Road trip! An old woman, Selma Hansen, getting killed by a meteorite sparks an Oracular reaction in Olaf; so he, Axl, Anders are off to Whangamaungamoa, in heartland New Zealand. But the goddesses have had a similar reaction to the event and Michele and Ingrid are also on the road, heading for the same place. Uh-oh…
It's there that the first face-to-face summit meeting of gods and goddesses takes place— outside the church where Selma's funeral is being held. May the best deity win, is the general consensus, as the two sides set about following any signs of the Frigg being here. But instead of finding the Frigg, they find Thor, god of War, in the form of Derrick, a goat farmer.
This is a problem for both sides, because they fear Thor's wrath (that hammer packs a wallop!). But it turns out that Thor is thrilled to find Odin/Axl is in his house and announces that their search is over because his daughter, Delphine, is, in fact, Frigg. This, in turn, is a problem for Axl because Delphine is definitely not the woman he had in mind as his soul mate.
Thor ousts the rest of the gods/goddesses so that he may spend time with Odin – and so that Axl can spend some "time" with Delphine as well. This leaves Anders free to kindle a relationship with Michele; and for Olaf and Ingrid, the goddess Oracle, to bond over vodka. Later on Axl braces for the wrath of Thor after he realizes that Delphine is not Frigg. As predicted, Thor does not take the news well and this sends Anders on a rescue mission, and Axl has to grow some Odin-like balls to make it off the farm safely.
Ty, meanwhile, has declined to go on the road trip, so he is in Auckland when a panicked Dawn rings – she's at Anders' apartment, feeding his fish, and Anders' fridge has died. Ty takes advantage of the opportunity to be the white knight for Dawn, but he soon learns that she only sees him as a friend…a gay friend … thanks to some lies from Anders. When Ty learns what Anders has done, he hits the roof and in doing so Dawn learns that not only is Ty not gay, but he also regards her as someone he could fall for in a big way. After some initial confusion, it seems that she feels the same way about him and they share a kiss in Anders' apartment.
The next morning finds Dawn and Ty, together in the apartment, after a night of love-making and of Ty watching her sleep, lest she feels the cold he emanates in his passion. When Dawn assures him that she doesn't feel the cold, Ty is the happiest man on the planet.
This is more than can be said for Anders' tropical fish, as they have succumbed to Ty's global-cooling characteristics. When Anders returns to his apartment after the failed Frigg hunt he finds that his fish have been replaced by a box of fish fingers – a message from Ty about telling lies.
