Outline

Grace leaves Aaron and Priscilla in Spring City, Oklahoma. Aaron receives a visit from the nanotech taking the appearance of Cynthia, saying that he and Priscilla have to go to Lubbock, Texas. After arriving at Willoughby, Miles, Monroe, Rachel and Connor discover that a typhus outbreak has hit the town. Rachel decides to infiltrate the quarantine camp. Meanwhile, in the quarantine camp, Gene and Charlie are forced to work together with Truman and the Patriots in order to save the town. Rachel shows up to help the ill and to get more information about the disease. She finds out that the Patriots are poisoning people with problems (epilepsy, alcohol addiction) to make a pure race and are using the outbreak as a cover. She assumes that the Patriots have an antidote for the virus they created, and when Gene becomes sick she sends a note to Miles and Monroe to get it. Miles and Monroe are outside the camp, and they look for the antidote in a Patriots’ warehouse. Not finding anything, they kidnap Truman, injecting him with infected blood to force him to reveal the location of the antidote. Connor accompanies Truman into his office where he can retrieve the antidote. However, he is surrounded by Patriot soldiers before he can leave, holding Truman at gunpoint. In Washington, Julia and Neville try to get information about the incarceration of their son Jason. Julia searches her new husband’s office and finds out that he is in Kenilworth Prison. Julia and Neville try to capture her husband, Doyle, Chief of Staff, in order to force him to show them to their son. However, he learns of their plan and has them both arrested.

Flashback: Two years after the blackout Julia and Neville murder two campers to get food for their sick child Jason.
