Lourdes passed by Tom as he was tending to Cochise, Tom asked for her help, she tried to get away but he said Cochise was more important. She reluctantly turned around and helped. She confessed she didn’t know anything about Volm physiology and wouldn’t be able to help him. Cochise initially felt guilty for the deaths of his soldiers but was consoled by Tom. Cochise revealed to Lourdes that if left undisturbed his body would regenerate, that she didn’t need to do anything. As Tom told everyone to let him be, Lourdes closed the curtain, but not before staring at the wounded Volm for some time. She later planted a bomb in an air vent, as she left Weaver noticed her and said she’d better get back to the hospital, that they may have more casualties. She was trapped below when the bomb went off and knocked unconscious.
Tom found her later and carried her to the infirmary where Dr. Sumner treated her. Dr. Sumner believed she had a concussion, but there wasn’t anything they could do until she woke up. They wheeled her into the same room as Cochise, where she suddenly woke up and looked over at Cochise. Sometime later Dr. Sumner caught her out of bed and told her she needed to get back in bed. She felt she needed to help, Sumner told her they had everything taken care of. Tom walked in and agreed, she asked if the mole was behind the bomb. He said it was possible, she couldn’t believe how many people died and all they built was ruined. She told Tom she was sorry about Anne and Lexi, that she felt guilty since she was supposed to be watching them. She said they came so far only to die where they started, Boston. Tom told her not to dwell, that’s not what Anne would have wanted. After Tom left, she once again looked over at Cochise, this time taking out a scalpel. She slowly made her way over to Cochise and was about to stab him when Tom arrived and told her Anthony needed help. As she ran to him he rolled over pointing a gun at her, revealing that her identity as the mole had been revealed.
Tom told her she unwittingly revealed to him she was the mole by saying Anne and Lexi died "where they started" because Tom never told her where Anne died. Tom asked to see the med pack, since it looked like the one she gave to him for Keystone, Tom believed Lourdes put a tracking device in it. She repeatedly denied being the mole until Tom said she delivered Anne and Lexi to Karen. She then attempted to pull a Volm-enhanced gun out of it, but Tom quickly stopped her. She was knocked out by the force of the gun going off. Tom later restrained her, with Jeanne and Anthony expressing disbelief. Tom blamed himself, saying they had to be more careful. Lourdes suddenly awoke and started attempting to make Tom feel guilty for all that happened. Porter told him not to listen, it was the worm talking. She repeatedly stated that they’d lost and they would all die underground. This backfired as Tom took her Volm-enhanced gun, quietly walked out of the room and fired at the charges Kadar set up, allowing them to go free.
Lourdes is brought on a train as bait, to distract the Espheni forces. Weaver later mentions to Tom that Lourdes is still alive but is in bad shape and needs to have her eye worms removed, and that Karen, if she is still alive, may still be using Lourdes to track the 2nd Mass. Later, Hal Mason visits Lourdes, who is shaking and is desperate to get the eye worms out, and Hal conforts her saying he'll be there for her. Later on the road after being kicked out of Charleston by the Volm, Lourdes begins convulsing in agony, and an alien ship lands in the forest near them. The next morning, after Lexi and Anne are brought back to the 2nd Mass, Alexis goes up to a caged Lourdes and touches her face through the bars. Suddenly, dozens of Eye Worms from inside Lourdes come pouring out of her, and they all gather in Alexis' hands, and she crushes them into powder.
After have been 22 days on the road back to Charleston, the 2nd Mass is finally near home and make a stop before crossing the river. It looks like Lourdes and Lexi are playing or running together in the green grass. Lexi is the baby who had grown into a child during her short time as a hostage for Karen. In miraculous way she cured Lourdes in the last season from the eye worms. However, things are not so simple as the Espheni attack. As the Espheni is dropping large obelisks that create a grid that keeps everyone grouped together on the 2nd Mass forces, Tom asks where Matt is but does not know and is told to find him, however as they are separated, Ben grabs Lexi and runs off with her to safety along with Lourdes and Maggie.
Several months later, Lourdes is among those living a peaceful life under the leadership of Lexie. When Ben wakes up she explains everything that has happened, and that Chinatown has not been attacked by the Espheni, but all the places around it has. Ben says that he wants to see Lexi and she takes him to her.
When Ben and Roger want to go talk to Alexis, Lourdes refuses their request, calling Roger a non-believer of Alexis. Later, when Alexis gets blood taken out of her to be tested on, Lourdes tries grabbing the blood from Roger's hand, causing the peace in Chinatown to disrupt and destroying the blood sample.
Lourdes, sits next to Alexis as she talks to the people of Chinatown; when Maggie and Ben walk towards Alexis, Lourdes gets and to stop them. Maggie and Lourdes argue but the two are stopped by Alexis. When Maggies points a gun at Alexis, Lourdes stands in front of her as a shield. Later, after the confrontation, Lourdes is walking by a fountain as Anne and her group find and walk into Chinatown. Lourdes, surprised runs up to Anne and hugs her.
Dingaan Botha picks up Lourdes broadcasting coordinates on a radio, and tells Hal, who identifies Lourdes' voice. Back at Chinatown, Anne and Alexis talk, and Lourdes demands Anthony put down his weapons or leave.
After Lexi gets a sudden high fever, Lourdes stays with Lexi. Later, Lexi asks for Lourdes and she whispers something in her ear. It is revealed that later that night, Lourdes knocked out Anthony and freed the Monk.
Lourdes and Lexi's followers all connect arms to stop the 2nd Mass fighters from killing Alexis, as they think she is dangerous.
When Lexi hatches from the cocoon, Lourdes runs over and wraps a robe around her. When Lexi starts to leave Chinatown, Lourdes stops her and asks to come with her, as Lourdes cannot live without her. She mentions that she saved her, and Lexi replies that Lourdes is in so much pain, so she offers Lourdes a way out. Lourdes tells her that she will always be by her side, and Lexi places her hand on Lourdes' face, using her powers to peacefully kill Lourdes. Lourdes says she is not ready, but it is too late and she is killed. Later, they clean her body and Hal and Anne mourn over her.
When Alexis tries leaving Chinatown, Lourdes stops her and asks to come with her. Lourdes pleads with Alexis, who confuses her wanting to be with her to pain, and offers her a way out. Lourdes accepts, and Lexi places her hand on her shoulder and uses her powers to take the energy out of Lourdes. Lourdes starts to bleed from her eyes, and tries to say she is not ready, but it's too late and she is killed.
