The British brothers both survived the failed raid o the ship, but now chase it in their nuclear submarine. Captured cahoot Juan Carlos is treated harshly, beyond doc Scott(s endurance, but despite near-torture by Slattery, actually plays a dirty game, pretending to have switched side. Slowly Chandler realizes they're facing a competitor for control of the cure, who already controls a European territory (actually thanks to traitor scientist Niels) and now wants world exclusivity. It comes to cat and mouse games, a torpedo duel and ultimately a shocking launch.

When the submarine launches its missiles, someone on the ship says they're going ballistic. An Astute class submarine is armed with Spearfish torpedoes and Tomahawk Block IV cruise missiles which have a range of 1,000 or 1,240 miles and they aren't ballistic in nature. A Tomahawk launched in the vicinity of the Bahamas at the greater range would cover most of the eastern US and reach into Texas and Oklahoma, but not Phoenix, Salt Lake City or western Europe.
