Back in the present, Hawkins tells Jake that the group was broken up into teams of two. One member went undercover in the cell, and the other member acted as a handler. Heh, only because I watched Alias do I know what handlers are. Jake wants to know why Hawkins would be sent to Jericho for undercover work. Why is Jericho so special? "You know, I would show you," Hawkins says, "But..." he gestures lamely with his handcuffed hands. "Yeah, that's clever," Jake snarks. Hawkins tells Jake to get something out from behind the map. Jake pulls out a tube of paper and unrolls it. It's a map of the U.S. from the Defense Department, projecting fallout scenarios in the case of a strategic nuclear attack on twenty U.S. cities. Hawkins points out that Jericho is outside the fallout zones. Jericho also has salt mines, plenty of farmland, and access to an untainted water table. "So, you weren't here to monitor phone calls," Jake points out. Hawkins says Jericho was a rally point in case they failed in their mission. "Failed?" Jake repeats angrily, "Or succeeded?" Well, that is the question of the night, isn't it?
