Plot

A deadly explosion in the oil fields sends June on a mission to save as many lives as possible. But, an investigation by Virginia threatens to undermine June's work.

Synopsis

Virginia and her posse chase a woman through the woods. The woman trips and falls. Hill finds spray paint in the woman's backpack and points to a message spray-painted on a nearby tree, "The End is the Beginning". Virginia orders the woman to explain what the message means. The woman realizes that Virginia is scared of the group responsible for the messages. Virginia tells Hill to take the woman to Lawton for interrogation. The woman grabs a gun and shoots herself in the head.

June rushes a patient into Sarah's truck, which has been transformed into a mobile medical unit, and enlists Sarah to help her surgically remove the patient's infected appendix. The patient dies during surgery and turns, then attacks June. Sarah stabs it in the head.

June buries the patient on the side of the road and says they're stretched too thin to reach patients in time. She says that she approached Virginia about building a hospital, but Virginia rejected her proposal. John radios June to report that he's in route to rendezvous with them.

June rides with John while Sarah follows in the truck. John proposes that he and June run away to the cabin that Janis told him about. Without going into detail, he says that he needs to get as far away from Virginia as possible. June worries that Virginia would hunt them down. They're interrupted by an urgent call from Lucy on the walkie, requesting medical help at the oil quarry. John proposes they leave for the cabin after they're finished helping at the quarry.

June and John arrive outside the quarry and find burned and bloody workers staggering out of the entrance. Lucy explains that an oil well exploded and that people are still trapped in the quarry. Virginia arrives and orders her men to interrogate survivors about the explosion. June privately tells John she'll run away with him after they leave the quarry.

June, Lucy and Sarah enter the quarry. Virginia sees a spray-painted message, "The End is the Beginning", and refuses to let anyone leave until she finds out who was responsible. June argues that they need to evacuate all the victims to give them medical attention.

June finds Wes with a grave stomach wound and tries to stop the bleeding. A walker attacks June. Virginia shoots the walker and finds nails taped to the walker's fingers. She vows to find out who put the nails on the walker's fingers.

Virginia tells June that she's wasting resources by treating a patient who is probably mortally wounded. June ignores Virginia. Wes screams in pain. June asks Lucy to get sedatives. Virginia refuses to let June sedate him until he's interrogated. June says Wes might die if they don't move him to the truck. Virginia insists on questioning him and reveals that Hill and Marcus found spray paint in Wes' bunk.

Virginia asks Wes how long he's been with the rebel group. Wes insists he only uses the spray paint for art and does not know what she's talking about. Virginia shoves her finger in his wound. Wes screams but still maintains that he knows nothing. June injects Wes with sedatives, angering Virginia.

June opens the truck and finds that a number of the quarry victims have already died, turned and eaten other patients. Lucy loads Wes onto the truck and leaves the quarry as June and Virginia kill the walkers. Virginia ushers June inside a building as a well explodes.

Virginia wakes up and finds a walker on top of her. The walker bites Virginia as she fights it off.

Someone radios Virginia and says they're trying to get back into the quarry. Virginia spots an axe and douses alcohol on her wound to amputate her hand. June grabs the axe before Virginia can get it. Virginia asks June to chop off her hand to prevent the infection from spreading, but June refuses. Virginia tackles June. June holds the axe to Virginia's neck and keeps it there as she radios Lucy with instructions to remove shrapnel from Wes' stomach. Virginia tells June that she's just trying to protect everyone from a dangerous group of rebels, then asks what June wants from her. Virginia insists that everything she does is for Dakota. June hacks off Virginia's hand.

Virginia wakes up and finds her amputated arm cauterized with hot metal. June tells Virginia that there is something she wants in exchange for helping Virginia. John digs through the rubble and rescues them.

Virginia rests in a car and asks Hill to radio Dakota so that she can hear Dakota's voice.

Wes wakes up in the truck. Lucy and Sarah ask June why she saved Virginia's life. June says that Virginia agreed to give her a hospital and that she also agreed to assign Wendell to the hospital. Wendell arrives in a car and reunites with Sarah.

John tells June that he's ready to leave for the cabin. June reveals that Virginia is giving her a hospital and that she no longer wants to run. John pleads with June and says that he can't stay. June insists that Virginia can change and that she's actually trying to protect them all from a rebel group. John tells June that Virginia is duping her.

June and Sarah ride in the truck as John follows in his car. The truck veers left, toward Lawton. John veers right, toward the cabin.
