Are you okay?

What do you think it's

gonna be like out there?

It'll get back to normal.

You'll see.


How long

were you infected?

Four years.

Did you have to be

potty-trained again?


Are you having

any violent impulses?


Any nightmares?


They're there to remind

you what you did.

The suffering you caused.

The nightmares mean there might

be something human left.

Makes you wonder about those

that don't have them, huh?


You'll report to me

every week.

Lateness will not

be tolerated.

Skipping work

will not be tolerated.

Anti-social behavior

will not be tolerated.

Basically you do

what I say

and your life will be..


Your sister-in-law,

Abigail Reynolds

has agreed

to take you in.

I didn't put

in a request.

Charlie Three Three Bravo,

this is..

Not everyone gets

to go home, Senan.

You should be grateful.

Bus ready to depart. Out.

Close the gate.

Delta Echo One Zero.

Bus passes,

checkpoint four. Over.

Charlie Three Three Bravo

this is Charlie

Two One Alpha.

- The last bus is loading.

- Get on the bus quickly.

- Ready the gate. Over.

- Single file.

Take your seats.

Charlie Three Three Alpha.

Transport departing

in two minutes. Out.

The cure was supposed to

be some sort of great hope

but things are

just gettin' worse.

That's not fair.

My daughter was released.

Whatever she did she can't

hurt anyone anymore.

People need to give

them a second chance.

We've given them

every chance.

They're not integrating. No

wonder crime's on the rise.

They're not

like us anymore.

They would if they were

given some choices

instead of being treated like

they were still infected.

Have you seen the news?

The violence?

The vandalism? There's

something wrong with them.

They're not human.


They don't, they don't

have a worry.

They're just scum.



Scumbags! Murderers!

Scum! Scum! Scum!

Welcome to the

accommodation center.


For those of

you going home

please make your way

to the left.

Which is my right.

Make your way

to my right.

Which is your left.

Left is home.


You're not human!

You're not human!


Don't tell her.

We need to look out for

each other out here, okay?


Keep it moving, people.

Thank you.

Through that door,


Don't stop. Keep going,

please. Through the door.



What are your thoughts on the

release of the Third Wave?

I think we can't

take any more.

I think the First Wave

and the Second Wave

have been

a fucking disaster.

No one wants them here.

Not much against them.

Just... just no craic.

- Yeah.

- You know what I mean?

They just mope around.

Bit of a hum

off them, to be honest.



Oh, shit!

My uncle came back

in the First Wave.

And how is he now?

He killed himself

last year.

UN's pullin' out. Who the

f*ck is gonna stay put?

They're out there,

right now.

Infected, Cured,

they're all the same.

Wipe the fuckin' lot of them

out, that's what I say.

The government now face

a very difficult dilemma

of what to do with

the 25% of infected

who remain resistant

to the cure.

I mean, what they did..

I mean..

How do you get over that?



Hop on.

Ready, activate. Go!


Is this it? Is this

all your homework?
