And Dr. Barker is trying to get all the info she can from Billy about how it was he came back to life. He tells her about the accelerator, and the blue glow. There fact-finding chat is interrupted when a Lambda helicopter touches down in Port Moore.
Well, the helicopter isn't bringing good tidings. Dr. Clark of Lambda, Dr. Barker's boss, says that their island literally disappeared. Lambda security forces have come to investigate the situation. But they're not letting Billy in on any of the fun.
Father Dan has sought the help of Sophia to clean up a dead body. She agrees a little too eagerly. She tries to pull some weird hand thing on him, but is distracted when a townie interrupts. She skeedadles.
After Billy brings in his hostage, a standoff ensues. Billy threatens to blow the kid's back off his body unless the other goons lower their weapons. Then Daphne steps forward. She's the CEO of Lambda. And she's going to solve Port Moore's ghost problem.
And Daphne wants to restart the accelerator, the consequences be damned. She's got deep pockets and a sweet tooth for ghosts. Of course, Barker knows what might happen, and she's going to do what she can to stop the project from repeating itself.
She ends up trapping Dr. Clark in a vestibule so that he can't interfere with her countermeasures. Oh, she's quick. It's not long before a ghost arrives and scares the crap out of him. Well actually it's vomit.
Meanwhile, Father Dan is on the hunt for Paolo. He went missing after he helped restart Sophia's generator…and never came back. Sophia invites Dan into her home for some tea and sympathy, but ends up taking his hand and knocking him out instead.
And Daphne has visited Roman looking for some insight into the ghost realm. When he leaves her alone, Daphne is visited by a ghost who connects her to her past. Could this be the reason why Daphne wants to restart the accelerator and find alternate dimensions? To defeat death?
Daphne brings Roman back to Lambda to show him the crown jewel in their treasure chest: that egg-like thing in the basement of Father Dan's church. It's actually a piece of meteor that landed in Port Moore and killed everyone way back when. It opened a rift in spacetime. Lambda wants to figure out how to exploit it. And in Roman's hands, they might be able to do just that.
Thinking that the Lambda ops have something to do with the disappearance of Paolo and other townies, a squad of vigilantes led by Norm start waving guns around the lab's property. The standoff stands down when the opposing sides see the fire burning in the distance. They must work together to put it out, or else it could ravage the entirety of Port Moore.
