Us Or Them
When an angry husband tries to snatch his wife away from the support group of people who were found in an altered state after the hurricane, the other survivors gather around him and attack viciously, almost killing him. Mariel cuts the attack short and demands that someone call 911 – and finds no one willing to do so. Later, Russell and Dave confront Mariel with the human remains they’ve found – the remains of Sheriff Tom Underlay, with the remains of an unidentified creature wrapped around him. Mariel storms away, accusing Russell of trying to wrest custody of the children away from her. But the revelation unnerves her enough to demand answers from Tom – or at least who appears to be Tom. After convincing him to cut off his own new arm, Tom insists that Deputy Sirk should recuperate at the Underlay household, but he lies to Kira, telling her that Sirk is recovering from a gunshot wound. When Tom tries to explain Mariel’s situation to her, she threatens to leave him unless she gets the whole truth; she later meets Russell and admits to some very confused feelings, and Russell returns home equally confused. But when Russell learns that Larkin dropped his children off with Tom, he rushes to the Underlays’ house to find the children gone, Tom gone, Sirk gone, and Mariel in shock.
