Camp Liberty. Heather finds her way to some fatigues and is directed to the man in charge. Directing her pleas at a guy -- a colonel -- who looks like Anthony Bourdain and Hugh Laurie's love child, Heather explains how the people of New Bern tried to kill her and are planning to attack Jericho. Man in Charge -- I'm gonna call him Charles -- says that his orders are to secure the roads in their immediate area. Before Heather can continue her protest, Col. Charles stops her with, "I don't get to make these decisions, I'm just a government employee." Heather takes a deep breath and asks, "Which government?" Col. Charles shares a laugh with the guy who was dabbing at a wound on his arm and responds, "United States." You know, the laugh was pretty rude. Do these people not get the fact that people all over the country are without power and therefore have no access to what the hell happened to the United States, lo those many months ago? Because if not, I don't think I want them in charge of my country. Heather doesn't say anything. Col. Charles asks if she's okay. "We heard there were six different people claiming the presidency." Col. Charles agrees and adds, "There were -- in fact, there's still a couple of holdouts: Texas, a bloc in the East. The new federal government's been restored in Cheyenne, Wyoming." Heather pleads some more, but Col. Charles can't help her and kindly asks another dude to escort her back to the medical tent.
