Things continue to go badly for the agents, but smashingly for the AEGIS propaganda machine as Brute, Delilah and especially Randy mow through the blockade. Brute manages to knock one agent backward the length of a football field sending him crashing into the gate of the marine terminal with an unceremonious thud. Delilah gives one more than he bargained for with a good swift kick. Randy, however, puts fear into - beyond the fear experienced from the spiders crawling all over their bodies. Fear of death. Like a gruesome spectre the man with the axe cuts down two agents, spilling their guts onto the cracked roadway. By the time Walker appears to scare them off, they are more than ready to run. Breaking contact in the most unorderly fashion they head south toward the overgrown park, with hope of finding cover in the trees.
On the roof Mister Raith punches one agent, killing him instantly. The others are trapped on the giant rooftop with their helicopter to rescue them. Afraid they make a defensive stance but try to hold back Raith rather than tangling with him.
Behind the fight scene Marduk struggles to pull the group of vagrants to safety...unfortunately his webbing snaps! The entangled humans cannot even run away from the building about to collapse on their heads - which looks like it could happen any second! The falling building teerters and totters leaning heavily to the west. Marduk’s engineering skills tell him that the building will fall and hit the next one, that will hit the next one, and the next one in a cascading wave of destruction.
With only a few seconds until the building finally topples, the entangled civilians look to be done for. Even the agents trapped on the rooftop are now potential victims as they are in the line of falling buildings with nowhere to run. Looking back, Gothm, Randy, Delilah, and Walker see that getting to the civilians will take some time, the entire way is block with helicopter wreckage, barriers, and debris from the falling building.
To top it all off, each hero feels a single raindrop plop on their heads. There is a storming coming. It seems to old adage is true - when it rains, it pours.
