Furiosa is driving the truck, called the War Rig, on the way to Gas Town. The road is empty, straight, and barren. Worst road trip ever.
Cut to Max, sitting in a cage somewhere in the compound, looking up at light shining down from a shaft above.
We learn that a "half-life" is sick, so a man in charge—who's called, we'll learn, the Organic Mechanic—tells someone to hook him up to the "full-life"...by which he means Max. Is this where that whole "universal donor" thing comes in?
Cut back to Furiosa. On the way to Gas Town, she abruptly changes course, veering off the road.
With a look of pure determination. Furiosa indeed.
The war boys follow her, and one of them rides on her running board "Boss, we're not going to Gas Town?"
All Furiosa says is "we're heading east." Um, okay. Not super helpful, but the war boys will follow her lead.
