EPISODE ONE (2/14/15)

SUMMARY:  The ghost of the recently dead Mrs. Ethel Carstairs can't stop screaming, much to the consternation of Fielder and David, undead followers of Sally, who wants to conquer and rule the living.  The dead lady leads them to a sťance in progress, as Mr. Carstairs is trying to contact his Ethel via the dubious help of bogus medium Madame Robocaller.  However, Sally and her minions manage to take over Madame Robocaller's body and begin an actual sťance.  Meanwhile, another undead faction who also want to rule the living, lead by Madame Buzzard, also begin a mystical ritual, which summons spirits Joseph and Karen.  Back at the other sťance, Sally instigates a ritual called "Echo," which echoes their words via repetition from the undead to the living, who are unnerved to find themselves suddenly saying the word "Echo."  But it's not enough to solidify the contact; they need a word from Ethel - who says a word that upon hearing, Mr. Carstairs knows he's made contact with his late wife.

Mr. Carstairs (Corey Klemow), Madame Robocaller (John Wuchte) and Cadwaller (Scot Shamblin) at a sham of a sťance.
