The next morning, Jesse and Petra/Ivor participate in the next day of the Games. The Green Team calls for a truce, which Jesse can either accept or reject. The Games then begin with a race, which eventually leads the competitors into Gladiator Junction, an area overrun by Gladiators. Jesse is barely able to make it out alive and is able to assist Nell, a Green Team member, to victory. Unbeknownst to Jesse, Emily, also from the Green team, had made a deal with Hadrian to eliminate Jesse, but she didn't follow through. Jesse then is ordered by Slab, one of the gladiators, to meet with Hadrian, and Jesse reluctantly complies.
Inside Hadrian's office, Hadrian talks with Jesse about winning the Games and tells Jesse that Tim is
a just a story Hadrian made up to keep the competitors motivated. Breaking down a wall, Hadrian reveals that he captured Olivia, Axel, and Reuben (who turns out to be the usher from the first episode). Hadrian then suddenly changes the terms of his deal with Jesse, stating that if Jesse wins, then Olivia and Axel will work in the mines forever, but if Jesse loses, all of his/her friends will be able to leave, but Jesse will have to stay behind. Jesse can either agree to the deal or decline it, and is sent back to the competitor's village. At the competitor's village, Jesse informs the competitors that Hadrian has rigged the game against them, and Jesse can choose to disclose that Tim is not real. They all then rest for the night.
The next morning, everyone participates in the final day of the Games, with "The Walls". Jesse is thrown into an area which basically is just dirt and gravel. After the walls come down, the participants then team up and the Gladiators defect, giving Jesse and the other participants the victory. Just as Otto is about to give Jesse the Atlas, Hadrian and Mevia trap Otto in obsidian and battle Jesse. Fortunately, Jesse wins thanks to "Tim's armor," and Jesse is rightfully given the Atlas. Otto plans to make the games fun again, and Jesse then can convince Emily to go home, help Otto with the games, or join him/her. The six (Jesse, Axel, Petra, Lukas, Olivia, and Ivor) then head home and put their souvenirs on display. As they are about to leave, Jesse and Lukas notice that Ivor has run off with the Atlas and the enchanted flint and steel, and Jesse can decide whether to go after him or let him be.
