Christ, Jason,

stop the f***ing car.

They have a child.

- So do we!


So do we.

- Hi there, how are you?

Looks like it's going

to be a beautiful day.

Do you want to play?

I miss you, hope to see

you soon.

- One, two, three, four.

One, two, three, four.

- The most important thing

here is the saw-tooth leaf.

you need a

stick, a bait stick.


And you set them up, notches

Ann, are you listening?

This is important.

- Yes, I can't write as fast

as you can f***ing talk.


- Don't curse in front of her.

- Fine.

- Red berries.

Red leaves.

It's a bad thing.

Especially during the spring.

You're jerking the trigger.

- And I hit it!

- That's 'cause it's not moving.

It's a rabbit gun, you need

to hit head or heart to kill

so I need you to control

your breathing and lightly...

- squeeze, not pull, I know.

We should save our bullets.

- Well, they're of no use if

you don't know how to shoot.

- How many do we have?

- Enough.

Do it again.

- We can't survive on

a handful of berries.

- I know.

- Hi there, how are you?

Looks like it's going

to be a beautiful day.

- Okay.

- Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

Hi there, how are you?

- Damn it!


Jason, what happened?

- No, don't touch me!

Just get everything in the car.

- What happened?

- Just get in the f***ing car!

Her fever break?

- No.

Jason, what happened?

- There were a few boxes

of food.

- But they were there.

- Yeah.

They were there.

- But you've avoided them


Why did they attack this time?

I don't know.

I don't.

There was enough food to eat

there, there was enough bodies.

I thought they would've

moved on.

Everything was fine until

I cut myself breaking

into that house.

The blood started flowing

and screams grew

and they swarmed.

It was like they knew.

They knew I was bleeding.

They could sense it.

- What are they?

- I don't know.

But some part of them is human.

- Why is that?

- Because they can die.

- Come on, come on.

Come on.

Come on.


Please, please.


- Is he infected?

- No.

- Show me.

- Your name?

- Olivia.

You'll help him?

I can do that.

- Press here.

He'll be okay.

Grab an arm.

You coming from the south?

You and your father...

- stepdad.

Well, sort of.

Chris and my mom were,

you know, together, but

they never married.

They planned it for September,


- You can sleep in the car

if you want.

- No, it's fine.

I want to sleep near him.

We'll leave, when he's better,

I mean.

We'll leave you alone.

Why do you have two campsites?

- In case I lose one

or the other.

- Oh.

- Helps cover your scent,

throws them off.

You headed north?

- Yeah.

- You wanna hear it?

- That's what's up north?

- Mm-hmm.

- Do you know what

they're saying?

- No.

- So that's it.

- That's all there is.

- Chris?

- It's alright, Liv.

It's okay.

- She says you're heading north.

- Yeah, trying to at least.

We hear it's in check up there.

Who the f*** knows, right?

You have a pretty nice setup


Most people would kill

for this stuff.

You gotta tent.

Food, from what I can tell.


You gotta full tank?

- No.

Just a place to hide

from the rain.

- Ugh.

Thank you.

For what you did,

for both of us.

Not a lot of people

would do that nowadays.

We'll be gone in the morning.

- Okay.

- Get up, kiddo, let's go.

Let's get in the tent.

- Come on, get in!

- So, how long you been

out here?

- Since it started.

- Hmm.

Why you all the way out here

in the middle of nowhere?

- My husband grew up

in these woods.

He lived in a town

a mile or two west.

He brought us out here.

It's where he felt safest.

- Is that who taught you

how to be woods woman-y?

- He taught me what he could.

- What?

- Come on, Liv.

We kept hearing things,

you know.

How Philly went down in

a day but some backwater,

So Suzanne, Liv's mom,
