Publisher summary Edit
When PC Andy Davidson arrests a young girl for shoplifting, he thinks it's going to be a routine case. That is, until he sees that she is carrying a gun. The girl is soaking wet, covered in mud, and the weapon is like nothing he's ever seen before. He knows that this is a case for Torchwood... The team discovers that the girl is called Freda, but can find out nothing else. Yet when she speaks, it's a strange mix of English and Icelandic, but with a Cardiff accent. While Jack and Ianto check out the girl's weapon and her blood sample at the Hub, Gwen and PC Andy take Freda to a safe house. But when Jack calls with the results—and Freda goes on the run—PC Andy finds his world turning upside down.

to be added
- This episode is set after TV: Exit Wounds and AUDIO: Lost Souls as Owen Harper and Toshiko Sato are no longer mentioned. There is nothing to indicate if it occurs before or after TV: Journey's End, but Ianto's involvement shows that it occurs prior to Series 3.
- Solar Flares are mentioned as in TV: The Parting of the Ways.
- The Sky Gypsy from TV: Out of Time
- Andy finally learns the true nature of Torchwood. This appears to be somewhat consistent with Series 3.
