WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't reap this photo recap!
This week, Operation Bitemark roars into Milwaukee, Wisconsin to find a transmitter that might help them get in touch with Kaia at The Northern Lights Station. They find a good place where that might happen…
Channel 9 Action News. Some flashbacks tell us what happened to the news station as the zombie apocalypse started. Mainly, the story focuses on Carly McFadden, who gets her big break as a news anchor alongside a jerky news anchor guy.
Meanwhile, up in the Northern Lights Station, Citizen Z arrives! He's alive! He tells Kaia and Nana that his plane crashed and he made his way back to meet his son, Jay Z.
The team find some gasoline that can fire up a generator in the station, which hasn't been opened since the apocalypse started. The Action 9 News Team is all still here, running around the station as zombies.
Back in the past, the news team reels as the beginnings of the zombie apocalypse start to take hold outside the station at the scene of a plane crash. They don't know what they have on their hands…yet.
The news team decides to put Mike Renfro, the reporter who's been turned into a zombie, on the air. And it goes terribly as he attacks the news producers and turns everyone Z.
Including the anchor man, who later, in the present, attacks Murphy and Doc and 10K. They finally give him mercy.
Citizen Z finds out that the new Z's are smarter and faster and can't be killed. As he and Kaia investigate who's in the station, they come across a lot more Z's than they're used to.
They also find the man with the plan. Remember this dude? He was in Zona! And he seemed to be part of the whole plan that all those creepy Zona scientists were up to! Why is he here!?
Operation Bitemark make their way to the roof of the news station to find the transmitters so they can communicate with the Northern Lights Station. As per usual, they're persued by zombies.
In a flashback, Carly also makes her way up the stairs to the roof, while pursued by zombies.
Kaia finds the creepy Zona guy in the control room, transmitting information. He says it's time for him to go and while she tries to stop him, instead she runs off to help Citizen Z. When they figure out what he was looking for, it was stuff on disks called Black Rainbow.
As the team make their way to the roof, we learn the fate of Carly McFadden. She stayed on the roof reporting the news, only to attack the gang and end up dead, mercied by Roberta Warren.
When Citizen Z and Kaia in the Sky-a get in touch with Operation BiteMark, there's a lot of excitement to be in touch again. When they find out that Black Rainbow is on the file disks, Roberta is clear: they're on the right path. Zona is looking for the black rainbow she's seeing in her visions!
