On his way through the mess, Kendal finds Shepard reading a notice that Chaplin has posted on the board inviting anyone who wants to leave to do so, although it says everyone has to keep doing their job until they can get safely back anyway. So it's not exactly a choice. Still, there are already names up on the board, a lot more in the go column than the three in the stay column. Kendal goes right to the captain to insist he keep him in the loop from now on. And he's a little crabby about it, too.
At the bar, Tani asks King if he's got any long-term plans for the corpse of his SEAL friend that he parked in her fridge, but before he can answer, the other two SEALs still in good enough shape to walk come to summon him to the hospital, where their wounded comrade Hopper is coming around. They find Hopper in pain, all the morphine gone from the supply cabinet, and Shepard as pretty much the only person watching over the patient. King tells her to stay away, but she says that she needs to know what's really going on so she can hold onto her crew. "You guys bug out of Pakistan with a wounded man and a couple hours later the U.S. is nuking the joint?" King still isn't sharing.
Kendal finds Cortez keeping herself occupied in the torpedo room and asks her discreetly to convince the other enlisted women in the crew to sign up to stay, which he hopes will help shame some of the men into staying as well.
Walking through town, Shepard reports the minimal results of her talk with King, and he tells her to stay on him. Kendal's got the bad news, which is that they're in danger of losing three quarters of the crew. Suddenly Shepard yells, "Gun!" and dives to the ground, throwing herself over Chaplin while shots ring out from the bush. Not sure how she saw the gun without seeing who was shooting. Kendal dashes off in pursuit after a man in Navy fatigues, and eventually catches Wallace, one of the would-be brawlers from the mess. Not cool, Wallace.
Later Kendal and Shepard are interrogating Wallace, who claims to have been operating on orders from a higher authority. "You guys are all dead. All of you." I seem to remember Stern saying something like that in the pilot. And look what happened to him.
Cortez puts her name up on the stay list, which is now longer but still much shorter than the go list. Reynolds from the pilot adds her name as well. As does Brannan, vowing to Cortez not to leave anyone behind. Again.
Shepard, meanwhile, is working on the COB, who says Chaplin already knows he's lost. "You put your name on that go list, this thing is over," Shepard says. Don't do it." Prosser isn't about to give up his "front row seats to the end of the world," and vows to personally paddle Shepard, Kendal, and Chaplin to their treason trial. That should be fun after the end of the world. Also, I wonder how Prosser thinks that treason trial is going to play out when the prosecution has a big list of names who literally signed their names to it and his is among them.
