After a brief reunion with his father, Jeremiah returns to Thunder Mountain. Markus sends
Jeremiah and Kurdy on different - and dangerous - parts of a mission to free the imprisoned
Alliance leaders before their captors can carry out a standing execution order.
STRANGE ATTRACTORS deals with Markus, Jeremiah, Kurdy and the others who survived last week's
battle desperately trying to find any other alliance leaders who also survived Valhalla's
brutal attack. They have just hours to find imprisoned alliance leaders before their impending
deaths lead to the collapse of the tenuous alliance forever.

SCOTT MITCHELL ROSENBERG AT THE ABYSS SAID:
I was riveted by Mister Smith when I first read the script, then
again in the dailies and producers cuts and even more so in the final version. One of my
favorite scenes is when Mister Smith, visibly shaken, recounts six words "god" just said to
him and the tone in god's voice:
Mister Smith: There was sadness and grief and weariness (in the god's voice) but under it
all...anger. The kind of anger that makes you throw yourself on the ground and cover your
face and apologize for everything you've ever done in your entire life.
But what did god say??? What are those six words that will haunt us throughout this season's
saga? "Look to the east, and despair."
Oh, and by the way, I've seen every script and every piece of footage for all the episodes,
and I will tell you one thing without giving a spoiler (I won't even tell you if it is indeed
god!): that voice Mister Smith heard? Those six words? Well... god wasn't kidding.
