Outline

Miles and Rachel are interrogating a captured Patriot soldier when they are informed by Charlie about a statement Truman made to the town, claiming Miles and Aaron were behind the store bombing. Rachel tells Charlie that the Patriots will never stop looking for them unless they kill Horn. After realising the Patriot HQ is in the town paper factory, they devise a plan to send Rachel to drop poisonous gas into the factory. Monroe, Aaron, and Cynthia are waiting for Miles to come for them. Cynthia asks Aaron if he killed Carl, her ex-husband, and he says he did but he can’t control his powers. Aaron breaks down in tears and asks Cynthia to leave him alone. They are discovered by Patriot soldiers sent by Horn, who Monroe attempts to fight off. On the verge of being overwhelmed by too many Patriots, Monroe flees, leaving Aaron and Cynthia to be captured. Miles calls off the mission when Gene enters the factory, but Rachel continues anyway. As Rachel prepares to drop the poison, Aaron and Cynthia are led into the factory. Miles stops her just in time. Inside the factory, a drugged Aaron begs Horn to let Cynthia go. Cynthia realises Gene is there and that he is collaborating with the Patriots. Horn refuses to let her go, saying she is assurance that Aaron will not torch the factory, and orders Gene to leave. As Cynthia sits in a cell, she hears Aaron screaming from being tortured by Horn. Horn observes Aaron’s skin healing when cut. Miles, Rachel, and Charlie kidnap Gene and question him. He says the Patriots were the ones who gave him the medicine way back when and he took it. Truman shows up demanding they all come out. Gene emerges, alone, and holds a knife to Truman’s throat. The soldiers chase Miles, Rachel, and Charlie. Truman holds a gun to Gene’s head and takes him back to the factory. Horn brings Cynthia into the room to see if Aaron can heal her when they cut her. Aaron screams as they stab her in the back and the fire flashes. Meanwhile, in North Carolina, Neville walks into a Patriot camp to see Commander Roger Allenford. When asked his business, Neville holds up a ring. He convinces Allenford that although the commander’s wife is alive, she is an enemy of the Patriots. Neville says if Allenford brings his own wife in for justice, it would raise his standing in the eyes of the Patriots. Neville further convinces the commander that bringing her in would ultimately protect Allenford’s son and the commander’s life. At the barn where Justine Allenford is being held captive, she asks Roger (her husband) to kill Neville and Jason and then run away with her, but Roger says there is no place to run to and shoots her.

Flashback: Eighteen years before the Blackout, when Horn was young, his mother is dying of sickness, and his father tries to heal his wife through prayer rather than medicine. He offers to get help for his mother, but his father will not allow it. However, Horn gets prescription drugs from his friend’s house to save his mother. When he gives the medicine to his mother, she dies. After he discovers what happened, his father blames him for her death.
