Episode One (12/1/18)

Summary: Jacob Marley begins his storied haunting of Ebeneezer Scrooge... and scares him so badly that Scrooge has a heart attack. As the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future arrive, they're all annoyed at Marley for blowing his one job - to scare the person they were trying to save... not to kill him. Also, Ray, the spirit of Christmas Present, has history (so to speak) (and literally) with Mary, the spirit of Christmas Past, but she ignores his entreaties to start their romance anew - she prefers to live in the past. As they all argue and panic, Bob Cratchit, who can see none of them, arrives with a knife, which he plunges into Scrooge's heart, not knowing he's already dead. As he shouts imprecations at his former employer, his wife Barb arrives, and she seems horrified at first - but she's actually turned on, and the two begin passionately making out on top of Scrooge's corpse. As the spirit bemoan how weird everything is getting, Santa arrives and, after a quick look around, demands to know what the hell is going on.

Episode Two (12/8/18)

Summary: It turns out that Santa also has a history with Christmas Past (which, when you put it like that, is not at all surprising). But for now, he's gotta run, as Mrs. Claus is on the warpath. As things continue to degerate into chaos, Tiny Tim rushes in with a knife - and becomes the second member of the Cratchit family to attack the already-dead Scrooge with murderous intent.
