In addition to the jokes that involved the main story there were other gems that were thrown in for good measure. I don't know if it was just me but when Cartman was sitting in the classroom with Token and Nichole, Garrison explaining Game of Thrones was one of the funniest moments in South Park for me. It was one of the few moments that I wished Cartman would be quiet so that I could hear what Garrison was saying, but having it in the background made it that much better.
Once Cartman confronted Nichole to tell her that Kyle wouldn't be interested in her because they were gay for each other was another great bit. In all of South Park Cartman always tried to make other people seem gay, so watching him turn it on himself was hilarious. It made it even better how nonchalant he was about it and the jokes just flowed out. While it would normally seem that Cartman was doing it just to screw Kyle over the fact that he just wanted Nichole and Token together made it funnier.
Everything going further into the episode from Cartman's "Cupid Me," locking Token and Nichole in the locker room and Cartman singing "I Swear" all were unbelievable bits that held their own weight and kept you laughing. There were plenty more as well but you'll have to watch the episode for yourself to see all of them. Rounding out the episode at the Nuggets game and singing to Kyle with Brad Paisley was a great final touch.
With this being the midseason finale this was the way to close it out. One of the funniest episodes I've seen in a while and I'm glad that South Park still has the flair and comedy when they put their minds to it. At some points you might think that Matt and Trey have lost it but they clearly still have it.
TL;DR "Cartman Finds Love" was one of the best episodes of the season with hilarious bits and crude humor all around.
