Cori tells her Summer would be ashamed of how Maggie is acting. Sam screams for everyone and Cori leaves the room. Sam says Kristi is missing. They all volunteer to look for Kristi but Tabby says they need to wait till Madison and Spencer come back with the others. Sam runs to her room and looks at the window. Tabby goes to check on Sam but finds her gone and the window open. The next episode focuses on Sam finding Kristi. They fight off a group of biters but are cornered. They run into a hospital where more biters lie. They run throughout the hospital. Kristi is bitten by a biter, which Sam kills.
