Liz Sherman awakens from a dream with a secret name of doom in her throat, a secret that Roger comes closest to understanding. Meanwhile, The Black Flame burns more darkly, lighting the way for his frog legion as they shuffle that much closer to their destiny-a destiny that will leave the Bureau broken, perhaps forever.

Roger, still on the field hunting down frogmen, is apparently killed by The Black Flame.
