Finn manages to free himself from a Dream Parasite's grasp after noticing his \"backpack's\" strange behavior, and he realizes that the whole thing was a hallucination. Finn has passed away naturally and is now seen amongst various older characters in a cave, which leads to the entrance to the Land of the Dead. Upon realizing he is dead, Finn excitedly rushes through the gate (once again not listening to the Gate Guardian) knowing he can finally be with Jake again. He believes he has spotted Jake, only to unexpectedly find Mr. Fox. Mr. Fox explains that he is Finn's assigned guide to the Dead World, but it is evident that Finn is dead-set on finding Jake. Mr. Fox informs Finn that he can appear as any past version of himself, whether it be a different age, past life, or temporary transformation. After briefly transforming into different versions and past incarnations (including Shoko) Finn decides to go with his \"recognizable\" teenage self. After Finn demands to meet New Death at his castle, the two meet Tiffany, who is now one of the guards working for New Death. After taking a tour of the castle (and knocking Tiffany out cold), Finn finds New Death messing around in his throne room. New Death is completely different from his predecessor, reckless and not to be reasoned with. His angsty teenage attitude causes him to get frustrated at even minor inconveniences, which makes him threaten Finn and Tiffany's second death. However, when he hears Finn say he'll do whatever it takes to reach the 50th dead world, New Death gains a sinister grin, then surprisingly spares him and kicks him out. Because Finn's interference nearly had him sliced into nothing, Tiffany believes that they're enemies again. Finn apologizes and reminds him of their bonds with Jake, only to betray his trust and steal his undertaker pipe.
Finn and Jake challenge New Death with the Kiss of Life, and manage to strike him down. As they are trying to figure out how to actually use the kiss, New Death gets back up and starts charging. With quick thinking, Finn uses his note from Margaret (reading \"Hold Still\") as a majestic talisman, trapping him. New Death then reveals he was manipulated into striking Death down and becoming \"chained to his stuff\" by The Lich, who gained possession of him by becoming his right hand man (literally). He begins to burn the talisman with an incantation. The two fight over who will stop him, as they are both willing to take on Death's role in sacrifice for their friend. Right as Mr. Fox arrives, The Lich destroys the talisman and charges. Mr. Fox manages to activate the Kiss of Life just in time, killing New Death and taking his place. The Lich's hand is all that's left, and he attempts to take control of Mr. Fox as well. Jake promptly crushes him and throws him out into the vastness of the Land of the Dead. He and Finn say goodbye to Joshua, Margaret, Jermaine, and Tiffany, and Finn then opens up to Jake on how he felt after his death; he had other things to live for, but deep down he was just waiting until he could die and be with Jake again. Finn then asks to be reincarnated, to which Mr. Fox agrees, while Jake decides to remain in the 50th dead world. However, Jake ends up changing his mind at the last minute and rushes to join Finn. They fist bump one final time, finding themselves together again.

In the riding ring, Felice is unable to get Rousseau to jump the hurdles. The instructor says that it is enough for Rousseau today. Felice, frustrated, asks why Rousseau won't cooperate. The instructor replies that Rousseau is anxious. Sara leads Rousseau back to the stables. Walking together, Felice inquires if Sara's parents will show up on Parent's Day. Sara replies that her mom is, but not her father because she has no contact with him and he is a bad person. Felice then says that her father only wants her to get good grades and that her mother believes she can jump the 1.20 bar, which she actually can't.
The mystery of Don's past deepens when he is caught off guard by a man on the train who recognizes him from their days in the Korean War and refers to him as \"Dick Whitman.\" Don acknowledges the man and makes non-committal plans about getting together, while avoiding giving him any true information about his current identity as Don Draper.
Don meets again with Rachel Menken. That afternoon, he meets her at the store, where she gives him a tour and tells him stories about when she was a young girl and her father ran the store. On the rooftop, she shows him the store's guard dogs. She tells Don that her mother died giving birth to her and Don kisses her impulsively, then admits to her that he is married. In response, Rachel tells Don that she wants someone else put in charge of her account.
Don films the party with a handheld camera, and notices in all of the suburban flirtations, gossiping, back-biting, and one-upmanship, one couple sharing a genuinely tender and loving moment, which appears to distress him. Betty sees Don and Helen standing together, and quickly rushes out to ask him to pick up Sally's birthday cake. However, after getting the cake, he drives by his house without stopping. Betty is humiliated in front of all of the neighbors, while the children are disappointed. He finally returns late that night, the party long over, accompanied by a dog. Don gives Sally the dog as a gift. This recalls what Rachel told him on the roof about how a dog can be everything to a little girl. However, Betty's reaction is ambivalent.
Lucas sees the Hopewells at the boy's funeral and Gordon invites him over for dinner. When Carrie and Lucas are left alone, she tells him he's changed-he used to be kind. After being forgotten about for 15 years, Lucas feels he has reason to be unkind and storms out of the Hopewell home. He goes to Sugar's bar to drink off his anger, and sees Rebecca, the Amish girl he slept with earlier. They sleep together again, while Sugar calls someone and says, \"Look, you told me to call if she came back again. Well, she's back.\" Rebecca walks outside the bar to see her uncle -- Kai Procter -- waiting for her. He reprimands her for continuing to rebel against her upbringing, much like he did. That night, Carrie offers Lucas the diamonds in exchange for him leaving her alone, but he won't be bought off.
In engineering, Kim and Torres demonstrate the object they have developed to open a subspace fracture to Chakotay and Tuvok: a polaric generator. The device is activated and emits a green beam in front of them, causing a ripple effect. It uses the same polaric energy used on the planet to open a fracture. Tuvok recommends using the generator where Janeway and Paris disappeared. At that instant, the fracture emits a large burst of light and the generator disengages. The one problem with the generator is that it burns out after a maximum of 30 seconds at the necessary intensity. Another issue with the generator is that it cannot be used in the same location more than once due to subspace damage. Chakotay brings up the concern of becoming trapped in a fracture themselves. Torres has thought ahead and modified some tricorders to detect the fractures. She then displays an armband that deploys an antipolaric field. Chakotay compliments Torres and Kim and starts to leave, until Kes and Neelix arrive. Kes insists that she needs to join the away team to the planet. She mentions she has already seen the planet and insists again. Chakotay considers her request.
The men and Janeway continue to wait, so she asks for the time. Terla takes out a timepiece and mentions that it is 401 rotations plus 21 (401:21:02). She says to wait until it is 23. Makull asks about the importance of that time, but then sarcastically remarks that it is the time of the explosion. Before he can fully finish his comment, a bright light appears behind Janeway which increases in size, the widening of a subspace fracture. Terla has no idea what's going on, but Janeway realizes that her crew is trying to cut through subspace. As the fracture gets larger, Makull notes that it is getting closer and closer to the polaric conduit on the wall. It all comes together to Janeway: their own rescue attempt was the cause of the explosion. Using her phaser, she forces the rift to close on itself, stopping the explosion. When she does this, time resets itself, and everyone finds themselves back on Voyager, moments before the shock wave would have hit the ship. Paris once again tries to interest Kim in double-dating the Delaney sisters, and no one remembers anything about the incident, except Kes, who is strangely relieved that a nearby planet is teeming with life. Voyager continues on course back towards the Alpha Quadrant.
Inside the pyramid, the avatars have joined together. They are building a stone statue to imprison Khonshu. The camera pans up; the peak of the pyramid is gone and the night sky glitters beyond. Layla finds the coordinates. The powers of both Marc and Khonshu are evaporating. Khonshu is gone. The statue is complete. Marc falls unconscious.
She pauses and looks at him, he asks her if that passage makes her think of anything. She answers that it's like the \"other books\" they've read together, and that \"It's about change.\" She asks about his son, where he is now. He doesn't reply and puts her into Analysis Mode and asks what led her to ask that question. She answers that it seemed appropriate to ask a personal question at that point in the conversation. Appearing reassured, he tells her to Continue. 59ce067264
