The stranger attempts to chat with Elizabeth again the next day while she is in a coffee shop, but logs off quickly when another customer approaches the webcam.
That night, Damien surprises Elizabeth by showing up to her home in the middle of the night, and Elizabeth's hacked webcam records the couple having sex before the hacker sends the video to Elizabeth's graduate board.
She is chased by a number of killers, one of whom is a young man who she attacks, demanding to know where Damien is; he tells her that he is not there.
She manages to escape to aboveground, bludgeoning other attackers before hijacking one of their cars, but crashes when blindsided by another member's car; she is removed from the wreck by the killers and dragged back to the complex.
She is attacked by a hooded figure hidden in her closet, but she stabs him repeatedly and flees, only to be apprehended by another hooded attacker outside.Elizabeth awakens in a room of a nightmarish, abandoned complex, chained to a wall with a Go Pro stapled to her forehead.A computer is in the room, forcing her to chat with the abducted Damien, who informs her that there are many other attackers.Though most of her chats are quickly ended due to sexual content or scams, she accumulates plenty of data and is optimistic about the outcome of the project.While chatting with strangers with Jenni, Elizabeth encounters a woman whose webcam appears to be broken.Later, when the house is surrounded by police, one of the attackers returns and picks up the camera, revealing that they are either part of law enforcement or posing as a police officer.The attacker fixates on the father of Lynn's child, who she is separated from, irritating her.Though Elizabeth implores the police to investigate, they tell her that there is nothing that they can do.Meanwhile, Jenni is lured to Elizabeth's house by the hacker, who pretends to be Elizabeth and abducts her when she arrives.Though Jenni is alive when Elizabeth finds her, she dies soon after, and Elizabeth finds a suicide note emailed to her, ostensibly from the hacker posing as Jenni.Elizabeth is further shaken when she receives a message showing the attackers stalking and entering a home owned by Lynn, Elizabeth's pregnant sister.
