The Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7's Operation: Skyfire event altered our perception of Dr. Slone and the IO Army. The twist at the end shook fans' beliefs and trust in Dr. Slone and the IO and their plans. Since the start of Chapter 2 Season 7, she had been a primary character, and not even for a second did her plans look nefarious.

But Dr. Slone managed to fool everyone and lure loopers into the Alien Mothership to escape, only to blow it up with everyone still inside.

But at the end of the Skyfire event, she betrayed everyone to save the island from The Cubes, which inevitably failed. This deception, and keeping everyone in the dark, when combined, indeed makes for one of the greatest betrayals of Fortnite.

Dr. Slone led the fight against the Last Reality as they attacked the island to take the Zero Point for themselves. She deceived everyone into thinking that she was on their side and even asked players to help her find the mole on the island.

Throughout Fortnite Season 7, players had to perform several missions for her, and it was believed that Dr. Slone was working on a countermeasure device to defeat the aliens.

However, as we all know now, Dr. Slone was working on bombs and had planned to blow up the Mothership. After the Mothership abducted the players in Operation: Sky Fire, Slone hacked the Alien Jetpack to interact with them.

When she was about to detonate the bombs, the Cube rose from the water. However, the Cube turned dormant, and Slone told players that she could not bring them to Apollo because she could not allow The Cube to return. She detonated the bombs and cut the connection.

This killed almost everyone abode the Mothership. However, thanks to some luck, players survived the bomb blast.

Where is Dr. Slone now?

In Fortnite Season 8, Slone was seen moving to IO Convoy with a group of IO Guards. After arriving at the bunker, they opened it to reveal the IO Staging Facility.

They gathered alien ship materials from the flatbed truck inside the facility but it was unclear what Dr. Slone was planning to do and, most importantly, whether she's a friend or a foe.
