The Rundown: Huge changes come into the lives of the Sangerye family and not everyone will be there to see them.
One of the Sangerye’s will fall at the hands of the forces amassed against them and that death will change the lives, purpose and trajectories of the survivors. With death comes new life and new changes to the family, but the fight remains the same as the split group finds themselves fighting a new enemy in disguise. As Blink investigates the death of her uncle, Berg travels to the park to find a missing ally only to find himself face to face with a new enemy.
In the south, Ford and Cullen have teamed up with Sarah to clear the same evil out of a town. An evil that has targeted an orphanage. Blink prepares to take on her new role as leader, but she knows that this fight will require more than just her family. It will require all the families that have been fighting these evils to come together and fight as one. A task that will bring forth an unknown ally.
