The latest episode of “Constantine” Season 1, Episode 11 “A Whole World Out There” took us to the other side and what lies beneath. Read on to learn more about it.

The episode kicked off with a bunch of college kids partying at a crypt. They are all drunk with an ancient Egyptian book of the occult at hand. They all attempted to perform a spell that can open the door to the other side. At some point, it looked like the spell worked until a girl screamed and some spirits were awaken from their reverie. So, did it work? Yes it did and all of them got transported to different and creepy worlds on the other side. It means that they were all separated and alone but there was a guy with them hiding.

Meanwhile, Constantine was having a walk down memory lane with a drink. It was until Manny appeared with a job at hand. He went to the University to visit his old friend who is only a professor at the school, Ritchie Simpson. Ritchie doesn’t like John around until he has no choice but to let him stay. It was because of the students who performed the spell has succumbed to the creepy guy who turns out to be a murderer from the other side. He just dropped dead with no obvious cause and they all knew he was trapped on the other side and someone killed him.

Constantine was also upset with Ritchie because he has stopped monitoring the algorithm of the rising darkness. If only he did, he would have picked up that his students have been catching glimpses of the killer from the other side with mirrors and other stuff that shows a reflection of oneself.

One of the girls told John and Ritchie what they did at the crypt. John had a feeling that Ritchie and his students are hiding something else. Manny showed up again for some action, but I think he’s there to kind of “recruit” Ritchie to fight against the Rising Darkness.

Constantine asked Ritchie why his students attempted to perform a ritual that could take them to the other side. Ritchie revealed the truth about his discovery of the dream-walking journal of a guy named Jacob Shaw that has mysteriously disappeared from his collection. The journal indicates that Shaw performed the ritual successfully, but things went wrong when he was already on the other side, trapping him there. So, there goes our mysterious killer.

Adam and Lily, the two of the four students who tried performing the ritual were worried because of their friends (who also performed the ritual with them) Miranda was missing. They went to their separate ways to look for Miranda. Unfortunately, they both got transported to different worlds on the other side; Adam saw Miranda dead and Lily saw the same thing as well.

Ritchie and Constantine got to Adam, but Jacob killed him. The next day, Adam and Miranda are dead and Ritchie blames himself. John tried to talk some sense into him, but he failed. So their next step is to save Lily. They went to Jacob’s house and surprisingly found Carter, Miranda and Adam still alive. Jacob then told him how he plans to hunt the three for fun and Miranda and Carter ran away while Adam stood up to him.

Constantine protected Ritchie and Lily. It was only until Lily checked her phone and saw Jacob and tried to escape the house, but she wasn’t able to. With that revelation, Constantine planned to go on the other side and Manny helped him. They were able to find Shaw who was very murderous. Ritchie tried to call him off but it didn’t help. Ritchie was able to save the day but wanted to stay behind but Constantine talked him out of it several times before he relents. They were able to save Lily and Ritchie found his new purpose and continued on with his life in the real world.
