11:45 a.m. PDT Is it over yet? That is the big question on the minds of many voters (and nonvoters) this campaign season. Most of them have had enough fearmongering, vitriol and deceit to last a a long time.

Yes, the 2016 presidential race is nearing the finish line. But before we bid farewell to the best political theater corporate money can buy, the Commission on Presidential Debates has graced us with one last dog-and-pony show of duopoly to control the message and keep the whole story from the American people.

Will Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump stick to the script in the final debate? We’ll find out starting at 6 p.m. PDT when the two candidates take the stage at the Thomas and Mack Center on the UNLV campus in Las Vegas.

Sin City is an appropriate venue for the final showdown. History may prove that this marathon to determine the chief executive officer of least evil has had its fair share of sins—by omission and commission. And while Vegas bookmakers cannot accept bets on the debate (it’s too subjective), there’s no reason you can’t play a plutocrat with your friends and place some prop bets with an offshore gambling operation.

To be prepared, here’s how the first three presidential debates went.

Round 1: Hillary Clinton lets Trump be Trump.

Round 2 (vice presidential debate): Tim Kaine forces Mike Pence to defend the king of the deplorables in the “Thrilla in Vanilla.”

Round 3: The Donald stalks The Hillary and declares himself The Winner.

Round 4 will be moderated by Chris Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday.”

Wallace has a history with Clinton.

And Trump.

The scheduled topics of discussion are immigration, entitlements/debt, the Supreme Court, the economy, foreign policy and each candidate’s fitness to serve as president.

In other words, expect a whole lot of this.

Buckle up.
