Plot SynopsisEdit

Hal finally reveals his internal struggle to everyone, and it doesn't bode well for the Masons. Charleston's government sees a massive shift in leadership when a group breaks away on a search and rescue mission.


In this episode Tom wakes up in the hospital only to find out about Anne, and Alexis going missing, he meets with Paint face as he reveals they're being held by Karen. He storms out and prepares to go search for them, Hal agreeing with him. After being calmed down by Weaver he decides to give the Rebel Skitters 24 hours to get information on where they are being held by Karen. While talking with Marina, in which she insists in shutting down the Volm project and Tom arguably deciding against it, Hal drives up in a Humvee and knocks Marina to the ground before holding Tom at gunpoint to come with him. While leaving, Marina recovers and warns Maggie about what Hal did, she shoots the Humvee with the 50 cal. After the Humvee flips, Hal drags Tom into an upper floor of a building, and the 2nd Mass surround the building attempting to come up with a good strategy.

While in the building, Tom figures out that someone is controlling Hal. Maggie reveals to Weaver and Marina that Hal has been having nightmares about meeting Karen. Pope rages at Maggie for covering up for Hal, and Weaver decides to go inside the building to talk to Hal. Hal says he needs a Humvee to leave Charleston, but it only breaks out in a fire fight between Hal and the 2nd Mass, which manages to briefly knock Hal out. Weaver kicks Pope and the Berserkers off the line for engaging Hal, and the rest of the 2nd mass continue to talk Hal down and decide to get a Humvee. Pope at the Nest is placing bets on the outcome of Hal's confrontation and the results of what will happen to him if he survives. Weaver insists that no one will get hurt while Marina talks to Tector about making a split decision in killing Hal, to not sacrifice Tom. Ben, Maggie, and Matt go behind Weaver's back and find a different way into the room. Tom attempts to talk to the real Hal by pulling past memories and discussing his mothers love for Him, as well as him being a great soldier, which then causes Hal to panic. After Matt and Maggie enter the room and talk to Hal, he attempts suicide. Luckily Ben sneaks through a door behind him and quickly enters and helps everyone save Hal.

Meanwhile Hal tries to convince Maggie that the eye-worm left when he was shot, and that the Skitters device would only kill him. Maggie leaves after Hal becomes angry at her, for being unwilling to uncuff him from the medical bed. Lourdes prepares Hal's surgery and sends the hunter killer in, after a few painful moments Hal passes out and the bug is killed, but only for his heart to stop.
