    Two Steps Back

    All three Harvest crews scramble to survive the first week of the season. In the midst of the deadliest tornado and drought year on record, two storm systems bear down on the heartland--pummeling the Roland and Sammons crews before colliding right on top of the Martin crew and dropping a deadly tornado. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in crops are destroyed--and it's a race against time for the crews to keep what paying jobs they still have. Dangerous equipment failures add tension, resulting in a perfect storm of problems that puts the entire season at risk--before it has even begun.
