With his help she managed to escape the Mega Mechs. When she tried to force him out with her shotgun he revealed that he slipped the shells out of the shotgun. He made her get out, which made her ask if he was really going to leave her out her to fend for herself.

Late that night, she light the barrels, which fills up the street with smoke, limiting the Espheni troops sight. She is later saved by Tector, when he kills the Skitter that tries attacking her.

After the food is destroyed in Chinatown, Ben manages to find some tins of food that survived the blast and Weaver discovers they were made in a factory located not far from where they are holed up so they hatch a plan for Pope, Sara, Ben and Maggie to head out and try to scavenge as much food as they can.

Before heading out, Pope and Sara discuss a possible food source in skitters. They decide to roast a skitter leg over the fire, and before they can test it out on a animal Russell cuts off a piece and eats it.

Pope tells Sara that he thinks the two of them would make beautiful babies. During the walk, Sara is stuck from the leftover fog from the Espheni farm, and is unable to be freed. Pope's idea comes to mind that he needs fire to free her, however when Sara tells Pope to go back to get the flamethrower, Pope is hesitant to leave her. Sara convinces him to do so, mentioning that nothing can get to her as they'll get stuck in the cement.
