Ice features brothers Sedge and Fletcher setting out to encounter the Frostwhales, native creatures to the ice planet that many humans have for some reason found themselves on. It is explained that Sedge is the first unmodded person in “100 light-years,” with him looked down upon due to his lack of modifications. This causes Sedge to feel inferior compared to his modded brother Fletcher, who has highly increased strength and agility.

Sedge and Fletcher venture out with other modded humans to a barren area above where the Frostwhales swim. It is explained that the gang must race away from the Frostwhales after they begin to surface, and that they have until the count of seven to escape. However, the Frostwhales appear earlier than expected, seemingly causing Fletcher to hurt his leg in the process.

Despite lagging behind as a result of his lack of modifications, Sedge manages to pick Fletcher up and run away from the breaching Frostwhales. This leads to him being celebrated by the group, with him being accepted despite his role as an outsider. However, the episode ends with Sedge having his hat stolen by the group, with Fletcher then exhibiting his lack of a leg injury by running and fetching it for him.

Fletcher stealing Sedge’s hat back indicates that he was faking the injury all along, as he knew Sedge would rise to the occasion and prove his ability despite his lack of modifications. This allowed Sedge to show he could fit in with the modified humans, despite him having previously been berated due to his lack of physical enhancements.

The episode concludes with the brothers shooting each other a knowing smile, suggesting that their relationship is on the mend and that Sedge will be able to integrate with the locals in this different world.
