Overview

November 24th, 1859 London.
Lord Minnbrough introduces Langdon Everett Caul to Edward Musgrove Sunborne.  They are at the Minnbrough Baywater House to unroll a mummy from Thebes.

Minnbrough announces he is letting Adam Glaren do the unrolling.  As he removes the wraps from the face her eyes open.

Balikpapan Indonesia March 2006

The big guy is making arrangements for a twenty thousand square foot property.

As he waits for a taxi he sees a newspaper’s headline, “MONSTER CLEAN-UP IN FULL SWING IN NEBRASKA” and a photo of Abe Sapien and Captain Daimio.

Today in Colorado Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman bury their friend Roger on a mountain under an assumed name.  Abe reveals that he learned things back in Rhode Island about himself before he actually was himself.  Liz tells him he doesn’t sound crazy to her as she has a vision of a bearded Asian man.

Daimio is receiving acupuncture from a torturer.  He hallucinates that a weird little monkey in a preservation jar comes alive and has a gun.  Then Daimio is back with his unit with six sticks stuck through his torso.  Daimio wakes up and the torturer announces he is done as he wipes blood off a machete.  Daimio’s torso is bleeding and wrapped in gauze.

We see a tropical area that has some very strange alien looking wildlife.  Then a robot that looks like an old-fashioned deep-sea diving suit feeds the monkey-leopard-cat like creature some leaves.

Back at Colorado at the B.P.R.D. headquarters, Johann Kraus is taking a fork truck down to the fourth sub-basement to investigate some materials that were not damaged in the fire.  Johann asked Abe to help but he politely refused.  Johann told Abe he had received a delivery.

Kate invites Liz to have tea.

Abe opens his package.  It is an old cigar holder with the initials L.E.C engraved on it.  Inside are three cigars and a map with Balikpapan circled.
