Outside City Hall, Jake rejoins Eric, who asks what Beck wanted. "Doesn't matter," states Jake. "Gather the Rangers. We meet tonight. Tomorrow, we're going to New Bern. We're going to kill Constantino." Dude, Jake's going to the dark side! Awesome.
Inside his office, Beck hands out flyers and says that they have new orders from HQ. They're on a manhunt. "The suspect is in possession of a high-yield nuclear device," Beck recounts, "the same sort that carried out the September attacks. Your orders are to shoot on sight." Darcy briefly knocks on Beck's door before coming in with some papers for him. "We're going to find this terrorist no matter what it takes," Beck concludes. He thanks Darcy and hands her a sheaf of flyers, asking, "Could you copy these and distribute them as well?" Darcy looks down and sees Sarah Mason's face staring back at her with "WANTED Terror Suspect" above her name and aliases. One of the soldiers notes Darcy's prolonged look at the flyer.
Green House. Hawkins pays Jake a visit because he's got "a little bit of a situation," and needs a safe house. Jake sits down at the dining-room table and ostentatiously places his gun next to some open maps. Jake considers Hawkins's request before offering up his grandfather's hunting cabin and then asking, "Why? What's going on?" Hawkins just presses his lips together and shakes his head briefly. Jake gives up and (sort of) changes the subject, telling Hawkins that the news is reporting that the September attacks were backed by North Korea and Iran. Hawkins already knows this. "You said it was domestic terrorism," Jake accuses. "Which is what it was," Hawkins says calmly. "Why would the government lie about that?" Jake demands. "Gee, I don't know, Jake," says Hawkins, almost sarcastically. "You don't know?" Jake interrupts. "No. I really don't know," Hawkins says carefully and end-of-story-ily. They stare at each other. Jake hands over the keys to the hunting cabin and then looks back down at his maps. "We're meeting at Bailey's after closing," Jake starts. Hawkins glances at the maps, and his eyes rest on New Bern. "If you're still around, I need you there," says Jake, sitting down heavily. "Then, I'll be there," Hawkins promises simply. God, I love Hawkins.
At the aforementioned Bailey's, Heather shreds a juicy burger while Mary watches and laughs. Beck walks in, and Heather's face gets still and hard. Beck approaches them and asks, "May we have a word, ma'am?" Mary looks at Heather, and Heather shrugs. Mary leaves. Beck sits down and gets right to the point: he wants to know what Heather knows about the New Bern man she saw in the police station. Heather slowly explains that he was one of Constantino's deputies. Beck is silent, waiting for more intel. Unwillingly, Heather goes on: when she found out what New Bern was planning to do to Jericho, Constantino had one of his deputies take Heather to the outskirts of town to execute her. "But he let you go," Beck prompts. Heather explains that she got lucky because her escort wasn't keen on following those kinds of orders. However, not all deputies were so squeamish, and the guy Jake tackled in Jericho was one of the worst. Beck digests this briefly and asks whether Heather thinks the New Bern scum should die for what he did. "Well, I think there's been enough dying around here lately," Heather says angelically. "Don't you?" Instead of answering, Beck says that because Heather has ties to both towns, and because Col. Hoffman said she showed a lot of guts with him, he wants her to his liaison with New Bern. In fact, Hoffman recommended Heather specifically. I was really hoping we'd be seeing more of Hoffman. He seemed sort of cool, almost in a war-weary way that might develop into him bucking military authority if he had to. Yes, I clearly read a lot into those few scenes. "I assumed you'd want to help," Beck says to Heather's stunned and silent response to his offer. "I just came from a town where guys with guns and uniforms made life very unpleasant," Heather starts. "And you can't tell the difference between me and Phil Constantino?" asks Beck. Heather thinks hard on that one. Weird line, because Heather "just came" from Cheyenne, not New Bern. Also, if they really are talking about New Bern, the uniforms there were Ravenswood, not Constantino. As far as we saw, Constantino didn't wear any sort of uniform. Aside from his Spock Beard of Evil, of course.
