Gustavo first met the Doctor when he was still a kid, while the Doctor was [[NoodleIncident fighting in the Spanish Civil War]]. While they reminisce and the Doctor plays barman for a bit, Ace checks out a nearby night club called the Rapture. Its glass wall shows the nearby island of Es Vedrà, where people throughout history claimed to have seen [=UFOs=] and angels. Two of those "angels", Gabriel and Jude, are working as the nightclub's [=DJs=] and promise an actual spiritual rapture.

* [[spoiler: TheEndOrIsIt]]
* EpiphanyTherapy: Invoked with Liam's friend Caitriona, who's suffering from depression. A lot of the characters imply that her depression stems from having no ''real'' problems in life (like war and poverty), and she makes an effort to become happier by the end of the episode. The Doctor, however, notes that her depression is clinical.

Gustavo first met the Doctor when he was still a kid, while the Doctor was [[NoodleIncident fighting in the Spanish Civil War]]. While they reminisce and the Doctor plays barman for a bit, Ace checks out a nearby night club called the Rapture. Its glass wall shows the nearby island of Es Vedrà, where people throughout history claimed to have seen [=UFOs=] and angels. Two of those "angels", Gabriel and Jude, are working as the night club's [=DJs=] and promise an actual spiritual rapture.

Ace really tries her best to have fun, but of course it's never that easy. First of all, she runs into her younger brother Liam, whom she's never heard of before. It turns out that their mom was cheating on their dad when Ace was just a few years old, and their dad ran off with Liam in a blind rage and never returned. The only reason Ace wasn't taken along is because she was in preschool when it happened. Ace is absolutely horrified to find out just how different her life could have been with just a few hours difference, and she yells at Liam to leave her alone.

To complicate matters, Gabriel and Jude turn out to be aliens who escaped from a devastating war on their home planet. Gabriel, suffering from PTSD after having been drafted against his will, completely lost his mind and found solace in his music. To help keep his brother somewhat sane, Jude decided to flee to Earth, use Gabriel's music to hypnotise the masses of priviledged bored teenagers, and ''send them off to war'' in their stead, hoping that it would somehow help set things right. Gustavo helped them out, because he was horrified by the carefree and self-destructive way of life that today's youth seemed to be leading -- without a war to fight for, without knowing what pain and hunger really are.
