Episode Recap

Jessica and her friend Sheriff Tupper are on their way to Portland by bus to attend a benefit, when a huge thunderstorm hits along the way. Before the bus can reach its destination, however, it breaks down right in front of a small, secluded inn. After this, all of the passengers temporarily depart from the vehicle. When Jessica & Sheriff Tupper return to the bus after their food-break, they discover one of the passenger's has been murdered – knowing that one or more of their nine fellow passengers on the bus has to have been behind it... With everyone trapped at the small inn with no power, no communications, and no way out, it's up to Jessica & Tupper to solve the mystery, before it's too late.
