However, before they get anywhere, all children on the entire planet start chanting in unison. "We. We are. We are coming." They all chant in ''English'', too, and Rhys notices that their chanting is timed with British school commutes and lunch breaks. Jack calls UNIT for help, but Martha Jones is [[WrittenInAbsence on vacation]] and no one's cooperation very much.

Gwen takes a quick pregnancy test at the Hub, and Jack puts his hand on hers when he congratulates her. The automatic scanner immediately shows the bomb inside him. Gwen races out, Ianto [[BigDamnKiss passionately kisses Jack goodbye]], and Jack stays behind to let the bomb explode inside him -- [[TrashTheSet destroying the Hub completely]]. FridgeHorror abounds - all that cool alien tech they had is toast, Janet and all the Weevils in lock-up have probably been turned to puppy chow, along with the bodies in the morgue (maybe not Gray - [[Recap/TorchwoodS2E13ExitWounds we never saw exactly where he ended up]]; otherwise, [[{{Tearjerker}} Jack just lost his brother for good]]), and if Myfawny ever pays a visit to her old stomping grounds, all she'll find now is a burnt out hole in the ground. And while all of this is happening, all the children have once again begun to repeat the words, but their final repetition adds a new one.

PresentDay. Jack and Ianto investigate a death by alien parasite, and pass themselves off as the victim's nice gay neighbours in order to get close to the corpse. They get caught by Dr. Rupesh Patanjali, and when he realises that they're alien-hunters, he asks them to help them figure out why corpses have gone missing. Since they need a new doctor in Torchwood, Gwen, Ianto and Jack subtly lead him to the Hub to see if he'd be a good addition for the team.

PresentDay. Some children start standing eerily still and staring vacantly off into the distance, but the incident ends just as fast as it begins. Gwen notices this while withdrawing cash from an ATM machine and goes to the Hub to investigate, discovering it's happened all over the United Kingdom, blowing a kiss to a photo of dearly departed teammates and friends [[Recap/TorchwoodS2E13ExitWounds Owen and Tosh]] in her office workspace.
