The news shows live footage of Michelle heading into the warehouse, which catches Jack's attention in the news station. Cut to inside the warehouse, where one of the rebels lets Michelle in. She addresses Ethan, and he asks if her presence means that the king is giving in to their demands. She says she's there to apologize. Seriously? That was her big plan? In the hours it took her to get there, that's the best she could come up with? She sucks. Ethan says pretty much that. Michelle adds that if they will lay down their guns right now, she will tell the press that the king has granted them all amnesty. Ethan realizes that Silas doesn't even know Michelle is there, but Michelle thinks that if she speaks out publicly, her father will have no choice but to go along. Man, did Silas force his children to take media manipulation lessons? Because they're suddenly both experts. Why can't Michelle use these powers to get her stupid health care reform passed? As Ethan mulls over her proposition, one of his henchmen cocks a pistol and points it at Michelle's head.
Silas is finally done fishing, and heads back to his car, since he's just been informed that Michelle has been taken hostage. General Almost is there, listening to Silas bark orders. Silas wants all the media pulled from the scene, and General Almost has to tell him that UNN is refusing to leave, since it's now under new ownership. Silas spits at him to call Katrina Ghent and his convoy takes off. Back at the port, David watches as the military forces arrive.
The head of UNN pleads with Jack to follow the king's order to remove their cameras. Jack scoffs and says that he's pissed at his father for putting Michelle in harm's way, and his only payback is public humiliation. Or he could, you know, get off his ass and actually do something to help his sister. Just saying. Katrina Ghent swans in and orders the UNN guys to kill the live feed and stop broadcasting. Jack asks why they should listen to her, and she says that she just bought the network, and that Jack must have really pissed off his father.
Out on the street, Jack calls Uncle William and asks what's going on. William says that Silas would rather "appoint that whore than let [Jack] assert [himself]." Jack is just pissed off enough to agree to join his uncle's crusade to unseat the king. William returns to his clandestine insurrection meeting in some sort of warehouse or basement or something. It's not so clandestine that they don't have a waiter walking around serving them on fine silver. That is one fancy insurrection. One of the other meeting participants complains that it doesn't matter if Jack joins them -- they need Reverend Samuels. William promises that Samuels will be there.
