This is the third episode of Scatter Season 2
Fish has a mental breakdown. Crops grow in the fields. Matt, Sebastián and Octavio search a campsite. An incident on the road causes problems
Luka bends down on his knees. He picks the strawberry plant and inspects the first one. It is ripe for the picking. He looks over to Jasper who stands above him
Luka: How do these look?
Jasper bends down next to Luka and looks at the strawberry. He plucks it from the plant, takes out a bottle of water and rinses it. He takes a bite, chews for a bit and swallows. He smiles
Jasper: Delicious. You have the rest
Luka takes the strawberry and takes a bite
Luka: Oh my god I missed these so much
Jasper: If we find more like that this week, I can make a strawberry pie that’ll knock your socks off
The pair watch as Tracy’s Hyundai rolls up and slows down. The other farmers, Harper and Deedee, look up and walk over. Jasper approaches the driver side
Jasper: …. What happened to Tracy? This is her car, right?
Dimitri: She uh… she didn’t make it. Eli’s bit himself. I’ll let Jenny tell you the rest in a meeting
Jasper looks to Eli
Jasper: What happened, bud?
Eli: One bit off my finger. I think I’ll be good to work tomorrow
Jasper: Take some rest. Come back in a few days
Luka: Strawberries are coming in nice
Eli: Wonderful. How are the other plants. The radishes, spinach?
Harper: Spinach is still in
Deedee: And the radishes are coming in strong
Eli: Good, good
Jasper: Head on in, bud. We’ll see you soon
The cars drive on by and turn into the Apex community. Once inside, the group is met by several eyes. Annie stands next to Hannah, Lindsay and Miranda, chattering about something. Sean and Gavin, on their way to work, stop by to talk Dex and Oliver. Eddie, Jack West and Basil drink some coffee and stand nearby. Dimitri and Eli step out and walk towards Dr. Hill’s office. Aaron, Nathan and Garrett get out of the car and head to the U-Haul to begin unpacking. Todd steps out and walks up to Jenny and Otis
Jenny: You’re back soon
Todd: And good day to you, too.
Otis: Why is Dimitri driving Tracy’s Hyundai?
Todd: Yeah uh…. That’s what I wanted to talk to Jenny about
Jenny: You can say it in front of Otis, too. I think I understand
Todd: Well, … Tracy did not make it. She was devoured after a swarm overran her and Aaron. Aaron got out. And uh… Bentley and Matt didn’t make it either
Jenny puts her hand in front of her mouth
Todd: You need to tell Kendall and Lindsay immediately
Phillip comes running up
Phillip: Todd! West uh… West didn’t make it
Jenny: Him too?!
Phillip: Gregory found us while we were there. Had a guy shoot West. We tried to save him
Todd steps out and walks up to Annie. The pair hug each other
Annie: I'm glad you're back. Come with me
Todd walks off with Annie. Leo walks up to Nathan and Aaron
Leo: What do you need help with?
Aaron: Can you help us take all the clothing bags out of Tracy’s car?
Leo: How was the trip?
Nathan: ….We’ll let Jenny tell you about it later
Leo: That bud, huh? Who did we lose?
Aaron: Tracy… Bentley, Matt. I think Tim West, too
Fish lays in the back of the U-Haul, silently sobbing and breathing deeply. He stands up and walks to the doors of the U-Haul and walks out. He walks up to the driver side door and sits in the front seat. Meanwhile, Garrett walks up to Eddie, Jack and Basil. Rick Conrad walks up to the three as well
Garrett: Fuckin’ crazy out there
Jack: How bad?
Garrett: Just… wild
Jack: Can you tell me everything later? I have to get to work
Jack turns and runs off.
Garrett: His brother got shot. I think he’s dead
Eddie: And you didn’t tell him?
Garrett: I didn’t have the heart to. Fish is broken right now
Basil: Someone’s gonna have to tell him
Garrett: I can’t do it though. Fish is still in the U-Haul crying with his brother
Just then, the sound of a truck starting hits their ears and they turn to find the U-Haul backing up. It turns once outside the gate and speeds off
Phillip: Shit! SHIT! That was the fucking U-Haul. God Dammit Fish!
Todd: Someone has to go after him
Garrett: I… I’ll do it! I’ll follow him and bring him back
Basil: You’re not going alone
Eddie: Rick and I’ll join you two
The four look at Jenny
Jenny: Just go! Get him back
The four hop in Garrett’s car and drive off in the trail of the U-Haul. Outside of Elizabeth’s office, Eli and Dimitri knock on the door
Dimitri: She better be in there
Elizabeth: Come in!
The pair walk in.
Elizabeth: One second, okay? I’ll be right back
Eli sits down while Elizabeth goes to the back. She sits down across from Kendall in a separate room
Elizabeth: So… I have news. You are pregnant. It’s your choice if you want to keep the baby or if you’d rather terminate the pregnancy
Kendall: I think I’ll keep it, but I’ll ask Bentley
Elizabeth: He should be back. Dimitri and Eli are here
Kendall runs out of the room and looks to Dimitri and Eli
Kendall: Hello fellas. Where’s Bentley at?
The two men look at each other, shocked
Dimitri: Um… Kendall. I don’t know how to tell you this. Ben… Bentley didn’t make it. He was shot and killed by the same people that took Niklas
Kendall holds her face and begins to cry. She turns into Elizabeth’s shoulder to cry onto
Kendall: >sobbing< Elizabeth… I … I’m gonna keep it
Elizabeth: Are… Are you sure?
Kendall: One hundred percent
Elizabeth: Then I think you should head home and lie down for now. Take the day off work
Kendall gets off Elizabeth’s shoulder and heads home.
Elizabeth: Dimitri, can you go to the school and tell Logan that Kendall will not be there today?
Dimitri: Sure thing
Elizabeth: Now… what can I do for you?
Eli raises up his and shows her his missing finger
Elizabeth: Shit! How did that happen?
Eli: One bit my finger off
She feels his forehead
Elizabeth: You don’t feel warm. I’m guessing the infection didn’t get into your system if it just came off. I think you’ll be fine
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Out on the road. Gregory’s group drives down the road back to the Yard. Gregory drives in front with Brooks, Lottie and the Murphys in his truck. Margot, Spencer, Julian, Izabel and Nils ride in the Chevrolet
Lottie: We left Miles behind, Gregory
Gregory: I know
Brooks: And no one put down Lulu
Gregory: I know
Rick: What will we do when we get home
Gregory: I don’t know
In the other car, Spencer drives with Julian in the passenger seat. Spencer slows behind a little bit, and is shaking. He tries to stay awake, but he is having issues. A crowd of walkers swarm out from the side of the road and onto the lane. Spencer swerves to miss them and overturns the car. It flips several times over and finally stops. Cosmo, seeing the destruction, stands in shock for a minute before tapping the window
Cosmo: Gregory! Gregory hold up. Slow down please. They…. They crashed. Slow down
Gregory does not listen. He speeds up. Spencer pushes the door open and crawls out. Julian does the same
Julian: The fuck was that?
Spencer: Wal… Walkers on the road. Still behind us
Nils pushes the door out and drags Izabel with him. He picks her up out of the car. Margot crawls out the other end. She is bloody and gashed up her stomach
Spencer: We have to move. Now!
The group stumbles along the road. Margot drops to the ground. Julian picks her up and helps her walk.
Julian: Spencer! She needs to rest. We just walked out of a car wreck
Margot: No… I can… I can continue
Izabel: And Nils… My legs work fine. You can put me down now
Nils puts her down, and the group continue to walk. Elsewhere, Matt leads Sebastián and Octavio through the area
Matt: I didn’t get your names
Sebastián: Sebastián Bernal. Or Bass. And this is Octavio Arévalo
Matt: And you’re looking for an Evan?
Octavio: Evan Curtis
Matt: Where’d you last see him?
Octavio: We went on a run… a week ago. Lost our car. Walking ever since
Matt: And he’s supposed to be where?
Sebastián: Campsite near this mall. By the woods
Matt: Then let’s head into the woods
The three walk into the woods. It takes a while, but they finally find the old campsite. It’s vacant. The three men run into the campsite and check the tents. Empty. Matt walks into a blue one while Octavio and Sebastián walk into two red ones. While Matt is inspecting, he feels a gun being placed on the back of his head.
“Drop anything you touched. Drop your weapons and I want you hands in the air when you walk out slowly”
Matt complies and walks out slowly
Matt: I can’t put my hands up. I only have one
“Funny. Turn around”
Sebastián: Evan! Don’t! He’s with us
Evan: Bass? Octavio?
Evan: Whe… where’s Lynne? Henry? Maria?
Sebastián: They didn’t make it
Evan: And who’s he?
Matt: I’m Matt Graham. I came across them after being run out of that mall. It’s overrun, so I suggest you move camp
Evan: Where to?
Matt: I’m from a place not far. It’s called Apex. I can bring us there. You can stay with us. It’s safe and secure. Lovely place. Lots of people, work to be done. Everything
Evan looks to the other two
Octavio: Me gusta la idea
Evan: Alright. We’ll go
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Garrett: How fucking far did Fish go?
Basil: I didn’t think a U-Haul could go that fast and far
Rick: It’s dark. We can stop and pull off to the side of the road.
Garrett: I’m guessing he’s going back to the mall
Basil: Hold up! There’s a truck up ahead
The group slows down and pulls up next to the truck. It’s the same U-Haul that Fish stole. Yet Fish is not in the driver side. The door is open and the truck is on. There are footprints leading into the woods and a light coming from the trees. Garrett leads the two others into the forest. Inside, the three find Fish digging a hole with a dead body next to it
Garrett: F…. Fish
Fish swings around with a shovel in his hand
Garrett: Fish… you need to come home. It’s not safe out here
Basil: Plus… we need the truck back
Fish: I… I need to t… to do this
Eddie: Would it help if we joined in?
Fish: No! It’s for me
Garrett: When you finish, will you come home?
Fish: I think so
Garrett turns to the others
Garrett: You three can take the truck back. I’ll stay here
Rick: Are you sure?
Basil: Good luck. Stay safe
The other two walk off and step into the truck. They drive back to Apex
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The morning arrives. Basil and Eddie arrive back at Apex and drop the U-Haul off by the gate. Inside the schoolhouse, Logan Schiff starts class up as normal
Logan: Good morning scholars. How is everyone doing?
Everyone: Good Mr. Schiff
Logan: Any questions on the homework?
One hand raises
Logan: Yes! Allison
Allison: Can you explain me...mor...ize? What is that?
Logan: Memorize? It means to remember. I want you all to remember what I gave you in case. Any other questions? Bradley?
Bradley: Is there gonna be a test on this?
Logan: There’s never any tests. We don’t need to test you. Piper?
Piper: Where’s Ms. Standish?
Logan: She is not feeling well. She’ll hopefully be back tomorrow. Chuck?
Chuck: When do we get to use the guns for real?
Logan: Maybe in a few weeks. You still have much to learn. Where’s Devin?
At the construction site, Devin Nelson stand next to his father watching him work. The other men work nearby. They each are piling supplies into a large box truck
Sylvester: Why’d you skip school, bud?
Devin: I’m too old to be in that class. Those kids are too young
Paul: You’re young too, bud. You need to learn these things
Devin: What if I don’t want to
Ruben: You need to be able to protect yourself. What if your dad is not around to help you?
Devin: I’ll run
Warren: You can’t always run. You sometimes need to fight
Devin: I can kill walkers. I’ve killed two before
Sean: It’s not just walkers
Gavin: It’s people, too
Devin: He won’t let us use guns yet though
Doug: You need to learn the precautions first
Scott: They're very dangerous
Devin: What about knives? I've used those
Sylvester: You need to be safe with that too.
Sylvester puts his hand on Devin’s shoulder
Devin: In time, Devin, you will learn. Give Logan a chance first
Ray walks out of his tent as Basil walks in to work
Ray: Basil! Where the fuck were you?
Basil: Helping Garrett track down Fish. He’s crazy ever since his brother died. Stole the U-Haul
Ray: You skipped work
Basil: It needed to be done immediately
Ray: Did you find Fish?
Basil: Eventually. He was digging a grave for his brother
Ray: J…. I don’t care. Just get to work
Elsewhere, on the road to the Yard, Spencer finally wakes everyone up after being on guard for hours. Nils notices something is wrong
Nils: Spencer! Something’s wrong! Margot is not breathing
The others run up to Margot and check her pulse. She died in the night from blood loss
Spencer: I knew we should have kept moving last night. We could have made it back. The walkers are very close behind. We need to leave now
Izabel: We can’t leave her to turn
Izabel’s words couldn’t be more true. Margot stirs and lunges for Izabel. Nils doesn’t hesitate and stabs the undead Margot in the head, inches before she reaches Izabel. He pulls the knife out and wipes it on his pant leg. He turns and joins Spencer on the walk back to the Yard. They don’t have to walk far, because they see Gregory’s truck moving towards them with another car following behind. They pull up in front of the four
Cosmo: I saw you crash while I was on the truck bed. We sped up to find a car to carry you back. Glad you’re alive
Lottie: Where’s Margot?
Spencer: Crash took her. She died in her sleep
Cosmo: Shit. Well, my dad’s driving the other car in case you want to ride with us, Spencer
Spencer climbs into the truck while Julian takes the passenger side of the other car. Nils sits behind him while Izabel sits behind Rick. Nils keeps his hand in the middle seat and Izabel reaches for it. She grabs his hand and looks at him, smiling. She reaches over and kisses him on the cheek. They hold hands for the rest of the trip home. When they arrive, Gregory steps out and is met by Lewis and Anthony
Lewis: You’re back sir! We’ve got things to tell you
Gregory: Go ahead
Anthony: Uh… Alex, Liam and Callum didn’t make it back. They were found executed
Lewis: And we had an incident involving rape and assault. Stephanie Key, the black girl, she was raped and attacked by Johnny and Richard because she was a lesbian
Gregory: Fuck. Let me deal with it
Lewis: It’s dealt with. Fighting ring and everything. Richard killed Johnny
Gregory: Good for you. So what’s the issue?
Lewis: Maine… he’s bisexual, came out yesterday. He killed Richard. Shot him in the head
Gregory: I’ll deal with this tomorrow. I’m fucking tired. We lost Kenneth, Lulu, Miles and Margot
Lewis: That’s… that’s most of the ‘B’ Squad
Gregory: We found those people from the Target. Killed a couple, lost Lulu and Kenneth and Miles to it. Margot died this morning. She turned
Lewis: I’m… I’m sorry to hear that
Gregory: I’ll call Maine in tomorrow. I want you to maintain control today. You did a good job Lewis. Keep it up
Garrett: Are you ready to come home, Fish?
Fish: No. I am not.
Garrett: Are you staying here?
Fish: No. I'm going to walk elsewhere
Garrett: I will follow you, Fish. I won't leave you
