While the ordinarily astute and school loving Jake lets his mind turn in on itself, Cody insists and promises he will always be there for Jake, no matter what happens. But, he is leading Jake into a false narrative. For if the contents true, that promise will be broken instantly.
Jake Stands alone at his window thinking about past events, meanwhile a package is on it's way to him. Pandora's box might be in that package leading Jake to travel deeper into the rabbit hole to discover the truth. Has Everything been a lie? Or does the one he loves really care about him?
