This episode begins with Zeb wondering if Mike has grown to like him because he invited him to the opening to his bar, but Axl points out that Mike actually invited him, and he invited Zeb. As with anything involving Gods, Zeb is curious about which Gods will be in attendance, but Axl tells him not to talk about it around the house because Gaia is back. Zeb pushes that aside claiming that because Gaia is a chick that she'll be ages getting ready. Yeah, always nice when the show opens with a touch of sexism. Zeb wants to know if Axl is worried that Gaia will pick up on their God bond, to which Axl responds, "if that is what they have."
Gaia walks into the room and pours a shot of booze and says "lets get messed up." Axl and Zeb are shocked by this and when she walks out of the room, Zeb asks, "is it just me, or has Gaia loosened up since she got back?"
At the bar, Olaf suggests that Mike name his bar after his hall in Asgard, saying that it was the best party of them all. Mike is not impressed and answers that if he names his bar after Olaf's hall that it would be a license for him to drink there all the time. At a table, Axl tells Gaia that it is good to have her back, but she is quick to remind him that she is not back in that way. When Axl asks about what happened between Gaia and Jacob, Gaia makes it clear that she does not want to talk about it. Zeb comes to the table with a few beers and says that Mike does indeed hate him, while in the meantime, Gaia is busy checking out a guy in the bar.
Colin enters in his iconic red suit and Axl is clearly not impressed that he is there. When Mike goes around back to grab a bottle, Olaf uses that opportunity to hop behind the bar and starts pouring free drinks. When Mike returns, he pushes Olaf away pointing out that he doesn't want Olaf to give the bar away. Axl turns to see Gaia having drinks with the man she was looking at. He accuses Zeb of letting some man hit on her and expresses concern that she has just gotten out of a relationship. It's clear that Axl is still very much into Gaia.
At the bar, Colin asks Mike how it feels living every man's wet dream, because of course he now owns a bar. Mike says that it's just a bar, but Colin answers that for Mike it's a calling. Eva and Ty make their way in and Eva shoots Colin the finger and adds, "up your ass." Clearly, these two are still very much estranged. Mike tries to pull Ty aside, but Eva attempts to get in the way, causing Mike to tell her that it is family business that does not involve her.
In a backroom, Axl tells Ty that he looks like shit. This is hardy surprising considering who the poor man is married to - Eva is after all Hel. Ty is not impressed with the intervention. When Olaf asks him how stoned he is, Ty accuses him of judging him. Mike notices the brand on Ty he is concerned but Ty tells him that it's like a love bite. The man is so far gone that he cannot realise that his relationship with Eva is anything but healthy. Zeb rushes in and says that everyone needs to go downstairs right now.
It turns out that Eva and Michele are in a fight and I have to say that Eva is really kick ass. Mike breaks the two women apart and asks Colin for help, but he is not inclined to intervene. In frustration, Mike shoves Eva at Ty and tells him to control his wife. When Eva starts to resist, he throws her into the bar viciously. Eva stands up, spits out a mouth full of blood and then jumps on Ty, and the two start to make out. Silence descends and Zeb says, "that right there is a whole nother level of dysfunction right there." I couldn't agree with him more actually. Michel walks out with her arm around Colin.
Upstairs, Olaf and Mike sit down and Olaf begins to tell Mike the story of Charlie Truman, "the bloke who knew he was going to die." Apparently, Olaf was in the same unit with Truman who was convinced he was going to die and then he stepped on a mine. Olaf says that Truman had embraced his fate long before fate came to him and he points out that Truman had the same look in his eyes as Ty does now. I am glad that the brothers have taken note how dangerous this relationship is for Ty, because far too often, people remain silent not wanting to get involved or cause a scene.
Downstairs, Stacey is behind the bar serving drinks to Ingrid. Apparently, the fact that Stacey is a handmaiden is still making her want to serve. When Zeb asks for another drink, Stacey who is drunk herself, tells him that she is not serving him because he is drunk. Ax approaches Gaia and asks her if she is thinking about heading home, but she says that she is heading to a party and leaves with the man she was making out with.
In the bathroom, Ty and Eva have a man trapped against a wall. She tells him that he is going to walk the line between life and death and then Ty places his hand on him. Axl walks in and realises that Ty is killing the human, so he grabs Tym but when Eva tries to stop Ty from leaving Axl says, "you freaky bitch shut up." Mike hustles Eva and her adherents out of the bar and tells her not to bother coming back. Eva asks about her husband, and Mike answers that they need to talk to Ty for a little bit, causing her to call Mike a prick before storming out.
Mike asks Ty what he was thinking and Ty answers, "they like it - touching death. Eva likes to take them to the edge before we bring them back." Mike tells him that using his powers on mortals risks all of them, but Ty counters by reminding Mike that he uses his powers all of the time these days. Ty says that it makes him tired listening to Mike sometimes and walks out of the bar. Olaf simply says, "Charlie Truman." Mike answers that it is time for a think and when Axl asks what he means, Mike responds, "you'll see."
The next day, Axl is sleeping on his couch when a banging at the door wakes him. When he answers Bryn walks in saying, "I presume that she's here." When he cannot find Gaia, he again asks where she is. Axl says that when she returned, Gaia was upset about something, and he wants to know what Bryn did to her. Bryn says that he loved her, which immediately grosses Zeb out, forcing Bryn to rephrase and add that he cared for her as a father. Bryn again asks where she is and Axl responds, "not here." Bryn decides that he is going to wait there for Gaia to return. Axl tells Zeb that he has to go to a think and says that if Gaia shows up, that he shouldn't allow Bryn to take her.
On his way out, Axl calls Gaia to warn her that Bryn is at the house waiting for her. As Ty leaves his house, Mike grabs his keys and tells him that they are calling a thing and Olaf picks him up and puts him bodily into the truck. I have to say that this is the second time that we have seen how strong the actor who plays Olaf is. Just wow. Ty points out that he has appointments to keep but Olaf says that he is a tradesman and people expect him to be late. As they drive off, Stacey watches from her bike.
They take Ty to play mini golf and Axl is not impressed, but Olaf says that this is what they do while they are doing the thing. Axl again asks what thing, and Olaf says a thing in the old language means a gathering of the clans to meet talk and solve problems. Axl wants to know if the thing is going to take long, but Olaf says it takes as long as it's going to take. As they begin to play, obviously Mike cannot lose. Ty says that he chose this path and that it is his path to tread. Mike responds that should he chose not to tread this path that he will support him. Ty answers that they don't want to go to war with Hel - and not on his behalf. Olaf points out that there are four of them and five if they count Anders. Olaf suggests that they can take her out in a fight but Ty says that he doesn't need them, or Agnetha fighting his fights. Mike points out that even if Ty is fine, which is bullshit, that freezing people for fun effects them all. Axl pipes up saying that he is afraid that Ty is going to kill someone. Ty points out that he feels more alive around Eva than he has in years, but Mike says that he doesn't want Ty to die. Ty asks if he promises to stop freezing people, if they will leave him and alone and Mike promises to do so for now.
When Axl returns to the house, Bryn is still waiting, so Axl says that he will tell Gaia that he was there but Bryn is not happy with this arrangement. Bryn says "I came for my daughter and I'll leave with my daughter." Axl tells him that this is not going to happen and that Gaia has a say in this. Finally, finally, someone brings up the point that Gaia actually might have some agency. Then he says that he will stop Bryn if need be. Bryn reminds Axl that he warned him what he would do to him if need be, and Axl says that he would like to see him try. As Bryn gets up, Gaia walks in and announces, "yes, I'm a slut. See a problem?"
