Episode 27 - A Taste of Things to Come  

Previously... Events in the Maunsworth Array have led to a resonance in the Standing-Point Field that has hurled Grace and Thomas back into the Heavenfield, but worse, has allowed a terrible creature out into the Array Hall. Stuart Nicks, together with three soldiers, finds himself chasing after the creature in a desperate attempt to prevent it escaping into the Array tunnels, and from there out into the world. Meanwhile, Thomas and Grace have found themselves on the edge of another Heavenfield reality, alone with the Angel, and the approaching armies.

They cannot allow any more creatures through, and can only dig in and await the inevitable onslaught...

Thomas and Grace travel back from the Heavenfield to the Array Chamber, but during the transition Thomas is surrounded by a host of Angelic creatures, who decide to lend their support against the Demons.

As they flee, Gutteridge apprehends them, chasing Thomas down into the Angel's tunnels. Thomas finds the Angel, who intervenes just as the Americans and Exiles launch their attacks.

Episode 24 - A Hidden Hope  

Previously... Speers and his forces have broken the cordon around the American Entry-Point, and have made their way to the British E.P. just in time to confront the Exile forces, newly-arrived from the destruction of their Fortress by the Demon army. The Demon Girl, manipulating all sides, tells Speers to send Gutteridge to the ruins around Maunsworth, for a chance to kill Thomas Sullivan, who she perceives as a threat to her plans.

Episode 23 - The First Flames  

Previously... The British forces at Maunsworth are concentrating upon building their fighting strength, in response, not only to the Exile cordon around their Entry-Point in the Field, but also towards the increasing political tensions with the Americans (whose policies are fuelled by Speers' paranoias). Grace and Commander James face painful times as they interrogate their prisoner Alex, who reveals some disturbing facts about his past, and also warns of a terrible danger approaching Maunsworth. Meanwhile, since returning from the Field, and his encounters with the Angel, Thomas Sullivan is finding himself increasingly assailed by visions and dreams which, while lending him a unique insight into the true nature of the Heavenfield, threaten to overwhelm him......

Meanwhile, Alex, having escaped the Exile fortress, has reached the Maunsworth Entry-Point, and finds himself a prisoner once again, this time to the British. Henschel, having helped Alex escape the fortress has opened it up to the attacking Demon army, sealing its destruction. The British expedition team fight their way back to the Entry-Point and escape to safety, but the Exile forces hold the Heavenfield-side of the Doorway now.

For the time-being it seems that all forces face an uneasy stalemate......

The American Speers is manipulating fears over the Field in order to fund the creation of an American Accelerator Array, and build an army. His paranoia over his actions towards the Maunsworth Base has led him to believe that it is the British, not the Exiles who are responsible for threats upon Heads of State. Speers is in danger of dragging the Americans into confrontation with the British. And all the while Alexi must endure his incarceration deep beneath the Exile Fortress. His mind is close to breaking, as he endures the visits by Dr. Henschel, who awakens ever-more terrifying nightmares within him...
