When 11-12 demands to know where the Village is, Two gives his son control of the pills that will wake up M2 - 11-12's mother- and allow them to spend the day together. As the pair bond, a distraught 11-12 soon learns that he does exist outside of the Village and can never leave it. With M2 conscious, holes begin to open up in the Village reality, as Two takes a stroll and shares some social niceties with the wary Villagers. After a couple of disquieting encounters with 313 and 147, a disconcerted Six discovers that he has a vengeful double - 2x6 - who is intent on killing Two. Six seeks out Two to warn him of the danger, but Two denies his identity, claiming to be unTwo. When 2x6 tracks down unTwo and attempts to kill him, Six realises that this may be a ploy by Two to extend his control of him. Meanwhile 313 continues to have disturbing visions of the other world and is unsettled when she finds an access point to it in the desert.
