June has a hard time adjusting to life in Chicago and wants to seek out a more active group of revels in the Chicago war zone.

June assumes Janine will go with her, but Janine wants to stay put.

Janine tells June she doesn't need her protection, and the pair part ways.

However, Janine changes her mind, and the two try to find the more active rebels when bombs start dropping from the sky.

June awakes a while later uninjured and searches for Janine.

Instead, she runs into a stunned Moira.

Commander Lawrence pitches an idea to the council for a temporary ceasefire at the contested borders to hasten the stall of trade negotiations, but the council votes against it.

Aunt Lydia has been stripped of her aunthood and wants to be reinstated, but it won't happen.

Aunt Lydia decides to blackmail Commander Lawrence into reinstating her, and the pair strike a deal, where Aunt Lydia gives him leverage over his fellow commanders on the council in exchange.

Aunt Lydia: Have you seen the new girls?
Aunt Ruth: By his hand, we’ll replace the lost children in no time with that crop.
Aunt Lydia: Yes, very special class. Well, I am eager to be of service again, fully recovered by his grace. Back in fighting shape, as they say.
Aunt Ruth: There is no need to rush. God has given you this respite to heal.
Aunt Lydia: Too much to be done.
Aunt Ruth: Lydia, the girls are not your concern anymore.
Aunt Lydia: The girls have always been my concern. I have served Gilead with everything I have.
Aunt Ruth: Praised be.
Aunt Lydia: Aunt Ruth, perhaps you could speak to the commanders about my reinstatement. Intercede on my behalf.
Aunt Ruth: Lydia, I admired your devotion when you were still active, but now, it is your time to rest.

June: I hear you’re trading with another camp. I want to come.
Steven: No, fresh meat stays here.
Janine: You really should let June go. She got a whole plane full of kids out of Gilead. I mean I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for her. I mean literally.
Steven: You do what I say.
June: Yeah. Thank you.
