When some of the creatures escape, Newt finds himself in a race against time to retrieve them before they cause havoc in the city. Along the way, he encounters a No-Maj (non-magical person) named Jacob, a determined witch named Tina, and her mind-reading sister Queenie. Together, they uncover a dark conspiracy that threatens to expose the wizarding world to the No-Majs.

However, Grindelwald escapes custody and disappears. Newt decides to stay in New York to write his book about magical creatures, while Tina and Queenie reconcile with their respective love interests.
