It was written by Alex Delyle & Calaya Michelle Stallworth and directed by Bille Woodruff.

Plot

Morgan searches for Al, only to discover that he's not the only one looking for her, and that his search may have put a target on his own back.

Synopsis

Someone interviews Al on camera. Al evades the interviewer's questions.

Al sifts through a bag of tapes in the SWAT van. A voice transmits over the radio. She heads outside to get a better signal.

Al puts on a gas mask and ventures off to find better reception.

Morgan finds Al's camera equipment in the SWAT van, but Al is nowhere to be found.

Morgan records a video for Al. He says the others told him that she had separated from the group while relocating to the submarine. He implores her to stop chasing stories.

After putting down a zombified Riley, Al overhears men on the walkie talking about reclamation. A chopper flies overhead.

Al races back to the van as the chopper touches down nearby. She enters the van and realizes her camera is missing. Morgan reunites with Al and asks why she separated from the group. Al dodges his question and says they need to leave before the soldiers return.

Al and Morgan flee. Morgan says he planned to rendezvous with Grace a couple of miles east. He again asks why Al didn't accompany everyone to the submarine. Al says she is meant to be recording people's stories.

In a flashback, Isabelle films Al walking through the woods.

In the present day, Al and Morgan come under fire as they near the rendezvous point. Al finally reveals that the soldiers are a reclamation team that's hunting down the pilot who rescued them from the nuclear blast. Al says the pilot went AWOL after the rescue.

In a flashback, Isabelle records more footage of Al. Al asks if they'll ever see each other again.

Al tells Morgan that she doesn't know where Isabelle is. Grace pulls up in a car. Al and Morgan get in and escape amid gunfire from the soldiers.

Grace parks the car in the woods after they run out of gas. Al offers to lure the soldiers away from the helicopter so Morgan and Grace can steal fuel and ammo for the SWAT van.

Al arrives outside a church. In a flashback, Al and Isabelle arrive at the church with plans to hide out together. Al asks when Isabelle is due back. In the present day, Al lures a walker away from the church.

Morgan and Grace walkie Al to report that they found fuel in the helicopter, but no ammo. Al admits that she knew the helicopter wasn't armed and urges them to go home to Mo.

Al radios the reclamation team and tells them she knows who they're looking for. She says that Isabelle told her everything about what they do and also gave her top secret maps and flight plans.

In a flashback, Al lies next to Isabelle on the church floor. She assures Isabelle that she understands the need for secrecy about her work.

Al tells the reclamation team that she'll give them the top secret maps and flight plans in exchange for an interview. She instructs them to meet her at the church in three hours and orders them to bring her camera. She's standing beside a cannon.

In the SWAT van, Morgan tells Grace that he never told Al he had her camera because it might have given her an excuse to leave. Morgan goes to try the engine after filling up the tank.

Al talks to a walker, rehearsing her meeting with the reclamation team. She yanks a trip wire attached to her leg, triggering the cannon. It shoots a cannon ball at the walker, blowing it up.

In a flashback, Al steps outside the church and sees Teddy's warhead launching into the sky.

In the present day, Al loads rocks into the cannon. She radios the soldiers and learns that they've captured Morgan and Grace.

The soldiers pin Morgan and Grace to the ground and threaten to kill them if Al doesn't reveal Isabelle's location. Al finally reveals that Isabelle is hiding in a cabin and offers to take them there if they release Morgan and Grace. Morgan and Grace resist the soldiers. Grace races to the van and runs the soldiers off the road. Morgan hops in and they flee.

In a flashback, Al and Isabelle say goodbye at the church. Isabelle leaves to rescue Al's friends. Al radios Daniel for his coordinates.

In the present day, Morgan and Grace drive to Al's location. A chopper flies overhead. Morgan radios Al to warn her that the soldiers are coming.

Al rigs the cannon as Morgan pulls up in the van. A walker knocks over the trip wire. Morgan fixes it as the soldiers approach the van.

Al threatens to fire the SWAT guns if the soldiers get any closer. Grace revs the van forward, prompting the soldiers to fire. Once the van is clear, Morgan fires the cannon at the soldiers, blowing them up into pieces.

Al, Morgan, and Grace drive off in the SWAT van. Morgan demands an interview with Al.

Morgan interviews Al—revealing him as the interviewer at the start of the episode. He asks why Al is striking off on her own instead of looking for Isabelle.

In a flashback, Al tells Isabelle that she can't join her. She ends the relationship.

Al tells Morgan that Isabelle wanted to be together. She explains that Isabelle gave up everything to save her friends, but that she couldn't give up reporting for Isabelle. She says she should never have become involved with Isabelle in the first place. They hug goodbye.

Al searches the dead soldiers for maps of drop sites. Morgan rejoins her, refusing to abandon her. Someone radios the reclamation team and requests Isabelle's location.

Al goes to the helicopter. Dispatch reports that the reclamation team is being recalled because they've secured coordinates for the target. Al tells Morgan they're going to find Isabelle no matter where she goes. Pretending to be a soldier, Al tells dispatch that she's en route to the coordinates. She starts the helicopter.

Al arrives at Isabelle's cabin and tells Isabelle that she wants to stay together, even if they are constantly on the run. Al destroys her camera and they kiss.
