Erica feigns being held hostage by Eli Cohn. As the news reports of the "hostage" drama, Joe Evans rushes down to where Erica is. A Visitor pretends to be Erica's colleague and chats with Joe Evans, leaving a copy of the layout of the building where Erica is, showing a route into the building. Joe Evans falls for the ploy and enters into the building, only to be captured by Eli Cohn's men. Erica reveals to Joe Evans about the situation. Meanwhile, the Visitors supply the FBI with their surveillance equipment, and the FBI are able to track each and every one of Eli Cohn's men. To buy time, Eli Cohn's people on the ground outside the building capture hostages by threatening to be suicide bombers that they bring into the building.
Hobbes meets with Thomas who tells him to trigger the explosives brought into Eli Cohn's base by the suicide bombers, using a remote control made by the Visitors. Hobbes is forced into compliance because the Visitors have a hold on him through a lady named Sarah.
Eli Cohn realizes that he is unlikely to leave the building alive, so he passes the mantle of leadership of the Fifth Column to Erica. He also introduces John Fierro, one of his most trusted aides, to Erica, and tells her that he has to get out of the building alive. By placing him together with the hostages, Erica and Joe Evans lead the group of hostages and John Fierro out of the building. As they are moving to safety, Hobbes triggers the explosives, causing a fire-fight between the FBI and Eli Cohn's men still in the building.
