Nicole just can't explain to Rafe why the scissors are on the floor and not in Deimos' chest where she left them. Rafe wants to know what really happened. Nicole tells him everything that happened with Deimos before she stabbed him . . . again! Rafe takes up the scissors. He notices there's no blood and reminds her zombies don't leave blood. Nicole says Deimos wanted revenge and lays it out for Rafe.

Ava is alone and talking out loud. She's trying to put the pieces together, but can't figure out what's really going on. Ava thinks she should have stayed to fight rather than run. She pleads with Charlie to not hurt Tripp. 

Tripp realizes mama Ava was right. Charlie is "alive" and threatening to harm Allie. Charlie taunts Tripp and asks him what he's going to do about it. Tripp tells Charlie he's not even scary as a zombie, but Allie tries to tone Tripp down.
