Grace, Jake, and Norm were arrested for having an alliance with the Na'vi and not having them evacuated from Hometree, so Trudy and Max rescued them. Quaritch and Selfridge quickly discovered this, so Quaritch tracked down Trudy's ship and blasted at it, hitting Grace. Jake pleaded to Mo'at, Neytiri, and the Na'vi for forgiveness and the life of his friend, so the Na'vi tried to transfer her soul and mind permanately into her avatar's body. They tried very hard, but she died in Jake's arms whispering,"I am with Eywa now. She is real."
