Chloe tells Arlo she thinks Jack was right all along and he probably has the evidence.

Jack, Reed, Ricker and Pavel leave the scene together.
Logan is informed Jack got away with Pavel. Pillar realizes that Jack used Reed to draw them out. Since Pavel is aware of everything Pillar thinks Logan should "distance himself" from everything.
