Tim, having suddenly regained free will, has some errands to run. There are people he needs to talk to, and plans he needs to hammer together in order to take down Slash Hackman. Justice needs to be served, and Tim owes debts.
Other preparations are being made to attack Hackman; Emma has a favor to call in from Elder Dane, and Nele is determined to train her and Scott in self-defense.
Meanwhile, strange events are building up again in Troy. The Mayor of Troy has a new direction in the search for Slash Hackman, and someone is trying to track down Etsu.
