Stein can't view her as a real person. He wants to go back in time and erase her from the time line.

After they managed to knock out an alien, a bunch of government officials show up. They knock the Legends out so they can take them and the alien away.

Cisco and Felicity gear up to go save the others. Amaya and Nate can't use their powers, meaning they're all stuck. Luckily the alien is locked in with them.

He plans to turn himself in. Oliver, the Legends, Kara, and even Cisco step up to stop him. Jax and Sara come in to alert the team that the ship is opening up.

The ship is a distraction from the big bomb dropped from space. Cisco and Sara rush off in the Waverider in an attempt to stop the bomb. Everyone else stays to take on the alien army. As everyone fights, Barry rushes around to place the weapon Stein made on each Dominator. The Waverider tries to catch the falling bomb but them can only slow it down.

Sara calls in Firestorm for help. She wants them to transmute the bomb into something more harmless.
