1 Previously on Day of the Dead.
Come on! Don't worry about Pops.
Right now we have to deal with that body before anyone finds out that you killed him.
Holy shit, he's alive! Hey! I show up with a guy that I hit with my car and they're gonna call the police.
I'm on parole.
I am not going back to jail.
We need to get the hell out of town.
Lauren, you could get a blood infection - and you could die.
- What the hell's going on?! Let me outta here! If my gun had been loaded, Nicole wouldn't be dead! Goodbye.
Paula! Help me! Get off of my husband! He's not the only one.
It's locked.
You have to open it from the inside! Get him outta here.
No! You can kiss my saggy ass.
Trent, what the hell, man? Where are you? We just let her die.
She was my patient.
I should have saved her.
It was her choice.
Think about it.
If you only had a couple months to live, what would you choose? Die slowly in pain or save everyone you know like a badass? It was pretty badass, wasn't it? I can only hope my death is half as cool.
Where's the fire department? Oh, no.
I think I left my phone in there.
Here, use mine.
It's dead.
Uh, there's a charger in the car.
You are blowing up.
You got a message from a guy named Shawn.
He's wondering where you are.
Sorry, wondering where the fuck you are.
Uh, another from Amy and Amy, - Amy - Shit! Oh Lauren I need a ride.
What's the status of our injured detective? Last we checked, he was still under sedation, but he's gonna start asking questions.
Well, I can't have anyone talking about that thing until I find out what it is.
Just keep him under for a few more hours.
If we keep sedating him like this, we're gonna turn his brain into mush.
I can live with that.
Come on.
What the hell? Hey, Kyle! Julie! Whew.
Kyle! Julie! Where are you guys? What the hell is this? Gross.
Yoo-hoo! Oh, yeah.
Where's the party at, bitches? We should be getting the hell out of town right now.
- I can't believe we're doing this.
- Argh! It won't go through.
The tower's probably overloaded.
Service in this town is shit.
Who's your service provider? Lauren, look, my fiancée, her family, all our friends, they're at the country club right now.
I already saw one of those things out there.
If there are more - if there are more of them - Relax.
I'll get you there.
Whoa, whoa, hey, hey, pull over! Jesus Christ, Cam, what the shit? Where are you going? The police.
Somebody has to let them know what's happening.
Get back in here! Lauren, I'm going into the police station.
It's the safest place I could possibly be.
Okay, I'm hearing how privileged that sounds, just wanna let you know I'm aware of it.
Lauren, look.
Please, please.
I gotta get to Amy, alright? Okay, okay.
Listen, it's gonna be fine.
You've got this under control.
No, it's not under control.
I have 10 officers.
Ten officers because you cut my budget! I told you! I told you this was gonna happen! You run an ugly, divisive campaign and you pit people against each other and violence breaks out.
Okay, that is not what happened! Then what did? Who are you calling? State police.
Get your hand off of my phone.
You call in the staties, the situation is instantly out of our hands.
I'm getting reports of riots, assault, a bombing at the goddamn nursing home.
It's like the end of the world out there and we don't even know for sure what's going on! Exactly why we need to take a minute to figure it out.
It's zombies.
Cam, what're you doing here? And what the hell happened to you? The dead.
They're coming back to life.
I came here to warn you.
I'm not lying, I swear.
You know what, Gloria? You go ahead.
You call those state troopers and you let them know we've got a real zombie problem in Mawinhaken.
We'll wait 'til we know exactly what we're dealing with here.
- You're not gonna do anything? - We are doing something.
You let us handle it.
Cam, you want to make yourself useful? See if you can find your old man.
We can use him at work.
It's a little busy.
Trent! Help! Somebody, help! Help me! Come on.
Come on, come on, pick up.
Are you kidding me right now? No service! No! No! It's the fucking Enfields.
What're you doing? We're here, go.
What do I tell them? Tell them the truth.
That I'm late to my wedding because of zombies? They'll think I'm crazy.
Who cares what they think? Are you really worried about that right now? Look, no judgement, but it's not the best sign if you're more scared of what's in there than you are of what's out here.
My father-in-law is not the most understanding person.
You of all people should Me of all people what? Look, all I'm saying is that, uh, you know, Herb has treated me like a child ever since you know Oh, I'm sorry you feel emasculated.
I went to prison! Get out of my car! Okay, look, you should take these.
- Kiss my ass.
- They're antibiotics.
For the bite.
Take one every 12 hours with food.
Come on, Luke.
Where are you? Oh! Jeez.
Trent, man, the Enfields, they're real! What's an Enfield? - From the story! - Man, forget your story! We got bigger problems.
There's a bear here.
Oh, my God.
Hey! Where the hell have you been? You look like shit.
Look, I need to talk to Amy.
No, what we need to do is get you cleaned up.
If Amy sees you like this, she's gonna have an aneurism.
She's already stress puked twice today.
- Shawn, listen.
- What the hell's wrong with you? Do you even wanna marry Amy? Yeah.
Yeah, of course I do.
Then why are you fucking this up? Goddammit, I don't have time for this shit! The whole town's overrun with zombies! Now you pull yourself together, you little pussy.
You are about to marry the most perfect girl alive and you're acting like a little beta bitch.
If you wanna back out of this wedding, be a man and do it.
Don't make up some lame-ass story.
- No, I - No.
I will not let anybody break my best friend's heart - on her wedding day.
- I swear.
I swear I'm telling the truth.
Put on the motherfucking tux and get motherfucking married! Hey! Shawn! - Open the door! - Not until you get dressed.
I'm dressed! You look like a homeless guy going to prom.
Open the goddamn door.
Sweetie, maybe this is a sign.
Maybe you and Jai shouldn't be getting married.
Dad, I'm not backing out.
I love him.
Plus, I've been starving myself for the last eight months to fit into this dress.
There's no way we are calling off this wedding! Everything's cool, he's here.
- I took care of it.
- Thank you.
Jai, where have you been? Okay, look.
We have to get everyone out of here.
What are you talking about? The Enfields, man, they came out of the lake! They're like, uh, dead, but not dead! Did you tap the keg without me? No! No, I'm not drunk! I'm telling you, they're zombies.
Zombies? That's what you're going with? Just say you don't wanna marry me.
- I'm serious.
- I don't understand what you're talking about, okay? Do you hear yourself right now? It was a bear that did this.
No, man.
I swear.
I-I saw it with my own eyes.
Why are you doing this? Our friends are laying down there dead and you are talking about this bullshit! Amy, please.
Alright, look.
You know me.
I'd never make anything like this up.
I'm not that creative.
I love you.
I want to marry you.
But this is life and death, and I need you to trust me here.
Uh Jai, I I'm gonna puke.
- Amy, wait! - Don't get any on the dress! Amy! - Amy! - Go away! Yeah, Jai! Go away! I'm sure he's fine.
He does this.
Just checks out, sometimes for a couple of days.
He's checked out even when he's around.
He's been struggling since your mom died.
What about me? Cam.
You know he loves you.
Does he? He doesn't seem to give a shit about me when he's around.
He doesn't want me here, he doesn't want me to go away to college.
What the hell does he want from me? It'll be okay.
Just stay here.
Man, where are you going? I'm trying to find service, okay? - I'm we gotta call the cops.
- Shit.
Man, where are you going?! - What are you doing? - Shh.
Come on.
Come on! McDermott.
Oh, my God.
McDermott? - Those were fucking zombies! - Yeah, I know.
- That's what I told you.
- What are we gonna do? Okay, this is all your fault because you told that story.
- What? - This is your fault.
What do we do now? Man, what are you doing? I'm cramping.
Are you kidding me? Don't move.
You think they're gone? Let's get outta here.
Cells of subject A and subject B appear to be infected with unknown virus post-contact with host.
Note inclusion bodies in nucleus.
Virus seems to restore mitochondrial function and repair cellular membranes thereby reversing oncosis and reanimating the dead cell.
Holy shit.
This thing is a cure for death.
Perimeter check, over.
Waiting on lab check.
What is it? I'm busy! Are you there, over.
Answer me, hello? Hello? Waiting on lab check, over.
Where are you? Check in.
I got some questions.
And I'm assuming you're the one with answers.
Adam, we need you for a perimeter check on the southwest side.
We're doing a swap right now.
Please don't kill me.
I-I just work for the company.
I don't know anything.
Yeah? This, uh, this isn't about the drilling, huh? This is-this is about that thing, isn't it? Look, I-I have a family.
I have a daughter.
- Please, please don't hurt me.
- Cut the bullshit! I saw you light Rhodes up out there.
You don't strike me as the, uh, beg-for-your-life type.
What is it you wanna know, Detective? That's better.
Why were you keeping me here? Hmm? I'm a cop.
People know I'm here, - they'd come looking for me.
- Well, I would tell them the truth.
That you died when the cave collapsed.
But now I am re-thinking that decision.
Something about staring down the barrel of a gun will make you do that.
Don't even think about it.
Don't do this.
I'll shoot you.
Oh, shit.
Looks like someone knows that you are out of your room.
You should have left when you had the chance.
I thought I took your gun.
Well, it appears he found another one.
You are a police officer.
You're not gonna kill me.
You were gonna kill me.
Put your gun down! McDermott, you okay? Not really, no.
But I'm glad to see you.
I said put it down! - Shoot her! - No, no, no, no! Hey, don't-don't you dare! Take her out.
Don't! - Take her out! - Don't! Amy! Amy, open the door! Go away! Look, if you don't listen to me, we're all gonna die.
None of this would be happening if she'd have stayed with Shawn.
That means a lot, Herb.
I've always thought of you as a father.
Oh, don't brown-nose, Shawn.
- You're better than that.
- Yeah.
Really, Herb? It's our wedding day.
Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it.
I am in control of my life by the choices I make.
Guests are getting pretty restless out there.
I am a powerful presence.
What a waste of 50,000 bucks.
I am calm and relaxed.
Maybe you could go out there and tell everybody we just need a few more minutes.
I'll get Amy out of there.
Don't worry.
We'll see about that, Tiger.
What a shit show.
Give me four fingers of the strongest thing you've got.
Don't be shy.
That's good.
I can't raise any of my people on the radio.
What? What're you talking about? Where is everybody? Tucker, come in.
Tucker, answer me.
Tucker, what the hell is going on out there? Oh, God.
This is Captain Pike of the Mawinhaken Police Department.
We need troopers here immediately.
As many as you can spare.
Hey, it's Luke.
Why aren't you texting me? Luke, it's Mom.
I, um There's a bit of a situation going on in town here and I, uh, I just wanna make sure that you're safe.
Look, I'm just gonna say it.
This shit's messed up.
Hey, do you think that guy's mad that I hit him with a stick? I don't think he took it personally.
We gotta keep moving.
My car is on the other side of these trees.
What? No, no, no.
I'ma stay here.
I'ma stay right here.
No, we can do this.
We have to.
Let's go.
We're not gonna make it, man.
Yes, we are.
Trent, man, we need to stick together.
I just wanna go home.
We will, you just need to calm down.
- Fuck this.
- Trent!
