Rembrandt and Colin slide into a war torn world, but without Quinn and Maggie! The vortex opens again minutes later and Quinn and Maggie emerge as if nothing had ever happened. To them the slide was perfectly normal. It isn't until later that weird things start to happen. Quinn and Maggie fall ill to a strange sickness and are rendered unconscious. An army doctor examines them and is astonished to discover that every symptom of their malady suggests that they are dying of old age. A medical alert is sounded. The Chandler is to be quarantined to prevent any further spread of this unknown disease.

Meanwhile, a strange ghostly figure appears to Rembrandt and Colin. He tells them he is a trans-dimensional traveler named Thomas Mallory. He also claims to be the son of Quinn and Maggie! Thomas proceeds to explain that during the slide, part of Quinn and Maggie were spun off and became the focal point of a kind of bubble universe. The parts of Quinn and Maggie that did split off have lived an entire lifetime in that universe in a matter of hours and will be dead soon. When they die, our Quinn and Maggie who are still connected to them will die as well. That is unless Thomas, along with Rembrandt and Colin, can take them to the bubble universe to be re-joined with their older selves. But time is fast running out...
