Meanwhile at Rendelsham, Lorenzo shows Angie that they have a miniature version of the Caged Baby Universe that used to power The Carrier. He wants her to use it to make the working Door they have safe and secure.
In The Bleed, Swift flies around trying to figure out which Earth is hers. But she finds that there are too many possibilities.
Angie makes contact with the Caged Baby Universe and finds out it was made by the same creators of The Carrier. The Baby Universe tells Angie that it was found by The Establishment in the 1950's by Professor Q and they've held it captive ever since. It asks Angie to help it.

Elsewhere, Midnighter is still dumbfounded by the sight of a huge dragon which has appeared before him while attempting to cross a lake at the Scottish Borders. He uses a grapple line from the boat to climb onto the dragon. He then holds on as the dragon flies over the island. He then breaks its neck and falls into the lush forest below. In the forest, he observes a group of refugees being approached by a being calling itself The Green Man. It promises to heal them all but then uses its powers to control the surrounding woods to kill the refugees. Needless to say, Midnighter is not happy about this.
