EPISODE ONE (2/8/14)
SUMMARY: When Henry returns home from college to
visit his parents, he is shocked to find that Barry, the monster
under his bed from his childhood, is still there, and very real.
Barry and Henry had been pals - Barry wasn't a very good monster
and preferred to befriend his young charge. For breaking
the rules, he's been stuck in Henry's room ever since instead of
moving on to a new child. Still, adults aren't supposed to
be able to see Barry... unless they're bad people. As
Henry insists he's not a bad person, a terrifying creature comes
to take him away into the Darkness, but Barry fights him off.
Still, there's no avoiding destiny. Barry takes a
terrified and confused Henry's hand as they are unavoidably
spirited off into the Darkness.
SUMMARY: Upon arrival in the Darkness, Henry is
again attacked by the creature, but is saved by Barry's old
monster friends Calugula, Mal and Fred. Barry's been
banished ever since he made friends with Henry as a child
instead of scaring him, and is now considered a hero by his old
peers. He showed them that in all evil, there is a little
good... but conversely, in all good, there is a little evil.
They can't believe Barry bought a human with him. They
think he must be a bad person - only bad people ever seen the
Darkness, and then they're taken to the Tearhouse, where their
insides are ripped out to turn them into monsters. Henry
still denies being a bad person... though in private, he admits
that as a soldier, he did terrible things. The monsters
want to make the Darkness a better place... but it's an uphill
battle, and the terrible Ivan has other ideas.
