"There must have been a hundred sets of glowing eyes in front of them. Some of their figures were only shadows.But some of the closest ones, the ones moving towards them now, they could see their faces. Their bodies. All of them looked malevolent. All of them seemed to be coming directly for them."
TW: Dan's second story has a violent story woven into the horror story. Proceed with caution and take care while listening.
Toad Road AKA The Seven Gates of Hell is a classic haunting. Dan tells such a great sotry about two teens trying to prove their bravery and prove the rumors to be true. One gate, two gates, three gates, four, five and six... what happens when they cross over the sixth gate? Then a very fun flash back to our teen years with a story of a haunted house owned by none other than TLC singer T-Boz! An all around creepy, albeit sad, story that will make you consider following your gut about your kids friends.
Lynze gives us a palette cleanser for the first story, sharing a tale of a sweet moment between a skeptic and possibly, his deceased mother. An LDS missionary gets more than he bargained for when he asks the question, "How powerful is the Devil?". Can you conjure up the evil just as easily as the good? Closing out the show, Lynze explores the idea of a premonition via a dream.

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
"Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened. Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH."
