Come on!

Open the door!

Open the door!

Let us in!

Let us in!

Get up.

Give me another day.

One more day.

One more day isn't going

to make any difference.

Please! Just give me some more meds!

You had your meds, Hal.

You're getting worse.

Put me back in quarantine.

Just till tomorrow.

I'll get better.

You're not gonna get better, Hal.

I'll take the walk.

It's my choice.

Not today.

You can't do this.

It's my choice!

It's my job.

Make your peace.


He tested positive, Sam.

He has a choice.

Let him walk.

He'll just come back.

They always do.

We can't let him infect

the rest of the colony.


This isn't right.

This is survival!

It's nothing personal.

His time was up.

That's all, Sam.

In this place, we live

in fear of the common cold.

The last flu wiped out 20

people in less than a week.

So, now we've got rules.

You get sick, you go into quarantine.

If you don't get better,

you've got a choice.

A bullet or a long walk in the snow.

At least that's how it's supposed to work.

After the snow started, the lucky

ones found places like this.

A place where life could

exist underneath the ice.

When I got here, we were hundreds

living on top of each other.

Everyone just thankful they'd

made it out of the cities alive.

When the food ran out, most of

the people in the world died,

but not the people in this place

where seeds were stored underground,

kept safe for a better day.

Some people, they talk about a place,

a paradise with Blue skis and

birds as far as you can see.

Those are just stories.

Everybody knows that.

So, we hold on. Hibernating,

like the last dark age.

But it's not the cold

we need to worry about.

It's each other.


What's up, Sam?

I need to talk to you. Look, don't start.

Hal knew the rules.

His blood test was positive and

he wasn't getting any better.

We don't have the meds to keep

fighting this flu anymore.

And we can't risk another outbreak.

But why do we leave it to the one

guy who loves to pull the trigger?

Look, this colony started

with over 400 people.

And I have done too much surface time

with a shotgun in one hand

and a shovel in the other.

I've had my fill of blood in the snow.

You understand?

Now, Mason is just doing

what has to be done.

Yeah, but he's not doing it right.

He didn't give him a choice.

Hal wanted to walk, not take a bullet.

Well, right now, we have a bigger issue.

Calling colony five, this

is colony seven. Over.

Colony five, this is colony seven.

Come on, guys. Over.

What's up? Sos loop from colony five.



You sure it's five?

It's got to be.

It's their code.

Marcus always checks in.

When was the last time you

had contact with him?

About seven days.

They said they were gonna

be down for radio repairs.

And they've been dead air

until about an hour ago.


General meeting in the

main Hall in 30 minutes.

Okay. For who?

For everyone.

I want you to go see Viktor, Sam.

He's having a problem with the livestock.


All colonists report to the

main Hall in 30 minutes.

I repeat. All colonists please report

to the main Hall in 30 minutes.

Thank you.

You gonna try and save these rabbits, too?

Another stillborn litter.

Hmm. They need

protein, just like us.

How many are left?

Twelve in all.

But this here

is the only female.

You know you're screwed

when even the rabbits won't f***.

Let me see what

I can get from Kai.


What's going on?

What are you talking about?

What happened up there with Hal?

Sam come running to you?

What gives you the right to
