They're late.


we're coming up behind.

Keep 'em busy.

Hang on!

Call it in!

Transport zero-one-niner,

we got trouble

on the rail line.

Mile 23, send backup!

Send backup!

Roger that. On our way.

This is crazy, Thomas!


Hang on.

Get me closer!

Come on, Vince!




Let's go!

Hey! Berg!


be advised.

You've taken on boarders

at the rear.

We're engaging the truck now.

Hey, Brenda, you got company!

Go, go, go!

Open fire.

Watch out!

Holy sh*t!

Thomas, you're on your own.

Don't die.

Good luck!

We gotta move. Come on!

Go, go! You heard him!

Give me the bag!


Get down! Get down!


We're set! Cover your ass!

Go, go, go!

Take cover!

Come on!

Let's go! Let's go!

We lost the rear five.

Stop the train!


All right, come on,

let's go. Come on!


Minho, can you hear me?

This one. This one!

Oh, sh*t!

It's gonna be close.


Squirrelly bastard.

We got 'em! We got 'em!

Step out of the vehicle

with your hands up.

Let's go, boys.

Stop right there. Don't move.

I said freeze, a**hole!

Whatever you say, hermano.

Hold him back!

Y'all don't wanna do that now.

Hey, Fry.

Good to see you guys.

Go on, back up.



Newt, how you doing?

Don't rush me.


Newt, get up here.

Almost there.

Newt, go!

- Where the hell are they?

- I don't know!

Go! There's too many of them!

All right, boys, we're here!

Keep moving!

- Come on!

- Lower!

Cover me!

Go, go!

All right, we're clear!

Okay, we're going up.

Vince, get up here!

Now, Vince!

- Yeah!

- Whoo!

We're going home, baby!


All right, guys!

Good job. Whoo!



Hey, you guys okay?

Yeah, we're fine.


There you are. Oh, God!

It's okay. You guys are safe.

All right? Just hang on.

I need

the bolt cutters.

Are you okay?

I'm fine. How are you?

He's not here.

I'll take one.

Come on down.

You're safe here.

Need medical attention,

move to your left.

I need first aid.

Right this way, guys.

Come on down here.

Come on in, guys!

Okay, guys, over here!

All right, listen up.

I know you've all

been through hell.

I wish I could say

our troubles are over.

But we're not

through this yet.

WICKED's still out there.

They're not giving up.

'Cause you got

something they want.

They took you

because you're immune

to a plague that's wiping

out the human race.

And they think you're worth

sacrificing to find a cure.

Well, I don't.

So in two days,

when we get this tub

of rust seaworthy,

we're getting

the hell outta here.

We're gonna go to a place

where WICKED

will never find you.

A place you can start over.

A place you can call home.

- Are you with me?

- t

Come on.

Come on

up here. Let's get to work.

Come on,

I need some volunteers.

Let's go.

Let's get to work.

Let's get these crates

on the boat.

We got two days

before we leave.

All right.

Give me a hand up here.

May I help you?

It looks good.

How you feeling?


I was just asking.

I know, I know,

you're just asking.

Everybody's just asking.

Don't worry.

When I Crank out,

you'll be the first

to know, okay?

Here, drink this.

Took you guys

long enough to rescue us.

It's good to see

you, too, bud.

So what happened?

I fought back.

Tried to, anyway.

You're lucky

you found us at all.

They had us

on the move a lot.

It felt like something

big was happening.

Any idea where

they were heading?

All I know is

they kept talking

about a city.

I didn't think

there were any cities left.

That's because

there aren't.

Not still standing, anyway.

Okay, wait. What about Minho?

Why wasn't he on the train?

I'm sorry, Thomas.

He was.

They got 40,

maybe 50 kids.

We're still compiling

an official count,

but the pilot

got a good look.

He thinks it was them.

Of course it was them.

What about the Berg?

We tracked it a few miles.

But someone must have

known about the locator.

They're totally off the grid.

Move it, Immunes.



We're searching the area,

but they're probably

long gone by now.

Oh, no, they're not

going anywhere.

He didn't get

what he really wanted.

There, that's it.

It's a few hundred miles.

Based on the railways,

everything that Aris

told us,

that's gotta be

where they're headed.

That's where

they're taking Minho.

We take everyone

who can fight.

Follow the roads

where we can.

We can make it back

within a week.

A week?

It took us six months

to get here.

We got over

100 kids here now.

We can't just hang out

here forever

after what we

just pulled.

You wanna wander off

to some random point

on the map.

You don't even know

what's there.

I do.

It's been a few years,

but I've been there.

The Last City.

That's what WICKED called it.

It was their whole

base of operations.

If that city

is still standing,

that's the last place

you wanna go, hermano.

That's the lion's den.

It's nothing we haven't

done before.

Yeah, with months

of planning,

and reliable information,

the element of surprise,

none of which we have now.

Vince, I've

thought this through.

Would you just

hear me out?

The last time we

went off half-cocked...

I lost everything.

You remember that?

Look, I know

it's Minho. All right?

But you can't ask me

to put those kids

on the line for one man.

I won't do it.

Searching the grid now.

A is completed.

Scanning B-sector now.
