Maggie sews up a gash on Miles's back while he grumps that he didn't ask them to come back and save him. "We're family," Charlie says again, overly earnestly. Miles has had enough too, because he says, "Kid, if I'm coming with you, you're going to have to dial it back a notch." Aaron still has the MacGuffin, in case you were wondering. Charlie has a photo of her sainted parents. Miles has the whiskey.
Miles flashes back to the highway where he and the Cape were stranded when the power went out. "We should get back to base," the Cape says. They were Marines stationed at Parris Island, apparently. Miles shows his ID to the guards at the base and is let in, but the Cape doesn't have his card. Instead he pulls up his sleeve to reveal... his giant M tattoo. "Sergeant Sebastian Monroe," he says. AAAAAHHHHHH. Back at the Grand, Miles is all haunted by the monster he helped create, or something.
Valley Forge. Er, Monroe's military encampment. Giancarlo's courier arrives and hands Monroe the message that says Ben is dead. Monroe seems peeved. Sure. Last time he was in Chicago, he was a handsome playboy doctor with a sexy Australian accent, and now the world has no toilet paper.
The farmhouse. Shotgun Lady unlocks an(other?) attic room. She has the same little gadget that Aaron does, and when she pushes something, the power comes on. She has an all wires-and-circuits setup that's controlling a computer monitor. See? She remembers the electronic potential of root vegetables! A War Games-green C: prompt has never looked so sweet. She tells someone the militia came, but they didn't find "it." She asks for further instructions.
Next time: More flashbacks to Dead Mommy. Nate is still following Charlie, and Miles is leading her into evil. I like Miles, you guys.
