The soldiers and apes went at it, And the soldiers and gorilla red ended up getting captured by the apes. After the humans were captured, Ceasar has a message for colonel before letting the soldiers go to be released, and the message was basically that he wanted peace between the apes and the human society, and that he was not the one who tried to start the war between them. Gorilla Red escapes from Ceasar who was trying to keep him detained for all the crimes he committed. After that incident lieutenant rocket and Ceasars son come and explains to Ceasar that they found a god place for the apes to go. Ceasar does not think the are quiet ready to go yet. The night comes and the colonel leads a group of soldiers to make there way to the apes. And the colonel takes out two of the closest to Ceasar, but you must watch to see who.
One of the apes “Winter” who is an albino ape who runs with Ceasar, played by Aleks Paunovik went missing during the event. So one of Ceasar’s other guys “Luca”, which is a big gorilla believes that Winter has turned on them because he is scared of the humans. Ceasar and some of his team Luca, Maurice and Rocket goes off to find the colonel and kill him for executing some who were close to him while the other apes head another direction. On Ceasar’s mission, him and his group run into Winter, to discover that he joined the other side because the colonel let him survive. You must watch to see how Ceasar handles that. Ceasar starts to feel like wanting to get revenge is starting to get the best of him. Ceasar then runs into Bad Ape and he leads Ceasar and the crew to the border where the soldiers where, when they reach the destination they see hundreds of apes detained in a facility area. A AO Patrol is at ceasar, but one of the apes takes the fall for him. The rest of the apes are captured and forced to build something. Ceasar see this but before you know it he is captured by Gorilla Red.

The U.S army are on a mission to come kill the colonel because he is trying to kill the spreading of the virus by killing off infected humans. Ceasar is now caged nothing to eat, then this girl who could not speak, which Ceasar and his team ran into her earlier, finds her way into where Ceasar is and provides him with water and food, also leaves a doll with him. A day later the colonel comes in to check if Caesar is alive and notices a doll and questions him about it. Caesar and Rocket found out a way to make it out of the facility.
