The Agents of R Cell are suddenly roused from their regular lives to take on an investigation that sends them to Helena, Montana. There, they must look into the death of Deputy Sheriff Fred Jacob. The official cause of death is listed as heavy metal poisoning, but Delta Green believes his death has more to do with the Unnatural. Join us as Agent Rowan rallies her team and sets off for Montana to begin digging. Support this podcast

Having arrived in Helena, Montana and received information from their local contact, R Cell sets up and begins their investigation by starting with the deceased.

Having learned that Deputy Sheriff Fred Jacob encountered something unnatural days before he died, R Cell continues their investigation.

1 hr 20 min

Shaken by their discoveries in the Jacob household, R Cell regroups to discuss their findings. Agent Rory checks in with the medical staff tending to the coroner in the hospital, while the rest of R Cell begins their search for Patient Zero, the strange man found by Deputy Sheriff Jacob in the rainstorm. Their best lead is the badge with a stylized “B” he wore. River also obtains a new investigative lead when he contacts his counterpart from the EPA, intruding on her earlier investigation. Theories abound as they search for the truth. Support this podcast

While Agent Gaylor was not pleased by R Cell’s intrusion on her investigation, she did point them in the direction of the Oakland Pit.

“The acid may have been a mistake,” River says, shivering from the horror of what he saw inside the Green Box. Something is going very wrong with the body they stole and the Agents of R Cell will have to handle this new Unnatural complication. What is actually going on inside that barrel?

After the disturbing events at the Green Box, R Cell returns to town for much needed food and answers. What are these Mi-Go? What about Operation Mirage?
