I didn’t even edit this. Good luck you guys, I have to go suffer in my unbearably warm apartment until these thunderstorms pass over.
Monroe makes Nora put on a pretty dress and sexually harasses her. He then tosses her in the dungeon for a little torture porn. I mean, as much as you can get on network- this isn’t Game of Thrones. She reveals where Miles and Rachel are, and what they’re up to. After a quick chat about the importance/relevance of the Tower with Randall, Monroe sets out after her.
Doctor Todd or maybe Tom, whatever, the guy who sort of betrayed Rachel but only after she betrayed him, he saves Nora and brings her to the rebel’s hospital, where she deliriously confesses to spilling the beans on the rebels to Monroe. Miles forgives her, because he’s just a swell guy like that. Charlie and Jason make out for a while more, but they’re interrupted by some creepy guy watching them. Our rebels take off to try to beat Monroe to the tower- Nora’s along for the ride, too, because why not? Meanwhile, in Colorado/the Plains Nation (Andrew Jackson is probably upset), Randall can’t get into the tower, which isn’t really a tower so much as a bunker.
The storm encroaches ever faster, threatening to drown the city in thunder and lightning. Oh, wait, sorry, that’s the weather ticker at the bottom. I got distracted because it was more interesting. Anyway Rachel decides she’s going to go kill Monroe to avenge Danny, so Aaron is going to have to figure out the power stuff. Meanwhile, the rebels are being picked off one-by-one.
Miles decides to ferret out the mole and retrieve the missing Nora in one fell swoop. He tosses everyone’s weapons into the helicopter they took (the doc brought one of the magic power medallions when he saved Nora) and very quickly finds her. Meanwhile, everyone argues about who’s the bad guy- there’s plenty of motive to go around, and not nearly enough trust. Eventually they conclude it’s Nora herself- the truth serum they used to torture her drove her insane and turned her into Wonder Woman. Except like, less useless.
Some stuff happens, several more people get accused and it is unexciting, and all you really need to know is that they figure out it’s been Jim the whole time! Remember Jim? Miles’ friend from Annapolis? Yeah, he’s been with them the whole time and I still forgot about him.
Jim and Miles fight whilst Jim “explains” why he’s done this. Something about blaa blaa blaa losing everything. He very nearly takes Miles, but Jason shoots him in the head, then gives his dad a weird knowing look. Charlie apologises for accusing Jason of being the mole and he gets all salty. Now that all the ancillary characters are disposed of, the group takes off in the helicopter. Rachel, meanwhile, has snuck into Monroe’s tent with a grenade. She pulls the pin, aaaand….. FIN.

About the Author - DrImprobable
Before you ask, no, Dr. Improbable is not that kind of doctor, and will not be diagnosing your genital warts today. Seriously, put it away. The doc does more of the "mad science" brand of doctoring, though one day hopes to be that "time and space traveling" kind of doctor. In the meantime, Doc passes time cloning things, memorizing acronyms, and using large magnets. When not plotting all the terrible ways to destroy the human race (particularly those found on public transportation), the doc kills time by watching television and making sarcastic commentary on it.
