In a flashback, moments before their death, Gene and Alice Hernandez call Dale and Stacey Yorkes and tell them that the rock samples they took from the PRIDE Construction Site display strange properties, raising their suspicions towards Jonah's true intentions. Once the call is ended, Gene and Alice discover that their are locked in their lab and find an explosive device. Before they can run away with their daughter Molly, who is playing with the rock samples, the bomb detonates, killing Gene and Alice. Molly miraculously survives the blast while Leslie Dean leaves and informs Tina Minoru of what she did.
In the present, the Runaways have to deal with the fact that Chase Stein destroyed Alex Wilder's laptop containing the video showing PRIDE's first sacrifice, meaning that they have nothing they can use to arrest their parents. Although they stand divided, Gert Yorkes incites them to go together to a dance held by the Atlas Academy. Later, Molly returns from Montebello and reveals to her friends that she found a video tape left to her by her parents.
The Runaways watch the recording, in which Gene and Alice warn Molly about what the PRIDE is up to, stating that it could cause massive damage across the whole California. Facing such a threat, the Runaways agree to reconcile and decide to stop their parents, using the dance as a pretense to regroup before going into action.
Meanwhile, Robert and Tina Minoru drive to the PRIDE Construction Site, where they join the other members of PRIDE. Jonah explains that the site will now be managed by the Church of Gibborim and activates the Nemo Industrial Drilling Machine, initiating the final phase of the dig. Jonah then returns to the Church of Gibborim Executive Offices, where Frank Dean waits for him. Frank, who has been told of what the Runaways have discovered by his daughter Karolina who trusted him, warns Jonah about the teenagers.
Before going to the dance, Nico Minoru retrieves the phone of her deceased sister Amy and informs Wilder about the anonymous message sent to Amy moments before she died. The teenagers then go the dance, where Stein and Yorkes begin discussing about how they feel towards each other. They then go in a separate room and begin dancing and kissing each other, eventually making love. As they go out of the room, they stumble on Nico and Karolina, who just shared a kiss.
While the Runaways drive to the PRIDE Construction Site, Jonah gathers PRIDE. Thanks to what Frank told him, Jonah reveals to PRIDE that their children know about their secret activities and confronts them about their recent choices: not informing him when Victor Stein was dying, trying to send Molly away to protect her and the Yorkeses keeping his serum. Jonah warns PRIDE that he will no longer tolerate their disobedience and asks them whether they know where their children are. Thus, PRIDE discover that the Runaways are headed to the construction site. Jonah is also alerted after Carl, left in charge of the site, calls Frank to tell him that the Runaways are here.
The Runaways enter the construction site and begin sabotaging PRIDE's operations. As Nico tries to use the Staff of One to fill the massive hole left by the drill with a sandstorm, the Staff is taken away from her by Tina, who arrives on the site with the rest of PRIDE. The parents try to convince their children that they only want their welfare, but the Runaways refuse to listen to them. Karolina removes her Church of Gibborim Bracelet, revealing her powers much to Leslie's shock, who claims that she feared it.
