Curious about the antics of the undead and those that hate them which occured in Season One of Z Nation? Click through this gallery to get a quick recap.
The first season started amidst the zombie apocalypse, where prisoners were being experimented on in hopes of finding a zombie virus cure. One of them, Murphy, is bitten by zombies that raided the facility.
One year later and Murphy, guided by Lt. Mark Hammond (played by Harold Perrineau from Lost), come upon a survivor's camp in upstate NY. Hammond reveals to the small group there that Murphy survived being bit by zombies - thus he is the key to a cure.
Charles Garnett and Roberta Warren, two ex-military badasses in the group, agree to help Hammond transport Murphy to a lab in California that can harvest the cure.
Just as they are leaving, the camp is overrun by zombies. Three other survivors - Addy, her boyfriend Mack and an older dude named Doc - join the journey to bring Murphy to CA.
Along the way they encountered a teenager calling himself "10K" - a moniker he adopted because of his intention to kill 10,000 zombies.
The gang soon encountered another survivor, Cassandra, who they helped free from a bunch of psycho cannibals (#zombieapocalypseprobems).
Through all this, the group was aided by a military official calling himself "Citizen Z." The sole survivor of a Northern Canadian outpost, Citizen Z still had access to computer networks and communication devices that were still working. He'd intermittently connect with the survivors to help guide them to California.
As the group made its way cross country, Murphy started to discover that a) he was decaying more, like a zombie and b) he had weird mind control powers that let him control zombies.
When the gang upon a group of survivors that didn't allow men amongst them (led by Kelly McGillis), Addy decided to stay with them.
When the survivors reached Colorado, they encountered Dr. Kurian, a total psycho that actually started the zombie virus. He was VERY interested in Murphy.
Cassandra, who had been mortally wounded in an earlier scuffle, was about to die. Murphy did a quasi charitable thing and bit her, infecting her with the zombie virus.
Introducing zombie Cassandra! She was now super strong, kinda crazy and totally under Murphy's control.
The scuffle with Dr. Kurian happened at a military base, and the outfall was that a bunch of nukes got launched. Nuts, right?
The nukes made their way up to Citizen Z's base where he realized he was probably gonna kick the bucket.
The survivors, with very little time before a nuke dropped on their heads, tried to figure out how the hell they were going to not get blown up. Only Season Two holds the answer.
