Alec comes out with the horse’s blanket and Kiera recognizes his voice. He asks what she is doing there and Roland asks if he knows Kiera. He quickly changes his tune and says that he saw Carlos on the news. Kiera asks for the invoices.
Kiera talks to Alec and tells him that she didn’t know that this was his home. He offers to take her back to his set up. She says that it is impressive. She sees her suit and he says that he is almost done fixing her suit. She asks if Roland is involved in anything and brings up Julian. However, Alec says that there is nothing. She scans him and tells her that it is nothing. Carlos asks to see where they see the fertilizer. Julian sees Roland and Carlos going to the barn. A car pulls up to the property. They get the bolt cutters and Roland tells Kiera to drop the matter of the riots that Julian was involved in when she brings it up. He opens the barn to reveal a van with a homemade bomb inside.

Kiera tells the boys that the activists in the revolution are always called murderers. Julian says that they can do this. Dillon moves in and the SWAT team commander is in charge of it. Alec tells the boys that he has a pistol and goes with another guy to get it. The SWAT team leader thinks that Roland is the leader of the hostage taking and thinks that the kids are innocent. Carlos is in bad shape. Kiera manages to call Dillon and tells them that they are planning to use the propane tank as a diversion. However, before she can tell them that Roland is innocent, the phone cuts out.
Alec goes back to the house with the pistol. In the cellar, Kiera tells Carlos that everything is going to be alright. However, it is clear that everything is not. She tells him that he is her friend and gets emotional.
