Outline

Charlie and Rachel race to Gene’s aid as he suffers a crisis from his illness. He stops breathing, but they manage to revive him. Connor holds Truman prisoner, with Truman urging a soldier to shoot Connor, but before the soldier can shoot he is killed by Miles. Connor handcuffs the other soldiers and delivers the antidote to Rachel and Charlie. They load Gene into a wagon and depart the quarantine camp, but Truman escapes and injects the antidote into him. Monroe, Connor and Charlie depart for New Vegas, where Monroe intends to hire mercenaries. They meet Duncan, a female warlord, and Monroe wants to talk to her, but she tells them to walk back. Charlie then pulls a gun on her, but Monroe convinces both Duncan’s guards and Charlie to stand down. He bargains with Duncan for some of her men. During the night, Charlie and Connor are lying under a blanket together, talking about what they have just done, when Monroe comes in, obviously upset with them. Back at camp, Miles and Rachel go to the “drive-in” together. Rachel says “I think 20 years is plenty of foreplay”, and they kiss. In order to get the diamonds to pay Duncan, Monroe, Connor and Charlie hatch a plan to rob the casino. Monroe agrees to be in a prize fight that night, drawing the guards away. Connor pretends to be drunk and falls in the casino, drawing attention while Charlie escapes with the diamond lock box, later revealed to be a fake. Connor retrieves the real one, but he and Monroe are caught before leaving New Vegas. Neville is being held captive at the capital, where he is clearly malnourished and abused. He is brought to President Jack Davis. The President threatens Neville with Julia’s safety to get Neville to hunt down Monroe and assassinate him. Neville tells the President that he needs Jason to come with him. After arriving at Willoughby, Texas, Neville and Jason meet with Truman, who tells them if they fail, he’ll send word to Washington and order Julia to be killed. Later, Neville finds Miles’ camp and swears to him that he wants to get revenge on the Patriots for the death of his wife. Aaron and Priscilla arrive in Lubbock, Texas, where they find Peter, the third member of their MIT nanotech developing group. Peter is a born-again Christian, who is working miracles thanks to the nanotech’s help. A blind and burned woman who was in the Atlanta bombing is brought forward and Peter prays over her, with both Aaron and Priscilla seeing the fireflies over him. In front of his church, Peter completely heals her. Peter locks Aaron and Priscilla in a room after they reveal the truth, saying that the people’s faith cannot waver.
