Meanwhile, the joint American-Russian mission to divert the asteroid is proceeding well. That changes when Amanda gets a package from an unknown source suggesting that Atlas deliberately crashed a meteor on Russian territory. Her news site publishes the story, the White House denies it, and the Russians pull out of the joint mission.
Because of the White House denial, Amanda’s editor demands that she get a source to go on the record about Atlas. She gets nowhere and even resorts to telling Jillian that the kiss she shared with Liam meant nothing – to her. This is unfortunate as Liam and Jillian were repairing their relationship as she returned to work for Darius Tanz.
Meanwhile, we find out that the president of the United States is unwell and therefore incapable of trying to entice the Russians back to the joint mission. So the government, in an act of desperation, seize what it thinks is the EM drive to launch the gravity tractor to divert the asteroid. However, Harris, who disagrees with this move, warns Darius and Liam in time for a fake EM drive to be substituted. The government launches the gravity tractor and sees the mission immediately shot out of the sky with a missile launched from a Russian submarine.
While this is happening, Darius prepares the real EM drive to launch another gravity tractor from his private launch facility. But first he uses Liam to contact Amanda for a deal. If she will put Darius in touch with the Resists hacker group, he will go on the record about Atlas, thus providing her a source. She agrees, and Darius makes a proposal to Resist. If they will take down the Russian space radar tracking system, he will give them a million dollars. A mysterious, remote leader of the group agrees to the proposition.
Darius and Liam launch the gravity tractor with the EM drive, The EM drive fires successfully and proceeds on its rendezvous with the asteroid.
Finally, Darius’ people crack the attempted assassin’s phone. The man, who once belonged to Harris’ old Air Force squadron, took his orders from the White House, It looks like the hit on Grace was arranged at the highest levels of power.
