After rescuing Datu from captivity, the survivors head back to the tower. Michael gets frustrated by questions from Kalani and Angel, along with directions from Burt while he goes through a different route back to the tower. The entrance was opened wide and the alarm is going off, trying to come up with ammo and weapons to get back into the tower. They leave Datu and Kalani in the Hummer with Riley while Angel, Saul , Michael and Burt head in, warning Riley to take the vehicle to the garage if they don’t get back to her in a set amount of time. They walk in to find the door to the stairwell wide open, heading upstairs, with Angel telling the others to keep a look out. On the way upstairs the smell of zombies fills the air and they hear banging on one of the doors.
They see a man in a suit banging on the door, Saul calls to him, not looking at them, holding his hands in the air with Burt pointing his gun at him. The man grumbles “help us,” but Burt feels nervous, not sure who it is while Saul and Angel say that it’s a guy named Paul. The man says “it’s Paul,” but Burt refuses to put his gun down, arguing with the soldiers that something doesn’t feel right. Paul turns around and Burt gets the shot off as Pegs gets out, pointing to one of the bodies saying that the dead body was Paul. The zombie gets up and takes off running, jumping out of the window and getting away as Burt hunts his room for ammo, getting the shot off but only getting him in the hand.
Burt states that it was the same zombie from the ambush site. Burt notices that his room was looted for ammo, trying to figure out where it all went. Datu and Riley make it upstairs to try and get him recovered. Pegs explains that the pin-striped man killed Paul after he got in, thinking that Lizzy was the one on guard duty. Lizzy tells Michael the events that lead up to the suited zombie getting inside. Saul sends her back to her apartment, trying to calm Michael down, with Pegs letting them know that Riley’s shop was looted, in addition to Burt’s armory. Kalani comes down and fills Michael and everyone in on some details that the same thing happened at the other tower.
With all of the soldiers arriving back at the tower shortly after the suited zombie gets in, the survivors lucked out. Only a few survivors were killed in the take over and all of the survivors locked themselves in their apartments when they realized one had gotten in. The smart zombies seem to be surprising everybody, being able to talk and understand what others are saying. Lizzy also says that she and Paul had told it the code to the door, which it took a few tries before it unlocked but was able to get in regardless.
The fact that it got away leaves the survivors and audience wondering when it will be back and whether this was a scouting mission or if it was intending on taking the location out. Kalani’s insight into a similar event will hopefully give the survivors better preparation and an ability to keep the tower secure. Also, with the food, medicine, and armory having been looted, there is now a need to figure out who stole supplies and why.
