Lily breaks her promise and goes down to search for Luke and Holden anyway, without any help. Once Katie wakes up, she hears Simon say “love” in his sleep. She thinks that he’s dreaming of Lily, and obviously dislikes the idea of that. But the next thing out of his mouth is “Katie.” Katie smiles, and lies down next to him.

Just then, a guard warns Dante that Lily is coming there to search for Luke and Holden. Dante forces them to hide in a corner, just as Lily rushes in frantically calling out to both her son and husband.
