Sandy rounds everyone up so he can boss them around. I wouldn't stand for that, but the Promenade people have no will, so they listen as Sandy says they should all stay put as there's plenty of shelter, food, and water to go around. There's also a camera that keeps spinning around and zooming in and out. I'm dizzy. Kirsten walks up with some blankets and tells Sandy that his ability to "calm an angry mob" is sexy. Um... angry mob, Kirsten? I guess when you're as depressed as she is, any display of emotion looks extreme, but the only mob I saw was full of children and their half-dead parents, none of whom looked angry. But Sandy accepts the compliment and asks her how she's doing. She says that even though she had her problems with Newport as of late, it's heartbreaking to see it like this. She wanders off to pass out the blankets while Sandy answers his cell.
It's Frank. Oh, crap, he's here too? Every time I think he's gone for good, he comes back. He's calling to check up on Julie and Ryan while stuck in traffic. Sandy says that Ryan's fine, but he doesn't know about Julie. What's up with the selective cell phone service this episode? Julie's been calling and leaving messages all over town, but somehow no one's heard from her? And Frank wouldn't answer his phone when Julie called even though his phone apparently does work. Frank gets all pissy at Sandy for having no news about Julie and hangs up on him. He looks at the traffic. People are out of their cars and milling around like they're in an R.E.M. video.
Gary checks out the scene through the ice cream store roof. He climbs down and informs Kaitlin and Julie that they've somehow managed to get washed out to sea on the pier. Kaitlin's reaction is annoyance, while Julie's is annoyance followed by an awesome "say WHAT?!" face.
Seth and Summer finally show up at the Roberts house, and Seth and Ryan exchange meaningful glances before Summer and Taylor rush off to find Pancakes, who is more important than anything or anyone else. Seth and Ryan leave the two defenseless young ladies to that while they claim to go off to get supplies. Taylor points out that she already has supplies, so Seth says they need anti-zombie gear as well. Hee hee. I love his fear of zombies following natural disasters, especially because I think at least a little part of it is genuine. "Pancakes needs you right now," Seth says. Summer cares more about the rabbit than anyone else, so that works on her. She rushes off to find Pancakes and Taylor follows. As soon as they're gone, Seth asks Ryan what's up.
