With four episodes remaining this season, it would be way too easy to use an appropriate-yet-punny line like "In this week's episode of AMC and BBC America's NOS4A2, all roads lead to Christmasland," or something like that.

Her son Wayne (Jason David) is now with Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) and Bing (Olafur Darri Olafsson) and though an unexpected "savior" may be able to buy the boy time, the sands of the hourglass continue to flow. But with this week's "Cripple Creek," Manx is going to have his own issues to deal with as Bing has a few more questions he needs him to answer. And as you're about to see in the sneak preview following the promo images, Christmasland is still having issues with its "ConDead" bill so Millie (Mattea Conforti's) visits the House on the Hill for answers
