After the group is reunited, Charlie and Monroe save Gene from the Patriots and escape to a farmhouse. Gene helps Miles tend his injury. The next day, Aaron stands next to Cynthia’s grave, wondering why the nanotech told him to go to Spring City, Oklahoma the previous day. Meanwhile, when Miles wakes up, Monroe asks him where his son is. Miles tells him that his son is in Mexico and his name is Connor. Miles, Rachel and Monroe then travel to Mexico to find Connor, although Rachel is not happy going with Monroe as he killed her son. Meanwhile, Aaron leaves the farmhouse and journeys to Spring City, Oklahoma. Gene and Charlie discover that Aaron is gone. When Miles, Rachel and Monroe enter Mexico, Monroe discovers that Connor became part of the Mexican cartel. Connor recognises Miles at the bar. After Monroe reveals everything to his son, Connor threatens him and tells his father to go away. That night, Monroe blames Miles for sending his son to Mexico, which led Connor to become like this. Monroe goes back to talk to Connor. Connor tells his father that he knows Miles sent him to Mexico to keep him safe from Monroe. Monroe tells him that he and Connor should take back and lead the Monroe Republic. Then, one of members of the Mexican cartel captures Monroe, and Connor has him detained. Rachel and Miles realize that Monroe has been captured. Meanwhile, Gene notices two wagons being brought to Willoughby by the Patriots. Meanwhile, Neville, Julia, Jason and the Patriots, including Commander Roger Allenford, head to Washington D.C. and enter the White House, where a party is being held. Julia’s new husband, Victor Doyle, who is a member of the Patriots, is going to be promoted. Julia and Neville decide to kill the current Chief of Staff, Bill Harlow, so that Doyle can be promoted to Chief of Staff. After this succeeds, Julia will force Doyle to let Neville be promoted into his security detail. Neville attempts to poison Harlow’s drink, but gets distracted and fails. Neville manages to enter Harlow’s room and kills him by putting poison in his throat. Meanwhile, outside of Willoughby, Charlie kills two Patriot members. Charlie and Gene discover that the Patriots were bringing oranges to the town. Aaron arrives in Spring City but no one is there. Aaron is devastated by Cynthia’s death and wants to know why he was brought here. He encounters Grace Beaumont.
