As the years go by the various characters go about their lives but in 1991, Crawford is called back to service when the payload aboard a spacecraft vanishes. Jesse Keys' son Charlie is a successful schoolteacher but has decided that he will resist any further attempts at abducting him. Lisa meets Charlie when they are both abducted; she finds out soon after that she is pregnant. Crawford tells his now adult daughter Mary about the work he has been doing and invites her to join him.
