ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 5, Little Red and the Wolfz

Little Red and the Wolfz begins with 10K. After jumping into the river to escape Murphy’s Minions, he’s been carried downstream, away from his pursuers. Even wounded and cold, 10K was able to keep his grip on the bag of Zombie Cure.

10K Down – Stream

While 10K is struggling to survive out on the river bank Murphy is sad and maudlin at the loss of Dr. Merch. He wishes he understood why she did it, and as he’s walking around her corpse, he is pulled in by the look and smell of her delicious brains.

Temptation

Murphy is resisting but the more he ponders why she did it the more agitated he becomes.

10K might have escaped Murphy’s compound, but he’s bleeding and out in the wild and still has one of Murphy’s henchmen on his trail. 10K flees into the water, climbing onto what’s left of a wooden picnic table to drift downstream. He might be wounded, but when he comes across a man on a motorcycle, he still has enough in him to steal the bike and race away, leading to a bit of motorcycle handgun practice. (Highly dangerous – don’t try it.) He makes it to a nearby farm before getting knocked off the bike by a drag line. At least he had a good dream while he was out cold, imagining Red kissing him.

Dreaming Of Red

When 10K wakes up he’s not in quite as happy a place. He’s been chained to a car and there are multiple Zombies approaching. He takes down several, but his wound is slowing him down and sapping his strength. Which leads to an awesome Zombie Kill.

Hubcap of Death

10K is kicking butt, but he’s getting tired, and the Zombies just keep coming. It’s looking bad for 10K until Murphy’s henchman shows up and saves him just in time. He doesn’t really care about 10K, but he wants to get back the bag of curative because he knows Murphy needs it. 10K doesn’t want to go back to being a Murphy puppet however and takes the first chance he gets to bash his captor in the face with a rock and make a run for it. He doesn’t get far however before he’s caught and given a bit of pain in return for his efforts.

Out on the back roads we see the couple who stole the bike from 10K. There is a pack of something in the woods. Something that is fast, and finds people delicious.

Back at Murphy’s compound he realizes he needs to make more Zombie booster for himself after he looks at his arm and realizes he has patches of pale, healthy, human flesh. That’s just about when he picks up a fork and looks over at Dr. Merch’s lovely brains, just waiting to be eaten.

10K and his captor track down the motorbike in hopes of finding the bag of Zombie Meds only to be chased off by whatever else is in the woods with them. 10K uses the brief moment of confusion to fake his death, and continue running, following his imaginary Red who is urging him to run, at least until she confront him, telling him he has to go back and save 5K.

This leads to a nice, if choppy fight scene where 10K takes down multiple beasties, thinking he is saving 5K, when its really the woman who stole the bike, and the meds, from him. It’s too late to save her, but he does recover the bag of meds. Feeling Murphy’s pull on him, 10K takes another shot and falls into another dream, lost in happy daydreams of Red and 5K.

10K’s Happy Place

Little Red and the Wolfz ends with Murphy chowing down on Dr. Merch’s brains, now able to read her journal and understand it. Murphy’s henchman comes back and tells Murphy that 10K is dead, but Murphy doesn’t believe it. He knows that 10K is a tough kid, and if he escaped, that means 10K will be heading for Warren, and then coming for him. Murphy’s final command of the episode is to tell his team to get ready for an attack.

Little Red and the Wolfz was a tough episode to rate. I loved all the Zombie violence, but the Zombie Meds stuff was a little confusing. The shot is a booster for Murphy but it saves 10K from Murphy’s powers? Maybe I’m just missing something. Overall it was still a fun, action packed episode and scored a 79/100.
