Camp Stillwater is once again open for business on this week’s episode of DEAD OF SUMMER. But something seems to be very wrong with one of the campers.
After the campers arrive on opening day, Alex and Blotter realize one of their new charges, Anton, is going to be a handful. It turns out that Anton has a tendency to wander off into the woods while talking to himself. At first, Alex and Blotter just think that Anton has an imaginary friend, but when Anton starts talking about “the Tall Man” and giving them cryptic messages, they start to wonder if there’s something lurking in the woods. We’re also going to see flashbacks to Alex’s past, which will reveal where he got his “if you want something in life, you have to take it” attitude.
Meanwhile, the deputy watches a TV show about Satanists and starts to wonder if they might be responsible for what’s happening at the camp. And Joel finds the box that Deb unearthed, but she interrupts him before he gets a chance to see what’s inside.
