It's okay.

It's okay.

It's okay.

What do you want?

There's no food here.


It's just the two of you?

We had a son.

He didn't make it.

I'm sorry.

What you doing this far out

of the quarantine?

We heard it hadn't traveled

this far.

You heard wrong.

I'd like to run some tests.

What for?

It's nothing

to be afraid of.


Report to nearest

quarantine zone immediately.

It needs to be treated

as soon as it appears.

It is the only way

to keep it from spreading.

Subject clear.

I need you

to come with me.

I have food and water.

We can't travel

far in the dark.

Just you.

Trust me.

You will see her again.

Please, we only want to help.

You've helped enough.

You won't survive out here.

None of us will.

You stay away from us.




You think you're

any different?

They're trying to survive

just like you.

You want to see

your wife again?

What are you doing to me?

This didn't

have to happen.

You can stop it.

Find Dimitri tarkov.

He'll help.

His daughter's name

is Daisy.

But he wanted

to call her Violet.

Let me out of here!

Let me out!

You are the way out.

Are you gonna get him?

It's your turn.

Bullshit, it's yours.


Come on, come on.

It's okay, it's okay,

it's okay.

What's wrong?

You have a nightmare?

Me, too.

It's okay. It's okay.

...it's killing

livestock at an alarming rate.

I'm standing just 15 miles

south of Albany,

near a farm that lost

hundreds of cattle overnight,

shortly after the animals

developed sores

along their necks.

This month along,

more than 10,000 similar cases

have been reported

in the U.S.

In Albany, I'm Amber thomson

for krny news.

And over the

vveekend, it looks perfect.

A couple of showers

upstate New York,

otherwise it's just been

sunny, cool, and crisp.

Cleveland 62,

buffalo 61 on Saturday.

Sunday, another day

complete with sunshine.


a little bit warmer,

but still running somewhere

about 70 to 75...

These from your plants?

From the compound inside.

I'd like to take

a closer look.

There's nothing

worth looking at.

You have other priorities.

It's properties

are almost identical

to the anti-viral

Tyrell released last month.

If you'd be willing

just to have it profiled

to satisfy

my curiosity. Please.

That article you wrote

caused quite a stir

- at the department last week.

- Yeah, I didn't mean to...

vve're here to DC the research they

fund, not satisfy your curiosity.

Stay focused on the work

in front of you, all right?

I don't need you

getting sidetracked.

Sorry. Yeah.

Hey there.

I need to submit this

for profile.

Okay. I'll have

the results in a few days.


We really appreciate you guys

watching him so much.

Oh, please. Say no more.

We love him.

And it's really good

practice for us, you know?

- Mm-hmm.

- 0000.

Brad likes babysitting so much

he wants to open

his own little day-care.

Don't lie. Don't lie!

Oh, god no.

- So, how's the research going?

- Mm. Good.

You still, uh, tinkering

with that plant?

Hey, have you ever tried

to smoke it?

- Brad!

- What? It's a valid question.


- It wouldn't do much for ya.

- There ya go.

Well, you never know

until you try.

- Ol- | , mo you tell them?

- Un-uh.

We finally closed the deal

on the montauk house.

Ah, congratulations,

that's great.

Well, it took

long enough to close.

Vve're actually going up this vveekend.

You guys should come.
