Warning: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!Out of the blue, a rider on a white stallion comes to the Copelands' rescue, and mows down the gang of feverheads pursuing the family.
Turns out, Karen knows the rider. He's Lamar Boone, and he's got his own "end of days fortress" named the Alamo just up the ways. He also looks like Wayne Brady.
Before getting back into the RV, Karen is debilitated by what sounds like loud wailing. Only she seems to be the only one who hears it.
Meanwhile, Sally and Quantrell are on the run from the compound, since being overtaken by feverheads.
What Sally doesn't know is that Quantrell might be turning into one.
While traipsing about in the forest for an access route to Boone's stronghold, Dana gets sucked under ground by some villainous vegetable — the Jubokko plant.
When the Copelands don't show up at the Alamo, Boone sends two emissaries to go and get them out of trouble.
The messengers lead the Copelands to the Alamo, where Boone meets them with open arms. Well, he meets Karen with open arms, and Josh with some harsh words.
Meanwhile, Quantrell is getting sicker and sicker. And acting weirder and weirder.
Karen suffers another acute attack of the screaming in her head, and has to leave the table for a breath of fresh air.
And when she does, she sees this singing telegram: a banshee. The only time these come around is if a family member is going to die.
While making their way through the forest, Quantrell and Sally are ambushed by a raging feverhead / Skin Walker hybrid (new threat alert!). Quantrell gives him hell, allowing Sally to escape.
Sally's got a gun (that she refuses to shoot), and she's running to the Alamo.
Martin, one of Boone's emissaries, takes Dana to a drained swimming pool on the compound, and shows her what life is like without the floaties.
Quantrell wanders over to the Alamo, and Sally tries to help him. But is he a lost cause?
Boone doesn't seem to think so - after a guilt trip from Sally - and so helps Sally get the guy inside.
The next morning, Boone organizes an all out assault on the oncoming feverheads slash Skin Walkers.
The fever and Spirit Walker within has gotten to Quantrell, and he turns against the one person who tried to help him most, breaking Sally's neck and killing her.
So Karen shoots him to hell.
It is a sad day for the Copeland family, as they reckon with the loss of one of their own.
