Just as Five pulls his chest out of the mud, the group is attacked by a three-headed monstrosity initially mistaken for three alligator heads.
At one point the narrator sees the letter "S" carved in the creatures foot, like a signature. While the group struggles with the creature, Five retrieves a glove with a retractable blade and a pan flute from his chest. He plays the flute and the creature subsides.
When asked if he can put the creature out of its misery, Five says gladly, saying he made the creature. The "S" is an upside down 5. Without warning, he strikes Six in the head, holds Nine underwater and keeps Marina back with telekinesis. He then declares to Seven and Eight that "they should talk.
Eight heroically teleports into the path of Five and is stabbed instead of Nine. Upon Eight's death, Marina develops a new Legacy that allows her to summon and create ice. An icicle appears and she uses her telekinesis to stab out Five's eye, before he flees. Meanwhile, back at the penthouse, Mogadorians land on the roof and rappel into the penthouse. Sam notes it is a relatively small force as if they were not expecting much resistance. They did not expect the comatose Garde to be guarded by their human allies. Bernie Kosar and Malcolm keep them at bay while Sarah and Sam go to get weapons.
More Mogadorians come in, and Sam baits them into the training room by declaring that the girl they are looking for—Ella—is this way. He then turns on the newly restored training software to "insanity" and watches as the room deals with the Mogadorians. Sarah and Sam shoot the stunned Mogadorians and then rejoin Bernie Kosar.

They hear wave two getting ready to come and attack. Bernie Kosar tries to hold them off, but Sam discovers his dying father and is unwilling to leave him. John wakes up from his unending sleep and heals Sam's father before it is too late. Ella wakes up in a strange place. She sees Mogadorians and tries to escape using the Great Book as a weapon. She realizes that she is in a spaceship. He tries to force her to eat and tells her that he used to be an Elder and that he experimented with altering genetics.
He also tells her about how Lorien was controlling everything, and he rivaled it. Then, he puts a binding charm over himself and Ella.
The Mogadorians try to force Ella to read the Great Book by blasting an alarm at her whenever she doesn't. Ella rips the book apart. Eventually, he arrives. Ella is disgusted to note that she is betrothed to the treacherous Number Five. She finds out that Five killed Eight, and is even more upset.
She apologizes to him later telepathically. He responds that he deserved it and that they need to escape.
Ella wakes up later to find Five talking about how Mogadorians were bad. She and Five decide to escape. She finds out that Five was not aware of their betrothal either. She loses consciousness. Ella wakes up dressed formally for the invasion, with a Mogadorian injection of something disgusting where she was stabbed. She sees Number Nine and tells him telepathically to break Ra's staff.
She witnesses Ra talking about how the faithful humans will greet him, and then a human leader denying what he said. She realizes that Number Four is there too. They figure out that the surviving Garde are in Florida, except for one of them, whose dot on the tablet is bouncing everywhere. But Adam suggests going to Ashwood Estates instead of predictably going to Florida. The others agree, Four with a bit of persuasion required. They survey Mogs carrying equipment and kill them.
Adam admits that the General residing at the Estates is his father. Four attacks him, and his shield bracelet is broken. The General and Four wrestles. Adam stabs his father through the back and takes up his father's old sword. Adam uses Mogadorian surveillance to help Seven, Six, and Nine break into the base. Adam hacks a ship and uses its guns to kill all of the Mogadorians.

They see Mogadorians from their boat and kill them. The man who was leading them is frightened and flees the boat. Nine, Seven, and Six find a huge Mogadorian base. They turn invisible and enter it. Nine uses his animal telepathy to tell a beast controlled by the Mogadorians to cause a distraction. It obliges but is killed, but it has given them enough time to make it into a greenhouse. They find Number Five lurking, as well as Number Eight's body. Five stabs a Mogadorian telling him to bring Eight's body to a ship. Six, Seven, and Nine are left with Eight's body.
