Meanwhile, Robert explains to Jane that she isn’t two people; she’s one person. She’s always been one person and she has to accept that. Robert reminds Jane how he and his wife saved her from death. Jane apologizes to Robert for recruiting him into Sandstorm and ruining his life. 

Zapata manages to get in contact with Madeline’s private pilot. The pilot has been ordered to fly Madeline out of the country. He wants ten million before squealing on Madeline’s whereabouts, but Boston figures out he’s been stalling the entire time. 

In a race against time, Jane joins Zapata and the rest of FBI team to find Madeline’s secret location. On top of a rooftop, Madeline is waiting for her helicopter to arrive. Jane and Zapata shoot their way through the hospital to get to her.
