The penultimate episode of Miracle day and the team deals with the devil and travels to the ends of the earth.

It has been two months since the last episode. The world is in a depression. A car smashes into a pharmacy. It is Gwen Cooper. She gets out and robs the store of a lot of drugs. She returns home and is being watched. She goes into the house with pizza boxes. They assume she is just out for pizza. Gwen has the drugs in the pizza boxes and evidently she and Rhys are the neighborhood drug dealers. They take medicine down in the basement to her father, who they are hiding.

REVIEWERS NEEDED FOR SEVERAL NEW SHOWS (UPDATED)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Torchwood started its long-delayed 4th season last week, Warehouse 13 returned for its 3rd season last night, and "Alphas" premiered. As it happens, none of our people have access to "Stars," so we don't have a way to review Torchwood, though we really want to. W-13 we kinda' don't give a crap about, and have no plans to review unless someone wants to step up. Probably we *should* cover Alphas at least for a little bit, but we're suffering a manpower shortage at present, and probably won't be able to do so.
