A list with all the names of The 4400 and their current location has leaked out. The department of Homeland Security tries its best to stop the list from getting dispersed, but the damage is already done. A bomb is placed in the house of Richard and Lily and that's not the only one. All returnees are in danger and agents Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris must find out who is behind the attacks. Self-proclaimed 4400's spokesman Jordan Collier has his own solution. He invites all of The 4400 to move to his housing complex, protected and closed off from the rest of the world. Meanwhile Baldwin's son seems to have quite a lot of trouble adjusting after he awakened from his coma. Dennis Ryland, Homeland Security director, has his own problem. Agent Warren Lytell comes over from Washington and he's got permission to practically take over the investigation of The 4400. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Plot Summary | Plot Synopsis


Did You Know?


Diana Skouris: Mister Tyler, I know you're trying to protect your family, but you have to realize that by staying here, you could be putting yourself in serious danger.
Richard Tyler: Maybe. But you know, I was born in 1922 - in Missouri. And my skin was as black then as it is now. So I've had to worry about fire bombings and lynchings and beatings my entire life. If there's anything I've learned, it's this. Eventually a man's gotta take a stand. I'm making mine right here.
