At the Richmond farm, the Jericho troops attempt to gather. Jimmy reports that they are two hundred strong, including Frodale's "crew." Gray makes like he's going to be useful, but Mayor Dad puts a stop to this, explaining that as their leader, Gray has to be protected at all costs. Plus, Dad adds, unwrapping a single mortar which came from who knows where, he needs Gray to help arm their tank.
Hawkins opens his armored Samsonite laptop and boots up the satellite link. Darcy paces and moans that her daughter is carrying a rifle and she's stuck in the house. Hawkins calmly tells her that Sam needs her and that Allison is safe; she was assigned to Town Hall and the fighting is miles away from there. Hawkins's screen unpixillates to show the New Bern trucks on the road. He radios Jake to tell him New Bern is closing in with about seventy to eighty men and asks if they have the tank yet. Jake explains they are still trying to load it with the mortar round. Yeah, keep trying, because I don't really get how the two are compatible. "I think you're going to need it," Hawkins breathes.
At the Richmond farm, Jake readies his team as they all position themselves behind a single car.
Suddenly, Hawkins realizes that his satellite link is being tracked. On the computer, there's a WarGames-esque descrambler that's attempting to lock in on his code digit by digit. "Do you know who it is?" Darcy asks, frantically. Hawkins casts a brief look up at the board and guesses that it's Valente from Homeland Security: "I don't know who he's working for now, but he told Sarah to get the bomb any way she could and to eliminate all witnesses." Darcy stares back at him, terrified, realizing this is the first time she's heard about this. "All the witnesses," Hawkins repeats, nodding. "Shut it down!" she commands him. Hawkins can't and explains they just have to disconnect the feed before they complete the trace. As he says this, one digit of the trace clicks into place. Now, if he disconnected and reconnected, would the trace have to start all over again?
