Jack questions Owen about Gwen and Rhys, and he states that Rhys’ mother Brenda (Nerys Hughes) is with them. Tosh mentions that she saw Brenda with Gwen’s mother Mary in the garden. Tosh and Jack rush to the couple’s room, where Jack identifies Brenda as an alien and calls her an”ugly bitch”. After Brenda protests her innocence and Rhys punches Jack, Gwen states that Rhys’ mother is not the shapeshifter as Brenda wears a distinctive perfume. Torchwood reach the garden to find the Nostrovite, in Brenda’s image, with Mary. The alien holds Mary hostage, demanding that Gwen give her her child. Gwen walks towards them and as the Nostrovite releases Mary, Gwen reveals a hidden gun in her wedding bouquet and fires at the creature. Owen suggests using a piece of alien equipment called the singularity scalpel to destroy the alien fetus. He sends Gwen to her room and teaches Rhys how to use the scalpel; Owen cannot use it himself due to injuries sustained in his undead state. Gwen is approached by Jack and reveals to him that she would have married Rhys a long time ago if she had not met him. She leans in as he appears to be ready to kiss her but he reveals himself to be the Nostrovite. Owen enters, shooting the creature whilst Gwen exits with Rhys.
Rhys and Gwen find refuge in a barn and Rhys explains Owen’s plan to remove the fetus. As the Nostrovite launches an assault on the door of the barn, Rhys succeeds in destroying the fetus. The Nostrovite enters, again impersonating Rhys’ mother. She attacks Rhys, who attempts to protect himself with a chainsaw, which malfunctions. Jack arrives and kills the alien with a more powerful gun.
