A Swedish game designer turned hacker that specializes in zombie bots is after Joel. The thugs show up to the party and try to take down Joel. Chance shows up just in time to stop the men and help Joel and Ames escape.
Joel played a game called Zombie Circus, which he thought sucked, so he hacked into the company's website and erased all their files. They now want revenge.
Guerrero goes to the boss and gets the Swedes’ contact information. Chance contacts the man behind the hit and arranges to trade the laptop for the family's freedom. He wants Joel to personally deliver the computer into a crowded mall.
The team is undercover in the mall as Joel delivers the laptop. Just as Joel is about to make the drop, his friend Jamie stops him to talk. The Swedes change their mind and decide to also take Joel. Chance is able to stop them by riding a hanging sled to knock out the thug and take back Joel's laptop.
Michem was acting alone, so Richard Applebaum gets to keep his job.
