Season 1Edit


Danner was brought to the 2nd Mass by Porter as he had military experience and was needed to help with the planning on the attack on Boston. Weaver, Danner and other trusted fighters are discussing the plan to attack the tower. Tom tries to speak with Wevaer however Danner tells Tom this is no Q&A. Danner was later ordered by Weaver to lock Tom in the boiler room. Seeing as Lt. Danner could not be reasoned with, they devised a plan that consisted of Jimmy walking down to the cell to give Tom food, only to drop it and cause a distraction, thus allowing Tom to escape. After a brief altercation between Lt. Danners and Tom ultimately wins, ties Lt. Danner up, and puts tape on his mouth. Lt. Danner was discovered shortly after this by Weaver. Lt. Danner later volunteers to go with Weaver to take the attack to the tower in Boston. He gets in the convoy and leaves the school.
