Things are changing faster than anyone can keep up with. First, Helen's friend and financial backer, Richard Feliz, withdraws his support with an ominous hint at Helen's secret plans. Then, Helen discovers an ally in the former Hollow Earth insurrectionist known as Caleb, who approaches her with a plan to build a new kind of sanctuary for Abnormals, one that will serve as an intermediary step between Hollow Earth and mainstream surface society. She recalls Kate from Hollow Earth to ensure the refugees have what they need, and Kate is hopeful at the thought that she and her Abnormal fiance, Garris, may one day be able to live together on the surface. But Will won't be a part of the realization of this new homeland - Greg Addison has forcibly recruited Will to work for SCIU. Helen lets Will go with no fanfare, almost as if she hoped he would work for the other side. Will is furious that she won't let him in on her grand plan, but his anger doesn't move her to reveal her intentions.
Things are changing for Tesla, too - after being fired as head of SCIU, he found that all of his inventions had been stolen by the government agency. And Biggie, whose loyalty seems still to be suspect, is also swept away in the changing tide - he decides to leave the Sanctuary and live with the other Abnormals. It's a tearful moment for Magnus, but not so for Biggie - he says his goodbye with a stony demeanor.
