A withdrawn child has her suppressed anger taken advantage of by fairies at the bottom of her garden. Jack catches up with a very old friend who is investigating fairy sightings in the local wood. After having visited her, Torchwood is informed of a man's mysterious death in a prison cell, and Tosh uncovers a series of localized, extreme weather patterns. Nobody at the organization is sure of these events, or how they may be connected. Except for Jack, who has witnessed the creatures causing this, almost a century ago.
