Plot

Riley stands near the outer hatch with McGuire, Pierce, and Alvarez. The four men discuss how, despite the fact that they're currently only 50 klicks off of Galveston, they can't reach anyone. Pierce reveals that after being silent on every means of communication, NC2 suddenly picked up an incomplete message a half an hour before. When Riley asks what he means, Pierce tells him that it was "incomplete like they hit Send without finishing the damn thing." Riley is surprised that their first word from command in weeks is a half-baked message and Pierce tells the others that he has also picked up an FM broadcast out of Houston revealing that the Army has been deployed. McGuire is surprised that it's the Army and not the National Guard and Pierce explains that the broadcast talks about the Army being deployed for "medical incidents." Riley recognizes that the partial EAM and the Army being deployed can't be a coincidence.

McGuire worries about his sister in Houston while Pierce tells the others that Riley has a son that he hasn't even seen yet. Pierce suggests that with how close to shore they are, they should consider going for a swim. McGuire realizes that Pierce is suggesting that they abandon ship and their duties, but Riley states that no one is doing that. Alvarez admits that he can't really see Riley as a father, something that Riley concurs with. Pierce tells the group that Riley has brought a kid into the world and that he has a duty to protect his son and his wife. However, Riley is sure that there will be plenty of diapers for him to change when their tour is up in six weeks with Alvarez adding that he never knew his dad and he turned out fine. Riley states that he tries not to thinking about it as there's not much that he can do about it. A message from Cook about ice cream Sunday's in the mess ends the conversation as the four men depart to enjoy the desert.

In the mess, Riley stands beside Captain Renwick as he eulogizes Friedman. Suddenly, a zombified Friedman emerges, attacking and biting Cook, Bacon and Park. Friedman advances on Renwick who shoots him in the chest several times to no effect. Friedman pushes Renwick up against the wall, causing him to drop his gun in the struggle. Riley grabs Renwick's gun and shoots Friedman in the head, putting him down. Riley then returns the gun to a thankful Renwick. After making sure that Park is alright, Renwick orders Park to get himself bandaged up and tend to the rest of the men. Looking at the corpse, Pierce is surprised that Friedman wasn't dead, but Riley states that he is now.
