ABC Family has provided The Continuum a description and five images from "The Cursed Tuba Contingency," the Monday, July 28 episode of The Middleman.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"A cursed tuba and its original owner from the Titanic are on the loose through out the city with The Middleman and Wendy hot on their trails. The two heroes must reach the brass instrument and the heartless survivor before it is played out loud, causing all those in ear shot to drown in the icy waters of the North Atlantic. But where might one find such a cursed tuba? Why, at a Titanic-themed yacht party of course! So dressed in their 1920šs finest, The Middleman and Wendy hop on the boat and set off to destroy the tuba for good. But when Lacey and Noser show up to the event, can the dynamic duo stay focused enough to get the job done?

"Meanwhile, The Middleman and Lacey take their relationship to the next step by going out on a date."
