Outline

Now in Willoughby, Miles and the group successfully stop the mustard gas attack on the courthouse, but during the ensuing chaos, Truman, along with the President and General Carver, escape. Believing their plan to be in ruin, Truman shoots Carver dead, and then shoots himself and the President in the arm, and informs the President that this is Plan B. Back at the house, with the nanotech-controlled Priscilla out of control, Aaron reaches out and helps free her from their control by confessing his love for her. The next day, when Miles hears news that the President has blamed him, along with Monroe and the California commonwealth, for Carver’s death, he comes up with a plan to kidnap the President to prevent a war between Texas and California. While en route to Austin with the President, the group is attacked by Patriot officers. When Miles allows Monroe to take the President ahead, Monroe takes him to an abandoned building where he meets Connor. When Monroe fails to reason with Connor, Neville opens fire, forcing Monroe to leave along with the President before trapping them both in a building. With his plan now in motion, and seemingly caught by the Patriots, Miles tricks the President into confessing his involvement in Carver’s death to the Texas Rangers dressed as Patriot officers. Meanwhile, the Texas Republic declares war on the Patriots, and at a nearby camp, an order is given to shoot any Patriots on sight. Priscilla awakens and tells Aaron of a terrifying vision she experienced as the nanotech lost control of her, that of millions of humans under the nanotech’s control, and that of a grinning man. Meanwhile, the nanotech appears to Neville in the form of his son Jason, Truman in the form of Marion, and the imprisoned President as his father, informing them that they have to travel to Bradbury, Idaho. Later that night, in the Wasteland (Bradbury, Idaho), the nanotech restores power to several buildings, including a clown sign, and a large crowd of people walks toward it.
