Ryan then asks Hayley whether she'd really been there that entire time, with Hayley nodding her head and saying that she thought so. Ryan then looks at her daughter and calls her a sweet girl.
Ryan then asks Hayley how Alex was doing, with Hayley assuring her that he was fine, adding that both she and him had just found out that Ryan was indeed alive and that no one had known Ryan was contained there, not even their father. This confuses Ryan, who then asks why Marcus hadn't told Carter about the ordeal, but Hayley then reveals that Marcus wasn't able to do so, as he was trying to protect her.

Carter then attempts to ring them, just as Eric arrives on the premise, advising him against his decision.
Eric asks him what was up, with Carter then eyeing up his baseball bat. He says hi to Eric and Perry, asking them what was going on, before attempting to take the two of them out. Perry is then quick to pin Carter down on the couch, as Eric commends him on his work. Perry then ponders how stupid Carter was, before walking off.

Parker then walks up to Daniel and tells him that they'd take the other team down in overtime.
Just then, at the top of the bleachers Jason gets a call from Kyle, walking out of the court. Seeing this, Brooke makes the excuse to Judy that she had to go to the bathroom, getting up and racing after her brother. As Jason approaches the exit, Brooke catches up to him, begging him to stop.
However, Jason tells her that it wasn't really a good time, with Brooke then revealing to him that she knew where he was going and what he was up to. Back outside the lab, Leo and Aspen are finally able to pull the planks off of door. Jackie and Max then come out, with Jackie exclaiming thank god, as Leo asks them whether they were ok.

Max asks him what it was, with Jason revealing it to be Emma's new mobile number, then telling Max to head back to his laptop, as he'd turn the servers back on himself.
Jason then takes his seat, with Max heading off. In the Cave, Kyle tells Marcus to initiate the countdown, with Marcus then beginning to say that Judy hadn't arrived back yet, but Kyle cuts him off, asking him not to test him, beckoning Marcus on to do it. Just then the magnetite begins to spark, as Marcus begins the countdown. At the Woods household, Eric and Perry have Carter tied up.
Eric switches on the news, for Carter to see what was about to happen and telling him that he wanted him to have the best seat in the house. Eric then explains that the last thing Carter was going to see was the little earthquake that Eric and his partners had prepared, mentioning that the house would then be blown up, as Perry prepares the explosives. Back in the Cave, Ryan believes that this was all her fault.
Ryan then goes on to explain that she was the one who had managed to discover the link between the magnetite and seismic activity, then adding that it had been her goal to prevent earthquakes from happening. Hayley then states that the conspirators had found a way to reverse the effects of the magnetite. Back at the Woods household, Eric is beginning to taunt Carter.
Eric remarks that if Carter had opened Ryan's letter, before he burnt it, he may of known about her classified earthquake research.

Eric then finally states that their lesson that day, was that if your wife left you a letter before she died, read it. At the FBI headquarters, David has managed to receive the call from Parker and is listening to what Eric was saying through the answer machine. In Max's computer lab, Max has managed to get back in contact with Emma, who expresses how much she had missed them.
Max tells Emma that he knew, but expresses that they were running out of time. Emma then gets to it and explains that she had set up a crypto bypass within the system so he could circumvent the encryption process, before asking him whether he could see it on-screen. Max then assures her that he saw it, before Aspen asks them how that'd stop the bad guys.
Back in the Cave, Ryan tells her daughter that once the satellite was online it'd stop the magnetite by interfering with the magnetite's magnetism, once it had detected it and as such it would automatically shut down their system. Just then Kyle gets a call on his mobile, with him then assuring the Client that they had less than a minute left, before it starts.
Kyle lets the Client know that the Richter scale had been set to 8.4. Back in the computer lab, Leo has rung NASA, telling them that he needed to talk with Brandon Thomas, then identifying himself as Leo from the Greenhouse. Leo then asks NASA to let Brandon know that his satellite was about to come back online, with Max then asking what was taking so long.
Emma suggests that there must of been a delay due to the fact that they were interfering with the VPN network that they were using. The progress bar for the connection, continues to fill, as Emma tells Max that there was a possibility it may not work, while in the Cave, Marcus decides to take a stand. He gets up and hits Kyle in the face, trying to take him down.
Kyle then gets his security guards to hold Marcus in place, with Kyle then tossing Marcus down on the floor in an unconscious state in front of a worried Hayley.

From the cell, Hayley asks what had just happened, with Ryan then guessing that the satellite must of come back online, then hugging her daughter, as the pair realizes that Hayley's friends had managed to stop it. Back in the lab, Jackie is on the phone to Brooke, notifying her about the fact that they'd done it, adding that she'd never guess how they were able to get Emma's number.
Brooke expresses her surprise at the fact that her brother had helped them, just as Coach Davies instructs his team to keep their heads up. Brooke then races over to Sophie, notifying her that they'd accomplished their mission, embracing Sophie with a hug, as the coach continues to beckon his team to move up. Sophie then proceeds to give Alex and Daniel the go-to in order to allow them to win finish the game.
While running, Alex lets Daniel know that they had done it, with Daniel then telling Alex to set him up a screen and let him do the rest. Alex then assures him that he had him, while taking his place at the end of the court. Daniel then passes the ball to Parker, who then passes it back to Daniel at the opposing team's end of the court. Daniel then makes his shot and scores the net. The buzzer then sounds, with the crowd erupting in cheer.
The coach and the cheerleaders then head onto the court to celebrate with the rest of the Eagles players, as Judy leaves the scene. At the exit to the court, Brooke stops Judy before she could leave, with Judy telling her to give Daniel all of her love, as she really had to go. Brooke then informs Judy that she wasn't updated on their situation, with Judy then confused, asking Brooke what she was talking about.
Brooke then clarifies for Judy, mentioning the earthquake that Judy had been planning with her cohorts, then revealing that it wasn't going to occur, apologizing and then mockingly saying that she guessed it just wasn't meant to be. Brooke then heads off, leaving Judy in shock.
Brooke then heads back to the court, to celebrate with the rest of the Eagles, telling Alex that it was all over and that the police would be there any minute, with Alex about to see his mother. The two of them then embrace for a hug, just as Judy calls for her son. Daniel then cautiously heads over to meet his mother under the bleachers, asking her what she wanted.
Judy tells her son that they had to head off then, but Daniel is quick to say that he wouldn't be going anywhere and especially not with her. In response, Judy tells him that she needed him to show him some respect, with Daniel then questioning it, asking what he owed her respect for, revealing that he knew what she did to Brooke and that he knew all about her plan.
However, Judy then just bluntly tells him that he knew nothing and that it had been her fault, because she had been hiding too many things from him. Curious, Daniel asks what things she hadn't told him, with Judy then revealing that she was an agent and worked for the government. But Daniel shows that he didn't believe her, asking her when she had become a government agent, with Judy stating that it had been since he was born.
Judy then explains that the quote on quote plan, her son had been talking about was actually a top-secret and highly classified operation, but Daniel then shakes his head in disbelief at the fact that his own mother had still been lying to him, then asking how many people would of died during the earthquake his mother would of created. As Daniel backs away, Judy tries to get him to believe that she had done it for him.
Daniel then tells his mother not to bring him into it, with Judy then quickly telling Daniel that they should head off and that she'd explain everything later after they'd left. Daniel then attempts to walk off, but Judy begs him to stop, admitting that he was right that she'd lied to him and that she had made a lot of bad decisions and that it didn't matter why.
Judy then expresses to her son that if she didn't leave then, she'd spend the rest of her life in prison, asking him whether that was really what he wanted, while continuing to beg him. Judy then adds that Daniel was the only person she had in the world, then asking him to go with her again. In response, Daniel tells his mother to runaway, but states that he was staying put, then walking off as his mother called after him.
In the Cave, Hayley looks down at the unconscious Marcus, saying that he had saved them, with Ryan then saying that she knew. Just then they see Kyle and one of his security guards, carrying a large bomb. Seeing them, Hayley ponders what they were up to, before then seeing Kyle smiling and asking why he was doing so, as he was going to rot in jail for the rest of his life.
Kyle then remarks that he didn't think that'd be the case, revealing that he'd just wired a time bomb to the magnetite, adding that the explosion would destroy the entirety of the Greenhouse and that by the time they were able to clear the debris, he'd be far away from their location, then jeeringly telling Hayley to enjoy her reunion with her mother, looking at his watch and notifying them that they 2 and a half minutes to catch up, then winking at them and heading off, leaving the bomb ticking.
