Maria calls out Cadena for her plans to deforest many trees on Callisto and how they're directly responsible for the recent extinction Ganymede sea rat. Armed with a grenade filled with the same spores used to terraform Callisto. The terrorists then intended to use Mark as an example of what they'd do to Cadena if she didn't accept their demands. However, their plan fails when Mark knocks the grenade out of the terrorist's hand with the grenade's pin out of it too. Cadena then inhales the gas that spews out of it and transforms into a giant tree. With their situation compromised, the terrorists escape with Mark in arms.

Meanwhile, Maria chastises and reprimands the terrorists who were also her children for their incompetence. On the bright side, Maria informs the kids that she's located the missiles that they need and they'll get them from their father. Sometime later, a bounty is posted on Maria's head, and right when Faye was about to track her ship's location, she spots Ein and is instantly fascinated with him.
