65: Expect the UnexpectedAlbum 65: Expect the Unexpected

There’s never a dull moment in the town of Odyssey! From a mysterious police investigation to an internship at a funeral home, every situation leads to unexpected results. When Zoe Grant and Olivia Parker start a new talk show, they reluctantly choose Jay Smouse as their first guest. But his talent of stuffing his mouth with jelly beans leads to frantic and frightening consequences. An impromptu Parker family picnic turns into an unusual opportunity for David as he decides to go to extreme lengths to prove a point to his kids about initiative. And Buck and the Meltsners face a sudden dilemma when a social worker questions Eugene and Katrina’s role as Buck’s guardians. Don’t miss out on a single shock, twist, or turn as the folks in Odyssey learn about fame, friendship, family, and more in these six exciting stories.

After years of searching for his true identity, Buck Oliver may finally get some answers. But along with clues about his family, he also is subjected to the dangers of his past. Buck’s old mentor Mr. Skint arrives in town with an offer that would take Buck away from Odyssey for good. Elsewhere, Connie feels unappreciated when Jules starts looking up to new roommate Jillian more than her own sister. And the crew at B-TV chart a course deep into the ocean to learn more about the concept of the Trinity. Dramatic conclusions and fresh beginnings abound in these six entertaining and inspiring adventures in Odyssey!
