Toward the end, after Kathy has access to the Ark, a scene appears where she is talking to her dad, Isaac, through the door, and it’s very similar to the opening where Isaac is attempting to take young Kathy along with him. However, this time around, Kathy has decided to board the Ark and head for planet Earth. On a whim, Isaac decides to join Kathy and leave the colonization on Mars behind, realizing he cannot leave his daughter for the second time. He contemplates his decision and knows well upon reaching the Earth, he’ll likely be prisoned, and the Ark will be sold to the highest bidder instead of it being used for the common good of humanity. This is also the second time Isaac leaves a whole settlement behind, similar to what happened in Deliver Us Moon.
