THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
Another couple of hours have passed and there seems to be something much more sinister coming to New York City than anyone could prepare for. As the eclipse is coming closer and the virus is spreading faster, it is obvious that the city is in grave danger. Eph and Abraham need to get on the same page as to what needs to be done to save all of the innocents around the area, but not knowing who they can trust will keep them from accomplishing their goals in a timely manner.
Dr. Eph Goodweather is on a mission to save his family before the virus becomes unstoppable around the city. Seeing that the FBI is staking out his soon to be ex-wife’s house, Eph is stepping carefully to make sure he can see her and his son before being captured. Kelly’s new boyfriend has a different plan however as he calls the authorities as soon as Eph walks in the door. Being arrested, Eph has to find a way to make the Bureau believe his story and put a stop to what is happening before it is too late. The agents in charge only know the facts that have been placed in front of them and will hold Eph on murder charges unless he will come clean about what he has done and where the other missing passenger bodies have been hidden from flight 753. Eph says he will come clean and take them to the bodies and although the agents are leery about his sanity, they accept and take Eph on a drive during the eclipse.
Dr. Nora Martinez is having problems of her own as she was able to escape the retirement facility with her mother before the virus was able to consume them all. With her mother suffering from Alzheimer’s, Nora is having a hard time keeping her own mind clear to what is going on and trying to make sure that her mother knows the danger of what is happening. When the FBI comes knocking at her door as well, Nora knows that she needs to take her mother to someplace safe as she will be hunted for the same offenses that her partner Eph is.
Gus has been called back into employment by Thomas Eichorst once again. Since Gus had taken a look at the box he was paid to transport across town from the airport, his old deal has been killed and a new one has been put into the place. Eichorst threatens Gus’ mother once again, knowing the ex-con’s love for her, he could get Gus to do anything when mentioning anything about her health. Needing to dispose of a body before it gets autopsied, Gus is met by Jim Kent once again and the two will have to work together once again for their master that they do not trust.
Vasiliy Fet is still shocked at what he has seen in the sewers and looking for some way to justify it in his own mind. Returning to his office, Fet finds that his co-worker and boss have become the same beasts he has seen under the city. Knowing that sunlight is harmful to them, Fet now knows one way to dispose of the creatures once and for all. Trying to return to his parents’ home and warn them to leave the city, Vasiliy is called out for his life choices by his father and is given nothing but grief. Fet knows that there is something horrible coming and tries to reason with his old man, but he will not be heard. Needing to find a way to protect himself, Fet leaves knowing that he will probably never see his parents alive again.
Kelly Goodweather is torn between her past love for Eph and current love for Matt when the two collide in her home. Knowing that Eph has had his problems in the past, she has never seen him act this way towards anything she has ever seen. Not knowing if she should trust him, she is angry at Matt when he took it on himself to have the doctor arrested before he could tell her his full story. Having this done right in front of her son, Kelly makes sure to make it known to Matt that he is just a guest in the household and he is not the one to make the decisions. The two end their discussion in a huff and head to work. With the cell phone service being spotty and the internet being down, there is no way for the two to get ahold of each other for the rest of the day. Kelly feels as if she treated the situation badly, but she has to think about what is best for herself, along with her son.
Finally, the eclipse has come and the plague will start to roam the streets. This is the event I have been waiting for since the show has come on the air and I am dying to see what happens to the city in the following episodes as you have seen the infected running the streets and hitting people with their stingers. With only seeing what happened on the street that Eph was on, it will be great to see how others have viewed this event as it seemed to open up the possibility all over the city for the infected to be running free. I am loving this series thus far, they have been able to set up all of the main characters and you know which ones you love, and which ones you hate and now it is time to get into the blood and guts of the story with the creatures running amuck and people either trying to stop the outbreak, or just survive another day. Stay Scared!
