Nine days after the National Guard quarantines the neighborhood into a Safe Zone (aka DZ), residents try to live normally. But tensions build under military rules, with Madison stressed by extra work caused by her home's overcrowding and Travis' new role as civilian liaison. Chris shows a video to Travis and Madison of a signaling light from the Dead Zone. Travis talks his neighbor Doug into getting mental therapy. Liza gives medical help to ill neighbors. Nick sneaks into ill Hector's home to steal his doses of morphine delivered via IV drip. Ofelia kisses Corporal Adams, who was unable to get medicine for Griselda. Madison signals the flashing light in the Dead Zone, which signals back. She sneaks outside the fence to investigate and finds evidence that the guardsmen have killed civilians, even the uninfected. Travis learns that Doug had been sent to a hospital over his mental health issues. Dr. Exner determines that Liza is not a real nurse. Daniel warns Madison of his experience in El Salvador, where the sick were taken under the guise of receiving hospitalization but were instead killed. Under Dr. Exner's instructions, the military takes Griselda and Nick to a hospital, but Nick's family protests his departure. Liza agrees to go to assist the medical team, despite not wanting to leave her son. Travis retreats to the roof and sees the signal from the Dead Zone house. Seconds later, he sees and hears gunfire, followed by darkness.
