The militia wagon train stops at a quarry so the horses can drink. While writing a letter and sending it off with a messenger, Giancarlo explains dispassionately to Danny that he needed either him or his father, but that General Monroe will still be rather peevish not to get the man he wanted. "Might even have my head," he said with wry humor. "Let's hope," Danny snarks. Giancarlo backhands Danny and reminds him that he drew first, more or less causing his father's death. He walks away and Danny continues fiddling with the bar he's handcuffed to.
Campfire. Aaron whines about the chafing. Surely the world's supply of Vaseline would have lasted more than fifteen years? He asks Charlie what they know about her uncle. She says all her father ever told her is that he's good at killing. Which seems like a pretty decent skill to have, no? The next morning, she comes across a fellow named Nate, who looks like a literate version of Taylor Lautner, or like he just escaped from the cover of a futuristic dystopian YA novel. Which I guess is kind of what this show is. He's burly and vaguely ethnic and has a big trust-me smile. They banter cutely and she fills up her water bottles.
Back at camp, Aaron still has the thing Ben gave him, the One Flash Drive to Rule Them All. I guess this does make a small case for not keeping everything in the cloud. On their ramble, Maggie, Charlie, and Aaron find O'Hare Airport, which is of course overgrown and abandoned. They climb into a plane and decide to make camp there after Aaron explains that planes usually have medical kits. When they ask how he knows this, he explains that in the before world, he worked at Google and owned a plane. "Eighty million dollars in the bank and I would trade it all right now for a roll of Charmin," he says. Note to self: stockpile household paper goods in case of apocalypse. Good thing I live near a Costco.
Danny's prison wagon. Danny finally succeeds in unscrewing the bar he's handcuffed to, but the noise of the loose screw clattering to the bottom of the wagon draws the attention of one of his captors. Danny belts the man across the face with it and runs off into the woods.
