Episode Summary

Alpha Dogs
In the near future, war has broken out in the Middle East, Air Force One has been shot down and the U.S. President is assumed to be dead. As a result, riots are rampant and there are major food and power shortages. The Joint Chiefs of Staff declare martial law and the military takes over the government. Several members of the military refuse to obey orders to take part in the takeover. Among them are Captain Owen Decker who is the commander of an elite Marine Corps unit called "10 Zulu." During his arrest, his wife is shot by his commanding officer, Colonel Devon, and his son is taken to parts unknown. Three other special ops personnel are also arrested. All four end up in William Jefferson Clinton Federal Prison. They end up spending 15 months in prison. The four find and befriend each other in prison and eventually are broken out by the "Resistance" - a group dedicated to bringing down the current military regime in power and restoring the Constitution. After being broken out, the four team members are asked to save the family of the former Joint Chief of Staff who realized his mistake in allowing the military to take over and now wants out. The team rescues the man's wife and daughters from the compound which is also the base for Decker's former commander - the one who shot his wife and took his son. During the ensuing fight, Decker finds out that his son is alive and Colonel Devon knows where he is. After completing the mission, the team decide to stick together and fight for the resistance. They are aided by a mysterious woman, Jin, who acts as their contact and gives them their assignments.moreless
