Jake, Johnston, and Jimmy come into Mary’s bar and hear a special report
on the radio. Jimmy remarks that he has heard that voice before and he has a
funny expression on his face. Jake asks Jimmy what is wrong, but Jimmy
refuses to answer. The special report indicates that the terrorists that
were apprehended had nearly perfect fake F.B.I. badges. Robert continues to
watch his family’s activities via satellite. The camera scans down to the
desk and they show his fake F.B.I. badge.
In the city, Robert and Darcy enjoy a night out on the town. They are
kissing and enjoying themselves. They start to get into a cab when Robert
looks across the street and sees a member of his group. Darcy asks him what
is wrong, but he doesn’t answer. Robert wakes up and opens his eyes but
remains in bed. He then realizes that he is by himself in the bed. He swings
his legs out of the bed and sits up remaining on the side of the bed for a
few minutes. He enters the kitchen and stands as he eats cold cereal at the
sink. He walks over to the table and picks up the text messenger. It has a
message on it from the buyer asking him when they can meet again. Robert
gets his coat on and leaves the house. As he goes out the door, squats down,
and puts a paper clip in the door.
Jake and Emily walk and talk. Jake informs her that going back to school
isn’t high on his list of priorities. They meet up with Jimmy in the street
and he asks them if he can borrow Jake for a few minutes saying that he
needs his help with something .Emily leaves. Jake questions Jimmy as to what
is wrong. Jimmy reminds him of the radio broadcast that they heard last week
about the terrorists being apprehended and about the fake F.B.I. badges.
Jimmy lets him know that he has seen one of those badges before. Jake,
immediately, wants to know where.
Jimmy and Jake go to Hawkins’ house. Jake stands outside as Jimmy goes
inside. Jake tells him that he is no lawyer, but asks if this is considered
breaking and entering. Jimmy corrects him and tells him that it is probable
cause. Jake tells him that is “paranoid use of authority.” He also tells
Jimmy that they need to hurry before Hawkins comes home and catches them.
Jimmy tells him that Robert Hawkins has an F.B.I. badge. Jake suggests that
Hawkins may be F.B.I. Jimmy doesn’t buy Jake’s theory. Jimmy lets him know
that when he had questioned Hawkins’ family they all told him that Hawkins
was F.B.I., but they each had a funny expression on their face. Jimmy
suggests that Hawkins is out on patrol and will be gone for a while so he
asks him to go in with him. Jake squats down and finds a paper clip in the
door. He is deep in thought.
They show the map of the United States as Jimmy and Jake start down the
stairs. Jake questions Jimmy if he broke the lock open. Jimmy and Jake start
to look around. Jimmy opens the desk drawer and finds a whole drawer full of
different badges that Hawkins used with different names. Jake asks Jimmy if
Gray knows about this. Jimmy informs him that no one knows yet, saying that
he wanted a second opinion before he told anyone else. Jake opens his hand
and shows him the paper clip.
Robert comes up to the door. He looks down to see if the paper clip is still
there that he placed in the door. He reaches down and takes the paper clip
out. Going inside, he immediately goes downstairs. Looking around, Hawkins
notices that someone had been there. He starts to pull out his gun, but he
is startled by a noise. Jake comes out of his hiding place with a gun held
on him. Jake demands to know who he is.
Jake demands that Robert slide over his gun, nice and slow. Jake asks if he
is a terrorist. Hawkins wonders why he would even say that. Jake points out
that he has a map of the United States, food, and a working generator. Jake
also points out that it was like he knew that the attacks were coming. Jake
tells him that he is going to have a many more people to deal with. Hawkins
tells him again that he is an F.B.I. agent. Jake tells him, sarcastically,
that he had heard that. Jake points to a room and asks Hawkins, “What is
that room?” Jake orders him to tell him how is he involved in all of this.
Hawkins just looks at him.
In the schoolroom, Emily stands in front of a map of the United States the
way it was before the attacks happened. She turns the map over and shows
them a map of the United States the way it is now. She points out that they
would have to look toward their history to make things better. One of the
boys holds up his hand and asks if she is going to take attendance. She
replies to him, “no.“ The boy points out that this stuff isn’t important.
All the children leave except Allison. Allison points out to Emily that she
isn’t wanted at home so she thought she would just stay here.
At the Stanley farm, Mimi sits outside on a stump talking to one of the
chickens. She picks up an axe. She tells the one chicken sitting in front of
her that she would completely freak out if part of the chicken was going one
way and the other part was going another way. She asks the chicken to keep
it to a minimum. Mimi looks at the chicken and puts the axe back into the
stump. She remarks to herself that she will be back to eating sprouts.
Johnston is in a tree house, looking through binoculars when Harry comes up
to join him. Harry asks him if he is really looking for deer. Johnston asks
him what he wants and he tells Johnston that he needs his help in the
mayor’s office while Gray is out sick. Johnston tells him that it isn’t his
job anymore and tells him to get lost so he can hunt deer. Johnston picks up
his rifle and tells Harry that he is beginning to look an awfully lot like a
deer. Harry leaves.
Hawkins tells Jake that he had been with the F.B.I. for fifteen years. Jake
questions him as to where he went to college. Jake wants to know why he was
sent here and Hawkins tells him that he was sent here to monitor the calls
that were made in the area. Jake looks at the pictures on the bulletin board
and asks Hawkins to tell him about Sarah Mason. Hawkins says that she is
gone as he reaches inside a drawer and draws out a gun. He points it as
Jake. Jake lets him know that there is one loaded gun in the house and it is
his. He orders Hawkins to sit down and put his hands behind his back. Jake
handcuffs him to the chair. Jake begins to question Hawkins again about what
he is doing in Jericho. Hawkins tells him that he visited the Higgins
Satellite, and upon entering, the receptionist asked him how the weather was
out there. The receptionist had a gun in her hand and Hawkins told her that
it looked like rain. The receptionist pushed two buttons that allowed
Hawkins to gain entrance so he thanked her.
As Hawkins enters the room, everyone is seated around a table. Williams
meets him and shakes hands with him. Williams remarks that Hawkins knows
everyone there and seated at the table also is Sarah Mason. Hawkins
introduces himself to Sarah Mason. Williams tells them to get down to it.
Williams tells them that one of the nukes is missing. Sarah asks Williams if
Al Qaeda was responsible for these explosions. Williams explains that this
group is composed of three different groups and their main objective was to
overthrow the government. Williams explains that their job was to infiltrate
these groups and find the missing nukes. Williams also tells them that they
are Americans. Williams divides the group into groups of two to infiltrate
the different cells.
Jake questions Hawkins if he expects him to believe that he was sent here
undercover. Hawkins tells him that it is over there under the mantle. Jake
takes out the blueprint and looks at it. He questions Hawkins as to how he
had gotten this map which showed Jericho outside of the fault line. Hawkins
points out all the advantages that Jericho had to offer.
Gail goes to the cemetery to visit April Green’s grave. She talks to April
as if she were right there with her. She lets April know that Johnston would
have been there. Gail kisses her fingertips and then places them on the
Mimi comes into the kitchen and finds Shawn eating something out of a bowl.
He informs her that there are no more sprouts. Mimi demands to know what he
is doing here at 9:00 in the morning. Shawn comes out from behind the
counter and he is only in his shorts and a shirt. Mimi asks him if he spent
the night here and orders him out of the house. Bonnie comes into the
kitchen and gives Shawn a good morning kiss. Mimi confronts Bonnie about her
letting Shawn spend the night. Mimi lets Bonnie know that that wouldn’t be
something that Stanley would approve of.
Hawkins lets Jake know that it had taken him two years to infiltrate the
terrorist cell. Hawkins also lets him know that the only person he had
corresponded with was his handler. Hawkins also lets Jake know that he had
given the others their fake F.B.I. badges to prove his loyalty to the
terrorist cell. Hawkins informs him that he had wanted to hear this so he
would want to hear it all. Hawkins, in the meantime, is trying his best to
get out of the handcuffs.
Hawkins still toys with the handcuffs to get them open. He explains that the
cell was looking for I.Ds, and he had to manage to get himself higher up in
the cell. He tells Jake that he was sent along with another cell member to
make the buy. After they made the deal and start to leave, Hawkins saw
helicopters overhead and the F.B.I arrived. Hawkins is handcuffed. It turns
out that Hawkins’ partner in the deal was an F.B.I. Informant. Hawkins
blasts the group for his cover almost being blown. The group informs him
that his cover is still intact. Hawkins recommends that they take down the
cells that they have already infiltrated. Sarah thinks that there may be a
way to get further inside the cells. Hawkins tells Sarah that she had better
be right about this.
Hawkins asks Jake what he would have done.
Gail comes up to the tree house where Johnston is. Gail reminds him that he
had told her that he would go with her today to visit April’s grave.
Johnston doesn’t answer her. Gail tells Johnston that there are no deer in
these woods and that the woods have been picked clean. Gail leaves without
saying another word.
Mimi once again sits on a stump, talking to the chicken. In the background,
you can see Shawn and Bonnie ride up on horseback. Shawn helps Bonnie down
from the horse. Mimi gets up to talk to Bonnie. Mimi tells Bonnie that she
can’t stop her from seeing Shawn, but he was no longer welcome in this house
and Bonnie just looks at her.
Emily and Allison set up the chairs in the classroom. Emily asks her why she
feels that she can’t hang out at home. Allison tells her that it isn’t that
she doesn’t want to talk about it, but her family is weird. Allison tells
her that something went down at her house a couple of weeks ago and that it
was something that she had done. She also explains that she had done
something that can’t be forgiven and her Mother now looks at her
differently. She tells Emily that her Mother looks at her like she is some
kind of a monster.
Hawkins also tells him that the only way that he could get deeper in the
cell is to leave the bombs in play as they were now. Hawkins relives the
past in which he was going to help a young man get away before the head of
the cell caught up with him. There is a knock on the door and it is the head
of the cell along with some of his henchman. When the young man finds out
who is outside, he splits through the window. Hawkins and the young man
escape down the fire escape. When they get to the bottom, Hawkins kills the
young man so it will look good in front of the head of the cell and his
henchman. Hawkins also explains that after this, he was deeper into the
cell. Hawkins further explains that it was either kill him or let millions
of people die. Jake reminds him that millions died anyway. Hawkins manages
to get loose from the handcuffs, and gets the upper hand on Jake. Jake falls
to the floor and Hawkins holds his gun on him.
Hawkins continues to hold the gun on Jake. Just about this time, Jimmy yells
at Jake from upstairs. Hawkins tells Jake not to make him kill Jimmy. Jake
gets up and meets Jimmy as he gets to where they are. Jimmy asks Jake if
everything is alright. Jake tells him that they just need a little more
time. Jimmy goes back upstairs. Hawkins holds the gun on Jake and tells him
to turn around. He lays both guns on the table. Jake tells him that he needs
to know everything. Hawkins tells him that he is through talking and now he
wants to show him something.
Darcy is waiting outside the school when Allison comes out. She takes
Allison by the arm and Allison tells her that she didn’t think that she
wanted her around the house anyway. Darcy tells her that she loves her and
nothing will change that. Allison begins to cry as she and Darcy hug.
In a storage building out back, Hawkins begins to remove boards. Jake
wonders if Hawkins has gotten in deeper with the terrorist and why. Hawkins
tells him that someone tipped off the terrorists. Hawkins relives getting
the key and the name of the city to take the bomb to--it was Columbus, Ohio.
He remembers his date with Darcy when he saw the man across the street.
Hawkins meets with the man who tells him that they need him back. Hawkins
gets his next assignment. Hawkins tells Darcy that he has a meeting to go
to. Darcy walks off without letting him explain. Hawkins reveals the atomic
bomb to Jake.
Jake is speechless when he sees the bomb. Jimmy begins to yell for Jake.
Hawkins tells him that he had to know that he could trust him before he told
him everything. Hawkins tells him that it is left up to him now. Jake goes
back to meet with Jimmy. Jake tells him that Hawkins is F.B.I. just as he
Mimi comes into the kitchen with a dead chicken in her hand. Mimi and Bonnie
have a heart to heart talk. Mimi tells Bonnie that she and Stanley are
important to her and she wants Bonnie to be safe. Bonnie promises to try,
Johnston climbs up into the tree house and finds Gail there with some
dinner. She tells him she brought him some dinner and then she leaves.
Hawkins lies in bed and relives the past. He goes downstairs and gets on the
computer. He realizes that the bald man in the pictures, who is the Head of
Homeland Security is also the head of the terrorists.
