Sean: Why do I have to be the feckin’ babysitter?
Peter: What’s taking everyone so long!?
Peter: Joy, thank god! We ready to go?
Joy: I am. Shiro, Angie and Bobby found another supply room. They’re checking it out.
Peter: For goodness sake, we have enough. We need to get the medicine back to Georgie as soon as possible.
Joy: I know, Peter, I’m with you.
Peter: Where’s Jai, Charlotte and Aimi?
Joy: Jai’s gone to hurry Angie and the others along. No idea where the girls are.
Peter: Oh, for crying out loud!
Sean: “Stand outside and keep an eye on things, Sean.” Patronising gits. Don’t trust me with the pills is what it is.
Sean: These kids will be the bloody death of me…
Javier: Georgie, what are you doing?
Georgie: Leaving. We’ve got to go stop them.
Javier: They left hours ago. It’s too late.
Georgie: There’s a whole army of those things they’re heading toward and it’s my fault.
Javier: Señorita, even if we had a chance of catching up to them, you are in no position to travel. You need to take it easy.
Georgie: How can I take it easy when-
Javier: Now, careful, let’s get you up.
Georgie: I’m going to die…
Javier: Don’t say that.
Georgie: And the others are probably dead because of me. It’s just gonna be you and Beatrice. You’ve gotta take care of her. Promise me.
Javier: Enough. We are not having this conversation.
Javier: Now, come. Let’s get you to bed.
Big Pete: Eli, mind if we have a word?
Eli: I have somewhere I have to be, but I guess I could spare two minutes. What can I do you for?
Joel: Well, we were just wondering…
Cassie: Did you have Jesse killed?
Eli: Beg your pardon?
Joel: We’re not trying to cause offence or anything…
Big Pete: It’s just… we haven’t seen a peep from him since you raised your gun and he took off.
Eli: And why would you? He’ll be long gone by now. You said as much yourself.
Cassie: We were just curious as to if you sent people out after him and maybe…
Eli: No. I didn’t see the point. He won’t be showing his face again. He has more sense. He might be crafty and able to take care of himself, but he’s just one man.
Cassie: All right, we just had to make sure.
Big Pete: He was an all right kid, you know? Saved our asses on more than occasion.
Eli: I understand. Now, if you don’t mind…
Joel: Sure. Thanks for your time.
Cassie: I think he seems all right.
Joel: I’m not so sure.
Big Pete: If he wanted us dead, he would have done it by now. He’s had plenty of chances.
Joel: I guess.
Woman: ARGH! SOMEBODY HELP ME!
Coleman: No, Leah! No! Help! Steph! Help her!
Steph: What are you a fucking invalid!?
Coleman: Just save her!
Steph: It’s too late.
Coleman: We’ve gotta help!
Steph: I’m sorry, Richard. She’s gone. We need to find the others and get the hell out of here!
Man: There are no others.
Steph: Jeff, you’re all right!
Coleman: What do you mean there are no others!?
Jeff: They’re dead.
Coleman: What!? No! They can’t be! Oh, God help us.
Steph: We’ll have time to grieve later, we’ve gotta move!
Jeff: Yeah, err, she’s right, come on, Richard!
Coleman: ARGH! GET IT OFF!
Steph: Shit, Richard! Hang on!
Alexis: This way.
Steph: Who are you!?
Alexis: Just keep moving!
Alexis: VICKY! GET THE DOOR!
Alexis: VICKY, C’MON!
Victoria: Are you OK, Alexis?
Alexis: I’m fine.
Steph: Thank fuck for that. I’m exhausted.
Alexis: I’m not surprised. That’s one of the biggest groups of them I’ve seen.
Coleman: Thank you so much for saving me, ma’am!
Alexis: You’re welcome. You can call me Alexis, by the way. This is Vicky.
Steph: Hi. I’m Steph.
Alexis: Good to meet you both.
Coleman: I’m Richard Coleman.
Steph: Dr. Richard Coleman.
Alexis: You’re a doctor?
Coleman: Sure am.
Alexis: Excellent. This place of ours could use one of those.
Steph: This place?
Alexis: We have walls in case you couldn’t tell. Houses, food, water, supplies, guns. Everything we need to survive.
Steph: Holy shit.
Jeff: Who runs things?
Alexis: I do.
Victoria: We both do. My father owned this complex. It was about a week away from opening.
Coleman: Lord above. This looks too good to be true.
Alexis: Well, it is true. We have a few other people here that we took in this morning. They struggled every day to stay alive, just like we did and I’m sure you have, too. But the good news is that we won’t have those problems anymore. We’re building something here, a community.
Alexis: And if you follow my rules…
Victoria: Our rules.
Alexis: Shut up, Vicky.
Alexis: If you follow my rules and agree to hand over your weapons for a while, just until we know that you’re trustworthy, then you can live here.
Alexis: I already know the answer to this, but I’ve gotta ask…
Alexis: Are you in?
Sean: What the shitting hell is that?
Jai: You dead in there, friend? And by dead I mean proper dead? Hello? Anyone home? You dead?
Jai: I’ll take that as a yes.
Bobby: The bags full. We’re not gonna get anything else in there.
Angie: You sure?
Shiro: That’s fine. We’ve done well anyway considering it looked like someone had been here ransacking before us.
Angie: We need to hurry and meet up with the others, get the meds back to Georgie.
Shiro: Lead the way.
Jai: What the-!? ARGH!
Sean: OH, SWEET FUCKING JESUS! Oh, shit… oh shit fuck! It’s OK… as long as we keep quiet and stay out sight they should pass on by…
Sean: OH, FOR FUCK SAKE!
Sean: COULD THIS GET ANY FUCKIN’ WORSE!?
Shiro: Shit, Jai, are you OK?
Jai: I’m… I’m fine…
Angie: It didn’t bite you, did it?
Jai: No, no, I’m all right. It just took me by surprise…
Shiro: Let’s get you up.
Aimi: I heard a gunshot. Is everyone all right?
Jai: Yeah, thing almost got me, is all.
Aimi: Oh, OK, well…
Shiro: What’s the matter?
Aimi: You should look outside.
Charlotte: Oh my…
Sean: Lost for fucking words, lass? I know I am.
Charlotte: What are we gonna do!?
Sean: The others need to get their ugly backsides out here now.
Charlotte: Anything I can do?
Sean: Go and tell them to hurry the fuck up. And then say a prayer.
Charlotte: Gonna scout ahead and see how bad this is. I’ll be back.
Sean: Wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t, darlin’.
Peter: Everyone all right? I heard a gun go off.
Jai: That was me. Corpse caught me by surprise.
Peter: At least you’re all right.
Angie: OK, we need to go now!
Aimi: I’ll go get the cars ready!
Peter: What’s the problem?
Bobby: You not seen it outside?
Peter: What do you-?
Shiro: There are enough dead’uns out there to fill a graveyard the size of a football field.
Peter: Oh, fucking hell.
Angie: We’ve got the medicine so we need to go!
Peter: All right!
Aimi: Sean, are you all-? Oh, shit! Oh, shit!
Sean: WHERE ARE THE FUCKING OTHERS!?
Aimi: I…. I…
Sean: HELLO? EARTH TO FUCKING AIMI?
Aimi: They’re coming! They’re coming! I’ll go sort the cars! Hang in there!
Sean: Yeah, don’t be counting on that, sister!
Aimi: What the-!?
Aimi: Charlotte? CHARLOTTE!
Aimi: Where are you going!?
Sean: ABOUT FECKIN’ TIME!
Peter: My God…
Jai: I’ve never seen this many.
Angie: It’s the city. It’s getting worse and worse.
Sean: SOME BLOODY HELP WOULDN’T GO A MISS!
Joy: My word…
Shiro: Where the hell is Aimi!?
Sean: She said she was getting the car!
Shiro: I’ll go check.
Joy: And what about Charlotte?
Aimi: Oh, where the hell has she gone!?
Aimi: NO! GET AWAY! NO! NO!
Aimi: Oh God…
Jesse: You shouldn’t be out here.
Aimi: Thanks… for that… who-?
Jesse: I said you shouldn’t be out here.
Aimi: Who are you?
Jesse: That doesn’t matter.
Aimi: It doesn’t?
Jesse: Turn around and leave the city. It’s not safe.
Aimi: In spite of what you’ve just seen, I can actually handle myself against these things.
Jesse: I wasn’t talking about them.
Shiro: AIMI! AIMI, WHERE ARE YOU!?
Aimi: Shiro, over here!
Shiro: What the hell are you doing?
Aimi: Looking for Charlotte.
Shiro: Where is she?
Aimi: I don’t know.
Shiro: Well, we have to head back. We can’t keep the others waiting.
Aimi: Hold on. I just need to…
Shiro: What is it?
Aimi: Nothing. It’s nothing.
Shiro: Then can we go please!?
Eli: Hello, Charlotte.
Eli: You’re late.
Alexis: I’m sure you’ll be comfortable here.
Alexis: They’re great houses. There’s only the one bedroom but these sofas beat sleeping rough any day.
Steph: It’s great, Alexis. Thank you.
Coleman: We really appreciate it.
Alexis: It’s no problem. Richard, you can have tonight to rest, but I was wondering if you would mind helping me set up an infirmary in one of the old temp offices tomorrow?
Coleman: That’s a great idea. I’ll certainly be up for that.
Alexis: Thank you. Is your friend OK?
Steph: Jeff? He’s a bit upset. We lost a lot of good people today.
Coleman: Leah… Stewart… Alfie… Nathan… Hana… Antonio…
Alexis: I’m sorry.
Steph: But he’ll be OK.
Steph: He just needs time.
Eli: You not gonna say anything?
Charlotte: What’s there to talk about? I did what you asked. I lured them into the city.
Eli: Not all of them. Just Peter and the Asian.
Charlotte: There was no way all of them would have gone!
Eli: Not that it matters anyway. They broke out, all thanks to Terry’s incompetence. May he rest in peace.
Charlotte: And it’s my fault your man fucked up!? Twice!?
Charlotte: Then why are we even standing here talking? I’ve done what you asked. I want her returned to me. Safe and sound.
Eli: Are you sure? She’s having such a nice time. My boys have given her a good seeing to.
Charlotte: Say that again, you fucking cunt. I’ll end you.
Eli: All right. Bad joke. My bad.
Charlotte: We had a deal.
Eli: And we still do. I swear on it. Now, can you lower your bow?
Eli: Thank you.
Charlotte: My mother. Where is she?
Eli: She’s fine. But I’m afraid our partnership isn’t over yet.
Charlotte: The hell it isn’t! I did what you asked!
Eli: Not properly.
Charlotte: Why are you doing this!? Peter and the others are good people! Just leave them be!
Eli: It’s not up for negotiation. I have some new instructions for you.
Charlotte: What if I say no and just fucking kill you right here, right now, and go and find my mother for myself?
Eli: You honestly think I’d come here alone? Come on, Charlotte. You’re a smart girl. You know your mother would be dead within minutes if you did anything to me.
Charlotte: I fucking despise you, you shit!
Eli: Charming. Now, if you’d mind shutting up, I’ll explain what I expect of you next.
Shiro: You all right?
Peter: Fine. How’s Georgie?
Shiro: Jai’s seeing to her. She’ll be good.
Shiro: No sign of Charlotte, then?
Shiro: You should come back. Joy’s prepared dinner. It smells great.
Peter: In a bit.
Shiro: You shouldn’t worry about Charlotte, you know? She can handle herself.
Peter: She’s out there alone in a city swarming with those things for all I know. They outnumber her a thousand to one. I’ll stay concerned, thanks.
Shiro: You can’t worry yourself about every little thing, Petey.
Shiro: … sometimes you just gotta let things be.
Bobby: How’s she doing?
Joy: Better, I think. Right, Jai? Jai?
Jai: Hmm? Sorry, was just thinking.
Bobby: Is Georgie gonna be all right?
Jai: Yes I should think the medicine will get her back on track shortly. Might take a few days. But she’s lucky. We all are.
Joy: Thank heavens. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have her smiling face to wake up to every day.
Jai: My sentiments exactly.
Javier: Is Beatrice OK?
Angie: She’s fine, thanks. But how are you doing, Javier? You good?
Javier: I’m good.
Angie: You’ve really impressed me. What with the way you looked after Georgie and Beatrice today.
Javier: Oh, it was nothing.
Angie: No, it means a lot to all of us. Truly. Thank you.
Javier: You’re welcome.
Sean: Everything OK, lass?
Aimi: Yeah, fine.
Sean: You seem distracted?
Aimi: I’m all right.
Sean: Thinking about Charlotte?
Aimi: No, I mean, yeah, of course, but other things, too.
Sean: You wanna talk about it?
Sean: World’s a lonely place, Aimi. Now more so than ever.
Aimi: I know.
Sean: Well, I’m here if you need a shoulder, kid.
Alexis: You think I wouldn’t hear you come in?
Victoria: Why are you staying here?
Alexis: Why not?
Victoria: There are four vacant houses right outside.
Alexis: I think I’ll prefer to keep my distance from everybody else. Have my own quarters. Might as well get used to it now before we let more people in.
Victoria: And why exactly are you going to let others in?
Alexis: So we can build a community, Vick. We’ve got thousands of roamers surrounding us. Then there’s Eli, he’s gotta be lurking somewhere nearby. Safety in numbers and all that. Mind if I address you from here?
Victoria: Seriously? You’re doing this?
Alexis: Doing what? I just want to be comfortable.
Victoria: Don’t play stupid. Addressing me from behind a desk. Like a fucking headmistress, or something.
Alexis: It’s just formality. We’ll need to set up a structure if we hope to get this place functioning, Vicky. Someone has to be in charge.
Victoria: And why exactly should it be you!? You’re not exactly a people person. And you wouldn’t even know about this place if it wasn’t for me.
Alexis: And you’d be dead if it wasn’t for me. I guess that makes us even.
Victoria: This place belonged to my father! And if he is dead…
Alexis: Which is more than likely.
Victoria: Then this would be mine!
Alexis: Then appoint a lawyer. See how that works out for you.
Victoria: Alexis, be fair!
Alexis: Fair? Nothing’s fair, Vick. People are being torn to shreds and eaten alive. Is that fair? Sickos like Eli Loche are thriving when good, innocent people are suffering at his hands? Is that fair? No. None of it is, yet here you are, lucky to be alive, bitching because you can’t get your own way for once.
Victoria: That’s not true!
Alexis: Yes it is, Victoria. You’ve had everything done for you since the moment you were born. You’ve never worked. Never had to suffer. Never had to make compromises in order to live your life. And that is exactly why I’ve had to step up to the plate.
Victoria: You’re a nasty piece of work, you know that!?
Alexis: Maybe so, but I have what it takes.
Victoria: And I don’t!? Christ, you can be such a bitch!
Alexis: I was going to put this delicately, but if you insist on getting nasty, I’ll just come right out and say it: you’re pathetic, Victoria. Puny. Beyond useless. You couldn’t direct piss into a bucket.
Victoria: Fuck you!
Alexis: No, Victoria, fuck you.
Victoria: You’re actually pathetic, Alexis. I’m done with you.
Alexis: Goodnight. And don’t come in here without knocking again or I will not be responsible for my actions.
Victoria: What? You’re threatening to kill me now?
Alexis: If you like.
Victoria: (Mutters) Not if I kill you first.
Amar: You’re back.
Eli: There’s no need to point out the obvious, Amar. How have things been?
Amar: Quiet. Ghouls are heading north of the city. Knowing our luck, they’ll be some sort of noise that’ll lure them straight back in.
Eli: Well, they’re useful in their own little way. Easy enough to slip past without getting noticed, too.
Amar: Right. You met with the girl, then?
Eli: Yes. It was quite a productive meeting.
Amar: How so?
Eli: She didn’t like what I had to say, let’s put it that way.
Amar: So, she’s not on board?
Eli: No, she is. But she’s not exactly thrilled about it.
Amar: She doesn’t have to be though.
Eli: As long as she does as I ask.
There’s a group I want you to infiltrate.
Because you’re persuasive, Charlotte. Trustworthy. You have that about you…
I know it’s not pleasant, but if you want your mother back, I’m afraid you have no choice.
I surely don’t need to tell you that the camp you’ll end up in is being watched, so you step a foot out of line, we’ll know.
My instructions are simple and they’re not going to change. I expect and trust that you will do your job properly. Do you think you can do that?
Yeah. I guess. I just want my mother back.
And you shall get her.
The people you’ve described. They sound decent, Eli. What you’re doing… it’s sick.
Be it as it may, I’m not changing my mind.
But what if they suss me out?
Who would ever suspect you?
