Next Time: Episode 11
Began 10/22/16

EPISODE ONE (10/22/16)

SUMMARY: Sunny and naive young Clark Clarke arrives in the big city ready to start a business (C.P.A. and life coach) and make his fortune, but within moments of stepping off the bus, he meets a strange woman, Florence Mabel, who refers him to Miss Meredith Maxwell's Temp Agency for Unusual Employment - and, with accomplices, robs him of his luggage and wallet while he's not looking. With no choice if he wants food and shelter, he visits Miss Maxwell's establishment and asks if there are any jobs for him he can start on that day, and she sends him out on a job as a fish plucker - the only job she has for someone she knows nothing about. After he leaves, we learn that Florence is in cahoots with Miss Maxwell, and she brings Clark's luggage and wallet to her while secretary Debby tells someone on the phone that they've got another one for him...

EPISODE TWO (10/29/16)

SUMMARY: Clark is, unexpectedly, really enjoying his job as a fish plucker, unfazed by his strange boss, Milbank (aka Millie) - or by Junior, a giant mantis in a tweed outfit who is skulking about the factory; he's just happy he has a place to sleep and that Milbank feeds him well. Miss Maxwell stops by and Millie confirms that Clark is being fattened up nicely. Meanwhile, Clark's twin sister Clara arrives; she has a psychic link to Clark, though he doesn't have one to her, and she senses he's in danger. Florence attempts to rob her like she robbed Clark, but Clara is much sharper than Clark, and very much able to take care of herself; she fends off the robbery and forces Florence to take her to her younger (well, four minutes younger) brother. She is as surprised as Miss Maxwell to learn that Clark is in good spirits... and she instantly falls in love with Junior... who is apparently Miss Maxwell's son by a man she cannot bring herself to name.

SUMMARY: Milbank uses magic powers to put everyone to sleep except Miss Maxwell; he's angry at her because Clark has family... she was supposed to bring him somebody nobody was going to miss. When Clara awakens, she thinks her sighting of Junior was a dream. When Miss Maxwell learns of her psychic powers, she asks her to use them to help find someone; she tells Clara to go to her agency to apply for the job. Back at Miss Maxwell's office, Debbie, who was supposed to do the paperwork ensuring that Clark was alone in the world, is punished harshly - she's now comatose, seemingly lobotomized. Clara arrives, and it turns out she and Clark do have family... including an "Aunt Skeeter," so nicknamed because she resembles a mosquito. A family member who resembles an insect? Miss Maxwell is intrigued...

EPISODE FOUR (11/12/16)

SUMMARY: Miss Maxwell gives Clara a key, and wants her to use her psychic powers and the key to help track someone down. Milbank visits and tells her that Junior has vanished, and threatens to tear down the life he's given her - one a far cry away from when she was a cocktail waitress named Lorelei Lacewing, until the Lunar Eclipse Orgy of '44 changed everything. Meanwhile, Clara meets up with Clark - and when they both touch the key, they seem to become possessed, intoning in unison that the time is nigh to avenge their family and fulfill their destiny...

EPISODE FIVE (11/19/16)

SUMMARY: The trance the twins have gone into is broken when the key is taken from their hands by Samuel Sneed - mayor of their hometown of Blue Acre Ridge. Sneed reveals that the key has the power to close the cosmological rift that was opened during the Lunar Eclipse of '44. Back at the temp agency, Junior arrives in plain view, causing everyone to panic at the sight of him. Milbank freezes everyone but Junior, Miss Maxwell and Agnes, and Junior wordlessly attempts to communicate something to him - to no avail. Milbank unfreezes everyone, and their panic at Junior is interrupted by the arrival of Sneed, who knows about Miss Maxwell's past as Lorelei Lacewing. He reveals that reason everyone from Blue Acre Ridge says "Go, Goats!" all the time is because goats were brought in to save the city from a virulent kudzu crop growing out of control. The goats kept the kudzu in line... until the Lunar Eclipse of '44 - caused by Miss Maxwell - caused the goats to leave Blue Acre Ridge. Sneed needs to find the true owner of the key to close the cosmological rift, but Miss Maxwell stole the key and is not the true owner... and she says they are all doomed!

EPISODE SIX (1/21/17)

SUMMARY: Mayor Sneed tells the twins they were mind wiped, and no longer know the full story of what happened back in Blue Acre Ridge. As this information is imparted, Milbank and Miss Maxwell realize that Mayor Sneed looks oddly familiar, and it transpires that Mayor Sneed was at the Great Lunar Orgy of '44 though he tries to deny it. And though the world is imperiled, Miss Maxwell says it's impossible to get the key back to its original owner... because she ate him. But just as she makes this shocking pronouncement, the key's original owner shows up, very much alive! He's a handsome man with a scar across his face, and as he flips a coin, first Miss Maxwell and then everybody else faints dead away...

SUMMARY: Miss Maxwell is enraged when Clark and Clara decide to quit their temp jobs and return to Blue Acre Ridge, especially when she learns that Mayor Sneed may be the one who encouraged them to go home. "PINK SLIPS FOR EVERYONE!" she declares... and exercises a mighty power that spells doom for those unfortunate enough to be standing too close to her. One of the office girls dies, as does Agnes Smith - uttering "Chrysanthemum" as a mysterious final word. Later, when Clark and Clara return to their parents' home in Blue Acre Ridge, they are confronted with Miss Maxwell, Junior, and Junior's Dad. Have Clark and Clara really been brain wiped? Have Miss Maxwell and her old lover from the lunar eclipse been their parents all along!?

SUMMARY: Clark and Clara flee to Mayor Sneed's home... but find Junior there instead. Befuddled and panicked, they decide their only hope to figure out what's going on is to return to New Metro City... where Miss Maxwell and Junior are still at the temp agency, somehow in two places at the same time. Milbank freezes them in place with his clicker to stop their questions... just as Detective Cylas arrives, investigating the disappearance of Agnes Smith. She's suspicious of everyone, as well she might be. Milbank freezes everyone but Junior... and tells him it's time they had a little talk.

EPISODE NINE (2/11/17)

SUMMARY: As Florence Mabel gets dispensation to "address" the problem of Detective Cylas, Miss Maxwell confronts Clark and Clara's questions about her appearance in Blue Acre Ridge with a flat denial. Meanwhile, Detective Cylas - whose father had also been a detective, and was killed by a swarm of cicadas - checks out the storage shed in the backyard of Helen Hamer - one of Miss Maxwell's employees who disappeared - and inside finds a bound and gagged Mayor Sneed, who splutters something about chrysanthemums, and that he's been bamboozled. And Milbank has taken Junior on a trip to meet Skeet, a mosquito-like woman last mentioned back in Episode 3...

Photos by Mandi Moss

EPISODE TEN (2/25/17)

SUMMARY: Milbank tells Skeet he has raised and sheltered Junior, and fears the outside world will not be kind to him. Skeet says that Junior must accept who he can become, and that the important thing is to be kind... and shames Milbank by telling him he must face his own way of seeing Junior before they can help with how others see him. Meanwhile, Detective Cylas continues her investigation, and is befuddled at the terrified reaction everyone who works for Miss Maxwell has to the word "chrysanthemum." Junior's father arrives, and the detective is inappropriately attracted to him. Miss Maxwell is forced to make the bizarre confession that Junior's father's scar was caused by her eating his face. When Miss Maxwell proves to have a temper, Detective Cylas, convinced she's the most likely suspect in the disappearances, asks Miss Maxwell to come with her - but Miss Maxwell, declaring she'll never be taken alive, vanishes in a sudden crash of lightning.
