The rift has been opened - and time is splintering all over the world. As events spiral out of control, the Torchwood team are faced with fragments of their past - and terrifying visions of their future. Can Captain Jack save the world?
Captain Jack Harkness
PC Andy Davidson
During Gwen's morning off with her boyfriend Rhys, they both see news reports of UFO sightings over the Taj Mahal, and an armed clash between CO19 officers and English civil war era soldiers. When she returns to the Hub, the team learns that they are caused by unstable rift activity after it was opened to rescue Tosh and Jack. Torchwood has its hands full; Tosh and Owen investigate cases of the Black Death in a local hospital, where Tosh sees a glimpse of her mother, while Jack and Gwen find a Roman soldier in a cell. In that time, Gwen sees a glimpse of Bilis Manger. Ianto sees Lisa, who tries to convince him to open the rift. During a heated argument, Jack fires Owen. While at a bar, Owen sees Diane, who tries to convince him to open the rift.
Jack and Gwen go to Bilis' clock shop, "A Stitch In Time", where they learn that Bilis can step between eras in time. When Jack leaves, he shows Gwen a vision where Rhys dies. Gwen rushes to Rhys and has him imprisoned in Torchwood for protection. However, Bilis causes a power cut in the Hub, releases Rhys, and kills him. Jack tells her that they cannot bring him back, but she knows the only hope of restoring him is to open the rift. All but Jack agree to this, and attempts to stop them by holding the team at gunpoint. When he insults them, they attack and kill him, scan his and the team's retinas and open the rift. After Jack revives himself, they discover that Bilis has manipulated the team to open the rift, in order to release Abaddon, a creature similar to the Beast, whose shadow kills anyone who touches it. This gives Jack an idea; he cannot die, so it can feed off his life. The shadow attacks Jack, but a blue light flows out of his chest and destroys Abaddon, killing Jack, seemingly for good.
The rift is now closed. Gwen is relieved to see Rhys alive. After several days, Jack is still dead, but is brought back to life after Gwen kisses him goodbye. The team welcome him back, later Jack announces to Gwen that the rift is now more volatile than ever. Gwen questions him: what would tempt him to open the rift to which Jack replies "the right kind of Doctor." As the rest of the team go for a coffee run, Jack sees the Doctor's severed hand glowing. He then hears the TARDIS materialising, and runs towards it. The rest of the team, however, believes someone or something has taken him.
