After debating on who may or maybe the next Utopian, Brandon asks Chloe to be around more, and she says she will think about it.
As for Grace and Sheldon, they argue about the Code. Grace believes it is time for change and thinks Sheldon is trying to control everything. She states the young kids feel unheard on something that does not make sense anymore.
Petra Small then tells Brandon that she is thinking of leaving the Union as she does not believe in the Code anymore. Brandon admits he has had doubts over the Code as well. Especially more recently, but he remembers what his father told him; that “the Code was not meant to make our lives easier. You have to care about people. About this world”.
In 1929, while on the island, Sheldon and the crew make their way through the forest of the island. Sheldon sees a pattern on a tree that’s similar to his drawings. After exploring more, they see some foggy mountains in the distance. Walter is scared and wants everyone to go back to the ship. Suddenly, an explosion occurs in front of them, and a tree shoots up to stop them. Sheldon then mentions to everyone else that the island will not let them leave.
Tensions rise, and Walter continues to proclaim that he wants to leave, so Sheldon tells him to go. Grace tells him they have no choice but to keep ongoing.
As they continue to make their way towards the mountains, they are hit by a sandstorm, and they have to stick together to fight it. When they reach safety, the brothers keep on arguing. Walter sobs and blames the death of their father on Sheldon. He then states they should have never expanded the company. Sheldon tries to calm him down, but he wants to keep moving.
In the present, Walter tells the real Blackstar that he’s going to go into his clone’s brain. He wants to know if the villain is in contact with George Hutchence, but Blackstar denies any contact.

In 1929, the group finally reaches an enclave, but there does not appear to be a way through.t Sheldon refuses to believe it. As Walter gets angry, they are suddenly shrouded by a big wall above them, and they are locked in. Richard gets angry and blames Sheldon for this, and fights him. Grace sees two skeletons that look like they have killed each other. She believes that the island is testing them because ever since they’ve gotten off the boat, all they’ve done is fight. She also notices the skeletons are a group of six, just like they are. Sheldon states the island wants them to get through adversity, so there must be a way out of this.
When Sheldon and George touch the wall, white and purple patterns appear before them. The rest of the crew touch the wall together. However, when Walter touches the wall, nothing happens. Grace tells Sheldon that they need to unify as brothers for it to work fully. The brothers unite, and the wall begins to open, showing a beam of light as it does. They then walk through the gap that has opened up. Out of nowhere, Walter and Sheldon’s father appears, but he does not look menacing this time, and it’s not part of Sheldon’s imagination because Walter can see him too. Their father tells them that they have completed the ordeal while suffering unthinkable losses and prevailing. Other people appear as well and echo Chester’s sentiments and call the group “worthy”.
Suddenly, there’s a high-energy blast, and the captain who is on the ship looks concerned with his crewmates. However, as they look in the distance, they see the superheroes in the sky.
In the present, Walter and Raikou work together to enter the clone’s mind. Distorted voices overlap each other, and Sheldon asks what he sees. Walt struggles and yells as he falls to the floor.
