MJ #3 is lying on a bed while a nurse and Grey watch over him.
Michael enters that church and goes and sits in the first pew. A Reverend enters a side door and walks to the podium and places some paperwork there. He sees Michael and walks over to him. Michael tells him that he has a question that he needs answered. ?When will the end of the world happen,? Michael asks. The Reverend tells him that he believes that the end is near and that it has already started.
The Reverend reaches behind the pew and grabs one of the Bibles. He turns the pages to the back of the book. ?And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gather together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone,? the Reverend read. The Reverend reads this to help Michael understand the severity of what is to come. Michael asks about the atheists. The Reverend tells him that there truly aren?t any, and that everyone believes in something. The important thing to know is which side you will be on. Good or Evil, but most people don?t know which is which and they are internally conflicted, because the line is not clear.

The MIB?s tell him that MJ #3 will fill him in when they get to the rendezvous point. Further in the distance, Michael can see large masses of tanks and soldiers moving in the same direction ass them. Michael?s car passes through the military formations and arrives at the rally point just a few miles ahead.
Michael gets out of his car and walks over to a large trailer being towed by a 4×4 truck. MJ #3 exits the trailer as Michael approaches. MJ #3 informs Michael that after he left the mountain base, other secret facilities were being taken over by the Grey?s. Fearing danger to his own life, MJ #3 left the mountain base, and as he did the Grey?s began to take over that facility as well. MJ #3 and Michael enter the trailer.
The trailer has several workstations inside. Civilians monitor the military radio net and coordinate with tank Commanders.
MJ #3 goes on to tell Michael that the other facilities are slowly coming back under military control and the Grey?s are starting to flee. The mountain base is the last facility that needs to be taken back. While talking, a civilian staff member interrupts and tells them that five flying objects are being tracked and heading their way. As they watch the objects get closer, a sudden EXPLOSION takes place outside and rocks the trailer. Everyone runs out of the trailer to see what happened. They see the five objects continue to fly toward the mountain base. A soldier runs up to Michael and informs him that one of the craft fired on their tanks. No one was killed.
MJ #3 orders helicopters to chase the aircrafts and to shoot them down.
Five helicopters with side mounted rockets chase after the aircrafts. Two of the aircrafts break away from the other three and divert the helicopters attention. A missile is fired from a helicopter and shoots down one of the crafts immediately. A second missile is fired at the next craft, but misses. The craft moves toward the helicopter causing it the clip its propellers on the craft. The helicopter crashes to the ground. Another missile is fired and hits the craft. The craft stays in the air for a minute trying to maintain altitude and control.

On the floor at Blonde?s feet are five Grey bodies. Michael walks around to the door of the room and opens it slowly. Blonde tells him that the Grey?s were coming after him so he had to kill them. Blonde informs Michael that he aware of what is going on and that the ships outside are for him. Michael wants to know why the ships fired on the military if they were coming to get Blonde. Blonde believes it is because the humans are working with the Grey?s.
He explains that the Grey?s and Blonde?s are not together and are competing for the earth. They both want the planet, yet neither side is currently in the position to act, but within Michael?s lifetime that will all change. He alludes to the future war the planet will be involved in, and asks Michael which side he will be on.
Blonde gets up to leave and Michael follows him down the corridor.
EXT. MOUNTAIN BASE, (Night)
Blonde walks outside the entrance to the base. All the power of the military is focused on him. Michael rushes out of the base and tells them to hold their fire. A beam of light from one of the balls of light cover Blonde. When the light goes out, Blonde is gone.
