Okay, Murphy seems to be calling the shots. But why is 10K so sullen about it? Everyone else seems to love being a Blend while 10K is near-catatonic. Hmm … maybe it's the name: '10K.' It's not only his name, it's his mission, his purpose. Does he need a new mission, a new purpose? Murphy whispers one to him … and starts calling him 'Thomas.' Ugh, the stress!
Meanwhile, Doc and Addy are being held at gunpoint by Ma and Pa Kettle, the caretakers of Murphy's zombie-human hybrid daughter, Lucy (who's totally adorable, by the way). Lucy appears to be about five years old, which is a bit older than she should, you know, actually be, but apparently being Murphy's daughter involves growing up fast.
Doc and Addy try to convince Lucy's foster parents that they know Lucy's real daddy and want to take her to him, though they're almost killed when they fail to provide the proper password that Murphy apparently designated for anyone who might some day come for his daughter (Doc thinks it's 'Smurf,' due to the blue skin that Lucy shares with her dad, but no cigar).
Unfortunately, playtime with Lucy involves a bunch of zombies dressed up like pirates, princesses, clowns, cowboys and knights in the backyard; she's safe thanks to her Z-controlling abilities, but such fun and games could prove to be fatal for Doc and Addy.
An awkward game of hide-and-seek takes a gruesome turn when Doc is forced to give mercy to a particularly feisty Raggedy Ann, which results in Lucy throwing a temper tantrum and running off into the surrounding woods.
But why did Lucy's mommy go away and leave her? Well, after Mommy fought off some zombies that wanted to hurt Lucy, she had to go rest … in a far-away land. (Hey, you can't tell a little kid her mother was given mercy, no matter how rapidly her maturing may be happening.)
Unfortunately, The Man shows up and spoils the fun as he stabs and binds Lucy's foster parents, which makes them think Doc and Addy have been lying to them all along. They break free of their bonds and go after Doc.
Geez. Okay, how best to track down The Man and get Lucy back? Doc and Addy decide to split up, with Doc running off to a nearby antenna to try to contact either Citizen Z or Roberta and Addy hopping on a motorbike and giving chase.
Meanwhile, Lucy isn't letting her kidnapping be a smooth one. She's in the car talking The Man's ear off, and when he tries to shut her up by tasering her (whoa!), she only squeals with delight, "Do it again!"
The Man takes extreme measures, covering Lucy's head with a hood and tying a rope around her neck … an experience Lucy seems to share psychically with her father Murphy, who suddenly feels hot and has difficulty breathing all the way out in Spokane.
The episode ends with 10K leaving the Museum of Progress, looking at a piece of paper on which his new mission from Murphy is written. We can just make out "Find Warren and bring her to me …," though the rest is ominously obscured.
