Detailed Synopsis

A member of the DAS orders people to leave the Bronx over a loudspeaker, due to the area being considered uninhabitable. The residents are told they will be given housing in New Mexico. A Resident of the Bronx is caught hiding and then set on fire with a flame thrower by a DAS member. A Radio Operator tells headquarters what areas the different Squads are patrolling. Skyboy 3 is flying in a helicopter when they spot Trash. They start shooting at Trash, but he manages to blow up the helicopter with his revolver. A Squad is sent to Trash's parent's apartment. Trash's Father is arguing with Trash's Mother, who wants to leave, but Trash's Father insists they stay. The squad breaks into Trash's Parent's apartment. Trash's Father attacks them with a baseball bat, but he is set on fire with a flamethrower. Trash's Mother is then set on fire. Trash arrives near Dablone's hangout and is stopped by Big Little Man and two other members of Dablone's Gang. They threaten Trash for not giving them the signal and after a brief fight, Dablone stops the fight and tells Trash to follow him inside.

Trash passes by the Iron Men Leader who greets him. He also passes by the remnants of the Tigers and Zombies gangs. Trash gives Dablone some ammunition he scavenged. Trash tries to convince Dablone to fight the DAS, but Dablone tells him to tell the others to join him and his gang underground. Trash catches people running away with items from his apartment and he attacks them. He finds his parents dead and shoots a looter after the looter throws a knife at him and another one that attacks him. Hoffman introduces Henry Clark to a group of reporters. Hoffman explains to the reporters the companies plan for the Bronx and shows them a model of what the Bronx will look like after construction. Reporter 1 mentions how the Bronx is a dump and Hoffman tells the reporters how the residents will be moved to New Mexico. Moon Grey tells the other reporters that Hoffman is lying and she and Jay are thrown out of the press conference. Reporter 2 asks about the epidemic that has supposedly broken out in the Bronx, and Hoffman tells him it hasn't been contained. Reporter 1 asks if it is true that people are being forced out of their homes and Hoffman lies and says it isn't true. A DAS member asks Floyd Wrangler what headquarters said, and Floyd tells him he doesn't care and he is doing it his way.

Henry Clark leaves the GC Corporation building and is surrounded by more reporters. Moon Grey runs up to Henry and shows him photos of Floyd,who she accuses of being a killer. Henry is hurriedly brought into his limo and leaves. Trash holds his Mother's hand and hears the demolition squads will be blowing up the building. A DAS Member tells Floyd there might be someone still inside the building, but Floyd tells him there is only rats and roaches left and laughs. The buildings are blown up and Trash is forced to run towards the basement. Henry has a meeting with Floyd and tells him the UN is calling his methods genocide. Floyd tells Henry that the remaining people in the Bronx are what remains of the battle in the Bronx that happened previously. A DAS walk over to a group of Bronx Residents and are ambushed by Trash and the residents from the Bronx. The Radio Operator tells all of the DAS to converge on sector R2R.

She tells Dablone that he has to do something or they will be in trouble. Dablone tells Moon Grey the DAS will never come underground.
