Nicte comes out and says that Alder killed all of those people in Liberia. The President is intrigued by what Nicte has to say and asks to speak to her.

They go to Alder’s office. The President calls Alder out on her lapses in judgment and the fact that she has “puppeted” her in the past.

The President clarifies that no one will ever know that Alder was the cause of The Spree, but now that they have Nicte, Alder will step down.

As the girls walk around the campus, they notice that a lot of girls are crying. M tells them that Alder is stepping down. When Tally asks why she is told it is because they brought in Nicte.

Tally tells M that this isn’t the whole story.

On her own, Tally goes to talk to Nicte. She tells Nicte that after she is killed, Alder is stepping down. Nicte always knew that this story ended with her death.

Nicte also tells Tally that the whole system needs to change. They need to band together to fight the real enemy.
