SECOND PLACE FRINGE WINNER
EPISODE ONE (6/12/16)
SUMMARY: Teenage Brenda, who recently had a back brace
taken off, finds herself unable to commit to her boyfriend David - how can she love someone fully if she doesn't
know who she really is? Brenda doesn't know who her father is,
and demands her mother finally tell her, but all her mother will
say is that her father is a bad man. Brenda then goes to see a
chiropractor for the first time - and his name is Dr. Badman.

EPISODE TWO (6/18/16)
SUMMARY: Brenda and Dr. Badman find common ground in
their common attraction - and that they've both pledged celibacy
until marriage - in Dr. Badman's case, until his SECOND
marriage. Dr. Badman admits that in his youth, he
slept with many, many women; he was a bad man then, but he's a
good guy now. After failing yet again to get her mother to tell
her who her father is, she abruptly breaks up with David. He doesn't take it well - and the voices in his head
tell him to kill her.
EPISODE THREE (6/20/16)
SUMMARY: Sparks fly between Brenda and Dr. Badman, and
they ache to get married so they can consummate their love - and
Dr. Badman says he hasn't felt like this about anybody since his
first wife. They plan to elope; Brenda tries to tell her mother,
but she's busy doing businesswoman things for the business she
does as a businesswoman, so she runs off to meet her love, and
they ride off together on his motorcycle to get married. When
her mother notices she's gone, she thinks she's been kidnapped.
EPISODE FOUR (6/25/16)
SUMMARY: Brenda's mother has caught up with her and is
now helping her prepare for her wedding day despite the fact
that she's never yet met or laid eyes on her daughter's fiancée.
The ceremony begins - and David, wielding a knife, rushes in.
Brenda's mother doesn't recognize Dr. Badman... but she DOES
recognize David, who, it turns out, is her former lover... and
Brenda's true father. In a flashback to the 90s, we see David
become unhinged as Brenda's mother breaks up with him, and he
swears his revenge. In the present, David decides to put the
knife away, because he's had his revenge - he's seduced his
former love's daughter... his own daughter. And worse yet...
Brenda's pregnant with his child. Brenda's going to have a
daughter... and a sister.
