Matti then laments that everything was ruined now and that it was all over.
However Dina assures him that it wasn't over yet, with Matti then exclaiming that she was right as they hadn't been shot yet.

Dina then tells Matti and Alona that they should try to be optimistic, noting that the computer Alona had been talking about was just across the room from them, with Alona confirming it. Dina then says that they'd just have to find a way of untying themselves and then get to it, then exerting that it wasn't impossible.
Arik then walks by saying just in case, walking over to the control panel and shooting it dead, and then walking off jeeringly saying ta-ta to the kids. After that, Matti asks Dina whether she was still optimistic about it, as Dina struggles to get free from the ropes. In the Cave, Marcus is watching over Naomi in her stasis pod, asking how his beauty was.
Marcus then explains that while Naomi didn't realize it just yet, but that he was going to awaken her that day, revealing that he had already been reducing the amount of anesthetics within her stasis pod, in order to prepare her to come out of her trance state and that he would then give her one little shot and that then Naomi would be back with them.

In the main corridor of the Cave, Judy has arrived and asks Marcus where he kept disappearing to, with Marcus then covering up by revealing that he had a few last minute preparation to make within the engine room. Ze'ev then arrives in the Cave, with Judy asking him whether he had talked with their employer, and about their payment.

Judy then notices Marcus' face, expressing that she didn't like the face that he was making, however Marcus reveals that it was nothing serious, explaining that it was a little cloudy above the earthquake zone. Confused, Ze'ev asks what that had to do with anything, with Marcus then explaining that the clouds could mess with the satellite's accuracy, adding that it'd be a shame to risk it.
Concerned, Ze'ev steps forward asking how long it would delay their plans, with Marcus then notifying him that the clouds would pass in a little over an hour. However Judy expresses that she wouldn't be able to be there at said time. Ze'ev then asks Judy what she had meant, with her then revealing that she'd be attending her son; Daniel's championship basket ball game. Unimpressed, Ze'ev asks what championship it was, asking whether she was kidding him, but Judy expresses that she wasn't. Just then Marcus reveals that the game would finish in 3 hours and therefore it would be perfect for their plan.
In response, Ze'ev asks why that'd be the case, with Marcus then explaining that the weather conditions would be perfect and that the victory celebrations would be able to cover up any of the energetic side-effects; being buzzing noises and quakes, then asking Ze'ev whether he'd mentioned that already. Grudgingly, Ze'ev agrees exerting that the zero hour would be at the end of the game and that he wanted no more postponements for their plan, as he sat down.
At the gym, Robbie is watching the Eagles basket ball team executing their jogging exercises for the game, just as Natalie arrives on the scene. She asks her brother what had happened to him, with Robbie then revealing that some of the Ravens had executed a chemistry experiment.

Robbie then reveals that he was pretty sure he'd seen someone who had looked like his sister amongst the Raven students.
Natalie then asks her brother whether there was anyone who had looked just like her at the Greenhouse, with Robbie expressing that she'd ran away when he entered the room, with all of them having ran away. Pretending to be surprised, Natalie says really with Robbie then sarcastically saying that he had hoped nothing bad happened to them. In the changing rooms, Gershon is pepping the team.
Gershon expresses to the team that basket ball could be a cruel game; being that players busted their butts all season long, but that in the end one game would decide it all, meaning that if they managed to lose that game, everything else they'd have done would mean nothing, concluding that in which case he wanted to see blood on the court today, with sweat, tears and a trophy, then telling the team to chant it.
Daniel then begins to get the chant started; chanting "blood, sweat, tears and a championship trophy", with the team then repeatedly chanting it as they hit the air with their fists, with Gershon joining in as well. The team then gets up, while still chanting, centering their fists in the middle and raising them, while chanting "Go Eagles", before heading out onto the court.
In the crowd of the game, Ellali has just come off of the phone, with Iftach asking her what was up, with Ellali then expressing she had a bad feeling. Iftach then assures Ellali that Guri was a big boy and that he was there at home and that she was there at the game, but Ellali then notes that boy was the key word. Natalie then arrives and sits down next to Sophie in the seats below.
Natalie then expresses that she had a bad feeling, with Iftach then telling her that she wasn't the first to say that. Ellali then asks Natalie what had happened, with Natalie then revealing that she had talked with her brother, but that he had an arrogant glint in his eye like he knew something they didn't know.

Iftach then exerts that the three of them were meant to check in every hour on the hour and that the last time they'd texted to him was when they were on their way to the Space Agency and that they still had 3 minutes before they needed to start worrying. Back at the Israeli Space Agency, the guard is making use of one of the Louie's, calling it cool.
Dina then orders the guard to get his filthy hands off of her Louie, as Matti expresses that their friends were counting on them and that now there wasn't anyone around to stop the conspiracy.

The guard then sends the text and closes the Louie, expressing that he loved it. Back at the game, Iftach receives the text, assuring him that everything was fine and as such there was no need to worry.
Ellali, unconvinced by the text, then asks Iftach when the last he had heard Matti use the word dope was, but Iftach just brushes it off, guessing that Matti had picked up the word from Dina.

Matti then asks Dina what she wanted them to do, with Dina expressing she needed them to help her get over to the computers. Matti then asks Dina what she was going to do, with Dina then just asking them to trust her again. Matti assures her that he did, but wanted to know what she was going to do over at the computers.

In the crowd, Iftach expresses to Ellali that he had known how nerve-racking it was to wait like that, but Ellali expresses that it wasn't just that and that she was also worried about her father's current condition.
Ellali then calls her friend; Meshi, expressing that it was her. Back at the Agency, Matti, Dina and Alona are attempting to wheel themselves over to the computer, with Dina steadily knocking a chair into place at the computer. As Dina bends over to take the unit apart, Matti warns her to be careful as she could shocked.

Back at the Space Agency, the guard is asking Dina, Alona and Matti why they had moved, with Dina covering up by saying that they were bored and that the view from there was just too monotonous.
The guard then sarcastically calls it funny, but Dina expresses that they were serious and that they were actually going nuts in there, asking the guard to get them some cards, suggesting they played Crazy 8's, but Matti notes that the guard didn't look like a Crazy 8's kind of guy and that he probably liked to play War. The guard then jeeringly remarks that the kids wanted to play War, while holding up his gun.
However, Dina asks the guard not to, with him then lowering his gun, remarking that that was what he had thought, calling them crybabies. The guard then remarks that it was too bad the kids hadn't been taught how to shut their mouths at the Greenhous, with Dina then saying that they had been taught how to identify losers. Irritated, the guard gets up asking Dina what she had called him.
Dina then re-iterates that she had called the guard a loser and that he was such a loser that there was a picture of him next to the word "loser" in the dictionary.

Daniel then heads over to Gershon and asks him to put Alfie in the game, with Gershon then asking Daniel if he had meant for Alfie to be his substitute.
