Dwight tells John that Sherry gave everything up to save him. He owes her his life. In a diner, John finds something. It’s a note. Dwight has been looking on the wrong road this whole time.
Annie tells Alicia that she doesn’t want to go with them because at another camp some of the people weren’t careful. They attracted the dead. They were from the power plant. When the walls of their camp looked like it was going to give way the adults sent them away. They hid in the woods in a designated spot, crying and eating old granola bars in the dark. The adults never came for them. She went back to the camp on her own and found her parents and the others sick in a cabin. They wouldn’t let her in. She promised to stay in the woods and look over the other kids and her brothers until they were better. She can’t leave now. Alicia wants to help. She cant surround herself around the dead. Maybe she is doing it to avoid the living?
In a car outside the diner, John finds a letter to Dwight from Sherry. She urges him to move on without her. Meanwhile, Morgan finds his staff in the back of Grace’s truck. He holds it. He tells her about hope and trying. Grace jumps into the truck. He needs to let her go in alone. She needs to fix her mistakes. There isn’t another suit. Morgan lets her go.
