Jake painstakingly works out a way to prevent the vaccine from being destroyed and to inoculate his people. John Goetz's men engage in a shooting on Stanley's farm where his sister is killed. Major Beck grudgingly decides to take notice of a deep throat and thereby enable the saving of both Jake and the truth about the nuclear war mongering conspiracy, for which a secret prewar J&R report indicates government guilt.

Good episode
14 March 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

A good episode, but not the greatest. I wish there was a little less drag time with the show. The Jenn and Rallings people were at it again. I feel this is going to be one of those right-wing conspires plots. I find that a little too politically correct. Easy plot device to blame people in suits. I could be wrong and the show has me in for a loop. I hate predictable TV. The end of the show hit me for a loop. Wow unpredictable. Like Supernatural the show changes cast quick enough which keeps the story fresh. I wonder what Beck will do with the new information? 6 out of 10. My wife thinks the Ravenwood bad guy plays a good antagonist.
