Previously on Z Nation.
Welcome to Mexico.
La Reina awaits your presence.
I saw it.
You can't ask me to do nothing.
He kidnapped my wife, my baby girl.
I'm gonna do you a favor.
Shot them right there in front of me.
The zombie plague is over.
I have the cure.
Remember this day.
For it will mark the beginning of a Zero World Order.
I don't trust him.
One moment, doctor.
He tried to cheat you once before. Right?
One way to make sure your food isn't being poisoned Have your chef taste it first.
On second thought.
It is such a monumental accomplishment that the honor of the first dose should really go to you.
I can't. I wouldn't presume to take Oh, please.
I'm not worthy, my queen.
If anyone should have the honor of the first dose, it should be you.
Don't you think?
If that's what I thought, doctor, I would have said it.
Well then, doctor?
Do you need some help, doctor?
I mean I'm I'm fine.
[mumbling] I'm good.
What's in that box?
No. No. I have my own test.
No. I have Please! I have my own test!
Okay, that's enough.
He should've turned by now.
I can't believe it.
It actually worked.
[electric guitar theme music plays]
♪ Have mercy.
♪ Oh, have mercy.
[breathing heavily] I can see a world where humans dominate again.
And it is all because of one person whose strength and courage and loyalty Lieutenant Warren.
Because of you, El Murfi is brought to us.
Because of you, there is hope.
You gave us the future.
And so you must be honored next.
I don't know what to say.
Oh, you don't have to say anything.
My queen. Um, if I may, you will allow me.
Lieutenant Warren, you're right.
I would never have gotten here without her.
Would you please grant me the great honor of giving her the vaccine myself?
And save her life as she has saved mine so many times.
That is a beautiful idea.
I love it!
Don't worry. The sting will go away in just a second.
Mi Reina, please.
These people are outsiders.
You cannot trust them.
You cannot trust her.
You be very careful with what you say next.
I'm just trying to protect what I have what we have built.
She brought the assassin.
She wants to do you harm, Reina.
And I can prove it.
Just give me more time with him.
This is so unnecessary.
You're really trying my patience now.
Why were you trying to kill La Reina?
[gasping] I wasn't trying to kill her.
[gasping] I was trying to kill you.
You came to kill me?
What the hell, guys?
Are you feeling okay, Roberta? Is it working?
She didn't get injected, stupid.
That's exactly what I intend to find out.
What is really going on here?
I feel strong!
Do you feel strong?
We must give this strength to the rest of the world.
Hey, doctor. Murfi.
You make more of this miracle vaccine, huh?
We will not rest until everybody is safe!
I got Murphy. You guys find Vasquez.
Mi hermana! Come drink with me!
What is the matter with you?
All those Zeros out there, all the ones I just vaccinated, they're under your control now.
They're your new army.
Well then the plan worked.
No, it didn't.
The plan was not for me to get injected.
What a, what do you call it, a poetic turn of events.
Not if I can help it.
You came to kill me?
I've been looking for you since day one.
[gasping] You killed my family.
I kill a lot of people.
[gasping] My wife.
[gasping] My little girl.
You're gonna have to be more specific.
I'm Javier Vasquez.
I was DEA pre-Z.
I busted a couple of thugs, and as payback you killed my family.
You said you'd do me a favor.
Then you shot them.
My little girl.
Yellow dress, purple flowers.
She thought I could help her.
She thought I could.
All I can hear now is her screaming.
Please, daddy. Please.
I should've killed you too.
That explains why you're here.
But what about the rest?
What about Warren?
She didn't know.
Don't you lie to me!
She didn't know.
Did she bring you to kill me?
Do she bring you to kill me?!
I'm done talking to you!
Then what does she want with my queen, huh?
What does she want with my queen?!
[gasping] I'm done talking to you, you worthless piece of zombie sh1t.
You call yourself Escorpion.
You're nothing more than El Bicho.
You will never take anything from me ever again.
Put him in The Maiden.
Get him out of my face!
Some Texan paid over $200,000 for this before the apocalypse.
Can you imagine?
My guys took it off of him at the border.
You know, immigrants, they have to pay their way.
I have been saving it for a special occasion.
I think this is it, don't you?
Doesn't get more special than this.
To the end of the apocalypse and the return of humankind.
And to mi amor.
Because if he had not died during the apocalypse, all of this would not be mine.
It's all part of the plan.
It's part of the blessings of Santa Muerte.
A blessing in death.
Gonzalo He only wanted the power.
What do you want?
A new world.
Can't hate on that.
What are you doing?
You don't think I'd be stupid enough to create that mess without also being able to make an antidote, do you?
You mean the effects of the serum don't kick in right away?
No. There's still time for me to reverse the effects.
How long is the delay?
Well I can't say actually. Could be a gradual shift as different effects start to manifest.
They won't become your slaves right away.
Oops. Did I do that?
What the hell is wrong with him?
Jesus, Warren. Give a guy a heart attack.
Really? You could still have a heart attack?
Actually that's a good point.
Hey. Doctor Mengele.
Can I still have a heart attack?
Maybe. I don't know.
You see what I have to put up with? Get back to work.
Damnit, Murphy. I'm doing it. Leave me alone.
Check this out. Thirsty?
You think you're better than me?
You think you're somehow above all this?
I didn't kill anyone I didn't have to.
We're exactly the same.
I'm nothing like you.
Yes, you are.
We come from the same place, just a little turn of the wheel.
One step left instead of right.
And I'm in there and you're out here.
Maybe you were some kind of pure altar boy before the apocalypse.
But what about since then?
At least your wife and daughter, they died quickly.
They didn't have to see what the world became.
So, when he injected himself and La Reina and all those other Zeros in there, that wasn't the vaccine?
Then what was it?
The good doctor here is building me an army.
So I guess this means you're not going to California.
Maybe not. But if I do, it'll be with an army.
A zombie army.
A blend army.
One that I control.
Because you controlled Cassandra so well.
Look on the bright side.
You didn't get injected.
I didn't let you.
Why didn't you?
Cuz I like you just the way you are.
I'm gonna go find the others.
You stay put.
This is a good thing, Warren!
Back to work.
What did he do now?
Conspired with Kurian to make a fake vaccine that turns people into zombie blends that he controls.
Kinda like a zombie slave army?
Exactly like a zombie slave army.
So zombie slave strippers weren't enough.
That's the dark side of ambition.
So all those Zeros, he controls them?
So no California?
No. We're still going to California. All of us.
Absolutely. Even if we got to take Murphy by force. Again.
What about the zombie slave army?
Yeah, well seems like there's an incubation period before he has total control.
We got to get out of here before then.
And then there's Vasquez.
Got to get him, too.
Are you sure about that, chief? He damn near got us killed.
He let emotion get the better of him. But he'd come for any of us.
We can get him.
My brains. 10K's guns.
Doc's Dumb luck?
Good karma? Funky mojo?
We can get him.
Good. Let's do it.
You see this?
November 12, 1973.
That's when the apocalypse started for me.
I was twelve years old.
My brother Julio was ten.
And he was shot dead in a driveby.
Right in front of me.
I held him in my arms and I watched him die.
To this day, I can't see my hands without seeing his blood.
You think the apocalypse gave you a reason to kill?
Hey, let me tell you something, brother.
We all got an apocalypse. You hear me?
We all got an apocalypse.
She wants you.
Did you use that vaccine?
Everyone used the vaccine?
I'll be back.
Lucky for you, there's more to the story.
I think he wants you to go with him.
All right, you go.
I'll meet you guys at the entrance of the tunnels in one hour.
Ah. There you are, Roberta.
Would you like to tell us what you found out about our assassin?
They were all a part of it.
A United States military plot to assassinate you, La Reina.
And take over our operation.
She was the head of it.
You know he's lying, right?
Yeah, I was a part of the military. But you know that.
I was a lieutenant in the National Guard before the apocalypse.
And yeah, Murphy? I guess you can call him a military plot.
But all I ever wanted to do was get him to a doctor who could make a vaccine.
He wasn't trying to kill you.
All he wanted was revenge on a man who killed his wife and his little girl.
And that was you, Hector.
This El Murfi, Kurian, this woman.
If we don't stop them, they will destroy us.
Give me the word and I will end this threat.
I will not tolerate this treatment of an honored guest.
This disloyalty to me.
Mi Reina, no.
Mi Reina, please.
I beg you. You don't know what you're doing.
I know exactly what I'm doing.
You're messing with La Reina's mind!
I will kill you.
You hear me?! I will kill you!
Finish him. Kill him, Warren.
Are you loyal to me or not?
It's done. Say it.
Do with him what you will.
They're all teed up. Ready to take control.
I don't want any part of this.
It's too late.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
Take me to Vasquez.
If you wanna live.
Well that was exciting.
We're gonna have a lot of fun.
Doing okay there, doctor?
What's wrong with you? You don't look so good.
What's wrong with you?
[groaning] All right.
You're with me, doc.
Looks like everybody needs a booster shot.
No. Hey, hey, hey, hey. It's us. It's us.
Que chingas pasa aqui?
Let me guess.
Murphy's zombie army plan went horribly wrong?
Could be worse. Coulda gone right.
Is he in there?
Yeah, but be careful. He's not alone.
There you go.
Are you bitten?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Hey, hey.
We're gonna let that thing take care of him. We got to go.
This will be a slow and excruciating death for you.
Nothing like you deserve.
One little turn of the wheel.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Do you think you can make it out of here?
Aim for the border. Let's get Murphy.
No. Kurian, no.
No, Kurian. No!
No, Kurian! Bad Kurian!
You zombie quack.
You should have known you couldn't pull this off.
Now you ready to go to California?
Yes. Fine. California. Whatever.
Just get me out of here.
Addy Puppy and kitten free.
What? It's my traveling outfit.
You should see the rest of the closet. Let's go.
Don't leave me here!
Down here. Down here.
Where is she?
She'll be here.
Before those... What are we calling them now?
Yeah. We're gonna need something to slow them down.
What better way to fight half zombies than with full zombies?
I can think of lots of better ways.
But I guess if this is all we got It's a multi-door release just like in prisons.
Another story for another time, grasshopper.
[muffled growling continues]
It's getting closer.
Where are they?
What are you guys doing?
We got to go!
No way to outrun those things.
We had a plan. Except we couldn't get the doors open.
Open the doors and let them loose?
Let your people go.
[muffled growling continues]
Come on. Get him and run.
We're close! Go, go, go!
He'll come. Go.
We'll get to the hatch. We'll be safe on the ladder.
But we won't go any further without you.
You let them go.
You gave them a chance.
It's not right.
Move it, Addy! Go!
Yo soy Escorpion.
I don't die.
No one disrespects me and lives.
Who wants to die first, huh?
Who wants to die?!
Come on cabrón.
I got a shot.
He's gonna kill him.
No, he's got to do this. We got to let him.
I'm gonna do you a favor. I'm gonna do you a favor.
Get me out of here!
You're gonna pay for this!
Get me out of here!
[whispering] It's you.
[whispering] You're alive.
