Neville promises to keep Jason in line, but Monroe says the other fellow in the room, John, had a great idea to send Jason on a mission to California. Which freaks Neville out, because "those heathens have been known to send our boys home in a box." That...seems like more trouble than it's worth. Monroe says he's being generous in not just executing Jason, out of respect for Neville, so he gets to choose Australia, I mean California, or the firing squad. (Or whatever horrible method of execution Monroe favors. Drawing and quartering, maybe.)
Nora and the others are wiring sticks of dynamite to the windows of the building they were hiding in. She lights the fuses and things go boom. Strausser runs toward the explosion, and another goes off. Miles and Charlie cut Mia down, and the four run for it. Except for Miles, who spots Strausser looking at them. They draw their swords, but then Miles flees.
Jesus, these people do more solemn plodding through the woods than there is in the seventh Harry Potter movie. Miles tells Mia he's happy to see her, although Mia's decidedly not, after whatever Miles did to Nora. Mia asks what the plan is, and they catch her up on all the Danny shenanigans (Dananigans?). She thinks they're crazy for heading into Philadelphia, but since she can't talk Nora out of it, she says Morgantown isn't the way to go. Mia knows a coyote who can ferry them across the river about ten miles away. Miles suddenly tells them all to hide, as Strausser's scouting party comes close.
Galveston, four months after the blackout. Nora and Mia are walking along the beach and approach a house with the Texas flag flying. They go inside and call for their father. The house looks like it's been ransacked, and their father is nowhere to be found. Mia asks where their mother is (because Nora said she'd be at their father's house) and Nora tells her she's dead, but their father is coming back. They'll wait for him.
The group climbs some sort of structure (one of those huge round fuel holding tanks?) so they can get a better look at the landscape. Charlie asks Miles if he thinks they've lost Strausser. He does not. Mia apologizes to Nora for going AWOL, and says she went to Texas and found their father. Mia, it turns out, is a bounty hunter. Nora's stammering uncertainly and Mia explains that when they went to Galveston, their father went to San Antonio to look for them. After finding their dead mother, he assumed his daughters were dead too. Mia asks Nora to come with her to Texas, where no one is hunting them, but Nora says she promised Miles. Mia doesn't think Nora owes Miles anything, and Nora says she promised Charlie. She'll go with Mia after they rescue Danny. Mia says they won't get out of Philly alive, and Nora protests that Danny is Charlie's family, but Mia points out rather sensibly that she's Nora's family. And she isn't interested in suicide missions.
