Z Nation S4E? : "Lost Souls"
DESOLATE ROAD - DAY
Addy walks alone along a deserted road, looking like a cat after a fight as a storm brews dangerously behind her. Lightning flashes in her eyes as she gives a rueful sidelong glance over her shoulder at the rumble of thunder signaling she needs to find shelter, only to be caught off guard by an explosion ahead of her.
HORIZON - DAY
On the horizon a puff of black smoke rises from the trees ahead as heavy drops of rain begin to fall, soaking Addy.
Addy cocks a brow and a smile tugs at the corner of her lips as drops of rain tendril her hair and drip from the ends.
(sarcastically) Well, there's a sign of life. (with a tinge of jade) Or more death.
EXT. NEWMERICA - DAY (STORMING)
Addy approaches a dilapidated trailer park with a makeshift sign of dented metal spray painted to read: 'Welcome to Newmerica', which promptly falls free on one side and swings from a loose hinge pathetically. There's a small pop in the flames of a mobile home that burns beyond the entrance, stirring up a nearby murder of crows and sending them dramatically across the sky.
ADDY - DAY (STORMING)
Addy looks pissed by what she sees and her demeanor visibly suffers, shoulders slouching as she sighs in defeat, talking to herself.
This can't be Newmerica. Looks more like a trap.
QUICK CUT TO:
EXT. NEWMERICA ENTRANCE
SunMei, looking traumatized, struggles with each step as she exits 'Newmerica', holding Red up at her side, clearly wounded but alive. She lays Red down under the shelter of a tree just outside and kneels to tend to her, not having noticed Addy just a few paces away in her concern.
Addy's eyes go wide in recognition as she sees her two friends exiting the hellish looking 'Newmerica' trap and immediately rushes to their side.
(breathless, exhausted) SunMei? Red? (stressed) What happened?
SUNMEI AND RED
SunMei looks up at Addy, eyes teary and face showing her distressed state and she reaches out to grasp her friend's hands. Red shivers and clutches herself on the ground, seemingly delirious.
We tried to save them, Addy. We tried... (fades off sobbing)
