When the group learns of a Patriot plot to use mustard gas against the Texas Republic to incite a war between Texas and California, they hijack a train carrying what they believe to be the gas. Meanwhile, Rachel learns of the nanotech’s experiments, and along with Aaron attempts to save Priscilla. That night, with the train now stopped, Monroe, Connor and Neville hold the group at gunpoint. Neville holds Charlie at gunpoint, but during the ensuing struggle a shot is fired and the group learns that the tanker was empty. Back in Willoughby, the Patriots invite General Carver and the Texas Rangers to a courthouse where the President makes his speech. Marion learns of the Patriots’ plan to use the gas at the courthouse, but is discovered and killed by Truman. Miles, Monroe, Charlie and Gene make their way back to Willoughby, but a lone Patriot officer deploys the gas.
