It's almost Passover, and residents of Fairneck, New Jersey can't help but wonder if the plagues of Egypt are really a thing of the past. The most recent offense? The mysterious appearance of 182 frogs in Joey Kershner's restaurant late last night. Luckily, Fairneck's best investigative journalist is on the case. Michal Rabinowitz, future Pulitzer Prize winner and current seventh grader, is not afraid to dig deep and ask the tough questions, like, why does everyone in town think Joey is so handsome when clearly he's old and gross? All she knows for sure is that someone in Fairneck is about to die, and it's up to Joey who it will be.   Want more Fairneck in your life?

A freak plague-related accident is about to take place in Fairneck just in time for Passover. Now, Fairneck's resident investigative journalist, Michal Rabinowitz, takes us back to last Tuesday to catch us up on everything we've missed.  Even before frogs were swarming the most popular restaurant in town, plagues and small town gossip were creeping up all over the place. Shoshana's romantic history with Joey Kershner, Fairneck's most eligible bachelor, might be getting in the way of her best friend Ilana's marriage plot. And, the over-eighty book club in town is reading the erotic novel Close Encounters on a Time Machine yet again, due to a shared case of pretend dementia.  While Fairneck residents are distracted by old and new crushes, erotic novels, and kosher egg rolls, a host of unexplained events start to occur. What's with all the yeshiva students getting lice? Why do the lights keep going out? Are all these cats dying for a reason? And, what in the world is a geese repeller...and, do they sell them online?    THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS The Vibe of the Tribe Podcast The Vibe of the Tribe podcast by Jewish Boston explores arts & culture, Israel, food, tradition history and more.

The seventh grade protest against frog dissection has everyone at Ramban letting their guard down (well, except for Beth, who suspects the students are buying drugs on something called Instagram). With The Place catering the event, Joey jumps at the chance to see Shoshana. Will familiar sparks fly, or will it just be a case of nostalgia for the old days? (And, as Michal says, you bet your ham strings Joey is nostalgic walking down those halls again). Meanwhile, Ilana sends her students blindfolded through the school to learn about the darkness plague. She didn't count on them hurting themselves that much. Oh well. How else do we learn? And, Michal takes us back in time to when Joey and Shoshana were high school sweethearts. Maybe they really were as intense as everyone says. So, what actually happened?   Want more Fairneck in your life? Follow A Place Called Fairneck on Twitter and Instagram!    Want to support this show and its creators?

Our story continues as Michal turns back time to last Thursday, three days before someone in Fairneck will die in a plague-related accident just before Passover. Beth finds a cigarette at Ramban and opens a full investigation, with Shoshana and Ilana at the helm. Meanwhile, Ben gets a visit from an eccentric electrician to help fix some loose wires in the basement...as we've learned, faulty wiring can be quite dangerous. And, a chance meeting between Joey and Ben at The Sleepy Bean Cafe has each of them trying desperately to prove just how handy he is (Spoiler alert: They're both lying).    Want more Fairneck in your life?

It's the long awaited Open Mic Night at The Lion's Den, and everyone's come out after Shabbos for the event. Even Joey can't resist crossing enemy lines to see what all the fuss is about. Ilana performs her own unique version of open mic, while Joey takes things a little less seriously. Meanwhile, tensions rise between Ben and Shoshana. What is Shosh so upset about anyway? And, Pharoah and the Plagues perform their hit song, Hail Storm For Your Love, a Fairneck favorite.

In the season finale episode, Michal returns to where the story began - Sunday morning in Fairneck. It hasn't been an easy morning for anyone. Lovesick and tormented, Joey tries to distract himself with work, only to find his restaurant filled with loud and slimy frogs - where did they come from? Meanwhile, a few blocks away, Ben apologizes to Shoshana after their big fight at the open mic night. Although, he might not be so sorry if he knew her secret. And, across town, a hyper and eager Beth visits Ilana on a dire mission. One thing is for sure: as bad as this day started, it's about to get a whole lot worse.
