Axl wakes up to find Gaia's latest bit of odd behavior since her return: rearranging the furniture in the flat, per a dream she had. Oh, and she also quit her job at the hospital for no particular reason.
The morning gets even stranger as Gaia's father Bryn and ex-boyfriend Jacob arrive and tell her that they need to leave the premises immediately, revealing no details other than it's an "emergency."
The "emergency" arrives in the form of a very large man named Eggther, who demands to know the location of Gaia, who has since fled to her room.
Axl manages to knock out Eggther with a cricket bat, after which he, Bryn and Jacob find Gaia outside after managing to escape out her bedroom window.
They flee to Mike's bar, where Michele looks after the injured Gaia ... and Olaf reveals that Bryn is actually a 'midget giant' (giants smell like pie) and Jacob is a 'giant dwarf' (dwarves smell more gamey, like fear).
Meanwhile, Anders is depressed and has convinced Ty to join him on a day of drinking, funded by Anders' one last undeclined credit card. Anders mostly complains about Mike, whom he blames for all of their current financial and familial woes.
Back at his flat, Anders shows Ty the branch he took from Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life. Anders refers to it as the 'Stick of Uselessness,' as no one can figure out how to make it do anything.
After fleeing Mike's bar upon realizing they're in the presence of Gods, Bryn and Jacob commiserate at a diner ... where they're soon confronted by Mike, Axl and Olaf.
Bryn reveals that he's not Gaia's biological father but an assassin sent to kill her to prevent a prophecy that the birth of a child would bring a new Dark Age for both giants and dwarves. Bryn took pity on the infant Gaia and raised her as his own daughter.
Back at Mike's, the Goddesses are getting drunk and stoned with Gaia ... and theorizing that her recent strange behavior comes from her soon becoming a Goddess herself.
Bryn confirms the truth: Gaia is not actually 21 yet, and she is destined to become Frigg!
Unfortunately, Eggther has since taken Zeb hostage, demanding Gaia in exchange for his safe return.
Back at Mike's bar, Olaf shows Jacob the door after he suggests they just give Gaia to Eggther ...
... and Axl enlists the services of a God who's taken on a giant or two in his day: Derrick, aka Thor.
Meanwhile, Ty finds something vaguely familiar about the latest stop on his and Anders' bar crawl: everyone's drinking apple martinis ...
... which prompts a drunken memory of one of Ty's would-be lovers from Season One, Helen ... who is actually the goddess Idun, destined to find and fall in love with Bragi (Anders) over and over throughout eternity, a relationship that never ends well.
Ty is too late in getting Anders out of there -- he's already getting it on with Helen in the bathroom. And so their destinies collide once again.
Gaia reacts the way any at least semi-sensible young woman would.
