A simulation is shown with a comment pinged and the SWAT team is shown busting into the troll’s house who left said comment. The CEO of the website is now being interviewed and says that a troll hides behind a closed layer on the internet and that Trolltrace.com will break that layer. He says “Komme oot, troll. Komme oot und die”. Dick says that the last part translates to “Come out, troll. Come out and die”. When Gerald says he is dead, Dick tells him that there is still hope.

AV Club gave "Wieners Out" a "A-" rating saying: "Before South Park started playing around with a more serialized format, each episode was somewhat self-contained, its ending capped with a final statement. Even if that statement was stubbornly about not making a statement at all, there was a sense of there being some kind of lesson. The image of Stan or Kyle stepping front and center to deliver some overwrought, beyond-their-years moralizing became another one of the series’ many running jokes. Nowadays though, the show’s message is constantly morphing, never fully crystallizing until the very end of the season. And even then, it’s not always clear-cut. Every now and then, this results in narrative dragging or flat-out incoherence in some of the episodes leading up to the finale. But other times, the constant mutation tickles the brain, forcing you to mull over just what Parker and Stone are getting at."
IGN gave "Wieners Out" a "8.4" rating saying: "South Park still seems to be finding its voice in Season 20. "Wieners Out" made some crucial steps as it narrowed the focus to two main storylines and combined a gleefully inappropriate protest movement with a look at Gerald's rapidly deteriorating life. This season's critique of social media culture feels more relevant every week, but there remains a uniformity to every episode that's a little troubling."
