This is the third episode of Scatter Season 2

Synopsis Edit

Fish has a mental breakdown. Crops grow in the fields. Matt, Sebastián and Octavio search a campsite. An incident on the road causes problems

Once Edit

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

Otis: Shit

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

Leo: Shit

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

Dimitri leaves

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: Sorry

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?

Octavio: Sí

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?

Garrett: Yes

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

Gregory: Shit

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
