The Grey Mile

Previously on Day of the Dead.
Hey, Rhodes! I'm Dr.
There's not just a cop down there.
There's something else.
Ahhhhh!!!! Ahhhhhh!!!!!!! No! I'm a doctor.
You make sure she doesn't tell anyone about what happened here today.
Yes, ma'am.
You can bring real change to Mawinhaken.
- All you gotta do is vote.
- I'm the mayor.
You are an evil woman! No! I am not losing this election because my idiot husband murdered a man! It was an accident! We just have to hide the body until the election's over.
Sweetheart? I'm in a very tight race and it would be unfortunate if the mayor's son got caught drinking under age with his dickhead friends.
Man, where is this party? Oh! We got your test results back.
Well, they gotta be bad if you're here on your wedding day.
Excuse me.
I'm a little lost.
Oh, come on! What does Pops have on you? Why does he think he can get you to drop out of the race? I mean, it's not like we have any secrets.
Our whole life's an open book.
We're not doing anything shady.
We are trying to smuggle a corpse out of a nursing home.
How does Pops know about that?! He doesn't.
Oh, thank God.
Look, don't worry about Pops.
Right now we have to deal with that body before anyone finds out that you killed him.
Jesus Christ, could you say it any louder? Holy shit, he's alive! I didn't kill him! Thank you, Jesus.
Everything's gonna be alright.
He was eating a leg, right? Like, a human leg? Like, with a foot and everything? No, no, no.
That-that's impossible.
There's gotta be a rational explanation.
Why do you need that? Just in case he was eating a leg.
Where'd he go? Oh, my God.
He's gone.
I think he went out that way.
You wanna go after him? No, no, no.
We-we have to call the police.
What're you doing? Nicole, think for one second.
Okay? All of those people out there saw me arguing with that guy.
Now he has a bullet in his head.
A bullet that came from my gun.
We call the police, I lose everything.
Mawinhaken is my home.
The people here are my neighbors, my friends, my family.
I made a promise to protect them.
If someone hurts one of my cubs, they're going down.
If I stop that lunatic, I'll be a hero.
Screw Pops Parker.
Screw being mayor.
I could be governor.
She's lost it.
You think? I'm Paula Bowman and I approve this message.
He jumped right in front of my car, you saw it, - there was nothing I could do.
- I know, it's not your fault.
Let's just get him to the hospital.
We don't know how bad he's hurt.
Forget it.
I show up with a guy that I hit with my car and they're gonna call the police.
We could use the police.
We got a lot to tell them about.
Cam, I have a record.
I'm on parole.
I am not going back to jail.
Hey! Hey! Why?! Why is there a body back here? Oh, God! Oh, God!! Please don't kill me! - We're not gonna kill you.
- The zombies might.
We're not gonna hurt you.
You have nothing to be afraid of.
Mmm, again, the zombies.
Lauren, you're not helping.
Lauren? What's up, Doc? You two know each other? We've met.
Why am I in the back of your hearse? Because Cam wouldn't let me leave you on the side of the road.
You ran out into the street like a crazy person.
We had no other choice.
There was a man.
There was a man in the woods.
He he was eating a person.
That can't be our zombies from the funeral home, they were way behind us.
Maybe it's spreading.
Wha-wait are are you guys saying zombies? What are you, insane? What else would you call something that digs itself out of a grave and tries to eat you alive? Jesus, Lauren.
When did this happen? About 30 minutes ago.
Alright, we gotta get you to a hospital immediately.
- Yes.
- Christ! How many times do I have to say it? No hospitals.
We'll-we'll go to my office.
Yeah, like I'd ever step foot in that place again.
I I know where we can go.
Okay, just forget about the bite.
We need to get the hell out of town.
Lauren, you could get a blood infection and you could die.
Sure, why not? Let's add a flat to today.
God, you're a pain in my ass.
Come on.
Come on.
Come on.
It's Amy.
I'm getting married! There's an infirmary here.
I'll stitch you up.
It'll take five minutes, tops.
Hey, what do you think those protestors are about? Do you think it's elderly abuse? People of advanced age have rights, too.
- If the elderly - Cam, it's a polling place.
They're pissed about the election.
Come on, let's go.
As your campaign manager, I need to know what Pops has on you.
You wanna talk about this right now? If we get out of this, that is the next fire I need to put out.
It's Luke, okay? He's Trey isn't Oh, my God! Does Trey know? No, he doesn't.
He can never find out.
Nobody can.
- Paula! - Nobody.
Trey? Trey? Trey? Trey? Trey? You in here? Trey? Trey? Trey? Hey.
What the hell are you doing? I was just looking around.
I was thinking, I saw this medical mysteries show once where a guy got shot in the head and lived.
But when he woke up, all he could speak was French.
What if the same thing happened with our guy? What if the bullet damaged a part of the brain that distinguishes between people and food? Please, Dr.
Bowman, explain to me which part of the brain turns someone into a cannibal? Jesus, Paula, you don't have to be mean about it.
I was just thinking out loud.
Let's just find this asshole.
It's McDermott.
Leave a message and I'll call you back.
Dad, there's some serious shit going on.
Where are you? Call me back.
Ahhh!!! Come on.
Ahhhh!!! Come on.
What the hell is going on?! Let me out of here! Ahhhhh!!!! Oh, no, no, no, no! Argh!!!!!! Come on, come on! Ahhhh!!!! Is that a fucking tooth? Trey.
Is that Paula's? Why do you have it? Trey, you're a wonderful guy.
You are sweet and charming and kind, and Paula doesn't deserve you.
What're you talking about? I know you're never gonna leave her.
This way you don't have to.
Oh, my God, you took this on purpose? When she finds that lunatic, she'll try and shoot him, but click, no bullets.
And then he'll do to her what he did to those people back there.
And then we can be together.
We can't.
Don't give her that clip.
This will all work out perfectly if you just do nothing.
She's the mother of my child.
Some of this tissue has already becoming necrotic.
I'm gonna have to remove the margins before I can stitch it.
Just, uh, let me get something to numb the area.
No! Forget it.
Lauren, it's just a local anesthetic.
No drugs.
You of all people should know that.
But it's gonna hurt like hell.
French? What what are you doing? Why why are you on oxygen? I have lung cancer.
Remember that death sentence you dropped on me this morning? Yeah, but you weren't on oxygen.
So, is this business or personal? Oh, no, it's definitely business.
Don't change the subject.
I was having a little trouble catching my breath.
After I had a cigarette.
You should not be smoking.
I'm dying, kid.
What's it matter? If I gotta go, I'm gonna go out enjoying myself, hmm? - I like her.
You want one? - Hey.
No, no.
Absolutely not.
Buzz kill.
Nobody's answering at the police station.
- She gonna be okay? - Calm down.
I'll be fine.
I was asking him.
I don't know if that bite's gonna turn you into one of those things or not.
Honestly, I have no idea what the pathology of this is.
You're the doctor, aren't you supposed to know this shit? Oh, sorry they didn't teach zombie epidemiology in med school.
Gotcha! Come on out.
I'm not gonna hurt ya.
Son of a bitch.
- Paula, I need to talk to you.
- He's not even here.
Paula, it's not what you think.
Nicole, look out! What the hell? No! Please, don't.
Just don't.
I'm so sorry.
You didn't deserve this.
Is she She just loved you so much.
She's like family.
I don't get it.
What the hell happened to my clip? Maybe it just fell out? Clips don't just fall out, Trey.
I don't know, Paula.
Does it really matter right now? Yes! If my gun had been loaded, Nicole wouldn't be dead.
You're just going to leave her? Yes, Trey.
Leave her.
Fuck, he's gone.
Let's go.
I can't I can't quite reach.
Hurry up, man.
You're pulling my arm off.
I'm almost there, almost there.
- Dude, my hand's slipping.
- Almost there.
My hand's slipping, oh! Shit! My kicks.
Look, it's not funny.
Man, you're right there.
Just grab the keg.
Pull it out.
Come on.
Yeah, just pull it out.
Yeah, okay, I gotcha.
- Pull, bro.
- I'm pulling.
There you go.
Today sucks.
Okay, our one senior skip day and the funniest thing that we have done is chase Cam around a cemetery.
Yeah, it was pretty weak.
Man, look.
If you wanna kick Cam's ass, I'll kick Cam's ass.
'Cause I'm good like that.
No, man, it's not that I wanna kick his ass.
I just Alright, what's up? You gotta talk to me.
I don't know.
Bro, I'm here for you.
It's just Cam and I used to be best friends Holy fuck.
I-I think it's the party! Yo, it's the party! - It's the-it's the party! - Dude.
Everybody get down! That's right, eyes on me.
Not on them, asshole.
Okay, okay.
That's it.
No more stitches.
You're done.
Lauren, you could really use a couple more I'd say you're done.
Was that a gunshot? You don't think I need you all to clear out! Don't worry, I got this! What kind of drugs is this guy on? I don't think it's drugs.
Shit, I'm out! Then reload! The gun was for show, Trey! I wasn't planning on shooting someone! Paula! Paula, help me! Get off of my husband! He should be dead, right? Holy shit.
He's not the only one.
My God.
What are these things? Why is this happening? How should I know? You think it's a virus, or what if it is the fracking? What if it caused this? You're blaming me? You-you think I caused this? No! But you did bring Cleargenix here.
We have to leave.
- We can't - Now.
I have to get to City Hall.
City Hall? We need to get Luke! He's at a party out by the lake! How do you know that? Because he talks to me, Paula.
This city is in crisis, Trey.
I am the mayor! You're his mother.
Drop me off at City Hall.
You go and get Luke, then you go home.
You'll be safe there.
Did anybody hear gunshots? Oh, shit! - Those are - Yeah, we know.
Come, come on.
Is everything okay? No.
No, come on.
Blackwood! Blackwood! Blackwood! You don't know the kind of people we're messing with here.
You think I'm the bad guy.
I'm just the messenger.
You go to the cops again, talk to any reporters Oh, they'll do worse than blow your tire out.
You don't know these people.
You make yourself inconvenient and they'll make you disappear.
Where are you?! Go home, Blackwood! Keep your mouth shut! Maybe you'll stay alive.
We leave the way we came in, - through the back.
- I'm not going anywhere! Lady, those things are gonna kill us.
Yeah, well my friends live here.
I'm not gonna leave them to those monsters.
Look, she's right.
These people can't defend themselves.
It'll be a massacre.
Are you serious? We don't have time to get everyone out of here.
Cam, come on.
We can't just abandon them.
It's the greatest generation.
Some of those people might have walked on the moon.
Nobody here walked on the moon, kid.
They're people, Lauren.
I fucking hate people.
Miller? Hurry up.
I wanna get this thing out of here ASAP.
This way, assholes! - Nice bedpans.
- Is this gonna work? It has to.
Stay in your rooms! There's murderers out here.
They want to kill you! Jesus Christ, are you trying to scare them to death? I'm being honest.
Be a little less honest.
If you pull that fire alarm, all the hallway doors shut automatically at once.
We bring them in, pull that alarm, and we've trapped them.
- What now? - We wait.
- Pull it! - Not yet! Wait 'til they're all in.
Pull it! Not yet.
- Okay, they're in! - Pull it! Shit, the door didn't close! Let's go.
- You can't stay here! - Let's go.
Come on.
What-what is she doing? - What are you doing?! - It's locked! You have to open it from the inside! I'll be dead in six months.
This way at least I can make a difference.
- Please, no! - Come on! Get him outta here.
No! No! - No! - We have to go! No! No! No! No! Please! You can kiss my saggy ass.
Trent? Trent, what the hell, man? Where are you? Dude, I'm gonna leave this keg here.
