Summary

Bernard begins discovering strange symbols on many of the windows he is cleaning which Wooton reveals to be the PowerBoy symbol for help.

Plot

Bernard Walton is cleaning the windows at Madge's shop. Wooton Bassett walks up as Bernard is finishing and notices that Bernard missed a spot. The more Bernard sprays to try to get it off, more shows up. After a moment a deign appears on the window. Wooton recognizes it as the Powerboy help symbol. Wooton decides that someone needs their help.

Bernard moves on to his next client, with Wooton close behind. Wooton is excited and wants to see if the symbol will show up on more windows. Wooton thinks the symbol might have something to do with the new windows that were installed at businesses all over town. As Bernard cleans the window, the symbol shows up again. Wooton is more sure than before that someone needs their help.

Bernard goes to Whit's End and talks to John Whittaker (Whit) and Connie Kendall at the counter. The symbol showed up on four windows around town. Whit states that they got new windows a while back too, but the symbol hasn't shown up yet. Bernard decides to clean the window to see what happens. After a moment, the symbol shows up just like before. Whit notices that Bernard is using a new cleaner. Whit thinks that the combination of new cleaner on new glass is doing it to the windows. They conclude that Bernard should talk to the creators of the formula and see if they have any ideas about what's going on.

Bernard goes to see the creator of the cleaning formula, and bumps into Wooton, who is also waiting to talk to the same person. Wooton came to the same conclusion as Bernard. Wooton comments that they should work together on this mystery to solve it faster. Howard Hastiderwitz enters and greets Wooton and Bernard. When Bernard explains that the cleaner is ruining windows, Howard hyperventilates. Once Howard recovers, he takes them to the laboratory where they test the formula on every surface imaginable. Howard grabs one of their test window panes from See Right Glass Company and sprays his formula on the window. Just like before, the symbol appears. Howard once again hyperventilates.

At Whit's End, Whit is doing some web searches for the power boy help symbol but getting nowhere. Connie tries to help by changing up how they word the search. They find an article from the Greensburg Gazette, that had the same symbol spray painted on a wall.

Wooton and Bernard finish at the cleaner company, and they decide to go to Whit's End to see what new information Connie and Whit have found. Connie greets them, and has Whit come down to join them. Connie and Whit tell Wooton and Bernard that the symbol is being used all over Greensburg to support a protest against employee practices. Whit also talked to the owner of the See Right Glass Company and was told that he would cover the cost of the damaged windows, once Bernard called and talked to him. Wooton isn't convinced that this mystery is over. He's certain that the help symbol is serious and is determined to find out who used it and why. (Continued in #617: “The Other Side of the Glass, Part 2”)
