SPOILER ALERT!! - Abby (Julie Graham) and her new friends find a house to shelter in and set about gathering the essential supplies they need to stay alive. When they visit a local supermarket they are confronted with Dexter (Anthony Flanagan), the leader of an armed gang that has laid claim to the contents. Abby is shocked by how quickly people have resorted to selfishness and violence.
As Dexter’s gang is leaving, Abby sees a face she thinks she recognizes – a teacher who took her son to the hospital before the worst of the virus hit. But the gang departs before she can speak to him. Abby cannot forget about the teacher. Taking Tom (Max Beesley) with her, she goes back to the supermarket in the hope that Dexter’s gang will return. Dexter soon arrives, but he has no interest in helping Abby. Instead, he gives her and Tom a chilling final warning to stay away.
Greg (Paterson Joseph) goes in search of the main supermarket warehouse. When he gets there, he finds Bob Murphy (Daniel Ryan) and Sarah Boyer (Robyn Addison). Bob and Sarah had planned to use the contents of the warehouse to start a trading business, but their plans are halted when Bob has an accident and is severely injured. Greg is able to stabilize Bob’s condition and agrees to stay the night to keep an eye on the patient.
Once Sarah is alone with Greg, she tries to seduce him. She needs a man who can protect her and do the heavy work. Greg can see that Sarah wants to use him, but he still finds it hard to resist this beautiful young girl who is throwing herself at him.
