So, everything changed at the end of last season. Audrey is now the evil Mara, Jennifer and Duke are not feeling so good and William has been dropped in a dimension with an over-active smoke machine.
So with all that happening we need to see Gloria. Hey I normally love Gloria, she’s awesome, but really with all that’s happening do I need to see her and her now trouble-less baby? Vicki’s (she who can make her pictures real) also there to remind us that the Troubles are staying for extra long time this time round rather than their usual break.
Then an earthquake hits – and a ring of light explodes out from the lighthouse (where Audrey and the gang are) before the lighthouse collapses into the sea.
Duke and Dwight end up on shore outside of Haven – and Duke is no longer bleeding from the eyes (which is probably a good sign).
The Teagues are bickering in the middle of the woods, Dave is badly injured (he was shot)
Nathan finds Audrey and she promptly cuffs him and steals his gun because he’s completely forgotten that she’s now evil Mara. Evil Mara has really not enjoyed the last 500 years of reincarnated do-gooders (all of which she remembers) and needs Jennifer (to open the door and free William) and then she can go on creating evil Troubles for nefarious but unexplained purposes. She clonks Nathan unconscious which, let’s be honest, we’ve all wanted to do occasionally.
Duke finds and frees Nathan and now we have two teams hunting Jennifer. When they realise that the lighthouse is destroyed (much to some administrator’s distress) that means the doorway to Dry Ice World is under the sea – so now what will Mara done? Nathan and Duke bicker so it’s time to interrupt them with a Trouble – administrator Bill gets his eyes sewn up. Nasty.
They decide it’s a new Trouble and Nathan and Dwight talk about what to do – Nathan is worried about Dwight going after Mara and Mara getting hurt because she’s till Audrey, precious. Dwight is less sure. Duke’s obsessive asking everyone about Jennifer reveals Mara also asked where she was even after finding the lighthouse exploding – suggesting there’s more than one door to Dry Ice World.
They need info. It’s time for the Teagues to be obstructive and vague again! Alas, Dave is unconscious in hospital and Vince knows little and Cabot’s journal with its own ambiguous hints is missing (probably hidden by Dave). While in the hospital, a member of the Guard (freaky Trouble people with rather extreme attitudes) warns Dwight everyone’s getting antsy especially since Vince (the head of the Guard) isn’t talking. Dwight’s also having to deal with the new sewing Trouble while Duke obsessed with Jennifer and Nathan obsesses over Mara. Which now includes a guy whose eyes and mouth were sewn up while he was driving (and caused him to crash).
