Angry Broken center mount screw repair [Any1?]

Hey guys, thanks for a great site.
Just finished installing a new guibo and center mount, everything went great UNTIL I fastened the last bolt.
The first bolt was fastened, and the last one, well, pictures say it all.
I found out the hard way that these bolts are 80% plastic, and the last one just came out when I was tightening it.

It's pretty frustrating, and I'm just looking for some good advices how to repair this.
Really just need the center mount stuck for good.

Would really appreciate if anyone who has had a similar problem could help me out with this.

]Take the mount off and grab it with a pliers? Drill it and use an EasyOut? Drill it out and retap? Drill it and helicoil it?
