Without warning, the shelter's phone begins to ring, echoing through the halls. Emma hesitantly answers and finds that it is William Minerva. Meanwhile, in an underground room at the farm headquarters, a deal is made…
Emma and the other escapees manage to survive the attack on the shelter. Now they have settled in an abandoned temple a short ways from a demon town. Unlike the shelter and Grace Field House, here there is a limited supply of food.
Norman, thought to have been shipped, stands before Emma and Ray. It is a reunion they never dreamed of, and they embrace tearfully. Norman reveals his plan to create the future Emma wants, where the children can live happily.
Though Emma pleads with him, explaining she has no wish to eradicate the demons, Norman is set in his decision and deaf to her arguments. To resolve their dispute, Emma proposes a deal.
Norman, seized by coughing, spits up blood. He lied about not being experimented on when he was at Lambda. With the time he has left, Norman reunites with Emma in order to create a world where she and the children can live in peace.
Norman has begun executing his plan without waiting for Emma. When Emma, Ray, and Sonju appear, Norman is hesitating to kill Vylk and his grandchild, but he tells them that they are too late and that the plan is already in motion.
Vincent reveals his plan to enter the farm. After hearing this plan, Peter reconfigures the security to prepare for the intruders. Meanwhile, the shipment of children from the house has been set in motion, and Phil has already arrived.
As Emma extends her hand to Peter and says, "Let's be free," he shows a calm expression, but realizes his true fate. The children finally arrive at the gate leading to the human world, where they hope to pass through.
