A night off duty for some of the counselors provides welcome opportunities for romance, but could end on a darker note in “Mix Tape,” an all-new episode of “Dead of Summer,” airing TUESDAY, JULY 12 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT), on Freeform.
The summer is off to a rough start for the counselors at Camp Stillwater and a night away in town is a much-needed break. Both Cricket and Jesse see the free time as an opportunity to make headway with their crushes, but when one of them goes a little too far the evening takes a dangerous turn. Stuck covering the campers while the rest are in town, Blair and Joel use movie night as a way to make their own romantic overtures.
Meanwhile, flashbacks show why Cricket’s plans to attract Alex’s attention include insulting graffiti.
