Marcus is making plans for a vital summit meeting of community leaders, requiring an all-or-nothing outlay of Thunder Mountain’s resources (particularly vehicles). But what seems like a well-orchestrated plan starts to unravel when Jeremiah and Kurdy uncover evidence that Lee Chen, Marcus’ right-hand man and chief of security, is a double agent for Valhalla Sector, and has removed pages from Simon’s journal of contacts and clues. When Jeremiah confronts Lee with this accusation, Lee disappears from Thunder Mountain – and Kurdy finds the missing journal page, mentioning the Brothers of the Apocalypse and the second coming of the Big Death.
With the summit plans compromised, Marcus now faces the prospect of continuing with his mission and exposing himself and everyone attending the summit to attack. Jeremiah and Kurdy set out to track down the Brothers of the Apocalypse, but do so without Marcus’ blessing – and a warning that they won’t be welcome at Thunder Mountain if they leave the base at this critical moment. Jeremiah is ready to take that risk, but Kurdy is furious with him for making that decision for both of them. Kurdy promises that when Jeremiah has located the Brothers of the Apocalypse, he’s going to take the land rover back to Thunder Mountain, and Jeremiah will be on his own.
The trail of clues leads Jeremiah back to Clarefield and Theo, who tells him where the Brothers have set up their makeshift monastery. Jeremiah and Kurdy do indeed find a group of monks there, all of whom are revealed to be in their forties or older: survivors of the Big Death. And they do, in fact, know that the disease could experience a resurgence soon, this time wiping out all life on Earth.
Elizabeth comes to Clarefield, on assignment to pick up Theo for the summit, but when she learns that Jeremiah and Kurdy have visited Theo, she diverts from her mission and tries to find them. But Lee Chen has tipped off his masters at Valhalla Sector, knowing that Jeremiah and Kurdy will be looking for the Brothers of the Apocalypse, and a vicious ambush ensues. Elizabeth is shot, and Jeremiah discovers that Ezekiel, a mysterious man who has claimed in the past to be his brother, is with the monks. Kurdy, furious that Jeremiah’s reckless risk-taking has left the life of the woman he loves in jeopardy, takes the Land Rover and leaves Jeremiah to fend for himself. Knowing now that the summit is in danger, Jeremiah and Ezekiel set out on foot to try to prevent a disaster.
