S02E16 Shelter Skelter

The episode title is based on the title of the Beatles song “Helter Skelter”. Harry Dobbs is a family man obsessed with surviving a nuclear war. He has even built himself a fallout shelter in his basement. One afternoon, his wife, Sally, makes plans to visit her sister in Kansas City, taking their two kids with her. Harry has their son, Jason, downstairs in the shelter, teaching him to shoot a gun when she wants to leave. They have an argument over teaching a seven-year-old to shoot and why she has to go to her sister’s. He becomes frantic when he thinks Sally might’ve revealed their “family” shelter. He wants no one to know about it.
