Death Comes to Paymart

Previously on Day of the Dead.
McDermott died stopping that thing.
Don't I owe it to him to tell somebody what Cleargenix is doing out there? Girl, you don't owe anything to anyone.
That's my dad.
He's not your dad anymore.
He's something else.
Trust me.
Jai is out there somewhere and I'm not taking this dress off until I see my husband again! So it's my fault we're trapped here? I can't believe I left my wife at Paymart so I could die here.
Guys, stop fighting.
Oh shit.
To anyone who can hear my voice.
We can help you.
We can get you to safety.
Get in the truck, now! Oh shit.
Come on.
Come on.
Go, go, go, go! We can't leave yet.
We still have somebody out there.
We'll find them.
Just get in! It's in the water.
Get your ass in, now! Where are you taking us? Excuse me, we have a friend that's still out there.
You know what? I am the mayor of this town and I am ordering Mom.
Dude? Trent? Jesus, man, you're okay! Thanks for looking for me, dick.
What? You ran off.
And you didn't wonder what happened to me? If I was okay? If I got away? You know, I was in the woods for hours with nothing else to eat but pineapple Jolly Ranchers.
Pineapple, my guy! Man, I called you.
I left a message.
Who listens to messages, anymore? Text me, bitch.
Think about it.
Some of the dead came back today, some of them didn't.
Yeah, but the water? I just watched it happen.
That postal worker was dead.
Like dead, dead.
And then she got sprayed with that cannon and boom.
You buying this? How do you know she wasn't gonna come back anyway? Just by being attacked? This morning, at the cemetery, before those bastards starting crawling out of the ground all the sprinklers went off, soaked every grave.
When I got to the country club the landscapers were watering the grounds.
- Yes.
- See? What? What? That guy, Jerry, at the funeral home.
I rinsed him off before I embalmed him.
Used the water from the tap.
I'm telling you.
I don't know if it's a virus, a parasite, or an alien fungus, but it's in the water.
What's that dickhole doing here? Y'all friends again? Yeah.
Yeah, I guess so.
So what was I? Like a backup friend? A backup friend? No.
It's like I don't even know you anymore.
Well, maybe you don't.
Maybe you never did.
What the hell is that supposed to mean? Hey, we've been friends all senior year.
I know you.
I know that I can't trust you to bring beer to a party, and I also know that you're a virgin.
Yeah, y'all didn't know that? I found out this morning.
Trent, just shut up.
Is the big bestie stepping in? Okay, bestie.
You tell me something about him that I don't know.
What is it, huh? I'm listening, asshole.
Speak up.
He's gay, okay? For real? Yes.
He's a homosexual.
And everyone's cool with it, too.
- Right, guys? - Cool.
Yeah uh.
If you guys just wanna throw me out to the zombies, that'd be great.
Okay, sure.
You son of a bitch! You could have helped my sister! You could have saved her! But you didn't! Please, leave me alone.
You're a doctor and you just stood there and you watched her die! She was everything I had! Get your hands off me! What on earth is going on here? I hope you die.
Cindy, you don't mean that.
You your sister, there was no way of saving her.
You you saw, she almost killed me.
I wish she had.
Herb I'm fine.
I'm fine.
Where are you taking us? Somewhere safe.
Yeah, well there are other survivors at Paymart.
You can't just leave them there.
Yeah, they're telling me there are more survivors at Paymart.
Affirmative, ok.
What are we supposed to do? Why are you asking me? People are starting to lose their shit.
They're scared.
We need a real leader.
Everybody just relax.
Probably just tripped a breaker.
I'll see if I can find the box.
What is that? Water? What is this place? He said he was taking us somewhere safe.
This looks safe to you? Okay, enough with the mystery.
I want to know what the hell we're doing You okay? Yeah.
Yeah, everything's fine.
So, crazy day, right? What? Sorry, I thought this was one of our classic Lauren/Cam banter moments.
You're wrong about something, you know.
You said I'd never make it out of this shit-hole town.
Well, as it turns out, I'm being evacuated so there.
Well, in my defense when I said that I hadn't really considered invasion by the undead as an option.
I was really just giving you shit about not having a future.
You might still be right about that part.
What is it? It's just, I thought my dad was avoiding me.
I thought he was still pissed about our fight.
When I left the house this morning I thought he was just in his room giving me the silent treatment, but he wasn't even there.
I was talking shit on him to you, and he might have already been dead.
What am I supposed to do? He's still walking around out there.
He's still my dad.
I still love him.
Look You can't think of him like that.
It's not the same thing.
Could you do that? Just forget him? 'Cause I couldn't.
I know you feel alone right now but you're not.
I'm with you.
Oh, my God! I'm such an idiot.
I'm so sorry.
Uh, everything's cool between us.
Not that there is an "us".
We're just friends.
But I'm gonna walk off.
Excuse me? Can somebody tell us what's going on here? My wife is still out there.
Hello?! Amy, I am so sorry.
I should be sad, right? I mean, that's what happens.
People die and you're sad, but I'm not sad.
I'm not mad.
I don't feel anything.
Everybody's been through a lot today.
I'm I'm sure it's just the shock.
Maybe you just need some time alone.
It wasn't easy to be your daughter.
You were demanding and elitist.
Frankly, you were an asshole.
But I want you to know that I forgive you.
You were just trying to make me into something you thought I should be.
I'm just glad I didn't turn out that way.
Stop it! Let go of me! I didn't kill anyone! She said she wished he was dead and now he's dead.
You don't have to be a cop to do that math.
Just lock her in the back room 'til we figure it out.
You can't do this.
I didn't do anything! We didn't survive this long just to have someone start killing us from the inside.
I don't think she killed him.
He has a huge gash in his side.
And where did that come from? I don't know, maybe Maybe it was out on the road before we got here.
He got attacked so maybe I Look, I let innocent people die.
People I called here to help us! Because I didn't do anything! I'm not letting that happen again.
Are you okay with this? It's just a precaution.
I heard them in the truck.
They think it's in the water and that's how it spreads.
Jesus, man, what if they're right? Cleargenix sent us here to save people and to cover the company's ass, but everybody here could be infected with this shit.
What happens when you take 'em out of here, huh? You're gonna be responsible for spreading the goddamn plague.
Unless you can contain it, stop it, we're not letting anyone out of this town.
You understand? Look, all I'm saying is that I'm not mad at you.
What do you have to be mad about? Because you lied to me.
And you made me look like an idiot.
The whole time I've been pushing you to have sex with girls I should have been pushing you to have sex with guys.
I don't wanna be pushed to have sex with anyone.
And that's why you're a virgin.
Luke? Can I talk to you? Oh, hey, Ms.
Look, I'm really sorry about what happened to your husband.
Look, if you ever need, you know, to talk or anything.
Trent, go away.
Stop hitting on my mom.
I was trying to be here for Paula in her time of need.
God, that kid's a creep.
Yeah, he is.
Listen, I want you to know that I heard everything you said, and you were right.
About my career, about your father, and about the type of mother that I've been.
You're right about all of it.
You know, believe it or not, I actually had no interest in getting into politics.
But sometimes a thing happens that changes you forever.
Suddenly all the places you felt safe don't feel safe anymore and all the people you trusted, they take advantage.
What're you talking about? What happened? You know, when you were born you were You were so little and so helpless.
I just The thought of you growing up in a world with that kind of darkness just so I decided to do something about it.
I ran for mayor and I won.
I uh I tried to make this town a place where bad things didn't happen.
And I think maybe I got lost in that.
I was so consumed with keeping the power that I forgot why I wanted it in the first place.
You know, your father, he always saw the light in everything.
Even in the darkest times.
You were that for him.
He loved you more than anything.
And he was so proud of you.
I haven't been there for you.
But that's going to change.
Never apologize for who you are.
Not to me, not to anyone.
I love you so much, okay? I love you, too, Mom.
I've been all over this room.
There's no way out.
We're completely locked in.
So we're safe.
We don't know who these people are.
Okay, yeah, but they're trying to keep us safe.
- They rescued us, right? - And why? Why do they have us locked in a building in the middle of nowhere? Something doesn't feel right.
We don't know what happened.
She threatened him, everyone heard her.
But you had Cindy locked up, it couldn't have been her.
We have to find her before she hurts someone else.
He's gone.
This isn't happening.
This isn't happening.
What's up? I'm Trent.
What? My name's Trent.
How's that working out for you? You're funny.

What's the matter? You never heard of collateral damage? What if we're wrong? What if they don't have it? Take that chance? Hmm?! You've seen what it does to people! You want that all over the world? We're stopping it in its tracks.

I didn't hurt anybody.
Here's the thing.
I don't believe you.
I've sacrificed everything I believed in to protect those people out there.
What do you think I should do to you? Let me go.
I can't do that.
You put us both in this situation.
If I let you live then those troopers died for nothing.
And if you kill me then you'll be a murderer.
But everyone in here will be safe.
In all this death, what's one more life? No.
I'm really sorry about this.
I really am.

Ugh, I'm so sick of almost dying.
- Hey, are you okay? - Yeah, yeah.
You okay? I feel like I just woke up from a four-day bender.
You look like it, too.
There it is.
There's that banter.

He saved us.
Those motherfuckers They brought us here to kill us.
Cleargenix is cleaning up their mess.
