Ellie and an injured Joel shelter in an abandoned house. As Joel approaches death, he urges Ellie to leave him. She remembers her time in FEDRA military school, which she attended with her best friend Riley Abel. While Ellie causes trouble and fights with her peers, Riley ran away and has been missing for three weeks. Riley sneaks back into their dorm room and reveals to Ellie she has joined the Fireflies. She brings Ellie to an abandoned mall, where they explore a photo booth, an arcade, and a carousel. Riley tells Ellie the Fireflies have assigned her to a post in Atlanta, and it is her last night in Boston. While Ellie is initially upset, she convinces Riley to stay, and they kiss. An infected attacks them and Ellie manages to kill it, but both get bitten during the struggle. Tearfully, they decide to stay together and wait for the infection to take hold. In the present, Ellie finds a sewing needle and begins to stitch up Joel’s wound.

The Armorer and a group of Mandalorians hold a ceremony to induct a young child into the tribe. The ceremony is interrupted when an aquatic monster attacks the Mandalorians. They fight back but are soon overpowered. Din Djarin arrives, killing the creature with his starfighter and revealing that Grogu has chosen to stay with him. The Armorer confirms that if the mines of Mandalore still exist, Djarin may become a Mandalorian once more. Djarin travels to Nevarro to meet Greef Karga, who is now the High Magistrate. Djarin helps Karga stop a group of pirates who have been attacking citizens and schools on Nevarro. Karga offers Djarin the newly vacated position of marshal, but Djarin refuses, stating that he came to rebuild IG-11. Djarin successfully revives IG-11, but the droid defaults to his original, violent programming. Djarin brings his parts to a group of Anzellan mechanics, who tell him that they need a new memory core to fully repair the droid. As Djarin leaves Nevarro, the pirate crew attacks his ship, but he destroys several of their fighters and escapes. Djarin meets with Bo-Katan in an old Mandalorian castle, who reveals that after losing the Darksaber, she has abandoned her plans to reclaim Mandalore and suggests that Djarin should travel there alone.
