We meet Maxx as he attempts to save a woman from thugs. The police arrive on the scene, and the thugs accuse Maxx of attacking them. So Maxx is carted off to jail, the thugs go free, and the woman becomes the prey of Mr. Gone -- occultist and serial rapist/killer. We meet Julie Winters, freelance social worker, as she bails Maxx out from jail. As the episode progresses, elements of Maxx's fantasy world, "The Outback" are introduced.
