After watching Venter die, Todd confesses to Elizabeth that he had agreed to plant a bomb on campus, but chickened out. When Philip locates the bomb in Todd's dorm where he said it would be, he argues Todd should be freed. Ncgobo disagrees. For the first time, Elizabeth errs on the side of compassion and agrees with Philip to let him go.
Elizabeth fears that Todd may have seen Hans during his capture, and informs Hans he can no longer be used as a spy. Hans then murders Todd, in order to maintain his cover, and continue working with Elizabeth.
