Lucia and Beckett continue their infiltration of the abandoned building, but as they learn some troubling truths, they find themselves fighting a battle on two fronts.  On one side, they're fighting through mannequins; on the other, some newly arrived werewolves, pursued by a certain hunter.  At the other side of town, Black Sabbath continues-- but a calm autograph session is interrupted by a cruel and ostentatious individual...

After an unexpected hiatus, we return to Pittsburgh, where things are quite complicated.  Branch is separated from his backup and forced to resort to violence or perish.  Lucia, Lena and Lesleigh appear in the summer court, and must figure out their diplomatic approach-- made all the more complicated by Jean's continued reluctance to give up the artifact book.  And Luther, still running from the mysterious man who destroyed Serafine's apartment, is driving around town, hoping from an explanation from her new companion...

The group splits up to take care of their individual problems.  Lucia, Lesleigh and Lena go to the Winter Court to negotiate the release of Jean; Luther (and Brandon, per Lena's request) head to Serafine's apartment to being a bodyguard detail; and Branch teams up with Constances' hired musclewizard Chad to help Emil get to the bottom of the vampiric abductions.  But nothing is quite as simple as it seems.  The Winter Court is visibly having problems of its own, without meddling summer fae.  Branch's plucky luck may have finally met its match.  And the thing Serafine fears so much is a curiously familiar stranger...

Note: The end of the episode has an announcement about the short-term future of the podcast, but in short:  we're unable to determine whether Kyle will be able to run games in the future.  It could be nothing, but the worst case scenario is 8 weeks.  To help, we are putting Steel City Rhapsody on hiatus, and playing Fellowship instead, GMed by Bee.  Even if it turns out to be nothing, we end up with some buffer, and we plan on coming back to Fellowship to fill downtime between campaigns.

Thank you for your support and understanding, as always.
