Mike attends a Men’s Rally he agreed to before the Institute. The Rally forces him to face and resolve his conflict between his “hippy” values and the military. The Men’s Rally also erupts into a riot in front of Mike and his University of Michigan friends.

Rick tests classified equipment for the military. Mandy grapples with trying to understand why she feels disconnected.
