Morse code deciphered:
After Stanley murders Goetz, Beck sends out his troops to find Stanley and the other Rangers. Jake, the Rangers, and Stanley are hiding out. All of them are considered fugitives. Stanley feels guilty about what he did and wants to turn himself in, but Jake proposes a different idea. He goes into town and surrenders himself in exchange for the freedom of Stanley and the Rangers. Beck does not agree to the terms, and he arrests Jake. Beck also captured Russel, who gave away the identity of Goetz's killer. Jake will not tell Beck where Stanley is hiding, so Beck locks him up. Beck declares Jericho an open insurrection, and cuts off supplies to the town until the criminals are found. Heather is surprised at Beck's behavior and tells him so.
Meanwhile Hawkins gets a call from Chavez: Texas is ready to see the bomb. As Hawkins packs up to go to Texas, the mysterious phone-caller who made contact with Hawkins in previous episodes calls yet again. His name is Smith. Smith asks Hawkins not to take the bomb to Texas but work with him. Hawkins doesn't trust Smith, and lies saying they could work together. n reality, Hawkins sets off for Texas.
While locked up Jake begins to doubt how long he could keep going on like this. He has a vision--or a hallucination--of his Grandfather. His Grandfather encourages him to keep up the good work and try to recruit Beck to the right side. Jake wonders about Stanley. "I hurt everyone I ever loved, but I second chance," says Jake. "Stanley--he never hurt a soul." "But he lost everything," said the Grandfather. Life wasn't always fair, he goes on, but giving up won't bring back the old Stanley.
Beck makes Gail see Jake and tell him to talk. But while Gail is in the cell she whispers encouragement to Jake and tells him that the Rangers are going to break him out.
As Hawkins is driving, Smith calls him up and asks why he was going to Texas. Hawkins is stunned that Smith knows his destination and position, but he does not listen. Smith then calls Beck and reports Hawkins as a terrorist. In a matter of minutes Hawkins is surrounded by helicopters that fire at him. He drives into the woods and runs away, leaving the bomb in the back of his car. The army of Cheyenne retrieves the bomb.
In the meantime, Eric and the Rangers rescue Jake. Gail had told them that Jake was being held at a farm on the outskirts of Jericho. The rescue mission is done soon enough, with no casualties. Stanley did not go on the mission, but stayed alone. Mimi leaves the hospital where she has been recovering from her gunshot wound. She tries to comfort Stanley, who confesses his guilt as a result of killing Goetz. He tells Mimi that he lost his senses, that he felt no emotion whatsoever, he just pulled the trigger. (Clinically, this is called temporary insanity and the killer afterwards says he had no control over what he was doing.)
Hawkins walks but to Jericho, talking to Smith on the way. During the heated conversation Hawkins proves that his suspicions about Smith are true. Smith came up with the plan to bomb the cities and he put it into action. Hawkins asks why he did it, and Smith explains his hatred of Jennings and Rall. He used the bombs to destroy the company. "Well you failed," Hawkins says, "because they are more powerful than ever." "They're also more vulnerable," replies Smith. Smith plans to destroy Cheyenne, where Jennings and Rall is stationed. He plans to destroy it using Hawkins' bomb, which he will steal from the army.
Hawkins hurries to Jake and asks for his help. They must go to Cheyenne and take the bomb themselves.
Stanley: "Everything just washed out of me. I wasn't scared, I wasn't angry. ....I just pulled the trigger."
Bill: "Do you remember anything else?"
Gail: "It smelled terrible."
Bill and Jimmy: "Hog Farm!"
Hawkins: "You're not just some innocent whistle-blower."
Smith: "I like to think that I am. Only last time I blew the whistle, I took out 23 American cities."
