They find vehicles full of zombie-like soldiers who are hiding in the rubble. The squad hide out amongst the dead corpses, but Private Bernstein is taken prisoner and taken away in a truck. The signal for tracking from Bernstein allows them to track the vehicles, and they find a camp of zombie soldiers who are wearing CBRN hazmat suits.

Meanwhile the squad’s commanding officer Major General Smith is discussing the outbreak with the rest of his staff. It appears that his son is infected and that they’re continuing to test other zombies. After taking shelter in the bunker, Paige confides to her boyfriend Rodrigo, that she became infected after a battle when blood that had been contaminated got in her mouth. He kisses her passionately even though he’s aware he will get infected just like she. They stay behind from the rest of the group, and then head out into the countryside.
