We Both Know How This Ends is the 12th episode of TRON: Uprising, in which Mara is in charge of the garage and must prove her leadership skills.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Able, deciding to confront a situation he felt he should have dealt with long ago, left the garage in Mara's hands and drove off into the Outlands. Initially intimidated by the responsibility, Mara asked Beck and Zed to back her up; but although they agreed, they soon began to neglect their tasks and slack off with their coworkers. Their assurances that the work would be done "eventually" backfired when Pavel arrived, threatening to send the entire work crew to the Games if they failed to fix twelve tanks (which Beck, as the Renegade, had previously sabotaged) before the end of the shift.

Mara urged the mechanics to work together and pool their results, but Dash scoffed that there was no time for that and told them that listening to her would get them derezzed. The frightened crew rushed to work on the tanks individually, throwing the garage into chaos.

Able, meanwhile, lost his vehicle when a bite from a gridbug distracted him and sent it off a cliff. He walked further into the Outlands, set up a tent with a beacon signal in a remote, stormy area, and was shortly met by Tron, whom he had been helping to maintain the healing chamber keeping the reclusive warrior alive. Able revealed that he knew Beck was the Renegade, and demanded that Tron stop using the young program as a catspaw, threatening to withdraw his help rather than let Beck become "one of your mistakes." Tron objected, but their argument was cut short when the tent was invaded by a massive swarm of gridbugs. The two escaped on Tron's snowmobile, leaving an explosive in the tent to destroy the swarm.

At the garage, time was close to running out when Mara realized that Link, while working on his tank, had briefly and inadvertently managed to revert its malfunctions. Beck attempted to sneak off to distract Pavel as the renegade, but Mara caught him before he could leave, scolding him for attempting him to avoid work and telling him he'd better spend less time slacking off and more time trying to avoid getting derezzed. Assembling the crew, she stated that she had made a mistake by trying to be their friend when they needed a leader, and dispatched them to implement the newly found solution. The tanks were repaired in the nick of time. Able, returning to the garage alone, instructed Beck to return the snowmobile baton to its owner, and complimented Mara for her successful shift as leader, telling her that she had been his "first and only choice."
