Plot Summary Edit
Stanton and Sergeant John Adebayo escort you and Lawrence out of the base with no plans for any of you to return.
Stanton knows that you and Lawrence can't be disclose any classified information, but asks you to tell her anything you can. Charlie says she deserves to know anything you can reasonably share. Adebayo notices men in body armor following you two miles off, but says he's from the area, and should be able to lose them.
Making Good Time Edit
Adebayo says you're making good time, and he thinks you've lost your pursuers. Stanton takes the opportunity to question Lawrence about the package and how it came into his possession. He tells everyone he was working under a Professor Emmanuel at a university lab in Inverness. The professor handed Lawrence the device and told him to get it to the lab in Edinburgh "even if you have to walk." Charlie points out that The Burn weren't thrown off your trail, and are now heading you off.
A Burn Edit
Adebayo leads the group to a rock where he knows a boat will be tied, and you escape down the river. He says that in a mile or two, there will be some rapids.
Don't Divide The Party Edit
Stanton gives instructions on how to deal with getting thrown from the boat by the rapids moments before the boat hits a rock. Lawrence can't swim, but Stanton saves him from drowning. If you don't find warm clothes soon, she says, hypothermia will kill you before The Burn can.
Is'nae Far Edit
Adebayo's knowledge of the terrain leads them toward a nearby shelter with tins of food and a fire and warm blankets. Stanton pulls a gun on everyone, and demands you walk slowly away from the cottage.
Stanton reveals that she knows from Adebayo's personnel file that he's not from the area at all, and that he's been leading them into a trap. She tells Lawrence to look at the cabin, and he sees eight people in body armor leaving it. Adebayo says that the human race is in terrible danger and that you can't take the devices to Edinburgh. Technology is being infiltrated, he says, and it makes us weak. He's with New Tomorrow, and says that their aims align with The Burn's for now. He goes for his gun, and Stanton shoots him.
