The car, smoking and steaming, she tries to escape thru the woods, and the men at the blockade were calling her to stop, but she disappeared into the night. She was found the next day, roaming the fields at the blockade, infected, and one of them. Carl was devastated, when what was left of the police force reported the sad news to him, he was heartbroken and lost. So with the heavy weight of fear, and sadness from losing his true love, Carl sets out in this wasteland to try to piece together, and rebuild with nothing left to his name but the clothes on his back, and the still fresh heartbreak from losing his beloved Allison.
