December 2031. The caught traitors has been executed by Peter Ratri. Present day, March 2046, his underling Andrew, along with other men, searches for the cattle children only to be fooled with an empty shelter.
A month has passed since the children escaped and destroyed The Hunting Ground, Goldy Pond, and they are enjoying their lives in their new home, Shelter B06-32. Everyone is given tasks in order to help each other, and everyone is currently living a content life.
While everyone works, Emma, Ray, and Lucas are waiting for their allies to contact them in the "Secret Room."
Seven days prior to the present day, Emma and the children talks about contacting their allies. While there were some doubts, Gilda assured everyone that the shelter was made hidden from outside detection, also there are a couple of dummy shelters that were set up/
Even though it's risky, Emma told them with determination that she wants to make sure if they do have allies or not. And if not, they'll just have to make other plans. She then told them "I must absolutely save them in time," flashing back to Phil and the other relocated Grace Field orphans.
They then went to the "Secret Room," where a telephone lies. After seven days of trying to contact their allies, no one responded.
While they did all that, Andrew and his men are still on the search for the cattle children after leaving the dummy shelter.
While he did that, the telephone in the Secret Room rang, surprising Emma, Ray, Lucas, and Rossi.
The message was in Morse code and Emma gave it to Ray to translate it. The messenger apologized that they cannot meet. They then told the information about Peter Ratri, Minerva's younger brother.
Ray then asked the question about the lock, but was not answered. Instead, they said that they should stay where they and they'll come and see them. After that, the line cuts of.
Somewhere, their cloaked ally told the boys and girls to stay alive.
