Marvin (Eric Johnson), a trucker who keeps his own counsel.


New waitress Kris (Carrie Wiita), who is determined to
get that spoon as clean as it can possibly be.


Seasoned waitress Red (Franci Montgomery), who advises
Kris on pie protocol, and janitor Ramiro (Jaime Robledo),
who may be - as may we all be - a helpless pawn of...


...The Stranger (Chris Gyre), who harbors
dark secrets... and darker powers.

Reality shift: The Stranger holds a gun to Coleman's head, and
Kris seems to have something to do with the spooky goings-on.

Starla wants Gunner to take her away from here,
but Gunner... may not be her best option.


Gunner and Carly (Fleur Phillips) were an item, but now

Marvin thinks it was all a dream.


Phone call for Ramiro.


The Red Tie Man (David LM McIntyre) demands coffee.


Some puppyfucker stole Dougal's stamp book.
He is righteously pissed off.


As the Red Tie Man unspools an infinite tie, both Kris and Gunner -
both with another voice speaking through them - threaten
to show Coleman the true nature of the Darkness.


Reality - such as it is - snaps back into focus..
and Coleman is unconscious on the floor.

EPISODE SIX (2/23/08)


The mysterious Flores (C.M. Gonzalez) seeks audience with
Ramiro - and gifts him with an equally mysterious vial.

EPISODE SEVEN (3/1/08)


The Past: After a night with Carly, Marvin warns her against getting involved with Gunner.

mighty wind is keeping him in place.


Ill-tempered Josie (Kathi Copeland) stops in for some pie.


Starla's pimp Horace (Philip Newby) stops
by to clarify that nobody touches his girls.


Dougal can't take it any more - he has to find out what's

...as soon as it's broken, Marvin can move again.
And he leaves, destination unknown.

EPISODE TEN (4/12/08)


The Red Tie Man has mysteriously appeared in Marvin's truck.
He warns Marvin, "You will not find her.  You will not find... all of her."


After Marvin throws him out, he produces a human
heart - Carly's? - and brays.  Like a goat.

Loann and Starla.


Josie has a warning for Starla, but she won't heed it.
"If it rains fire, I'll draw a bath and get underwater."

her and drags her off, telling her that if she screams, people will simply think... they're back together.

while Coleman wonders what to do now that he's dead.


It's happening.  Apocalypse is coming.  This is what it's all been leading up to.


Apocalypse.
