Jasmine is a withdrawn but intelligent child whose new 'friends' exploit her suppressed anger, and while investigating this, Jack encounters elemental enemies from his past that are determined to harm those closest to him.
Jack introduces Gwen to his good friend, the elderly Estelle who believes in faeries and thinks she has the photographs to prove it. Estelle likes Jack and tells Gwen that she and Jack's father had a love affair during World War II. Gwen quickly realizes that it was with Jack that she had the affair and sees a wonderful chemistry between the of them. Jack and Gwen soon come to believe that the faeries are not the benign beautiful creatures Estelle believes them to be and when a young girl, Jasmine Pierce, becomes the object of their attention, Torchwood sets out to protect her.

When Estelle finishes her presentation she steps in front of the projector to turn it off and blocks the picture. There should be a bright spot of light on her coat but there isn't. See more »
Where did you and Estelle meet?
Captain Jack Harkness:
In London. At the Estoria ballroom. A few weeks before Christmas. She was seventeen years old and she was beautiful. I loved her at first sight. But nothing lasted back then. Promises were always being broken. Estelle... to have to die like that...

Through the forest in the dark Estelle with her camera manages to take pictures of fairies. But as soon as she walks away the shining fairies turn into big thin creatures. The next morning Jasmine waits for her mothers partner Roy to pick her up from school,but he is late. A man in the car follows Jasmine when she decides to walk home alone. On the road he stops in front of her, but when he grabs her and try to push her into his car he gets attacked by something powerful that he can't see. When he jumps back in his car and escapes, Jasmine safely unharmed returns home. Jack Harknesss and Gwen come to Estelle's lecture about fairies. He introduces her to Gwen as a former lover of his father who met her during second world war. Gwen get's suspicious about his relationship with Estelle when Estelle says to her that she never saw Jack and his father together. I must admit that the Fairies looked better when they just glowed in the dark. While I can understand why they were so protective of Jasmine, killing everyone who in any way stand in her path for me it was extreme. Also their thin narrow faces with sharp teeth made them look more like monsters than fairies. The way little Jasmine always smiled during and after fairies attacked someone was a way to creepy. However it was nice to see that even Jack Harknesss had nightmares and also that he had loved deeply in the past. The ending was very sad. The whole episode was a bit melancholic.
