Plot Summary

After a flashback looking at the events that took place on "Z-Day", Takashi and Rei ride through the city at midnight on a motorcycle. The streets are abandoned and the city is a ghost of its former self. They spy a ruined police car and scavenge a revolver and a few other items from its deceased owner.

At a gas station while Takashi helps himself to the spoils of the cash register inside, Rei is accosted by another survivor who puts a knife to her neck. After having his family become Them he had to kill them, and it has pushed him over the edge.

Takashi tries to reason with the survivor, but to no avail. After being threatened as well Takashi pulls out the revolver and shoots the survivor in the chest at point blank range. The shot doesn't kill the man, but his screams draw the attention of Them, as Rei and Takashi ride away to leave the man to his fate.
