The episode begins with a flashback to the Matheson family leaving their home after the blackout. Then back in the present day 15 years after the blackout, Miles wins a sword fight with a bounty hunter, but Charlie keeps Miles from killing him, although Miles seems visibly inclined to do so. Miles then brings the group searching for Danny into the city looking for somebody.

The bounty hunter shows Miles, he's got Maggie, Charlie and Aaron in custody, and asks him to not try any of his tricks. ..
