'Torchwood' Returns With Immortality for Everyone Except Captain Jack (VIDEO)

'Torchwood: Miracle Day' - 'The New World'After a two-year hiatus, another global incident means it's time to reassemble 'Torchwood' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz) to figure out what's going on. This time, it looks like the gang is being forcibly relocated to the United States by a dead man.

But then again, that's the problem. 'Miracle Day' is the subtitle of this series of 'Torchwood.' Where 'Children of Earth' had every child on the planet impacted, this one affects every living person. And every living person is every person on the planet ... no matter what.

No one is dying, even the people who should be dying, including our friend who surrounds Gwen, Jack and Rhys at the close of this premiere. There's some strange connection to Torchwood and this global crisis.

Sure, it sounds great on the surface that no one dies, but the difference is they don't heal. See, Captain Jack is immortal, but he heals when he is injured. No one else does. This point was gruesomely driven home when a suicide bomber survived the explosion in what was left of his body.

To test a theory, Jack even had the mortician sever his head completely -- it was barely hanging on as it is -- and afterward, the head still opened its eyes. Oh, 'Torchwood,' how we've missed you.

And speaking of immortal, another wrinkle to this phenomenon is that our Jack appears to now be mortal. Or at least he's stopped healing. What does it mean? Who, or what, is behind it all?
