The FBI continue to search the cult's bunker and training camp and find a connection with the right-wing militia group Freedom 13 and its leader Daniel Monroe. In fact, they believe that at least four members of Freedom 13 were part of Joe Carroll's cult. At the house, Claire and Joey make a feeble attempt to leave the grounds but are stopped before they get too far. Joe is concerned with the FBI having found the bunker and what they might learn. He no longer trusts Roderick and decides he will eliminate Monroe himself and sets off with Jacob and Vince McKinley. The FBI find Monroe and he lets slip that Joe and his followers have a house. That's about all they get out of him before Joe and the others arrive as well. With Joe away from the compound, Claire meets Emma for the first time since her arrival. In flashbacks, we learn that Ryan's father was shot and killed in convenience store. We also learn what he did about it. Written by garykmcd

**** for this Episode
9 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Did Ms. Matthews actually think that she would be able to leave the compound with her son? Anyone would know that the gate would be locked. With Joe Carroll at the helm, no one is going anywhere without his permission. Period.

This was a very good psychological episode. Joe and Ryan meet, and Joe forces the latter to come to grips with his father's murder 30 years ago. It actually gets Ryan to go back in time and review how his dad met such a violent death, after retiring from the police force.

Emma really has it out with Claire. Joe seems to be disgusted with Claire as well, as he seems to be going back into Emma's arms.

Jacob looks like he will now be killing at will. Look at the distinguished family he came from.
