Citizen Z, ladies and gentlemen, prognosticating on where zombies came from. It's helpful to ponder n' philosophize once in a while, no?
So, this is a church where zombies are revered as "the Resurrected" and devotees are up to something mysterious. But what?
While the team waits for Murphy to finish peeing during a pit stop, they discuss the distinct possibility of his one day turning into a full-blown Z. It's reasonable to assume that this transformation would make his personality even more disagreeable.
So, Charlie and Roberta. Is love in the air?
Charlie gets the team into Provincetown after they agree to check their weapons at the gate ... which seems a bit risky.
The team takes a tour with Charlie's old colleague, Major Wiilliams, who tells them the compound is entirely weapon-free. In a zombie apocalypse, that might not seem like the best approach, but so far it's worked.
What are these three up to? Probably nothing good, seeing as they're in the background n' all.
So, yes, it turns out that Charlie and Roberta are totally into one another. And now that they've found a private room, they can start getting down to business ... havin' SEX business!
Jacob, the preacher with the ghoulish zombie plan, arrives at the compound while his devoted servants do his bidding inside.
So the plan of the mysterious church's devotees is to gain entrance to the compound, kill themselves and become a Z. And thusly the zombie apocalypse comes to this weapons-free sanctuary.
Look, when you don't have access to weapons, you have to improvise. So Charlie and Roberta use books. Because knowledge is power!
Murphy continues to stumble around in a feverish daze as he meets a frightened woman in the bathroom. When zombies appear, he finds that he is safe from their attacks ... but she, alas, is not.
As zombies overrun the compound, the team is backed against the emergency exit. How horribly ironic.
Addy has another one of her crippling 'visions' until Mack brings her back with the power of love (and a stern voice).
Reverend Jacob captures the team and tells them they can either become zombies or help make more zombies as part of his insane "Resurrection" plan. Say what you will about the man, at least he's got passion.
Murphy steps onto the long, hard road to redemption when he tears open his shirt and proclaims himself as the zombie messiah. He's not really far off the mark, when you think about it.
Murphy proves his zombie deity status by sticking his hand in another zombie's mouth. Zombies don't chomp down on their own messiah, after all.
Things go bonkers when Jacob tries to shoot Murphy in the heart but Charlie takes the bullet for him.
A dying Charlie tells Roberta that he loves her. She wants to give him mercy but there's no time -- a quick escape from this place of madness is essential.
In one of the most poignant moments of the series so far, Roberta prepares to give Charlie mercy from a safe distance.
And so comes to an end the saga of Sergeant Charles Garnett. #mercy
