Max and Logan lay CeCe out on a table and cover her face. Logan tells Max that it wasn't her fault. Max says that it's all her fault, because she let the transgenics loose in the world, and there's no place for them anywhere. Logan starts singing "Somewhere" from West Side Story. Okay, not really. Logan says, "You gave them freedom, Max. The thing about freedom, it's never free." Oh, who writes this crap? That is the worst line ever. How did Michael Weatherly deliver that with a straight face?
Time passes. OC is telling Gem to push. Normal overhears and walks over, telling OC that she's doing it all wrong, and Gem shouldn't be pushing at all. Normal tells Gem to relax and breathe. Normal peeks under Gem's skirt and tells her that she's fully dilated, so it won't be long now. OC asks how Normal knows about this. Normal says that his father was a dairy farmer, so he knows his way around the inside of a heifer. Shut up, Normal. Max walks over, and Gem says that she needs a weapon. Max tells her that she's out of the fight. Gem insists that she and her baby are getting out of there alive. Max promises that if Gem concentrates on having the baby, Max will make sure they survive.
Sigh. More citizens proclaim on the news that the transgenics are evil, terrible, inhuman monsters. Dear James: We get it. WE! GET! IT! Love, the world.
The Phalanx pulls up in a van. Lita walks up to White, who calls Clemente to say that he's inserting his team now. Clemente reluctantly agrees. Otto walks over and asks what's going on. White says that this team is on loan from another agency. Otto protests, but White says that Otto isn't "cleared for this op." He orders Otto to "walk away; do it now." Otto does. White tells Lita to look at the bystanders. As White and Lita walk towards the building, White says that when they carry Max out in a body bag, the bystanders will be clapping and cheering. White concludes, "They'll never know she's their only hope."
Max walks up to Logan and Joshua and announces that White wants her, so she's going out there. Logan refuses to allow that. Max says that White wants this thing to end as badly as possible, and she's not going to let that happen. Logan decides that now would be a good time to share his translation of the runes on Max's body. And he didn't tell her this before because ? Logan doesn't have the exact translation, but it goes a little something like this: "When the shroud of death covers the face of the earth, the one whose power is hidden will deliver the helpless." Max asks what that means. Logan says that something bad, "biblically bad," is going to happen. OC adds that Max is the one who will stop it. Mole walks over and says that if all this is true, maybe Max should go out there. Max is fast and has a chance at making it, and White might leave the rest of them alone. Logan disagrees. Mole says that they're out of options. Logan and Mole continue to argue, but the words go all slow motion to indicate how overwhelmed Max is with this new information. Max turns, and there's a focus pull in on her face. She turns and says, "They're coming." Max tells everyone to get upstairs, and orders Joshua to carry Gem.
