At the PRIDE Construction Site, the Runaways prepare to face their parents. Dale Yorkes engages the hostilities by tranquilizing Gert Yorkes' dinosaur, and both Chase Stein and Karolina Dean attack PRIDE in return. Molly Hernandez attempts to help them, but she is hit by a light burst sent by Jonah, who joined the fight with Frank Dean. While Jonah remains deaf to PRIDE's protests urging him not to attack the teenagers, Karolina understands that Jonah is only interested in her and tells her friends to flee, which they reluctantly do.
Karolina remains to fight against Jonah, who displays the same abilities than she does. The duel releases considerable energy which causes electric devices across the construction site to fail. Karolina is eventually captured, and despite Nico Minoru's will to immediately rescue her, the Runaways decide to retreat to safety to discuss their new plan. Karolina is taken to the Church of Gibborim Executive Office, where Jonah reveals to her that he is actually her biological father.
While the Runaways go into hiding in the woods near Los Angeles and resolve to save Karolina from Jonah, PRIDE, minus Leslie Dean, gathers at the Minoru Mansion. Tina Minoru reveals that Leslie was behind the Assassination of Gene and Alice Hernandez. Knowing that they have been fooled by Jonah, PRIDE decides to take actions. Dale and Stacey Yorkes resolve to go and investigate the construction site while Geoffrey and Catherine Wilder intend to ask Karolina in order to locate the teenagers, who they want to put in safety.
In order to go incognito, the Runaways buy new clothes and Alex Wilder tells Gert that they have to leave her dinosaur behind them, which Gert tearfully accepts after an emotional talk with her dinosaur who she calls Old Lace. The Runaways then go to the Timely Coffee and find Vaughn Kaye, a member of the Church of Gibborim. They request Kaye's help in order to release Karolina, but Kaye refuses to believe their story and leaves. Still, the Runaways remain determined to save their friend.
Stein and Hernandez pose as typical homeless teenagers in order to infiltrate the Church's office. They are picked up by Aura and Frances, and while filling in their intake forms, Kaye approaches them and agrees to help them. He takes them to what he believes to be Leslie's private meditation room, enabling Stein and Hernandez to find Karolina. Although Frances and Aura, who discovered them on the run, attempt to stop them, the Runaways are successful and manage to escape from the Church of Gibborim.
Kaye reports this to Leslie, who secretly asked him to help the Runaways. Indeed, Leslie also feels that Jonah betrayed her after she went on the construction site and found out, along with the Yorkeses, that there is an ancient living being in the hole they have dug there. The Yorkeses connect this living being to Jonah's Serum, which they had retrieved earlier, and begin to consider a way of killing Jonah. Meanwhile, the Wilders, who have been humiliated by Jonah when they asked to see Karolina, decide to leave PRIDE and to find Alex on their own.
PRIDE meets once again, this time with Leslie, at the Yorkes Residence. Leslie confirms that she murdered Gene and Alice Hernandez, but also that she knew all along about Jonah having murdered Amy Minoru out of fear that she had discovered PRIDE's secrets. Enraged, Tina threatens Leslie to kill her, but Leslie replies that PRIDE still needs her to kill Jonah, as this has become PRIDE's new objective. Meanwhile, Jonah meets with Frank and assures him that things will become interesting once Victor Stein is back on his feet.
The Runaways retreat in the woods one more time, with Stein and Gert on one side and Nico and Karolina on the other site going further in their relationships. Alex decides to enlist some allies and calls Darius Davis, the leader of the Crips and enemy of Geoffrey, who provides him with a gun and money. The Runaways then go to the Los Angeles Bus Depot, where Gert is reunited with Old Lace. However, as they debate over their new destination, they watch a TV newsflash indicating that they are wanted because of suspected involvement in the death of Destiny Gonzalez. Therefore, the teenagers are forced to run away to avoid arrest.
