The car stops and they all get out. Spencer tells Brett, Gavin, Dean and Sam to stay on watch while the others get more weapons.
Madison asks Spencer what he did before the apocalypse and he says that he was a police officer. He tells her that Paul was his partner and they escaped together. Madison asks if he had any family and he tells her that he didn't have a family. Madison says that she didn't know if Tabby (Anna Hutchison) was alive so she left with Joshua then when he died she was alone and that he's gone forever. Spencer apologizes for her loss.
The group decides to set up a camp to sleep for the night. Madison is sleeping and it shows her and Joshua (Dustin Milligan) sleeping in the bed and she hears a noise. She sits up in bed and goes to wake up Joshua but he attacks her she then wakes up. Trent asks if she's okay and she answers yes. Everyone then sits at the fire and Madison says that she wish that she could go back and become brave instead of being weak so she can save Joshua.

Gavin says that he misses being at work even though he hated being at work. Gabe says that he misses being a firefighter.
