Summary: No one is ever really ready for the big, life-changing moments. When a long lost friend comes through the Rift, he triggers an event that stretches Torchwood's resources to the breaking point. On the heels of that crisis, an even older enemy – the spectre of which Ianto had used to spur Jack into rebuilding Torchwood – tests Jack's mantra of 'You've got to be ready'.
