Even after nearly being killed by the insane son of The Mist, Jack returns to Opal and puts together a practical costume to take to the skys as Starman. But when he goes off to fight the Mist's minions, he's ambushed by his daughter who allows him to escape. He runs to his father's hospital room and gets the number of a storage facility where a prototype version of the star rod is held.
Meanwhile, Shade and the Mist strike a deal. Shade kidnaps Ted Knight and Mist calls Jack to negotiate the release of his father.
