When the bomb goes off, Karen and Hal figure that Tom and Mike must have gotten Ben. They run out of their hiding spot and Dai comes screeching around the corner with the getaway truck. Tom helps Mike throw Rick in the truck bed and then says he's going back for Ben. En route, however, he encounters a Mech on the rooftop who shoots his laser pointer. It misses Tom, but lands close enough that the impact sends him flying. Hal and Karen shoot at the Mech as Dai picks up an unconscious Tom and throws him into the truck. And then! Dai just totally drives away, leaving Hal and Karen behind! That is SO NOT COOL! This is what happens when mommies and daddies have to fight. After the truck leaves, the Mech jumps to the ground and stands face to face with Hal and Karen. The Mech goes, "Unnnnnnnnghhhhhhhhhhhh," as it is wont to do. Hal and Karen's expressions, which read, "Holy fuckballs," pretty much say it all.
When we return from a commercial break, Tom comes to with Dai, Hal and zombie Ricky in some sort of building. I'm not sure exactly what they're doing there, other than it's a very atmospheric setting for a dramatic event that (spoiler, kind of!) may or may not be coming. Tom asks where Hal and Karen are and is not happy when Dai tells him that a Mech was on their tail and they couldn't wait. I'm with Tom on this one. That's lame, Dai. It's a quarter of a mile or less to the school, so Tom tells Dai and Mike (and by extension zombie Rick) to go there. He's going back to save Hal and Karen. Dai urges Tom to come with them and at least get weapons and reinforcements, but Tom says there's no time. At least someone has the appropriate sense of urgency in this scenario.
Tom asks Mike what he was thinking. Mike apologizes, but says that this zombie-ass fuck in his arms is the only family he's got left. It's a sad state of affairs, really. Tom then asks where the rest of the weapons are, and Dai says that he had to leave them in the truck. I still don't understand why they left the truck, and where they are now. Anybody? This is my fourth time watching this episode, and it's still a mystery to me. Then again, many of my brain cells are compromised due to my television priorities having historically been heavily focused on the Real Housewives franchise. Dai offers Tom a sawed-off shotgun, rope and flashlight, and tells him to be careful. Way to step up, Dai!
