With the President presumed dead, they swear in the Secretary of the Interior as the new President, code named "Condor". Harpoon informs Condor of the last communication from the Soviet President, the mistake regarding China, the matching damage already done by the initial retaliation with American ICBMs, and advises that the United States agree to the ceasefire. Colonel Fargo, a hawkish advisor on Nightwatch, who believes that the Soviets are playing a trick, advises Condor that the only path to victory is quick destruction of the Soviet Union.
Polar Bear 1 is attacked by a trio of MiGs over Alaska. One is shot down by the B's rear machine guns. The crew then drop one of their nuclear bombs on one side of a mountain range, using the other side of the mountain to shield their plane from the blast, destroying the other two MiGs. Condor agrees with Col. Fargo's plan to move forward with a submarine missile and bomber attack.
Harpoon disagrees, and he attempts to hide his nuclear authentication codes, but they are forcibly taken by Col. Fargo and Condor contact Alice, giving the authentication codes and ordering him to execute the remainder of the attack plan. Alice advises against this course of action, but obeys his orders and begins to organize the bombers for the attack. The attack orders are received by Polar Bear 1.
Moreau argues that their target will kill off all Soviet leadership, leaving nobody to "turn [the war] off". Cassidy hands her a suicide pill , but then he breaks down and begs her not to go.

The Soviets promise to stand off for one hour to see if the U. Air Force will recall its bombers. Alice begs Condor to view this as a sign that the Soviets are willing to call a ceasefire and asks for permission to recall all American bombers. Condor instead orders Alice to send U. Navy carrier-based fighters to shoot down Polar Bear 1 as traitors. When Alice hesitates, Fargo informs Condor that they can figure a way to send the launch commands from Nightwatch, at which point Condor dismisses Alice and cuts off communication with "Looking Glass".
The real President contacts Looking Glass. He lost his authentication codes in the helicopter crash, but he calls Alice by his real name as proof of who he is. Alice and his Looking Glass staff agree to follow the real President's orders and they order a recall of the bombers with the Russians following suit. However, Alice lacks the authority to call off the submarine attack.
Two American carrier-based fighter jets intercept the crippled Polar Bear 1, now flying low over the Pacific Ocean. As the fighters begin their attack runs, they receive word that their ship has been hit by a Soviet torpedo and it is sinking. Doomed to run out of fuel in the open ocean, they bid Polar Bear 1 good luck, unwilling to doom their fellow American pilots alongside them. The real President finally connects with Condor. Condor doubts it is him, which Col. Fargo reinforces by implying that the Russians have impersonators. Condor states that the President he knew would want a military victory, and disconnects.
