We pick up right where we left off, with Gaia finding all this Goddess business to be utter rubbish. Still stoned and drunk after a day with the Goddesses, she mocks the world revealed by Bryn and Axl.
Back at the flat, Derrick has arrived to deal with Eggther -- and he doesn't take to being in the company of Bryn, a "sneaky tiny giant."
Meanwhile, Anders and Helen finally properly introduce themselves to each other after their little bathroom tryst. Ty is already bored with it all, though so far this latest incarnation of the infamous Bragi/Idun romance seems to be going splendidly.
Gaia has fled the flat and seeks counsel with Mike, who tells her that Axl and Bryn haven't lost their minds: all this Gods and Goddesses stuff is true.
Mike confirms that Gaia is destined to become Frigg to the Goddesses, who take their new colleague away for a round of Goddess talk.
When Axl, Derrick and Bryn (who have called an uneasy truce) discover that Gaia has fled the coop once again, Axl gets a phone call ...
... from Eggther, who once again demands Gaia in exchange for his hostage, Zeb. Axl manages to stall him somewhat by claiming there's a problem with procuring the roasted chicken the giant has also requested.
Meanwhile, the Goddesses work their Goddess charms on Gaia, happy to have the future Frigg in their midst. Not surprisingly, Gaia's having trouble getting her head around all this.
Back at Mike's bar, Ty marvels at how well Anders is treating Helen ... and Olaf recommends he talk to her about her specialty: apples.
Anders is ejected from the bar after he suggests they just let Eggther kill Zeb rather than hand over Gaia. Ty follows him and Helen, as he's too drunk to be of much use in this latest crisis.
After the men and Gaia go to the woods to confront Eggther, Ingrid tells Michele about The Stick, the branch from Yggdrasil that gave Michele temporary healing powers after she touched it. Ingrid says the branch contains a feminine power to give life, which is why the men haven't been able to get it to 'work.'
Michele then breaks into Anders' apartment and puts The Stick into its rightful hands.
Axl attempts to reason with Eggther, telling him that the new Dark Age for giants that's prophesied to commence with the birth of Gaia won't happen under his command as Odin. Eggther is unconvinced, claiming there's no way such a "magical fluffy bunny world" could exist.
When Derrick charges Eggther, he makes a run for it, though the giant's extreme height proves to be a disadvantage in the woods as a low branch (well, low for him) lays him flat.
Derrick is kept from killing the giant by Axl, who pulls rank as Odin. Thor obeys his Lord.
Eggther takes advantage of the scuffle with Derrick to get the upperhand, preparing to kill Gaia with a mighty blow to the head ...
... though he's talked down by Zeb (and the roasted chicken), who tells the giant to defy the violence of the old Norse legends and "Rise above it, man."
Eggther agrees to deliver Axl's message of peace to the other giants and says farewell to his "little buddy," Zeb. Zeb claims he was always in control of his hostage situation via "reverse Stockholm Syndrome."
Meanwhile, Ty's still hanging out with Anders and Helen, who tells him that apples are "what keeps the Gods being Gods." An interesting development in Ty's search for how to safely dispense with his God spirit.
Injured in the scuffle with Derrick, Mike finds his wounds quickly healed by Michele's special touch ... courtesy, unbeknownst to him, of The Stick.
The hostage crisis now ended, Gaia can now go back to this whole becoming-a-Goddess thing, which doesn't sit too well with her ... particularly since it appears that she doesn't really have her own say in any of it. She tells Axl she needs some time to sort all of this out ...
... and gets about five steps away before she's nabbed by hooded figures, who speed her off in a van. What a day!
