White Vincent
"Balance" is the ninth episode of Season One of Zero Hour and the ninth episode overall. It first aired July 13, 2013 on ABC.


Hank, Beck and Laila accelerate their search for the True Cross to the Faroe Islands. With renewed hope that her husband, Theo ("Molars"), is alive, Beck sets out to find him. Meanwhile back home, the Gallistons sense that Hank is in trouble and know the time has come to tell him the truth about his early years. In his pursuit of Hank, Mr. Galliston stops by Modern Skeptic Magazine, and his confrontation with Melanie Lynch of the 41 Trust leaves everyone wondering about their connection. Finally, back in the Faroe Islands, White Vincent and his team race to find the Cross before Hank's team does, and with a Passion Flower guiding their next movement, shocking discoveries hidden deep beneath the ground change past and future history forever.
