Last in series:
Faced with the greatest challenge of their lives, the team fight not only to save one of their own, but to prevent the destruction of the Earth. The stakes are high and lives are lost as the dangerous world of anomalies comes to its climax.
The team is at a loss. Connor has disappeared through Philip’s anomaly, and Matt thinks that his mission is over – Philip has won, and seemingly, nothing has gone wrong. Matt has a decision to make about what to do next – and jumps through the anomaly to save Connor…
…to find himself in a barren desert world, with Connor struggling in the immense heat and deadly sun’s rays. It’s a world we recognise from Matt’s dreams. Worse still, coming towards them are a group of disgustingly mutated future predators, intent on causing some damage. They’re facing a deadly attack with no defence, until an EMD shot rings out; Abby has followed them through the anomaly. Luckily, Matt seems to know his way around, and the group head for a bunker, protection from the threat of the heat and the predators. Beginning to recover, Connor’s guilt about his role in Philip’s project is overwhelming. It takes a whispered promise from Abby to give him the impetus to carry on, and get back to the ARC in one last attempt to save the world…
Back at New Dawn, Emily has been captured and questions Philip about what he’s done. But they’re distracted by the anomaly – which is increasing in size rapidly. The scientists are starting to abandon ship as the building begins to shake. But things are even worse at the ARC, where, though all the anomalies have closed, some kind of strange atmospheric changes are playing havoc with their comms.
Connor, Matt and Abby make their way back to the anomaly, shocked by its now-enormous size. They arrive back through to find an abandoned New Dawn. But Philip, shocked by the atmospheric changes taking place, watches from inside New Dawn as dark clouds gather and the Earth seems to be taking its revenge…Connor gives Philip an impassioned speech about what they’re seeing, about the effects his machine will have in the future. Philip knows there’s only one thing he can do – attempt to shut down the machine….alone. He knows this is suicide, but he has to do something to try and right his wrongs. New Dawn explodes under the pressure but, to the shock of the team, the anomaly still remains.
At the ARC, future predators have managed to infiltrate it via Connor’s small man made anomaly (which has reopened with Philip’s machine). Jess and Lester are facing a losing battle, as they run out of weapons and ammunition. As the team arrive back, they’re faced with Jess cradling a mortally injured Lester, they’re thrown into a fight to save the ARC and bring down the future predators. Suddenly Connor realises how they might be able to stop Philip’s anomaly expanding – but they need to utilise his stable, man-made version to do so.
They face a race against time to get Connor’s anomaly to New Dawn in time to stop it, but for it to work, Connor’s anomaly needs to go into the big one. Matt knows this is his time – he tells the team he’ll drive the anomaly into New Dawn’s anomaly. Emily and Matt have a tearful goodbye, as Matt drives into the anomaly – will he make it back, or is Matt gone forever?
