When Davy doesn't return to pick Millie up from one of their many hide-outs in the middle of nowhere, she's forced to strike out on her own. After a traumatic incident, she realizes she has gained the same ability Davy has. She becomes even more determined to find out what happened to Davy on her own, all while being chased by a mysterious organization.
