The House Between, Episodes 1 - 6

For those readers generously giving my independent web series The House Between a try leading up to the third season premiere this Friday (the 30th), here are the links/synopses to episodes 1 thru 6 of the saga.

Episode 1: "Arrived"
This is the first installment of the sci-fi serial, in which singer-songwriter Astrid (Kim Breeding) awakens to find herself in a strange, empty old house. Among those she encounters are a strange squatter in the kitchen, Arlo (Jim Blanton), the "one step at a time" scientist, Bill T. Clark (Tony Mercer) and the difficult, secretive lawyer, Travis (Lee Hansen).
The enigmatic new arrival in the strange "house ... at the end of the universe," named Theresa (Alicia A. Wood) spins a fantastic tale about her background that the other denizens have difficulty believing. While Theresa ruffles feathers with her unusual manner, Bill (Tony Mercer) discovers a diary that seems to have a connection to the family he's been separated from, a fact which vexes him. Meanwhile, Astrid also confronts a "ghost" from her past in the form of a haunting melody; one that brings up tragic memories
Tempers boil over when the manipulative Travis (Lee Hansen) seizes the kitchen, thereby sending unstable, obsessive Arlo (into a tailspin). Travis's hostility sparks a revelation from Arlo; and Theresa and Astrid attempt to mediate a solution with Travis.

Episode 4: "Visited"
In "Visited," Arlo's act of violence in the strange house summons malevolent creatures outside in the blackness, the mysterious "Outdwellers."

Episode 5: "Mirrored"
A new danger emerges when provisions dwindle...and a shortage of food is imminent in the hermetically-sealed house. In an effort to communicate with their invisible warden or caretaker, psychic Theresa (Alicia A. Wood) suggests a seance. Unfortunately, the seance has drastic repercussions, landing a mysterious mirror in the house; one that has profound impact on Astrid (Kim Breeding), Arlo (Jim Blanton), Travis (Lee Hansen), Bill Clark (Tony Mercer) and even Theresa herself.

Episode 6: "Trashed"
A sinister telepath named Sange (Florent Christol) from Theresa's (Alicia A. Wood) past arrives via faulty transit on a secret mission to kill one of the denizens of the "house at the end of the universe." Meanwhile, Travis (Lee Hansen) takes matters into his own hands when Arlo (Jim Blanton) won't clean up the increasingly chaotic house, specifically his collection of tin cans. Finally, Sange's influence spurs a revelation that changes everything for Astrid (Kim Breeding), Bill (Tony Mercer) and the other captives.
