Description

An unprecedented wave of criminal activity has broken over the town, and its citizens are stunned. Thefts, broken windows, graffiti... who on earth is behind this outbreak of lawlessness? It’s up to the crew at Whit's End to find out. But as Jack, Jason, Eugene and the others set out to uncover the answer, they face a tremendous test of faith, friendship and forgiveness. Will they get through this dark time to see the light of dawn?

Bonus Features

There are no extra features on this album, but the episodes do feature a total of 3 minutes and 19 seconds of extra scenes that had to be deleted from the original broadcast versions in order to keep them at the appropriate time for the radio.

Story Arc

Eleven of the episodes in this album contributed to a massive storyline that ended many long-standing AIO points. This album wrapped up the Dr. Regis Blackgaard saga, Eugene's salvation, some of the history of Odyssey, and a few minor points. The only episode that does not contribute to any of these storylines is 323: A Little Credit, Please.
