Plot

After reuniting, the Inhuman Royal Family decides to find Crystal, who is on Oahu as well. However, they receive a call on Locus' Com-Link from Auran: the leader of the Attilan Royal Guard informs them that she holds Evan Declan and Sammy hostages at the Declan Research Facility Lab and that she will kill them if Black Bolt does not come to the lab. After discussing, the Royal Family decides to split up: Karnak and Gorgon go to the lab to rescue Declan and Sammy while Black Bolt and Medusa leave with Louise Fisher to find Crystal. Meanwhile, Maximus sends backup to Auran, including Bronaja's father Loyolis.

Crystal, Dave and Lockjaw return to Dave's barn, where Audrey tells them that Lockjaw is exhausted by their getaway and that his recovery will take longer. Before leaving, Audrey tries to take a picture of Crystal to report her to the police, but Crystal burns her phone, prompting her to leave thoug Dave warns Crystal that this will have consequences.

Crystal struggles to find a way to signal her presence to her family and ultimately figures out that the best way of doing so is generating powerful lightnings so that they will notice her. Dave agrees to drive her to some high point of the island to do so. While waiting for her family, Crystal talks with Dave about their time together and the two share a kiss. Immediately after, Medusa, Black Bolt and Fisher find Crystal. Together, they head back to Dave's barn to pick Lockjaw. However, Audrey called the police and brought them to the barn as well. While Dave and Fisher manage to play for time, the Inhumans escape.

Karnak and Gorgon arrive at the lab and Karnak expressed his doubts about their chances of success as his powers have diminished, but Gorgon reassures him by stating that their foes do not know about Karnak's weakened condition. They infiltrate the lab and knocks unconscious most of the Inhumans, including Flora, Loyolis and Mordis. Karnak releases Declan and Sammy while Gorgon fights and eventually defeats Auran, who surrenders.

As all the rebels are being tied up, Mordis wakes up and refuses to be imprisoned again, threatening to unleash his powers and kill them all. Gorgon chooses to sacrifice himself to save the others by collapsing the facility. The Royal Family reaches the area soon after and Karnak informs them of Gorgon's death.

On Attilan, Tibor informs the Royal Family loyalists that Maximus is becoming paranoid just as he is willing to send all the Inhumans fight the Royal Family one by one to keep the throne. Tibor insists that Maximus must die. After being warned that there is a conspiracy against him, Maximus summons Bronaja to be provided with another vision of his future. Bronaja tells him that he saw Maximus talking with Tibor and that he thinks Tibor is trustworthy. However, Maximus figures out the assassination attemps and executes Tibor before seizing the rebels and ordering Bronaja to pledge his loyalty to him.
