In an opening scenes that can only conjurer up images of Naomi Dorrit's arrival on the Island for any seasoned LOST fan, we are introduced to yet another pair of young people embarking on a mission to get in into, yes, get into--the LA Block!
The young pair of pilots are able to start a plane and actually get over the wall from their side, but once in the LA Block, the plane is immediately shot down by the drones and the government is alerted. Unfortunately the young man didn't make it, as Red Hats and Government Officials arrive on the scene, but the female pilot was able to eject and escape!
Will sets out to go a machine parts store where he is hoping to find an encrypted radio thinking that he might be able to reach out to the Pilot. He makes an attempt on the store owner's radio, but doesn't get any results. Katie and Broussard set out to find Hennessy, whose unfortunately dead on arrival! They go back to his place, which has been ransacked, including the safe that held the alien gauntlet!! They too find a radio and do make contact with someone, but they don't have the proper code, which seems to leave them with radio silence.
In the meantime to ensure they have leverage, the Red Hats are ordered to go to the Bowmans safe house and hold their children hostage there. Trying to reach Katie, Will realizes he is being followed and about to get picked up, but he is able to make contact by phone to warn her and tell her what he knows!
The Government wants to use Will to flesh out the Pilot and he is able to make contact with her through their encrypted radio. Katie in the meantime learns that kids are leverage and she's not going to stand for it! She, with Broussard willing to help, invades the safe house, kills all the Red Hands, and saves her children! They then go back to Broussards underground hideout.
The episode also briefly shows another escalation between Helena and Proxy Governor Alaca with Helena willing to downplay her hand, but clearly her telephone call to Snyder teases viewers with a role for Snyder in Helena's game.
The episode tried hard to keep up with the pace of the previous episode. It may have been a little slower, but almost more rewarding seeing things come further down to the wire for the Bowmans and wondering how in the heck are they going to get out of it, while starting to push for potentially a new kind of story, assuming at some point the Bowmans are going to make a deal to get off the Island, errrr I mean get out of the Block! ;)
