Continuing on from the end of the last flashback, Cassian lets the other kids walk ahead with the body of the young girl who was shot, instead staying behind to investigate further inside the ship. He finds multiple dead guards inside and ultimately gets to the control room, where he sees himself in a reflection and then proceeds to smash practically everything in the room. Honestly, same.
We're also led into another flashback, though this one is featuring a much younger Maarva with her partner, Clem Andor (Gary Beadle), as they're scrapping the fallen ship for items to sell. Along with them is also our favorite buddy, B2EMO, who's wandering around and just being cute.
The two flashbacks converge when Maarva hears loud noises coming from another area of the fallen ship. Upon investigating it, she finds a young Cassian who's extremely frightened to see her and Clem Andor. After finding out that a Republic ship is headed to their location, they have to immediately flee, though they realize that leaving Cassian behind would certainly result in his death.
Cassian is still resisting the duo as he doesn't speak their language, but as they're on a time crunch, Maarva administers a shot that makes him drowsy, allowing them all to flee the scene into space together.
In the present day, Bix's client, Luthen Rael (Stellan Skarsgård) arrives on Ferrix, and the two meet to quickly discuss Andor's situation with being hunted down by the Pre-Mor authorities.
As the guards have now landed on Ferrix, they immediately head over to Maarva's home to search for Andor, who's not there. Instead, they decide to rip apart her entire home in search of any hidden clues, though the largest clue of all ends up being right in front of them: B2EMO.
While waiting for Luthen, Andor contacts B2EMO, who—by nature of how its system is made—basically puts him on speakerphone for all of the guards to hear. They whip out some technological device that's able to track the sound, and with that, the guards head east to take down their suspect.
Luthen finally arrives, meeting Andor in an abandoned warehouse, though just as this is occurring, the Deputy Inspector and his crew begin to creep up on them from the outside.
While Luthen is still interested in buying the coveted Starpath unit, he realizes that there's something else he wants: Cassian Andor himself. After listening to him explain how he was able to retrieve the Starpath unit, it becomes apparent that Andor would be a major asset to Luthen in establishing the Rebellion cause.
Just as they've (sort of) come to an understanding, the Pre-Mor guards begin to break into the warehouse, though Luthen has planned for this and detonates a few explosive charges that he had placed before, which creates some chaos and kills a few guards in the process. The Starpath unit was knocked to the center of the warehouse which Andor is adamant about getting back, though he ultimately has to leave it behind in order to save his own life.
The two end up escaping through a furnace in the warehouse after taking out the guards, but there are still two other teams of Pre-Mor guards waiting in position nearby. By chance, they end up finding the Deputy Inspector himself, whom they decide to tie up and leave in a random building. Just as one of the other guards hears the Deputy Inspector mumble-yelling for help, a speeder-car flies by, seemingly with Andor and Luthen inside.
The nearby guards are able to take the car down as it comes to a major crash, though just as they're about to approach it, Andor and Luthen race by in a classic speeder bike, activating the explosive charges that they had planted on the speeder-car, leaving everyone in their dust.
The two finally reach Luthen's ship and head out into space, speeding towards what will soon become the beginning of a new Rebellion.
