Contents

Synopsis

Gwen's fiancé, Rhys, discovers the truth about Torchwood and helps the team as they investigate a mysterious alien-meat supply. Will Rhys go too far? And can Torchwood save the alien from being used as cheap meat?

Plot

Rhys Williams is out driving when he is telephoned by a work mate to inform him that one of their firm's lorries has crashed. He drives to the site of the crash and see that one of his employees and friend has died. Torchwood appears on the scene and Rhys spots Gwen amongst them.

The Torchwood team confiscates the meat that the lorry was transporting when they suspect it of being alien. Gwen recognises the lorry as one from Rhys' firm. Back at the Hub, Toshiko rings Rhys' office for information pretending to be the police. At home Rhys texts Gwen asking for her to come home. He attempts to get her to confess to being at the crash site but she is evasive.

He sees Gwen meeting up with Jack near the invisible lift in Roald Dahl Plass and follows her to a factory. While there he is captured by a group of men and taken into the factory. Jack and Gwen see this and mistake his actions for collaboration. The men show Rhys that they have captured a live "space whale" (nicknamed the "cash cow" by its captors) which is the source of the meat and which continues to grow despite them cutting chunks of its flesh away while it is still alive. In an act of self-preservation, Rhys agrees to replace his dead employee for the men.

Back at their flat, Rhys and Gwen argue over her being at the crash and Gwen admits to the nature of her work for Torchwood. Rhys is disbelieving until she shows him around the Hub. With Rhys' help the team manages to inflitrate the factory so they can free the alien creature. The team hides in one of Rhys' vans and Rhys drives them to the factory where the team sneaks in.

They locate the creature and plan to stun gun the men and sedate it so they can move it back to the Hub until the Cardiff spacetime Rift reopens. They confirm that the creature is sentient, but the men discover them and in the fights Rhys is shot. The creature becomes distressed and Owen can see no other option but to euthanise it when it poses a threat to them by struggling. They are able to stun the men and feed them amnesia pills. Back at the Hub, Owen patches up Rhys' wound and Jack orders Gwen to give Rhys a pill too. She finds that she cannot bring herself to do so and Jack relents, disappointed about this but is unwilling to fire Gwen and face losing her from the team.

  • Gwen mentions retcon (the drug).
  • This is the second time Gwen has told Rhys what she does as a job, although it does not appear to trigger the re-emergence of the memories of the previous time, which Gwen suppressed with Retcon.

Story notes

  • Coincidentally, the episode aired for the first time in Canada at the same time as a tainted meat outbreak in that country was causing mass recalls and deaths.[1]
  • The theme of humans exploiting alien life forms would be touched on again only two episodes later in Reset, as well as in the Doctor Who episode Planet of the Ood, which aired a few months later.
  • Ianto shows a reaction to the exploiting of the defenseless alien and his endangered teammates; violently attacking the meat-traffickers, slamming one with a door, and stun-gunning another one on the head as he says "Pray they survive".
  • This is another episode where Jack and Ianto's relationship is shown, when Tosh tells Owen to go out with someone he works with Ianto and Jack share a look that implies that's what they are doing. Also prior to this, Jack is seen staring at Ianto intentivley.

Discontinuity, Plot Holes, Errors

  • Rhys' stated ignorance of alien life appears somewhat anachronistic given that the episode takes place at some point after the events of DW: The Runaway Bride, The Christmas Invasion, which made the presence of alien life widely known to the populace of Great Britain. It has been widely suggested that such incidents, like the Battle of Canary Wharf have been chalked up to mass hallucination by mainstream opinion (TW: Everything Changes). Rhys may likely subscribe to this opinion. Even knowing that aliens do exist, one would still find it unexpected to discover that his fiancee fights them on a regular basis.

Meat is a friendly Glowing One that can be found in either The Chop Shop, the Scrapyard or out in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.

Contents

Background

Meat most likely escaped from the Chop Shop in Underworld. He cannot be spoken to, or interacted with, and he seems to hang around the Scrapyard area when found. If you check the Chop Shop's records, it says he liked chewing on his arm. Meat is in the Chop Shop for observational purposes, along with another Glowing One named Ethyl.

Occupation and activities

Meat is a glowing one that is under the observation of Doctor Barrows in the Chop Shop.

Interactions with the player character

Meat is a random event when not inside of Underworld. He is friendly and poses no threat to the Lone Wanderer unless provoked.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Cooked meat article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the item made by cooking meat from ordinary cows, bears or giant rats. For the item made by cooking meat from an undead cow, see Cooked meat (undead).
"Meat" redirects here. For others meats, see Food.

Cooked meat is a food item that players can eat by itself, or they can use it to make stews, meat pies, and meat pizzas[1]. It is made by using any of the animals' steak-like raw meats with a fire or range.

To obtain meat, players must first kill a cow, cow calf, giant rat, Yak, Pawya or bear. It will drop raw meat, which players can then cook.

There is a risk that the meat will burn to produce a piece of burnt meat (which is required for the Witch's Potion quest) (if your level is too high to burn meat then simply cook it twice). Although many burning incidents may occur at first, these will decrease rapidly as the player's cooking skill increases and eventually never happen.

This is one of the easiest of items to cook, requiring a cooking level of only 1 (to gain 30 experience), and heals 3 hitpoints when consumed[2].

Cooked meat can also be purchased at Wydin's Food Store in Port Sarim, at the general store in Ardougne, and from Chargurr at Oo'glog. It is also a fairly common drop from Minotaurs in the Stronghold of Security (level 1).
