Nick wakes up in the medical center next to someone coughing up blood. When he heads outside the it's early in the morning but the area seems strangely deserted as though no one lives there. He wonders around and makes his way to a little girl, who is crying about her father. It's then he sees a group of people gathered by the wall.
A man hands over his knife to Luciana as Alejandro watches. The community starts to chant, as the man exits the community through a school bus and faces a horde of zombies. Nick picks up the little girl and turns her away so she won't have to see the man get devoured. A look of disgust crosses Nick's face.
Strand drives a truck and Madison bangs on the side indicating that he needs to stop. Madison hops off the truck and is joined by Alicia and Strand. It seems that they have spent the last two days looking for Nick. Alicia suggests that it's time for them to head back to the Abigail
. Travis argues that there's water on the boat and points out that the truck is running on fumes. Finally, Madison agrees to the return.
The people of the town are back to their normal activities and Nick wanders through them. A woman calls him over to help Don, who is not doing well. Alejandro comes over to treat the group of sick men. One man comments that he'll be leaving them soon but Alejandro tells him to wait it out before going to see Luciana.
They've made their way back to the boat only to find it gone. Alicia suggests that they need shelter and is adamant that Madison has to except the fact that it's just the two of them now whether she likes it or not. To appease her mother, Alicia picks up a stick and the two of them write a note in the sand to indicate the direction they've traveled in. They pause outside of a hotel to consider how dangerous it would be to stay there and if it has any supplies.
Nick continues to earn his keep and he is interrupted by Luciana, who says that they have work to do.
Strand and crew make their way to a boarded up hotel and break in. Strand is the first to enter with the women cautiously following. Strand starts to ring the bell, alarming Madison, then snarks about the service being subpar.
Luciana takes Nick to the bus the community exits from. Nick follows and Luciana and she orders him to follow and to stay absolutely quiet. After stabbing a zombie to a wall, they cover themselves with the walker blood. Luciana explains that she is taking Nick along because no one is going to miss him. Nick questions who will miss her and she replies, "the only one who would miss me is already missing".
Strand and company make their way through the empty hotel. The come across the remains of a wedding reception and Ofelia talks about almost being married once. It seems the marriage didn't happen because she had to take care of her parents. Strand warns that the past will make her sick, before ordering Madison to help him find the kitchen.
Luciana and Nick are now out on the road. Nick asks about the incident this morning and Luciana explains that those near death deliver themselves to the dead to protect the living. Nick asks what if her friend became lunch for no reason and she angrily asks him what is happening. It seems that Luciana thinks that what is happening is that the world is being washed clean and that when the dead go, the world will be purified. It seems that this logic originates with Alejandro, whom Luciana claims was bitten. When Nick questions this, Luciana claims to have seen it for herself.
At the hotel, the kitchen is empty and Madison suggests going room to room. Madison is very anxious to keep Alicia by her side but Alicia walks off with Ofelia. Strand tells Madison to have seat so they can have a drink and when Madison refuses, Victor tells her that it's medicinal.
Luciana and Nick make their way to one of a number of gangs and she warns Nick that they won't hesitate to end him. Marco stands and loads his weapon and Luciana places her knives at the ground at his feet. Luciana asks for water and hands over drugs in exchange. She is offered a cart and told that she can put whatever fits inside it. Luciana tries to negotiate for two carts but is denied. Luciana and Nick enter a large factory with shelves stocked with food.
Strand makes Madison a martini and for the first time, Madison's accent slips and we learn that she's from Alabama. Madison, unimpressed with Strand's martini asks for tequila.
Ofelia and Alicia are going room to room. Alicia finds a room key on the housekeeping cart but when she approaches a door a zombie begins to bang. They quickly realise that doors with do not disturb signs mark the rooms which contained the infected. They finally get into a room and manage to grab some clothing and a container of peanuts. In the bathroom they find a walker which is the remains of someone who hung themselves. It's Alicia who has to encourage Ofelia to keep moving. When they exit the room, Alicia flips the do not disturb sign, indicating to anyone else who comes that the room has a walker in it.
Luciana and Nick begin to shop for water, vitamins and bandages. Nick picks up some treats and Luciana makes it clear that they are only to take what they need. Nick pauses to stare at some of the sick and Luciana rushes him along to help with the water.
Alicia and Ofelia continue to empty mini bars and Alicia wonders why the man hung himself. Ofelia suggests that the man was tired of surviving but Alicia is adamant that you just push on. With tears in her eyes, Ofelia says that she is not going to make it and that her father was always one step behind hope. Alicia declares Daniel wrong, adding that if they lose hope they are dead. Alicia tells Ofelia that she has her and that they are family now. This doesn't seem to bring Ofelia much comfort.
