Through the resistance, Gratz is able to meet Vincent, Jimmy and Nina. He offers to help them escape, using Cadet's radio and code to contact London and arrange a pick-up, knowing that his transmissions can be detected by the SS. The offer is accepted and a rendezvous on the coast organised, but Vincent has decided to stay in France and return to his network. After sending Jimmy and Nina outside to their car, Vincent intends to kill Gratz, but instead after a struggle Gratz shoots and kills Vincent. Outside, Jimmy and Nina hear only the shots and know they must go on anyway.
