He asks what Ben was working on. She says Ben was an algebra teacher (like Grace! CLUES). He asks why an algebra teacher would be working with the department of defense, why he had full security clearance, and why he called Miles the night of the blackout and told him the power was going out five seconds before it did. He insists that Ben knew why the blackout happened and how to end it. In that case, you'd think Monroe would've told Neville he wanted Ben alive, and under no circumstances were they to kill him. Monroe starts pacing and talking about how nice he's been to Rachel, not putting her in a dungeon or killing her, because he respects her. Strangely, she does not fall to her knees, weeping with gratitude at his boundless generosity (although she seems to have three hots and a cot, which I would guess makes a pretty good life in this uncertain, kind of lawless world). Monroe calls in Johnny Crowder, who lays out his torture tools. Rachel regards him coolly, looking bored. He addresses her as "Mrs. Matheson," and apologizes in advance for, you know, torturing her face off.
Maggie bandages Aaron's wounded leg. Charlie looks around the area where they're camped. Someone seems to be watching them. Away from the others, Nora tells Miles he should go easier on Charlie. He says he'll make it much easier by leaving. Nora says he's just taking the coward's way out of his responsibility toward Charlie, and he accuses her of making this about their relationship. They argue some more about what Miles owes Charlie, and he says, "It's not my fault her dad's dead. Not my fault what happened to her mom." So it's possible Miles knows that Rachel is alive? Miles says family or not, he's bailing, and then of course turns around to see Charlie behind him. She just makes a weepy face like she does ALL THE TIME.
Flashback. Rachel hugs small-child Danny and Charlie asks why she has to leave. Ben says she's going to get supplies. Rachel says she'll be back in a few months, and Charlie begs her not to leave. Rachel tells her to help her dad and look out for her brother, and then she leaves, as Charlie screams behind her.
