At first, he refuses, but after Bellick kills his cat, he sets fire to the building which houses a part of the escape and frames Bellick for it. Outside, Veronica and Nick narrowly avoid an explosion and hide to give Kellerman and Hale the impression that they died. Meanwhile, the agents kill L.J's mother and step-father, and he is on the run. It is revealed the two agents take orders from the Vice President.
