R/O Institute Offer Budding Storytellers a Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity


As Christmas is drawing closer, R/O Institute – Belgium's premier international incubator for new storytelling talent – is busy reviewing dozens of pitches sent in by authors, artists, designers and developers hailing from all over the world. In February, 2018, the institute will reveal which 10 pitches have been chosen and invite the winning individuals or teams to come over for 5 months in order to develop their cross-media projects under the guidance of critically-acclaimed professional coaches. While still in the review process, R/O Institute is accepting pitches which can be submitted at http://www.ro.institute as well as be found on Instagram and other social media through ‘roinstitute'.

Publishing in a Digital Age
 
A New Age of Storytelling

It was predicted by futurists and SF writers and now we're seeing it in films, sharing the news online and hearing about it in podcasts: a new age of storytelling has dawned! More and more stories are being told through different media, with storylines interconnecting between TV series, theatrical features, shows, novels, comics, games and even newer, immersive experiences.

Still, the number of opportunities now available can be staggering and mastering every single skill needed to create a ready-to-publish project is nigh impossible. Of course, this can keep many talented visionaries from developing new ideas or even trying to pursue their dreams altogether. On top of that, the number of tasks lying ahead can seem daunting: finding great team members; learning how to pitch or sell an IP; attracting producers, investors and distributors; planning every stage of the project; and all other steps that need to be taken in order to nurse a product until its launch date.
 
That's where R/O Institute comes in.

What We Do
 
Every year, we invite 10 individuals or teams who've impressed us with their pitches to come over to our institute, where we help them develop 5 different skillsets, supported by 25 international experts and coaches, as well as the R/O Institute staff itself. During the entire process, participants are given continuous feedback through a high-tech evaluation app that allows talents, experts and fellow participants to communicate with each other and watch the progress on their project.

In short, R/O Institute provides lodging and full support, ensuring that participants are able to focus on developing their projects, without needing to worry about numerous factors partly or wholly beyond their control.

When done, the institute's agents and staff continue to support the project for about 18 months, submitting it to partners and marketplaces all over the planet.

Marvel's Runaways S01E06 "Metamorphosis" Recap


Fifteen years ago, Jonah gave Geoffrey and Catherine the mansion with the secret room in the basement. All of the same adults are there, including Molly's still-alive parents. Leslie is already a leader and aware of the sacrifices just like Victor and Tina who have already been blackmailed into helping keeping everyone in line. All of the adults were offered help and in exchange Victor forced them into performing these sacrifices that convert people into a form of pure energy that can be consumed by the human body (Jonah's, to be exact).

In the present, Jonah presses Leslie to let him meet Karolina as he is actually her father. He wants to pose as an anonymous billionaire donor to the church and plans to attend the upcoming fundraiser for the school at which he'll be able to meet his daughter. Leslie is weary of the risks of being at an event her husband Frank will be at, as she's concerned he'll be suspicious.

Nico agrees to help Alex break into her mother's private server during the fundraiser event so they can find the surveillance footage of the sacrifices. Tina begins to train Nico to help her understand how to use the staff. She also shares how the staff was created in the lab and was designed to respond to Tina's DNA alone and the genetic similarity between mother and daughter is similar enough that she can access it. Tina also says that she would've let Nico read Amy's diary if she had asked. Tina is still saddened at not understanding why Amy would've killed herself.

Karolina bonds with Frank, who admits his failed attempt to go Ultra has him thinking he was pursuing something that wasn't his and she expresses her interest in the drawing of beings of light done by her grandfather.

Victor is revealed to have cloned his wife's phone and uses it to spy on her as she speaks with Robert. She admits that it's harder to have an affair now that Victor has been a kinder husband and been getting along with Chase. He admits that he knows Victor had been abusive in the past and gifts her a gun to use as a precautionary device, encouraging her to finally tell Victor about them.

The teens decide to take a single limo to the fundraiser and launch their plans to get access to the surveillance footage. They all dress up in their fancy clothing and it's more directly revealed that Karolina is romantically interested in Nico. Karolina reflects on having to re-evaluate who she is now that she sees her religion as a lie and that perhaps now she'll be able to be honest about both who she is and whom she wants to be with.

The teens and adults all arrive at the fundraiser. Jonah reunites with Leslie and Frank becomes suspicious. When the two walk off together, Frank has flashes of a memory that seems to have been erased at one point of him catching Jonah and Leslie together in bed.

Molly becomes concerned when she realises that by sending the parents away to prison she won't be able to get the information Catherine promised to give her about her parents. Molly begins to text Catherine, pressing for her to give her the information immediately, alerting Catherine that something is amiss.

Gert asks Karolina if she's interested in Nico, saying she's supportive if it's the case. Karolina is uncomfortable with speaking about the issue so she points out Gert's interest in Chase, which Gert denies. Karolina asks Chase to get a drink for her just to retaliate against Gert. The pair point out to each other that they're not being honest about who they like, before splitting off.

Karolina grabs a bottle of vodka and heads to the roof. Chase sees her walking out of the main party area when he is approached by Leslie who is looking for Karolina so she can introduce her to Jonah. Chase denies knowing where she is and follows her out. Molly follows Chase to see where he's going. Karolina is drinking her sorrows away and sits on the building's ledge, alarming Chase. An emotional Karolina fumbles the bottle and begins to fall off the ledge. Chase tries to grab her but only ends up pulling her bracelet off. Karolina falls off the ledge but stays suspended as her powers are activated and she's able to float back onto the ledge where Chase puts the bracelet back on her. He kisses her and she appears surprised and unresponsive but doesn't say anything to him to clarify that she's only interested in him as a friend. Molly witnesses the exchange.

Gert flirts with a low-level security guard to keep him distracted while Alex and Nico head up to access the server needed to get the surveillance footage. They realise they need to head to Nico's mother's office to get it. When Alex and Nico take the elevator upstairs, the guard tries to call it in to ask who is accessing the restricted area. Gert begins to play on a vintage video game which distracts the guard further into telling her it's not supposed be touched but her flirtatious charm prevents him from taking any real actions to make her stop. They are interrupted by the PI/security man Tina had contracted to dig up information on the Yorkes when they were trying to run away. Gert charms him into playing on the game with them.

Chase and Karolina get back into the party in time for the main address to be given. Victor begins to struggle with the nanobytes in his head that are supposed to be treating his brain cancer. Tina is giving a speech and thanks Robert for all his support and loyalty to the family. When Victor is given the opportunity to speak, he exposes Janet for having an affair with Robert. Victor collapses due to his cancer and Tina excuses herself, humiliated at Robert's betrayal. Victor is brought to a back room where Chase lets it slip to everyone present, including his mother, that Victor has brain cancer. Janet tries to comfort him but Chase tells her to leave. Dale offers to call 9-1-1 but Leslie says she has a better idea. She updates Jonah on Victor's illness and says she has it under control, despite Jonah's skepticism but he agrees to help.

Tina passes by Gert and the two staff playing on the vintage video game. They are apologetic and complimentary towards her but she says nothing, only giving them a judgmental stare. Gert texts Alex and Nico to warn them she's coming up. They hide behind her desk and Tina comes in and cries to herself. Nico is shocked, having never seen such vulnerability from her mother. Tina returns to the party afterward and Alex and Nico both sneak back shortly thereafter. Nico ponders how it doesn't make sense for the heartless killers they believe their parents to be to break down crying in their private office. Chase updates them on how Karolina can fly and that his mother and Nico's father are having an affair. Nico realises that this is the reason her mother was crying.

Jonah injects Victor with a special serum that cures his ailing health. Afterward Victor is shown to bed in good spirit and no longer angry at his wife. Jonah encounters Karolina and introduces himself to her as one of her mother's old friends that's new in town. Frank offers to drive Karolina home and she heads off to find his car. Frank stares Jonah down suspiciously and is about to follow after Karolina when Jonah stops him, saying he admires all the work he has down for the church. Frank says he failed to go Ultra and Jonah assures him he was successful but simply doesn't know it yet, guiding him to walk off and speak in private. Leslie watches the encounter from afar and Dale ponders how Frank should have no memory of Jonah since he took care of that problem himself. She says Frank doesn't remember him, leaving the pair to ponder what insidious things Jonah has planned for Frank.

Gert catches up with Molly, asking where Chase is. Molly shares how she followed Chase up to the roof where he kissed Karolina. Molly is apologetic but says she didn't want there to be any more lies. Gert is hurt but appreciates her honesty on the matter. Molly approaches Catherine and stresses her need to know about her parents and lets it slip that she 'didn't see a thing' and heads home with Stacey. Catherine tells Geoffrey she messed up and now believes Molly saw everything.

The Gifted S01E10 "eXploited" Recap


Two months ago, Esme was working on the campaign re-elect Senator Montez, who runs on a campaign that stresses security, human right, and a society with no mutants. Esme was working under the name Stacy. She had just asked to sit in on one of his important meetings and gets permission but is forced to flee when she receives a telepathic warning that Sentinel Services is coming. They raid the area, having been tipped off that Montez's campaign has been infiltrated by mutants but Stacy has already gotten away.

Resuming the present day plot, Polaris wants to go back and attack Sentinel Services but Reed and Caitlin want to form a practical plan that won't risk the lives of their children. John tries to get everyone on the same page but struggles to get things truly cohesive.

The Strucker children consider trying to use their combined power to escape but are still weary about doing so. Meanwhile Turner berates Sonya for manipulating his memories and causing him to forget that his daughter was dead and have to re-experience that trauma. She is apologetic but he doesn't care what she has to say on the matter. He brings the prisoners to Campbell, who wants to test the Strucker kids in particular for their abilities.

Reed and Caitlin, after speaking with Esme, head to Turner's home and hold him and his wife at gunpoint to talk about securing the release of their children. Esme relays the news to the other mutants at Underground and try to form a plan to break the kids out.

Campbell orders the Strucker kids to use their powers for testing. When they refuse, he shoots Sonya dead so they can see the threat he pressing. He then threatens to kill Blink so they relent and join hands to unleash their power for the first time within an adamantium holding cell. The monitoring scientists warns Campbell that the censors in the cell are reaching their limit but Strucker orders that they keep going. They end up causing a bit of an explosion but Campbell is still pleased with the display and orders them to be sent back to their cells and given something nice to eat for their great contribution.

Reed implores Turner to understand what's wrong about his children being tested on. Caitlin apologises for coming into their home, noting how when Turner did that to her in her own home, she was terrified. Turner's wife Paula is shaken by this information, not having realised how unethical her husband was being and horrified to hear what Caitlin shared about the experiments done on mutants that result in them being pumped full of drugs, psychologically tortured into being compliant slaves to Sentinel Services. Reed and Caitlin leave in peace and Paula stops him from calling in the authorities and pushes him to reflect on what exactly he has done in their daughter's name.

Campbell's scientists isolate an important amino acid in the Strucker kids that has been in the other Strucker siblings. Campbell believes it will serve as an important and permanent solution to the 'mutant problem'. Turner arrives at Sentinel Services with other agents and declares he'll be taking back the mutants, also learning of Sonya's death though Campbell merely claims it was an 'incident' that took place during one of the experiments.

The Underground learns that Sentinel Services has shown up to Trask Industries with many transportation vehicles and see it as the opportunity needed to free the mutant prisoners. Esme offers herself up to come along and be a key player in the plan by using her telepathy to monitor the security of the situation.

Jace and Caitlin are shocked when they come back and find out that Esme manipulated the entire situation. Esme was the one that suggested they go convince Turner to release the prisoners and agreed that they wouldn't attack but claimed to Underground that they ran off to force them to release the prisoners. They realise Esme is a danger and it's then that she uses a taser on Marcos, declaring that she has a plan of her own. She uses her telepathic powers to make the various guards kill themselves and Turner is forced to sit back and watch the destruction and horror, having been shot but not killed. Two of the prisoners are shown top e identical to Esme and get off the transport vehicle to join by her side and force the remaining guards to kill each other and themselves. Marcos wakes to see the shoot-out and runs back to the other Underground leaders and warn them what has happened. The other prisoners get off the truck and the Esme-trio tell them it's time to go and that the fun is just starting.

The Gifted airs on Mondays on FOX at 9/8c.

Heartless S01E07 "Episode 7" Recap


The morning after the confrontation in Just's office, the students gather around and take in the disarray. Emilie visits Sofie in her room and slaps her, accusing her of attacking Ida. When Sebastian comes in after Emilie leaves, he poses the theory that someone else must be after the heart as it wasn't either of them that tried to steal it in the night.

Emilie and Headmaster Just sit with Ida who is lying concussed in her bed. Emilie wants to call for medical help but Just thinks Ida will be fine without treatment and pushes Emilie to reveal who in the school is cursed. He is thankful that they didn't get a hold of what they were looking for.

Sebastian asks Nadja if she has ever known anyone 'strange' like him, hoping to discover who else is cursed and might have attacked Ida. She claims not to know of anyone else like him but does put him on the path of questioning Gustav, saying he is often roaming the halls alone at night.

Just pushes Pieter to find answers about the attack on Ida and also encourages him to ask Emilie out, hoping to push Emilie towards a more heteronormative standard. Pieter agrees to ask Emilie out.

Sebastian and Sofie follow Gustav to a random location where he meets with another cursed person who feeds on Gustav with his consent. After Gustav leaves, Sebastian and Sofie confront the man, saying they are like him. The man's name is Mikkel and his background is similar to theirs. He never knew his parents either. When it first started, he had a girlfriend that happened but things ended between them. Sebastian shares the quote Emilie shared and Mikkel shares how these were the words Ane said when she was burned at the stake and her off-spring continued on through the Justs. Mikkel claims to know where Just keeps the heart and is willing to share the location, saying he couldn't get the heart on his last attempt.

Sebastian has another encounter with Josefine in which she presents herself to him nude after showering. He struggles to keep from kissing her on the lips but affirms his feelings for her.

Sofie tells Emilie that neither she nor Sebastian were the ones who attacked Ida. Emilie still doesn't trust Sofie and their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Pieter whom Emilie has agreed to go on a date with. Sofie and Sebastian observe the pair walking off together, shocked by the sight of it before heading off to meet Mikkel. Pieter and Emilie go for a walk in the woods. He offers her a drink from his flask and she only has a little. Their time together is pleasant but when Pieter prepares to drive her back, he becomes aggressive in trying to kiss her and push her towards sexual activity. She gets out of the car and runs off. When Pieter comes driving after her, she uses her powers to knock a tree down to block the road.

Sofie and Sebastian meet with Mikkel, who instructs them on where to find the heart necklace.

Emilie doesn't tell her father about Pieter's aggressive behaviour but does chide him for pushing Pieter towards asking her out in the first place. Just becomes angry when Clara uses her own powers to play with her dinner food. Ida becomes alarmed over dinner, warning Just once again that someone is going after the heart. The two head out together while Emilie and Clara are left at home. Sebastian and Sofie search the building to find the heart while Emilie looks through photos of her with Sofie. Meanwhile Clara uses her powers on some flowers.

Sebastian, Sofie, and Mikkel continue to search for the heart when Sofie gets a text from Emilie warning her to get out. She shows Sebastian the warning message while Mikkel closes in on where the heart has been hidden. He wants to push the cabinet that has been recently moved while Sebastian and Sofie run off once they see Just drive up. Mikkel stay behind, determined to find the heart and successfully does so. Just is armed with a shotgun and fires it into the building. Upon getting inside with Ida, he discovers the open cabinet and then Mikkel on the floor, recognising him from having been at the school. Mikkel has been shot in the chest and Just knocks him out before taking the heart necklace back. Just tells Ida to keep an eye on him while he searches the rest of the house.

Just ties Mikkel up in the kill room and Mikkel wakes only to be interrogated and tortured by him. Mikkel is revealed to have been a student at the school five or six years prior but Just is intrigued by how Mikkel was able to make it through his time at the school without being caught, only to now be caught years later. Just wants the names of whomever is cursed at the school currently but Mikkel won't give up the names.

One of the janitors goes to confront Josefine again, demanding answers about Pede's death. She refuses to answer any more of his questions, standing her ground. The janitor attacks her and forces her against a cabinet, even choking her continuing to press her to answer. She relents and gives up Sebastian's name.

Sebastian ponders how they shouldn't have come to the school but Sofie shifts her tone and thanks him, saying that before they came to the school she was only existing without living. She promises that they will stay at the school no matter what.

Emilie discovers Just's kill-room and is angered by Just's violence against Mikkel. Ida has arrived with Clara in tow. Just brings them all to see Mikkel and Just presses his younger daughters to not see a tortured human but simply a predator looking for its next meal. Just claims that this kind are what killed their mother. The argument is interrupted by the janitor Henrik who wants to tell him what he has learned but Just instead uses him as a sacrifice to Mikkel's need to feed to shock his daughters into siding with his ideology against the cursed ones. He presents Ida with a blunt object, pressing her to end it. Ida takes the object and slowly approaches Mikkel. He whispers to her that he loves her and she hits him in the head till dead, shedding quiet tears for the loss of her love.

Heartless is available for streaming on Netflix.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S05E03 "A Life Spent" Recap


Kasius is stressed by the news of an important figurehead named Lady Basha who will be visiting the ship. He tells Simmons he has an important task for her and she is escorted to a room where a young girl, Abbie, is being held. When Simmons is left alone with her she discovers the girl is Inhuman and needs help to control her abilities in time for an important ceremony. Simmons determines that Abbie's ability is that she can manipulate her molecular density but can't control it.

The other team members are working hard to adapt to their roles of manual labour while Coluson is trying to decode Virgil's notebook. Grill is suspicious of the new arrivals and sends one of his men to go after them. When the team is all alone and about to go on a run, they determine that there is a particular location they need to reach but Grill's man insists on coming along with them on the run.

Daisy is skeptical of the theory of her being the one to tear the world apart as her abilities aren't strong enough to do something of that magnitude. She is alarmed when she learns about the Renewal but is assured that her loves ones have survived.

On the space expedition, May and Coulson discuss their predicament. Coulson is skeptical of there being a way to get back to their original time but May is determined that they will find a way home. Coulson, May, Mack, and Tess discover a radio transmitter that Virgil was using to communicate with someone. Grill's spy activates their devices that latch them to the wall but May uses their secure state to lurch the ship. Mack intervenes to fight off the spy and break the device and free them. The spy is knocked out and Tess is alarmed, saying that they are all dead for attacking a superior.

Yo-Yo sabotages her monitoring device so that while it is removed to be worked on she can use her ability to get a Kree tablet to Daisy but return back before anyone can realise she was gone. Daisy is determined to use it to rescues Simmons from captivity.

Simmons successfully coaches Abbie to better control her ability but is alarmed when Abbie is escorted away, not being able to get a more adequate amount of time to coach her. Kasius is skeptical of his second-in-command, wondering if she was trying to set Simmons up to fail but determines that she does in fact want Kasius to be happy. He asks her what makes Simmons so different and his subordinate responds, "Compassion."

Deke is angry at Daisy for what he considers to be reckless behaviour in trying to go after the blue people. She is forced to use her powers to keep him away from her and warns him not to ever call her "Quake, destroyer of worlds" again.

Tess proposes they send Grill's spy out into space, believing it to be the only way but Mack doesn't want them to resort to what he considers needless murder. When the ship nears the remains of Earth, they are shocked to pick up on a live signal coming from its surface. This would indicate survivors.

Lady Basha arrives to the ship and the ceremony takes place. Simmons is alarmed when Abbie is put into a combat fight against one of Lady Basha's large fighters. Kasius and Lady Basha watch surrounded by their servants. Simmons is emotional watching Abbie be beaten. Abbie looks up to Simmons who reminds her of her earlier advice which gives her the focus needed become dense enough that the fighter breaks his hand when trying to punch her in the chest. Abbie begs the man to leave her alone but when he charges, her hand phases into his chest and when she re-strengthens, he dies from having an object penetrate his chest. Lady Basha is impressed and Kasius sells Abbie to her. Simmons is horrified at this turn of events.

The team returns from space and frames Grill's spy to be a traitor. Grill turns on him and reports him to the higher authorities so he's exiled to die on Earth. They later revisit their radio transmitter and realise there is a party on Earth somehow even though no one is supposed to be able to survive on the surface.

Daisy gets caught on her way in and fights off her attackers but is eventually captured due to Deke betraying her by warning Kasius, who is surprised to find that the infamous Quake is somehow still alive and present on the ship but decides to make her his new champion to likely sell off to the highest bidder.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Fridays on ABC at 8/7c.

Ghost Wars S01E09 "Post-Apocalypse Now" Recap


The town mortician, Sophia, offers to help a young boy that is lost but when she hugs she appears to deplete his life force.

Landis tries to help Billy recall his memories from when he was a ghost and together they realise that the large blue light he was seeing was the accelerator in the the LAMBDA institute.

Things are still tense between Roman and Rev. Dan. Dan tries to mend their relationship but Roman isn't interested after such a heavy betrayal.

Landis and Billy converge on a field where a LAMBDA helicopter has landed but are quickly surrounded by armed passengers of it. Dr. Clark is the leader of the group and Landis knows her as her boss. She shares the information she has on the strange happenings in the town and Clark is unsurprised by the revelation, saying that the town had disappeared entirely from the outside perspective. Clark tasks one of the agents with guarding Billy at the helicopter while Landis accompanies Clark with other guards to head into town.

Dan discovers the body of a woman, Melanie, that has killed herself. He visits Sophia and asks her to help him take care of the body and she agrees. Sophia runs off when she and Dan are interrupted tending to the body by another town resident. Sophia is later shown to be luring another stranger down into her basement.

Billy is able to disarm his guard and hold him at gunpoint, taking him as a hostage back into town. They arrive at the bar where various LAMBDA higher-ups are trying to offer help but are met with distrust by the townsfolk. Roman correctly deduces that the man claiming to be their leader isn't actually in charge. A woman named Daphne Holt introduces herself as the one in charge and class  she'll be able to solve the ghost problem.

Landis is at LAMBDA sharing all the information with Clark and how she had to strip the electrical components from the accelerator to act as a shield that nullifies the ghost's hallucinogenic-inducing powers. Clark orders her to get the accelerator running again. Daphne meets Landis who warns her that restarting the accelerator is a bad idea. Daphne becomes interested in Roman's powers when she observes him using them on some surveillance footage of him fending off a ghost that was attacking Landis.

Billy and his sister clash with their opinions on the new LAMBDA officers. Billy doesn't trust them but his sister is more willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Landis comes over and informs them they need to try to stop LAMBDA from re-starting the accelerator. Meredith agrees to talk to Daphne Holt. Billy is upset at Landis for keeping secret her part in what may have caused the ghostly problems of the town but when she reminds him of what he and the others did to Roman's mother he relents.

LAMBDA is working on preparing the accelerator but Landis looks Clark in a holding cell so he can encounter a ghost and understand what they have been dealing with. He begins screaming in terror almost immediately after she cuts the electrical power of the room. He is shaken from the hallucinations he experiences and is determined to leave but Landis informs him that they are all trapped and have been ever since this started. When Clark tells Daphne, she is unsurprised, having always known of this risk.

Dan visits Sophia to see how she is doing and after she invites him in, she grabs his hand and begins to weaken him with some sort of seemingly supernatural-ability and her eyes turn completely black while doing so. She proceeds to kidnap him and drive him to the strange house she was 'laying eggs' in at the end of the previous episode. She forces him against a glowing orb that unleashes tendrils that attach to him. Sophia leaves him entangled and Dan prays to god to be killed. He spots a nearby basked of sewing supplies and is able to retrieve a pair of scissors that he uses the cut the tendrils off of him and break free. He sets a curtain in the attic on fire before running outside and getting away.

Clark fills Landis in on Daphne's interest in colonising heaven. It's unclear what they caused by starting the accelerator. Landis wants to fix the damage and Clark tells her Daphne won't stop until she completes her mission.

Daphne visits Roman, wanting to communicate with the ghost of her mother or perhaps simply any ghost. She has visions of her sick mother on her deathbed.

Landis gets drunk in Billy's trailer, feeling defeated and helpless in stopping LAMBDA from causing more devastation. He offers to go with her back up to the building and smash things up to keep them from causing more damage and put people in harm's way.

The townsfolk head up to the LAMBDA institute and demand answers about the recent disappearances of people that started up after these new people arrived. The two opposing parties end up in a standoff. Roman, Billy, and Landis advise Daphne to tell her men to stand down. Their standoff is broken up when they spot the smoke from the fire and the two parties agree to head out together to try to put it out.

The fire is put out but the house is still in bad shape. Meredith expresses her distrust of Daphne, which doesn't seem to phase her much. Roman notes that they all have no choice but to work together since they're all trapped and in danger together.

Billy confides in Landis that he saw Roman's power in action from the other side and was shaken by the magnitude of his power. He believes Roman himself doesn't realise how much power he has and Landis says this is something he can work with.

The LAMBDA staff load something up from the house and head back to the lab while Dan watches in secret, hidden in the trees.

Ghost Wars airs on Thursdays on Syfy at 10/9c.
