Only in Haven can there be a trouble that involves a camera that does not record the smiles of its victims, but their last moment as a corporeal entity. In other words, the last impression the objects in the lens leave is a Peter Pan type shadow or, as Nathan, Audrey, Duke and Mara believe, a nuclear blast ashprint.
