Previously on Y: The Last Man...

We need a geneticist.

I can get him out of here,
but it has to be now,

- and before anyone else...
- Mom, listen, I have been out there.

- This isn't a good idea.
- You think I want this?

I just got you back from the dead.

Please, I just want to find your mom.

I don't care what she
did or did not do to you

a hundred years ago when
the world was different.


- My leg!
- Okay. Oh, you're fine. I promise you.

- We'll-we'll get help.
- We can't go.

- Mack, we have to!
- We can't go!

AGENT : We need to
talk about the pilots.

They're gonna be a problem.

MULLIGAN: I thought you
were flying with us.

AGENT : No, we need cover.

- YORICK: Jesus! Do we go back?
- We keep going.

YORICK: He's a rescue.

Capuchins are actually incredibly smart.

You can-you can train
'em to help paraplegics.

- You can...
- Ha. So you rescued him...

from a paraplegic, huh?

Uh, no, I rescued him from
eating lipstick for science

for the rest of his life.

(CHUCKLES): What-what do you care?

Get any sleep?

Can't get over how quiet it is out here.

It's kind of creepy, right?

Do we have anything to eat?

We have to ration till I can
get us some more food.

You know how to use this?

Do I know how to use a wrench?


Unscrew 'em. We can trade
that generator for something.

Where'd you learn all
this helicopter shit?

- Jesus Christ...
- No, no, no, no,

- don't pick that up.
- ... that thing's, like, pounds.

Don't pick that up.

I learned it in Iraq.

Is it... Uh, that's it? Oh, okay. Wow.

You are just a delightfully
open book, Agent Burgin.

- That's not my name.
- Holy shit, lady, are you serious?

Definitely don't call me
lady. Call me .

Okay, cool. Call me Trapezoid.

Are you... Come on,
that's not your real name.

- By design.
- Well, who designed it?

Look, my mom already told me

you're part of some, like,
super-secret spy thing.

That sounds exciting.
Did you always want to be a spy,

or was it, like, part of
the family business,

- or did you...
- Bolts.

I don't know, maybe we should
have gotten all the way to Boston

before we ditched our ride.

It's too visible. It's the
only light in the sky.

We got to keep a low profile.

And, uh, how long till they realize

- that two helicopters are missing?
- When they do,

they'll be looking for the two
missing pilots that stole them.

My feet are k*lling me.

Five minutes.

That's not creepy at all.

What'd I tell you?

- Be careful.
- There's nobody here.

Oh, God.

Oh... Oh, God, that's so good.

- Do you smell that?
- What?

Exactly. No bodies?

Why do you sound disappointed?


'Cause if no one's dead,

- maybe they're still here.
- Oh...

- Hello?! Hello?! (CHUCKLES)
- Shh.

There's nobody here.

Couple more hours,

we should probably make it
out of Pennsylvania by today.

Should only be a few more
days till D. C. after that.


Okay, fine.

Did I ever tell you
I had a riding coach?

Coach Karen.

She had a son, too. Benji.

He loved horses, the little creep.

And he was homeschooled.

Oh, Benji the Homeschooled Horse Boy?

My mom always wanted me to make friends

with the girls at the barn.

I had more in common with the horses.


(CHUCKLES) Holy shit.

I haven't seen one of those in a while.

- Class... classy lady. (LAUGHS)
- Uh... (LAUGHS)

Yeah, that's good, that's good.

No way.


No f*cking way.

Oh, my God. If we drive all night,
we could be there by morning.

- What?
- There's no point.

We'd get, like, half a mile
before we hit a pileup.

No, no, they're clearing
a section of .

We might get lucky.

I need a night.

- No.
- One night.

- Uh, I'm sorry, f*ck no.
- Please?

It's just one night. We'll sleep there.

We'll go first thing in
the morning, I promise.

I just... I thought that
I had more time, okay?

I need to, like, get my head around it.


Sammy, please?

SAM: It took me a whole year of my life

to get that f*cking thing on its feet,

and now it's just like
it never happened.

HERO: R.I.P., Sam's one-man show.

- All right, all right.
- No, it's sweet.

Like, everybody's out there
mourning their loved ones,

and you're in your feelings
about performance art.

- Yeah, well...


Oh, shit, I'm stoned.

Wow, you're really on one, huh?

HERO: Yeah, tonight's all I got.

No holding back.


They got the good shit
at the Pentagon, okay?

I was with Mike.

That's, um...

That's where I was when...

You were with him when he...

You could have told me.

L-Look, I mean...

was he your boss? Yes.

Are you a home-wrecker? Uh, also yes.

But did that assh*le die happy?

Indeed he did.

Jennifer will ask me where I was.


Easy: you were saving orphans.

She'll know.

How would she know?

I told her about him.

- I was drunk.
- Oh.

What did she say?

That I have no regard
for anyone's life...

... uh, but my own.

That I'm selfish and self-destructive

and, uh...



Do you still want to go?

We have to.



- Oh, what the hell?
- (CHUCKLES) Sorry. I'm sorry.

Couldn't sleep. Were you...

You smell like ass and monkey.

Are you serious?

SAM: Aw, what the f*ck?!

Why? God!




I told you there wouldn't be shit here.

Yeah, I know. Sorry.

(SIGHS) Yeah.



It looks like your leg is hurt.

Would it be okay if I took a look at it?

I used to work in an ambulance.

Can you sit up?

Yeah. Okay.


All right, right here.

There you go, in the light.

Sam, water?

I'm gonna take a closer
look at this, okay?

Get the f*ck away from her!

- I-I can help her. I'm an EMT.
- Get away! Get away from her.

- I'm not trying to hurt her.
- Move. Get away!

Take it easy. Just relax.


You figure it out.

HERO: That is infected.

Sam, can you try to find
gauze, saline? Anything.

Can you tell me how this happened?

A shovel. She was chasing away crows.


Well, I'm sure she wants her mom
close by. You want to come here?


I'm just gonna lift the bandage off,

so deep breath on the count
of three, okay? One, two,

- three.


That's all I could find.

HERO: We're just gonna
wash it out a little bit.

I know. I know it hurts.
This needs to be drained.

Where are you two staying?


we know a place.

It's safe.

We could, uh... we could take you there.

She needs to rest.


(WHISPERING) I think they went that way.

- All of 'em?
- Yeah.


I got this one.

Oh, look!

Oh, man. Score.

Wait, wait, what do you have?

- Here, here.
- Can I help you?

- (GASPS) Oh. Uh...

Good morning.

Didn't mean to scare you.

Can I help you, though?

We didn't know anyone else was out here.

- You got any food?
- That you can spare?

No, I don't think I do. Sorry.

Is it just you, or...

You got two tents.

No, I'm with my sister.
She's by the river.

- Huh.
- You served?


- Where'd you get the jacket?
- Found it.


You got a dog or something?

No, I've been trying
to use it as a trap,

but I haven't had much luck with it.

Definitely not enough to feed
two extra mouths, so...

best of luck.

You know, no one has ever
become poor by giving.

- That's Anne...
- Frank.

I know.

Best... of luck.

- YORICK: Get their bag, get their shoes!
- Shit. f*ck!


Give me those!


They're quoting Anne Frank?

That's garbage.

Unbelievable. What if
they saw your face?

- They didn't see my face.
- They could have been armed.

They didn't see my face,
I didn't get shot,

and you didn't up the body
count by two more.

I think we need to establish
some ground rules.

Great. Yeah. How about number one,

- you don't order me to strip.
- You do not wander off.

You do not talk to anyone. You...

You got something to say to me?

You told me not to talk, so...

Hey, buddy, come in your home.




Hey, that bike work?

What do you want for it?

What do you got?

- I'm not taking MREs.
- WOMAN: What is this shit?

What, do you think we're joking here?

You think this is charity?

VENDOR: I'll have something
good tomorrow.

Yeah, you better have something tomorrow

or you lose the booth.

- You hear me?
- What are they, cops?

Staties wives.

Some of their kids, too.

They protect the market,
keep things orderly.

In exchange...

They help themselves.

It's a good thing.

You should have seen this place before.

People got no sense. Mayhem.

So, the bike?

It runs. Needs some maintenance,

but a lot of people looking
