The Promised Neverland Season 2 Spoilers

In the penultimate episode of season 1, Emma convinces Ray to abandon his plan of self-sacrificing, giving him the details of the second plan that Norman made. With the help of other children, she prepares a decoy and sets the orphanage on fire. When Isabella comes, Emma pretends that Ray has set himself on fire. While the older woman is distracted, Emma slices out the ear with the tracker and makes her escape. In the woods beside the orphanage, she reunites with Ray and other children. Isabella eventually realizes what has happened and discovers that the fleeing 15 children have left those who are under age 5 behind. While Emma wanted to take all, she had to be pragmatic. As the children prepare to cross the cliff, she promises Ray that they will return and free the younger children before they are harvested or taken to be killed. She also has plans to rescue children from other plantations.

Isabella arrives right before Emma, the last among the children, is about to cross the cliff. Accepting defeat, she removes the evidence of their escape and assures Phil, the only child under age 5 who knows the truth, that his foster siblings are safe. The episode ends as the 15 children witness sunrise for the first time outside of the orphanage.
