At the bridge, it looks like the townsfolk are excited about having something to do. Guys are shoving a station wagon into place to block the road, and have one truck turned on its side. As Hawkins orders the troops around, Jake says, "This isn't your first run-in with these guys, either, is it?" Because Hawkins is suspect for doing exactly what they talked about. I don't know. Hawkins, naturally, responds with a question of his own: "Would you even know when you were in over your head?" Heh. Jake doesn't answer. Which is probably wise, because if he'd said, "No," Hawkins might have dumped him into the river. Not that he'd be over his head in there, either.
Casa Green. April discovers Eric gathering some supplies. She announces that she has to tell him something, and Eric sighs wearily and puts his bags down for a second. April explains that she drew up the divorce papers because she couldn't see a future for the two of them. Taking his hand, she adds, "But now I can." Eric looks into the distance and replies, "I can't." Ha! He says that he doesn't want to hurt her, and then of course there's the "but": "I'm in love with someone else." April attempts to wrinkle her brow up in astonishment, and given the results, I suspect she may be another victim of Botox. Or that could be a side effect of the brainslugs. "Who?" she finally asks. He says that it's Mary Bailey, and then tries to stammer out an apology. April interrupts to call him a son of a bitch, and then runs upstairs. Oh, April. You really shouldn't talk about Mom like that.
Bridge. The guys who were preparing to shove another car from one end of the bridge start shouting and racing back to the barricade. If they could tow these cars all the way to the bridge, why didn't they bring them a hundred yards further? Or did they push them the whole way? A better question is, why do I bother trying to understand this show? Behind them, Ravenwood's Humvees of Doom are approaching. Everyone takes cover behind the cars, and Hawkins shouts orders as the Humvees stop. Jake tries to take charge, calling, "Nobody fires until I say so!" Hawkins reminds everyone, "The most important thing to do before squeezing the trigger is to breathe." I don't doubt that these people need reminders to breathe, but I'm pretty sure he really means "exhale." Because I understand there's a tendency to hold one's breath before firing. Of course, these guys are presumably used to shooting guns because they're farmers and possibly hunters as well. D.B. Sweeney and three musclebound soldiers get out of the Humvees and stare at the barricade inquisitively. "Somebody here wanna talk to me?" D.B. Sweeney asks. Nobody does. D.B. Sweeney says that the road needs to be cleared: "We're under government orders to collect supplies." Good Cop reminds the guy he's standing next to, "Breathe." Instead, the guy pulls the trigger. And then he looks around rapidly like he's thinking, "Uh oh! Wait, maybe nobody noticed." Team Ravenwood did notice, though, and immediately returns fire. The townsfolk duck as the cars are filled with lead. After a moment, D.B. Sweeney tells his troops to hold their fire. He repeats that they're under orders to collect supplies, and this time he adds, "Your cooperation is mandatory!" Jake reacts to that by saying "Damn!" and making a frustrated face. Johanna says it looks like he's thinking, "Curses, not 'mandatory'! If it were just 'requested,' we'd have a fighting chance." D.B. Sweeney says that he's going to go away for four hours, and that when he returns, the bridge had better be clear. Then he and his men get back into their Humvees and drive away. The monsters! As they leave, a shaken Gray says that they can't possibly hold the bridge. Jake says, "We're gonna have to take it out." Hawkins agrees, but Gray's a little slow on the uptake, so Jake explains, "There can't be a bridge." Are they going to unwish it?
