Episode 41: The Tower Inverted Part I

Mitch tries to adjust to life without Kiera or Pierce, immersing himself in work at the Chicago Facility. However, a sudden request from Tiresias provides a wider perspective on Mitch's situation, with implications both wonderful and horrifying.

Pierce, meanwhile, is in convalescence, abed at a secret ward of the Chester Mental Health center. A reunion with an old friend prompts Pierce to search for answers, and perhaps more, in a place even he must struggle to reach.

Later, an unprecedented catastrophe descends on ORPHEUS.

With the fabric of the future itself at risk, everything rests on the shoulders of the misfit group that assembled at Myron Sinclair's party what seems like ages ago. Victory and loss come crashing down as the group runs truly out of time.

Episode 36: Out of Time Part I

In the Fall of 1893, on the periphery of London's respectable society, a party is being thrown for the fringes of the occult community. Spiritualists, astrologers, alchemists, and assorted n'er-do-wells are gathering at the estate of Marlon Sinclair for both séance and socialization.

Among the guests is Freya Benton, a world traveler of Egyptian extraction who's seen both the highs and lows of life on two continents, and Granville Moore, a retired soldier with a very peculiar instrument case in tow.

The evening's festivities get well and truly out of hand, as a Hermetic text written by someone named "Henry Colfax" is used for a bit of harmless fun... and brings forth something none could have imagined.
