The team continues to journey further west, once again sans Mack and Addy. Murphy's starting to lose his skin ... is he losing his humanity as well?
When the team comes upon an old country club, they make contact with Citizen Z before running afoul of some well-to-do zombies.
Murphy takes the opportunity to golf a few rounds, wearing the club's jacket and killing a zombie or two with a golf ball in the process.
The team meets up with Brett, Henry and Janice. Think of them as the crooks from a Muppet movie: not too bright and kind of just evil for the sake of being evil.
Henry and Brett scheme a nefarious, mustache-twirling plot. One that will probably involve Murphy and his Zombie Messiah abilities.
Step One of the nefarious plan: Get everyone a little drunk and give them drugs to knock them out. (How did Roberta not see THAT coming?)
Step Two of the nefarious plan: Handcuff the team to a zombie and hit the road with Murphy, whom they're forcing to help knock over a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant.
The team escapes and finds a message from Citizen Z via traffic sign, pointing the way toward the kidnapped Murphy.
Murphy has a plan of his own ... and it involves spitting into Janice's canteen.
Here's a twist nobody saw coming: It turns out that drinking water containing half-zombie/half-human saliva allows said half-zombie/half-human to control that person's mind. Janice is now under Murphy's telepathic command.
Murphy also seems to be able to control Henry's mind after cutting Henry's hand, mixing Zombie Messiah blood with 'normal' blood (hey, it's a theory).
Murphy continues his little experiment by biting Brett. Can he now control his mind, too?
Running around outside Mesa Pharmaceuticals are zombies on speed! And you thought you'd seen it all with the zombie bear in the last episode.
Some of the zombies break into the Viagra, which surprisingly happens off-camera. The team is in awe of whatever undead sexual virtuosity is going down (or up, rather ... HA!).
Murphy is released into the Z-infested building to steal a ton o' oxycontin, which is the best kind of currency in the zombie apocalypse.
Murphy takes the opportunity to make contact with Citizen Z and ask about his search for Dr. Merch, the woman who made the zombie vaccine.
Janice meets a gruesome end at the hands (or teeth, rather) of her husband, who got turned into a Z during the last attempted raid on the pharmaceutical plant.
After Henry gets mauled by a bunch of jacked-up Z's, Murphy works his mind-controlling powers on Brett, forcing him to turn his gun on himself.
The team hits the road in a Mesa Pharmaceuticals van, though everyone's a little uneasy about Murphy's rather disturbing new power.
