Seeing a familiar face should have been a good thing, but this isn’t the same Jing-Wei the teens knew.
Upon arriving at Sanctuary, the group is faced with two clearly malicious and dangerous caretakers.
A figure from the group’s past reappears, bringing up some serious questions about their remade lives.
The Bookburners thought they had seen some strange things in their time, but as they watch London become a hellscape, its own buildings rising up and rampaging through the streets, they realize it’s only going to get stranger from here on out.
I enjoyed writing this episode for its sense of foreshadowing, the way it lays down a few basic principles that we planned to use for the rest of the season.
But while the members of Team Three dash around the world (and beyond it) as a matter of course, the most traveling I generally do for the series is an annual flight east for our story summits. I thought it was cool that Andrea had done to research to reference a real artifact, but I figured a picture on the Internet would be the extent of my involvement with the Punic Egg. I didn’t think I’d actually, you know, lay eyes on the damn thing. Until this summer, when where should I find myself but… London
The original concept for this episode as proposed (...by me) during the summit was “Spooky Forest.”
This is the 10th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Andrea Phillips.
At this stage in writing Bookbuners, each of us on the writing team has a particular kind of episode that we’re considered to be good at.
This is the 9th episode in the third season of Bookburners, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Brian Francis Slattery.
In index card form, the episode 7 logline was: “The Halls of Amazon Run Red with Blood.” And well, who wouldn’t want to write that?
