A teaser for the episode, which was filmed earlier this year, shares: "As the owners of Karras Games gather for a murder mystery weekend, the immersive experience takes a puzzling twist when a killer strikes for real. The police’s detective skills are put to the test as they are forced to solve this case on their own."
