At the Med Center, Eric -- who doesn't look as though anyone has seen to his injuries, even though the New Bern Away Team dropped him off there more than three hours ago -- looks into the room where April died and has some serious flashbacks. Mom arrives, rushes at him tearfully, and takes him off to patch him up.
Gray has gathered other Jerichoians (the seven Biblically relevant farmers, I assume?) to argue about the ultimatum. Way to wait until the last minute, Mayor. As Gray insists that they aren't going to give anything to New Bern, one farmer leaves. Scenting blood in the water, Frodale and Skylar follow her out. Frodale insists, "You cannot give away that farm." Do you think he really cares about Jericho or about his share in the farm? The Lady Farmer complains that she can't defend her farm on her own, and Gray has said her farm is too far out for the rangers to police. "Then I'll defend you," Ol' Dead Eyes decides. The Lady Farmer scoffs, but Frodale grabs at her, demanding, "Are you abandoning it?" Lady Farmer sighs that the bank owns half of it anyway. Dude, there IS no bank any more! There is no money! WHY don't you people listen to me?! Lady Farmer chokes out that Frodale should just do whatever he wants. Ignoring the fact that the woman, who is losing her entire livelihood, is basically breaking down in front of him, Frodale wants things crystal clear: "If I defend it, then it's all mine." "If you can defend it," Lady Farmer bites back, and she leaves the purple-mouthed vulture with his vulturette. My bet? When the town goes cannibalistic, Frodale will take the first bite. After which, he will be selling Jerichoians in brown paper packages and there will be a sign out in front of the store saying, "New Arrivals: Mrs. Carmichael, Old Man Jenkins, and the part of Bill the coyotes didn't chew on. SPECIAL on rendered butt fat for candle-making." Emily won't have enough for even a tea light. Frodale steps over to his gang. Hold on, he has a gang? Like, what -- he's King Of The Dipshits or something? Sigh. Anyway, the hobbit orders his three men to round up all the refugees they can find.
At the Med Center, Mom dresses Eric. So much for his newly acquired toughness. Mary arrives and walks cautiously over, until Eric sees her and states, "Mary." With that sort of warmth directed at her, Mary beams. They embrace, Mary squeals, Eric says "Ow," and Mom's face works its way from disappointment over losing her baby to another woman to a grudging smile.
