Adrian arrives at the mall with somber news for Eve and Alex; meanwhile, the mall residents start to turn against them.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -
- Previously on "The Mist..."
- Every act of destruction is an act of creation.
That is why the Black Spring is here.
- If I see you touching her,
I will put a bullet
in whatever body part you touch her with.
- What can I do? - Find me a room.
- Hey! You can't do this! - Watch me.
- What do you think they're gonna say
when they know you have your own supply?
- Help!
It was Alex. I saw her running away from here.
- No one could love you. - Alex loves me.
- Until she finds someone that can -- her.
- I did. - Adrian, please. Please, don't.
- I'm sorry. [ cocks gun ]
- Adrian, what happened?
[ crying ] - He's dead.
[ music ]
- Oh...
[ deep breaths ]
- Hold on. It's me. It's me. - Where are they?
- Th-they're gone. Come on. Follow me.
Come on. - Okay.
Come on.
Come on. Hurry.
This way.
- My God. - Come on.
Hurry. We have to get inside.
[ Panting ] - Where is he?
- Where's who?
KEVIN: Adrian.
The kid I was with.
- He was in the car with your friends.
Yeah, they all thought you were dead.
You're lucky I wanted to stay behind.
- I have to go.
I have to go now.
- I don't think you're going anywhere, man.
You've got a massive lump on your head.
- You don't understand. That kid's a monster.
He raped--
He raped my daughter.
I have to get to them.
- We should have checked just to be sure.
- Yeah, so we all could have died?
- I told you it was too late.
- Why'd he do it?
Your dad?
- When I was 11.
Some tiny-dicked jackass beat my face to shit.
He said faggots weren't allowed on school grounds.
When I got home, my mom freaked.
She drove me to the kid's house
and forced him to apologize.
Then we got back home and the fun started.
My dad called me a pussy.
If I was getting my ass kicked,
there must have been a reason.
Then he beat the shit out of both of us.
This is just him trying to finish what he started.
[ door unlocking ]
- There's half an energy bar and some water.
- Why bother? - Excuse me?
- Feeding me.
Why not just let me die?
- Because I'm not a sociopath like you.
- You either want me dead or you let me go.
- Didn't realize you were calling the shots here.
- Please. Just let me out of here.
I promise to leave her alone.
- I can't trust you.
- I care about her. - Shut your mouth.
- I didn't touch her that night.
EVE: You keep saying that.
You're just like your father,
always blaming others for your own failures.
- That's one more thing you're wrong about.
He thinks I raped her, too.
Father of the -- year.
- If you're looking for pity, look elsewhere.
- I never imagined I'd feel so safe in a sewer.
- I'm glad you approve.
- You sure you know where you're going?
- This line goes all the way to the mall.
Had to come down here once or twice.
This guy, he had just robbed one of the stores in the mall,
stole a bunch of cash and shit.
We looked at all the security tapes,
but that guy just disappeared.
He wasn't inside the mall.
So we searched the whole building,
found the sewer line.
Figured that's the way he went, so I followed.
- Did you capture him?
- We heard him scream.
Pundik and I, we caught up to him,
asked him what happened.
He saw a bunch of rats.
He was terrified of them.
NATHALIE: They're incredible survivors, you know.
Even through the worst of times.
- Yeah, and they carry the worst diseases.
Can we keep moving?
NATHALIE: Humans carry diseases, too.
It's the endless cycle of life and death.
- You know what? I don't want to talk about rats anymore.
- You're sure this is what we're meant to do?
- You're not here to question Her path.
We're only survivors just like the rats.
- We have a problem.
- What's the matter?
- Shelley's dead.
EVE: What?
What happened?
- Gus found her body. She was beaten to death.
- Do they know who did it?
- I heard them talking about Alex.
They're blaming her.
- They're going to come after her.
Where is she?
- She went out to look for Jay.
- I'll find her. Then we need to leave.
- How are we going to get anywhere without a car?
Nothing's working. - Look for a map.
We'll find the closest public building,
and we'll make a run for it.
[ knock on door ]
- We've got a full panic on our hands.
- I'm aware of that.
- Then what are you going to do about Alex,
other than hide up here?
- What are they saying?
- They're saying we need to find Alex.
They're calling for her to hang.
They think she's evil.
- That's a bit of a stretch.
- You saw her kill a woman, right?
- Yeah.
- Sounds evil to me.
Now what do you want to do about it?
- Well, we can't have a murderer walking around.
- Right.
- We'll send her out into the mist.
- Now what do we do about Eve?
- I don't know yet.
[ rustling ]
- Hey, you hungry?
- No, thanks.
[ sigh ]
Why'd you stay?
- I found an old TV antenna on top of the roof.
Figured I could use it to boost my radio signal.
Then I found you.
- Glad you did.
How long have I been out?
- Mm, not long.
I tried to wake you up a couple of times.
I read that having a concussion and going to sleep
isn't a good thing.
I figured you needed it.
- I didn't see it.
What was inside of him.
We're about two miles from the mall.
We can make it.
- How?
- House-hop.
Go four or five houses at a time,
break in, wait for it to thin out.
- That'll take forever.
- It'll take as long as it takes.
[ car engine]
[ engine turns off]
[ sigh ]
- You okay?
- How do you want to do this?
- We avoid the people inside.
From what that Vic guy said, we don't want any part of that.
- I'll find them.
You guys can do a supply run.
- You shouldn't go alone. Right?
He's just a kid.
- Sorry to remind you, but you guys are escaped convicts.
If I get caught, I have an excuse.
- What's that?
- My parents are dead, and I have nowhere else to go.
- So you wanna break the lock or is it my turn?
- I've got this.
[ gunshot ]
Are you sure?
- I'm sure.
[ sigh ] - I hate this place.
- Let's go shopping.
- Ready?
- Yeah, just grabbing a few things.
Always be prepared or whatever.
[ suspenseful music playing]
- Come on, come on, come on.
Go, go, go, go, go.
[ pounding ]
[ both panting ]
- Well, maybe three houses at a time
is more conducive to our athletic prowess.
[ suspenseful music playing ]
- Everything happened so fast.
My dad...he came after me.
he jumped in the way.
[ crying ]
It was my idea to check on him.
We shouldn't have even been there.
I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
And all I wanted to do after it happened was find you
to make sure you were okay...
because we're--we're family.
[ sniffs ]
[ sigh ]
[ eerie music ]
- Hello?
- Alex, we have to go.
- What? Go where?
- The other group, they're blaming you for Shelley's death.
- Shelley's dead? I don't understand.
Why would they?-- - Shh.
They're looking for someone to blame.
- What are we gonna do?
- We need to hide until we can figure out a way out of here.
You can't be out in the open.
[ rat squeals ]
- Oh, oh, aah! [ thud ]
- Trevor!
- Help! Help. Ursula.
- It's okay. It's okay. We'll come get you.
We need to climb down.
- We can't carry him.
- What are you waiting for? We need to go get him.
- I think Trevor's journey ends here.
[ Trevor moans ]
- You want to leave him?
After everything we've done for you?
TREVOR: Help me.
[ groans ] Aah!
- Connor, please, please help us.
TREVOR: Ursula.
- Listen to me.
I will climb down there myself.
I'll help him back up.
- Ursula, we can't carry him all the way there.
- Then we will get help.
- When a gazelle is injured, the herd moves on.
Otherwise they'd be eaten by predators.
- My husband is not an animal.
- Oh, that's where you're wrong.
Don't you see?
He'll become part of the circle.
- Connor, please.
- We should move on.
- You crazy bitch! You can't do this to him!
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
That's enough. That's enough.
- She is insane.
We all believed in her,
and now she's just going to abandon him?
- It's okay, Ursula.
It's okay, it's okay.
- Okay.
- I'm not gonna abandon anyone.
- Okay. - It's okay.
You should be with your husband.
- Okay.
No, don't do this.
[ Trevor groans ]
[ rats squealing ] [ both scream ]
- Please don't leave us! Please don't leave us.
[ Trevor groans ]
- Oh, my God! [ door shuts ]
[ muffled screaming ]
[ rats squeaking ]
TREVOR: Please!
[ muffled screams ]
[ footsteps]
- I can't believe you're here.
How did you--
- I've been looking for you for days.
Are you guys okay?
- We're okay.
- How did you get all the way here?
- I...
- Adrian, what happened?
- I was with Kevin.
- You saw my dad?
Is he here? Where is he?
- He's dead.
- No, no.
No, he can't be dead. He's not dead.
No, no.
- I tried to save him, but it was too late.
- How?
- My dad... tried to kill me.
- I don't understand. Why?
- He hated me.
You know how much he hated me.
My mom was dead,
and there was nothing to stop him.
Kevin just got in the way.
He was supposed to stay in the car.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay.
It's okay. I'll protect you.
[ voices ]
GUS: You look down... - They're coming.
We have to go.
Baby, I'm sorry, but we've got to go.
We've got to go. Come on.
[ suspenseful music]
- There's nothing here.
You don't look too good.
- But I have a winning personality.
- Relax.
Go on.
- [ sighs ]
What are we gonna do?
- Get out of here.
- Then what?
- Then we drive.
- Where?
- We'll find a place.
- Play a game with me.
- What kind of game?
- Close your eyes.
You're in the mall, but everything is normal.
- Mia...
- Everything is normal.
- Okay.
MIA: We don't know each other,
and I walk up to you
and you look good.
I look better, of course, but you look good.
I walk up to you, and I take your hand
and ask you what you want most in the entire world.
What do you answer?
- I want to know who I am.
- I tell you that you'll never know.
No one ever does.
Then I whisper that I just ran away from my boyfriend.
Took his money.
You don't have to feel bad. He was a drug dealer.
A bad guy.
- Okay. Not feeling bad.
- [ sighs ]
And then I ask you if you wanna run away with me.
What do you answer?
- Yes.
- I ask you where.
- Um, we go to...
Iowa. Don't laugh.
I want to be under the open sky.
I don't know why, but that's what I want.
To see as far as my eyes reach.
We get a house. Nothing fancy.
I just want to watch the horizon.
I wanna sit there with you
and watch the horizon. Hmm.
- If this thing stops, will you go with me?
I don't want to run anymore.
I need to have a place to go.
- I'll go with you.
- [ sighs ]
I'm so tired of running.
I just can't anymore.
I'm so tired.
So tired.
- Hey.
It's okay.
You need to rest.
- I'm okay.
- No, no, you just detoxed.
You need to rest.
There's a couch in the manager's office.
Get some sleep, and I'll look for food.
The door locks from the inside.
You'll be safe.
- And you? - I've got a gun.
I'll be fine.
- Mm-hmm.
[ music ]
- Any sign of Alex? Eve?
- This is a waste of time.
- You think they've gone?
- No, I mean this whole thing is a waste of time.
Why would Alex kill Shelley?
- Gus said he saw her.
- I know what he said.
[ sigh ]
We're all clear. You should go to bed.
- Where are you going?
- Just have to grab a few things.
[ suspenseful music ]
What are you doing here?
- I didn't think anyone was in here.
Got caught up in all the shit outside.
Hurt my leg.
Figured I could find some supplies.
- You okay? Do you need help?
JONAH: I'm fine.
- My name's Wes.
- Jonah.
- You, uh, traveling solo?
- Yes.
- Well...
Good luck to you.
- Aah!
[ gasping ]
- Jesus.
[ panting ]
- They're from Arrowhead.
- Maybe there's more of them.
- Put the radio down. Now.
- Is that what She wanted?
- You know it is. You can feel it.
You did what needed to be done, just like you always do.
She won't forget your sacrifice.
- I wanted to please Her.
- You did, Connor. You did.
You're a good boy, Her beloved son.
You make Her so happy.
Death supports life.
You're helping life.
Touch him.
Do you feel his love?
Through him, Mother Nature shows you Her love.
I feel your love, too.
- Are you with them?
We're just trying to get to my family.
Just put the gun down.
- How do I know you're telling the truth?
- I guess you don't, but I am.
So either shoot me or put the goddamn gun down.
What happened here?
- I saw what they were doing,
what they'd done.
- What do you mean? - The Army.
They were everywhere. Everything was on fire.
I don't know what's real anymore.
- Is there anyone else here? - Why?
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, Relax, relax.
I just wanted to make sure everyone was safe.
- My wife, she never made it back from the store.
[ gunshot ] [ glass breaking ]
- I need you to let us leave.
- You'll tell them. They'll come for me.
- Look, I'm not gonna tell anybody anything.
To be perfectly honest, I don't give a shit about you.
Do you understand?
[ thud ]
- I've always wanted to do that.
- All right, we need to grab everything we can find.
Guns, ammunitions, radio,
anything that might be useful.
- Found something useful.
If it's a military car, it might work.
- [ groaning ]
- I'm sorry about your wife.
- They're gonna kill us all.
- I promise I won't tell anybody you're here.
- I know you won't.
[ explosion ]
[ grunting ]
No. No. No.
[ panting ]
No. No
[ echoing siren ]
- Where did you go?
Where did you go? [ echoing ]
Hey, kiddo.
You left me. [ echoing ]
You left me, kid. [ echoing ]
You left me, kiddo. [ echoing ]
- Hey, do you want to know
what the devil really looks like?
The evil one is coming.
He wants to see you.
He's here.
[ panting ]
- I see you.
- Ahh!
[ panting ]
[ engine ]
VIC: What the hell happened to you?
KEVIN: Just go. Just go.
- [ crying ]
- If there's a service exit,
it might lead to the parking lot.
If we can get into a car, even if it isn't working,
at least it'll be safer than staying here.
- My friends have a car. It works.
- What friends?
- We met them at the police station.
- Can you trust them?
- They didn't have to bring me here.
- Okay.
Okay, come on.
- There! Right there!
WOMAN: Eve! Stop!
GUS: Down. Slower down.
[ suspenseful music ]
- Mom! My mom needs help.
- Go, go, go!
Come on!
Come on, come on.
- Good morning.
- What now?
- Let's stop this, Eve.
- Alex didn't do anything. You have to know that.
- I saw her.
- Did you kill her?
Is that why you're lying?
Oh! - Mom!
- Who the hell is this? - Who the hell are you?
- Lock them up. - Did you kill Jay, too?
- What? No. I didn't kill anyone.
Is Jay...
Is he dead?
- No one has seen him in days.
- I haven't either. I swear.
- Alex, just tell the truth. - Come on.
- I am. I was looking for him when all this started.
- Oh, how convenient. - Leave her alone!
She doesn't know where he is,
but I do.
- Alex.
- Jay.
Are you okay?
- Are you ready for Her embrace?
- I am.
[ foreboding music ]
- What was that back there?
- A reminder.
- I'm gonna stay here.
If that's cool, I mean.
- Keep an eye out.
- Do you know how long we've been looking for you?
Since before any of this happened.
I've been here with all these...civilians
trying to make my way,
and you just walk across my path.
Do you...
Do you really have no idea who I am?
- No. No, I don't.
- The captain's not gonna be so happy to hear that.
- You know me?
- Of course I know you.
I'm just happy you're safe, sir.
