  • It destroys the city, scorching buildings with its breath and razing everything in its path. The military fights back, but they're quickly toast.
  • Police and fire fighters try to rescue the populace, but they're stopped.
  • Amid the destruction, a woman calms her terrified children, saying that they'll be with Daddy soon. Whoa.
