never infected.

They're being controlled.

What do you mean,


Controlled by who?

They are being controlled

by very dangerous people.

They have done all of

this, taken this whole

planet, to find me.

To find you?

W-w-wait, what do you

mean, taken the whole planet?

Well, they're not from

here, from Earth.

They're here now.

So, these dangerous

people, they're...

I don't know, aliens?

Oh okay, aliens.

This is going a bit

differently to how I

thought it would go.

And these aliens have...

come all this

way to find you?



And they're looking for

you because...?

Because I'm not from here


So you're an

alien too, then?

I've been hiding on Earth

for seven years with my

Attender - my mom here.

Because of a war that the

people who've come here started.

I'm not meeting her down

south, I'm meeting her at

our ship.

Your spaceship?

Of course, well, shit Cam,

it's kind of hard finding

one person out of

seven billion people.

It's a conundrum.

You said you'd believe me.

Well, I didn't know you

were gonna go say this.

And the blood?

The IO's taste the blood.

They can distinguish

between human blood and...

Okay, well, how do you think

those IO's didn't see us today?

It wasn't luck that they

walked straight past us.

I hid us.

I hid us from them.

You hid us?

If I stand still and


I can hide from them.

That's how they

haven't found me.

Oh, Cameron.

Do you remember I held

onto your arm and hid both

of us?

I hid us, David!

Okay, look -


Get back!

Oh shit...

Where are they?

Don't move.

[eerie music]

I know you're here.

[IO shouts]

[car door slams,

tires screech]

[IO screams]

[epic music swells]

You hid us from them?

And today, when they

walked by us, you hid us
