Police Department. Beck tells Gray, Jake, and Eric that they've restored power to 70% of town, and he anticipates full capacity by the end of the month: "Jericho's on the fast-track to recovery." Gray's happy because it doesn't take much to please him, especially when he doesn't have to exert himself in any way. "He hasn't given us the bad news yet," Jake snaps, staring down Beck. Beck smiles tightly at Jake and agrees. The bad news is that Beck has determined that New Bern is likely at fault for all the hostilities between the towns. "But?" Jake prompts. Beck starts to say, "In the spirit of reconciliation--" "You gotta be kidding me -- reconciliation?" Jake interrupts loudly. Beck talks over him to say that it's in everyone's best interest to extend a blanket of amnesty over a wide range of actions committed during the "lawless period" after the attacks. Eric shouts that Constantino can't just walk away from this. Seriously -- I want more Lassie! "To be fair, he's been removed from office," says Beck. SNORT! Yes, give him a time-out; that'll work as well as it did in fourth grade. Jake keeps yelling, but Gray yells louder that he wants to hear Beck's explanation. "This guy has been helping to protect us from a world that, frankly, has been kicking our ass for the last six months!" Gray reminds him. Jake ignores the wussy mayor and directs his grievances at Beck: "Constantino is responsible for the deaths of over sixty men and women in this town, including MY FATHER!" Gray shuts up. Jake announces, "There isn't going to be any reconciliation until he's dead!" Beck gazes at Jake briefly before telling them all to pay close attention to what he's about to say. In the background, Eric impotently makes angry faces and shifts his weight from side to side. You tell 'em, Eric -- twitch that nose! Beck says that there will be no vigilantism in his jurisdiction. There will be no revenge killings. Period. Jake just smiles meanly at him.
