After putting the post on high alert, Michael orders the remaining troops, including Frank, Trevor and Chase, to deploy immediately. With their loved ones now off the post, Roland, Pamela, Denise, Roxy and Claudia Joy commiserate at the Hump Bar looking for solace, but soon find their lives may be in jeopardy.
