WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Well. We're back. And it's two years later. And the last we saw our gang, they were about to be shot by a laser from a spaceship of some kind. And Roberta is in…is it Hell? She's being burned alive, it seems. But what's happening!?
Turns out, this wasn't real. She's actualy just woken up from a coma. Dressed as a fembot and somehow blonde now, she meets a surprisingly healthy-looking Murphy, who explains she's been in a coma for TWO YEARS and that everyone else is dead.
Also, it turns out that they're in Zona. A spooky Stepford paradise full of people wearing white. And where Murphy is a bit of a hero for bringing them his blood. The vaccine worked and everyone in Zona is free of the zombie virus. The real world, though, has fallen to pieces entirely.
But did you really think our team was dead? No way. Doc and 10K reunite in the woods, after both were out doing some zombie killing. Doc wants Red and 10K to come with him to NewMerica. It's a place in Canada where it's too cold for zombies.
You know who else is doing fine? Addy (with new and improved eye-patch!) and Lucy, who's all grown up. They're a pair of ass-kicking zombie fighters who are on the run from Zona, and also just a bit curious about NewMerica.
Back in Zona, Murphy takes Roberta to a dinner at the home of the Founder. He's the one who saw the whole zombie apocalypse coming, and got the richest people in the world to come stay on Zona. Also he tested the vaccine on himself and looks a little crazy.
New cast member! Henry Rollins is here as a soldier, Lt. Mueller, who believes human contact is very important and hugs people. He's in a refugee camp run by Sun Mei, keeping people around before they start the trek to NewMerica.
It turns out that the Founder and all of these fancy people are looking forward to an event called "The Reset." It's not entirely clear what "the Reset" is, but it's soon and it's meant to keep the rich people alive and wipe out the unvaccinated humans and the zombies.
When the founder reveals a chocolate volcano zombie cake and Roberta is asked to cut it, things go awry. She has a bit of a flashback to that hellscape she saw in the coma, and DESTROYS that cake. She's really having a hard time in Zona.
On her way back from the party with the founder, Roberta ditches Murphy and runs off. She dodges the Zona security, is fakey nice to people to avert them and escapes to a facility where she tries to leave Zona. But she's trapped after all, as they're surrounded by water. Woozy, she passes out.
Back in the world, nobody is totally sure if NewMerica is real, but they feel like they all need to believe in something. And…they discuss the death of 5k. He fell to his death and even though both Red and 10K think they might have seen him standing, they’re trying to move on.
