Charlie and other street urchins violently rob a homeless man. Homeland Security is mobilized to find the Host attacked in their bloc, which stands to be destroyed in retaliation. The Host is taken to Eckhart’s hideout where the technologists try to learn from it, even while the bloc is attacked from above. Maddie takes the children to the Green Zone and safety at the Burgess home, but Bram sneaks away and brings Mr Carson to the tunnel. Jennifer identifies Eckhart and gives Will a head-start to save Katie. He warns them that Homeland is coming and Broussard allows them five minutes to learn what they can, but Katie removes shielding so a signal from the Host’s suit gets out, forcing them to flee as drones descend. Snyder tries to make a deal with Nolan to save the bloc and get himself a modest job in the Transitional Authority. The Host is carried out in a shroud, and Snyder gives Will the transit pass his daughter had refused, urging him to use it quickly. As Will heads into Santa Monica, Snyder is detained by Lagarza, Bram and Carson are captured under the wall, and Katie returns to an empty house.
