In Charleston, John Pope laments that his business’ success means little without another community to trade with, before soldiers arrive to move his entire establishment on Marina Peralta’s orders. After President Benjamin Hathaway recuperates in Charleston after being brought by Cochise, he recognizes Marina Peralta, as an old colleague, before the talk turns to Marina’s growing unease with the Volm weapon secrecy. Later, Marina’s dictatorial behavior is noted by Weaver an thinks that she may be the mole in Charleston. Cochise shows the Volm weapon to President Hathaway, Marina and Weaver, explaining that the Espheni will soon launch a worldwide energy field that will decimate the planet, and leave only the aliens to survive.
After Hathaway is murdered, observing the scene, Anthony, Weaver and Marina all agree to keep the matter quiet, and step up their search for the real mole. Outside, John Pope points out to Weaver that Marina had the most to gain from President Hathaway’s death, a thought neither can bring themselves to ignore. (The Pickett Line)
One week later, Weaver informed her the plans with the Volm cannon were going ahead and would be departing the next morning. When she asked where the target was, Weaver told her they wouldn’t know until they left. She questioned him, thinking he wasn’t telling her. Weaver told her it was standard military procedure. She then asked how they knew the Volm wouldn’t turn on them. He said they didn’t and reminded her of the Grid and how they would all be dead in three months if nothing was done. After telling her he needed to get the soldiers ready for battle, she left. After the Volm complex bombing, she questioned the status of the mission, and was mad that Weaver, Tom, and Porter left her out of the meeting. Tom told her not to worry, that they had dismissed him before a change of plans to place. Tom told her he didn’t want his job back, she said it was a tough job to do. Tom looked for her after the bomb went off, she was under some debris and couldn’t see. Tom removed the debris and noticed a cut on her head, he put pressure on it and asked if was any better.
