Summary

In a 1980s setting, Wanda and Vision struggle to stop Tommy and Billy from crying. Agnes offers to help look after the boys, but Vision questions her behavior. He and Wanda are interrupted when Tommy and Billy suddenly age-up to 5 years old. When a dog appears at their house, the boys ask to keep it and Agnes suggests the name Sparky. Wanda almost reveals her abilities to Agnes, concerning Vision, while the boys age-up again to 10 years old. At work, Vision reads an email from S.W.O.R.D. that reveals the situation in Westview. He manages to break through to a real Westview resident and discovers that Wanda is controlling the town. S.W.O.R.D. sends a drone from the 1980s into Westview and attempt to kill Wanda on Hayward’s orders. She emerges from the static field with the drone and warns Hayward to leave her alone. After Sparky unexpectedly dies, Vision confronts Wanda about her actions. They are interrupted again when Pietro arrives; watching the broadcast, Darcy notes that Pietro has been “recast”.

Summary

As The Rocinante finds itself surrounded by Free Navy ships, Drummer moves against Karal to save it from destruction; she loses members of her crew in protest, and Inaros executes Drummer’s associate in retaliation. On Chetzemoka, Naomi breaks a pressure valve, putting the ship into a spin to prevent docking. As Alex attempts a docking maneuver with the Razorback anyway, Naomi flees Chetzemoka in her suit and attempts to warn them off; Bobbie rescues Naomi before her life support gives out, but Alex dies from a stroke during the encounter. The Rocinante’s crew reunites on Luna, where Amos tricks Holden into giving Clarissa safe refuge and Bobbie joins the newly-elected Avasarala’s team, as Chrisjen signals she intends to use the Rocinante’s crew as a role model for winning the war against Inaros. Free Navy ships, aided by Medina Station and Martian warships previously believed missing in action, attack and destroy Earth’s garrison at the Ring. As the MCRN Barkeith transits the second gate en route to Laconia, a world beyond one of the gates, the entities that destroyed the Ring Builders begin to awaken and devour the ship, while an alien superstructure orbiting Laconia suddenly blooms with the protomolecule.
