Axel and Phil searching for Jennifer on a dirt road somewhere in a vampire-infested Nebraska.
Departing characters are sometimes featured in an episode that has little or nothing to do with the main storyline just before they leave the show. They did it for Mohamed, Axel (who did not leave) and Scarlett, at the end of Season Three. Jackie May wrote the departure episodes for Axel and Mohamed, as well as this one, which is the send-off episode for Phil.
Axel (Jonathan Scarfe) and Phil (Vincent Gale) follow a dirt road to the east in pursuit of Max, who has taken Phil’s wife and son hostage. (For some reason, Max did not take US Route 30.) Phil begins the episode feeling frustrated and discouraged.

PHIL:“Why did it take so long for you to get us out of that place?” AXEL:“I’m gonna make it right. I’m gonna find this prick and I’m gonna kill him.” PHIL:“No no no. That’s for me.” AXEL:“If that’s the way you want it.” PHIL:“I gotta make it right, too.”

Tricia Helfer (Dracula in Season Four) will star in a CREEPSHOW episode titled “Lydia Layne’s Better Half”, based on a story by showrunner Greg Nicotero and John Harrison, and directed by Roxanne Benjamin. Lydia is a powerful woman who denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout. The six episode series (each episode has two stories) is a TV revival of the 1982 horror anthology film of the same name. (Adrienne Barbeau who appeared in the original film, will also appear in the TV series, starring in an adaptation of Steven King’s short story “Grey Matter“.) CREEPSHOW completed production in Atlanta in April and will air on SHUDDER later this year.
