Adventures in Odyssey: A Stranger Among Us
Connie, Dylan, and Eugene are alone at Whit’s End while Whit is stranded outside of Odyssey during a storm. Dylan and Connie are watching a horror movie on TV, despite that fact that Eugene warns them that they should be careful about what is put in their minds. A news bulletin alerts them that a convict has escaped from Connellsville Penitentiary, and when stranded travelers stop at Whit’s End for shelter, all three of them get carried away with fear. When it appears that one of the travelers, Mr. Smith, has been murdered by the other, Mr. Birnbaum, and Connie seems to disappear, they assume he is the fugitive and Eugene sets off in a mad pursuit when Mr. Birnbaum flees. Whit returns and finds Connie accidentally locked in the freezer and the traveler they presumed dead simply in a diabetic coma and in need of insulin. After nearly killing them both, Eugene is rescued by Mr. Birnbaum. Whit makes Dylan, Eugene, and Connie work overtime to make up for the damage they have done and reminds them to beware of the kind of material they put into their heads.
