Converging on the mysterious train, the survivors make their hasty getaway after the horrific caretaker attack and greet new faces while counting those lost. But with a wild landscape streaming past and no idea where they are headed, the question quickly becomes: who is driving?

ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in this exciting serial adventure.

This is the 7th episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by Carrie Harris.

You live. You love. You Die. Now RUN. ReMade is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take readers past the boundaries of time, space, and even death.



The ReMade serial begins a new twist as all the character lines are in one place. I was excited to see that we weren’t getting YET ANOTHER new character, but returning to Nevaeh.

This would have been all well and good if the story didn’t rehash everything we learned about her in a previous episode. It felt like a filler before the next installment (and who’s to say that that one won’t do the same thing).

There’s a lot of dealing going on in this episode. Facing their deaths, the recent attack from the caretakers, a lot to feel miserable about. Some of the teens take lash out in anger. Like Loki. Seriously needs to take a chill pill. Nevaeh handles him pretty well but he is just not taking things well.

Basically, I felt like nothing much happened. They’re all piled together but we don’t go anywhere in terms of the story. And the only thing keeping me hooked on this serial is the fact that none of my questions have been answered and I want to know from a completionist perspective. *sigh*

So hopefully next time the teens get off the train and DO something. Clearly something is going on but gods forbid we learn what that is before the very end of this serial.
