Goddard accuses Citra of murdering Faraday using Faradays diary entry about Scythe Curie and her research.
Citra kills herself to escape from Xenocrates and Goddard, because she isn't a scythe she gets sent to the nearest revival center.
Citra and Scythe Curie sneak out of the revival center and go to Curies friend. Turns out the person that Citra finds is Scythe Faraday under an alias.
After Citra's name is cleared they head to the winter meeting. They are to face their final test to become a scythe. Citra becomes a scythe and is told to kill Rowan. She punches rowan so hard in the face making him bleed. This was part of Citra's plan because the blood entered her rind and into the scythdom making Rowan immune.
Citra tells Rowan that there is a car waiting for him. In the car there was Scythe Faraday and Scythe Curie. Now Rowan escaped with immunity and Citra had become a scythe.
