Silas meets with his advisors. A runner comes in with a message from Gath; they are waiting and have offered a ridiculous counter-negotiation on the treaty. Silas realizes that they never intended to sign the treaty in the first place, and this whole thing was a farce. Another advisor comes in and tells Silas that the Treasury is bankrupt. Silas immediately knows that his brother-in-law was responsible. He storms over to the CrossGen offices and starts yelling at William for ruining the thought of peace and continuing their grudge. Silas grabs a letter opener and holds it to William's throat. William says that Silas won't last without him and Silas says William should just watch. Are we sure these two aren't in love? Silas storms out and tells Thomasina to get a car because they're going to Gehenna, to hell. Another Biblical allusion. Also, I kind of enjoy that the king just gets away with jacking people up and threatening them multiple times per week. I think we all have that impulse from time to time, and Silas gets to actually do it.
Jack finds out that his credit card got declined for the shopping spree. He doesn't seem all that upset, but notes that the Treasury must be bankrupt. Oh, that's right. He's not surprised, since he's in cahoots with William. Not sure what the purpose of Jack's scenes were this week, though.
Over at Veteran's Affairs, Mrs. Shepherd continues to wait in line and watches on television as the news reports the failed treaty. David shows up and gives her a hug and she goes off on a loud rant about how horribly the government treats its people and how there's no meaning in her son's death. The other people in line just kind of stare at her and nobody shouts "Huzzah" or anything. She just wants David to come home, so he walks out with her. Don't they have mail in Gilboa? Couldn't they just mail her the check?
King Silas and his entourage pull up to a warehouse-looking place that is guarded by military. They let Silas through, and he walks through a series of hallways where he finds an old man (Brian Cox!) sitting at a desk. Silas calls him Abaddon, and it seems that Abaddon is going crazy from being isolated for a long time. Through the crazy, we find out that Abaddon was formerly the king of a nation that Silas annexed. Silas told everyone that Abaddon was dead, and the people rejoiced. Now Silas wants to know where the gold from Abaddon's kingdom has been hidden for the last 30 years. Abaddon doesn't get why Silas thinks he would give it up now, after 30 years, so Silas shows him half of a photograph. We don't see it, but it must be a female relative that Abaddon had been told was dead. And Silas says there are others in the part of the picture Abaddon wasn't given. Whoever it is, it's enough to convince Abaddon to give up the gold.
