She left many of us behind. She left us heartbroken. And though we cry now there'll come a time when we'll laugh. Because we'll see her again someday. We'll be with her in heaven. And when we go to heaven she'll be there to greet us. She'll be there to say "Welcome home." -From a poem that SnC wrote about her grandmother

Hey, I can't help myself. ;) The brief review below may contain some basic spoilers, so listen to the episode first!

Firstly, I love every character in this episode! The news ones were great! Mayor Spencer Hicks was very good, Alicia has a good voice (she reminds me of Monica Stone), and even minor characters like Andrew were enjoyable. I felt album 51 was ruined due to both poor characters and an overall lack of characters, so this was fantastic.

Some good lines:
"If you're going to give a girl a rose, it shouldn't be black."
"Because in the mysteries, the butler always does it."

Speaking of black roses, I remember those from the "clue" image we got for Album 52. There's one mystery solved. ;) The mystery of this episode is completely out in the open, though. I was entertained and mystified through every second of this premiere. Although The Inspiration Station wasn't bad, this beats it in every way.

I liked it!
The story was entertaining, the characters played well off of each other, and it was definitely nice to see Eugene working on technical stuff again instead of running away from birds. :p

Wow!! This episode is even better than I thought it would be! We finally have a complicated mystery that is more than just a single episode. We haven't had that since Album 48 with "The Top Floor" & "The Other Side Of The Glass". Also, even though I liked "The Inspiration Station", I would definitely agree with those who said that this episode is a much better season opener. (By the way, I tend to like every AIO episode that was ever produced, even the split episodes. That's just me, I guess. :) )

One of the things I liked best about this episode is where it switches back and forth between Alicia Jennings and Michael Butler telling the story.

Connie, Eugene, Micheal, & Alicia played their roles nicely. I am glad that Matthew was in this episode, as he is my new favorite kid character. Mayor Spencer Hicks wasn't as much of a part of this ep. as I thought he would be, but it appears that he will make a good replacement for Mayor Faye, whose time as mayor has been a bit too long in my opinion. Andre as Whit has been the norm for me since Album 51 and he did an exceptional job as Whit in this episode. Anthony (the Janitor) was good as well.

The last few scenes were heart-pounding (at least for me) and they were very well done from every angle of production, as was this whole episode.

I also enjoyed the electronica/techno style music woven into the transition music in this episode.

One thing I wish they would do is include the Andre Whit saying his lines during the theme when they air them on the radio. The only place that this is found is on Album 51. Also, since this is the "fullest" AIO album yet, I wonder what extended/new scenes will be found for this episode on Album 52.

I enjoyed this episode immensely. 10 out of 5 stars!!

That concludes my first episode review ever!! Yeah!! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Yay for the first episode! \:D/
I'll review it later on my blog, and then copy it over here. But needless to say, this is even better than The Inspiration Station!

Why do you think these strange things are happening? Who knows that it was Wendy's little sister who caused the mix-up?

Speculate here. ;)

I wasn't able to hear this ep on the radio today because our Christian station didn't play it!!! :x
But I've just listened to it on the Internet!!! Huzah and WoooTon!! \:D/ \:D/

All right!! We finally here the new Odyssey theme on the radio version. The theme makes the show after all.
Hearing all the most important Odyssey characters with a mix of the new characters was great. The music was awesome. It reminded me of Novacom. :D

I think I already know who's the culprit but I hope I'm wrong. I want to be suprised.
Overall, great show! Sooo much better than the last season's premiere.

Next episode please! =D>
