Set in both the heart and outside of City 17, "The Citizen Returns" contains the final chapters of our citizen's story, as well as an updated version of Part II.

Larry is now a symbol for the rebellion and a key asset in a bigger plot to deal a fatal blow to the Combine and its grip on humankind...

Verify the game files of Half-life 2 Ep2 (right-click menu on the Steam shortcut for Ep2)

Chapter "Out on a Wing" only loads with three of the rebels, instead of the four that went in, and then nothing happens.

This has sadly been reported before.
-If you restart the level via the game console, all four NPCs will show up (you'll lose ammo and easter eggs that you had up until then)
-If you 'noclip' out of that area, you will miss the briefing (Argento is the one usually missing) but the rest of the map will work fine.
-If you reload your latest saved game in the previous map, chances are the map transition might work properly the next time.

As a side note, do you remember if you went with all of them through the last door or did you wait some time? Knowing that might help solve the issue for a fix.
