While “Dead of Summer” may not be getting all of the attention it deserves just yet, we are hoping that this is going to be a pattern that changes over the course of the weeks ahead. After all, this is a show that is doing a few things that are very interesting, including a modernization of some summer-camp / scary-movie tropes.
On next week’s new episode, there is going to be a little bit of romance; however, at the same time there could be some danger as the counselors realize that maybe a night off isn’t the best thing in the world. Also, get ready for an hour that will be essential for understanding the Cricket character better, given that he are going to have an opportunity to learn more about him both in the past and in the present. Take a look at the synopsis below for a little more insight:
“The summer is off to a rough start for the counselors at Camp Stillwater and a night away in town is a much-needed break. Both Cricket and Jesse see the free time as an opportunity to make headway with their crushes, but when one of them goes a little too far the evening takes a dangerous turn. Stuck covering the campers while the rest are in town, Blair and Joel use movie night as a way to make their own romantic overtures.
“Meanwhile, flashbacks show why Cricket’s plans to attract Alex’s attention include insulting graffiti.”
Just in case that’s not enough for you, we’ve also go the promo below to enjoy … though given the subject matter, that may not be the right word.
