Synopsis for "Survival of the Species, Part 4: Fight or Flight"
At the IO Archive in New York, FBI agents Clark and Ludlum search the IO database and learn about the Daemonites, Kherubim, and the Puritans. IO security is then ordered to kill them. At Halo, Olympia Atreidae reveals herself to be a Daemonite. The Puritans escape with Emp and Warblade as captives. Milos Tsabo, Marlowe’s business partner, enters amidst the destruction, informs the WildC.A.T.s he has taken sole control of Halo, and orders them to leave. Minus Colt and Zealot, the team departs with Max, Mythos, Olympia, and Sister Eve joining to pursue the Puritans back to their headquarters at Sector 52. Upon arrival, the WildC.A.T.s infiltrate the base and engage the Puritans. Olympia briefly possesses their leader, Elijah Sterling, to get the team into the base’s inner facilities. Just as the Puritans begin to overwhelm them, Jeremy joins the fight, revealing himself as Maul. Using a neural sample extracted from Emp, Puritan scientists activate a time machine. The WildC.A.T.s are too late as de Medici’s strike team goes back in time.
