The single sock on the bed looks sad and lonely. Ianto knows that feeling all too well, it’s the one he had after Jack left without warning. But Jack returned to him and took the loneliness away; the least Ianto can do is find his sock’s lost mate. It has to be around here somewhere.
Maybe he’s being daft, but he can’t give up; his sock hunt has become a mission of mercy, he simply has to reunite the pair.
Thus begins a painstaking search of the house, starting down in the utility room and backtracking along the laundry’s route.
