Synopsis:
Jeri sneaks into Banglethwaite HQ and finds out why Banglethwaite had the Post Bros house bugged; it turns out that he was using the Muse Opal's recurative abilites to try and make the Post Brothers less antisocial. When Ron pulls it out, it heals Banglethwaite's nose instantly. He tell him, as Russ appears that he set the demon there to kill them and then resurrect them with the Opal. The Opal cures Russ of his demon infection as The Boys toss the Opal away to mangle Banglethwaite, it breaks open revealing a baby Chronovore. Ron and Russ shift out, as does Jeri when she sees whats coming over the video screens. She finds them in a bar, where she explains that they could use the shell to trap it and sell it for its curative abilites. They return to the HQ to find it very much larger than they left it. The Post Bros refuse to attack it or enter the building to retrieve the shell. Ron and Jeri head back to her place and Russ heads to a dimension of living light beams to secure the services of Sneaky-Feet Brian, a sentient light beam. Russ secures his services by catching his sister in a jar.
