From the GOLD the Series mailing list:
It is with a mixture of excitement and sadness that we here at GOLD announce the final episode of GOLD Season 1: Episode 6, And the Gods Will Have Their Way:
A nightmare about his accident makes Jon realize what is important, and he attempts to mend his relationship with Cissy. Meanwhile, Richard arrives at Jackson’s BBQ to confront his fractured team, and the British team join the BBQ with a secret plan to sabotage the Americans, unaware the Americans need no assistance. As the party escalates, representatives from the World Wide Tabletop Role Playing Game Consortium arrive bearing terrible news.
We’re excited because this is an awesome episode, which leads to a season ending we’re crazy about. But we’re sad because we’re now officially on hiatus. Season 1 is over – no more new GOLD episodes for a little while.
But we’ve lots of exciting stuff going on behind the scenes, and just beacuse the season is over doesn’t mean that we stop working. It’s more important now than ever that you spread the word and share GOLD with your friends. As we work on raising money and finding production support and sponsorships for Season 2, we need our viewership to continue to blossom. You can help us out further by becoming a fan of GOLD on Facebook and following GOLD on Twitter.
