In Nobelsville Indiana, Neville is fighting bare knuckled against his men. After winning his bout, he tells Danny to step forward because he knows how Danny feels about him. Danny refuses to fight but after Neville punches him twice and says that he has to toughen up, Danny begins to fight. He beats Danny severely and than has a flashback to his pre blackout days as an insurance instructor. He is sitting with his boss discussing a claim and is fired for approving a claim that a family was not covered for.
In present day, Charlie, Aaron, Nora and Miles are gathered around Maggie’s grave mourning. Miles announces that it is time to go and Nora suggests allowing Charlie and Aaron more time. Miles feels that because he has given them thirty minutes that they have spared all of the time that they can. Charlie asks for more time and Miles points to the grave and says, “that’s just a body in the ground Charlie, but Danny, he’s still alive and he’s close. If you want him back, you can’t do this. You can’t have this luxury and hanging around here is not going to help.” They pack up leave and walk until they hear a train whistle.
Miles says that if Monroe has a train that they are in trouble. Neville tells the men to work faster because it is due to leave tomorrow. Monroe informs Rachel that her son will be there tomorrow and she begs them on whatever relationship they used to have to let Danny go. Rachel promises to tell him everything and he responds, “I know you will, but you know how I know? ‘Cause I am going to have your son right here with me.” Rachel calls him a son of a bitch and Monroe reminds her that he gave her a lot of opportunities to cooperate.
Charlie walks into the town to get an idea of what is going on. Nora tells Miles that Monroe with a working train means big problems. Charlie reports back that the train leaves tomorrow for Philadelphia and Miles is certain that Danny is being put on the train. Miles says that if they don’t find Danny by tomorrow, they will have lost him and he suggests that they do a search without weapons to keep a low profile. He instructs Charlie and Nora to walk away and inform him if they get a scent of Danny because they only have one shot at this.
Danny is in a cell and Neville is telling him how hard he had to work and that he never saw what he made. Danny tells him to shut up because he is sick of Neville’s speeches and mind games. Neville tells him to be careful and Danny asks him if it makes him feel tough to beat up an18 year old kid and what it says about him?
We are given another flashback to the night of the blackout. Neville’s neighbours are holding a party and he asks Rob if he can keep his music down at night because it keeps his kid up. Rob doesn’t answer him and Neville enters his house. His son walks up to him and gives him a huge hug. His wife is setting the table and Neville asks if he has time before dinner. Neville starts working out on the punching bag to get rid of his frustrations and his son Jason comes down the stairs. He asks Jason if he wants to take a swing and informs him to only hit the bag and never people, as the lights go out.
In present day, the train is being loaded up as Nora enters a printing press. She asks for a biography of Joe Biden and is then escorted into a backroom. The man holds a knife to her and says that he just needs to be sure and so she shows him her tattoo. When Nora asks for his mark, Hutch shows her an American flag. Apparently, Hutch represents the entirety of Nobleville’s underground. Hutch says that the militia wiped out their whole unit including his wife and that he is alone now. Nora corrects him and says that it’s you and me and we’re going to blow up that train.
