Stanley's hunt for the only smurf!
                                    Awesome plot twist (in my mind). 
                                    BRAVO! !

I was trying to guess the  twist, but failed lol. If I had written this, I would have put a blatent clue and put gus's blue mark right in the middle of his forehead ;)
                                    
                                    I guess I'm 3 years too late with this idea ;)
