Julius asks would she die for him, after claiming she would, he fires an arrow into her. He then tells Scab to burn all the buildings. As they do so, Theo and Flesh lead the community away, Theo wonders where they go next, Flesh says as far away from Eden as possible.

The next morning, Mohamad is prepared to leave but Vanessa is troubled, she wonders how long it's been since he's been to the camp and how he could be so sure that Sheema is still there. Vanessa feels like she's searching for Dylan without having a plan, her gut is saying that Dylan isn't there, Mohamad can't believe that she's backing out on him, he explains that he can't go traveling thousands of miles to Denver while knowing his sister could be half a day away. Vanessa says she might be or she might not, but it's better than nothing for him.
