Cross catches up to Vex and Bron. He captures Vex, but promises to free her from jail as soon as he can.
Vex is taken to the Spike, a prison built to hold Dark Jedi during the Clone Wars. Cross sneaks in, posing as a maintenance man, and frees Vex. She then tells him that it was Rodas Borgin who hired her to kidnap Bron.
Cross tells Borgin that he should have informed him of the plan so he wouldn’t have thwarted. Borgin requests the Empire send him someone else instead of Cross.
