Both the Game Grumps and Derek are stuck doing nothing and can't be interacted with.
When I try to talk to then it says that the Grumps are doing their thing (Grumps) or Derek's attention is on something else (Derek).

I haven't done anything special except save and load. It might have blocked when their event was on standby waiting for me to approach and I saved/loaded the game.

I don't really mind the Grumps being stuck but I need Derek.
Is there a way to reset Derek's AI or tell him to stop focusing on the grumps.

I've added an image to show their location and my output log.

This will be fixed in the next update. BGC that is intended to be chained/queued in sequence can break on save/load currently, which means when you load, you won't see the next BGC that contains an event that would have freed all three characters. Sorry about that. If you want, I can help you fix this with a console command, but that will disable any Achievements for your playthrough.
