    A BELIEVER PREQUEL: Set approximately 4 years before the events of season one, Lara pairs with Rose for the very first time in order to deal with an entity that’s been split into two. Deep in the Oregon Caves, Lara diligently applies scientific methods that never seem to stick, while at the Corwin Lake House, Rose attempts direct contact and finds much more than she anticipated. Can they solve the mystery and survive the night - without hating each other?
