Sure, Guybrush has awoken to find himself a prisoner on his own ship and been marooned on an island due to a Root Beer experiment gone wrong before, but this is a new one for him. Remember the surprise ending of the last episode, where LeChuck impales Guybrush with his sword, seemingly killing him? Well, it turns out that there are no surprises, and he's actually dead. The opening segment of the game actually has you helping his soul dig itself out of his grave in the Underworld. From here, it's up to Guybrush to find a way to A) return to his body and B) stop LeChuck for good. Along the way, he'll visit plenty of old friends (mostly dead ones) and interact with lots of funny new characters."
