Torchwood Episode 35:
Escape To LA


Torchwood sets its sights on top secret data hidden in a Phi-Corp installation in Los Angeles. Before they leave Washington, however, Esther's decision to visit her sister -- whose psychological problems have been exacerbated by the events following Miracle Day -- draws a Phi-Corp assassin to their trail. Meanwhile, Oswald finds his status as media sensation challenged by a conservative politician who advocates a grim fate for the “living deceased”. And, in Wales, the next stage in Phi-Corp's exploitation of the Miracle has very personal consequences for the Torchwood team.
