Synopsis for "The Eternal Return, Part 10 of 12: In the Garden of Ancestral Memory"
Bendix is awakened by his assistant Samson. He informs Bendix that two prisoners have escaped – Habib Bin Hassan, the new Doctor and the essence of Jeroen Thorndike, the previous Doctor.
Bendix gets dressed in his gear and orders an immediate meeting. Jenny Quantum has surprised him again by staging these escapes onboard his Carrier. If the Authority is to be defeated, he must act quickly before Quantum and the young Doctor grow further into their abilities.
Meanwhile, in the Garden of Ancestral Memory, Jeroen is reunited with his predecessors, who welcome him to the afterlife. Jeroen is upset, but Jeroen's predecessor helps him accept his passing and get his bearings. He has work to do. Jeroen and his predecessor explain to Habib what his role as the Doctor means. Jenny Quantum then questions Habib if he is ready to fight a supervillain. Habib agrees but needs help in instructing how to use his powers.
As the Authority await the return of Jenny and the Doctor, Bendix, Rose and a crew of henchman suddenly appear on the Authority’s Carrier. Apollo attacks, flying straight at Bendix. But Bendix has the Carrier open a shift-door to intercept Apollo's attack. Apollo is sent to the planet of a distant star that has no heat, where Bendix’s henchmen await him. Bendix expects Apollo to win, but not before draining his solar-charged batteries in battle. Bendix then has the Carrier teleport Rose Tattoo to New York City, along with the Engineer and Swift. This leaves Bendix to deal with Hawksmoor and Midnighter directly.
In New York, Rose is atop the Empire State Building killing tourists. The Engineer creates duplicates of herself to catch the falling victims, then notices them decaying in her arms. She warns Swift not to let Rose touch her, but it’s already too late, as Swift has descended upon Rose and has her in hand.
Jenny and the Doctor appear on the Carrier, but Bendix quickly has the Carrier teleport the pair to the depths of the multiverse. Bendix then has the Carrier teleport him and Hawksmoor to the Sahara Desert and then a tropical island. Disconnected from his source of power, all cities, Hawksmoor is a mere punching bag for Bendix to toy with.
Meanwhile, Apollo defeats his adversary by flying through his head and taking his micro-circuit. The circuit serves as a homing device, which allows the henchman to reappear by Bendix’s side. Apollo uses it instead, and reappears on the Carrier’s deck. Jenny and the Doctor also arrive back.
Just then, Midnighter punches Jenny through the hull glass into orbit. Bendix, who created Midnighter and Apollo, is now in full control of Midnighter and has ordered him to kill his teammates.
