|A virus that overwhelms us all.|
Howard is driving along with his wife and son to reach a quarantine in Detroit, Michigan. After stopping to get gas and food at a gas station, he encounters Dylan, who points a shotgun at him demanding to know if he is "clean". Howard says he is with Homeland Security and explains their situation. Dylan joins them, explaining that he was the last survivor of an outbreak in his town a month ago, and he hasn't seen anyone in ten days. They reach the Youngstown quarantine, and Dylan and Howard's family are led inside. After Howard radios Atlanta, Dylan begins to show symptoms inside the quarantine. Howard's wife pleads with him to let them out, but he locks them inside, knowing he can't risk letting the infection spread further.
