* KarmaHoudini: The three people dealing alien meat on the black market get [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Retconned]] because it's easier for Torchwood to just have them forget their actions and go on like they never got involved with shady dealings rather than try to keep them under lock and key.

The team investigates a meat company whose product seems to be extraterrestrial in origin. Jack makes the requisit bad innuendo puns about "eating alien meat". By complete coincidence, the meat is transported by... Rhys' company. Gwen doesn't like that at all, because inevitably, Rhys follows them and finally learns what Gwen does for a living.

The meat comes from a giant sentient SpaceWhale that regenerates infinitely. Sort of like Jack, only half asleep, immobile and very large. [[spoiler: ... So, sort of like Jack [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E3Gridlock near the end of his life]], really.]] Jack feels strong empathy for the beast and vows to save it. He also merrily flirts with Rhys' HollywoodHomely secretary, who looks like she hadn't been flirted with in years.
