|...To Kingdom Come|
Marked: ?. Minimum kills: ?
- Check it out: Eesh has a recording session in a few minutes. That's when we make her disappear and give the Vice Kings a nice "fuck you" while we're at it. I want you to take Aisha to her session, but on the way stop at the chop shop to have your ride loaded up with some C4. Park the car at the studio and get the hell outta there. Eesh, make sure someone sees you before you jump out.
The Protagonist meets with Johnny Gat and Aisha, who are having an argument at the church; Gat is angry at Aisha for leaving the Row and signing with the Vice Kings' record label, Kingdom Come Records, in her pursuit for stardom. However, Aisha has returned to request for Gat's help: she wants to leave the label as they are extorting her. Gat and Aisha plan to fake her death by bombing Kingdom Come Records while everyone believes she is inside, thereby allowing Gat to damage the Vice Kings and help out an old friend.
The Protagonist loads up Aisha's Zomkah with C4 explosives and, after dealing with an obsessive fan, drives her to Kingdom Come Records. After checking in with the receptionist, she quickly exits out the back of the building just before the car bomb detonates, destroying the building and killing everyone inside.
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
It can be read in-game upon completion of the mission by pausing the game, and selecting 'Story' from the 'INFO' tab.
- Get into Aisha's car.
- Drive to the garage.
Drive to Samson's garage. The route is marked on the map.
Samson says the explosives in the vehicle are not stable, and heavy collisions and gunshots will set them off once the bar empties.
- Get rid of Aisha's stalker!
- HUD: Car Bomb meter and timer.
An obsessive fan begins following, Aisha says he has stalking for a while.
The fastest course of action is to quickly exit the Zomkah so the fan shoots The Protagonist and not the vehicle, and kill the fan by shooting him. He can take a fair amount of damage, but eventually dies.
He can also be easily lost by weaving around traffic or buildings. If he loses sight of Aisha, he does not immediately despawn, and can be located, and which point he gets out of his Anchor and runs away.
There is no specific mission failure related to the stalker, but he can easily set of the Car Bomb and destroy the Zomkah.
- You need to lose the stalker before you can drop off Aisha.
This objective is only triggered by entering the marker at Kingdom Come Records while the stalker is still following.
- He's gone, now get to the studio.
Once he is no longer persuing, simply drive to the building. There is generous timer which grants an absurdly large amount of time to get to the destination.
On the way, a Peterliner and two Five-Os are blocking the way across the nearest bridge. Either drive to the next bridge to get across, or slowly wedge the car between the vehicles and barriers, and then drive across the bridge. No other obstacles present themselves, but be wary of crashing.

- Jack Armstrong: "Jack Armstrong in the newsroom. Er, we are just receiving word of a disaster at... one moment... the location is just coming into us, what do we have? ... It is the Kingdom Come Records building downtown... Apparently some sort of massive explosion has occurred... I'm sorry, what's that? ... We have fire and rescue, they're on their way. We do not have many details at this time, but we do know that the force of the explosion was immense as the building was leveled. We are following this story closely here in the newsroom - we will bring you details as they occur. I'm Jack Armstrong."
- Aisha carries a Baseball Bat and either a SKR-7 Spree or a 12 Gauge.
- Samson's line, "Alright man, you ain't got a lot of time, so hurry. One more thing. That shit in your car ain't exactly stable. I wouldn't hit anything if I were you", is also used in Los Carnales mission, "Possession with Intent".
- Aisha's stalker drives an Anchor with no roof attachments - it is not possible to enter his vehicle during the mission, but the vehicle becomes enterable after exiting the mission once the stalker is dead. Because the Anchor cannot be modified at Rim Jobs, this is the only way to obtain a plain anchor in Saints Row.
- The receptionist shares the same character model with the man who lends Lin his lighter in "Guardian Angel".
- When replaying this mission at a Theater, the Kingdom Come Records building is already destroyed.
- "The 7 Day Theory" is the album name from the famous rap artist 2Pac, who died in a drive-by in 1996. There are so many clues in the album that fans and people assume he's not actually dead and is (still) faking his dead. Just like Aisha.
- It is a mission objective to drive Aisha's car into Samson's Garage - this is the only time the garage door opens during the game, and it is possible to exit the vehicle and walk inside. It looks identical to a usable Rim Jobs.
"Old Friends" cutsceneEdit
- Aisha: "God, you haven't changed at all, have you?"
Johnny Gat: "Not all of us have a couple million dollars to make changes."
Aisha: "It's always the same shit with you."
Johnny Gat: "Oh, here we go again."
Aisha: "What did you want me to do? Did you expect me not to take my shot?"
Johnny Gat: "No, I expected you to remember where you came from."
Aisha: "Oh, fuck you Johnny."
Johnny Gat: "Fuck me? Fuck you! You're the one who ran off to be famous. The only time you remember who we are is when you want something."
Aisha: "My sister was kidnapped!"
Johnny Gat: "And I brought her back didn't I?"
Aisha: "No, he did."
Johnny Gat: "Bullshit, I told him to do it. No offense."
Aisha: "Look, if you're gonna help me, help me, but don't you dare try to hold it over me."
Johnny Gat: "Fine."
Johnny Gat: "Fine."
Johnny Gat: "Relax man; I'd like you to meet Saint's Row's claim to fame. This... is Aisha. And tonight we're gonna kill her."
Aisha: "He's being melodramatic. See, I'm signed with Kingdom Come Records."
Johnny Gat: "And it's no secret that the label is owned by the Vice Kings."
Aisha: "But the real deal is that once you're in you can't get out. They rip you off left and right, and they extort you to stay signed. I've talked to Johnny and he said that you might be willing to help me."
Johnny Gat: "Check it out: Eesh has a recording session in a few minutes. That's when we make her disappear and give the Vice Kings a nice "fuck you" while we're at it. I want you to take Aisha to her session, but on the way stop at the chop shop to have your ride loaded up with some C4. Park the car at the studio and get the hell outta there. Eesh, make sure someone sees you before you jump out."
Aisha: "Johnny, I really appreciate--"
Johnny Gat: "Whatever, I was gonna blow that place up anyway."

Aisha: "I never should've gotten mixed up with the Vice Kings."
Aisha: "So uh, you don't talk much do you?"
Aisha: "Hey hey hey, slow down, we don't want to hit anything."
Aisha: "We're not gonna make it. Why did I let Johnny talk me into this?"
Aisha: "Right on time."
