Murphy's Effect
28 November 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Murphy activates the nuclear weapons attack, and Warren, Doc and 10k survive in a tunnel. Meanwhile Citizen Z destroys zombies from a military plane that crashed near Northern Light and then he broadcasts a message promising a large bounty the delivery of Murphy to the CDC. Mack meets Addy and she tells that Sam has burned the camp to the ground and released the zombie bear, destroying the compound and killing the Sisters of Mercy. They travel together expecting to find the rest of the group. Murphy changes his skin and when he is captured by a bounty hunter, Cassandra, who is half human half zombie, saves him. Warren leaves Doc with 10k to seek water and supplies. She decides to suicide, but she sees a girl attacked by zombies and saves her. In return, her family feeds her and provides supplies for her friends. When she returns, she meets also Addy and Mack with Doc and 10k. The group seeks out Murphy in a nightclub, but they also stumble with a bounty hunter. Who will catch Murphy?

"The Murphy" is an episode where the world has become a worst place due to the attitude of the selfish Murphy. Now the survivors need to deal with nuclear dust in addition of the zombies. The message of Citizen Z has attracted all sorts of bounty hunters with his words. And Serena with Murphy's baby is weird. My vote is seven.
