On the eve of battle, Sims finds himself troubled by Marcus’ announcement that Daniel doesn’t exist, but presses forward with preparations for the final battle anyway. Smith is discovered by one of the women running the children’s home, who gets him to safety, and he’s able to inform Kurdy of Sims’ movements. Armed with that information, Jeremiah sets out to settle the score once and for all, to kill Sims himself. At Thunder Mountain, one of Sims’ infiltrators is captured, and Marcus is able to avert the takeover of the base. When Jeremiah catches up with Sims, he discovers that the seed of distrust has already been planted, and that Sims is already questioning the existence of Daniel. But is that enough for Jeremiah to spare his life and possibly stop the war before the first battle is fought?

Notes: This was the final episode of Jeremiah, which was cancelled by MGM despite efforts to regroup the creative team after the departure of J. Michael Straczynski, who left in a dispute with the studio (and openly said he would never work with MGM again). The airdates for the latter half of the season season are taken from the episodes’ world premiere dates in Canada, where the entire season was aired in order on a weekly basis with no interruptions. In the U.S., the Showtime network buried the final episodes, airing them back-to-back in the wee hours of weekend mornings, with virtually no promotion to draw attention to the lame duck show’s return after months off the air.
