Recap

The episode begins and Gen. Bressler lets Tom and the 2nd Mass go. He explains he's been waiting for Manchester to come to his senses and let them go on the offensive, but since he's not, he's declaring martial law. Tom won't go along with it, so Bressler orders them locked back up. But before they can go back in their cells, there's a signal for an outer perimeter breech. They then charge upstairs to find skitters in the common area, led by Red Eye. Bressler's ready to shoot when Ben pops out from among the rebels. Bressler still won't give the order to stand down so members of the 2nd Mass stand in front of the skitters, in a sign of solidarity. ..
