Michael manages to read through Datu’s journal including the information written by Sam. He also tries to figure out the link between Kalani, Skittles, and the other tower. Angel asks Michael about how he escaped while Saul tries to set his arm in a splint, saying that he doesn’t want to talk about it yet. Kalani continues telling the other of the infection on Hawaii when they flew in to Los Angeles, getting taken from a hotel to the other tower. By the time he arrived, the convoy had already been hit and survivors defected for other places to search. They were overtaken within the three days he was there and woke up in the arena. Kalani lets people know that there were convoys around the area with different types of zombies, some that could run fast, others that could jump high, and more.
Michael gives Kalani a journal and tells him to write down what he can, and he’s put on guard duty the following day. Angel tells Michael and Saul that the reason he brought Kalani down was that he was already telling Kelly the details of the other tower, not giving them a chance to keep it from the other survivors. Kelly searches Lizzy and Riley’s room, trying to find the supplies under Michael’s orders. Burt shouts that he found a big stash of things in Tommy’s room, calling Michael down, asking Tommy where he got things. Kelly suggests that they kick Tommy out, but Michael sends him to take everything back to the tower, saying that it wasn’t everything that was missing from the shops. Pegs asks to talk to him in private as he sends Lizzy and Saul to search Kelly’s room. Pegs lets Michael know that people were talking about replacing him while they were gone on their mission. While Pegs doesn’t agree with them, she suggests that he try to do something fun for the tower, trying to increase the tower’s morale.
Kalani’s recount of the other tower gives the soldiers more of an idea of what they’re dealing with, should their tower be overrun as well. There are also descriptions of even more types of zombies in addition to the standard runners and the big zombie. Kelly and Michael seem to be reconciling their differences a bit, with Kelly backing his orders and trying to find all of their supplies. She seems to be following orders a bit better and simply trying to survive with the rest of the tower
It’s tough to figure out if there’s a reason behind her sudden support of Michael’s orders with everyone else talking about replacing him as the leader, or if she’s finally figured out that the rules are there for a purpose, even stating that they should kick her nephew out for having supplies in his room. Pegs’ talk with Michael seems to calm him down and realize that things need to be calmed down with the tower’s residents as opposed to having everyone stressed out.
