The zombie apocalypse happened three years ago. But humans continue to cling on. And now there might be a glimmer of hope. Episode 1, Puppies And Kittens, introduces a man who gets an injection of a new formula right before the lab gets overrun by zombies. He gets bitten, but he does not turn into a zombie. He is immune to them. Now they have to get Patient Zero to a lab in California. Lieutenant Hammod attempts to get Patient Zero from New York to California. They find other survivors, former National Guard members, who joins them. But the journey starts out roughly as a camp falls. What is this zombie baby? Who is the mysterious sharp shooter? Will the group really go on this mission? Episode 2, Fracking Zombies, takes the crew to a point where they run out of fuel. So they go to the Jersey Devil refinery. Citizen Z gets an unexpected visitor to his base of operations. Can the rest of the crew get the fuel when there are zombies all over the place? One woman in the group also has a dark secret that appears about to come to light. In Episode 3, the group ends up in Philadelphia where they find a famous American artifact. A strange family/cult comes after them. These guys may well be cannibals. Will they kill the group and stop the mission before it even begins? Episode 4 brings us into an encounter with some Amish Zombies who quickly get dispensed with. The group runs into trouble keeping their truck. They contact Citizen Z and get a Chopper to fly to Washington state. But that proves to be easier said than done from this general. Can they get it? Episode 5, Home Sweet Zombies, or as I prefer to call it, Z-Nado, brings the group into the Midwest where they get to Tornado Alley and find themselves confronted by a Z-Nado. One character lost her husband there, but believes he might still be around. Will Roberta make it? Is her husband still alive? Episode 6, Sister of Mercy, has the group arrive in Hannibal, Missouri, where they find another group. This group lives at a compound with very strict rules. What do these religious looney tunes want? Episode 7, Zunami, shows the effects of the devastating ending of the previous episode. The group arrives in Western Kansas to find an armed camp of survivalists. The group has problems with trust, and try to win a high-powered rifle and some gas. There's also a Zunami, a mega-mega-horde of almost a million zombies headed their way. Episode 8 has the group continuing to deal with the Zunami. The origin of the millions of zombies reveals itself. The human members of the group choose an interesting place to hide. Murphy seems to be evolving into something. What is going on with this visitor to Citizen Z? Episode 9 catches us up with Addie and her young man companion. They end up in a small town where the guy starts to have a recurring dream about a zombie killing him or him dieing in some way. Why does the dream keep repeating over and over? Is this "Groundhog Day?" And whose mind is it, really? Episode 10 brings the voyagers to South Dakota where they run into some glowing zombies. Yes, these zombies are radioactive. Even worse, the local nuclear plant is about to go into meltdown, which will wipe out all the living humans. Can it be shut down? Episode 11 brings us to a group of women who have their own ideas of what to do with men. There are no men among them at all. One woman has very unusual tastes in male companionship. And Addie makes an interesting decision. Episode 12 has the group being waylaid at a country club where they are forced to make a raid on a drug factory. The effects of the drugs on the zombies are very interesting. Murphy continues to change in fascinating ways. What happens with zombies on meth? Viagra? Episode 13, Doctor of the Dead, brings the first season to a close and marks radical changes in everything. The origin of the zombie apocalypse appears to be revealed. A sinister doctor emerges. The drug Murphy took may not be what was promised. Murphy undergoes truly immense changes. The lives of several characters hang in the balance. And another great disaster may strike the entire world. Season 2 gets underway with Episode 1, The Murphy. Things get worse for all concerned as many nukes hit. Murphy has escaped, leading Citizen Z to put out word of a huge reward for Murphy or as he is called now, The Murphy. The others manage to survive and start to seek him out. Murphy seems to be enjoying his new position and powers. Will he go along with the plans to still save humanity? In Episode 2, White Light, Murphy finds himself being pursued by multiple groups thanks to Citizen Z. There are a number who may now be overly concerned about the greater needs of humanity. There's a mysterious man with an RPG who appears. Carnage will soon break out. Not everyone will walk away alive. Will Murphy meet his doom? In Episode 203, Zombie Road, Murphy and friends run into a caravan of refugees from the Seattle Blast Zone on their way to Edmonton. There's a new type of zombies, Blaster, who are radioactive, fast and resistant to Murphy. Can the group get by humans and zombies? In Episode 204, "Batch 45," rumors pop up of a cure for the zombie plague with a batch of plants located in an experimental greenhouse. The problem is that there's plant zombies there. Murphy may be the key to getting it. But can even Murphy actually make it to the batch? And will it actually work? An unexpected and unwelcome visitor drops by. Episode 5 of Season 2 brings us "Zombaby" in which the group has arrived in Wisconsin, and a giant cheese wheel has an interesting connection to the zombies. Murphy's brief fling from last season returns and brings with her Murphy's Zombaby, who is just about to be born. How will Murphy react to impending fatherhood? What will the baby be like? How will some Amish handle it? And how will the zombies react? Murphy now has his daughter, Lucy, on his own, and he forms a deep emotional bond with the daughter. But zombies keep on following her for some reason. And Murphy's control of them doesn't seem to work as long as Lucy is there. So Murphy takes his daughter and runs. Where will he go?

Z-Nation 315: Finishing Up Strongly

Season 3 of Z-Nation had a few rough spots, but it still come through at the end as the final episode was very serious, but there was quite a bit of humor in it as well. There's also some tragic aspects to it. The season finished up strongly. Now onto Season 4. I give Episode 315 a rating of 8 out of 10.
