Storyline

Having learned Irina's secret, Nolan makes it clear that there are to be no more secrets and that they will live or die together. Nolan and the military arrest a Votan spy, Mahsuvus Gorarth, who they believe has information about a bomb - a dirty nuke - placed somewhere in New York City. Enhanced interrogation techniques aren't having the desired effect. Amanda meanwhile receives a cryptic phone call telling her to to deliver Mahsuvus to them alive or her sister Kenya will die. Irisa meets her victims who begin to gather in the same place. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This episode's title comes from the Yeats poem 'The Second Coming'. The short poem is a solid stream of allegory, biblical sounding references and mythologic imagery. The gist is that everything on Earth has been getting very bad and something much much worse is coming. "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?"
