Episode 23 – The Dark Tower
We pick up where we left off – Miles & Bass pointing coil guns at each other.
Politics makes strange war-fellows.
Subterranean River – “You first prick.”
Nora manages to stay put while Miles & Bass find themselves on the “beach.”
Randall busts up “George W” to retrieve a hidden pass card.
Dan: “Your friends are gone – you’re our guest but you’re dead if you try for level 12.”
Neville keeps Franklin waiting. Neville pretends he is above the ruthless nature of Monroe. Even more devious by staging a fake assault by Major Franklin.
Monroe waits for Miles to wake up to start beating the crap out of him.
Militia takes shot at both… Then takes another shot at Bass when he announces who he is… oops!
Flashback 10 years after the blackout – reminiscing then bomb hits.
Meanwhile, Aaron is snooping around in the code and discovers his code is what he wrote at MIT. University sold his code to DoD. It is the tower’s operating system.
Neville decides to blast the blast doors. Jason “Sorry sir, but my head is spinning at how fast your switch sides.”
Next, Neville’s speech has no compelling reason for Jason to abide, except maybe to guarantee Charlie & Rachel’s safety.
Meanwhile, Rachel tries to guilt trip Grace into going along with level 12 breach.
Denied. Grace rejects the offer – then puts Grace to sleep and takes her pass code.
Flashback 10 years after blackout – Miles wakes up to Bass & Nora – Monroe shows his first ruthless act – killed his wife and kids and draped the US flag over the coffin to make an example
Meanwhile, Aaron explains his backdoor to Rachel but Charlie doesn’t get it. Determines it was accessed on purpose to launch nanites.
Bass open tackles Miles and continues fisticuffs. Miles walks away and then they have a heart-to-heart about Miles assassination attempt – copter shows up trying to kill Bass, they split up and Bass gets a solid in the chin from militia thug.
Nora confronts Rachel about her and Miles but suggests Miles will choose her every time.
Neville has worse-for-wear Monroe and explains there has been a change in management.
Neville is great at going from a smile to a scowl in an instant.
Blasted door reveals an opening.
Neville, “Sir, I could never say this under your employ, but you have become foolish and deranged and you have a borderline erotic fixation on Miles Matheson”
Neville: “Can’t just shoot people in the face.”
Jason fetches Neville to the opening to the Tower.
Team Charlie set a trap for Dan & Company but they discover it…Nora pulls out a hat trick and sets off the trip wire with a bowling fire extinguisher. The irony.
Nora is mortally wounded. Why doesn’t Rachel do the noble thing and dig the Christmas Tree Capsule out of her knee to save Nora’s life?
Miles shows up in Monroe’s tent and cuts his rope… “You’re asking the wrong question, bass, ask me why I couldn’t… we’re still brothers” then, “Run Bass, – Monroe’s escaping!”
Was it his last noble deed or just using Bass for distraction?
Grace wakes up and stumbles into “Don’t I know you?” from Neville.
Sophie’s choice – Rachel always choose mission over family. Nora doesn’t help.
Charlie – “Danny’s dead, mom but I’m here.”
Charlie comes under attack – Miles stabs militia.
Miles won’t leave Nora.
Miles and Charlie attempt to get Nora to infirmary but she dies in his arms.
Neville bumps into Rachel and Aaron – “Yeah, because you’re so honest.”
Miles interrupts and buys time to get into the control room.

The biggest return on any keyboard.
Just do it Aaron… devil on her shoulder.
Lights come back on – Foster doesn’t waste any time.
Monroe in a lighting storm.
Randall access main control room and damages entry with weapon.
“When you burn down the old, new things grow.”
The east coast is wide open.
Randall: “I’m a Patriot, Rachel” – then he blew his brains out… why?
“Sir, Randall Flynn did it… Mr. President, its time to go home.”
American Colony – Gitmo
