Travis and Chris ride with Brandon's group. Chris sits in the cab with Derek and James, laughing at their cocky banter and joining in with their jokes. He spots a farm in the distance. Brandon's group drives to the farm to look for food and supplies. Travis pulls Chris aside and suggests they stay at the farm when Brandon's group moves on. Chris refuses, saying they need to stay with people. He follows Brandon to check out the barn. Brandon's group finds chickens inside the barn. Overjoyed, they begin chasing down the chickens, hoping for an easy meal.
Meanwhile, Travis notices several freshly marked graves outside the house and races to the barn.
Travis runs to the barn and warns the group that whoever buried the people in the graves is still at the farm. The farm owner walks in with a rifle. Travis insists they leave and let the man keep his farm. When Chris and Brandon's group refuse, the man begins yelling at them in Spanish.
With guns drawn on him, the farm owner shoots James in the leg after he snaps a chicken's neck. With tensions elevated, Chris promptly takes James's gun and shoots the man in the chest, critically wounding him.
Travis kneels beside the dying farm owner. He stares disbelievingly at Chris, who holds out his hand to Travis. Travis turns away.
In a recent flashback, James writhes in agony after a farmer shot his leg in the Baja barn. The farmer lies dead on the ground following Chris' fatal gunshot. Travis orders Brandon, Derek and Chris to stop James' bleeding while he finds something to stitch up the wound.
Travis runs to the farmhouse and finds gauze, scissors, and sewing supplies.
Travis sews the entry wound shut then rolls James over to sew up the exit wound. James screams in pain. Travis assures the group that James will get better with time.
Travis buries the farmer next to his family and makes a cross for the headstone.
Brandon, Derek, and Chris laugh around a campfire while feasting on chicken and beer. Travis checks in with James and asks him to rate his pain on a scale of 1 to 10. James is hesitant to admit he's in pain in front of his friends. Travis urges James to alert him if his condition worsens.
Travis pulls an unrepentant Chris aside and chastises him for killing the farmer and feeling no remorse. Chris defends his actions and warns Travis to be careful how he acts with Brandon's crew. "We need them," he says.
At the farm, a week has passed, and Brandon announces that they're moving on to their next location. Travis argues that James is not well enough, but James insists he's okay to travel. Derek says they're going to San Diego. Travis reiterates that San Diego was destroyed and asks Chris to back him up, but Chris says they never actually went to San Diego.
Travis finds the farmer's driver's license and carves the farmer's name onto the headstone. Chris tells him the group is waiting on him to leave. Travis snaps at Chris and orders them to wait.
Travis helps the others move James onto the truck. James winces but insists he's okay. As they start to drive, however, the pain becomes unbearable. James begs Travis not to tell Brandon, then passes out. Travis orders Brandon to stop.
That night, Travis overhears Brandon, Derek, and Chris discussing killing James. Chris points out that James isn't getting better. Travis insists he'll get better with time and that they can survive at the farmhouse long enough for him to recover. He grabs Chris' gun and refuses to let them kill James.
Travis guards James and informs him that his friends want to kill him. James explains that they had a friend, Troy, who became infected and made them promise to kill him before he turned. When the time came, however, Troy changed his mind. James says that he offered an apology to Troy before putting him down. Travis says this is different because James isn't dying, but James insists it doesn't matter as long as they think he's dying.
The next morning, Chris brings food to Travis in the barn and says he's afraid of Brandon and Derek. Travis assures him he'll be okay. They hug. Chris seizes the moment and tackles Travis, pinning him down. Brandon and Derek rush in. Brandon shoots James dead, despite the latter's pleas for mercy.
Later, Brandon and Derek load the truck. Travis, who is staying behind, desperately implores Chris to stay with him. Chris says he's better off without Travis, and says that he has adapted to the new world, whereas Travis hasn't. He leaves the farm with Brandon and Derek.
Travis buries James and then heads into the wilderness.
