In the hideout, the crew discusses Kaz’s ideas about sabotaging Van Eck’s sugar silos using chemical weevil. This will increase the prices of sugar thereby defeating the idea of the merchant of gaining profits through Grisha Power.
These plans however take a major turn for the bad as they find out that Pekka Rollins is allied with Van Eck. Pekka attacks the hideout which is guarded by Jesper and Matthias, which hides the Kuwei.
