Kalki has loaded Valentina's energy-body into a missile, planning to use her power to send a lethal negative-energy charge around the world. It seems that he is Arani's father, too.

Harry Stein makes it into the complex, and begins snooping.

A young woman named Rhea Jones arrives in Kansas City. Arani has recruited her for the team.

Josh, Cliff and Arani break their bonds and begin fighting Kalki's men. The missile is launched. Arani fights Kalki while Josh and Cliff meet Stein and compare notes. They destroy the missile, thus saving humanity. Arani kills Kalki by unleashing his demons, which consume him. Valentina returns to her body and all is well.
