What a chapter! As some had speculated, turns out it wasn't one our buddies getting shot. It was DILF/Ratman/Cal/the person Soph made us think was super important but wasn't. We think.
Lauren quickly grabs a gun and shoots a threat, finally seeing who it was that saved them: none other than our resident grumpy cat, Lukas Randall 😍, looking badass in a helmet. Lune and Soleil head their separate directions, and Kym begins firing.
At long last (a suspicious long last?), the APD bursts in through the front door. A dispatcher gets shot and nitro is being thrown.
Kieran urges Lauren to leave, and whilst doing so, sees blood on her face and freaks out, touching her face. Are we melting? We are melting? Did Lauren also have to put her hand on his shoulder to shove him out of the way and save his life? Yes, she did. Did she also keep her hand there for a bit.? Why, yes to that, too. Lauren and Kieran decide to go stop the nitro grenade throwers, but before they can, Lukas and Kym get attacked by PS members bursting in through the roof. Lukas gets shot and falls atop Kym. They are quickly surrounded by PS members aiming to kill.
Lauren runs back to shoot the PS members, but gets shot herself. Upon seeing her fall, Will closes his eyes helplessly while Kym, a fighter to the end, struggles to get the gun out of her face.
We think all is lost until we see someone dispatch 5 quick headshots, eliminating all 5 PS members, standing in a cloud of dust.
And who is the person so proficient at using a gun who saved the lives of Lauren's friends? The gun-denying, wounded mandarin Kieran White.
