It will be a fight not just with the humans but with the rest of the Others -- as well as a fight with his own confusing feelings towards Meg...For Police Office Montgomery, Meg is the property he's supposed to recover -- and the spark that could start a fight with the Others that would wipe out the human city of Lakeside.
