Summary: With Lee Chen as back-up, Kurdy makes a trip to East Clifton and his own past. There, years ago, he sought survival by running with the toughest guys in a very tough town. When they planned an evening of recreational murder, Kurdy took off but he left two vulnerable friends behind. Now one of them is dead and the other has a score to settle. So does Tony, leader of the gang. As Tony closes in, Kurdy has to count on Lee to bring help. Will Lee pass the test?

Jeremiah's encounter with the past begins with his Rover mired in mud. On foot, he finds a cabin, a solicitous young couple, and hot food - drugged hot food. He comes to in a "Leave it to Beaver" house, fully equipped with electricity, running water, food, and a wife and son. Sandra explains that the townspeople - like a cargo cult - believe in the power of stuff. Maintaining a perfect family in a dream home will ensure they all return to the blissful time before the Big Death. There's just one problem; they can't go outside. Jeremiah has to find a way out - and persuade Sandra and young Jimmy to help him.

Great episode, it was great to see Lee Chen with Kurdy specially after the relation of this two in the past. The situation of Jeremiah was really strange but interesting.
