Allie and Nick have been in Everlost for a few years. Like everything else that fails to get to where it’s going, they’ve settled in an unpredictable routine that’s become more like a mission. Their days are not consumed by tedious repetition or useless patterns Mary Queen of Snots would approve of. Allie and Nick have long-term goals. The dynamics differ for each, but in the end all Allie wants is to find her home; Nick wants to destroy Mary Hightower. Left to her own extreme ideas of what’s really best for the children of Everlost, her selfish ideals have begun to sink to new lows. Now she’s demonizing Nick as the “Chocolate Ogre,” perpetuating a self-fulfilling prophecy that threatens to overwhelm Nick’s operation and reveal Mary’s true colors. Neither Nick or Allie is ready to take their coin yet, nor as it turns out, is Mary. And Mikey, Allie’s companion on her journey to find her family, seems to be a bit too preoccupied with how boring his natural state is now that he is no longer The McGill…
