The plot of the society season
The group of teens who are acting as the main characters in the society got a small break from the smell since they had returned to the camp trip. While in their sleep, the coach driver tells them that they had to go back in the middle of the night to west ham town.
From the murmurings, after they entered the school buses, they got a sense that the smell had vanished. However what happened? then they found themselves at the crux of the problems, where a wealthy town miraculously turned out to be very empty, raising some concerns among the group.
In true teenage drama, other than panicking, the characters opted to hold a party to celebrate the absence of their parents which showed how ridiculous horny these students were. As the party continues, Grizz who acted as Jack Mulhern realized something writing on a wall had disappeared which was believed to be some of the biblical words which were to come important later.
Gwen also realized that they were not connected to the outside world, since they could not access any signal, no 911, no data. The following day, Harry acted as Alex Fitzalan tried to venture on the road and noticed that all the possible exits had been blocked. It looked that the whole town was covered by woodlands.
Grizz decided to create a search party, on the other hand, Harry in the company of Cassandra clashed for possible plans. Campbell did a foolish decision of informing the whole town that they had been trapped, activating everyone into a panicking situation.
