Storyline

After having to leave 667 Dark Avenue, the Baudelaires are sent to a village called VFD that has too many unnecessary rules. Jacques and the Librarian follow. Unfortunately so does Count Olaf. He disguises himself as Detective Dupin, and Esme as Officer Luciana. The Baudelaires live with the Handyman, Hector. When the crows roost in the Nevermore Tree, they leave a couplet poem from Isadora. They do everyone else's chores as a cover for searching for Isadora and Duncan. Jacques and Count Olaf go head to head. Written by Fran Waite

Quotes

[first lines]
Lemony Snicket: [narrating] If the story of the Baudelaire orphans was is a car trip, it would be unpleasant, uncomfortable, and interminably long.
Arthur Poe: [cut to Arthur's car] I must say, this car trip has been interminably long. Who knew the hinterlands were so far away.
