As they enjoy a meal made by Marisol's Mother, White reveals that the new regime has access to weapon technology that's on pace with their own and that is intolerable. White proposes that together they will attack Jackie's fortress and then the US military will capture Estacado. He then reveals his resources: a couple of Apache helicopters and a small army.

Jackie, free from The Darkness is overwhelmed by the beauty of the world around him and begins to cry after seeing Marisol's face. He's says that Marisol is beautiful and for that she slaps him. She then proceeds to inject Jackie with the addictive version of Nightfall that was spread around the country by Kirchner, intending to make him easier to interrogate.

After Jackie regains his senses, Sampayo prepares to shoot him. Estacado reveals that he can't undone the damage the Nightfall has done if he gets to the cathedral where the drug is made. Sampayo doesn't believe him, thinking that Jackie will lead them to a trap, while Marisol sees him useful enough to keep him alive. They then travel to the Cathedral with Sampayo staying behind. Together with Marisol, Major White and the resistance fighters they travel to the Cathedral, but not before she puts a suicide vest on Jackie in case he decides to betray them. The group reaches the cathedral and Jackie makes the necessary changes to the Nightfall, so it would cure the addicts in the country.
