ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 3, Murphy’s Miracle

Murphy’s Miracle picks up right where A New Mission left off. Team Murphy is on the road, and get stuck behind the only other car in a thousand miles. Murphy is ticked at first, but when he goes to check what’s the holdup he finds that there is a sick kid who is about to turn in the other car. What does Murphy do? I guess he saves her? Is it really saving her if she ends up like Cassandra?

Miracle Or Murder

While Murphy is playing god, Team Warren thinks they are hot on his tracks only to find out that Murphy was leading them on a wild goose chase after hiding the tracker on a Zombie. As Team Warren is looking for a vehicle they come across a food truck that is surrounded by Zombies, and we get introduced to the town’s mailman, who doesn’t want any of his Zombies hurt.

Surrounded

Up in the arctic Kaya is pepping Citizen Z up, trying to get him to understand how important he was. His transmitter is dead, and without it he’s just Simon, but Kaya doesn’t buy it. People need to hear the voice of hope, to know that everything isn’t lost. I love Kaya’s attitude! A little bit later kaya reveals her softer side, breaking down when Citizen Z tells her there is no one left to hear him even if did get back on the radio. They are just about to smooch when the radio distracts them. A little bit later at dinner Citizen Z discovers that while Kaya and her family have been incredibly kind to him, the small family is almost out of food. Lucky for them, Citizen Z knows where there is more food.

While Team Murphy is exploring Spokane, Team Warren is helping the Postman in exchange for gas and supplies. As they are helping him the realize something is very odd in town. The Zombies in town are very focused on the Postman, and it doesn’t seem natural. They corner the Postman, thinking maybe he’s been bit by Murphy or has some other power, going so far as to make sure he’s not doing, well, other things, with the undead.

Sexual Contact

With the heat on, The Postman just wants Team Warren gone, so he agrees to take them into the basement shelter to get supplies, which is when they start to find dead mail carriers who’ve been shot in the head. That is just about when the Postman opens a door, leaving Team Warren to fight for their lives in the near dark. This leads to what I think is the Best Zombie Kill of the episode when Hector goes to town with a Cancelled stamp.

Cancelled

When the fighting is done Team Warren finds the real Postmaster among the dead zombies, confirming their suspicions that something wasn’t right.

While Warren, Doc, Addy, and Hector are locked in the basement the Postman goes back upstairs and takes Dr. Sun Mei prisoner at gunpoint, leading her to his torture dungeon.

Torture Dungeon

Once in the Dungeon, the Postman reveals his true nature. He killed his townsfolk because he was angry at how they treated him, and jealous of their lives. The townspeople aren’t following him because he feeds them, or love him, they are following him because he was the last thing they say before dying.

Dr. Sun Mei is able to save throw a jar of ichor at the Postman and save herself long enough to open the dungeon door so the Zombie townspeople can take their revenge.

Murphy’s Miracle ends with Murphy sitting on his self proclaimed throne as 10K struggles with being under Murphy’s influence when the family from the opening scenes shows up, wanting to thank Murphy for saving their daughter, who is not longer scared.

It’s Good To Be King

Not only do they want to thank him, but the husband wants Murphy to bite his wife. Murphy is smiling as Murphy’s Miracle comes to an end.

Murphy’s Miracle scored an 80/100. I really liked the twist with the postman and loved the progression of Citizen Z’s story, which is why this episode is Worth Your Time.
