Jake hides behind a tree and gets off a few shots before he runs to the top of a hill and hides behind a fairly small rock.
Hawkins's House. Hawkins explains, "It's the uranium. It has a specific signature that places the origin of the device where it was made." Darcy realizes that there were dozens of these kinds of bombs used in the attack. Hawkins makes a face. "And now you have the last one," Darcy realizes. Hawkins agrees. "Robert, I don't think these people are looking at this as a weapon -- it's more than that. It's..." "Evidence," Hawkins supplies for her. Exactly. Evidence against whoever engineered the attack. However, we still can't conclusively say it was Valente who engineered the whole thing, because it could be argued that Valente knows what he knows because he was part of the undercover plan to thwart the attack. Darcy looks up at Hawkins and says, "It's the smoking gun of the greatest crime in the history of the world." Well, that's taking it a bit far -- that Trojan Horse thing was a pretty big deal. Darcy finally realizes that the bomb could expose the people who were involved in the attacks, and that's why they need it back. "Yeah," Hawkins breathes, and another digit on the WarGames tracker is locked in.
Jake fires from his rock and a hard place and finally takes out New Bern's gunner. More and more firing, which I like because I don't have to recap it. For an apocalyptic show, Jericho has certainly had more than its fair share of talk, talk, talking. Jake rolls over and sees the tank cresting the hill and lumbering its way down. New Bern continues to fire, and we can see Dad walking alongside the tank, firing back. Not sure why he's so exposed like that when he could be inside the tank, but I guess he needed to finish his debate with the Grim Reaper. Finally, New Bern collectively reacts to the tank and skedaddles. Yeah, you BETTER run! As bullets ricochet off the tank, the tank's barrel slooooooowly rotates and clanks into place. The New Bernies are scattering like the twelve tribes of Israel. The tank then decides to fire its SOLE MORTAR on an abandoned truck, killing no one but exploding valuable ammo and fuel. Why didn't they just use the tank for cover and then go and snag the truck for themselves? Also, why didn't they use the tank merely to force a retreat -- Jericho could have kept picking off the men as they ran pell-mell for cover from the tank -- and then save the mortar for a time when it could have taken out far more troops and supplies? Maybe Jericho doesn't deserve to win this war. Maybe they need New Bern to save them from themselves. A milk crate lands in the foreground of the exploding truck. The New Bernies run away. RUN AWAY! And as they run, the stupid-ass Jerichoians STILL don't use the opportunity to fire on them. Hey freakshows? This isn't some gentleman's war you're fighting here -- the rules are, there are no rules! However, Jericho is totally pumped by this defeat, and they all start cheering and celebrating. I'm sort of surprised that they're actually intelligent enough to resist firing a few celebratory rounds in the air.
