Struggling between life and death, the next morning, Hunter decides to climb down to the satellite dish, where they accidentally drop their bag, which consists of water and a drone. Hunter climbs down, retrieves the bag, and, with the help of Becky, the harness starts climbing up again. However, she loses her balance and falls on the satellite dish again.

Becky gets scared and peeks down to see if Hunter is okay. Happily, she finds Hunter alive, and Becky manages to pull Hunter up to the top. Retrieving the drone, Becky tries sending emergency help with the use of the drone, but the drone hits the truck and gets destroyed. Dehydrated Becky, who strives for life, finds no option than sending her own phone down for signal and help.

So, she asks Hunter for her another shoe, as they already lost her one shoe while sending help at the start. Becky tries to do the same again with the hope that they will survive. However, Hunter refuses to give her a shoe, and when Becky asks why Hunter says I’m down there.

At this point, Becky comes to a realization that she was only imagining Hunter and Hunter died a few hours back when she was trying to come up again, retrieving the bag and drone, but slips. It was only the bag that Becky pulled up and not Hunter.

She again peeks down and sees Hunter dead on the satellite dish. She starts imagining Hunter because she never wants to accept the fact her best friend is dead, and she is now all alone, wanting to survive but does not find any aid.
