The happy family sang along to upbeat disco/funk song Boogie Shoes by KC and the Sunshine Band and were shown enjoying their family getaway in the woods.

Wen was working on his butterfly project when he noticed a man deep in the forest and looked at him worriedly with a furrowed brow.

Andrew and Eric then heard a knock on the cabin door and looked over their shoulders.

A tattooed hand was shown reaching down as Wen’s fingers reached up to shake hands with Dave’s character.

Wen was then shown with Andrew and Eric arming themselves after seeing strangers approaching from the forest.

“There’s a woman carrying what looks like a pickaxe with a chain and a hammer head,” Eric said after peeking out the window.

The knocking continued as the family looked horrified and Wen was shown being followed home.

“You see, the four of us have very important work to do.” In fact, it might be the most important job in the history of the world,” Leonard said in a voiceover.

Eric and Andrew attempted to barricade the cabin and armed themselves, but were easily subdued by Leonard and his companions Adrian, played by Nikki Amuka-Bird, Sabrina, played by Abby Quinn, and Redmond, played by Rupert.

Leonard was flanked by Sabrina, Adrian and Redmond as he addressed their captors after the home invasion.

“We were called and we are united by a common vision that has now become a commandment we cannot ignore,” Leonard told the engaged Eric and Andrew.

“The four of us are here to prevent the apocalypse. Your family was chosen to make a terrible decision,” he continued.

“If you fail to choose, the world will end,” Leonard said as the screen went dark.
