Gideon heard Sara scream her name as she walked through the portal onto her ship leaving the two women who had taken her Captain away from her to burn.

It was better than they deserved.

Taking one last look while they struggled in the flames, Gideon closed the portal leaving them to their fate.

Walking to the parlour she sank into the chair and began to cry.

"Gideon?" Rip's voice came, concern filling it, "What's wrong?"

She shook her head unable to speak through her sobs.

"It's alright," Rip soothed, "Gideon, talk to me. Tell me what's wrong."

"I did it," Gideon finally managed to speak, "I did it. I made them pay for their betrayal of you."

Rip's hand rested by her cheek, "Then why are you crying?"

"Because it's over," Gideon whispered, "And I'm...I don't want you to leave me."

"Why do you think I'd ever leave you?" he asked gently.

"My mission is over," Gideon replied.

He shook his head, "Of course it's not and even if it was I told you, Gideon we're connected now and always."

Looking up at him hope filled her.

"Time still needs to be protected," Rip reminded her, "But I know you can't do it alone. The Time Bureau will send people after you and if one of them managed to harm you I would never forgive myself. You need to ensure that you are safe, for me."

"How do I do that?" Gideon asked.

"As you know when Mallus was released other things followed him out," Rip told her, "The magic that transformed you along with our connection grants you power over them."

Surprise covered her face, "It does?"

Rip smiled at her, "You have always been special, Gideon. Even as an AI you were amazing but now, now you are truly exceptional. You're powerful, Gideon and that power is what we need."

"I don't know how, Captain," Gideon sighed.

He smiled at her, "I'll show you."

Rip took a seat in the co-pilots chair while Gideon took the Captain's chair, "Scan for the energy signatures Mr Constantine gave to locate the creatures. We may have to travel for a while to collect as many as we need."

Gideon did as he said frowning in confusion at the information that appeared before her.

"Did you find them?" Rip asked softly.

"Yes," she replied turning to him, "There is however a large grouping in one time and place."

Rip nodded, "That is strange but considering the idiots broke time then they may have opened a specific portal without knowing."

"There is more, Captain," Gideon told him, "I am seeing aberrations appear and then disappear at short intervals."

A confused frown touched his face, "Unexpected but it is possible the additional time energy is creating then removing them," looking up at her once more he gave her a smile, "It is definitely the place to find those who will protect you."

Gideon looked up at him worriedly, "Are you sure?"

Reaching out he stroked at the side of her cheek, "You will be their queen, my darling Gideon. They will protect you above everything, just as I would if I...if I had the ability to touch anything."

A blush touched Gideon's cheeks and she smiled at him shyly.

"So," Rip said softly, "Where are we going?"

"London," Gideon told him, "1885. The same year the Time Masters took you from."
