As Vader, Seth is mortally wounded while killing Palpatine, and asks Green to remove his helmet so he can look at him with his own eyes.

In the next section, Peter slips and hits his head on a kitchen sink, after discovering Mike Henry dead. Finally Quagmire dies when he slips on some water, and a falling piece of wood impaled him in the eye, with these deaths being implied to have been committed by an evil bar of soap.
