The Authority confronts Chance and have the Engineer and the Doctor neutralize Chance's defenses. They begin making short work on Viceworld's forces and Chance is then killed by Midnighter. Thereafter, Jack Hawksmoor makes an announcement to Viceworld's residents and guests into leaving the station as his team have primed several warheads to explode throughout Viceworld.
