Meanwhile in the present day, Agnes Nutter's descendant arrives on her world-saving mission. Witchfinder Sergeant Shadwell is contacted separately by both Aziraphale and Crowley, and asked to help them in their search for the Antichrist. He puts his new recruit, Newt Pulsifer, on the case. And as the end of the world nears and more of the Four Horsemen are summoned, Adam blissfully and naively uses his powers, changing the world to fit his imagination.
