ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 2, A New Mission

A New Mission begins with Citizen Z, nearly frozen to death, stranded out in the snow in the far north when we see someone put him on the sled and begin to pull him away.

We then cut over to Warren just as Murphy is approaching from the sub. We have apparently fallen back in time from Episode 1. A group Asian special forces have Warren, Doc, Addy, and Escorpion while Murphy has decided to set out on his own.

Murphy, 10K and Murphy’s Zombie Slaves don’t make it far before two of their four wheelers blow tires, leaving them group open to attack by a group of very barbarian like newcomers. Murphy tries to stop them, but they aren’t Zombies, and his power doesn’t hold sway over them.

Savages

The special forces have air support, including an air drop of supplies. Unfortunately, everyone for miles around can see the supplies falling from the sky, creating a mad rush to get there first.

Back in the north Citizen Z is slowly coming to, waking up next to a young lady. He doesn’t know where he is, but Pup is okay and he’s warm, so why not lie back down and rest. In the end it does make sense. If they wanted to harm him, he wouldn’t be waking up at all.

Citizen Z Got Lucky

Back on the race to the supplies, the special forces holding Team Warren show just how much firepower they have. A small group of Zombies approach, and is rapidly taken out by a laser grenade.

The special forces, being overly confident, almost fall pray to a Zombie straggler, but Warren and Escorpion take care of the Zombie even though they are in handcuffs. The act of good leads the leader of the Special Forces to at least cut their zip ties off so they can use their hands again.

Back over on the Team Murphy side 10K is trying to break away from whatever hold Murphy has on him when they hear something approaching. A massive ball of Zombies is rolling along, tearing into itself as the starving Zombies eat each other.

Out on the hunt for the air drop, the special forces have decided to give Team Warren their weapons back, with some small modifications. Addy gets a new Z-Whacker and this time its electrified.

Shockingly Nice Modifications

Back in the cold North Citizen Z has woken up, literally, on every front, and we get introduced to Kaya, who apparently a huge fan of Citizen Z. Kaya has a flat affect, but I love the way she approaches life, and her affection that is already apparent for Citizen Z.

Back on the hunt for the supply drop the special forces go down after one poorly times laser zombie throw gets tossed back at the soldiers and all of them but one gets their heads popped off. The survivor is bleeding though, and he doesn’t last long when the smell brings a hungry Zombie his way. The mission has been a total bust. The female leader of the special forces is still alive, but her team is dead, and the supplies have been destroyed.

Warren takes control the situation. Their new mission is to get Murphy, and help save the world, because no one else is going to do it. This is just about when Murphy rolls up in an armored vehicle. Murphy wants Warren to join his mission, and he has no desire to save anyone.

As Team Warren is struggling with their next step to bring Murphy back into their fold, Citizen Z is watching the northern lights with Kaya.

The episode ends with The man showing the name on his paper, and no surprises here, he’s after Murphy.

A New Mission had some great scenes and I loved seeing Citizen Z made it after nearly freezing to death. Overall I’m giving A New Mission  a 77/100, making it Worth Your Time.
