Outline

In Pottsboro, North Texas, Charlie finds herself in trouble in a bar. Monroe arrives and kills everyone in the bar to rescue her. Charlie wakes up in the middle of a thunderstorm with Monroe. He tells Charlie he is doing this as a show of faith. Rachel awakens and leaves the house in search of Miles and her father. The town has been overtaken by the Patriots. Miles, Aaron, and Rachel are suspicious of the Patriots’ role in recent events and set about investigating. Rachel breaks into the Patriots’ office, but gets caught and is removed. Aaron experiences sudden pain, disorientation, and a disturbing dream. Miles follows a lead and investigates Titus’ compound only to discover it seemingly deserted and Titus rifling through paper. Upon discovery, Titus acts crazy and accuses the Patriots of being “unhuman”. After blaming Miles for his wife’s death, Titus fights Miles and is killed. Rachel tells her friend, Ken, everything that has happened to this point. As they visit Ken’s wine cellar, Rachel notices the same eye-and-pyramid symbol the Patriots use and begins to back away. She tries to run, but is captured. Ken reveals that he worked for the Patriots for seven years. She breaks free of her bonds just in time to stab him and buries him. In Savannah, Neville is threatened by another Patriot. He notices needle marks on the officer’s arm and bribes a prostitute for access to the officer at a local brothel/drug house. He offers the officer a deal – he gets promoted and told where Jason is. The officer agrees, but when he cannot tell Neville where Jason is, Neville injects an overdose into him. Neville is promoted in place of the officer, who Secretary Allenford says that has been transferred to another camp. Meanwhile, Miles searches the local train yard and discovers a train car filled with prisoners from Titus’ clan. Miles recognises one of the soldiers in the yard as Titus’ advisor. Miles is discovered spying and attempts to flee, only to be cornered. Aaron’s dreams and Miles’ reality somehow overlap and cause the officers to catch on fire, allowing Miles to escape. Miles and Rachel discuss what happened, the conversation ending with Miles declaring that every occupation needs a resistance. The last scene is Charlie and Monroe on a wagon riding towards Willoughby.
