It refers back to the Vietnam war when Harry Bosco altered information and manipulated translations. Kitzinger has been creating smokescreens.
Finally, Rex is brought back into the fold as Esther calls and asks for the C.I.A.’s help. Unfortunately, Charlotte witnesses Rex taking the call and realises something is up.
In Shanghai, Kitzinger fails her first test by forgetting to use her new name of Lucy Statten Meredith. The Young Man (Adam Silver) tells her that she is a storyteller, that she tells a story the minute she walks through a door. He tells her the story of the three Families, how they went out into the world and entered politics, finance and the media. He tells her that they need her to rewrite history and we realise that Jilly Kitzinger is central to the events in Torchwood: Miracle Day.
The Torchwood team begin to identify a series of strange events across the world and watch a news item that has been translated twice, each time moving further from the truth. A badly injured man on a gurney supposedly tells reporters that it is a godsend that his life was saved, which was translated from the Mandarin “it’s a blessing my life was saved” and in the original, it was “The Blessing saved my life”. It seems Jilly Kitzinger and the Bosco-effect have been in full force and the Torchwood team realise that The Blessing is either in Shanghai or Buenos Aires.
Gwen’s father Geraint once again becomes the centre of a tragic and painful scene as Finch and his team break down the door and use thermal imaging to find Geraint in the basement. As Geraint is taken away on a gurney, Jack asks Gwen what she wants to do next. Between clenched teeth, she says, "Go to Shanghai, I don't care if we have to walk. I will travel the whole bloody world to put this right, Jack". Could this really be the end for Geraint Cooper?
In the midst of all of this heartbreak, Rhys tells the team that The Blessing is in both Shanghai and Buenos Aires, that they are two cities on opposite sides of the planet. And so it is that the Torchwood team splits up once again. Oswald Danes weasels himself in on the mission and joins Jack and Gwen in Shanghai, while Rex and Esther fly to Buenos Aires, tipping Charlotte Wills off in the process.
