Kate accepts Director Bones' offer of a job as an independent contractor and heads off to speak to her ex-husband Peter. She discovers an empty house and a pool of blood - Peter and their son Ramsey have been kidnapped, and she calls in the DEO to help her. Meanwhile, Dylan Battles confronts reporter Ted Shoemaker, accidentally sending him through the teleporter to an unknown location. Peter and Ramsey have been kidnapped by Kate's biological father, a violent man that she's never had contact with since early childhood. He hands the two of them over to Phobia and Doctor Moon, who have an assignment to carry out with Ramsey, but can do as they please with Peter. Trying to track the kidnapper down, both Kate and Bones make the same discovery - her father is Walter Pratt, himself the son of Al Pratt, the Golden Age Atom.
