Miles storms off to where they have John in an interrogation room. Sure, hospitals have interrogation rooms. As Neville, Jim, and rebel Commander Ramsey watch through the glass, Miles muses that maybe John used Nora to infiltrate their outfit. John replies that he's fed up with killing for Monroe and he wants to help Miles help Rachel, since Monroe is headed her way with an army. Miles accepts this really quickly and instructs John to take them to the Tower.
Miles tries to convince Jim to sit this battle out, since he has a family to go home to. Jim flatly reminds Miles that his wife won't have him back since she got a load of his murderous capabilities. "So you better put on a dress, because you're all I have left," he snaps before going off to fuel up the Magical Continent-Spanning Transportation Machine the rebels have at their disposal that explains how they can hop from Atlanta to Kentucky to West Virginia to Philly and now to Denver in the blink of an eyelash.
Neville pops up and says Foster has ordered him to ride along with Miles on the suicide trip. Guess who else wants to go? Charlie. Next to a helicopter, she nervously asks Jason if he's ever flown before. He did, as a tiny kid. She gets on board. Nora also thinks she's coming along, but Miles objects before John rattles off the list of nasty-sounding psychedelics he shot her up with, so maaaaaaybe she shouldn't be getting on any flying modes of transportation that don't have doors, hmm? She probably still thinks she can fly. Nora pleads with Miles to let her help while Neville and Ramsey cram into a tiny seat that neither of them looks too happy to be sharing. Their reaction shot is the funniest part of this episode.
In Colorado Springs, Monroe has set up camp. Major Franklin mentions the tribes to the north and south, saying they won't be too thrilled to have the Monrovies camped out on their doorstep, but Monroe just tells him to give them smallpox blankets so they won't be any trouble. Sure, he's a genocidal maniac who has his closest friends executed and was perfectly willing to burn his childhood sweetheart alive, but it's Monroe's racism that's a deal breaker.
Monroe says "the Tower" seems like a misnomer as he and Randall look into the entrance cut into the side of a mountain. Randall says it goes half a mile down into the earth. Which makes it a mine shaft. Not a tower. Randall puts his palm on the plate that should admit him, but his access is denied. Monroe wants to shoot Randall on the spot, but Randall asks for time. A small pack of mysterious figures, their backs to us, watch Randall and Monroe on monitors from inside the tower.
