Now, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up with their former classmate, the high school football coach, if they want to survive the night.

In this episode of Godfire, the team from Firewall is stranded on Mars in the aftermath of their incredible fuck-up at Tether, and in their newly-found free time, each Sentinel goes on a personal mission. Gavin receives a message from a notorious drug dealer and former associate of his who needs a favor, and is willing to give him the doctor who sold Dalton to the Night Cartel if he does it. After his encounter with Gray Xu in Olympus, Dalton must deal with his rising profile as the space mafia’s higher-ups grow ever more eager to capture him. Doc Skeelaxx is contacted by a former Gatecrasher who has brought back an illegal specimen through one of the Pandora Gates, and wishes to have it examined by a professional with dubious morals. Lucas must hunt down and neutralize a Direct Action weapons designer who plans to defect to Gorgon with the blueprints of his latest invention. Elis faces her toughest hacking challenge yet when an anarchist cell brings a disembodied AI construct to her and asks her to jailbreak a robotic body in which to sleeve it. Damien finds his past misdeeds come back to haunt him when a man who he fork-napped and sold into slavery tries to blackmail him so that he can get his old life back. Finally, Amir, the only Sentinel to survive the nuclear explosion on Tether (because he wasn’t there), has to take the train from Olympus to Elysium–what could possibly go wrong?

There it is, the old Sanderson place! That’s where it all happened. That’s where Dr. Sanderson kidnapped all those kids back in the ’80s. They say he went crazy after his wife and son died. Closed down his practice and started collecting antique dental instruments. Drills. Burs. Excavators. Retractors. By the time it happened, they say his collection filled an entire room in his basement.

Nobody knows why he did it. Maybe he was overly eager to play with his toys, or maybe he just wanted to hurt people. Either way, one Halloween night, he lured unsuspecting trick-or-treaters into his house, and then…he operated on them. Performed root canals, wired them up with braces, you name it. All without Novocaine. None of the neighbors heard the screams.

It went on for hours.

A secret service agent, a muckraking web journalist and a White House aide team up with a US Senator to investigate a secret military project that has been soaking up money for the past four decades. No one knows exactly what’s going on at the secret island installation in the Pacific where the program is supposedly based, and even the cover story that it’s a toxic waste disposal site can’t justify the expenditure of keeping the program active. In order to find answers, our Investigators will travel from the sea coast of Maine to the installation itself, where they’ll discover a horrifying secret that the program’s commander will go to extreme lengths to cover up.
