Novacom is sure creating a disturbance around Odyssey. With their violent and controversial television programming, some of the people in town are ready to destroy the studio themselves. Can Novacom's bright new public relations representative Robert Mitchell (Mitch) relieve the town's worries? Will he be able to win Connie's heart? Regardless, there are even more important events happening around town. Whit has decided to partner with Mary Hopkins, owner of Mary's Story Shop, in creating a new Whit's End in the dangerous Oswald Heights district of Connellsville. What's more, Whit finds a tiny camera hidden in his office. Who's spying on him? Why? The gang encounters even more questions when the plans and circuitry for the Imagination Station are stolen and given to a mysterious stranger. Who is he? Why does he want them? So many frightening things are happening. But, in the midst of them, the Harlequin Theatre begins an annual bike race, we learn how Whit met his wife Jenny, Jason finds himself in the middle of a spiritual battle in South America, and we meet Odyssey's most lovable and very unique mailman Wooton Basset. Sucpiciously though, Mandy and Sarah then discover that the reason Jared DeWhite disappeared a couple years ago was because he and his family are in the witness protection program. Upon their meeting, he gives the girls a frightening warning. Beware Andromeda!
