What I Watched Today
(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)
Franco brings Aiden to the hospital. Elizabeth thanks him for picking Aiden up. The nurse says he wasn’t feeling well. Aiden can’t tell her what’s going on, so she says they’ll get him checked out.
Cameron visits Josslyn. She asks if he’s seen Oscar. He says, no, and it’s lucky the homeroom teacher doesn’t take attendance or even notice who’s there; he’s skipped out twice today for her. She says he said he’d help her get Oscar back, and she’s figured out way.
Drew tells Oscar to chill. Oscar says he’s sick of waiting, literally. Drew thinks he should talk to his mother. When Kim asks, what about? Oscar says he quit. He’s not going back to school. What’s the point? He doesn’t want to waste the time he has left.
Griff and Kiki are still kissing at the gym.
Maxie tells Peter that they work in the same building. He doesn’t need to avoid her. He says he’s not; he has to get back to work. She asks if he doesn’t have a cell phone, and insists he is avoiding her. He says he’s been busy with the reboot of The Invader, but she knows Lulu told him to stay away. She gets that, but doesn’t get why he agreed.
Danny asks if Jason loves mommy. Jason says he loves mommy very much. Sam overhears.
Kiki tells Griff that she was going to skip boxing and go to yoga. He asks if it’s him she’s running from, but she says she’s not running. She told him that she wanted to remain friend, but in the back of her mind, she knew what it was like to be with him, and wanted it again. Griff says he was committed to make a reconciliation with Ava, but his heart wasn’t in it. He couldn’t stop thinking about her. Kiki wonders what that means they should do.
Oscar asks if Kim wouldn’t mind him skydiving, and Drew tells her it’s sarcasm. Oscar is clearly his kid. Oscar says he doesn’t want to go, and why should he? Kim says, normalcy of life, his friends are there, and he’s always liked academics. He says that’s when he thought he’d be going to college. Why not use the time to read whatever he wants? Sleep late, and go hiking while he still can. He’s not a doctor, but he can do research online. The tumor he has, is as bad as it gets. She tells him that he can’t believe everything he reads, and everyone is unique. If he wants to take it day by day, fine, but he can’t lose hope. The trial is promising. He says, when it doesn’t kill the patient.
Cameron sees a bunch of balloons, and says, balloons again? Josslyn says they’re significant; symbolic. She wants to remind Oscar of their anniversary. Cameron says, when Oscar didn’t show up? Josslyn says he was in the hospital. It turned out fine; he recovered. She’s not convinced the break-up is real.
Peter tells Maxie that she’s still vulnerable and hurting, and Lulu pointed out that his presence in her life will make it worse. Maxie says she can speak for herself. He tells her Lulu was just being a good friend, and is happy they’ve reconnected; don’t blame her. Maxie says she knows Lulu meant well. She doesn’t like Lulu speaking for her though, and doesn’t know why he went along with it. Being stuck in the elevator when he had the panic attack was a bonding experience. He tells her that she’s one of the only friends he’s ever had, and he messed it up. If keeping his distance helps her, he’ll accept it. She says, what if she doesn’t want that?
Danny asks Jason if mommy loves him, but Jason says he’ll have to ask mommy. Sam comes back with snacks, and tells Danny that Monica is coming to pick him up. Danny asks if he’s staying overnight, and Sam says he is. He says there’s a problem. His castle isn’t finished; the pieces got mixed up. Jason says he can help Danny put it together, and Danny adds, when he’s at grandma’s house. I laugh. Slick kid. Sam says Jason will be sorry he said that.
Maxie tells Peter that she’s not saying Lulu is wrong, but she and Lulu have been through a lot together, and not all of it pleasant. Maybe it’s Nathan’s influence, but she finds it harder to hold on to anger than to forgive. He asks if she means Lulu or him. She says she forgave Lulu. Her and Peter’s elevator experience was awkward, but she wanted to help him; from one human to another.
Elizabeth tells Aiden that his temperature is normal, and asks how his tummy is. He says, not so great. Franco says he was feeling good when they indulged in mud pie mayhem. Elizabeth asks if something happened at school. Aiden says, lunch was gross, and Franco says, no surprise. Elizabeth tells Aiden to rest, and asks Franco to get a ginger ale for him.
Josslyn tells Cameron that she’s staging an anniversary do-over. She’s decorating the bench again, but this time he’ll see it done right. Cameron thinks it’s over-the-top, but she says that’s because he doesn’t care about things like that. She could decorate ten benches, and he wouldn’t notice; Oscar would. She knows he still cares about her, but she doesn’t know what’s going on. Since he’s not responding to her texts, Cameron can get him there. Cameron asks, how? and she tells him, figure it out. When he gets there, she wants Cameron to take off. She wants to remind Oscar of how it felt. Like when he was at the hospital, and he showed her the video he made. Feelings don’t go away. She tells Cameron that if he meant it when he said he’d help, text Oscar to meet him in the park.
Oscar asks Kim if she was planning on telling him how the trial killed someone. Drew says they were advised of the risks. Kim says it’s important to get him enrolled, and ensure a spot. Oscar says she’s grabbing at the trail like a life preserver. Kim says despite the trial’s setback, it’s promising. No treatment works for everyone, but give it a chance to work for him. Oscar snarks that he’s so lucky. Drew says medical treatment is just part of it. He needs to stay positive; his mindset makes a difference. Kim says, the mind is a powerful weapon. Being positive can only help. Oscar asks if she doesn’t think he wants to hope. She lied for two years because she already knew he was going to die.
Sam and Jason try to put the castle together. Sam says it has a million pieces that have to be put in the exact right order. You have to be patient and meticulous, and he’s both. She tells him the problem is, Danny opened all the packages, but she has no idea where the directions are. Jason says they’d better get to work.
Griff tells Kiki, whatever’s next is up to them. She says, two cowards, dancing around their feelings. He must have a lot of faith in them. He says he does. There’s no stopping how far it goes. She says too bad they can’t go to a beach, and reenact the scene in From Here to Eternity. Griff has no clue about the film, and she explains the scene (google it if you don’t know either), and he asks if they had an interfering mother. Kiki says, no; only the start of World War III. He says they got off easy. Kiki says Ava has done what she can to hurt them. They might as well do what they want. Griff agrees, and wonders why they’re still talking. They kiss.
Peter tells Maxie that she was compassionate, and she says, you don’t just watch someone gasp for breath and scream. He says he did not scream, did he? She says when she found out he was Faison’s son, and he’d been lying about who he was, she was incredibly angry and hurt. The more time passed, she thought less about the lies, and more about how much he’d supported her. He helped her give birth. What’s more important than that? Peter says it’s the most significant thing he’s ever done. She says she thought about how many people forgave her, and it’s the only way to pay it forward.
Cameron tells Josslyn, if Oscar doesn’t show, she’ll feel worse. She says she’ll feel worse if she doesn’t try. Her dad taught her that. You only really fail if you give into fear. You quit before start. Cameron asks what about her pride and dignity. She asks if he’s kidding. Is he going to help or not? Text Oscar.
Oscar tells Kim that he spent all night looking for a reason to hope. He only found reasons not to. Kim asks if he saw where it helped. Tumors shrunk. He says, that’s not a cure. Drew says if it can extend his life, he has a chance for a cure. Oscar says he doesn’t want to sit around pumped up with medicine. If the treatment doesn’t work, it could kill him faster.
Sam tells Jason she’ll look for the directions. Jason says they can figure it out. She says he’s dealing with the easy part now. It gets more difficult. He says they have to solve their own puzzle and mystery; her specialty she puts together litt person figured it out Jason puts them in a cube and say don
Kiki tells Griff that they’ll be asked to leave if they keep it up, and suggest they go back to her place. He wants to, but he also wants to make sure they’re doing this for the right reason; not just uncontained lust. Kiki asks what’s wrong with that, and he says he doesn’t want regrets. They’re better than that. He wants to get know each other, without the specter of Ava. Create something they can make last. She thinks it sounds good, and asks what he has in mind.
Peter says, not that Maxie has no right to her anger, but it’s a heavy burden. He’s glad she’s letting it go, so she can get back to being her, unencumbered. James deserves it. Maxie says she looks at his little face, and she doesn’t want to hold on to anything ugly. She wants only good for him. Peter says James is part of his family, and hopes she can find it in her heart to let him visit. Maxie thinks James should know uncle, and it’s a good place for them start. He says, something to look forward to besides murder and mayhem. He says he’s been taking the stairs. She’s glad he’s seen a doctor, and asks if it was PTSD from being held captive, or something else entirely.
Sam tells Jason he clearly has a gift. He says it wasn’t too hard, and she tells him not to rub it in. With the last one, she had the directions, and followed them, and still couldn’t get it to look like the one on the box. Danny didn’t care though, and said hers was cooler than the one on the box. And he meant it. Jason says she’s good at improvising, and they so at each other.
Oscar says Kim got to decide how he lived up to now. Now it’s his turn. Kim tells him not to make decisions based on anger. In the span of 24-hours, he’s quit school and broken up with Josslyn. Drew asks, why? and Oscar says, so many girls, so little time. Drew says, that’s not why.
Josslyn says Oscar didn’t text back, even though he didn’t know it was her. Cameron asks if she sees why it’s a bad idea. She asks what the alternative is, and he says, move on. She says, after a year, and finding Oscar’s long lost father together? She was tough on Oscar when her mom was in Ferncliff, and he never gave up on her. She can’t give up on him. Cameron asks if when she was pushing him away, if she ever actually told him to go away. Oscar did. He made it clear he doesn’t want to be with her. She says you can’t just go from love to breaking up for no reason. Cameron says, there is a reason.
Kim says Oscar is pushing people away that care. He thinks he can spare Josslyn from her boyfriend being sick. Oscar says he doesn’t want her waiting, every minute terrified he’s going to die. Putting every minute into saving him. She should be enjoying herself, not looking up holistic remedies and making kale smoothies. She’s happy now, and he wants her to stay that way. Drew says Oscar thinks he’s doing Josslyn a favor, but he couldn’t be more wrong.
Maxie doesn’t want to pry. Peter says since she talked him down, she has the right to know what caused it. Obrecht was a part of it. Being tied down for a week messed with his head, but some of it was from when he was a kid. Maxie can’t imagine what it was like. Peter says he thought he’d pass out; it’s happened before. It’s ancient history, and it should have been over it. Maxie says she can’t help if he won’t talk about it. He says he was seven. He didn’t know how to swim, and his father decided to take matters into his own hands. He threw Peter into the deep end of the pool. It was sink or swim, and he sank. When he came to, he was on the concrete. Triggers bring him underwater again, and he can’t breathe. Maxie says she’s sorry, and he says, don’t be; he survived. She says, no thanks to his father. What Faison did to him should never have happened.
Elizabeth tells Franco that she knows when Jake and Cameron are faking being sick, but even if Aiden knew how, what would be his motive? Hiding from a test? He does well in school. She wonders if she’s worried about nothing. I’m thinking Aiden has Princess Calenda-itis.
Kim says Josslyn is crazy about Oscar, and he feels the same way. Eventually, she’s going to find out. Oscar says he’ll be gone by then. Drew says he’s not thinking it through. He thinks he’s sparing her in some way, but think of how she’ll feel when she finds out, and knows he didn’t want to tell her. He didn’t trust her enough to be there, or worse, didn’t want her help. Kim tells him not to do this to himself. Make things right with Josslyn. Give himself that comfort. He leaves, and Kim wonders if she got through.
Josslyn says Cameron has to tell her if he knows. Cameron says, all he knows is, Oscar is an idiot. She’s put himself first, and dumped her without even trying to explain. Josslyn says it’s like he’s trying to make her hate him. Cameron asks if it’s working, but Josslyn says, no. She gets angry with Cameron, and tells him, just go, but then tells him to wait. She doesn’t agree with everything he said, but she’s sorry for going off on him. He accepts her apology, and says he’s sorry she’s going through this. She says if Oscar texts back, let her know.
In the hallway at the hospital, Oscar sees the message asking him to meet Cameron in the park. There’s a second one says he needs to see Oscar now. 911.
Jason is finished, and says, it’s not really a castle. No, it’s not. It looks more like an apartment building. Sam says, to Danny it is. He says it’s a collaboration. Sam thinks Danny will wreck it in ten minutes tops. Jason says they’ll put it back together as many times as Danny wants. He doesn’t mind. He likes working with her.
Griff asks if Kiki remembers the film festival, and she says she’s the one who invited him. She says it will make them feel cosmopolitan, but if it gets boring, they can just make out. He says, it’s a date.
Aiden is feeling better, and Elizabeth says she’ll get his homework. He says he doesn’t need it, since he might be sick tomorrow.
Cameron sees Oscar at the hospital. Oscar says he was on his way out, but had to wait. Cameron says he was just with Josslyn, and she’s suspicious that Oscar broke up with her for no reason. He can’t keep this up. Oscar says he promised he wouldn’t tell, but Cameron says he didn’t promise anything. Oscar told him to keep his mouth shut, but he’s not lying. Oscar has to tell her the truth.
Josslyn looks at pictures of her and Oscar on MyFace. She sends him a message, asking what’s going on, but she’s blocked. Then his status changes to single. Um… I think if she was blocked she wouldn’t be seeing a status update, but okay. She wonders what he’s doing, and says, it’s all wrong.
Cameron asks what Oscar just did. He says he blocked Josslyn, and updated his status to single. He has to make her stop hoping. It will be easier to hate him when he goes. Cameron asks if he’s trying to hurt her.
Drew tells Kim that Oscar is pissed, and he can’t blame him. Kim knows that, and knows he feels under attack. He’s afraid. He’s good and smart, and will come to his senses, and realize the trial is his best chance. It is, isn’t it? Drew hopes so.
Maxie tells Peter that she has to confess. Since they got stuck, she hasn’t ridden the elevator. He asks if she didn’t want to get trapped with an awful stranger. She says, what if they ride together. Peter says, no, but she says she’ll trust him if he trusts her. She gets in the elevator, and he follows. She takes his hand.
Jason asks if Sam really thinks it will only last ten minutes. She says, maybe one hour tops. He tells her to let him know when she wants to rebuild. She asks if he’s sure. If one piece gets lost, it could be hours. He says they’ll improvise; she’s good at that. She thanks him for staying, and he says, any time. She kisses his cheek, and they move in for a real kiss.
On Monday, Jordan says they’re dropping the investigation, Mike tells Sonny about the gun, and Jason and Sam get busy.
Last we left, Roberta had taken off in a drone, and it crashed.
The drone crash lands. It opens, and Roberta gets out. she sees the black rainbow in the sky, and realizes she’s wounded. She slowly makes her way across a field. She takes the tarp from some covered bodies to shield herself from the sun. She sees a farmhouse, but keels over before she gets there.
A farmer stands over her, and blurs out. A semi-conscious Roberta is on a pseudo surgical table. A man says he thought he lost her.
She wakes in a bedroom. She walks downstairs. Her clothing has been changed to either a really nice nightgown, or an understated formal gown. She sees pictures of the man and his family. The man is making breakfast. She peeks in on him. He asks if she’s hungry, and starts setting the table. She jumps when he moves toward her, and he tells her that he keeps the door unlocked. She asks where she is, and he says his farm. He found her on the ridge. He tells her that she’s a pretty thing, and he used to be a medic. He says she’s right to be careful. Roberta finds out she’s been there two weeks. He says she’s safe there, but Roberta says she’s not safe anywhere. She asks if he’s the only one, and he says, for some time now. Sarah and Claudette are gone. He’s Cooper. Roberta says she’s sorry, and he says she must be starved. Hopefully the food has minimal radiation, grown by him. He asks what she was doing out by herself. She wonders how he knows she’s by herself, and he tells her that he can look out for five miles; no one is there. She tells Cooper that she crashed her car; that’s how she got injured, and it’s totaled. Well, that’s kind of the truth. He tells her that she bled a lot, and serves her some spinach to help with blood loss. She thanks him for sewing her up, and he asks where she was headed. She says, Newmerica, and he says it’s been a while since he heard that. A lot of people used to come through, but not since the black rain. As far as he can tell, they might be the only ones left alive.
A woman runs from three zombies, but hits a cliff. Doc is… a zombie? She draws her gun to shoot herself, and Doc tells her don’t, apparently just pretending. Or rather, trying to fit in. Doc kills two real two zombies, and grabs her. They run into the woods, and Doc dispatches zombies with a hammer. He meets up with 10k, Sergeant Lilley, and Murphy. 10K tells Doc it’s his best makeup yet. Doc says, tell the artiste. Say my name; say my name. Doc says, it better come off. A few zombies show up, and mini Operation Bitemark takes care of them. Murphy asks if one of the zombies just said no. He pokes it, and says it’s not a living human; that’s good? Doc says, it’s getting harder to tell. The group they’ve been leading comes out and joins them.
Doc asks if everybody is okay, and if they can get food and water for the newcomer. Murphy complains about having another mouth to feed. Doc says, Newmerica, here we come.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch farm, Cooper says Roberta is hurting his feelings, and asks if she doesn’t like his cooking. Roberta says it’s great, but she just isn’t hungry. He says she’s suffered lot of trauma. It might take a while to feel like her old self. She’s not sure what that means. Al Jarreau’s Nothing At All is playing, and Roberta says she likes his musical taste. He says music saved his ass; it gets quiet out there. She asks how long it’s been since he was alone, and he says, over a year; how about her? She traveled alone the whole way? Even zombies aren’t safe. She says she has some friends who are probably looking for her. He says, if they’re still alive.
Roberta looks out over the farm. Nothing is moving, so she goes outside, grabbing a shovel and gloves. She watches Cooper working, and joins him in creating rows for the crops. They work quietly side by side
Murphy tells Doc, Granny don’t look so good. He could swear she coughed up a hairball. Doc is worried she won’t make it, and the others aren’t too much better. Murphy says if they weren’t talking, he’d swear they were Z’s. Just die already. Doc says it’s been like this ever since the black rain. Murphy asks why it’s always their fault, and Doc says because they do stupid sh*t. Once the others are safe in Newmerica, they’ll be someone else’s problem. Murphy wants to track down Roberta, and Doc says they don’t know if she’s alive. Murphy says, she is. They have a special bond. They’ve shared bodily fluids. Doc says, ew-ew! and tells Murphy that he’s not leaving them. Murphy says he might.
Roberta sees a zombie coming up the road. She tells Cooper to be careful. He moves to shoot it, and it holds its hands up in a defensive way. He says, that was strange; has she ever seen that? Roberta says, she’s afraid. Cooper asks, of what? Dying? Roberta whacks her with a hoe, but she keeps going. Cooper says, have mercy, and shoots her.
Roberta serves Cooper dinner, saying, take note; it’s a rare sight. He says, duly noted. He makes a toast – may you have all you want, and want all you have. They dance. They kiss. Fade to black.
A sign says, Newmerica 452 miles – Apocalypse 3 miles. Murphy tells Doc this is where he gets off. Doc asks if he’s sure, and Murphy says if it was the other way around, Roberta would be looking for him. Doc guesses this is goodbye. Murphy tells him, like everything else in the apocalypse, it’s temporary. They’ll meet up. Doc says, take care of your red self, and Murphy says, people love him; he’s adorable. Murphy puts on his shades, and starts walking.
Roberta watches Cooper sleeping. She looks out the window, and there’s nothing moving. Cooper joins her, and tells her that she’s beautiful. She asks if he believes in fate, and he says he does now. She says it’s been a long time since someone’s arms were around her who wasn’t trying to kill her. He says it looks like the universe has given them a second chance. He doesn’t want to lose it. Neither does she.
Driving now, Doc tells the others shouldn’t be long now; they’ll be in Newmerica. Assuming it’s really there. One of the group says now that the coughed up blood, they don’t feel as bad. Another says, it’s the worst cold ever. Lilley says, Granny is missing. Doc calls for Mrs. Magilicutty, and 10K says, found her! and she’s eating some brains out of a head. Her son tells her, put that down, but she says she needs it bad. 10K doesn’t think she should be doing that. Her son takes the head from her, saying, let’s leave this here, and leads her away. She wonders what’s happening to her. She doesn’t know why she did that.
Roberta tells Cooper that he seems worried, and he says he is. He tilled enough food for one, if he’s lucky. She says they can till more, but he says they can’t do by hand. They need a tractor. She asks if there’s one nearby, and he says, ten miles. She asks if he’s got a car, but he doesn’t. She says it they double-time it, they can get there in a couple of hours on foot. If they’re lucky, they’ll ride back. He says it could be dangerous; infested with zombies. Roberta says, let’s hustle. He likes it.
Murphy sees zombies who have been in a fender bender. He says he’s looking for friend. One of the zombie’s brains are exposed, and Murphy eats a piece. He can see the drone crashing, and looks in that direction. He thanks the zombie for his help.
Cooper tells Roberta there used to be a lot working there; keep her eyes open. They don’t see anything, and Roberta thinks maybe they wandered off. He hopes the tractor starts, and she tells him that she can hotwire a space shuttle. He tells her, do it quietly. They don’t want to attract unwanted guests. He tells her to get it started, and he’ll hit the tiller. He sees zombies scrabbling underneath, and unhooks it. Half-zombies scramble after him, and one gets ahold of him. Roberta aims, but a full zombie grabs her from behind. Cooper throws off the zombie, shoots it, and shoots the one who has Roberta. Another comes up behind Cooper, and Roberta gets that one. A whole flock of them move in, and they knock off a few, and climb into the tractor. Cooper tells her to start the engine, and the zombies get shredded by the tiller. Roberta and Cooper smile at each other as they drive away. I’m smiling too. After nearly having a heart attack.
Murphy reaches the drone, and a bird flies out, nearly giving him a heart attack. He calls for Roberta, and sits on the drone, yelling, yee-ha! like he’s in a rodeo. He finally says, you find me; I’m right here. It’s starting to get dark and the cheese Murphy stands alone. A very deteriorated zombie toddles up. Murphy says he’s looking for a woman friend of his, grabs the zombie, and tells it. zombie focus up. Did it see the woman? Its jaw falls off, and Murphy says, sh*t. The zombie tries to talk. He eats a little of its brains, asking if it saw her. Then he asks why it didn’t say so in the first place. Which way did she go? Is it sure? He says, thanks buddy. Lightening starts to flash.
Doc tells 10K he smells sweet, fresh air. They must be close, Lilley rides with the others in the bed of the truck. One of them asks, are we there yet? and she says, a little father. Doc and 10K see something. 10K asks if that’s it. Doc says it’s smaller than he expected. Two people sit in front of a makeshift shack, covered in campaign posters and surrounded by junked cars and other things that should be in a dump. Doc tells the others stay put while they check it out.
A guy says, greetings stranger. Doc asks if it’s Newmerica, and he says, not yet; they ain’t voted. 10K asks, who is we? and he says, anyone still alive and talking. Doc asks what they’re voting for, and he says their lives. He says it looks like they’ve been on the road a while, and Doc says, the whole damn apocalypse. Granny tries to grab one of the others, and Doc and 10K separate them. There’s a melee with a few of the group, and one of the guys says, somebody didn’t get biscuits. A Rocker Chick stops him from shooting Granny. She takes a cookie out of her bag, and feeds to Granny, who settles down. She tells them they can let Granny go now. Granny hugs her, and Rocker Chick asks how long she’s been dead. Doc says they just thought she was sick; she’s talking. Rocker Chick says, no; she’s dead, and so are those two. They’re talkers. Since the black rain, people don’t just die and turn. Their bodies are dead, but their souls are conscious. They don’t just walk now; they talk. Cool! I’m very psyched for this.
Roberta splits logs. She opens the door to one of the barns, and sees a car inside. She looks through the window, and there’s a zombie inside. Cooper comes up behind her. She sidles past him, and runs out. Yeah, I think I know what’s coming. The zombie bangs on the car window.
Roberta asks if it’s Cooper’s wife and daughter in there. He says before the black rain, things got bad. His daughter, Claudette, got sick, and his wife couldn’t stand to see her suffer. He didn’t know how much Sarah was suffering too. When he was off looking for medicine, Sarah put their daughter in the car, drove into the barn, and left the engine on. That’s the way he found them when he got home. Roberta asks, why? Why are they still in there? Why hasn’t he mercied them? He says he wanted to think he’d find a cure. They were beautiful and conscious, and he couldn’t. He can’t. Roberta drops the ax in her hand, and says let her do this for him. She takes his gun from the holster, and says let her do it for them. He takes out his other gun, and goes into the barn. Roberta waits outside. We hear two gunshots.
Rocker Chick hands out cookies, saying there’s plenty for everyone. 10K is about to put one in his mouth, and she says he probably doesn’t want to eat one, unless he’s dead. Doc asks what’s in them. Rocker Chick says, nobody knows for sure, and nobody wants to know. Rumor has it, there are trace amounts of brains in them. It keeps the zombies happy, but eat enough of them, you’ll be one. Doc asks Granny how they taste, and she says, metallic; needs a little more sugar. Doc asks Rocker Chick if she’s the woman on the posters, and she says, everyone keeps saying that. She introduces herself as George, and introduces Lieutenant Dante; he’s dead. Doc says they’ve traveled a long way to get to Newmerica. Tell him this ain’t it. George says it doesn’t exist – yet. It’s just an idea. There are just outposts, trying to make it on their own, but they can’t. They’re voting on a constitution to make it a new nation. Doc asks if you have to be a citizen to vote, and George says anyone can become one. Lt. Dante says, you don’t even have to be alive. Doc is ready to sign up. She says the biggest outpost, Altura, is up the road; she has friends there. She says, anyone else want to be part of something great? Granny says, she can vote, even though she’s dead? Everyone is in. George tells them, united we live; divided we turn. Doc says she is the woman on the poster, and George smiles, saying she’ll show them the way.
Cooper lights a funeral pyre. The bodies burn. Cooper puts his arm around Roberta, and they walk away from the fire.
Murphy thanks Bob for his service. He thinks he has it from here. He sees the smoke from the cremation in the distance.
Next time, a biscuit a day keeps the zombies at bay, and trace amounts of brains are an acquired taste. I’m loving it so far.
👴 Good News for Mike…
If Max Gail doesn’t get the Daytime Emmy, there is no justice in this world. But there is this.
👶 MJ Got Her Wish…
I couldn’t be happier for her. I wonder if they’ll name the baby Shams.
