Plot

Claire and Burstein manage to revive Cage and take out the shrapnel. Stryker kills a policeman, framing Cage. Cage finds out that he was chosen as an experiment subject long before he was injured in Seagate. He and Claire look at Connors' files and find videos of her, proving that she was the person who chose Cage, upsetting him. The police get angry and get more aggressive to find Cage, with one detective beating a teenage boy.

Dillard shows support for the boy and arranges a ceremony in Harlem's Paradise. Cage threatens Burstein not to replicate the experiment and leaves with Claire and the drive. However, Burstein is revealed to have a copy of the data. In the ceremony, Dillard insists on Cage's fault and the need to arm the police against him. However, her fellow party member, Damon Boone, secretly tells her he knows the truth. Cage and Claire arrive at Harlem's Paradise while Knight arrives too, attempting to arrest Stryker, who shoots her before Cage interrupts and tries to escape with her; but they are surrounded by the mercenaries.
