Episode Six

ChockyMatthew goes missing from school, and is gone for five days, during which reports surface that he got into a stranger’s car; he abruptly turns up mostly unharmed, aside from having received several injections and claiming to have been in a violent car wreck. Matthew remembers having been in a hospital, but not much else. As Matthew sleeps, Chocky emerges and finally speaks to another human being – Matthew’s father – to explain why Matthew was chosen…and what must happen to him now.
