Episode Summary

EDIT
While Grave is lost in a trance staring at a group photo of the friends from his childhood, Harry is driving down the highway with the full realization that the other higher-ups in Millennion have seized Harry's bank accounts and are now trying to kill him. However, Harry remains comforted by Sherry’s body in the passenger seat and the understanding that Harry, himself, has become Millennion. Grave traverses slowly down the street towards his old home in the slums, growing more tired and shattering more severely with each step. Harry, who has located one of the laboratories where OrgMen are created, activates his soldiers to take back Millennion. Meanwhile, Biscoe is examining the new anti-OrgMen bullets which the other Millennion members are distributing to form a mass-scale strike force against the bio-engineered creatures. Harry is seen attending a funeral for Sherry, at which Harry is the sole attendee. Paralleled with images of Harry comforting Sherry, we see Millennion agents taking down the many OrgMan troops around the city. Mika appears at Millennion HQ’s doorstep, obviously looking for Grave but instead finding a group of Millennion agents. But before they try to take her down, Biscoe steps out and intervenes, recognizing her as Big Daddy’s heir. Biscoe tells Mika that, since Harry has become the hunted, she is now free. Mika demands to know what this freedom even means anymore being that so many people had to for it. Biscoe, being that he was a friend of Big Daddy, asks if there’s anything he can do for her. Mika tells them to look for Brandon Heat. Harry, pulling back into the city, bears witness to an OrgMan being gunned down in the street. The agent who shot it recognizes the man in the car as Harry, and the agents scramble to catch him as he makes his getaway. As Harry is forced into the slums of the city, he reflects on where it was in his life that he went wrong, and just when he happens upon the memory of killing Brandon Heat, Bunji’s cat wanders in front of the car and Harry spins the wheel to avoid it, slamming straight into an alley wall. As the two men travel inexorably toward each other, their minds float back to their youth. Harry is walking with Brandon down the street, with Harry venting his aggravation about a race that just concluded, the two men find Maria being physically assaulted under a bridge by a group of thugs. A this point in time, neither man has met Maria, but Harry stops Brandon before he runs off to save her, reminding Brandon that in this town the luck ones die first. Brandon nods in agreement, and then runs off to fight them anyway. As Harry watches on, Brandon beats the crap out of the gang members, and afterward, Maria’s eyes meet with Brandon’s as they connect for the first time in their lives. The next day Harry is talking up to his friends about how Brandon has love at first sight, but before they can convince Brandon to ask her out, Maria appears in the doorway to their clubhouse with a pie she baked to thank Brandon. As Maria and Brandon walk down the street, Maria attempts light conversation while Harry and the gang follow in the shadows. Following this is a montage of Brandon, Harry and company as teenagers, scraping out a meager living by theft. And, as Harry and Brandon split up a hot dog on the beach, Harry suggests that Brandon go out and make an honest living if he ever wants to be with Maria. Harry says he’s happy with the way life is now, that he’s free. Brandon doesn’t want to leave that life, either. As the gang shares a drink in their clubhouse, Harry heads off to the bathroom for a smoke only to find his older self staring back at him from the other side of the mirror. The older Harry bursts out of the bathroom to find his younger self running down the street with the rest of his friends. As the older Harry tries to follow, he awakens from the unconscious state he was knocked into by the car crash. Harry looks out the window only to see a younger Brandon Heat replaced by the visage of Beyond the Grave. Harry exits the car and faces Grave, who then draws his gun. Grave pulls the trigger only to find that his clip is empty. The two men burst into laughter.moreless
