While at camp, Greyson overhears some cafeteria workers having a suspicious conversation about the observatory. One of the cafeteria workers warns Greyson “You will not tell a soul about whatever you heard.” Greyson decides to lead a group of his friends to the observatory to investigate the legend when they discover the cafeteria workers and some other men pretending to be astronomers and hiding a secret. The fake astronomers convince the kids to return to camp, but Greyson remembers the last thing that his dad told him, "Do the good that should be done" and he works with his camp counselor to plan a return trip to the observatory. Greyson assigns each of his friends an important role in the plan and under Greyson’s leadership they manage to sneak into the observatory and steal two keys that the terrorists need to launch a missile hidden inside. Like a true hero, Greyson leads the terrorists on a great chase back to camp, “The bullets hit, blashing chunks from the trees all around them. Bark rained on the hood and their heads; sharp splinters stung their faces, forcing Greyson to stomp on the brakes and throw himself into the back of the cart, dragging Sydney with him.” and he remains brave and daring even when he ends up being taken hostage. Finally, when the FBI arrives to deal with the terrorists, Greyson and his friends use their best sport skills one last time to stop the attack
Joel confusedly looks around and behind him he sees a scared Sarah shaking him awake, Tommy just outside of the truck, and directly in front of him, he sees a family being attacked by somebody infected, which jolts him awake and back into reality.
