Episode 27: Agendas Part V

Following the disturbing realization that the CPRS is onto the same pattern of unnatural events as they are, our operatives rush to the Pleasant Hill Cemetery in an attempt to divert disaster.

***END TRANSMISSION***

Using all their craft as both spies and sorcerers, Koji and Pierce sneak into the Chester Mental Health Center in the dead of night, in search of evidence of Howarth's true agenda.

At the Lake, Kiera forms a powerful bond that not only bolsters her powers as a practitioner of witchcraft, but elevates her very nature to something perhaps more than human.

But to maintain cover, Mitch has no choice but to track and apprehend Pierce...

***END TRANSMISSION***

The opportunity arises for Pierce to undermine the magickal working that Koji uses to restrain and erode Darren Feldman's power as the two of them prepare for their delicate -- and mystically complex -- infiltration of the Chester Mental Health Center. While they hope to glean some of Doctor Howarth's secrets and learn more of his organization, with Pierce ironically unaware that he's voluntarily forgotten much of what they might discover.

Meanwhile, Mitch and Kiera make contact with Doctor Howarth, attempting to establish common ground and earn his trust, learning of a specialized task that, should they risk it, would go a long way to proving their worth.

Mitch visits his parents after an absence of 9 years, and discovers a piece of himself he never knew he left behind. The torn threads of a destiny lost yearn to be woven into something new.

Koji Miyazaki resumes Pierce's training in the arcane arts as Kiera and Mitch are given a dangerous mission by Tiresias.

***END TRANSMISSION***

In the depths of the Reflecting Pool, our operatives are shown both what they need to see, and their fears made manifest. As they traverse their personal hells, the operatives are made aware of some of the Lake's mysterious workings, and variously come to meet its custodian, the Witch once known as Hailee Pennington.

With sorrow, with heroism, and with cowardice, the operatives pass through the trials of the Lake, and surface in the world, wiser and more worn.

Episode 19: Reflections Part IV

The cell begins its investigation of Chester, Illinois. Mitch finds the town both familiar and strange, suspecting that perhaps he himself is what has changed... and not for the better.

Their search for any information concerning Hailee Pennington yields rumors of an insufferable-sounding group of would-be ghost hunters, and they get in contact with the local sheriff, who demonstrates that he may become a problem for the cell if they aren't careful.

Atop a lonely mountain, Pierce meets his new mentor, and is subjected to difficult questions and a reality-defying test of will and focus. Back at base, Ashleigh tells Kiera about some unsettling things happening at home with Ellie, and Mitch copes with the physical and emotional wounds caused by his training.
