The telepath situation becomes critical and Bester arrives to take control over Garibaldi's objections.
Lochley enters to catch the end of his speech. She accuses him of enjoying the hunt, and he replies that if they weren't protecting normals from rogue telepaths, another worse method of controlling telepaths would be employed. He adds that his mission is to help rogue telepaths understand they are all on the same side. The transport tube doors open to reveal the body of the ambushed bloodhound nailed to the wall under the words "Free Byron!"
Byron contacts President Sheridan. He can convince his followers to back off if the Psi Cops leave the station. Sheridan is trying to negotiate when Bester walks in and sneers that Byron never keeps his promises. "It's over," he says.
"No, there are other ways," Byron replies and breaks off. He brushes off Lyta's question about what Bester meant.
Bester ignores Sheridan's anger and delivers a progress report. Once he's gone Sheridan wonders to Lochley why Garibaldi hasn't been heard from.
The telepaths outside the Byron's stronghold are in a losing firefight. One of them thinks of a place they can get hostages.
The telepaths lift the teek Peter from his sickbed to help them guard an access route. Franklin tries to intervene for his patient and almost gets killed.
Zack leads a sally against Peter's position, but is confused into retreating when confronted by a barrage of bedpans.
Bester gloats to the President about his error in trusting rogue telepaths. Even though Garibaldi's life is in danger, Bester still has jurisdiction over the handling of the crisis, so there's nothing Lochley or Sheridan can do, short of negotiating with terrorists.
Lyta and Byron walk around their sealed-in domain. She pauses at every air shaft and sends her mind down each one, searching for a free path out.
Sheridan paces agitatedly. He tells Lochley he's probably condemned his friend to death. Byron pages them from Medlab. He offers to surrender with everyone responsible for committing crimes, if in exchange he is allowed to gather all his people together and speak with them, and then the innocent ones are allowed to leave the station peacefully. Lochley agrees.
Bester is pissed. Lochley tells him that he no longer has jurisdiction. If he wants Byron, he needs to go through channels back on Earth. Just then Zack comes in with the identicards and signed confessions of telepaths who committed violence.
Bester gathers his bloodhounds for a final attempt to grab Byron at docking. As the violent telepaths begin to surrender to Lochley and armed guards, Bester rushes up and demands the prisoners. One of the telepaths panics and fires at Bester. In the ensuing fight, telepaths and guards are shot and a fuel conduit is ruptured.
Watching the grisly cleanup, Sheridan asks Bester if he's satisfied now. Bester seems lost. He never believed Byron hated him and the Corps so much. Franklin finds Sheridan and asks where Garibaldi is. He's worried because Garibaldi appeared so distraught and beaten earlier.
The remaining telepaths file off station under Bester's futile eye. Lyta rushes up, calling "Wait!" One-by-one, she touches each of the telepaths and gives them individual contact information for finding safe houses and rescuers set up for them wherever they go. It is Byron's last gift to them to keep them free. "Remember Byron," she tells each.
