Torchwood Episode 40:
The Gathering


Two months after the Torchwood team was scattered across both sides of the Atlantic, they are brought back together by none other than Oswald Danes. Oswald has unwittingly unearthed a clue in Jilly Kitzinger's files which leads Torchwood to conclude that the mysterious Blessing can be found in two places, situated on diametrically opposite points on the globe: Shanghai, China and Buenos Aires, Argentina. As the countries of the world plunge into economic depression and political fascism, Torchwood embarks on a final mission to stop the Miracle and save mankind.
