The Patriots plan to use mustard gas on the residents of Willoughby.

Ed Truman meets with the President who is not happy with the incidents happening in Texas involving Miles and Monroe. Charlie finds Miles in a field and brings him back to camp where he is patched up by Gene Porter. Suddenly, flocks of birds swarm over the camp. Miles notices a thick cloud rolling towards them. He orders everyone to run. Patriot soldiers wearing gas masks pick off the soldiers. Miles, Charlie, Rachel, Aaron and Monroe hide in an abandoned tanker truck to escape the gas. Later, Rachel decides to leave Miles and Monroe to their ambitions. Monroe reveals to Miles that he intends to gather the Republic soldiers scattered across the Eastern Seaboard. Miles realizes that Monroe intends to take those states. Elsewhere, Neville thwarts an attempt on his life by trapping Shaw in bear trap. He interrogates Shaw about Julia’s fate only to see the awful truth in his eyes—Julia is dead. With nothing to lose, he swears revenge against the Patriots and kills Shaw. Somewhere else, Miles and Monroe kill several special Patriot soldiers and take their clothes and the chemical packs. Aaron heads to a house where he finds Pricilla and several dead soldiers. At the cabin, Gene returns with Marion and Miles shows her the chemical tanks the Patriots are using. He asks her to spy on Truman. Monroe is against the idea.

Monroe suffers a set back and loses Miles as an ally.

Monroe suffers a set back and loses Miles as an ally.

Its two steps back for Monroe when the Patriots use Mustard gas to eliminate his promising army, destroying his chances at restoring the Republic. However, this will not be enough to stop Bass Monroe. The man has strong ambitions and once he sets his mind on something, it is hard to derail him. Once he and Miles get ahold of the mustard gas, Monroe intends to use it against the Patriots. Miles knows Monroe and he destroys the gas with Rachel’s help. When confronted, Miles stands to Monroe and backs out of their arrangement. This comes from him hearing Monroe’s plan to return to Philadelphia, gather the Republic soldiers scattered about and take both Georgia and Washington D.C. Bass clearly has not given up on expanding his territory once he reestablishes it. Even though he says that things are going to change within the new Republic, Miles knows better. He knows Monroe cannot change no more than an alligator can go vegetarian. It was a matter of time before Miles wises up and drops Monroe like a bad habit. Again, this will not stop Monroe. He returns to the chemical plant with Connor where he finds an unlikely ally—Tom Neville. With his son and wife dead, Tom seeks vengeance against the Patriots and knows that the only man who can help him and who hates those “red, white and blue sons of bitches” as much as he does is Monroe. These two are one in the same pod. They both have high standards, strong ambitions and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. And they will step on anyone along the way. Monroe knows that Tom is ruthless and could be better suited to help him restore the Republic than Miles. Now will Sebastian Monroe accept Tom Neville as a partner after he has made clear to overthrow him in the past?

The nanotech's growing power continues to plague Aaron.

The nanotech’s growing power continues to plague Aaron.

The government of “Revolution” has turned Nazi terrorists. They have acquired the volatile chemical known as mustard gas which they used to eliminate the gang camping outside of Willoughby. Ed Truman ordered a large shipment of it sent to Willoughby for reason unknown. But one thing’s for sure, it definitely can’t be good. The nanotech is learning, just as they said. However, it is not for the better. After studying everyone at camp including the attack, the nanotech has decided to make everyone happy, figuring that people are miserable. Basically, this is going to be a sci-fi version of a Genjutsu from “Naruto”. The nanotech may be advanced machines but their behavior is simplistic—just lights and clockwork. And poor Aaron can do nothing about it. He is at the mercy of the very “beings” he created. He is forced to watch helplessly as the woman he loves is manipulated like a marionette. The nanotech has experienced several emotions so far—love, happiness and pleasure. I wonder what will happen when the nanotech learn to express their anger.
