There's just one thing I want. I have this gold watch. It was my pop's. One of the only things I have to remember him by. My mom, she likes to say it's the watch that brought her and me back together after things fell apart. I want you to tell her that this time, it won't. 'Cause now? Now it's going to bring me and my dad back together.
―Huck's last words to Jadis.[src]

Jennifer Mallick is a main character and a former antagonist, as well as a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond. She was a security guard for the Campus Colony of Omaha, one of three cities part of the Alliance of the Three. She is a member of the Endlings, but secretly worked for the Civic Republic Military as a spy. However, she later defected back to the side of her friends and became their informant inside of the CRM instead after learning of the genocide of Omaha and the Campus Colony. She is also Elizabeth Kublek's daughter and the wife of Dennis Graham. She served as the secondary antagonist of Season 1.


Jennifer is a friendly but tough-as-nails community security officer with a warrior's spirit and a dry sense of humor. Despite experiencing some horrible things out in the world, she's managed to keep her faith in people, and it's paid off. She firmly believes that if people work together, they can accomplish great things… including the possibility that one day, generations from now, they can bring the world back to what it was.[1]


Queens, New York

Not much is known about Jennifer's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except she spent a lot of time in the wilderness and was a lance corporal in the U.S. Marines. During her childhood, she grew up in Queens, New York where she lived with her uncle. She also had a mother and a father whom she didn't see very often due to their high-ranking statuses in the U.S. Military.[2]


When the outbreak first began, Huck and her infantry unit were stationed to round up survivors and take them to safe zones, a charge which Huck took seriously risking her life to save as many people as possible.

As the outbreak grew worse, her unit was ordered to execute everyone in their safe zone and then retreat. Huck refused to follow this order, resulting in her killing her fellow soldiers to save everyone in the zone. She later is able to safely guide the refugees out of the safe zone.

Civic Republic of Philadelphia

At some point, Huck was reunited with her mother and joined the Civic Republic Military. At some point, she married Dennis Graham, a Master Sergeant in the CRM on the fast track and a golden boy. After Anne joined the CRM about four years in, Jennifer was her mentor.

Around eight years into the outbreak, while Dennis and Jennifer were leading their team through some training maneuvers with walkers, things went wrong and Dennis made a tough call, causing people to get hurt, although Jennifer believes that his call actually saved lives. However, Dennis had been drinking at the time and faced an investigation. He promised to clean up his act if Jennifer would just take some of the heat off of him and Jennifer lied and said that the call was hers and destroyed evidence that proved otherwise, but she got caught after forgetting to erase the keycard logs. As a result, Jennifer took a two year undercover assignment in Omaha to redeem herself in the eyes of the CRM while Dennis ended up taking over the Civic Republic Cull Facility 1.

Season 1


As Felix and Jennifer prepare to escort representatives from the Campus Colony to meet up with representatives from the CRM, Iris approaches them and admires their weapons. As Felix and Jennifer lead the way in their jeep, they encounter a few walkers with Jennifer running one over. After the CRM helicopter lands, Felix and Jennifer introduce themselves to Lieutenant Colonel Elizabeth Kublek with Jennifer awkwardly telling Kublek to call her Huck, stating that her nickname is a long story. Kublek has her men take care of a few walkers drawn by her helicopter and assures them that they will take precautions to ensure that they don't draw any more. After the initial meeting, Felix and Huck drive Kublek and a few of her men back to the university while the rest ride in the bus.

Hope later trains with Jennifer and, sitting in the stands as Elton teaches a karate class, discusses her arrest and how Jennifer never talks about her life in Omaha. Jennifer insists that there's not much to tell, but Hope admits that she's thinking of going to visit despite there being "over a hundred miles of crap" between the Campus Colony and Omaha. Hope is convinced that the world's gonna end again and that building everything back up is pointless. As a result, Omaha will be gone if she keeps waiting for her chance to see it. Hope believes that it's not because of the threat of the walkers, but rather the destructive nature of people themselves. Jennifer tells Hope that "it's not it is what it is" before departing as Hope continues watching Elton's class.

Later, Felix and Jennifer tag walkers with blue paint so that Dr. Bavolar can study their migration patterns. Jennifer reassures Felix that she's happy to help him and she accuses Felix of thriving on the unglamorous because he's still trying to prove himself due to what went down with his parents. Jennifer tells Felix that he's the only one that doesn't think that he's great and points out that Felix is still wearing Will's jacket who probably thinks so too. Jennifer gets Felix to admit that he misses Will and insists that while Felix's parents dealt him a bad hand, she just wants him to be happy and wishes him a happy birthday. Their conversation is interrupted by a radio call stating that Hope is looking for Felix and that it's urgent.

That night, while talking with Hope and Iris, Kublek mentions her daughter and how it is to be seperated from her, although they are unaware that she is talking about Jennifer.

The next morning, Jennifer sits with Felix during Iris' Monument Day speech. Later, Felix reads his birthday card in which Hope reveals that they have taken his and Will's jackets, Felix's S-Pole and some food while Huck tells him that Marco Voci has reported his nephew missing. Felix recognizes that she's talking about Silas and tells Huck that Elton Ortiz from the Independent Dorm is gone as well. Sighing, Huck reveals that she had been training Hope to fight the dead and she guesses that if the group left together, they must be headed for Omaha which is where Hope had said that she wanted to go. However, Felix knows where they are actually going and he is convinced that they will die trying.

The following morning, Felix and Jennifer leave the Campus Colony together in search of Hope, Iris, Elton and Silas.

"The Blaze of Gory"

Felix and Huck discuss Elizabeth ublek giving Hope and Iris a map of New York State where she claims that Leo is. Felix is shocked by Leo secretly sending messages to his daughters as it's not like Leo to take such risks. Huck states that everyone's acting out of love for each other and that Huck might've given Hope the reasons to believe that she can pull this off. As they cross through a rope fence, Felix states that Leo was risking the whole Alliance by sending his messages and Huck wonders if Felix really thinks that Leo and Will are in trouble. Felix brainstorms about what could possibly be the threat that Leo is talking about and expresses his dislike and distrust for the CRM and their absolute secrecy. Huck wonders if Felix is sure that they're on the right road, but Felix knows that they're heading east and what's to the east. Huck is sure that once they see it, the group will turn around and be happy that they have a home to go back to.

Felix and Huck locate the impaled walker that Iris had fought and unsuccessfully tried to put down. The two recognize that the others were responsible for this and Felix angrily tells Huck that Hope will be composting mulch for a year when he finds her. Huck questions Felix about why he only intends to punish Hope and not Iris and the others and Felix is incredulous at the idea that Iris may have been responsible for the group's actions but Huck suggests that she might be. Huck notices that something is bothering Felix, but he brushes her concerns off.

The next day, as he and Huck walk down a street, Felix is haunted by memories of running through the streets on the Night the Sky Fell. Huck notices his distress and Felix admits that he used to live in the area. Felix finds an empty sliced peaches can that Hope had left behind which he recognizes as something that she had stolen from his apartment. Both acknowledge that it's surprising that the group didn't do a better job of covering up their tracks and continue on.

At night, Huck complains about how the air tastes which Felix explains is from the tire fire which means that both they and the others are close and should hit the Blaze sometime the next day. Huck argues for them to take a rest as they are going on 48 hours and Felix isn't even thinking right. Huck warns that if they don't rest, they'll "get whopped by the janitor kid when we find them." Ignoring Felix's protests, Huck heads for a nearby house and pounds on the garage door in order to see if there are any walkers inside. While she knows that Felix is worried for the others, Huck warns him that if he doesn't clear his head and start thinking about the big picture, he'll end up with a scar like hers or worse.

Sitting inside the house, Felix messes with his gun while Huck lies down on the couch. Huck confronts Felix about his refusal to either sleep or tell her about what's bothering him and he points out that she's barely told him anything about her past either. Huck jokes that she has her reputation as the strong silent type to think about and states that the past is the past. Felix finally explains that he was at the University the Night the Sky Fell and as soon as it started to get bad, Felix took off in an attempt to get back to his parents to see if they were okay and if he could be with them at the end which took him two days, mostly by foot. Huck gets that no matter how bad Felix's parents are, they are still his parents and she asks Felix if he ever reached them. Felix sniffs back tears and claims that it doesn't matter as the past is the past. Huck agrees and Felix tells her to get some sleep which she is happy to do while Felix sets a timer on his watch. When Huck wakes up to her watch alarm, Felix has returned after taking off and admits that he couldn't sleep even if he had wanted to. Huck spots dirt on the bottom of Felix's hand, but she doesn't comment on it as they leave.

That night, Felix and Huck find Hope's "WE WERE HERE - THE ENDLINGS" sign. Felix is surprised by the Endlings part and Huck quips that the group now has a nickname. Felix realizes that one of the girls wants them to find the group, but he isn't sure which one, although Felix takes it as a sign that one of them doesn't want to do this and wants their help. As Huck starts to leave, refusing to let Felix sneak off like the night before, Felix spots a walker nearby and draws his S-Pole, moving towards it. Felix puts the walker down with his S-Pole, the same one that Hope had earlier trapped inside of a swimming pool. Huck asks if he is ever going to tell her where he went the previous night and Felix reveals that he had gone to kill his parents.

"The Tyger and the Lamb"

Having trouble opening a door, Elton calls out to Silas for help and when he gets it open, to everyone's shock, Felix and Huck appear on the other side. Felix and Huck demand to know where Hope is and the group tells them the story, although Iris claims that she had talked her sister into going. Felix asks if it was Silas and Elton then who had left the breadcrumbs and when they are confused, Huck explains that they had found an empty can of peaches on the street and graffiti sign - the trail one of them had left behind to get Felix and Huck there. Iris denies the fact that Hope would've left those clues behind for the two as Hope wants to find Leo as much as Iris does. Felix pressures Iris to tell him where Hope has gone and where the siren is, but she refuses, believing that if they go after her, Felix and Huck will only get themselves killed. Iris defiantly states that they have a plan and that this part of it is Hope's. While Iris hates it, right now it is their best chance of getting out of the Blaze alive and Felix will just have to trust Hope like the rest of them. Looking out the window, Huck agrees as there is a herd incoming and without some kind of distraction, they will never get out alive. As Felix and Huck talk to each other quietly, Elton reassures Silas that they can still get out of this and that it's not over, but Silas states that he knows that it will now go the same way that it always goes.

As the group waits to hear from Hope, Felix looks out the window at the large herd milling about and questions why Hope, who had wanted Felix and Huck to find them, would suddenly go on an apparent suicide mission into the Blaze. Iris explains that it's to spare Iris the responsibility of having to do it herself and she admits that while she doesn't know what's going on with Hope, it's not just about their father. To the interest of everyone, Silas admits that he thinks that he knows why: at the treehouse, the walker hadn't gone away by itself but rather Hope had led it away and then she had told Silas not to tell anyone else as well as the fact that their mistakes shouldn't have to follow them. When Felix wonders the point of this, Silas quickly states that it's because sometimes their mistakes do follow them and he thinks that Hope has done something that she feels badly about. Huck asks if Silas is out there because he's trying to get away from the things that he's done, but Felix admonishes Huck for her harsh words while Silas walks away followed by Iris.

Silas angrily bangs his fist on the table, making a dent and startling Elton and Iris. Suddenly, Hope contacts the others and informs them that she found the siren, but the crank was broken so she took the whole thing apart and now she can't figure out how to put it back together again. Iris gives the radio to Felix who demands to know where she is. Hope is surprised to hear from Felix who tells her that Huck is with him too. However, Hope refuses to tell Felix where to find him which would put him in even more danger. Hope resumes work on the siren and tells Felix that the second that she sounds the siren, it'll clear a path for them, but they need to haul ass. Elton is confused by Hope's terminology and, annoyed, Hope orders him to just run to the exit and she promises to meet them there. Hope has Felix give the radio back to Iris and Iris reassures her that she can do this, just like when they were kids. Hope asks Iris to promise not to come back for her if she doesn't make it to the exit in time and Iris makes that promises because she's sure that Hope is going to make it. Hope states that she wishes that she hadn't had a stupid fight with Leo before he left and that while she still wants to find him and see him, she didn't think that they'd be any good to him dead. Iris knows and promises that they will talk about it and make it out of the Blaze and she orders Hope to haul ass to the exit or Iris will kill Hope herself. Agreeing to no goodbyes, Iris flips Hope off again through the radio which Hope appreciates while Elton finally understands what she had meant by haul ass.

Felix orders everybody to get ready to move while Huck provides Silas and Elton with some extra masks that she and Felix had brought along. A distressed Silas tells Elton that he doesn't think that he can do it, but Elton and Iris express confidence in him. Elton hands Silas his bag and as Hope begins sounding the tornado siren, the group heads for an exit at the rear of the office. With the siren drawing most of the herd to the wall of the factory, the group runs through the mostly cleared path, Felix and Huck putting down a few walkers that get in their way with their S-Poles. When Hope struggles to make it due to injuring her leg, Iris rushes to her sister's rescue and they put down a pair of walkers together. Elton runs to support Hope's other side, helping her to run to the exit. However, while putting down a walker, Huck knocks into a wall of tires, causing it to collapse. Silas holds it up while the others rush through the gap between it and the wall next to it. Elton suddenly runs back through for his bag and gets back just in time before the wall collapses, the tires forming a blockade that prevents the herd from following the Endlings any further.

After escaping from the Blaze, the Endlings relax on a dock while laying most of their clothes out. Huck approaches Huck and tells the girl that she should've come to her and Hope asks if it's so that Huck could've tried to stop her. With a laugh, Huck asks if that wasn't what Hope had wanted and tells her to think about what she wants as Hope's sister and her friends are all counting on her. Huck takes her coat and walks away as Hope plays with her bead necklace.

Later, as the Endlings eat, Felix approaches and tells them that they should pack up and leave. Iris questions where he wants to go and Felix informs them that they aren't going back through the Blaze and with the other options on foot not being much better, they head up to Omaha and resupply. The group can then return to the Campus Colony with the next transfer in about two weeks. However, Iris refuses to go back and Silas backs her up, telling Felix that this is the fresh start that he had promised him. Felix tells Silas that his uncle is worried sick about him, but while Silas misses his uncle, Silas believes that he's supposed to be out there and his uncle would want him to be where Silas is supposed to be. Elton declares that he's where he's supposed to be too and Hope agrees with the others. Hope tells Felix that if he really wants to keep his promise to their father, he will help the Endlings find him. Leo is in New York and Kublek has given them the map. Felix already knows this, but he's convinced that the Endlings are only going to get themselves killed trying like they nearly did back at the Blaze. Hope implores both Felix and Huck to come with them then, telling Felix that while he keeps saying that there's nothing that he can do to help their dad, he can help the Endlings help him. However, they are going with or without Felix's help or approval. Huck agrees that Hope has a point, telling Felix that they can't turn them around at least for the moment and that all they can do right now is to keep them safe "till there's something more we can do." While he's not happy, Felix reluctantly agrees and walks away.

Later, Felix leads the Endlings, now including Felix and Huck, in continuing their journey.

"The Wrong End of a Telescope"

Walking down a path, Elton tells Iris that based on the coded map that she was given, the Civic Republic Research Facility is somewhere in New York, but she points out that they don't know where exactly it is yet. Felix calls out that it's all the more reason to turn around, but Hope simply calls it a nice try. Iris states that they might've taken a wrong turn, but this path should still lead to the interstate. Felix states that the bad news is that they are almost out of supplies and rain is coming. Huck states that it would've been one thing if the waystation that Will mentioned had panned out, but it didn't. Silas reassures the others that they will figure something out, surprising her with his smiling even in this situation.

Elton wonders where the Civic Republic itself is, but Iris points out that it's called the Hidden City for a reason and states that she had always pictured it as being underground. Elton agrees with her, but he points out that they refine their own fuel, fly helicopters and grow their own crops which can't all be done underground. Iris points out their research facility where Leo is located isn't actually where they are and that maybe the Civic Republic does all of that other stuff elsewhere too. Elton states that regardless, the Civic Republic's high resource output suggests that they have a large population, which causes their security approach of not saying where they are is understandable. Hope calls it shady which Elton agrees with along with the fact that the messages from Leo are certainly a cause for concern. However, if the Civic Republic has technology and agriculture and sophisticated governmental systems, it would be smart to stay hidden even if it makes others question their motives. Elton concludes that they should feel lucky that the Civic Republic hasn't taken over or taken things. Hope states that they don't know that, but Felix insists that they do since they trade with the Civic Republic as does Portland and Huck reminds the group of their joint protection agreements. Iris simply states that the CRM has their father and Felix acknowledges that they don't know anything about them at all. "Ergo the long walk, Champ," Hope sarcastically quips to Felix.

As the others walk ahead, Felix privately tells Huck that they have just enough food and water to get them to Omaha, but Huck points out that Omaha is to the north while the Endlings are heading to the east and from the looks of it, the group isn't changing their minds. However, while Iris and Silas aren't changing their minds for sure, Felix and Huck wonder about Elton and why he had decided to tag along with the others. Felix comments that he didn't think that Elton knew the girls that well and Huck tells Felix that Elton might be the wedge that they need to get the others to change their minds. Felix agrees to work on talking to Elton about changing his mind while Huck talks to Hope. Iris calls out to the others as she finds and breaks the chain on a gate leading into a high school. Felix suggests that a place like this which is hidden from the world could be a good place to find supplies while Huck points out that it could also be a good place to ride out the rain and Iris is excited about the idea of being inside of a real high school for the first time.

Entering the auditorium after a brief scouting mission, Felix tells the others that the school is huge with no sign of any walkers, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any around. Huck states that their priorities are food, clothes for Hope and anything that they can use to collect water as they can take advantage of the downpour outside for that. Huck agrees that the trophy that Elton and Silas have found is a good idea for catching rain and Iris suggests that they should split up in order to cover more ground. When Felix and Huck hesitate, Iris states that they can handle themselves and she quotes Felix's own words in class right back at him. Amused, Felix agrees and orders Silas to keep his radio on and takes Elton with him to collect water. Hope tries to talk to Iris as they haven't really spoken since the docks and she promises that they can talk later and states that she and Silas will take the first floor. Felix orders the others to keep their eyes open and their weapons drawn and to run if they see any walkers and to be careful. The Endlings split up with Hope pairing off with Huck, although she's not happy that her sister is avoiding her.

Walking through the school's ruined hallways with Huck, Hope rummages through some of the lockers and is amused by a pair of sunglasses that she finds, asking if people had actually worn them. Hope realizes from Huck's grimace that she had worn sunglasses like that too, which Huck refuses to confirm or deny. Hope tosses the sunglasses to Huck who puts them on, puts on a funny face and flashes a peace sign before Hope tells her to stop, embarrassed for her friend, but too hungry to laugh. The two resume walking and Hope begins collecting things from people's lockers while Huck wonders what has changed since the time that they had talked where Hope had believed that the world is ending and that people are shit, but she is now walking through a thousand miles of walkers on just a hunch. Hope ignores the question and plays with some of the clothes that she's found, asking if it's too late to reinvent herself. Huck points out that Hope had left Huck and Felix straight to them and asks if she got roped into the mission or if she had second thoughts. Hope admits to having had second thoughts before having second thoughts about her second thoughts. Huck presses Hope to be straight with her, but Hope refuses to do so until "cool Huck" returns since Huck sounds like her dad right now. Hope stares at a sign for a fallout shelter and Huck notes that she's seen several outlines like the one around the sign around the school, but that this is the first one with an actual sign attached. Hope wonders if someone had taken down all of the others and Huck suggests that if somebody did, there might be something in the fallout shelter worth hiding and they have a chance at resupplying after all. Huck is excited by the idea while Hope points out that they just have to find it now.

Hope and Huck enter a stairwell where Huck bangs on the railing in order to draw out any nearby walkers. With no sign of any, the two begin making their way down the stairs and Hope presses Huck for information on her past, particularly on her dad's reaction to Huck's military service. Huck admits that her father was proud of her, but tells Hope that it's complicated with fathers sometimes as "they have a funny way of showing that they give a shit sometimes" which Hope agrees with.

Hope and Huck emerge on the first floor and Huck tells Hope that the basement steps should be just up ahead. However, the two spot a snarling wolf nearby and Huck orders Hope to get back. Huck goes for her gun, but Hope stops her and the two quickly duck into a nearby classroom. The two observe the wolf through the window and Huck notes that it's standing in a doorway like it's standing guard. Hope wonders if the wolf is defending its young and Huck says that if she's right, she thinks that she knows how they can get around it and to go slow. Emerging from the classroom, Hope and Huck slowly inch their way along the wall and through a grate that Huck closes behind them, seperating the two from the wolf. With a last look back, Hope follows Huck down the hallway.

As they continue searching for the fallout shelter, Hope asks Huck about the whole defending its young thing that she had recognized with the wolf. Huck explains that it was something that she had picked up while being out in the wild for as long as she was and that while it's easy to think that you're reading a situation the right way, sometimes there is something else going on that you have no idea about. Hope knows that this is about Huck trying to get her turn back with all of her earlier questions and Huck states that she should. However, while Hope would've done it a few days before, she now knows that she can't. Hope echoes what Huck had said about dads having a weird way of showing that they give a shit and she suggests that she might've had her dad all wrong. Leo had told her before he left that it wasn't her fault that she was so frustrated and while she had thought at the time that he was just trying to make her feel better, Hope now thinks that Leo might've just been trying to protect her like the wolf was doing with its young. Hope admits that she doesn't know what Leo was trying to protect her from, but she intends to find out when they find him.

Crouching under a half raised sliding door, the two find a door leading into the fallout shelter's pantry which is full of food. However, Huck spots a walker that is missing a leg on the floor and orders Hope to start packing up supplies while she uses her S-Pole to put the walker down. Hope is disgusted when Huck loads up on cans of sardines before they heard Iris calling for help and banging on the locked door leading into the rest of the fallout shelter. Huck begins working on getting the door open while Iris calls out to her sister that they need to get the door open as there are walkers in the shelter and it's about to get bad. Huck promises that they are going to get the two out of there and orders her to hang on. With the help of Felix and Elton, the two get into the fallout shelter just in time to witness Silas beating a walker to death with his bare hands, throwing Elton to the ground in his rage. Felix puts down the other walkers and manages to snap Silas out of his rage. Everyone stares at Silas in shock while Silas, staring at his own shaking hands, apologizes to his friends.

Later, Elton plays with his flashlight while holding an ice pack to his injured shoulder while Felix and Huck prepare their supplies nearby, including all of the water that they have collected. Huck compliments Elton's toughness and Elton thanks her, but he admits that he's more worried about Silas. Huck leaves the room moments later, giving Elton and Felix the privacy to talk alone.

In the auditorium, Felix checks that Silas, now cleaned up, is good which he confirms. Patting Silas on the shoulder, Elton reassures his best friend that he is before having the Endlings line up for a group picture together, much to the surprise and teasing of Iris due to Elton only ever using his camera to document things.

"Madman Across the Water"

Elton smiles at a sign for Daiquiritown on the side of the road. As the others walk by him, Iris and Silas, talking and laughing, Elton turns and follows his friends, smiling at Iris and Silas' jovial mood. Elton looks back at Felix who gives him a nod as they continue their journey.

That night, as the Endlings camp out and Felix and Huck set up protective netting, Elton works on continuing his mother's manuscript. Iris informs Hope that, according to Huck, the U.S. Military had blown up all of the bridge crossings over the Mississippi River when things went bad, meaning that the group will need a boat in order to get across. Huck warns the others that the crossing is going to be tough and the terrain on the other side of the river will be worse than anything that they've encountered so far and asks if they are ready to do this. Recognizing that Huck is once again trying to get them to turn back, Iris and Hope sarcastically agree with her that they aren't ready and that they should turn back. As Huck walks off, the two girls exchange fist bumps in victory while Elton chuckles.

The next day, as the group continues their journey, Elton takes a picture of a decomposing walker that has plants growing out of it. Walking past a destroyed bridge and half-sunk boats, Hope sarcastically comments on their many options. Huck privately asks Felix for an update and he reveals to her that they might have Elton on their side, although in a perfect world they would have at least one more with them. Felix tells Huck that this is the only plan that they've got which she acknowledges and states that she is thus thinking ahead to Plan B. Huck suggests that it doesn't have to be all or nothing and that if Elton can get Silas to see the light, the best way to protect the group might be to have one of them keep going with the girls while the other one goes back with the boys. Obviously unhappy with this idea, Felix instead tells Huck that they might still have time to change some hearts and minds.

Reaching the end of the wharf, Elton suggests that the locals had used the boats kept there to evacuate when things got bad and that they are likely looking at the last of them. Iris decides that they will get creative and build their own boat which Hope supports. Felix is incredulous at the idea, but Iris suggests remodeling an old trailer nearby into a boat. While Elton tries to downplay the suggestion, Silas thinks that it could work if they fix it up and add stuff to it while Hope suggests that they can look for parts at a warehouse further north. With everyone else agreeing, the Endlings head for the warehouse, although Felix is visibly unhappy at the idea.

Arriving at the warehouse, the group taps on the outside in order to confirm that it's empty of walkers before entering. Hope is discouraged by the state of the warehouse, but Iris isn't quite so pessimistic about their chances of finding anything there. Iris and Hope find a few boxes of nail polish and Iris has the Endlings split up and keep looking for anything that might be useful to them. As Elton searches, he comes across the dead body of a walker against one of the shelves.

After completing their search, the group starts going over what they have found: barrels for flotation, straps for binding and fastening, a fan blade that could make a good propellor and a lot of pallets outside that can be broken up for wood as well as a tool box full of tools. Felix points out that they don't have an engine and that without that, they have nothing to fight the river's current. Elton states that there's not much left in the warehouse other than some long-dead batteries, a huge broken air conditioner and a couple of bags of sand. Iris comes up with the idea of using the air conditioner's parts to make some kind of steam boiler like how Hope had created a still back at the Campus Colony. Silas states that the steam boiler would be like the dorm furnaces that he had to fix and Hope figures that it's worth a shot. While Felix remains visibly unhappy, Huck agrees to try out their plan.

On the banks of the river, the Endlings work together on building their boat using the parts that they have gathered, even Felix despite his reluctance to go along with the plan. Felix eventually pulls Huck aside and tells her that the closer they get to finishing the boat, the harder it's going to be to sway the others to turning around and going home. Felix wants to make the pitch now while Huck and Elton will come in and back him up. While Huck knows that Felix is only trying to protect the group, she thinks that maybe it's time to let this plan go. As Felix and Huck argue, they fail to notice the fact that Hope has overheard their conversation.

After overhearing Felix and Huck discuss Felix's plan and Elton's part in it, Hope angrily confronts Elton about it. Elton admits that he has been working with Felix kind of and Hope flatly rejects to hear Felix out and accuses him of planning to sabotage the boat if he can't change their minds. Elton tells Hope that he's been listening to Felix and a lot of what he's saying about going back makes sense, but Hope angrily reminds him of how Elton had wanted to see the world from start to finish. Felix reveals that he had wanted them to take the boat downriver and then back up the banks of the Missouri River until they reached the Campus Colony. Felix calls this plan safer than cutting through the Blaze and the smartest thing for them right now, reminding Hope that they don't know where they're going, what they're going to do if and when they get there and they don't even know that Leo is really in trouble. Getting heated, Felix suggests that Leo could've sent them ten messages that he's fine since their departure. However, Hope knows that Felix doesn't really believe that last statement. Felix angrily tells Hope that it doesn't matter what he believes as Felix had made a promise to Leo to keep her and Hope safe and that is exactly what he intends to do. Hope accuses Felix of caring more about his promise than Leo's life, leading to an increasingly-heated exchange before Iris breaks it up, telling the two that they don't have time for this as there is still so much left to do. Iris orders them to "leave your shit at the door, because without each and every one of us giving 100%... we're not making it across that river." The argument ends and the Endlings go back to work.

Walking along the banks of the river with Huck looking for a possible source of fuel, Hope sees only driftwood which Huck calls better than nothing and decides to have them grab it all. Hope expresses her anger over the way that Felix messed with Elton's head in order to get them to turn around, but Huck defends Felix and Elton, telling Hope that they were only doing what they thought was best for everybody and that it's not really something that Hope can fault them for. However, Hope isn't willing to let it go, stating that she can fault them for being shady and for what Huck just said too. Hope questions which side Huck is on since she had also overheard Huck talk about calling the plan off. Huck admits that for a long while, she was all for bringing the Endlings back home, but now she's not so sure. "This thing we're doing right now going across country, is big, maybe the biggest thing we'll ever do" and it's things like this that makes people stronger and better.

When Hope is still unconvinced, Huck brings up how the story that everyone knows of how she got to Omaha in the first place: she was found floating down the Missouri River in a raft with a broken arm, in a messed-up state and not sure if she's coming or going. The next thing that she knows, people are calling her Huck which she doesn't mind, calling her nickname kind of cool. Huck admits that she leaves a lot out of that story such as the days when she didn't know if she was going to live or die and how close Huck came to giving up and letting the water just take her away. However, if she had given up and didn't keep pushing every single moment, she never would've lived long enough to have been found by Omaha Security. Hope apologizes, but Huck waves it off and tells Hope that her experiences have pushed her to be stronger and better and she suggests that this mission might do the same thing for Hope and her friends and maybe even Felix. Hope suggests that Huck should tell him that and Huck reveals that she was about to when Hope interrupted them. Huck thinks that it might not be her place to tell him that, however and he might need to figure it out for himself in his own way. Felix approaches the two, asking for a word alone with Hope and Huck leaves the two alone.

Later, Hope, Elton and Silas watch as Huck loads driftwood into their makeshift steam boiler. However, Huck warns them that the fire's not hot enough and the driftwood isn't cutting it. Hope objects that it's the best that they could find and that there must be something else. Silas remembers that the boxes containing the nail polish back at the warehouse said that it was flamable and Huck sends Elton and Silas to take care of getting that while she, Felix, Iris and Hope remain behind to finish work on the boat. With a storm coming in, Hope suggests that the two boys double time it.

As Hope continues to work on the boat, Huck warns that the storm is getting closer and Hope demands to know where Silas and Elton are. Suddenly, smoke pours from the boiler and Hope climbs up on top of the boat to tend to it with Huck. Felix and Iris arrive and begin to tell them something, but Huck tells them that they already know about the lightning storm heading their way real fast. Iris reveals that there's a herd of a couple of dozen walkers heading their way and that they are maybe only fifteen minutes out. Felix tells them that they don't have enough time and that they need to take cover, but Iris warns them that the rising water will wash the boat away and they can't risk that. Hope states that they'll launch before the shit hits, but Iris realizes that Silas and Elton are still missing.

Hope, Felix and Huck frantically rush to finish the boat, causing Hope to accidentally cut her hand in the process. Felix gives her something to wrap it up with as Silas and Elton finally arrive with the buckets of nail polish. Iris pours the nail polish into the steam boiler, causing the drive belt to begin spinning before fire comes out of the boiler and the drive belt stops moving. Spotting the herd approaching, Felix borrows Elton's fisherman and uses it to string up a makeshift net between two trees, holding back the herd temporarily. Looking under the boat, Iris discovers that the drive belt has come loose and it can only be fixed if someone can fit under the boat and reattach it. Iris turns to Elton, the only one small enough to fit, but he refuses as Elton is claustrophobic. Iris pleads with Elton to do it anyways as it is their only chance. Closing his eyes, Elton remembers cowering, scared, in the box ten years before. Finally, Elton agrees and begins to crawl under the boat with a screwdriver. As Elton fixes the boat, Iris, Hope and Huck briefly join Felix in holding back the herd before Iris and Hope pull Elton free after he gets stuck fixing the boat.

Running out of time with the herd approaching and their limited fuel, Iris, Hope, Huck, Elton and Silas work together and attempt to push the boat into the river. However, they are unable to move it at all. Feeling that they have no other choice, Hope decides that they need to abandon the boat and make a run for it against Iris' objections, but Felix appears with a plank of wood to use as a lever. As the herd closes in on them, the Endlings successfully launch the boat and set sail across the Mississippi River to Illinois.

That night, as the Endlings camp, Felix approaches Huck and confirms with her that she's alright with their change of plans. Huck promises that they'll keep the group safe and when they find Leo and Will, they'll keep them safe too. Huck proposes that for now, they divide and conquer and she explains to the group that she's going to spend the next day or two scouting ahead. Their intel is weak for this side of the river and they are only as solid as their intel. Hope is surprised that Huck is going off on her own, but she promises to be back within 48 hours at the most and until then, they are in good hands with Felix. With a pat on the shoulder to Felix, Huck ducks under the netting strung around the camp and leaves on her scouting mission.

"Truth or Dare"

In a dream, Huck approaches a friend of hers in a bar intercut with thermal images of people running around. Huck awakens in an abandoned office, gathers her belongings, cleans her gun and takes a watch lying on a nearby table. Later, hiding beneath a bridge, Huck watches a herd pass by and puts down Dawson, taking his boots, but seeming to become upset after finding a pin with the Marine insignia on him. Continuing her journey along a stream, Huck hides when a truck approaches her, only to have Felix whistle and wave to her from the passenger's seat. Felix jokes about Huck being blown away by his haircut and she fondly calls him a jackass.

Hopping out of the truck after they arrive at their destination, Huck tosses the boots that she took from Dawson to Silas who is surprised that she managed to find him 13 and a half sized boots. Huck notices Hope sitting on some nearby stairs holding Amelia's manuscript and watching Tony teach Elton a magic trick. Huck smiles as she watches Tony and Elton, but her smile drops as she turns and looks at where Hope is watching them.

Huck approaches Felix who is eating alone and offers him a Mountain Dew that she found in some crates behind an old gas station. Noticing Huck's watch, Felix asks what else found besides the watch and Huck reveals that she spotted a big herd moving south and a lot of blocked roads along the main route. However, as long as they keep to side streets, they should be good. Huck notes that Felix had found a couple of conmen in a stolen CRM truck, but Felix reassures Huck that Tony and Percy are alright and with their truck, the Endlings can reach New York in days instead of weeks. Although Huck points out that they don't have enough fuel to get to New York, Felix reveals that Tony has a lead on where they can get some more.

That night, Tony dramatically presents a CRM map to the Endlings which has no landmarks designated or points of interest labeled. While the map, to all appearances, looks to be useless, looks can be deceiving. Percy brings his uncle a wooden box with a few plastic squares and Tony holds one up, explaining that when Percy first discovered them in the truck, they had reminded Tony of the colored lenses that he used in his Prism of Light illusion. As a result, Tony has discovered that you set the squares up at proper distances, shine a beam of light through them and symbols appear on the map, in this case, oil drops, which Tony identifies as hidden CRM fuel caches and all of the gas that they need. Percy adds that the ones that he and Tony have hit so far have mostly just been shacks with landing pads and they were all unmanned and unguarded where helicopters touch down, refuel and take off again. Huck is excited, stating that she can't believe it, while Iris becomes intrigued.

Left alone by the kids, Tony asks Felix and Huck where they are going exactly, but Felix admits that they don't know yet, much to the confusion of Tony. Felix levels with Tony, explaining that Hope and Iris' father is at a Civic Republic Research Facility somewhere in New York. If the CRM even knew that they were even trying to find one of their facilities, everyone in the group could be in danger. While Tony and Percy aren't averse to danger, he is dubious about their plan since they are flying blind, but Huck promises that they will figure it out even if that mean flying blind until they do.

In a flashback, Huck and her fellow Marines are at a bar where a blindfolded Huck is spun around several times. Huck asks her designated spotter Drake for a target and trajectory report and Drake gives her directions. On Drake's command, Huck throws a dart, hitting a bullseye next to two other darts already in the bullseye. Everyone cheers and Huck later brings Drake a beer near the jukebox, touching his facial scar as they stand together. The two joke a moment about Drake's scar, before Huck becomes serious and asks if he ever thinks about "that morning in the Devil's Pass," but Drake counters by asking if she ever stops thinking about it. As Huck becomes upset, Drake tells her that all that Huck needs to remember about that morning is that they had each other's backs. Suddenly, their conversation is interrupted by a breaking news report about six local hospitals closing their doors to patients and going into lockdown within the last 24 hours with reports of chaos and confusion being received by the news station.

Later, the Endlings gather around the table where Iris shows them the CRM map that Kublek had given to her and Hope before they left the Campus Colony. While some of the markings on the decoder overlays didn't form symbols on Tony's map, when she tries them on this map, they do. Iris points to a symbol on the map that Elton recognizes as a DNA strand. Felix realizes that Iris thinks that it's the research facility and she asks him what else it could be. Hope is excited that they now know where to find their father and while Silas smiles at first, he gets upset and jealous when he sees Iris and Percy smiling at each other.

Walking by as Tony tells Felix to leave the kids be to be teenagers as they deserve some celebration, as does Felix after his exciting discovery, Huck agrees with Tony and tells the two men that she's going on a perimeter check and she will be back. Noticing how downtrodden Huck seems to be, Felix asks if she's alright, but she just claims to be tired. After Felix gives her a look, Huck admits that she took out a walker that morning that was wearing the EGA which has brought back some memories for her that are both good and bad. Felix realizes that he was a Marine, but Huck corrects that the man still is, as is she. As Huck leaves, Tony dramatically presents a flask to Felix and suggests that they have a drink of their own which Felix accepts. Sitting on the roof outside, Huck studies the Marine pin that she took from Dawson's body.

In a flashback, Sergeant Wilkins informs the unit that their current strategy is containment, separating the well from the sick, while the source and nature of the current crisis can't be confirmed. However, with reports of widespread rioting violence, the Marines are being deployed into the city's service tunnels to find civilians and escort them to safety. If they are under any kind of threat, they are to eliminate any and all hostile targets that they encounter.

Making their way through the tunnels, some of the Marines discuss theories about where the outbreak came from. Suddenly, they hear the screams of civilians the growls of walkers ahead. The Marines open fire on two walkers to no avail until Huck finally takes them down with headshots. Huck tells the others that "they were people. Sure as hell ain't now" and orders them to go for the heads if they see any more of them as headshots had put them down. Hearing screams nearby, Huck tells the others that they have civilian friendlies alive close by and that's their mission. The unit spreads out in search of the civilian survivors. Suddenly, all of the lights go out except for emergency lighting and Huck and Drake activate their night vision. Huck reports to Drake that she sees a lot of activity ahead and orders him to stay close. As walkers close in on the civilians, Drake strongly suggests that they start shooting something, but Huck is worried that they can't tell the friendlies from the hostiles. Drake suggests that she try switching to thermal vision which reveals that the walkers have a lower body temperature than regular people. Using this, Huck and Drake are able to eliminate all of the walkers and Huck reassures a group of huddled civilians that they are safe and that the Marines will be getting them out of there.

In the present, Huck is joined on the roof by Hope whom she chastises for being on the roof drunk and at all. Hope asks what Huck is doing up there and she returns the question, knowing that something has been bothering Hope ever since the Blaze. Hope tearfully reveals that she had killed someone on the Night the Sky Fell and that she didn't know who she was, that the woman was afraid that Hope's mom was going to take her truck. The woman freaked out and shot Kari before dropping the gun after which Hope picked it up and it went off, killing her and her unborn child. Hope reveals that the woman was Elton's mother and Huck tries to comfort Hope, telling Hope that she was just a kid and Amelia had killed her mom in front of her. Hope tells Huck that Elton doesn't know and that while Iris knows, she doesn't know that it was Elton's mom. Huck tells her that they shouldn't know and that they can't change the things that they've done, they can only carry the truth for everybody else so that they don't have to. Hope asks Huck how to do this, but Huck doesn't know, telling her that some nights it can get "so damn dark" and then somehow, it can get even darker. However, Huck promises her that the light will eventually come.

The next day, the Endlings drive to the CRM fuel depot where Hope, Iris, Felix, Huck, Percy and Tony stand outside of the entrance while Silas and Elton wait by the truck. Tony tells the others that there is a stash of refined CRM fuel just ripe for the taking somewhere inside and Huck notes that it's a big place, deciding that they will split up, start at the bottom and work their way up. Felix asks if these places are clear of walkers which Percy confirms as far as they can tell since the CRM keeps their things locked up pretty tight. However, this isn't a problem for them as Percy, Tony and Felix are good at lockpicking. Iris tells the others that they should still stay alert nevertheless and they head out with Hope taking a moment to look back at Silas and Elton.

Paired up together, Huck asks if Hope is still going to talk to Elton. Hope tells Huck that she's finished Amelia's book and Amelia was smart and kind and Hope thinks that she just got scared and did a bad thing. Hope suggests that if she can forgive Amelia, then maybe Elton can forgive Hope for what she did. However, Huck questions if this is about Elton or Hope herself, telling Hope that the truth can be a funny thing and that while people say that's what they want, it isn't. Hope asks if they are just stuck living a lie, but Huck states that if people don't know that they're living a lie, then they just live. They pay the cost, but the people they are lying to get to live because of them. Huck then continues walking, leaving Hope behind for a moment.

In a flashback, Huck asks a blood-spattered Owens where the others are, but he just shakes his head at her. Wilkins informs the Huck, Drake and Owens that they have received orders per Central Command: Sunset Protocols are in effect and, pending final authorization, units in the hot zone will be directed to kill all targets in their grid. Huck asks him what he means and Wilkins clarifies that it means that they put down anything still walking, friendly or unfriendly, civilian or hostile, living or dead, horrifying Huck.

In the present, Huck notices that Hope has disappeared and, with Hope not answering her calls, Huck draws her gun and begins looking for her friend. Huck finds Walter holding a terrified Hope hostage with a gun to her head and he demands that Huck drop her gun. Huck puts her gun away and advances on Walter, trying to calm him down, but he demands that she stop. Huck agrees and notices a wound on Walter's leg, asking what happened to it. However, Walter refuses to answer, stating that he asks the question and calling Huck one of the people with the helicopters, demanding to know how many more there are. Huck lies that it's just her and Hope and that they are just scavenging, but Walker accuses her of lying since both Hope and Huck have the CRM symbol on their jackets. Huck again asks what happened to Walter's leg and if the dead had taken a bite out of it.

Shaking a terrified and crying Hope, Walter tells her to shut up and that this place is "ours" and that the CRM had come and taken it and they took it back. Huck insists that they didn't take anything and that she's not a part of the CRM. Noting that Walter doesn't look too good, Huck tries to get him to talk about it and, calming down a little bit, Walter tells her that he doesn't know what happened: he woke up and his brother had somehow died and turned and bit him. Walter stabbed him and his brother is now dead in the next room. Huck tells Walter that he won't last much longer with his leg, but when Huck moves towards him again, Walter again threatens to shoot Hope. Huck introduces herself and Hope, stating that they are just passing through and asks for Walter's name. Walter finally introduces himself and Huck promises that she can help him, but first he has to let Hope go. Walter refuses and Huck tells him that Walter didn't let her finish: once Hope is free, he can train his sights on her. Hope protests, but Huck tells Walter that Hope is just a kid and harmless and he should focus on her. Walter finally releases Hope and trains his gun on Huck who tells him that they now need to talk about how they are going to save him, but Walter believes it to be impossible. However, Huck tells Walter that they can do it and to trust her.

In a flashback, Wilkins is on the phone with Central Command. Huck protests that they can't do this, but Owens tells her that an order from Central Command is like an order from God and they have to. Owens suggests that the civilians might be infected and that shooting them might be the only way to stop this thing from spreading.

In the present, Huck tells Walter that she's going to have to take his leg before his infection spreads any further. However, Walter tells Huck that it's been too long and that she shouldn't be there and maybe none of them should be. Walter apologizes, telling Huck that it's not personal, but Huck tells him that if he shoots her, Walter will take his life with that bullet too. Hesitating, Walter asks if Huck can really help him and Huck states that she's seen people survive amputations hours after infection. Walter again accuses Huck of lying, but she insists that she's not.

In a flashback, Wilkins tells the unit that he has just received final authorization for Sunset Protocols and they all know him and that he doesn't like this anymore than they do. However, they are being trusted with these orders because they are absolutely necessary. Any Marine, including Wilkins himself, who fails to follow these orders will be taken into custody and brought up on charges. Seeing Huck's expression of horror, Drake insists that they don't have a choice.

In the present, Huck notices just how much Walter is swaying and soothingly tells him that his gun is getting heavy and that no one would blame him for dropping it. Walter tells Huck that it wasn't supposed to go this way and, having slowly made her way closer to Walter while they were talking, Huck grabs him and disarms Walter, holding him from behind. Huck soothes a crying Walter who asks if she can save him and Huck says that she can save him.

In a flashback, all of the Marines except for Huck prepare to execute the civilians on Wilkins' orders. Staring at the frightened people that they are supposed to protect, Huck snaps and kicks the off button on the generator, turning out the lights. Turning on her night vision, Huck spins and shoots all of her fellow Marines in the head, killing them. Drake yells for Huck to stop and, turning around, she and Drake point their guns at each other from point-blank range. Huck orders her friend to drop his gun, but he refuses, stating that he's a Marine and he doesn't know what the hell she is. With no other choice, Huck shoots and kills her best friend.

In the present, Huck shoots Walter in the head, killing him. Horrified, Hope tells Huck that she said that she could save him, but Huck tells Hope that it's time for Hope to forgive herself. Hope has a future and she has to see that now. Iris, Felix, Percy and Tony rush in and ask what happened, but Hope simply tells them that Huck saved her. Huck tells the others that Walter had radios and supplies while Felix reveals that they found the fuel. Flipping through some notebooks, Tony states that they found something else too locked in a cabinet. Percy asks what they are and Tony calls them something to potentially work with.

After the Endlings stop at a recreation center for the night, Iris stops Silas in the hallway, telling him that Tony has something that he wants to say to the group. Tony announces that after talking it over with Felix, he and Percy have decided to extend the terms of their agreement with the others. Percy states that instead of just dropping them off, he and Tony want to stick around and do what they can to help them find Leo. Felix orders everyone to get some sleep as they leave first thing in the morning and Tony heads off to charge up the radios and top off the tank while Hope and Iris hold each other's hands for a moment. Percy asks Iris to see her by the truck in an hour, telling her that it's just gonna be him there and that he needs to get his gloves back. Iris tries to give Percy back his gloves immediately, but he claims that his hands aren't cold now but that they will be in about an hour. Iris agrees and she walks off while Silas watches jealously and eyes Percy's liquor.

In a flashback, Huck leads the civilians out of the tunnels to safety.

In the present, Hope approaches Huck outside and tells Huck that she was right and that telling Elton the truth would be for Hope's benefit, not his and the truth would just crush him. Huck calls Hope a good person and Hope shows Huck her bead necklace, revealing that she took from Elton's mother after killing her and she asks if Huck still thinks that she's a good person. Huck tells Hope that she knows that Hope is and that her necklace proves it. Remembering scarring her own face in the same way that Drake's face was scared, Huck knows that Hope took it as a reminder, something that she wears every day, to remember the bad that she's done, a reminder to keep living to do good as that's the only way to make the bad mean something. Huck promises Hope that she's going to be okay and they hug.

Awhile later, looking for Percy, Iris finds Tony with his head bashed in in one of the bathrooms. Calling for help, Iris notices Silas' Wrench lying bloody next to Tony's dead body and a trail of blood leading to a broken window that she realizes must've come from Percy. Felix runs in and stares at Tony's body in shock while Hope, Elton and Huck run in and join them. Drawing his gun and having Huck cover him, Felix makes his way to where somebody is visible in a stall. Opening the door, Felix is shocked to find Silas passed out with a bottle of liquor next to him and covered in blood. Silas wakes up and looks silently at Felix.

"The Sky Is a Graveyard"

As Silas sits tied up outside, Hope, Iris, Elton, Felix and Huck argue about Silas' culpability in Tony's murder and Percy's disappearance. Iris insists that someone else must've been responsible and that Silas isn't a murderer, but Huck points out that they've seen Silas lose control before and that Silas was drunk, blacked out and woke up covered in Tony and Percy's blood. Iris argues that Silas could've stumbled on Tony and Percy just like them, but Felix states that Silas has told them that he doesn't remember. While Felix believes Silas, they have to look at the hard facts: Silas was angry and he didn't like Percy. Iris points out that Tony and Percy were grifters who must've had enemies and she suggests that someone that they had ripped off came back for revenge. However, Huck informs Iris that they have turned the recreation center upside down and found no sign that anyone else was ever there and if someone was, they would've taken Tony and Percy's things. In contrast, Silas was found passed out at the scene, his wrench covered in Tony's blood. While Hope doesn't want to believe it either, she reminds Iris that Huck is right and they've seen Silas lose it before and they've all heard the stories about Silas' dad. Elton sides with Iris, telling the others that Silas is their friend and he has earned their trust. Elton believes that there must be another explanation of some kind such as wild animals or marauders even. Iris states that they never found Percy's body and he may still be alive and need their help and Elton hopes that Percy could tell them what actually happened. However, Felix states that they had searched for Percy for hours and only found a trail of blood that had stopped at the river. Even if Percy had survived his injuries, Felix doesn't think that Percy could fight the current and has most likely drowned. Elton questions why Silas would attack the people that were trying to help them and Huck states that she has an idea of why and leaves the room.

Huck goes outside and, after apologizing to Silas, takes Silas' duffle bag off of the ground. Returning inside, Huck starts going through Silas' belongings against Elton's protests. Huck pulls out several drawings, telling the others that she had seen them when they were camped out a few nights before and that it wasn't her business until now. While Elton is confused by the significance of the drawings, Iris recognizes them as her own.

Later, as Felix looks out the window at Silas, Huck reminds him that the rules state that they need to take Silas to Omaha where he can be arrested and tried for murder. Huck asks if he intends to turn the group back, but Felix suggests that Huck take him alone instead, knowing that now that they know where the research facility is, there is no getting Hope and Iris to turn back. Huck points out that Silas is twice her size and she couldn't stop Silas if he simply chose to refuse to go anywhere with her. The two know that the decision falls upon them, but Felix isn't sure if they should take Silas with them or leave him behind.

Huck digs a grave for Tony's body outside and is approached by Hope. Huck warns Hope that Felix will be pissed if he knows that she's out there, but she doesn't care, stating that she was looking for Elton. Hope then joins Huck in digging Tony's grave, giving a brief look at the wrapped corpse. Hope grows frustrated digging into the frozen ground, recalling how she barely knew Tony, he'd tried to steal all of their stuff and was "kind of a dick, actually," but acknowledges that Tony was alright. Huck states that Tony was a mixed bag like everybody else, including Silas and tells Hope to feel how she wants to feel about it, but to keep asking herself how to serve the greater good which is how you stay focused. Hope refutes this, telling Huck that she's got the wrong sister as Iris has always been the good one. However, Huck corrects Hope that she's talking about the greater good which isn't always about right or wrong but about doing what's best for everybody even when you know it's gonna hurt. With everyone wanting to reach the research facility and help Leo, every choice has to be about making it there. "Sometimes what's painful in the moment... is what gets you where you need to go." Dropping her shovel, Huck goes to get Tony's body, stating that the grave is now deep enough. The two women then finish burying Tony's body.

Iris and Elton later observe Felix and Huck arguing with each other as they hold their own conversation.

The next day, after Silas chooses to exile himself from the group, Huck asks if Felix thinks that Silas will come back for them. However, Felix doesn't think that Silas will be back, suggesting that Silas might now finally get the fresh start that he'd wanted.

In a flashback, Huck is let in to the abandoned office where Elizabeth Kublek is waiting to debrief her on Huck's mission. Huck tells Elizabeth that she was only able to get away for about 48 hours and if she isn't back soon, the Endlings will come looking. Huck reassures Elizabeth that "the asset" is safe and Elizabeth asks after Huck's safety. Huck promises that she's fine too and Elizabeth orders her daughter to clean up before they debrief. Elizabeth gives her daughter her father's watch so that next time she won't be late.

"The Deepest Cut"

At night, Huck drives the truck down a dark road.

In a flashback, Elizabeth provides her daughter with a sandwich in the abandoned office, impressing Huck that Elizabeth had remembered not to put lettuce on it. Huck reveals that while things are going good with "the asset", she is not yet ready for integration. Elizabeth warns Huck that the timeline can't and shouldn't drag on and that the longer that she takes, the more Huck is exposed to potential scrutiny, however minor the expenditure it entails. Huck orders her mother to remind anyone that doubts her about what she did to her own face and arm and the days that she had spent on the raft to earn trust in Omaha. Huck insists that she can make it work and that she just needs more time with "the girl."

In the present, Huck watches as Iris falls asleep in the passenger seat and she looks into the back where Hope and Felix are sleeping against each other. Huck spots a road sign revealing that Ithaca is only 113 miles away.

In a flashback, Huck tells Elizabeth that they have others with them and that it was unavoidable. Elizabeth states that nothing is unavoidable and that getting the asset alone and isolating her from the others is critical which Huck is annoyed by as she already knows this. Elizabeth orders Huck to do whatever it takes to make that happen and warns her that if Huck can't, the CRM will. Huck is surprised by this as Elizabeth had told her that the CRM hadn't wanted to put any more resources into this, but Elizabeth tells her that while the CRM and Elizabeth doesn't, she wants this and Huck to succeed. To this end, Elizabeth had given Hope and Iris the map so as to "keep things on course."

Fed up, Huck promises that they are and turns away from her mother. Elizabeth accepts this and asks her daughter to get a good night's rest and to take her father's watch before she goes. Huck questions this, stating that Mr. Mallick had left them and Elizabeth, getting slightly emotional, tells Huck that he had left the watch for them and it had brought the two women back together safe and sound despite everything. Elizabeth suggests that it might again in the future.

In the present, seeing a fallen sign in the middle of the road, Huck purposefully swerves to hit it, damaging a tire and drives the truck off of the road, waking up the others. Huck begins backtracking the group to a location a mile or two back that she claims can act as shelter for them and which maybe has something that they can patch the tire with. Felix accepts this due to how cold it is. As they walk, Felix suggests to Huck that the group moving on without Silas and Elton might be karma. Huck is annoyed and asks Felix when he started believing in karma, but Felix doesn't respond.

In a flashback, Felix performs an intake interrogation on Huck soon after her arrival at the Campus Colony. Felix questions Huck about how she had ended up in Omaha, but she claims not to remember much. Felix asks her about the name "Huck" and she explains that it's a nickname, joking that "Scarface was taken." The interrogation is interrupted by Will Campbell who explains that he's there to do a security intake, but Felix states that that's what he's doing. Confused, Will tells Felix that he can stop and explains that he was assigned by Dr. Bavolar because Omaha Police had submitted Huck due to her being former military. Pouring a cup of coffee, Felix tells Will that he knows who she is as Felix has read Huck's file. Felix has been doing security clearances for four years now unassisted, but Will tells him that he doesn't have a doctorate in criminal psychology and a master's in behavioral psychology.

Admitting that he doesn't, Felix apologizes, recognizing why security would want a psych specialist. Will states that Dr. Bavolar thought that he and Felix could conduct the interview together and that it will help to have someone with Felix's experience in the room. Will and Huck introduce themselves to each other and Will states that Huck will be undergoing a battery of psychological tests. Huck asks if she can't "just blame everything on my mother and be done with it?"

In the present, Huck brings the group to a stop, spotting a small herd in the fog. Ordering Felix to hold his light steady, Huck shoots one of the walkers with a silenced pistol before Iris realizes that they are all caught in something. Looking around with her own flashlight, Iris sees that it's barbed wire as walkers surround them. Huck realizes that they will have to fight their way past and she orders the others to watch themselves as she and Felix deploy their S-Poles. Huck saves Felix when he falls into trouble while Hope and Iris are cornered by three walkers, one of which Hope stabs in the throat with her flashlight. Seeing them in trouble, Huck gets in close and takes out all of the walkers with one silenced shot. Felix then manages to clear the Endlings a path out of the herd and to safety.

The next morning, as they continue down the road, Felix wraps a cut on the back of his leg up in gauze. Although Huck expresses concern, Felix assures her that it's just a little slice from the barbed wire that the herd was caught up in. The Endlings reach the Red Maple where Huck breaks the door down and tells the others that the sooner that they can find something rubber and waterproof, the sooner they can get back on the road. Looking at a brochure, Hope comments that the place looks haunted while Felix guesses that it must've been evacuated, but he warns them that they still need to be careful.

The group splits up with Huck and Iris going to look upstairs and Hope and Felix downstairs. Iris hesitates, but follows Huck who notes that it sometimes feels like Iris is avoiding her. Iris admits that she's lucky that Hope found Huck and Huck suggests that Iris could've trained with them too, but Iris points out that she wasn't invited. Huck tells Iris that Hope had needed the structure and the discipline of their training, but that Hope was only ever into it because she wanted to sneak off to Omaha. Iris is surprised and hurt by this revelation, but quickly tries to cover it up. Huck notes how different the two girls are with Iris taking only weeks to get what took Hope months to get in training. Huck compares Hope to herself at 16, but states that Iris is who she had wanted to be: disciplined and principled. Huck claims to get what Iris was talking about during her speech on Monument Day about not trusting the Civic Republic, but she suggests that maybe Leo's situation isn't as bad as they think it is. Iris wonders why Huck thinks that and she claims that it might simply be easy to overthink things, especially for someone as smart as Iris. The two split up to keep looking, but Huck suddenly closes a door right after looking inside and quickly tells Iris that the room isn't for them and that the people who had lived there are dead inside of suicide. Huck then continues her search with Iris following after a moment.

After everyone finishes their search, Huck tells Felix that the Red Maple is a bust and they'll have to ditch the truck and go the rest of the way on foot. Huck insists that she's sure and, looking at a map, tells Felix that there's some mountainous terrain 90 miles northeast and asks if he's up for some climbing with his injured leg. With Felix stating that he is, Huck leaves to round up Hope and Iris and she tells Felix to meet them outside in five minutes.

Continuing their journey, the Endlings encounter a blockade made out of shipping containers and a bus. Seeing another one past it, Felix tells the others that they should go around through an alley on the other side. However, Hope simply climbs over the front of the bus followed by the others. When Felix climbs over after them, Felix falls backwards due to his leg injury bothering him.

The group carries Felix back to the Red Maple where Hope is surprised by how bad Felix's leg was injured in the fall. Felix explains that it didn't and he'd nicked his leg on some barbed wire while fighting the herd while Huck adds that he rolled it when he jumped. Felix apologizes for hiding the extent of his injury, promising that it's not that bad and that he'd started on some antibiotics before they left just in case and he can handle the pain. Iris assures the others that it will heal and Huck suggests that the girls try to find something to keep it stable and keep some of the pressure off of it. Once Hope and Iris are gone, Huck takes a closer look and tells Felix that they both know that he isn't going anywhere for awhile.

Felix hobbles into the living room where Iris is looking at a map. Although Iris thinks that highways will be easier, Felix is intent on sticking with the original plan even though Felix knows that it's impossible for him to hike. Iris insists that Felix is still coming with them, but Felix tells her that they don't need him anymore and that Iris is more than capable of getting the Endlings the rest of the way without him. Felix believes in Iris and who she is becoming and the two start crying. Hope and Huck enter and Huck announces that they will leave first thing in the morning and that once they find out what's up with Leo, they'll be back for Felix. Felix and Huck hug and Huck tells him not to worry about this as they've got it. Felix knows that they do and he expresses his love for Huck, leading to a laugh between the two.

In a flashback, it's revealed that during the fight with the herd, Huck had secretly injured Felix's leg with her S-Pole in order to slow the group down.

As Felix says his goodbyes, Iris angrily storms out, calling it bullshit. Huck follows Iris, telling her that sometimes hard decisions have to be made, but Iris shouts that not only shouldn't this be a decision, they shouldn't even be discussing it. Huck orders Iris to take a hard look, stating that she'll see that her purpose is to find Leo. Huck insists that Felix is a danger to himself in the wild, but if he stays behind, he'll live. Iris leaves without a word.

That night, Hope wakes up a sleeping Huck and tells her that they have to leave right now. Iris won't leave without Felix who will only just slow them down. After a moment, Huck agrees and goes to grab her things.

The next day, Hope and Huck travel together towards the research facility and Huck offers to carry Hope's bag but she declines. Hope thanks Huck for believing in her, stating that she's stronger than she's ever been before thanks to Huck. Huck thanks her and asks for a second, walking away. Moving out of sight, Huck secretly pulls out a radio to check in with the CRM, but she instead makes contact with Elton. Elton tells Huck that he's with Percy who's hurt. Huck asks Elton to tell her where they are, but as he starts, Percy wakes up and stops Elton, revealing that Huck was the one who shot him.

Huck rejoins Hope and asks if she has any regrets about this. Hope promises Huck that she doesn't, but she looks less than certain.

In a flashback, after Iris wishes that she sometimes had a map to figure her sister out, Hope has an epiphany. By comparing the codes from the CRM codebook to longitude and latitude on a map, Hope is able to crack one of the messages and is alarmed to learn that it says "RAFT EMBED AGENT EN ROUTE TO NY WITH ASSET + FOUR. ALL FOUR EXPENDABLE." As a result, Hope realizes that Huck is actually a double agent for the CRM.

In the present, Hope reaches for Felix's gun which she has stolen.

"In This Life"

Hope and Huck walk down the road together and Hope raises Felix's gun as Huck tries to unjam her S-Pole. Hope demands to know who the hell Huck really is. Huck tries to talk Hope down, but Hope decoded the CRM codebooks and she now knows that Huck is actually a CRM agent. Although Huck calls this crazy, Hope continues to demand answers, asking if Huck is some kind of spy and if the story of how Huck was found "all messed up on that raft" was just a plan to get her into Omaha and pretend that she was somebody else. Huck insists that she's the same person that she's always been and promises that if Hope puts the gun away, she can explain. Huck states that Hope doesn't actually want to shoot her and hurt anybody else, not like the Night the Sky Fell when Hope's mother had died. In response, Hope shoots the ground next to Huck who puts down her S-Pole and tells Hope that even if Hope kills her, the CRM will still come looking for Hope.

Hope realizes that Huck has just admitted that she really is a part of the CRM which Huck confirms, but she points out that Hope knew that and she still came with Huck anyways. Huck suggests that it's because part of Hope knows that Huck is on her side, but Hope is unmoved, stating that she'd only come with Huck in order to keep Felix and Iris safe. The second that Huck agreed to come with her, Hope knew that she was "the asset, whatever the hell that is" and that Felix and Iris are expendable. With a grimace, Hope asks what the others know, but Hope tells her that they don't know anything so Huck and the rest of the CRM can leave them alone.

The argument is interrupted by the approach of a herd and Huck reminds Hope that in their training, she had told Hope that to survive outside of the safety of places like the Campus Colony, you have to make big choices quick and asks her what she's going to do. Looking around, at the approaching walkers, Hope hesitates as Huck insists that she needs to get her S-Pole and that she won't hurt Hope. After a moment, Hope shoots one of the walkers, but only succeeds in blowing off its jaw. Grabbing her S-Pole, Huck orders Hope to put the gun down as the sound will only draw more and to watch her back. With walkers closing in on her, Hope drops the gun into a ditch after a walker grabs her and draws her own S-Pole as Huck instructs her to use her training against the herd. Fighting back-to-back, Hope and Huck are able to eliminate the entire herd together.

In the aftermath, Huck expresses pride and admiration in Hope's skill before telling her that the gun is gone and they should keep moving. Hope angrily tells Huck that she'd thought that Huck had come to her as a friend and Huck insists that she did and that she cares about all of the group. Hope demands to know why the rest of them are expendable if that's true and Huck states that it was never supposed to be this complicated. Huck admits that Leo isn't in danger and he never was: Leo's last two messages saying that he was in trouble were actually from Huck. Hope is shocked by this revelation and Huck explains that she had thought that it was the easiest way to get Hope to leave the Campus Colony. The CRM had found out about Leo's secret messages and intercepted the rest so they took advantage of that.

Huck had wanted Hope to want to go, to see if she would, figuring that she was strong enough. Huck is confident that she was right about that and tells Hope that she had thought that Iris would try to talk Hope out of it so Hope would come to her and the two of them would go alone. Since Hope was convinced that the world was going to end, Huck taught her how to fight and she needed Hope to see what was worth fighting for: civilization and the future, the same future that the Civic Republic is fighting for. While they could've easily gotten Hope to the research facility, getting her to see the world right and that what Leo was working for was important was going to take a lot more. While it would've been easier if it was just the two of them, Hope has come to see why it is always about the big picture, the greater good. The CRM takes this stuff seriously because the world's future is at stake and having other people try to find out where they are, getting in the way of Hope seeing what they have to do to save it, wasn't going to work which is why the others were expendable. Getting emotional, Huck promises that she did everything that she could to split up the group without hurting anybody and Hope realizes that Huck was responsible for what happened to Tony and Percy. Huck explains that with Tony and Percy's truck and the maps, the Endlings were "two days away from knocking on the CR's door" and that with their location compromised, the CRM would've killed everyone. Huck insists that it was for the greater good and that killing Tony and Percy was the only way to save everyone else. Hope demands to know why the CRM cares so much about her, but Huck states "kid, you have no idea who you are" and continues on.

Huck tells Hope that they have to pick up the pace and Hope demands to know where they're going and why the CRM wants her. Huck states that Hope cracked a CRM cipher and it takes a special kind of smarts to pull that off. Hope states that the CRM are idiots and that she's not worth all of this, but Huck tells Hope that it's not just about her, it's about people like Hope and making sure that their gifts aren't being wasted. It will take a lot to bring the world back and people like Hope need to be a big part of that. Huck radioed the CRM that morning just after they left and they are sending a helicopter to meet them 15 miles away to take Hope to Leo. Hope asks what would've happened if things hadn't gone the way they did and they had just made it to the research facility. Huck states that it would've been easier, that Hope would've been happy that her dad's ok, the CRM would've asked her to stay and Hope would've stayed. Hope asks what would've happened if she didn't want to stay and if she doesn't now, but Huck is confident that she will and tells Hope that it will be dark soon and they need to find shelter. Huck warns Hope not to run and that while the CRM won't do anything to her, "but they'll find you. They always find you."

At night, Hope and Huck sit in an abandoned house and Huck offers Hope a birthday gift that she'd picked up while she was scouting ahead, but Hope isn't interested. Huck admits that while the mission is about Hope, it's also about Huck too and that there's a lot more going on than Hope knows, maybe more than Huck knows too. Huck reminds Hope of how she'd once told Hope that it was complicated with dads and adds that it's complicated with moms too. Hearing a vehicle outside, Huck blows out the lantern, but the truck stops and Felix and Iris emerge, having apparently seen the light from the road. Huck tells Hope that if she wants them to safe, Felix and Iris can't know they're there and that this is life and death and Hope needs to make another big choice.

Hope and Huck hide as Felix and Iris search the house before the two reveal themselves. As Iris checks on Hope, Huck feigns surprise at the two getting the truck working again. Iris confronts Huck, revealing that they had checked the room that Huck had tried to hide from them, the one that she had told them not to go into because there were bodies. Iris demands to know why Huck had lied and Huck tries to claim that it must've been a crossed-wires thing and that she'd never said that there were bodies in the room. Hope backs Huck up, claiming that Huck had meant the basement instead of the storage room and Iris must've heard her wrong. Felix points out that Hope and Huck had still left without even saying goodbye, but Huck claims that they had thought that it would just be easier with Hope adding that Felix and Iris are there now and they have the truck fixed which is great. They are all there, together and safe which are all good things, but Felix doesn't seem to be fully convinced. Huck suggests that they get some sleep and hit the road in the morning, offering to get Felix and Iris' stuff from the truck so that Felix can get off of his leg. Felix refuses until Huck tells Felix that he needs to trust other people to take care of him for a change and Felix lets Huck go move the truck around the corner.

As Huck calls Hope to give her a hand, Felix grabs Huck's gun and demands that she drop the key and tell him what she's doing with Hope. Dropping the key and putting down the lantern, Huck tells Felix to grab Iris, take the truck and go. Felix refuses, but Huck tells him that it's how he lives and she doesn't want to hurt him. Hope tells Felix to listen and that Huck is CRM, she wants Hope, he can't save her and walking away is the only way that he'll live, shocking Iris. Huck states that she doesn't want to hurt Felix and she just wants to him be happy, she really did. Felix demands to know if it's true and Huck admits it before attacking Felix, throwing him down the stairs, shattering the lantern and setting the house on fire.

Huck races downstairs and kicks away Felix's S-Pole, ordering him not to make this any worse. As the two fight and the fire spread, Felix orders Hope and Iris to take the truck and flee, but they refuse to leave him behind. As the girls make their way out, looking for Huck's gun, Felix retrieves his S-Pole and he and Huck duel with them. Felix refuses to walk away and continues the fight, wounding Huck in the arm. As the fight continues and moves outside, Hope finds and retrieves Huck's gun. Struggling with Huck, Felix urges Hope to shoot her and that it's okay, Hope doesn't need Felix to protect her. With a few walkers approaching, Hope shoots one of them while Iris puts the other two down.

Huck finally overpowers Felix and, after a moment of hesitation, prepares to kill him with her S-Pole, apologizing. Hope removes the silencer from Huck's gun and fires it into the air, catching everyone's attention. Hope holds the gun to her own head and threatens to kill herself if Huck doesn't get away from Felix. Huck backs off and Hope orders Felix and Iris to take the truck and get back to the Campus Colony as fast as they can, knowing that nothing is going to happen to her because the CRM needs Hope to help Leo with his research because of who and what she is. Huck's mission was to get Hope to the research facility and "I decoded the message. I'm the asset. Turns out I'm smarter than I thought."

As they prepare to leave, Felix tells Hope that it's not too late to change her mind and she can just give him the gun and Hope, Iris and Felix can just leave. However, Hope knows that the CRM will just come after Felix and Iris looking for her and that this is the only way. Seeing that he can't change her mind, Felix hugs Hope goodbye. As they watch Hope and Iris say goodbye, Huck tells Felix that he and Iris will find safety five miles north. Felix angrily tells Huck that Hope is just a kid, but Huck states that Hope isn't anymore and that sometimes in this life you've gotta do bad in order to do good. Holding each other, Felix and Iris watch as Hope and Huck drive away in the truck.

Hope and Huck walk into a nearby field where a CRM helicopter lands with Elizabeth Kublek and two soldiers emerging. Hope realizes from Elizabeth's presence and Huck's earlier comment about how mothers can be complicated too that Elizabeth is Huck's mother. Elizabeth greets Hope warmly and has her men take Hope's belongings from her.

Elizabeth privately congratulates Huck, noting that although they will need a bit more work with Hope, she's not fighting it at least. Huck reassures her mother that Hope won't as she knows what's at stake. Elizabeth asks about the loose ends, specifically the CRM truck and the others still out there. Having heard Elton's transmission, Elizabeth wonders what the Endlings know. Huck reassures her mother that the others that are still out there are not a threat, but Elizabeth states that she's taking care of them and the CRM has caught one of them and they'll get the rest. Huck is less than pleased, having wanted to ensure that the rest of her friends get back to the Campus Colony. Elizabeth tells her daughter that she didn't want to step in, but the incident back home before Huck left for Omaha has put her judgment into question, at least in the eyes of others. Elizabeth had to see that Huck bringing the asset to them was an unmitigated success with no loose ends, so she did and she is. Elizabeth states that they'll have to talk about the Campus Colony because a lot's happened since Huck left. Elizabeth leads Hope and Huck into the helicopter and they fly off together.

Season 2


The CRM helicopter carrying Hope, Huck and Elizabeth Kublek lands on an overpass in the ruins of Albany, much to Hope's surprise. Hope asks if the research facility is there, but Elizabeth tells Hope that there has been a change of plan. Emerging from the helicopter, both Hope and Huck are confused by this and, putting down an empty, Elizabeth states that this is a lesson or rather a field trip as she knows how much Hope hates school.

Hope demands to know if Elizabeth's promise to take her to her dad was a lie too and Elizabeth confirms that she's not taking Hope to Leo yet. Hope angrily confronts Elizabeth, reminding her that Elizabeth had given them the map and told them that the research facility was located in New York, pushed them towards the facility and lied about it. Cutting herself off and remembering something, Hope recalls Elizabeth telling her that she had gone to the Campus Colony alone and asks about what the other helicopters had been about. Elizabeth tells Hope that they are now ten years into the outbreak and both the continent and, as far as the CRM can tell, the entire world, have herds roaming through it which are now so big that they just break through everything, run through everything, including whole cities. The day after Monument Day, the CRM was on their way to Omaha and they saw a herd so big that they had never seen anything like it before, "it was unimaginable." Elizabeth claims that the herd had run through Omaha and was headed for the Campus Colony and while the CRM was coordinating the rescue effort, a second herd nearly as big merged with the first, forming a herd that must've been over 100,000 total. While the CRM had done everything that they could to save as many lives as they could, it wasn't enough. The CRM airlifted the few survivors out to Portland, but both Omaha and the Campus Colony have been destroyed.

Hope breaks down crying at the news, rejecting the stunned and devastated Huck's attempts to comfort her. Elizabeth offers both Hope and Huck her condolences, but Hope isn't interested. Elizabeth reveals that she brought them to Albany because it was her home when the world ended. Elizabeth had been working in Albany as an attaché for the UK Ministry of Defense when everything fell apart. She had realized then just how quickly the chance for a future can crumble, even when everyone does their best. Elizabeth wonders if Hope believes that a future is still possible and she admits that she did. Elizabeth states that Hope should because, despite all of the fallen cities, a future is still possible. Getting Hope to think differently and more positively about the future was why the CRM had pushed Hope to go on this journey. Now that Hope has seen how fragile civilization is, Elizabeth trusts that Hope is understanding that no one can make it on their own, it takes everyone coming together to get to that future.

Hope again brings up the fact that Elizabeth had told her that she was taking Hope to her father, but Elizabeth tells her that she hopes that she can. Much to Hope and Huck's shock, Elizabeth states that Hope isn't ready. For a community with a long-term plan predicated on generational education and scientific progress, geniuses are an invaluable resource. However, a genius who is a rebellious, strong-willed troublemaker is a risk. Used against the CRM, those qualities can spread like rot and make any kind of common goal unattainable and the CRM can't bring in someone who would jeopardize that. The CRM wants Hope to work with them and she has a lot to offer, but Elizabeth can't bring Hope to her join father until she knows that despite Hope's grief and anger, she is fully committed to being an asset to the future, to learning and furthering Leo's research and handing that knowledge onto the next generation. Only then will Hope be an asset to the future. While Hope insists that she's ready, Elizabeth believes that she needs more time to think about what she truly wants. Providing Hope with a radio and her belongings and S-Pole, Elizabeth states that she will need Hope's answer by dawn.

Hope is shocked at the idea that, after everything that the CRM put her through, she can just walk away and Elizabeth will let her. Elizabeth confirms that she's giving Hope that option, admitting that Hope would have every reason to given the extent of the CRM's manipulations. Hope shrugs off Huck's attempts to stop her, stating that she'll take her chances alone. However, Elizabeth warns Hope that, not only won't she be able to find her sister and her friends, she won't even be able to make it out of the city alone, never mind to any kind of a future. Being alive today is a gift and Hope can choose to waste it alone or she can fight for a future with others for others so that what happened in Albany and the 100,000 souls in Omaha and the Campus Colony won't happen again. While Hope doesn't have to like the CRM, she does have to embrace what they're fighting for and the choice is hers. Without another word, Hope walks away and Elizabeth calls after her that the Dunn Memorial Bridge is the only way out of the city. However, it's eight blocks east and Elizabeth doesn't recommend it. As Hope walks away, Huck angrily confronts her mother about doing this after everything that Huck did to get Hope here. Huck points out that Hope could die, but Elizabeth merely states that Hope could die or she could choose to join them and they need her to make a choice. Disgusted, Huck walks away from her mother, leaving Elizabeth looking out over the ruins of Albany.

That night, Huck impatiently waits with Elizabeth who asks her daughter if Huck is thinking of going after Hope. Huck reminds her mother that she had told her that they need Hope to keep Leo motivated, maybe even take over Leo's research some day. Elizabeth simply states that she had said that they could use Hope for those things and Huck demands if none of that matters anymore. However, Elizabeth tells Huck that it matters that Huck succeeds. It was Huck's idea to get Hope across country this way and she had insisted that Hope was worth the risk. Huck had convinced her mother that this trip was the only way to change Hope. While it did change Hope, it didn't change her enough. Elizabeth believes that with this little nudge, Huck's mission will be a win and it will all but erase what happened before Huck left. An unhappy Huck turns away and Elizabeth states that she's only ever wanted the best for her daughter. Elizabeth notes that Hope reminds her a bit of Huck at that age and she wonders if that's why Huck took her on. Huck explains that Hope was lost and angry and she had needed someone to look up to, someone to believe in her which Huck can relate to.

Huck asks her mother why she hadn't told her about the destruction of the Campus Colony and Omaha before when they met for the debriefing. Elizbeth claims that it would've only been a needless distraction that would've only made Huck's mission that much harder. It's easy to form attachments while being under for an extended period and blur the lines. If Huck wants to go after Hope, Elizabeth won't stop her. Huck asks about the others that the CRM had found and Elizabeth tells her that, based on the description that Huck gave them, the CRM believes it to be Silas Plaskett. Huck calls Silas an innocent who knows nothing and Elizabeth reveals that Silas has been interrogated, but he is stonewalling and they've gleaned nothing which is why they're focused on finding the others. The CRM needs to learn if the rest of the Endlings know too much or if they are still resolved on saving Leo and now Hope. If they do, the Endlings will need to be dealt with. Elizabeth asks how much they know about the CRM and the mission and Huck remembers Hope's work on deciphering the code books, fighting with Felix and directing him to safety five miles north.

At dawn, Hope is led to Elizabeth and Huck by two CRM soldiers who rescued her from the herd that had trapped her after Hope called Elizabeth. Hope admits that Elizabeth was right that Hope wasn't going to make it all alone, but she doesn't want this to be all that there is. Hope doesn't know if it's what Elizabeth wants to hear, but it's the truth and she asks if she passed Elizabeth's test. Elizabeth tells Hope that it's alright to hate the CRM and that she should, but that the bad things they do must be done and they carry that burden so that others don't have to, so there can still be good in the world and so that maybe some day this won't be all that there is. Elizabeth is willing to offer Iris and Felix a home with them since they don't have one to go back to which she imagines Hope understands very differently now. Elizabeth has the CRM soldiers lead Hope away. Once they're gone, Huck realizes that her mother had wanted to see if Huck would go after Hope, if Hope and the others had changed her. Elizabeth simply states that she's really glad that she was wrong and leaves followed by Huck.

Walking across the research facility's grounds with her mother, Huck tells Elizabeth that she's been thinking about Silas and what they can do with him.

Sitting in the detention area of the research facility, Hope is approached by Huck who asks how she's doing, having been diagnosed with a concussion by the doctor. Huck acknowledges that Hope has every reason to hate her, but if Hope ever wants to see Iris and Felix again, they need to get on the same page about something. Before they left Iris and Felix at the farmhouse, Huck had sent them to a settlement a few miles away from the research facility where the people will keep them safe. Huck had told her mother that Iris and Felix didn't know anything which will guarantee their safety if Elizabeth finds them as long as they don't divulge what they know. Hope asks what will happen if they do and Huck tells her that if the CRM knew that they had decoded their intel, knew that Huck had orders to take out Iris and Felix if that's what it took and let them live knowing that, she doesn't know what will happen, but she knows that they've killed people for less. Hope accuses Huck of only trying to cover her own ass and asks why she shouldn't tell her mother how bad her daughter screwed up her mission and screw with Huck's life just like Huck did with hers. Huck states that if she does, Hope could be putting a target not just on Huck's back, but herself, Felix, Iris and even Leo's if Hope tells him what really went down. Hope will have to lie to Leo about where Iris and Felix really are and what she knows, it's the only way that she can be sure that Leo will stay safe.

"You and me, we're just tiny pieces of a big mosaic, little players in the game that will be played out over decades, maybe centuries," comments Huck. Huck reassures Hope that the research facility is safe and good for everybody as long as they play by the rules and don't stir shit up. Hope wonders if that's a threat, but Huck states that it's simply how it is and she thought that Hope got that after the night before. Hope states that she got that she wanted to get to a future, maybe help work for one, but she is unwilling to work with the CRM to make that happen. Hope knew that she wasn't going to make it back there and the CRM was just her ticket out. Frustrated, Huck leaves, telling Hope that it's past midnight and Huck wishes Hope a happy birthday.


Silas' new boss Dennis Graham looks at an old picture of himself and Huck in their uniforms, revealing that Dennis is Huck's husband.

"Exit Wounds"

Huck makes love with Dennis, getting out of bed after he falls asleep.

Later, at breakfast, Huck plays with her wedding ring and Dennis asks if it was her mother's idea to send Huck off on a mission without telling him. Huck tells her husband that after what Dennis did and what she did to fix it, the mission was what Huck had to do to get past it. Dennis wonders if she means it or him, but Huck states that people got hurt and there had to be consequences. Dennis asks if his wife thinks that he hasn't been paying as Dennis got pulled from active duty and put on decontamination. Huck claims that it isn't for her to decide, but an emotional Dennis says that it is and that it's not his job that he's trying to get back, implying that it's his wife that he's trying to get back.

Outside, Dennis notes that things have changed around the research facility and the facial scar that Huck now has which Huck calls an occupational hazard. Huck asks about how things have been at the outpost and Dennis' new crew and he mentions his new worker, a, big, quiet guy that got picked up on a resource run. Knowing that Dennis is talking about Silas, Huck reassures her husband that he's in good hands. Dennis asks to have dinner when he comes back later to drop off an M998 and Huck agrees to think about it. As Dennis leaves, Huck notices that Hope has seen her goodbye with Dennis from a distance.

Huck sits in front of a military review board where Captain Betts announces that they have reviewed her two-year mission in Omaha and the Campus Colony. Despite some skepticism about the means with which Huck decided to deliver the asset, she did so successfully and with minimal expenditure. Most notably Huck's work in Omaha, some of which has been redacted in the board's report, has earned her full clemency and a letter of commendation from Major General Beale himself. Huck has furthered the priorities of the CRM and Betts congratulates her on being cleared to return to active duty at the research facility.

Outside, Huck is approached by Leo who she is pleased to see again. Leo tells Huck that he needs to talk to her about Iris and Felix who aren't where Huck said they'd be. Huck tries to reassure Leo that Elizabeth has teams out there searching, but Leo is aware that Elizabeth is Huck's mother. Leo tells Huck that he heard that Elizabeth isn't even searching and is instead off in the Civic Republic on official business. Leo angrily accuses both Huck and her mother of lying and of manipulating Hope into lying too. Leo wonders if brainwashing is part of how Huck got Hope to the research facility, but Huck insists that Hope is alive because of what she did and there and Iris and Felix will be too. Leo furiously states that his daughters and Felix had trusted her and were innocents and what Huck took from them they will never be able to get back. Leo doesn't care about how Huck justifies her lies, who her mother is or what name Huck gives herself, she needs to find his daughter. Leo leaves and, upset, Huck walks off herself.

Pounding on Huck's door, Hope demands to be taken to Iris and Felix immediately. Hope argues that it's been days and she's done everything that Huck has said and demands to know what Huck has been doing. Hope worries about what will happen if the CRM finds them first or what will happen if Huck's mother figures out what Felix and Iris know. Hope demands to know if Huck even checked to make sure that they made it, but Huck tells her that with the guards and patrols, it isn't as easy as Hope thinks. Hope doesn't care and she demands that Huck go and take Hope with her, knowing that Iris and Felix won't listen to Huck's warnings, pointing out that Felix probably wants to kill her. Huck agrees to go the next day, talk to them and take it from there. Hope asks why she can't go that night and, after shutting the stove off, Huck states that her first patrol shift isn't until the next day which is how they get there unnoticed while Hope notices two plates set out for dinner. Huck dismisses it as being just one day, but Hope reminds her that a whole city of people got wiped out in just one day. Hope knows that Huck talked to Leo and if Iris and Felix don't come back soon, he's going to start stirring shit up. Hope wants her family back.

At dinner, Dennis reminisces about their old home on the base and the two complement each other on how they look. Huck looks for something to change into before pausing and changing into her uniform. Huck asks if Dennis still has the keys to the M998 that he serviced before explaining that she had left because of what Dennis did, to try and come back from it. While Huck was gone, she had to do some things too, things that she hated doing. But because Huck left, five people are alive who would've been dead otherwise. Huck questions if that means that they're alive because of Dennis' mistakes and if that means that she should be okay with how things went and admits that she wants to be and maybe she will be. However, right now, Huck is still trying to figure it out. Huck sadly tells her husband that she can't be with him right now and she asks for him to give her the keys and not to ask why. Dennis sadly complies.

Driving the Humvee, Huck is stopped at the gates by Corporal Diane Pierce, Hope hiding in the back. Huck declares her reason for departure to be classified business for her mother. After checking over the paperwork, Diane introduces herself, telling Huck that she was transferred to the research facility after Huck's departure to assume Huck's responsibilities. Diane had worked closely with Elizabeth and calls her an inspiration which Huck agrees with. After checking the back of the vehicle, Diane allows Huck to go.

That night, Hope and Huck are escorted into the Perimeter by two guards, noticed by Iris, Elton, Percy and Asha. Seeing Huck outside, Percy grips his knife tight in anger.

"Family Is a Four Letter Word"

In a flashback, a battered Jennifer is found washed up on the shores of Omaha by Daniel and Margaret. Although Margaret fears that she's turning, Daniel recognizes that Jennifer is simply waking up. Daniel reassures Huck that while her arm is broken, help is on the way. Margaret notes that Huck seems to have "been through it" and who knows how long she's been floating down the river. Thankfully, the Omaha Police Department is quick. Daniel welcomes Jennifer to Omaha and asks for her name. Jennifer struggles to speak so Daniel tells her to save her strength and chooses what they will call her instead.

In the present, Indira greets Huck and Hope at the Perimeter. Indira notes that it's been quite some time since Huck last visited them and she asks what has brought her out so far. Hope notices Iris standing nearby and the two are reunited. Iris can't believe that Hope is there and asks if their father is with her, but Hope reveals that it's just them and Huck had to sneak her out. Hope reassures her sister that it's fine as Felix joins them and Hope hugs him as well. Huck comments that it's just like old times while Felix glares at her over Hope's shoulder.

Indira hopes that Huck isn't bringing them trouble, but Huck reassures Indira that she's not and that her mother doesn't know that she's there and she won't. As a gesture of good faith, Huck hands over her rifle to one of the Perimeter's guards as Felix hands in his S-Pole as well. Huck explains that she just wants to talk to Iris and Felix alone and Indira reminds Huck that the Perimeter hasn't seen bloodshed since its founding, and she wants to keep it that way. Both Felix and Huck agree, and Indira leaves them alone.

Once Indira is gone, Felix draws his knife, addressing Huck by her real name of Jennifer and demanding to know what she wants. Stepping between the two, Hope explains that what they want is for Iris and Felix to come back with them which Iris and Felix are visibly unhappy with. Felix demands to know why they would ever come with Huck, but she tells them that they wouldn't. Instead, she intends to take them most of the way and have Iris and Felix act like they found the research facility on their own.

Iris wonders what this is about, and Hope tells her that it's about being together, keeping Felix and Iris safe and keeping their father safe. Iris reminds Hope that she had said that Leo was safe, and Hope promises that he is, but Leo is worried, and Hope is worried that he's going to stir shit up if they don't bring them back soon. Leo could get hurt or worse and Huck states that the CRM is currently looking for them back at the retirement home. However, Felix reveals that Huck's mother was just there looking for them with soldiers and wonders if Huck is here now because she's using Hope to lure them out.

Huck insists that all they have to do is play dumb that she is CRM and about the code books and the fuel caches and they'll be fine. Her mother will take them in, and they'll be safe. Felix is dubious and Huck calls it just one more lie. Iris demands to know if Omaha was just one more lie too, surprising Hope that they know about it already. Felix asks if it's true that Omaha is gone, and Huck confirms it along with the fact that the Campus Colony has been destroyed as well. Huck states that the CRM couldn't mobilize fast enough to save either one, but Iris suggests that they were the ones who made it happen instead. Huck is surprised, telling Iris that it was a giant herd of empties, but Iris outright accuses the CRM of killing everyone and using the empties as a coverup. Huck is confused as to why the CRM would kill over a hundred thousand people when they are all about rebuilding civilization and bringing the world back and Felix demands that she tell them why the CRM would do such a thing. Huck calls Iris' claims crazy while Hope wonders if Iris knows something. Iris admits that she can't prove it, but she refuses to go anywhere with Huck.

Iris begins to walk away, refusing to say anything else in front of Huck. Hope insists that this isn't about Huck but rather their father, demanding to know if Iris doesn't want to see him. While Iris does, she knows that they would be idiots to go into the research facility without a way out, something that Felix agrees with. Huck asks them about Silas, drawing everyone's attention. Huck reveals that Silas is alive and at a culling and maintenance post not far from the Perimeter. Huck has made sure that Silas is being taken care of and promises Iris that if she and Felix come with them, they can see Silas too. Hope admits that this is the first that she's hearing about this, and Felix accuses Huck of lying to them. Huck insists that it's the truth and that she hadn't said anything before as she didn't want to complicate things more than they already are. Huck implores Iris to come with her and Hope and see for herself, but Iris tells her sister that she wants to talk to her alone and Hope and Iris walk away. Left alone with each other, Huck tells Felix that she's taking a walk, but he stops her, refusing to let Huck go alone. Huck walks off, followed by Felix.

Walking through the woods, Huck stops and gets emotional as she prepares to tell Felix something that Leo and Hope don't even know, catching Felix's attention. Huck explains that her mother had sent a team out on a recon mission, and it went bad resulting in the death of Will. Huck knows what Will meant to Felix and she begins to offer her condolences before Felix cuts her off. Their discussion is interrupted by the approach of an empty, confusing Huck as to how it got through the wall protecting the Perimeter. As Huck draws her knife and goes to deal with it, Felix knocks her to the ground from behind, knocks the empty to the ground and drags it to hang, snarling, over Huck's face, preparing to use the empty to kill her. Huck begs for Felix not to do it, pointing out that the CRM will come looking for her. However, Felix intends for Huck to be found bitten and turned miles away, "another dead asshole roaming the Earth." As the empty comes close to biting Huck, Felix finally relents and throws it off of her. Curb stomping the empty's head, Felix declares that he's not going to kill Huck tonight, he just wanted to know what it's going to feel like when he does. Telling Huck to enjoy her walk, Felix leaves.

Walking alone, Huck pauses to admire one of the Perimeter's sculptures, unaware that a vengeful Percy is taking aim at her with Huck's own rifle. Seeing this, and unable to bring himself to shoot Percy with his bow, Will instead runs between Huck and Percy, revealing his survival to her and alarming Felix who witnesses this and runs over as well. Huck is shocked to see Will and he explains that they had to make the CRM think that he was dead in order to throw them off of his trail. Will reveals to Huck that the CRM were trying to kill him and that they'd killed Romano and want him dead. With Felix and Will blocking his shot, Percy leaves.

Will explains that he was onto the truth about Omaha which is why the CRM had tried to kill him, to cover up what they did. Huck believes that the CRM was just trying to keep Omaha quiet until they got Hope to the research facility and so that Leo wouldn't think that his family was there, but Will isn't buying it. With Huck refusing to believe that the CRM could be behind the destruction of Omaha and the Campus Colony, Felix wonders if she's just blind or really that stupid. Huck insists that if the CRM had destroyed Omaha, it would've gone through her mother who would've told her. Felix tells Huck to open her eyes to the fact that her mother is lying to her. Huck has spent her whole life lying to everyone around her so what makes her think that her mother is any different. Unable to come up with a good answer, Huck states that the sun will be up soon, and she needs to find Hope and go. Felix refuses, worried that Huck will tell the CRM about Will's survival, but Huck promises that she won't. While they have every reason to hate her, like it or not, Huck is the closest thing to a friend that they have in the CRM.

Hope says goodbye to Felix and Will, asking Will to look after Iris and Felix. Now aware of the CRM's attempted murder of Will and believing that the CRM had destroyed Omaha and the Campus Colony, Hope confronts Iris about not telling her the truth about it which changes everything. Iris insists that she had wanted to tell Hope and that maybe she should've, unsure of why she didn't. Hope asks if there's anything else that she should know and, with a glance at Huck, Iris shakes her head. Hugging Hope, Iris promises that they will get Hope and Leo out and asks Hope to tell Leo that they're okay and not to worry. Hope wishes that she could and leaves with Huck.

As Huck enters her mother's office, Elizabeth gives a video address to the Civic Republic and Portland honoring the fallen part of the Alliance of the Three: Omaha and its Campus Colony. Elizabeth calls the tragedy that befell their sister city an immeasurable loss that reminds them just how precious each and every life is. Elizabeth claims that as the CRM's emissary to Omaha, she feels this loss very personally and deeply. However, now is not the time for doubt or to question their resolve. Now more than ever they need to stand strong and united as one alliance. Elizabeth states that the Civic Republic and its military are forever bound to Portland as Portland is to them. On behalf of Major General Beale, Elizabeth pledges to the citizens of Portland and the Civic Republic that these tragedies will serve as a clarion call for the CRM to stand even more firmly resolved, ready to fight for their survival and the survival of their alliance and for the survival of humankind. As they pray for the souls that they've lost, the CRM says to their allies in Portland to stay strong and vigilant and may God bless them all.

As the camera is shut off and the lights turned back on, Elizabeth takes a moment to compose herself. Spotting her daughter, Elizabeth asks if she was watching, hoping that she didn't come across as nervous. Huck reassures her mother that if she was, Elizabeth did a good job of covering it up. Elizabeth admits that "it's been a bloody awful, difficult three days" and apologizes for not making it to Huck's reinstatement. Elizabeth had gotten called to the CR on an urgent matter at the Civic Republic Health and Welfare Center which is handled now. Huck asks her mother how many people had actually survived in Omaha and if she has their names. Huck reminds Elizabeth that she had said that they were airlifted out, but Elizabeth counters that that kind of confidential information is above a Staff Sergeant's rank. Huck clarifies that she's not asking as a Staff Sergeant, but Elizabeth sharply shuts her down. "You only just got back. What you lost after a horrendous error in judgment, I would hate for someone to think that you haven't learned your lesson," Elizabeth states before she walks away. Left alone, Huck remembers scarring her own face while Felix's words challenging her mother's honesty ring through her head. Huck begins having doubts about whether or not the CRM was responsible for the destruction of Omaha and the Campus Colony as Iris, Felix and Will had insisted.

In a flashback, Huck enters her cell in the Health and Welfare Center after scarring her own face. Elizabeth is alarmed by what Huck did, but she simply tells her mother that the raft's ready and the team's waiting and Huck asks to just get this over with. Agreeing, Elizabeth tells her daughter that she's going to miss her and to always know that she loves her. Laying Huck's arm out on two cinderblocks, Elizabeth signals a CRM soldier who uses the butt of his gun to break her arm.

In the present, Huck breaks down crying over the memories.


In a coffee shop, Huck reads the Civic Republic Tribune. Huck looks around, seeing her mother walking by outside. Dennis places a cup of coffee in front of Huck, commenting that it looks like she could use it. Dennis explains that he's dropping off some work orders and compliments Marjorie's coffee. Huck quips that she heard they started brewing actual coffee and thanks Dennis for the other night. Dennis sits down and Huck admits that she probably should've led with her thanks. Huck clarifies that she's not just thanking him for the truck, but also for trusting her and Dennis reminds his wife that they're still married. Dennis used to know exactly what she was thinking to the point that he could tell where things stood with just one look. Now Dennis just has to trust her instead and Huck sadly states that it's all different now.

Looking at Huck's newspaper, Dennis comments that civilian oversight of the military was always going to happen. Part of the Founding Compact was that it would happen in ten years. However, no one knew what ten years later would look like. Dennis thinks that after the destruction of Omaha, they are back at square one. Huck wonders why the civilian government is pushing for it so hard when they trust the military and Dennis tells her that while they should, there has always been friction between the military and the politicians, but they've all bought into what they're doing. However, Huck is no longer quite so convinced about what the CRM is doing.

The next day, Huck sneaks into her mother's office and searches through it for clues, finding a picture of herself, Elizabeth and Huck's father. Putting it away after a moment and unable to find anything in Elizabeth's desk drawers, Huck tries to access her mother's safe without success until, remembering the picture, she has a sudden thought and tries a combination related to her father and successfully opens it. Going through the safe, Huck finds transmissions about something called Project V which she reads with mounting shock, horror and anger. Leaving, Huck encounters Corporal Diane Pierce who tells her that Elizabeth is looking for her and Huck follows Diane out.

As Elizabeth reenters the surveillance room, Huck, who has been watching the interrogation through monitors, comments that the CRM finally found them and asks if that's why her mother wanted to see her. Elizabeth asks if the place that Huck left Iris and Felix at had medical supplies which Huck confirms. Elizabeth asks if Huck still stands by her belief that they aren't a threat and Huck states that they won't be happy finding out who she really is or that Huck faked Leo's messages, but when they realize that Hope's there and they don't have a home to go back to, it'll help to keep things in perspective. Elizabeth decides that they will need to keep a close eye on the group and their trust will need to be earned. As Diane enters the room, Elizabeth asks if Huck wouldn't agree that trust is everything between people and, when she agrees, Elizabeth reveals that Diane said that she found Huck in Elizabeth's office. Huck simply states that she was curious if her mother had lunch plans and, smiling, Elizabeth asks if she does now.

In Huck's apartment, as Huck cooks them lunch, Elizabeth tells her daughter that she's glad that they're doing this as Elizabeth is going to be leaving again on some official business with Major General Beale. Huck apologizes for questioning her mother before about Omaha, claiming to be exhausted from the weight of everything. Huck suggests that being undercover for so long had taken more out of her than she thought. "Secrets, lying to everybody all day every day." Elizabth states that she can only imagine and that she tends to favor the tough side of tough love, but she only hopes that when Huck has her own child one day, she will understand what you will do to protect them in this world, make them stronger so that they can do the excruciatingly hard things that need to be done to protect the world from itself. Elizabeth reminisces about happy summer memories from when Huck was a little girl. Although Huck can't remember, both mother and daughter wish that she did. Getting emotional, Elizabeth tells her daughter that Huck was so gentle and trusting then that she couldn't bear the thought of anyone else destroying that in her before changing the subject.

As Leo prepares to open the door to the teaching lab in search of Lyla Belshaw, he is stopped by Huck who insists that they need to talk now, and she wouldn't be coming to him if it wasn't life or death. Entering a storage closet, Leo gives Huck less than one minute to explain herself. Huck doesn't know what Hope has told Leo about Omaha and the Campus Colony, but she shows him coded CRM transmissions proving that the military brought in the empties that overran both locations. Huck points out that the letters and numbers aren't a part of the CRM code and Leo recognizes them as the coding system for test subjects. Huck doesn't know how it all fits, but some of the people killed in Omaha and the Campus Colony were being used for research, research that Huck thinks is still being done right here in the research facility. Huck needs Leo's help to figure out what the hell's going on and who's involved so they can stop it.

"Who Are You?"

In Leo's lab, Iris asks Huck why the CRM would wipe out two whole communities, if it was for the research or if the research was just part of it. Huck states that that's what she's trying to find out, but Felix points out that Huck was a mole in both places and if anyone would know, it's her. However, Huck reminds Felix that she'd told the Endlings that she was just a part of a standard observe and report mission, at least until it became about Hope. Elizabeth Kublek was the one who oversaw the Civic Republic's dealings with Omaha and the Campus Colony while Huck was nobody. Percy is doubtful, asking Huck if shooting him and killing his uncle was her call while killing everybody else was her mother's. Huck admits that while only Major General Beale could've authorized something this big, her mother would've seen the order.

Leo asks if Huck has any idea why the CRM would do such a thing and she tells the others that, even before the CR formed the Alliance of the Three, they kept their location hidden in order to make sure that everything within its borders was kept at a statistical balance such as resources, food and population and something like an influx of people or a potential for conflict would jeopardize what they've built. Huck guesses that "someway, somehow, Beale must've thought that Omaha and the Campus Colony was a threat to that balance." Iris presses Huck to tell them where the Hidden City is as proof of her honesty, but she refuses, stating that she came to Leo for answers, not the other way around. Huck tries to take the coded transmissions and leave, but Leo snatches them back, telling Huck that he needs more time and that if she wants answers, they stay with him. Huck agrees and starts to leave, but turns back, telling the Endlings that having Indira turn them in was smart. However, she warns them that whatever great escape they think they've figured out, they haven't, and she leaves.

In the lobby, Jadis catches Huck's attention, surprising Huck with her presence at the research facility. Jadis explains that Huck's mother had brought in to perform a security audit in Elizabeth's absence and tells Huck that they've been through too much for Huck not to call her by her first name rather than Warrant Officer Stokes. Having heard about Jadis moving up, Huck asks if she's good just being a cop which Jadis confirms, stating that she's taking great satisfaction in investigating corruption, ineptitude and betrayal. Jadis asks if Huck has seen any, but Huck just tells her that Jadis had potential as an actual soldier. Jadis jokingly comments that that hurts coming from the woman who trained her and taught her what's worth fighting for. Jadis hopes that they get to catch up a little while she's there and that she doesn't have to arrest Huck. Huck reminds Jadis that Jadis had told her that the last time that they saw each other, but Jadis claims that she's serious this time before they both chuckle.

Jadis has heard about Huck coming in from the cold and is glad that she's okay, although Jadis knew that she would be. Jadis reveals that she knows about "Plaskett and Carlucci and the Bennett sisters and the boy with the corduroy. I know about all of it." Jadis sees the whole picture as that's her job. Huck asks what Jadis sees, and she tells Huck that she sees her mentor, the most dedicated soldier in the CRM who would slash her face and breaks her limbs for the cause. With Elizabeth having loaned Jadis her office, she invites Huck to come by later to have a drink made at a new distillery in Ward 8. After exchanging a little more banter, Jadis leaves to find the weak links that she's searching for.

Felix approaches Huck to break into Lyla's lab which she refuses to help him with as it's way too dangerous and they're dead if they get caught. Felix reminds Huck that she wanted answers and she had told Leo that she wanted to stop what the CRM is doing. Huck states that she had wanted Leo to give her his take on the research, but Felix reminds her that he did, and Huck doesn't just get to drop this in someone else's lap and walk away. Like it or not, Huck is in it now and Felix asks for their best way in.

In a security room, Huck prints Felix a key card that officially puts him in the system as Leo's security detail. It won't give Felix much access, but it does give him an alibi if someone asks why he's there. Huck provides Felix with an S-Pole that he recognizes as hers and Huck explains that Felix's S-Pole is still in lockup. Sitting at a computer, Huck begins trying to either transfer Lyla's access onto her own key card or find a way to copy Lyla's card. Felix had thought that this was Huck's area of expertise, but Huck points out that she's a soldier, not a hacker. Felix calls Huck a mole, not a soldier and asks if all of the lying and killing was worth it to her for the greater good. Huck asks if Felix thinks that she wanted to do those things and finds that she has insufficient clearance to get the access that they need. Felix asks about just breaking in instead, but Huck tells him that all of the labs are grouped together with researchers working at all hours. Looking at a board of keys, Felix suggests that what they're looking for might not be in Lyla's lab at all: if Lyla is hiding something, she'd be smart to keep it somewhere else that's private. Huck checks the key card access logs and finds that Lyla makes daily trips to Sublevel 7 Sector C-24 which, aside from the biocontainment unit, has nothing down there. Exchanging a look, Felix and Huck realize that this is what they're looking for.

As the two make their way down to Sublevel 7, Felix notes that it seemed like Huck had done that with the access logs before. Huck comments that if she had, they probably never would've met. Huck reveals that her assignment in Omaha wasn't just some call of duty, it was about getting back in the CRM's good graces. Felix wonders what she did, and Huck reveals that she had tried to cover for her husband's screwup, surprising Felix with the fact that she was married, but Huck corrects him that she still is. Huck tells Felix that Dennis was a Master Sergeant on the fast track, a golden boy who had some demons like everyone. Huck and Dennis were leading their team through some training maneuvers with empties when things went south. Dennis made a tough call and people got hurt, but Huck's opinion is that Dennis actually saved lives with his call. However, Dennis had been drinking and there was going to be an investigation so Dennis promised that he would clean up his act if Huck just took some of the heat off of him. Huck went on record saying that the call was hers and not Dennis', the camera that they used to document the exercise was messed up so the CRM brought in the tape to salvage it as evidence. Late one night, Huck slipped into the tech room and made sure that they couldn't, but she forgot to wipe the key card logs and got caught. Felix asks why Huck did it and she tells him that she loved Dennis and maybe she still does.

Reaching the door to Sector C-24, Huck tries and fails to open the door with her key card. Huck decides that she has to cut the power to this part of the security grid. While there's a backup generator, it will take at least two minutes to kick in which means they only have that long to do everything that they need to. However, the transformer's clear across the compound and is too far away to get there and back in under two minutes. Felix decides that they'll split up with Felix going to cut the power and Huck remaining behind to see what she can find. Huck provides Felix with an earpiece to keep in touch, but cutting the power is her job. Felix thinks that it's so that Felix is the one in danger if this all goes wrong, but Huck logically points out that she knows where everything is and how to cover her tracks while Felix would be flying blind. When Felix continues to hesitate, Huck reminds Felix that he's the one who came to her, so they have to play by her rules. Felix asks what she would do if he doesn't, walk away and keep burying her head in the sand. Felix wonders if Huck would be alright with that after everything that she's done, but Huck points out that what the CRM did wasn't her and that nothing they do tonight will bring those people back, so she is willing to walk away. Huck asks if Felix is and tells him to wait for her go "or don't," before leaving while Felix stays behind.

Huck makes her way to the enclosure holding the generator. Opening a breaker box, Huck grabs a pipe and tells Felix that she's in place. Preparing his stopwatch, Felix tells Huck that he's ready when she is. Jamming the pipe into the breaker box and yanking, Huck blows the generator, knocking out power to the research facility and setting the generator on fire. Huck orders Felix to go now as she watches the lights go out and Felix enters the unlocked door. Hiding behind the generator, Huck listens to various patrols reporting in over the radio as the power begins to come back on. Jadis calls for Huck to report in as CRM soldiers rush to investigate the burning generator. Huck quickly makes her escape from the generator enclosure.

Later, shuddering from the cold, Felix begs Huck to respond to him and tell him that she's with him just before Huck finally opens the door for him. Felix demands to know what had happened to Huck, having thought that she had abandoned him. Huck guesses that the walls must've interfered with the comms and the backup generator kicked in early. Huck explains that she had to reprogram her key card so that she could open the door manually for him. Huck needs to go wipe the access logs so that she doesn't have a repeat of two years ago on her hands, only a hell of a lot worse this time. Felix shows Huck the vial that he stole, telling her that whatever it is, there's a hell of a lot more of it and Felix will get it to Leo. Huck asks Felix to keep her posted before telling him that she doesn't know how this is going to end or what's going to happen to her, "but for whatever it's worth, I am with you. At least until I can't be." Felix nods in agreement, finally accepting that Huck really is on the Endlings' side as she heads off.

Huck enters Jadis' office, asking why Jadis was looking for her. Jadis states that she was just checking on that drink and, amused, Huck asks if Jadis really used the comms for that. Jadis tells Huck that she's a determined woman when it comes to her friends. Jadis was worried when Huck didn't respond and Huck claims that her radio died when she keyed it. Looking at the still flickering lights, Huck comments that the short in the grid didn't help. Pouring Huck a drink, Jadis brings up what she did to get into the Civic Republic six years ago now. Huck knows that Jadis was a rescue and Jadis tells her that she was living by her wits in the wilderness and created a little society quite quickly which Huck has no trouble believing. Jadis comments that if you want to create a society from scratch in a hurry, you give them their own language and a little theater to live in and they'll make that theater real. It will bond that society, separate from everyone else. Huck recognizes and Jadis confirms that she was ambitious even when Jadis was just a survivor. However, Jadis truly loved her people, and she lost them because she made the wrong alliances. Huck gives Jadis her condolences and Jadis tells her that she was sorry about what happened too.

Afterwards, Jadis had an opportunity, and she created a ticket to get into the Civic Republic by giving them something very valuable and Jadis got a new life. Jadis had safety for the first time in years, but her purpose was gone until Jadis realized that it wasn't: her purpose had just expanded. Jadis' purpose was still to survive, and she had gotten good at it with everything that she had been through. Huck notes that Jadis is still an ambitious survivor, moving up. Jadis tells Huck that it's not just about moving up, she knows that the Civic Republic is the last light of the world, and her purpose is to create a new era on this planet and it's Huck's purpose too. Huck confirms that it is, but the way that Jadis keeps saying it makes Huck wonder if Jadis really believes it.

Jadis reveals that Huck's mother asked her to keep an eye on Huck while she's here. While it was couched as a mother's worry, Jadis wonders if Elizabeth thinks that Huck may have been out there too long, that Huck's formed some bonds and become a different person. Huck states that Elizabeth doesn't and Jadis is wrong. Jadis suggests that, alternatively, she's right about Elizabeth and Elizabeth is wrong about Huck and the theater that helps you survive is hard to let go. Jadis reveals to Huck that "before the world ended, my name wasn't Jadis. But that name, that identity, it helped me live, so Jadis is who I am." Jadis calls Huck stronger than her and stronger than most people. If Huck's mother is concerned that Huck is confused, it might be understandable. Jadis suggests that they can help Elizabeth prove that she's not, addressing her as Huck. Stating that her name's not Huck, she wonders if she is Jadis' investigation. Jadis confirms that she's there to investigate a few things and if Huck was one of them, it would be easy. Jadis could help her prove that she's still herself and Huck can help her by talking up how wonderful Jadis is to anyone who will listen as Jadis needs a promotion before the end of the year. Once again calling Jadis an ambitious survivor, Huck reminds her that she's bled and broke her bones for the corps and done everything she could to prove what she's made of. Pouring another drink, Jadis acknowledges that Huck has, without a question, done a lot, but there is always more.

"Blood and Lies"

Jadis leads Huck through the research facility and Huck asks if Jadis is going to tell her what's going on. Jadis notes that Huck looks tired and asks if she had a late night, but Huck tells Jadis that she got dressed in a hurry as the agent that Jadis sent had told her that something was going down. Jadis explains that there was a security breach during the power outage the night before and Huck asks where the breach was. Jadis states that it was in an area that houses sensitive research material, and she called Huck in as she has been apart from this place which may help Jadis to see things that others may miss. It also makes Huck uniquely qualified to take point in this part of the investigation. Huck is surprised that Jadis wants her to take point and Jadis tells her that something valuable is missing and she wants to know if someone took it, and she needs it back. Jadis would like to see if Huck can help her with that. Entering the interrogation room, Huck is surprised to find Leo.

Under interrogation by Huck and Jadis, Leo insists that he doesn't know anything about any missing research, and he refuses to answer any more questions until his security detail is there. Jadis tells Leo that Felix is there, but he won't be joining them. Leo cites how the Science Exchange Agreement stipulates that he's not to be denied access to his security detail, but Jadis reminds Leo that it also stipulates no unauthorized communication in or out of CR jurisdictions which Leo violated on 16 separate occasions. With each being punishable by long terms of imprisonment, Jadis suggests that Leo give the CRM a pass on having Felix sit in an adjacent room.

Jadis asks where Leo was the night before between 7 p.m. and midnight and looks to Huck to continue with the questioning. Noting that Leo is in a relationship with Lyla Belshaw, Huck asks if Leo had seen her at all last night and Leo admits to inviting Lyla over to meet Iris and that Hope was with them. Huck asks about "Elton" and Felix and Leo states that Felix was with Huck on patrol. Huck asks what time Lyla showed up and Leo hesitates to answer. After some prompting from Huck, Leo lies that dinner was at 7, but Lyla got caught up in some work and showed up an hour later. Huck asks if Leo dated much after his wife died and he admits that he didn't which both Leo and Huck acknowledge that she already knows. Huck wonders what it was about Lyla that Leo found so special after ten years of being a single father. Under Huck's prompting, Leo calls Lyla someone who was smart and kind and would laugh at his jokes. Leo was able to tell Lyla things about himself and stories about his family, the smallest things. Lyla would absorb every last detail like she was part of the family, like she wanted to be a part of it and so Leo wanted her to be a part of it. Huck points out that it sounds like Leo loved Lyla and Leo admits that maybe he did. Jadis notes the past tense and asks if Leo had fallen out of love with Lyla. Leo claims that Jadis is twisting his words, but Jadis points out that Leo did that himself before leaving with Huck.

Leaving the interrogation room, Jadis asks for Huck's opinion. Huck tells Jadis that she thinks that Jadis is right: Leo loved Lyla, but he doesn't anymore. However, Leo had Lyla over for dinner so that she could meet the family and Jadis wonders what Huck makes of that. Huck admits that it doesn't add up and Leo's lying, but Jadis points out that Leo and Lyla's stories match so Lyla's lying too. Jadis wonders why they would be sharing that particular lie, and Huck suggests that Lyla still cares for Leo, so she's covering for him because Lyla thinks that Leo took the research. If Lyla's right, it would explain why Leo fell out of love with her. Lieutenant Frank Newton approaches with two soldiers and Jadis orders him to have her team find and collect Lyla as they've found their conspirators.

Jadis interrogates Leo who insists that he's not working with Lyla to cover up anything. However, Jadis tells Leo that it's obvious that he is, and Huck helped her to see it. Jadis tells Leo about something interesting that she had read in his file, that Leo had confided in Lyla about Hope's gifts and Lyla went straight to Elizabeth Kublek with it. Leo is shocked by this revelation and Jadis suggests that Leo doesn't really know Lyla.

Frank enters the interrogation room with Lyla who is carrying the missing vial. Lyla presents the vial to Jadis who dismisses all of the other soldiers aside from Frank and asks where she found it. Looking at the vial, Lyla decides to be honest and tells Jadis that Leo stole it with the help of his daughters and his security detail. The group became suspicious that she was involved in classified experiments and took it from the storage freezer. Jadis has Frank take the vial from Lyla who apologizes to the furious Leo, telling him that there's no more lies and deceit. Lyla had thought that she could manage this to everyone's benefit, and she tells Jadis that she can't hurt Leo who is too valuable as they need him, and Leo can help with Project Votus. Interested, Huck asks about Project Votus and, over Jadis' orders not to speak, Lyla explains that it's a project that studies live test subjects through death to further research on reanimation. Leo is shocked as Lyla explains that this is what's she's been hiding, and Leo now knows the truth.

Lyla tells Jadis that Jadis is now going to let Leo go as Lyla thinks that she's on the verge of a significant breakthrough: her test subject is going on a full eight hours without reanimating. Jadis calls it rare, but not unheard of, but Lyla thinks that this could be the step forward that they've been waiting for and with Leo helping her openly and passing on that knowledge to his daughter, they could make a lot of progress. Lyla insists that they need Leo and Hope's help and Jadis states that in the position she holds, Jadis has proven her use to the CRM by making the right deals on their behalf. Jadis believes what Lyla says and per Elizabeth, Project Votus is the ultimate priority. Jadis tells Leo that the deal is that Leo will walk today and get away with another capital crime as will Hope, Iris and Felix and in return, they focus his efforts on Project Votus. Glaring at Lyla, Leo reluctantly agrees and Jadis asks if Leo is motivated, and can he move past all of this and see what he's doing for what it is. Leo states that he can and that what it is is "saving what's left. Whatever it is." Jadis tells him that it's a war of life versus death and it doesn't mean that some of them won't die along the way. Jadis orders Frank to release Felix and he leaves to do so. Jadis looks forward to seeing the fruits of Leo and Lyla's labor and she orders Lyla to stick around so that they can go see about her test subject after Jadis deals with some business with her team. It does sound like historic progress and Jadis would love to share the news with Major General Beale.

Entering Lyla's lab, Huck asks if her mother knows about this. Jadis explains that Elizabeth not only knows, but she founded the project with Beale eight years ago. Lyla states that it's been a lot of work over a long time and Jadis feels lucky to be here to see it if they have a major breakthrough on their hands today. However, with Lyla's timer reading 7 hours and 48 minutes, the three women find Barca reanimated. Examining the empty, Jadis comments that it's a shame that it didn't even break eight hours with Lyla having gotten Jadis excited about delivering good news to Beale today. Lyla insists that they can still crack this with Leo's help, but Jadis informs Lyla that Leo won't be helping her. Much to Huck's surprise, Jadis orders her to remove Barca's restraints and, drawing her gun, Huck forces Lyla into a corner and cuts one of Barca's restraints. Jadis explains that her job is to eliminate security threats and Lyla was sloppy with sensitive research and lied to the CRM. Thankfully, Lyla has already passed the baton onto her successor who is a man of greater intelligence with two easy to squeeze pressure points. Looking at Huck, Jadis states that Leo is the better bet and is easy to control when there's family to threaten.

With Jadis looking at her to act and Lyla begging her not to do it, Huck cuts Barca free and holds Lyla at gunpoint as she and Jadis escape into the observation area and lock the door. Banging on the door, Lyla pleads for her life before running around the room as Barca comes after her. "The rat will eventually get tired, but the dead won't. I couldn't have put it better myself," Jadis quips into the intercom, looking at Lyla's notes. Jadis mutes the intercom and Lyla's pleas for her life as Barca chases Lyla around the room and Huck and Jadis watches. Finally, as Lyla bangs on the glass, pleading, Barca catches up to her and bites into Lyla's neck, splatting the glass with her blood, killing Lyla whose body slumps to the floor.

Turning to Huck, Jadis calls it another tragic accident, stating that these things happen, and Huck realizes that Jadis knew from the start that Lyla was covering for Leo. Jadis states that Huck is still smart as hell and, if her mother had any doubts about Huck's allegiance, she'll be pleased that Jadis helped Huck put them to rest today. Huck asks if this was all about testing her, but Jadis tells her that not all of it was: it was clear from the start that Lyla was covering for Leo, and she had to go so Jadis used Huck to help her install Leo as Lyla's replacement. Calling it a productive day, Jadis feels that it's only fair that Huck should be debriefed on the entire scope of the project. Jadis wants Huck to be a part of it as she has earned it. Huck is surprised to learn that there's more and Jadis reveals that the destruction of the Campus Colony and Omaha are all a part of a tactical military operation. What comes next won't be easy, but it will secure their future for centuries to come.

Returning to her apartment, Huck removes her jacket and gun belt and turns on the light to find Percy sitting in a chair, waiting for her. Holding a knife with Huck's gun belt fallen at his feet, Percy tells Huck that he was looking for her earlier as Iris thought that Huck could help Leo. However, Percy overheard some soldiers talking outside of the security wing and, while they didn't mention names, it was obvious that they were talking about Leo and Felix and that Huck was the lead interrogator. Percy grabs Huck's gun and aims at her as Huck sits on her couch. Huck tells Percy that if he's going to kill her, then to do it. Looking at her gun, Huck notes that it's the gun that she shot Percy and Tony with before she used Silas' Wrench on Tony. Huck admits that they both know that she deserves Percy's revenge, but maybe he doesn't do it because Percy would just be doing Huck a favor by killing her. Huck points out that if Percy kills her, he likely won't leave this building alive. Huck reveals to Percy that there's something he should know and that there's nothing that Huck, or Percy, or anybody can do to stop it. Percy asks her what she means, and Huck reveals to him what Jadis had told her about the CRM's plans.

That night, Dennis is laying on his bed at the culling facility when Huck visits. Seeing how upset she is, Dennis hugs his wife and asks her what's wrong. Huck reveals the CRM's plan to wipe out Portland using poison gas that they've been storing at the research facility and using the empties to cover it up like they did in Omaha and the Campus Colony. Dennis is horrified by this revelation and Huck admits that she doesn't know why yet, but she does know that the plan is to kill 87,000 people with no way to warn them of the threat. As Dennis struggles to process the information, Huck reveals that she intends to stop the CRM's plans, but she can't do it alone. Dennis hugs his wife as she cries.

A short time later, as Silas returns from his guard duty, he sees Dennis and Huck standing outside. Dennis wishes that he'd known sooner, and Huck admits that she wishes a lot of things and that she should go. Huck pulls Dennis into a kiss and promises to contact him once she and the others have a plan. Huck starts to walk to her vehicle before stopping and walking over to Silas instead. Huck admits that they have some things to talk about and Silas tightens his grip around his kill stick in anger, apparently considering using it to attack Huck in revenge for what she did to him.

"Returning Point"

At the culling facility, Silas and Dennis help Huck load tools, weapons and explosives into a jeep. Dennis and Huck hope that it's enough and Huck warns that she's supposed to be on patrol, and she can't risk another trip out to the culling facility. Huck worries that Jadis could trace all of the supplies back to the facility and Dennis which he already knows, along with what happens to him if she does. Huck asks what will happen if she does, but Dennis simply tells her that he guesses that they'll figure out the after after. Huck starts to apologize, but Dennis acknowledges that they both have things to be sorry for, but no matter how this turns out, Huck is the one part of all of this that he doesn't regret.

Huck begins to leave, but stops when she notices Silas' glare. Huck reiterates to Silas that she didn't send him to Dennis because he's her husband, but Silas already knows that Huck did it because Dennis is a good guy. Huck tells Silas that he can hate her, but he's going to have to trust her as it's the only way that this works. Huck drives off with Dennis and Silas leaving moments later to make their way to the Perimeter.

In Huck's apartment, Huck rolls up a blueprint and tells Leo and Felix that, if things roll the Endlings' way, it'll be just enough to pull this off and get everyone out and someplace where the CRM can't get them. Felix wonders what happens to Huck if this works and she suggests that if she can get back to the Civic Republic, Huck can let the civilian government know what the military's done. Leo admits that Huck almost had him fooled the day before and Huck starts to bring up what Jadis had her do to Lyla. However, Leo reassures Huck that Lyla did it to herself and that if Lyla had to die at someone else's hands, Leo wishes that they had been his, but Huck tells Leo that he doesn't want that on his conscience.

Felix wonders how this plays out without the CRM killing Huck and Huck reveals that she is pretty sure that the empty that Jadis had her use to kill Lyla was a soldier that was tied to Omaha who had been trying to talk. If there's one, there's more, a resistance that can help Huck get to the people that she needs to talk to. It won't be easy, but Huck has to try "and who knows. Maybe in the end, it'll be me and Dennis, trying together." Felix silently acknowledges this, and Huck provides the two men with radios and guns, ordering them to wait for her go. Leo asks if they're all set up for them on the outside and Huck explains that Dennis and Silas are on their way to relay the plan to Indira and her people. Once they radio that they're on board, the Endlings will make their move.

Huck enters Jadis' office and Jadis dismisses the soldiers that she was talking to. Huck explains that she had wanted to see about the briefing that Jadis had promised her the day before and asks what's going on. Jadis explains that they were able to get some of the operational monitoring systems back online after the outage and shows Huck the diagnostics report from the last hour. Jadis reveals that the data shows a variance in key card activity and that water and power usage in the labs has dropped to almost nothing. Huck suggests that the data could just be scrambled from the outage, but Jadis is worried that Leo isn't keeping quiet about what he knows. Elizabeth Kublek's psychological profile of him had indicated that Leo would fall in line in order to keep his family safe and Jadis is starting to wonder if Elizabeth's report was wrong or if there are other variables at play. Huck doesn't believe that Leo would ever put his daughters in danger and offers to snoop around, but Jadis is way past that. If Jadis is right, and she usually is, then this is about stopping the rot before it spreads and showing Leo what happens to one or both of his daughters if he steps out of line. Jadis calls Frank Newton into the room and informs him that her team's ready when his is. Jadis and Frank move out with their men, leaving Huck alone in Jadis' office.

As the girls continue to pack, Huck calls for Hope, Iris and Felix over the radio revealing that they need to start everything now. Jadis and some armed guards are on their way to Leo's place to take everybody in. They need to get out and head to rendezvous one. Hope protests that they haven't heard from Will or Elton, but Huck tells them that there's no time. They need to start the plan and Huck will do whatever she can to help, but if their plan is going to happen, it needs to happen now.

In Jadis' office, Frank tells Jadis that they are still awaiting the final manifest from transport three, and he provides her with a list of everyone that has checked in for evacuation. There's no sign of the Bennetts, any of the civilian research staff or their security details. Frank suggests that it must be an error, but Jadis calls his comment cute and tells Huck that they now know that this goes far beyond the Bennetts. Jadis orders a full facility lockdown and for every door, window and vent to be closed off. Once the complex is secure, Frank is to sweep every inch of it until he finds where they're hiding. Acknowledging Jadis' order, Frank departs to carry it out.

Outside of the biocontainment unit, one of Frank's soldiers uses a listening device on the wall as Huck arrives, explaining that there's no signal down here and that Jadis is asking for an update. Frank tells Huck that the scientists have locked themselves in the biocontainment unit and that there's no way in or out, but the soldiers are picking up indistinct chatter through the walls and know that they're in there. Huck wonders why they're not in there yet and Frank tells her that the door is reinforced titanium and it sealed shut as a failsafe triggered by the lockdown. Blunt force won't get them in and they will have to wait for a full system reboot to override the lockdown. Huck wonders how long that will take and Frank admits that it will be at least two hours. Huck departs to let Jadis know, secretly smirking as she walks away.

When Huck returns to Jadis' office, Jadis is telling the person on the other end of her radio to let her know when they have an update on the server while Corporal Diane Pierce is talking to Brody outside. Jadis explains that Brody had approached long-range security asking to speak to Elizabeth. If Brody is to be believed, there's been a lot going on at the research facility that's off the books. To start with, it seems that Elizabeth has been diverting CRM medical supplies to Indira, but, more immediately, Indira and her people have become a threat to the security of the research facility and thus the Civic Republic. In addition, the intruder that the CRM had shot the other night that they had been trying to identify was Indira's son. According to Brody, Indira and the Perimeter have been actively working with the Bennetts against the CRM, harboring them and planting them inside in the complex in what's obviously some kind of escape attempt. Huck casts doubt on Brody's trustworthiness, but Jadis tells her that Sergeant Mills' team is on their way to deal with the Perimeter. Huck asks about an investigation, but Jadis feels that an investigation will take time and cause vulnerabilities. For a security threat such as this, CRM regulations state that any and all points of contact must be immediately removed. As Jadis walks away, Huck exchanges a look with Brody.

Diane enters with the update that Jadis had requested on the server and the two women depart, leaving Huck alone with Brody. Huck angrily confronts Brody, demanding to know if Brody realizes what he did to his own community, effectively marking them for dead. Brody claims that they were already marked and, since Indira made a deal with Elizabeth to save her own life, why shouldn't he do the same. Brody threatens to tell the CRM about how Huck has been playing both sides the whole time and demands that Huck promise him permanent residency inside the Civic Republic, and he will keep quiet. Huck insists that she can't, but Brody tells her that Huck has until Jadis comes back to figure out a way that she can. Brody pressures Huck to make the deal with him, but, disgusted by Brody's cowardice and unwilling to be blackmailed, Huck instead draws her gun and executes Brody with a headshot.

Drawn by the sound of the gunshot, Jadis, Diane and two soldiers reenter the room and, spotting Brody's dead body, Jadis dismisses her men and demands to know what Huck did. Huck tells Jadis that Brody was a rat playing angles and saying shit about the CRM being behind what happened in Omaha which he'd go screaming from the rooftops if Brody wasn't let into the Civic Republic. Jadis wonders how Brody could've known, but Huck claims not to know and that people like Brody are the real security threat. Huck suggests that, for all they know, Brody was lying about Indira and was using the CRM to settle some kind of a personal grudge. However, Jadis tells Huck that Brody was a threat and so is Indira.

Contacting Mills, Jadis orders him to put her on with Indira. Indira pleads with Jadis to call off her soldiers and take Indira while letting her people live. Jadis admits that she's impressed with the globe sculpture that Elizabeth had commissioned from Indira years before, acknowledging that the kind of welding involved is tricky which Jadis knows personally. "I was like you once. Leading a community of artists, but they never really stood a chance, as yours don't now," Jadis reveals. Jadis believes that larger, more powerful communities overtake smaller ones and that it's become their responsibility to. The larger communities are ascendant because they've adapted and equipped themselves for survival not just through might, but by seeing the world for what it is and what it must be. While Indira's vision is lovely, it doesn't portray what is. Indira doesn't and can't see it which is why the CRM can't let her people live. Making Indira kneel, Mills reports that the hostiles are secured, and his team is awaiting Jadis' orders. Huck objects that the Perimeter provides a valuable service to the CRM and are a resource, but Jadis orders Mills to kill everyone. However, with the help of Dennis and Silas, the residents are able to kill Mills and his team.

Later, after the escape of the Endlings and the scientists, Jadis tells Huck that they have to assume that Mills and his team are dead while the scientists were counting on the CRM initiating lockdown protocols. The scientists had known that sealing the containment door would buy them time to escape into the old mining tunnels, using explosives to stop the CRM from following them in. Jadis hands Huck a copy of the blueprints of the mining tunnels and Huck asks when Jadis had known. Jadis reveals that the facility's central server had confirmed it. Every bit of research has been wiped from it and the scientists are trying to take it with them. Jadis realizes that they aren't just dealing with an escape plan, but a rebellion and the Civic Republic stands to lose all of the progress and knowledge that they've built since the end of everything. Jadis worries that this could be the second end of everything.

Huck asks Jadis what her plan is and Jadis tells her that she has ordered Diane to station soldiers at every tunnel exit. When the Endlings emerge, the CRM will be waiting. Diane contacts Jadis to report that fireteams are moving into position and to ask for the rules of engagement. Jadis rescinds all arrest protocols, intending to make an example of the Bennetts. If Diane and her teams see them or any of the scientists, they are to shoot to kill. "Eliminate some to traumatize the many. They've been safe for too long. They've forgotten too much. This is an opportunity to make them remember," Jadis declares, much to Huck's horror.

"Death and the Dead"

In the aftermath of a series of explosions in the mining tunnels, Jadis attempts to contact her fireteams for a report. Corporal Diane Pierce reports that there have been explosions in tunnels 1 through 5, that they walked into a trap, and she has lost contact with the fireteams. Jadis asks Huck where the Endlings got explosives, but Huck merely reminds Jadis that they're scientists, implying that the group had created their own.

Leo calls in over the radio, asking to speak to Jadis. Answering his call, Jadis admonishes Leo for killing her men, telling him that their lives might mean nothing to Leo, but they had dedicated their lives to fighting for a future, a future that the Endlings are putting at great risk for every living person on the planet. Leo tells her that the trap was only for show, and they're prepared to escalate even further. Jadis states that Leo has crossed a very serious line, but Leo tells her that the CRM destroyed their home and an entire surviving city full of living people and then tried to hide that from everyone.

Leo announces that they're done with the CRM and that they're all leaving today. Jadis doesn't think that Leo is any position to bargain with her, but Leo reveals that they have Mason Beale, giving Jadis pause. After a moment, Jadis accuses Leo of lying as Mason had left on an evacuation transport with the other students. Leo holds up the radio to Mason who hesitates to respond before Hope pleads with him to. After a moment, Mason speaks to Jadis and asks her to get him out of there. Increasingly angry but unable to do anything but bargain, Jadis asks what Leo wants and he asks for the two biggest transport trucks that she has with full tanks of gas and no tricks.

Jadis asks where they plan on going and if Leo plans on abandoning his role in finding a cure and in someday saving their entire species. However, Leo reiterates that the CRM are murderers and liars, and the scientists are no longer willing to continue working for them. Leo promises that if the CRM lets them go, the scientists will find another way to save everyone eventually, even the CRM. Jadis questions if everyone with him feels the same way and if they are all so quick to abandon the safety and security that the CRM has given them. Jadis insists that they won't find that outside of the CRM's walls and that "there is no progress out there. Only death and the dead." Jadis tells Leo to ask Hope as she's seen it. Iris, Felix and Leo give Hope surprised looks, but Leo simply tells Jadis that she has 30 minutes to get the trucks backed up to the service entrance near Guard Gate 1 and while they don't want to hurt Mason, they're prepared to escalate, causing Mason to give a worried look to Hope. Jadis agrees to give the Endlings the trucks and, as Felix heads off to meet them, furiously congratulates on Leo on roping a lot of smart people into a breathlessly stupid suicide mission.

Huck asks Jadis what they're going to do now and Jadis reminds Huck that the entire point of her mission was to ensure that Hope Bennett understood the importance of a future. "She does. It sounds like they all do. Just not one that involves us wiping out their home," points out Huck. Huck asks if Jadis blames them for that and states that it's not her fault that the CRM couldn't keep a lid on their genocide.

After the departure of the trucks, Huck is surprised to find out that Jadis thinks that the Endlings are still there. Jadis tells Huck that they only saw two trucks leave which is what the Endlings had wanted them to see. The Bennetts' motives are based on a sense of justice and the CRM has already seen how far the group will go. If they found the vial, then the Endlings also found the chlorine gas and they wouldn't leave without trying to destroy it. However, they won't succeed in either destroying the gas or getting out of the facility alive.

Diane joins the two women and reveals that the western checkpoint has just called in a Code 6. There's a thousand empties incoming from the south southwest and they are only minutes away from a full breach. While it would've been spotted long before, the western patrols had been redirected to the tunnels and killed in the explosions. Looking out of the office window with a pair of binoculars at the approaching herd, Jadis orders Diane to divert them with disruption charges and to send all available teams to the western gates. If the CRM can't hold the line, they could lose everything.

As Hope, Iris, Felix, Percy and Mason approach the jeeps, they are confronted by several CRM soldiers, including Jadis and Huck. Felix quickly turns his gun on Mason, forcing Jadis to order her men to hold their fire. Hope and Huck exchange a look as Jadis orders Team Alpha to stand fast over her radio as they have the Bennetts where they want them. Jadis asks the Endlings to talk, just them, and gives Felix instructions on how to adjust his radio accordingly. Stating that the Endlings want out of here while the CRM wants Mason Beale, Jadis asks how they will do this. Felix tells Jadis that they will turn Mason over to the CRM unharmed once they're out which will only happen when she lets them drive off in the jeep. However, Jadis calls this unacceptable as they haven't shown her anything to make Jadis trust them with Felix telling Jadis that they don't trust the CRM either. Jadis points out that there's the CRM, the Endlings and a giant herd coming and challenges Felix to see who blinks first. Jadis states that the Endlings hadn't wanted to listen and now they are all in a no-win situation. Felix swears to God that he will kill Mason if Jadis tries anything and then Jadis is out of luck. Jadis reminds Felix that he will be too as the Endlings lose their leverage without Mason, causing Felix to threaten to kneecap Mason instead. Jadis understands that they're angry and blame the CRM for all of their troubles, but this is the outcome of their own actions, not the CRM's. Iris tells Jadis that the CRM didn't give them a choice, but Jadis thinks that they just don't understand.

Iris confronts Jadis about the CRM's lies and how they covered up their genocide of Omaha and the Campus Colony. Jadis tells Iris that this is the only world that she's ever known and is far too young to understand all that has been lost. Stepping forward, Iris furiously accuses Jadis and the CRM of murdering 100,000 people. Jadis tells the Endlings that all of those people were going to die anyway and the military had made the hard decision so that the civilians wouldn't have to. "Two years ago, the CRM's modeling revealed that the Alliance would soon become a drain on the Civic Republic's resources. Omaha, the Campus Colony, Portland... had become too reliant. They'd never be fully self-sustaining. So, it was only a matter of time before thousands faced a famine of devastating proportions. At best, those thousands would have died slowly. At worst, disease and conflict would have spread through the Civic Republic itself, and then? The light of the world... extinguished forever. Death wins. We made the choice to spare them that by ending it quickly for them so that there could be a chance for humanity to survive. What we did to your home was mercy," Jadis explains. The CRM made sure that all assets were extracted, including 10,000 children, and the greatest minds were sent to the research facility to contribute to scientific progress under the CRM's protection. Jadis insists that the people who died became an essential part of their study to stop reanimation and that their legacy will be stopping the dead from walking the world.

As Huck notices a CRM sniper moving in nearby, Hope demands to know what gives the CRM the right to choose who lives and who dies. Jadis berates the Endlings for looking at the world from their limited perspectives and criticizing the CRM when it is the CRM's work that made their very existence possible. The Endlings rant about injustices and unfairness while they compromise and possibly destroy the advances of the many that came before them. The CRM makes the hard choices so that other people don't have to. Jadis tells them to take a look around at their great plan at work and claims that all they're doing is stopping the march towards scientific progress and denying the world the path to its rightful future because the Endlings are mad at them for their actions. Jadis calls it cute if it wasn't so dangerous and pathetic.

With empties approaching from behind, Felix is forced to turn and shoot them. Headbutting Iris, Mason breaks free of Percy's hold and Jadis orders men to make one shot kills. As Percy races after Mason, the Endlings engage the CRM with Iris killing one before Huck suddenly turns her gun on the soldiers, killing the sniper and one other before holding Jadis at gunpoint and forcing Jadis to disarm herself.

After Felix kills the last two soldiers, Iris turns to find Percy dead, having been shot in the back of the head during the skirmish. As a devastated Iris cries over her boyfriend's body, Hope retrieves her sister's dropped gun and turns it on Mason. Hope accuses Mason of being responsible, but the unrepentant Mason blames Hope and her family instead. Hope angrily tells Mason that he only had to come with them, and everyone would be okay, but Mason states that it's what Percy and Iris deserved, and orders Hope to look at what they've done. Hope realizes that Iris was right about Mason, that he is just like the rest of the CRM and that he never cared. Hope blames herself for not seeing it sooner and for Percy's death and prepares to kill Mason in revenge as Felix puts down several empties and gets into jeep. Coming up beside her sister, Iris tells her not to kill Mason as she'd only be doing something to herself all over again. Remembering how she accidentally killed Amelia Ortiz on the Night the Sky Fell, Hope finally relents and drops the gun. Felix drives up and Huck orders them to go. After a last look at Percy's body, Iris climbs into the jeep and they drive off.

Left alone with Jadis, Huck forces her to move out of the way, exchanging a look with Felix as he briefly slows down while driving by. With empties swarming around them, Jadis guesses that Huck's mother was right about her, but Huck states that her mother has nothing to do with this. Jadis states that if Huck was gonna shoot her, she would've done it by now and reinforcements are on the way. Jadis offers to give Huck a 5 to 10 minute head start if she spares Jadis' life, suggesting that with Huck's skills, she might even make it. As Huck hesitates, Mason screams for help and Huck and Jadis notice empties approaching him. Jadis rushes to Mason's rescue and, making her choice, Huck shoots several of the empties approaching Mason before she runs out of bullets. Huck jumps into a jeep and drives off as Jadis puts down the remaining empties that have gotten too close to Mason. As the research facility is completely overrun by the massive herd, Jadis and Mason watch Huck go. Upset, Huck removes her hat as she drives off.

Arriving at the culling facility with her hair now loose for once, Huck is horrified to find the badly wounded and weak Dennis lying on a couch. Huck asks Dennis what happened, and he jokes that he got a little too friendly with a bullet. As Huck cries, Dennis asks what happened to her, but Huck doesn't respond.

Overcome by emotion, Huck makes her way to the culling facility's North Pads and breaks down in private against the cargo containers placed there, holding her wedding ring. Composing herself, Huck takes an interest in the cargo containers around her.

As Hope, Iris, Silas and Elton break their group hug, Huck calls out over the radio and Hope answers her. Stating that she thinks that she's found something, Huck asks if the others still have the C4. Looking at her bag lying on the ground, Hope confirms that they still have it and asks what Huck found and where she is. At the culling facility, Huck stands in front of a cargo container that she had opened, the missing chlorine gas concealed inside of it, giving the Endlings one last chance to stop the genocide in Portland.

"The Last Light"

At the culling facility, Huck anxiously checks her watch and worries about what's taking Hope, Iris, Silas and Elton so long to arrive. Huck knows that the CRM has to be looking for her and Dennis needs the antibiotics that Silas and Elton stole while she needs the C4. Dennis reminds his wife that the Endlings are having to fight their way through the herd and that she needs to give them time.

Dennis begins to reminisce about an old friend of his from the early days who would always talk about his family's cabin in the Smoky Mountains on the banks of the Pigeon River surrounded by huge pine trees. Huck states that it sounds nice and Dennis tells her that his friend had gone out on one of the first resource runs and never came back. Dennis has always wondered if his friend went AWOL, got back to his cabin and made his own happily ever after. Chuckling, Huck wonders if Dennis thinks that they can do the same and Dennis suggests that they could still have a life. Agreeing, Huck states that, after they blow up the Chlorine Gas, they can haul ass to the Civic Republic and expose to the government and the press what the military's done. Dennis calls it details, but Huck worries that even if they get in and find their way to the right people, that they might not be believed. Dennis reassures his wife that if anyone can pull this off, they can and they will take what they've got and make it work. Wiping away tears, Huck agrees.

Arriving at the culling facility, Hope, Iris, Elton and Silas are greeted by a relieved Huck who tells Elton that's it's good to see him, having not encountered Elton since the Endlings split up. Iris tells Huck that they had tried to radio her and Huck states that she had tried the same thing and that the CRM must be jamming the comms. Silas gives Dennis the antibiotics, stating that he grabbed as many as he could. Dennis thanks Silas for not listening to him, warmly telling his friend that what Silas did means a lot to him. Huck removes the C4 from Hope's bag and, pleased, congratulates the group on their success.

Elton asks else what they can do and Huck orders them to head back and meet up with the others. It's still going to be safest to move on foot and minimum safe distance is going to be about 3 miles once the culling facility blows. Hope worries about what will happen to Huck since the CRM knows that she helped them escape. Hope suggests that Huck can come with them, but Huck tells the group that the people inside of the CR don't know what their military's been doing outside of their walls and they need to. Huck and Dennis are going to see to it that they find out. Hope tells Huck to get there safe, a sentiment that Huck returns, stating that "for what it's worth, I'm proud of you. You're the future kid. Never forget that."

Elton urges the others to leave, but Silas hesitates after looking at the badly wounded Dennis. Much to everyone's surprise, Silas announces that he's going to go with Huck and Dennis instead. They are going to need someone to help them get to the Civic Republic and they need to get there and warn everyone. While the others say their goodbyes to Silas, Huck goes to set the charges on the gas.

A worried Huck reenters the warehouse and reveals to Silas and Dennis that the CRM's jamming is affecting the remote detonators as well as the comms and they have to find another way to set off the explosives. Dennis suggests that they might be able to rig something up, but Huck, checking her watch, worries that the CRM could arrive any minute. Struck by an idea, Huck asks her husband how far away his emergency weapons cache is that they were going to load up at on their way out. Dennis tells her that it's 3 miles away and that while he's not sure if they have any timers stashed there, they might. Huck acknowledges that that's the best that they've got right now, and Silas offers to go if they tell him where it is. Huck tells Dennis that he should go with Silas and Dennis states that they can be there and back in 20 minutes. Silas heads for the truck and Dennis asks what Huck is going to do. Huck tells her husband that she's going to stay behind and hide out if the CRM comes close and asks Dennis to be safe. Dennis simply reassures Huck that they've got this which Huck agrees with, repeating Dennis' earlier words that they take what they've got and make it work. After a final tender moment between husband and wife, Dennis departs in his truck with Silas.

Jadis' helicopter lands at the culling facility where she orders her men to sweep a nearby warehouse and to secure the cargo containers holding the gas. Noticing Huck's stolen jeep parked next to the main building, Jadis goes to check it out herself, only to have Huck attack her with a kill stick, knocking Jadis' gun from her hands. The two women engage in a brief fight before breaking apart and Jadis demands to know what Huck got out of betraying the CRM. Huck tells Jadis that they were supposed to fight for humanity, but there's nothing humane about the CRM's actions. Huck tosses Jadis her kill stick and Jadis states that Huck got nothing out of it then. Jadis tells Huck that she didn't live out there and lose a community that she made herself like Jadis did and so Huck can't appreciate what they have and can do.

Throwing a towel at Jadis and grabbing another kill stick, Huck resumes their fight, confronting Jadis about what the CRM did to Omaha. Jadis insists that they had no choice and that Huck's mother understood that. However, Huck states that her mother lost her way while this is who Jadis has always been. Huck recognizes that Jadis had traded someone to get into the Civic Republic and that someone's life was her ticket in. "People are a resource. I had someone special. I had an A, but I said that he was a B so he wouldn't end up in your mother's lab. I owed him that much. So, yeah, I traded someone to get into the city. And then I saw what this world could become, so I signed up. And now? Now I'm doing all the things that you couldn't," explains Jadis. Huck calls Jadis a murderer who has the blood of 100,000 people on her hands, but Jadis tells Huck that she's no more a murderer than Huck. To Huck's shock and horror, Jadis reveals that her observe-and-report mission in Omaha was to set up the genocide: the CRM was able to wipe out everyone in just one chemical strike because Huck had told them that the masses would gather in the plazas and the parks to celebrate Monument Day. One year later, the CRM knew precisely where to hit, all thanks to Huck.

The two women resume their fight, but as they lock kill sticks, Jadis draws a knife and stabs Huck in the side, mortally wounding her, telling Huck that it didn't have to be this way. Jadis takes Huck's weapon as she collapses to ground, mortally wounded. Looking down at her former friend, Jadis, apparently out of lingering affection, offers to finish Huck off or leave her to die alone if she wants. Huck tells Jadis that "there's just one thing I want. I have this gold watch. It was my pop's. One of the only things I have to remember him by. My mom, she likes to say it's the watch that brought her and me back together after things fell apart. I want you to tell her that this time, it won't. 'Cause now? Now it's going to bring me and my dad back together." Seeing the tan line on Huck's arm where the watch had previously rested, Jadis realizes that Huck has rigged up the watch as makeshift detonator and asks how much time she has. Huck doesn't answer and Jadis quickly drops the kill sticks and rushes outside, yelling at her men that the gas is rigged to blow, and they need to leave now. The three quickly depart in Jadis' helicopter before they can be caught in the explosion.

Left alone, Huck dies of her wound moments before her makeshift timer expires. The C4 detonates, destroying the chlorine gas, the culling facility and presumably Huck's body, saving Portland from destruction. Spotting the green mushroom cloud created by the explosion, a devastated Dennis realizes that his wife's dead. Dennis later tells Silas that Huck had always intended to sacrifice herself to destroy the gas and that she had only sent Dennis and Silas away so that they would be safe when the C4 detonated. In addition, both Huck and Dennis had known that Dennis' wounds are mortal, and they had simply found it easier to pretend that he was going to make it.

Rather than telling Elizabeth Kublek the truth about her daughter's death, Jadis lies that she had instructed her team to bring Huck to justice alive and unharmed, but Huck didn't give them any other choice but to kill her. Jadis also puts this story into the official report rather than reveal that it was her that had killed Huck in a fight. The death of her daughter causes Elizabeth to reexamine her choices and wonder if it was all worth it in the end.

At Dolsons, Hope uses the dark room to develop Elton's pictures from the Endlings' journey cross-country to New York, including the group photo of Huck, Hope, Silas, Iris and Felix at the high school.
