Back at Camp 2nd Mass, Crazy Weaver is upset at the Riverbottom Nightmare situation and takes no comfort from the fact that Billy is bleeding out. Anne is still in the room, and Weaver tells her to stay, so she hears all of this. Hal staunchly defends his dad, who Weaver clearly thinks is a dumb-ass. Mike is there too, and wonders how they'll make the trade of car and weapons for Tom and his crew. Weaver has a simple answer: they won't. Basically, he doesn't negotiate with terrorists. He wants to wake the civilians and get them ready to move again. Hal can't believe he's planning on running. Crazy Weaver says that he'd love to go and fight this band of degenerates, but they have no idea where to find them since Hal's head was covered with a bag for both legs of his journey. Well, I mean, they walked, right? So it can't be too far. The fact that it looked like a school auditorium is not helpful, says Weaver, since they have no idea how many schools are in Acton. Well, how many are within walking distance from the armory? He's really not trying very hard at all. He says that if he only had fighters and no civilians, they'd go back. I think that is lies. After they're all safe in the factory that Mike found, Weaver says they'll go and look for Tom. Again, I think that's low on his to-do list. Hal wants to go back on his own, so Weaver instructs Mike to keep an eye and gun on him until it's time to go. Mike moves him into the room next door, and tells Hal to pretend that he's overpowered him and taken his weapon. Hal asks if he should hit Mike for the sake of realness and Mike is all, "No." Hal does lock Mike in a closet, though. Anne sneaks up behind Hal, as is her wont, and says that she might be able to help him.
After a break, Hal and Anne are running, looking for Maggie. She's right behind them, wondering where the 50 cal is. Of course they don't have it, but Anne does say that she's a doctor and might be able to patch up Billy's artery. Maggie tells Anne that if she chooses to go to the Riverbottom HQ she might never leave. Anne is going to take her chances, because how sad would it be if Tom died before they even got to have their first kiss? Cut to Pope giving Billy some alcohol and asking if the pain is bad or wicked bad. This is yet another sign that they are quality New England-style hicks. Though, full disclosure, I drop a "wicked" every now and again, usually while I'm washing down my quahogs with some coffee milk or water from the bubbler. Rhode Island, represent! Anyway, Pope is not initially very excited about the lack of the GTO and the 50 cal, but his interest is piqued when Anne says that she's a doctor. He asks what kind and she quite correctly says, "The only one you've got." Pope checks her bag, which I guess has doctoring stuff inside of it. She asks if he'll let them leave if she fixes Billy and Pope says that he'll let them live. This is exactly why you don't negotiate with terrorists! This round goes to Crazy Weaver.
