Abe awakens on 2nd September, 3 days after the vision with Antares. Abe appears to no longer be Gifted. Eric comes to talk to him and fill him in on what's been happening. When they go to investigate the crash site they are approached by Jurgan Vaas, who apparently knows them from the future. They go to the Empire State building where they meet Derren and Merciful Hands. Kung-fu action and cryptic comments fly around the place then the future people vanish.
Back at the ship they notice a large dimensional instability at Meggido.
