AS THE SCHISM BETWEEN THE TWO WARRING MILLENNIUM GROUP FACTIONS DEEPENS, FRANK DISCOVERS THE EXISTANCE OF YET ANOTHER PLAYER IN THE POWER STRUGGLE.
As Frank, gun in hand, approaches the car (see episode ‘Owls’), he orders the occupants to place their hands on top of their heads. The driver attempts to reason with Frank, insisting he is with the Group. Suddenly, the passenger turns and aims his gun at Frank. Both men fire. Frank dives behind the vehicle, taking cover. Neighbors react to the commotion, and shortly thereafter, police sirens sound in the distance. Frank fires several rounds into the car, striking the passenger. As the driver engages the engine and pulls away, Frank shoots out a back tire. Later, police find the car abandoned.
Meanwhile, while examining evidence pertaining to the Johnston murder, Lara Means discovers that Watts hid an infrared photograph. The cover-up also comes to the attention of the Elder, who demands an explanation. Watts tells the Elder that Johnston was involved in a plot to pit the Owls and the Roosters against each other. Watts spotted a possible lead within the infrared image, and certain it would determine the outcome of the discord within the Group, hid it from view until he could consult with the Old Man about its meaning. Later, members from both factions meet to discuss the crisis. The Elder decides not to reveal the results of carbon tests that conclusively date the piece of wood–possibily the crucifixioin cross–found in Johnston’s burned automobile until after Group members have settled their differences.
Catherine is approached by Jim Ford, an Aerotech worker. He reveals that Clear Knight and the company are part of something called Odessa. Meanwhile, Frank pays Knight a visit. While examining the watercolor hanging on her wall, Frank experiences internal visions of Nazi Germany.
That night, Frank receives a visit from Lara Means and the Old Man. Lara explains that, throughout history, the Group has had access to scientific breakthroughs withheld from the public. As a result, Johnston developed a theory about a tear in the fabric of the universe… one that would reach Earth in sixty years. Lara admits she believes the theory, but would not join the Owls because of her persistant apocalyptic visions (which cannot be explained through science). The Old Man then joins the discussion, explaining that a third party has been manipulating the Group in hopes of triggering its demise. Later, the Old Man tells Lara that in the waning days of World War II, Nazis began a secret project known as Odessa, in which high-ranking SS officers fled to countries south of the equator. One of these men, Rudolph Axmann, helped defeat their greatest enemy, communism, in the 1980s. Now Odessa has turned its attention towards the Millennium Group.
Meanwhile, Catherine discovers that Jim Ford is dead. Fearing for her safety, she runs from the Aerotech offices and makes her way to the parking lot, where she encounters Frank. He explains that Odessa had been monitoring his reluctance to join the Millennium Group, and hired Catherine, through Aerotech, in an effort to access him.
Gunsche brutally murders the Old Man in the basement of Frank’s yellow house. Devastated by the loss, Watts tells Frank and Lara he is ashamed at how he has treated them. He determines that the Group must now destroy Odessa. Later, as the Elder presides over the Old Man’s burial, the operation to obliterate Odessa is put in motion: Gunsche is killed in a car bomb explosion; Axmann’s house is destroyed in Paraguay; and the Aerotech company is raided and shut down for good.
The Elder assumes the title of the new Old Man. Later, he travels to the Old Man’s shack, where he unwraps a package shipped from Amann, Jordan. Inside is the remaining cross of the crucifixion.
