Hal, who apparently has a death wish, tries to argue that Weaver is going to need every fighter possible. Weaver tells him that there will be other battles after today, but only if people know that the Skitters can be hit hard. So, the fact that all of their best fighters are dead is supposed to give people hope? I think someone is still too speedy to have thought all of this through to its logical conclusion. Hal doth protest some more, but Weaver is emphatic about wanting him to go back and tell everyone that the fighters of the 2nd Mass carried out an attack against the alien structure over Boston and that the resistance drew blood. But they don't even know that the resistance drew blood yet! They haven't even attacked anything! Weaver is asking Hal to tell tall tales. Or, as he puts it, give people hope. He tells Hal that he can lead the next fight, and the one after that. Of course, he'll have no fighters to help him in those battles, because they'll all be dead.
Anthony pats Hal on the shoulder and tells him to be careful. He totally wishes that Weaver had sent him off for the hope-giving duty. As Hal zooms off, Anthony asks Weaver if there is a Plan C. The answer is basically: not really. Or, as Weaver puts it, "Improvise." Their objective is to get the explosive as close to the structure as possible. Anthony and Pope are forced to ride together in the sweet GTO. Soon they will be clutching hands and flying off a cliff together! I hope that Pope has a lovely headscarf.
Back at the school, Matt is having one of his whiny episodes. He pouts that doesn't want to pack up and evacuate unless Tom is going to be with him. Matt also thinks that Tom is still mad at him for pallin' around with terrorists -- e.g. Pope. Tom says that he was angry and Matt promises never to do it again. But Tom says that he probably will do it again and Tom probably will call him on it again. Ah, the intricate dialogue of a father-son bonding moment. Tom is basically like, "Blah blah, growing up is hard, also I love you. Let's hug." Tom passes Matt off on Lourdes, and the parade of civvies heads out. Anne sees Sarah, the lady who used Weaver as her doula, on her way out with little baby Charlotte. Anne approaches Sarah to say that Charlotte is beautiful. Wouldn't Anne have seen Charlotte like 100 times by now in the clinic, for her baby checkups? Anyway, fucking Sarah goes, "She's more than that, she's a miracle." That lady needs a solid cock-punching. Who at this point would be looking forward to traveling miles on foot to an unknown destination with a weeks-old baby? And then, hey! There are two little African-American twins ahead of her who were most definitely not with the gang that went to Doom Farm. Though at this point, consistency with extras is really the least of our worries.
