Season: 1 Episode: 12

Weary from the long drive, Elenore and Rachel trade bits of personal history-- but something seems off about the whole situation. Maybe it's the way the car defies physics or perhaps it's the manner in which crustaceans keep interrupting. Rachel warns herself that something odd is afoot, but she doesn’t listen, and those foots has flippers. The dark ride becomes curiouser and curiouser. Confused yet? Maybe the cat can make it more clear. Meow, to that. Amen!
