With Cobalt about to be initiated, the group prepares to evacuate the neighborhood as well as rescue Liza, Griselda, and Nick, with Adams agreeing to be their guide. Adams privately warns Travis that Daniel will kill Adams when his usefulness has ended, and Travis decides to release him. They then proceed to the National Guard's headquarters. Daniel distracts the guards at the headquarters by leading a horde of walkers from the arena to the perimeter. Travis, Madison, Daniel, and Ofelia infiltrate the base, while Alicia and Chris stay behind with their vehicles. Inside the base, Strand and Nick initiate their escape plan, with Strand callously leaving the other detainees behind. Meanwhile, the walkers manage to breach the perimeter defenses and begin to swarm the base. Travis' group comes across the holding cells and sets the detainees free before reuniting with Nick, Liza, and Strand. They try to escape through the medical ward, where they discover Dr. Exner has euthanized all of the patients. Dr. Exner tells them of an escape route before presumably committing suicide. Before they can escape, the group encounters Adams, who shoots Ofelia in the arm. Enraged, Travis brutally beats Adams and leaves him for dead. Strand leads the group to his oceanside mansion, where he reveals to Nick that he owns a yacht just off the coast called the Abigail, which he plans to escape on. On the beach, Liza reveals to Madison that she had been bitten during the escape. Liza pleads with Madison and Travis to euthanize her before she turns. Travis promises to protect Chris before shooting Liza. Afterwards, Madison tries to comfort Travis in his grief.
