Gonzalez, the Geckos, Santanico and Sonja sneak into Greely's Meat Product factory. As the brothers load their weapons, Richie tells Seth he hasn't reached his full potential as he hasn't figured his wayob yet; meaning his extra power. When they arrive at Jacknife Jed's, a man named Vincent is checking the cargo and Santanico is in the back in a heavily frozen area so she won't be detected. As they go through with the heist, it's revealed that Sonja made a deal with Malvado, and Seth shoots her when he finds out.
