Following the previous case Tomi and the player went to the airport and then in Hungary to find Austina and Antigona. When they arrived in Tomi's homeland they found that they have no idea where their last location is. Luckily, Zeynep tracked Antigona's and Austin's phone and send them a location. As they arrived to the LEGION's temple for sacrificing they saw that on the sacrificing table is a lifeless body of informant and Tomi's girlfriend Antigona Hoxha, which heart was removed. After Chief Wilson heard who died, he ordered Tomi to step away on which he, full of anger, cut the communication with him.

Right after that, Priya approached and said that he saw strange symbols of LEGION at the city park and together with the player went there. in the park the team found evidence to flag boxer Baxter Fraser and Russian spy Stefaniya Ivanova. Both of them said that they had a friendly relations with Antigona before her death.The team approached Antigona again after the player found that she and the victim are related. She said that she never saw her as a sister even if she tried. She continued and explained that ever since she met her she had feels for her and that when Antigona's mother adopted her 6 years ago her future plans with her fell into the water and ever since then she couldn't even look in her eyes and by time her obsession for her became so big that she almost assaulted her. As well, Priya and the player went to speak with Sven again after analyzed of glowing crystal who end up to be a very radioactive and dangerous rock. He said that the crystal was his gift of unfriendship for her. He continued to explain and said that she was the same as others, an idiot who mocks him for having a dream of being a superhero, but that she was the worst of all because she also pulled out his costume, hair and sometimes even hits him. Before he left, he added that he wouldn't let anyone to mock his dream.

After the team step by the lake to recap the case, they were disturbed by Stefaniya who attacked the team.
