If my science fiction can’t hold you over until then, I encourage you to check out my extensive archives (it should only take you a minute, I promise). And now, without further interruption, TDDC:

Last week, on The Dead Don’t Cry, Lucy discovered a secret hidden aboard her father’s ship. This week, we join Jack and Shane as they meet the dreaded HyKin face to face. As always, enjoy!
