Season 6, Episode 6
June 9, 2012
iBattle Chip is the sixth episode of Season 6 of iCarly. It marks the 100th episode of iCarly (counting 1 hour specials as two episodes and movies as three). However if all the movie episodes were merged into individual episodes this would be the 87th episode of the series.
It premiered to 2.362 million viewers which is currently the series' lowest audience of a premiere to date.
After Chuck steals Spencer's clothes, Spencer calls the cops on him and Chuck gets sent to military school. However, this causes Chuck's younger brother Chip to hate Spencer and terrorize him more than Chuck did.
Meanwhile, Gibby buys a Galaxy Wars toy phaser and becomes depressed when Carly accidentally breaks it while Sam was beating up a bully. Freddie fixes it, but also modifies it into an actually working heat laser gun.
During an iCarly webcast, Chip plays loud music, making it impossible for them to continue. Downstairs, they find Spencer, who has been tied up by Chip.
