Trapped in a room without any doors and windows. No way of escape. In urgent need of medical care. Mr. Whitaker has found himself in a dangerous situation. How will he escape? That's just one of many mysteries plaguing the town of Odyssey this year. Next, the Statue of Liberty is stolen and every clue points to Nick Mulligan as the culprit. Will he be able to prove his innocence? It's up to Whit and his latest inventions around the shop to help the police solve the case. Furthermore, Connie keeps getting mysterious cellphone calls from a stranger. Why? Will Liz and Mandy patch up the friendship? Will a commercial be made about Whit's End? How has life been treating Jimmy Barclay, who has recently moved to Washington DC? Connie gets to find out as she spends time with him in our nation's capital. And, many people around Odyssey spend time passing around a toy lamb during Christmas. In the process, we meet Grady McKay and his sister Samantha. And, the folks behind-the-scenes of the show try something different. A voting forum was set up on the official Odyssey site to choose from 2 possible endings for "My Girl Hallie". A hard choice, but not as difficult as the one the Washington family has to make. Something has to change for them.
