"Catch A Ride", also titled "Episode 3", is the third episode of Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands.

Chapter Summary

Regardless if Rhys chooses to trust Fiona or Handsome Jack, the group successfully escapes August and Vasquez. However, they are cornered by Vallory and her minions outside the facility. She kills Vasquez and prepares to execute the others, but they are saved by Athena who forces Vallory, August, and their gang to retreat. Athena reveals she was secretly hired by Felix to protect and mentor Fiona and Sasha. Fiona activates the Gortys unit, which is revealed to be a robot. Gortys explains that Atlas created her to locate the teleporting Vault of the Traveler. However, Athena killed all of Atlas' employees, leaving Gortys incomplete. They take Gortys to her next upgrade, and as they travel Rhys chooses to either trust and partner up with Jack or reject his offer. The group reaches an Atlas biodome and successfully retrieve the upgrade, but are attacked and captured by Vallory, who hands off a defeated Athena to be taken away by Brick and Mordecai. Depending on Fiona's choice, Vaughn either escapes or is captured only to escape later. Gortys is forced by Vallory to reveal that her next upgrade is on Helios.
