by his dad. (Psycho Kid Kills Father)
- With the remaining money, Jesse escapes to Switzerland and finds freedom at last, but later attempts suicide by hanging himself for all the actions he had committed towards the whole family, although he chooses not to. He says that he will no longer be doing YouTube videos while the same time get an actual job and a home deep in the mountains so that no one would be able to find him. He tearfully thanks everyone for all that they done for him and plead to them not to follow in his footsteps. But at the end of the video, it is later revealed that all the Psycho videos and vlogs were all staged up. (Psycho Kid Flees Country)
- An epilogue series, C-R-I-S-I-S was made, showing up to a minute's worth of various clips about collecting Scrabble letters to reveal a hidden, encrypted message. This series took place in Switzerland, serving as an epilogue to the Psycho Series, as Jesse Ridgway stayed in character as his Psycho Series counterpart. The encryption was revealed to spell out "AT VIDCON RIGHT NOW", signifying that A) the Psycho Series was fake, B) that he was promoting his works at the 2016 VidCon convention and C) that C-R-I-S-I-S was premade during a vacation in Switzerland.
- As the series is revealed to be fake, Jesse begins reflecting his thoughts on the series. He defines it as "the greatest pseudo-reality interactive storytelling experience of (our) generation".
- The moral of the story is if you love something, you should follow it just as long as it’s not illegal or dangerous in any way. And you also need to be sure to show your gratitude and love towards your family and friends for helping you and don’t do something that could physically and/or emotionally hurt them.

However, Jesse Ridgway, the main character, was criticized for his behavior and unlikable character traits but otherwise felt sorry for him and his misfortunate life.
