Full Details

D’rge (the main Sorcerer Wraith on Earth) has used a spell to incapacitate ROM and Camilla Byers.

D’rge touches his finger to Camilla’s forehead and she learns the history of the Wraith on Earth. A long history.

In flashback: The Dire Wraiths not disguised as humans appear in what is possibly 19th Century America to Amish farmers. So they learned to disguise themselves to live like and with humans. They become refugees and make Earth their home.

While Camilla and D’rge have their history lesson it allows ROMenough time to recharge his neutralizers for a wide beam.

One of the pair of wraiths with D’rge disguised as military is killed. D’rge flees. The remaining wraith grabs Camilla.

Camilla gets inside his head long enough to mind control him to step away from her. ROM shoots him in the head with his neutralizer.

ROM analyzes Camilla and sees that the wraith touch is growing, she is slowly becoming wraith. He says he can cure her.

Darby Mason is at Vandenburg AFB with Earth Defense Command's Dave Dubosky (GI Joe's Countdown, but here he is not connected to GI Joe). They lead her to a van and give her a phone with GPS and a weapon. She boards the van and sees all aboard are Wraith.

Darby leaves the van and sits on a park bench. She says she texted her boyfriend to pick her up and the van full of wraith leaves.

An hour later ROM arrives with Camilla. Darby shoots into the air.

Darby and Camilla exchange stories. Darby suggests a Trojan horse to get onto the base and identify the wraith.

Dubosky picks up Darby. Camilla and ROM are his prisoners.

They go to Vandenburg where they are stopped at the gate. Darby tells the gate guard they have ROM captive.
