Thomas continues to orate. "I believe it is they who should serve us. But if you believe in Sophia, then stay. Go back to your cells. Wait another 66 years." And so on. The choice, he says, is theirs. Maya looks appalled at the people going with them. But then someone tells her that a group of them are staying, and she doesn't like that idea either. Thanks, Maya.
Thomas's personal guard leads detainees out. Maya is with them. Thomas tells Lt. Greer to open the door. Meanwhile, Sterling is in the command room typing his clearance number into the computer. I bet you did not know that all you need for a high security clearance is the ability to guess a sixteen-digit number. I guess that ability would also let you register software products you don't own. And there's probably a credit fraud application. Greer opens the door, but before it can get all the way open, Sterling's reset is successful. The door closes again. Thomas is, logically, annoyed: "What's going on? Open the damn door!" Greer says someone must have done it from the command room. Thomas sends his gun squad to bring Sterling back... alive!
The corporal wraps Sterling's wound. They see a bunch of goons running their way (I guess the security monitors aren't hacked anymore), so they leave the command room and go on a tour of random hallways. Sterling doesn't look too good. They're looking for the armory, but they stumble on a room full of people lying face-down. Sterling says they're detainees! And they're dead! Except for this one guy, who, in a shocking coincidence, is the one who told Maya he was staying. He says that Thomas did this to them. The corporal wonders why Thomas would do this to his own people, and Blake says, "They're not his people. They're Sophia's. This isn't just a prison break. It's a coup d'etat." Then goons bust in and Sterling lays his gun down.
