David then tells the others that they owe him $10 each, which the father says he’ll pay for both of them.
When Javi goes to grab his father’s wallet, however, he finds a doctor’s note informing him that he has cancer. The three of them talk about why he kept it a secret, and he explains that he didn’t want to scare them and that it’s his life and he can do as he wishes. Despite David offering to pay for the treatment, their father declines.

Or at least they think it’s her. David runs over and turns her over only for a zombie to try mauling his face off. Javi runs over and pulls it off before someone lands a crowbar straight into its skull. It’s Kate! She’s alive and gives Javi a big hug in front of David. After watching the outpouring of emotions between the two, David ruthlessly kills a zombie, curb stomping its head into the ground. The three then see Gabe and Clem surrounded by zombies, however, they take care of them on their own and the group runs inside a nearby building for refuge.
