** [[https://github.com/Jackathan/MarcLaidlaw-Epistle3/blob/master/Epistle3_Corrected.md The plot of ''Episode 3'' released by Marc Laidlaw]] [[spoiler: has Gordon and Alyx destroy the Combine homeworld with the Borealis in a planned suicide attack, but they are taken to safety by the Vortigaunts and the G-Man, respectively. Although Gordon is free, Alyx is implied to be G-Man's newest pawn, and Gordon has been flung far enough into the future that the terrain itself has changed. The future humanity is also left open ended, with Gordon unsure of whether or not the resistance has succeeded in driving out the Combine.]]
