Emma and Ray continue their talk from the end of the last episode. Emma reveals that while Isabella has been keeping a close eye on the two of them, it has made her negligent of the other children. As such, over the last month, Don and Gilda have taken the lead in finishing preparations for the escape. At midnight, Ray starts a fire in the house, intending to burn up along with it. Emma manages to save him, and together get all the children to the wall.
Ray asks Emma whether had she given up on the escape, to which the latter denies, as she reciprocates the question to him. As the two started talking about their escape again, Emma brought up the fact that she had further planned on the escape during the past two months since Norman's departure, impressing Ray in the process.
Ray discussed with Emma on how burning the House down is the best way for them to make their escape, the former then showed Emma all the oil cans he had hidden over the past few years, as he proceeded to dump oil all over himself, scaring the wits out of Emma. Ray explained how he has been waiting for the day for him to end his life, as it would serve as a distraction for Isabella to rescue him whilst Emma and the other orphans can make their escape. As the clock chimes midnight, the now twelve-year-old Ray ignited a fire. Emma hastily ran towards Ray.
Isabella left Carol's bed after she falls asleep. The mother then proceeded to her office. When the clock in her room reached midnight, Isabella went to the calender and crossed out 14 January, as she wished Ray a happy birthday. Soon after, a loud scream could be heard coming from the cafeteria. Isabella went after the commotion, as she saw Emma lying on the ground, devastatingly calling out Ray's name. Isabella checked her radar and noticed how Ray is indeed inside the burning fire. The former attempted to extinguish the fire, hoping that she could still retrieve Ray's brain. When Isabella ordered Emma to escape, she turned around and noticed how she already disappeared. Isabella used her radar once again and tried to look for Emma, only to pick up the signal of Emma's transmitter from her severed ear in the bathroom. Isabella picked up the bloody ear, and came to the realization that Emma and the other orphans are indeed making their escape.
Emma held onto what's left of her ear with a bloodied bandage as she went to join the other orphans in the forest. As Don, Gilda, Anna, Thoma, Lani, Yvette, Alicia, Jemima, Chris, Dominic, Rossi, Mark, Nat and Ray reunite with Emma near the wall. Ray was utterly baffled in the current situation, as he ask Don to tell him about the escape. Don enlightened Ray on how he, Gilda and Emma had been getting the older orphans into the escape plan, specifically Anna, Nat, Thoma and Lani.
Ray recalled how moments after the clock struck midnight earlier, Emma had prevented him from burning and killing himself, and slapped him because of it. Thoma and Lani came into the cafeteria and had wrapped meat and Anna's cut hair in Ray's clothes as a decoy. Emma revealed to Ray how months earlier, Norman told Emma of Ray's plan to burn himself and prepared a counter-plan for her, which meant that they were already prepared to escape. As the orphans later evacuated the House, the escapees all made their way to the wall as they prepare their escape. Emma started to hallucinate about Norman, who appeared next to her and encouraged her. Ray stared at all the other escapees, and noticed how the younger ones are not in the group.
Isabella managed to get the communication device (which resembles a suitcase) that reaches out to the premium farms' headquarters. As she stood outside the House, staring at it as it burns to the ground, Isabella started to laugh, as she happily state how she will catch them all of the orphans back. Before Isabella can make her move, Phil appeared behind her as he tugged her dress. The latter was shocked to see the child's presence.
