"You ready to go ghost again?"
Ben Tennyson

Chapter 2: The Lonely Ghost is the second chapter of 5 Years Later.

Plot Summary

After spending five years finding his way back to Earth from his astro-isolation, Vlad revisits his old mansion, now in custody of the state, and his laboratory underneath. He spends time reflecting on his past when he is interrupted by Eon, who offers to return Vlad to his full health and strength in exchange for his services. Vlad is reluctant at first, but agrees when he realizes he has nothing else left to live for.

Back in Ben’s Dimension, Ben, Rook, and Danny attempt to figure out how to return Danny home while sharing smoothies. Danny begins to doubt himself as a hero, and Blukic and Driba begin creating their own ghost portal. Lula enters to warn Ben of a threat detected in Bellwood.

Danny and Ben then teleport to Max’s Plumbing, and come face-to-face with Vlad.
