Dr. Mom tells them to check her rucksack – there is a bottle in there. Thugs 3 & 4 drink it, while Thug #2 drags Charlie away, presumably, to rape her.
Can someone call Benson and Stabler?
Charlie struggles with Thug #2 and is suddenly shot with an arrow.
That’ll leave a mark
Charlie turns to see where THAT came from and, of course, Nate had followed them to the plane and saved her.
RIP Thug #2. Meanwhile, whatever Dr. Mom gave to Thug #3 and #4 has made them throw up and, we assume, they expire.
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit, was that MD 20/20
Nate wants to join their traveling circus. He is heading to Chicago as well to try to get on a fishing crew. Dr. Mom doesn’t trust him, but Charlie argues that everyone can’t be monsters, SOME people have to be alright. At this point, we know, for sure, Nate is NOT alright. Nate joins their posse and suddenly they are at Wrigley Field and the Cubs are losing.
When they arrive in downtown Chicago, people are fighting in the street.
Suddenly, everything is waterfront property
Back with Danny, he has had another asthma attack and has collapsed in a field in view of a farmhouse. I think Sooki lives there.
Aaron leads them to The Grand- it was the hotel where he was married. (Did he eat his wife? I’m just kidding he really isn’t that fat. He’s chubby. He’s Hurley-LITE)
Where everybody knows your name
They walk immediately to the bar and tells the bartender (who is Miles) that they are looking for Miles Matheson.
He acts like he doesn’t know who they are talking about. Charlie explains that he has to be here and If you know anyone who knows him, tell him Miles’s brother was dead, murdered by militia. Charlie says she is Miles’s niece. Miles tells Charlie to “Come with him, but ONLY you.” Nate pulls a knife on him suspecting foul play and Miles says “She’s my niece.” The travelers leave the bar with Miles.
Danny awakens in bed in the farmhouse.
Hands up, boy!
A woman has him at gunpoint, which isn’t particularly hospitable. The woman’s name is Grace she tells Danny that he had an asthma attack and throws him an inhaler.
He doesn’t know what an inhaler is. The inhaler was her son’s, and the woman asks Danny to explain the handcuffs and wants to know if “Monroe’s boys” followed him here? Danny decides to leave, but then takes a catnap.
Back at “Cheers,” Charlie explains the whole story to Miles. She asks “Why did Monroe want my dad and why does he want you?” Miles says “Monroe thinks your Dad knew something important and may have told me about it.” “What?” Charlie asks “Why the lights went out and maybe how to turn them back on. If Monroe got the power back on he could get tanks and planes going and steamroll the entire continent” Miles says. He would wipe out all of the other militias. Charlie asks “How are WE going to get Danny back?” Miles says “I didn’t say I was going with you. Your brother is bait and if I go after him it won’t be good for him or for me.” Charlie begs “I’ve lost everyone I care about. You are going to help me get him back because we are family.” Miles replies, coldly “Family? Kid, I don’t even know you.” Charlie storms out, back into the bar. Dr Mom wants to know what’s wrong- Charlie just wants to go. Miles has followed Charlie back into Cheers.
Nate jumps at Miles. Miles catches him and exposes his “Militia” symbol branded on his arm (It’s the Motorola logo).
Miles asks “When did you enlist?” Nate hightails it out of there.
Later at Miles”s crib, Miles tells Charlie ”They were hoping to flush me out. Which is exactly what they did.” Charlie asks what is he going to do? Miles does what any sensible human being on the verge of being captured by the Motorolla Militia does: He goes to the liquor cabinet and pulls out “the last bottle of single malt in Chicago.”
Last bottle of Scotch in Chicago-I’m surpised my friend, Hugo Farfan, didn’t sniff this out Post Black-out Hour 5
