Still sitting next to Stanley, Mimi says, "When the September attacks happened and D.C. was destroyed along with everybody and everything I ever knew, I didn't think I would ever live through it. I couldn't breathe and everything went black. And then I found you." Stanley points out that the attacks happened to them; someone else pulled the trigger. "And Goetz killed Bonnie," Mimi reminds him, "Everybody understands what you did." Stanley leans forward, still not looking at Mimi and recounts, "His hands were tied, he wasn't going anywhere. He looked at me and I remember thinking to myself, 'This is just some guy.' I mean, all the build-up, the tracking down of Goetz, Goetz the killer. He was just some guy." Not really Stanley, he was some evil guy. Stanley goes on, "Everything just washed out of me. I wasn't scared. I wasn't angry." Mimi presses her hand over her mouth to keep from sobbing out loud. "I just pulled the trigger. And that's what I did." Mimi puts her hand up to Stanley's face and her chin on his shoulder. Stanley still won't look at her.
Beck sits in Jake's cell with a cup of water next to him. He looks up from a file and reads about Jake's father and grandfather, both Army Rangers. "Both your father and grandfather were great soldiers," Beck muses, "Mine too. I know how hard it can be to live up to someone else's legacy." Beck reads that both Greens became mayor and wonders if they would have supported the citizens of Jericho taking the law into their own hands. Jake is silent.
Meanwhile, the citizens of Jericho rush into the town square and hurl Molotov cocktails at J&R. Beck's soldiers impotently run at them with guns raised.
"Never would have let it get back that far," Jake mutters. Beck turns around, "Excuse me?" "They would have never handed over this town to a mercenary," Jake tells Beck. Beck slams the folder shut and crouches next to Jake, whispering, "They didn't have to do what I'm doing -- stopping Americans from killing Americans. Getting a country back on its feet." Jake chuckles mirthlessly. "Open your eyes," he sneers, "It's not a country, it's a company and you're just middle management." BURN! "The people of Jericho are going to take this town back," Jake goes on, "You're going to have a revolt on your hands."
