Upon arriving in Kleiner’s Lab after teleporting away from the Depot, Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance discover they have been stuck in a teleport “loop” for a week’s time.
They find that the teleport caused the destruction of Nova Prospekt, and the blow they struck there was taken as a sign to begin the Uprising.
The two factions have been locked in combat for a week and all of City 17 is a warzone. Freeman goes on to aid in the battle, while Alyx remains in Kleiner’s Lab to help him escape the city.
The player is able to form small squads of citizens to help as they fight their way through the city towards Barney’s location.
Near the end of the chapter, Alyx returns to help Gordon but is captured by Combine soldiers and taken to the Citadel.
