In the mall, the Chosen work together to break the Mallrats, while in the Gaian camp LEX’s outburst could affect the tribe’s decision on whether they should help the city, and BRAY finally learns the truth about AMBER’s coldness towards him.
Shocked and confused at seeing AMBER alive, BRAY, DAL, LEX and EBONY discuss how she could have survived, but only one person has the answers and she is determined to keep her distance and send them away. Can they convince her to speak to them?
MAY and SALENE agree to attend a Chosen ceremony, much to ELLIE’s disgust; LUKE defies THE GUARDIAN to help TRUDY, while DAL sets off on a journey to discover the truth.
Angry at BRAY’s speech, THE GUARDIAN decrees that he will be executed and that TRUDY will be the one to do it. LEX and EBONY make contact with the Mall Rats, and MAY suggests a new course of action to SALENE.
TRUDY and THE GUARDIAN work together to try and win over BRAY, while ALICE attempts to drive a wedge between them. ELLIE is guilt-ridden over JACK’s transportation, and LEX asks PRIDE for help.
On the hunt for BRAY, EBONY and LEX encounter their mysterious watcher, while back in the mall ELLIE and JACK come up with a dangerous plan to liberate the Mallrats from their Chosen captors.
As the victorious Chosen occupy the mall, TAI SAN’s refusal to acknowledge ZOOT has consequences for the rest of the tribe. Meanwhile EBONY comes to the aid of an injured BRAY and LEX, but they’re not out of the woods just yet.
