In 2015, Keiko explains to Cate that she rigged the Titan lure from Operation Hourglass to send a distress signal from the Hollow Earth. They reunite with May and Shaw; Keiko is devastated to learn that decades have passed, and that Bill never returned from his expedition to Skull Island.[b] Tim leaves Monarch after clashing with Verdugo over her refusal to investigate Keiko’s signal and instead notifies Kentaro and Hiroshi. As Shaw and Keiko reconnect the lure to the Operation Hourglass launch vehicle, she reveals her intention to remain behind, but Cate persuades her otherwise. Shaw activates the vehicle, but inadvertently lures an Ion Dragon already present in Axis Mundi. Shaw exits the vehicle to reconnect a cable dislodged by the Dragon. Godzilla emerges through a rift and battles the Ion Dragon, eventually throwing it back through the rift and activating the vehicle. As Keiko struggles to bring Shaw back into the vehicle, he sacrifices himself to allow their escape.

In 2017, at an Apex Cybernetics research station on Skull Island, Hiroshi successfully returns the vehicle to the surface world; he, Kentaro, and Tim reunite with Keiko, Cate, and May. They evacuate as Kong approaches.
