His tie now completely gone, Gray walks around the trashed town square in complete bewilderment and sadness. Wouldn't the army have cleaned up by now? Aren't they anal about stuff like that? Gray walks up to City Hall. A soldier asks him for I.D. "Excuse me?" Gray asks. "Who are you, sir?" the soldier asks. "I'm Gray Anderson," Gray says, looking around, "I'm the mayor of this town." Up in his office -- also trashed -- Gray find the framed Gadsden flag. The glass has been smashed. Along with the hearts of the fans! Gray looks up with resolve, tears in his eyes.
Texas Embassy. Ambassador Dr. Phil talks about getting them out without Cheyenne being the wiser. Jake helps Hawkins up, and they follow Ambassador Dr. Phil. "The bomb's ready in a car with diplomatic plates -- should get you through the airport. The plane's in hangar twenty-two -- " Hawkins suddenly collapses to the floor. Ambassador Dr. Phil helps Jake steady him and notes, "I always had a bad feeling about President Tomarchio, I'm glad someone's finally going to show the world what he's really about." Hawkins pants and sweats out, "Well, that's the plan."
Airport. Lots of planes mill around. Aw, yeah! It's all going to come down to Jake's fancy flying, isn't it? I hope he does a 4G inverted dive and flips the bird! Jake fiddles with some switches in a jet and jumps out to get Hawkins. He opens the door of the car and tells Hawkins it's time to get out of there. Hawkins protests that it won't take Them long to find Jake in that plane, so he needs to be the one to create a diversion. Jake says, "You don't stand a chance if you stay here on your own!" "And it doesn't matter because the mission is everything -- I told you!" Hawkins pants, nearly passing out. "No, it isn't!" Jake says, yanking Hawkins by the arm and dragging him out of the car. Hawkins gives a yelp but can't really resist. "Aw, dammit, Jake! I am not debating this!" Hawkins complains. "Yeah, I'm not debating this, either," Jake retorts, "I'm ignoring you." They're like an old married couple bickering about going out to dinner. Jake gets them in the plane just as Humvees storm up, all pissed off. Jake takes off before the soldiers can take a shot at them.
Jericho. Stanley and the boys are just covering Bonnie's casket when Beck drives up the hill and gets out. He tells his men to wait there and walks right up to Stanley. He respectfully takes off his helmet and crosses himself before saying, "I'm sorry for your loss." Confused and guarded, Stanley thanks him. "You're all free to go," Beck adds and walks back down the hill. Eric calls him back to ask what the deal is. Beck explains that twenty minutes ago, he informed his company commanders that he'd no longer be taking orders from the Cheyenne leadership. He believes the government is corrupt at its core, "Its actions are criminal, and I no longer recognize their right to lead." He IS a good man! Eric asks what happens next. Beck says he'll probably be charged and sent to Cheyenne to face a court-martial for treason. Yikes. "But until then, I'm still in charge, so you take your time," Beck finishes, "And then go home." Relieved, Mimi folds herself into Stanley.
