 PlotA woman is on the phone hen she loses signal, and See's someone in the middle of the road. She gets out carrying a baseball bat, just in case, and goes to check them out. A shadow runs past the screen, she goes back to her car and the keys are missing, the shadow that ran past, then comes back scratching on the roof, scaring the woman, then unlocks her car and goes into the car to get her. Torchwood are seen driving down the road, "What is that smell?" says Owen, "Grass" replies Gwen, "Its disgusting" says Owen. Torchwood come out to the countryside, and talk about missing people. They are parked next to a burger van, and Ianto gets them burgers, and Tosh doesn't have one, saying her friend got Hepititas from eating something from one of "them" places, this puts Jack off his burger. Jack talks about the last missing woman, and they suggest setting up camp outside, to Owens dislike. While sat around the camp table they talk about the last person they snogged, Tosh's was Owen, Owen's was Gwen, Gwen was Rhys, Ianto mentions Lisa, and everyone went quiet. They need fire wood and Owen and Gwen go off to get fire wood, and Owen starts talking about her sex life, they get into an embrace, and Gwen See's a shadow moving behind the tress so they split up to find it, and they lose it. When the find each other again they see a sheet on the floor covering a body. The body was stripped of flesh, and of the body organs making it hard for them to figure out how it died. While they are checking the body they hear the vehicle start up, they run back to the camp site, and the vehicle is running over their tents before driving away. They run a check on it, and find it parked, Tosh says she thinks it has all the traits of a Trap, which Jack agrees then suggests they go for a walk. So they go for the walk, checking to see if the "SUV" has moved as they walk. They come to a row of houses with an old looking tractor. They are being watched out of the window, Jack splits the group up, sending Tosh and Ianto to find the SUV, while the rest check out the local pub for anyone they can talk to. In the pub Owen pretends to order a pint, while Gwen checks the cash register seeing money asks where everyone is. They continue to look around, and Gwen finds a body, that has been half stripped of its flesh. They hear the door go, so Jack and Gwen run out to find out who it was. Gwen sound scared asks Jack to tell her whats going on. They check out a shed close by, then continue looking towards houses, where Gwen finds a puddle of blood, looks further and finds another body. Gwen asks Jack if he ever gets scared, to which Jack ignores it and suggests checking the other houses. We cut to Tosh and Ianto approaching an abandoned looking house, which has locked doors. They hear a woman scream, which Ianto says might have just been a fox or something, the says he will check round the back, Tosh goes the other way around the back and hears the scream again so draws her gun. She gets round the corner to and checks the back door, Ianto comes round the other corner, and she raises her fun at him. He stands upon a ledge and shouts that they should carry on up there, turns around and Tosh is missing, he tries shouting for her, but gets no reply, so draws his own gun and walks back to try looking for her. The shadow runs past the back of him and turns hearing it run past, he starts walking the shadow comes up behind him, and hits him knocking him to the floor. Jack and Gwen come out of a house, and there is one left to check, which is locked, it isn't locked well so Gwen is able to force it open, then is shot by a shot gun. Jack opens the door and shouts at the person to put their gun down, the person inside keeps saying sorry and they he thought she was "Him" come back to get him. Jack questions who, while Gwen starts to fade out, Owen See's Gwen and runs towards her, Jack gets her up and takes her into the house. Gwen looks to be in a lot of pain, and Owen helps her, gives her something for the pain and tells her she is lucky cause they are only on the surface. While Owen is getting out the pellets, Gwen asks if he misses being a doctor, but he says he still is a doctor, just doesn't have the patients, which was the bit he hated. Jack comes back into the room and asks Owen what can be taking Tosh and Ianto so long, Owen suggests giving them a chance cause the car could be under lock down. The kid that shot Gwen says they could be dead. Jack asks what happens here, the kid says he's not human, and goes on about his mom not expecting him back.
