Synopsis for "The Eternal Return, Part 8 of 12: The Shape of Things"
Shocked by Jenny's new appearance, Apollo immediately tells his daughter to revert back to her younger age. Jenny pulls a pack of cigarettes out of her back pocket, lights one, and explains to her father that she needed to grow up to handle the upcoming situations the Authority are about to encounter. Her aging is part of the plan.
Using the smoke from her cigarette, Jenny reveals the identity of the perpetrator causing the Authority's problems. She forms the smoke cloud into the shape of Henry Bendix's face. Apollo immediately recognizes Bendix and curses.
Bendix has a surveillance team outside their home listening in on the conversation. The two men relay to Bendix that he's been found out. Jenny detects the transmission to Bendix, and Apollo flies outside and incinerates the van and the men inside. Bendix initiates a swarm tactic on Apollo and Jenny's home. But when his men arrive, they don't find anyone inside. In fact, the carbon readings for the home suggest no one has lived there for 200 years. Bendix assures the men that their equipment is fine. Jenny Quantum is simply starting to live up to her name earlier than he expected. Either way, he state that he's fully prepared for every contingency.
Jenny and Apollo have escaped to the Bleed, and are on board the Carrier. Jenny reveals that the Washington D.C. mishap is all due to Bendix's machinations. Convinced of Jenny's story, Hawksmoor and the Engineer agree to gather the old team to take on Bendix.
Jenny visits Swift in Tibet to brief her on the news. Swift is hesitant to leave behind her pacifist life, but decides to rejoin the team. In Hong Kong, Apollo visits Midnighter in the middle of his disrupting an arms deal run by investment bankers. Midnighter kills the arms dealer, but before he can kill the investment bankers, Apollo incinerates them.
Midnighter immediately is on the offensive. He tells Apollo that their relationship is finished. Apollo tells Midnighter his arrival has nothing to do with them; it's about Bendix. But Midnighter doesn't believe it. He witnessed Jenny Sparks electrocute Bendix years ago. Bendix or no Bendix, Midnighter will not rejoin the Authority, as he knows what the future would be should the team reform. However, Jenny appears and convinces Midnighter to visit the Carrier, when she tells him that Bendix has been spying on her. Both Jenny and Apollo convinces Midnighter to have a "talk" on the Carrier.
Aboard the Carrier, the Authority sits down for a round-table discussion. Jenny asks to be debriefed about Henry Bendix. When the members of the team begin quibbling about their gathering, Jenny steps atop the table and declares that she will run things from now on, and stating it's time to find Bendix and remind him who he's messing with.
