He then helped her because he had fallen in love and couldn't bring himself to kill her.
The two, though uneasily, coordinate a plan to extract Sammy then begin executing it. While deployed, Ben and his squadmate Ringer start to piece together their true purposes and learn that Wright-Patterson is actually run by the Others.

Later, a helicopter quickly flies over the hotel, and then a small girl, whom Sammy identifies as one Megan, appears. Evan wakes up and warns them that she is rigged with a bomb that explodes when it comes into contact with human breath. Evan and Cassie extract the bomb from Megan's throat. Grace appears and, after a violent confrontation, is killed when Private Poundcake detonates the bomb, killing himself too. The second part of the story follows Private Ringer. She is taken to a base somewhere, similar to Wright-Patterson, and meets the alive-and-well Colonel Vosch.
Vosch constantly thwarts her with mind games and preaches to her a philosophy that "rage is not the answer". She semi-befriends a recruit called Razor, who is aware that Vosch and the staff of the base are indeed the Others. Vosch installs Ringer with a piece of technology, the "twelfth system", that enhances her strength. He also reveals to Ringer that silencers were never actually Others, just humans planted with fake memories and enhanced by the twelfth system with a link to the alien Mothership.
It is concluded that there are only dozens of true Others in the world, and that the Mothership is the last remnant of their society programmed with the goal of eradicating humans. Ringer and Razor attempt to escape, though Razor secretly conspired with Vosch, and they were being monitored the entire time. Ringer learns, neutralizes Razor, and runs off, but not fast enough to evade Vosch, who incapacitates her. Razor is ordered to rejuvenate Ringer, though he does more and the two sleep in a rough, hazy love.
When they arrive back on base, Razor kills Teacup, whom Vosch used as a bargaining chip, in order to set Ringer free. Razor is shot dead, and Ringer escapes the base. As the novel closes, Cassie and squad 53 recover from the bomb that destroyed the hotel, when Evan, weak and exhausted, emerges from the woods. The book was noted for its dark appeal, and was released to the same good reception as its predecessor. The closing chapter of the story of the series. The fifth wave is still commencing, or so the characters believe.
Ringer and Evan know that once Vosch and the other few Others are withdrawn from the surface, the mothership will drop massive bombs on the surface to obliterate any trace of humanity left on Earth.
Cassie and squad 53 settle in the dead silencer Grace's former home. Ringer returns to Vosch knowing that he will kill Ben Parish and the rest of squad 53 if she does not kill the persistently rebellious Evan Walker for him. She takes a helicopter to the town that the squad stationed themselves in and is attacked by a silencer. She is met by Ben after the silencer is killed, and the two head to the house.
Ringer immediately attempts to kill Evan, but they are interrupted by an incoming helicopter. Evan realizes why Ringer intended to kill him and he submits and is taken.
So what happened in book one?
The group devise a plan to not only save Evan but to end the Others permanently. Cassie and Ringer infiltrate the base via a hijacked helicopter. Ringer detonates several bombs to incite chaos on the base, and, after many complications, they reach the command center of the base. Ben, having stayed behind to protect Sam and Megan, is attacked by a patrol and the three are taken back to the base.
Cassie and Ringer attempt to find Evan's data on the CPU to locate him, though they do not know how to sift through each cell individually, and so Cassie downloads the data of every logged person to her own head to find it. She learns everything there is to know about anything who was ever downloaded in the CPU, and she learns the codes and layout of the base.
Evan arrives, now completely devoid of humanity at the hands of the twelfth system. He fights Ringer disables her easily. However, he walks into a trap when Cassie drops a live electric cable on the wet surface beneath him as a result of the sprinkler system. Ringer wakes up to see Vosch, who has become attached to her and wishes to bring her with him in his extraction pod. The conversation is only a decoy from Ringer, allowing Cassie to shoot and kill him from behind.
Cassie then uses the knowledge she gained to open Vosch's escape pod and she ascends into the sky. Ringer gets ahold of a device from Vosch that will electrocute any soldier with a tracking implant in them. Without much else of a choice, she activates it. Ben, Sam, and Megan dive out of their helicopter as the soldiers and pilot die, and they realize Cassie and Ringer must still be alive. Cassie, now ascending to the mothership, has a chance to glimpse the memories that she now has from tens of thousands of people.
She begins to truly think about what humanity is worth, when the pod nears the Mothership. She takes out an explosive pill from her pocket that Vosch originally gave to Ringer so she could kill herself rather than be destroyed in the bombs of the fifth wave. She bites down on the pill, and the Mothership explodes.
Ben and the kids witness this to their sorrow and delight. They enter the base and find Ringer paralyzed on the floor.
