By Dawn's Early Light[]

At home, Sheldon and Grace spend some quality time with one another. The two reminisce about the time they bumped into Elvis Presley. Sheldon confides in his wife how he is worried about his daughter Chloe, but his wife tells him to calm down and advises him that what he needs to do is find the right time to talk to her. The conversation eventually shifts to Brandon, and Sheldon tells Grace that their son is “not getting it” and probably never will regarding what it truly means to be a superhero. Grace tells him to give their son time, but Sheldon believes Brandon is too emotional and distracted to take on The Utopian mantle. 1 2 3 4 5

Later that day, Sheldon, Walter, Grace, and Brandon begin their evening dinner. A drunk Chloe storms through the door as her father, Sheldon, says grace. There’s a clear tension between Chloe and her father. Especially when Chloe talks about her latest photo shoot in a magazine. Sheldon disapproves of the attention she brings herself and states that Brandon tries to use his gift to better the world. The conversation inevitably turns into an argument, and Chloe states how much she regrets having Sheldon as her father. Her mother, Grace, demands that she apologize. Chloe does apologize but states that this will be the last dinner she will be coming to before storming out.

Some time later, Grace as Lady Liberty shows up to fight off against Blackstar.

Eventually, Blackstar frees himself from Walter's mind control and fights the other heroes once again. Blackstar starts to go nuclear, so Brandon super punches the villain to kill him.

There’s shock amongst the heroes and Sheldon tells his son that they do not kill. Brandon argues that Blackstar was about to take out half the state, along with his parents, but his father feels he took the easy way out and asks him to leave. Sheldon is dismayed that his son broke the Code.

Paper and Stone[]

Outside the Union Headquarters, the press is curious as to who the Union was fighting if it wasn’t the real Blackstar. Grace fields the answers to the journalists. There’s a single question that irks The Utopian due to a poll that claims 78% of Americans agree with Paragon’s execution of the supervillain.

In 1929, a young Sheldon prepares for his father’s funeral with Walter. Discussions turn to business, and Walter brings up how the board wants to shut everything down. Sheldon is furious, but Walter reminds him that their father is not around anymore. Sheldon sees a newspaper article that claims their “father ripped off his workers” which was written by journalist Grace Kennedy , who unbeknownst to him at the time, will go on to be his future wife. He confronts her about it in her workplace. She tells him that everything in the article is true. Sheldon gets angry about the headline, “The Death of Capitalism,” and he tells all the journalists that capitalism built their lives and asks how they are helping America. Sheldon tells Grace and the others that they should be ashamed of themselves for what they write and the people they hurt in the process.

Before the funeral, Grace tells her son that “he can do this.” It’s a glum ceremony, and Sheldon remembers the day he buried his own father all those years ago. He looks up at the sky, and he’s upset that Chloe didn’t come.

What's the Use?[]

Sheldon admits to his therapist that he thinks he’s at odds with the whole world. He cites that his marriage with Grace is strained, Chloe is out of control, and Brandon killed someone (to which 78% of the country agrees with it). The therapist asks him when the notion of “doing good” became important in his life. Sheldon talks about a few days before his father’s funeral. He sat there with his father’s whiskey and read every paragraph that Grace wrote in that damning article. Eventually deciding right there and then that he was going to reverse every sin of his father.

In the present, over on the family farm, Grace wants to show her husband Sheldon some photos from her latest heroic venture. But Sheldon doesn’t appear to be all that interested. He then reveals that he has sent Brandon to the autopsy of Blackstar’s clone as he needs to see it. His wife is annoyed that he’s made that decision without consulting her, but Sheldon wants Brandon to see the consequences of his actions. Grace feels he is punishing their son and reminds him that Brandon is also human.

In the present, Walter shows Sheldon and Grace the watch and they realize that it looks absolutely identical to his father’s watch. Walter believes that George sent the device with the clone of Blackstar, but they are not sure why he would do so.

In 1929, Sheldon and George visit Grace at work, right when she’s quitting her job at the newspaper company. Sheldon wants to talk to her about an opportunity they have for her. George asks Sheldon if he’s sure about bringing in Grace for help, but Sheldon is sure, claiming she was in the cellar in his visions. Sheldon tells Grace that he’s mounting an expedition, and he wants her to chronicle it.

Cover Her Face[]

Sheldon is having sex with Grace, but then he picks up an anomaly from Mars. A comet is heading towards Earth. Despite Grace telling him not to stop, Sheldon has to quickly depart to stop it from hitting the planet.

With Sheldon gone, Grace looks at old newspaper clippings of Skyfox headlines before looking at a photo of her and the family, and she smiles.

In 1929 and on the boat, Grace notices that Sheldon is talking to himself and asks George about it, but he brushes it off. Later on in their adventure, the ship begins to struggle, so they have to dig deep to keep it going.

In the present, Grace notices that Brandon is in a possible romance with Ruby again. Brandon brings up how since Blackstar, everyone else in the field is tense, and he cannot stay on this farm anymore. He then brings up what’s good about setting an example if nobody follows it. His mother reminds him that it’s because it is the “right thing”.

Meanwhile, superhero Janna is trying to help Austin, who has been severely hurt. Grace has to intervene, but Jay wants to get revenge. Grace tells him it’s about “doing the right thing”, but Jay disagrees and states it’s about not getting killed.

Back in 1929, Grace snoops around and finds Sheldon’s drawings on the ship. She sees the map and a drawing of his father looking injured. Walter and Sheldon find her looking, and Walter is concerned about the drawings. He also finds the watch that they buried their father with.This leads Walter to get increasingly irritated. But they cannot argue for long, as they rescue a man in the sea, who turns out to be a doctor. The man talks about a storm that suddenly comes from nowhere and wonders why it let him leave. He then warns the others that the storm is here. Later on, Grace then states that Sheldon is talking to his father. They try to move Sheldon so they can navigate the boat, but he continues to fight.

In the present, Grace heads to a crime scene while on patrol. She can hear Janna struggling. Eventually, she finds Janna, who struggles to breathe, and upon closer inspection, Grace realizes that the young hero is dying. She claims Baryon did this to her, but she didn’t break the Code. An angry Grace approaches the supervillain to fight him. Eventually, she gets him to the ground and punches him repeatedly. Afterwards, she tells the cops to call the coroner because they’ve lost another superhero.

At home, Sheldon apologizes to Grace for taking so long to save the planet from the comet. He tells her it isn’t as easy as it used to be and he might need Brandon next time. Grace explains she ran into Janna Croft while on patrol and that she is dead now. This in turn brings an uneasy silence between them.

In 1929, Sheldon points his gun at everyone to stop them from changing course. He can hear his father tell him not to let them take away his destiny. Grace tells Sheldon that what he’s hearing doesn’t matter, as it’s real to him. His father tells him to kill them before it is too late. Grace keeps on trying to persuade Sheldon to put the gun down, and he finally does.

Suddenly, the skies clear, and the sun comes out. Sheldon looks at his father’s watch, and it ticks loudly. The noise is loud for everyone, and they cover their ears. The watch eventually cracks on 02:18.

Later, Grace alerts Sheldon of an island ahead of them. Everyone is in complete shock as they have surprisingly made it through the storm, and an island appeared in turn.

Omnes Pro Uno[]

In the present, Walter offers to go into the mind of a clone of Blackstar, but there’s a risk that he could die. Grace believes Raikou, who is Walter’s daughter, can help, but Sheldon doesn’t want a contract killer in their group helping. Grace pushes back and asks Walter to find her.

As for Grace and Sheldon, they argue about the Code. Grace believes it is time for change and thinks Sheldon is trying to control everything. She states the young kids feel unheard on something that does not make sense anymore.

In 1929, while on the island, Sheldon and the crew make their way through the forest of the island. Sheldon sees a pattern on a tree that’s similar to his drawings. After exploring more, they see some foggy mountains in the distance. Walter is scared and wants everyone to go back to the ship. Suddenly, an explosion occurs in front of them, and a tree shoots up to stop them. Sheldon then mentions to everyone else that the island will not let them leave.

Tensions rise, and Walter continues to proclaim that he wants to leave, so Sheldon tells him to go. Grace tells him they have no choice but to keep ongoing.

As they continue to make their way towards the mountains, they are hit by a sandstorm, and they have to stick together to fight it. When they reach safety, the brothers keep on arguing. Walter sobs and blames the death of their father on Sheldon. He then states they should have never expanded the company. Sheldon tries to calm him down, but he wants to keep moving.

In 1929, the group finally reaches an enclave, but there does not appear to be a way through.t Sheldon refuses to believe it. As Walter gets angry, they are suddenly shrouded by a big wall above them, and they are locked in. Richard gets angry and blames Sheldon for this, and fights him. Grace sees two skeletons that look like they have killed each other. She believes that the island is testing them because ever since they’ve gotten off the boat, all they’ve done is fight. She also notices the skeletons are a group of six, just like they are. Sheldon states the island wants them to get through adversity, so there must be a way out of this.

When Sheldon and George touch the wall, white and purple patterns appear before them. The rest of the crew including Grace, touch the wall together. However, when Walter touches the wall, nothing happens. Grace tells Sheldon that they need to unify as brothers for it to work fully. The brothers unite, and the wall begins to open, showing a beam of light as it does. They then walk through the gap that has opened up. Out of nowhere, Walter and Sheldon’s father appears, but he does not look menacing this time, and it’s not part of Sheldon’s imagination because Walter can see him too. Their father tells them that they have completed the ordeal while suffering unthinkable losses and prevailing. Other people appear as well and echo Chester’s sentiments and call the group “worthy”.

Suddenly, there’s a high-energy blast, and the captain who is on the ship looks concerned with his crewmates. However, as they look in the distance, they see the superheroes in the sky.

How It All Ends[]

While Walter continues to struggle inside the Blackstar clone’s mind, when suddenly he sees George sitting down and smoking a cigarette slowly. When George stands up, he reveals himself in his full superhero form. The two men end up fighting and out in the real world, Walter’s heart rate is going into critical condition as he is punched badly by George inside his mind, so Grace asks if he can enter the clone’s mind to help.

Grace enters, but George starts torturing Walter’s mind. However, Walter and Grace end up out of the clone’s mind anyway. They then tell Fitz that Skyfox was in there.

Meanwhile, Grace knows Skyfox gave Walter a message, which is why he let them go. Walter eventually shows her what it was by transferring it into her mind. She then sees visions of Sheldon and Brandon dead, with Skyfox standing over them victorious. Walter proceeds to explain that George cloned Blackstar, knowing that it would trouble the Union. He’s going after all of them. Grace vows that no one will hurt her family, and they will bring him to justice.

In 1929, the new superheroes sit around a table, and Grace wonders why they received these powers. Sheldon feels they can do a lot of good with them, but he doesn’t want to govern or kill. George makes a joke about it, but Sheldon is serious, hailing their amazing gifts.
