A passed by Mr Bill Turcotte stopped Frank and killed him with a knife. A nice and simple story for a nice and simple town. Jake then rings Directory assistance

  11. Jake makes it to The Diner but it feels very strange with out Al, He makes it through the rabbit hole and begins to search for the yellow card man but he science him sprawled out on the concrete with his eyes open in a pool of blood his throat has been slashed from ear to ear and in one hand is a jagged shade of green metal and in the other the card that once was yellow then orange is now dead black.

What I Think – Well the bodies are beginning to pile up first because for Jake messing about with time, that one I can accept things have to get worse before they can get better but the death of Al just seems a bit of unnecessary death, as for the yellow card man I do hope that doesn’t turn out be times idea of bad joke.
