405. Shape of Shadows: Scotch and Soda Part 3

Our heroes work to keep party guests entertained while pursuing their secret goal of slipping a business card into the Mayor’s jacket. However, JJ doesn’t seem to understand there is something very wrong with the ‘slight of hand” he is performing which keeps producing real wild animals that behave erratically. The party itself has a disquieting and ominous tone that unsettles Daisy and Pennsylvania who struggle to keep their cool in the chaos.

CONTENT NOTE
Animals summoned with magic prey on one another and are harmed  in magical accidents, some body horror involving animals being summoned from people’s drinks
