Nick gets ready to go to his mom's club—when zombies attack.
But this time, they're real zombies. Rotting. Stinky. Crusty old zombies.
Our heroes fight off the zombies from inside the store, but when Madaug fires a rocket launcher (how did he learn how to do that?) and blows up the storefront, the inside of the store becomes the outside.
Acheron and Kyrian conveniently show up to help evacuate our heroes from the store.
Nick wants to rescue his mom, so they zip over to the club first to protect her.
Nick's mom doesn't want to go with them, so Bubba shoots her with a tranquilizer dart and puts her into the SUV. Kids, don't shoot your mom with a tranq at home.
Before reaching Kyrian's house, Bubba gets a call from Madaug's older brother. He tells them that his mother and little brother are missing.
Madaug wants to go check it out.
The cops are at Madaug's house, and the kitchen is torn up and bloody. Clearly, Mom wasn't just making pancakes.
While everyone is hanging around Madaug's house, Nekoda shows up. Nick is happy to see her.
Nick tells Kody it's dangerous out there, and she thinks it's sweet that he's trying to protect her. She kisses him on the cheek.
Kody leaves, and Caleb warns Nick to stay away from her. "Girls ain't nothing but trouble" (14.262).
But Nick loves trouble.
"That girl is your death" (14.265), Caleb elaborates. That's a little extreme, don't you think?
But then Nick has a vision of Kody driving a literal sword through his heart. Um, envisioning your date murdering you is a big red flag.
