Gray Anderson is back into town and there are people buzzing around him at City Hall. Eric and Jake walk into City Hall and see Gray sitting in a chair looking beat up.

Gray says there was fallout from an attack on Lawrence. Topeka is a mess and the governor is no where to be found. New York was spared because NYPD caught a few guys with a rented van and a 20-kiloton bomb in a steel drum. **Robert Hawkins had a curious reaction to the news about New York** Washington D.C. is gone.

Jake tells Gray, Jimmy, Billy and Eric about the deal he made with Jonah. Gray doesn't like the deal because he believes that deals can not be made with a guy like Jonah. Gray is adamant about it after his bad experiences outside of Jericho. Eric agrees with Gray so they do not have a deal with Jonah in place anymore.

Skylar goes to Gracie's Market to get the jewelry box back. She wants it after hearing about New York and the possibility that her parents could still be alive.

Jonah meets Jake for the trade. Jonah arrives with a truck filled with food and Jake arrives without Mitchell. Jake explains that the town didn't agree with his proposal. Jake wants to know if he can fix it on his own. Jonah doesn't say a word and he gets in his car and drives away.

Dale is in the back of Gracie's Market putting the vase away when he sees the jewelry box that Skylar wants back. Gracie lied and said she traded it away but it's in the back.

The town of Jericho is still celebrating Halloween. They are trick or treating dressed in costumes and walking around City Hall. A couple of Jonah's men walk up on Bill with a gun and go to the holding cell to get Mitchell out. They get him out of the cell and place Bill in. Bill yells for Gray after they leave and Gray grabs a gun and goes after them. Jonah's men are walking through the crowd of people celebrating Halloween and Gray is chasing them and yelling at them. Jake sees Gray chasing some men with a gun and runs after him. Gray cocks the gun and is about to aim and fire when Jake runs into him and stops him from shooting.

Jake and Eric walk into the house to talk to their father when they see Emily. Emily tells the boys that their father went into shock and they all run into the room where Johnston is on the floor and he's not breathing. Gail Green and April Green are performing CPR on him and they are trying to get Mayor Johnston to breathe. He finally does take a breath.
April tells them they need heavy duty meds or Johnston won't last longer then 12 hours or a day. Jake and Eric come to the conclusion that they can get the meds from Rouge River and that they need to leave immediately. Eric and Jake are walking out the door when Gail sees them and tells them to leave now.

Emily is going to see Jonah to see if she can get the medical supplies she needs for Johnston.

Heather advises Jake that he will have trouble outrunning something, she goes into a rant of advice about the truck including which side the gas tank is on just in case someone starts shooting at him. Jake interrupts Heather while she's speaking and then she kisses him passionately before he leaves. Heather feels awkward about the kiss when Jake doesn't leave immediately but he's waiting for his brother Eric to go with him.

Eric is packing up to leave and Gray sees him packing. Eric tells Gray he is going to Rouge River with Jake. Gray tells Eric not to stop for anything and to be careful. Eric asks Gray to keep an eye on everything while he's gone.
