Well, it has to be said, that as mid season finale’s go, Z Nation managed to pull out all the stops to leave fans of the SyFy show gasping, and the show’s end credits say they will be returning in 2015. Really? Looking at the last few frames of the show and Citizen Z’s “I hate the apocalypse,” there won’t be too much to return to. Although on the bright side, Mack is still alive, so apparently all that gunfire back in the Sisters of Mercy episode missed its intended target. It does look as though Addy and Mack are not together, but at least there are two of the “save Murphy” crew left.
After all that Mack and Addy have gone through together, Z Nation piled on the pressure for these two love birds in Sisters of Mercy. The pair follow Citizen Z’s instructions and after the redhead kills four zombies, doing a version of Cinderella, the couple stumble into Lt. Warren and the remainder of the Murphy group. Addy once again acts pretty strange when the reunited survivors stumble across “Chester” whose head Addy immediately pulverizes with her bat.
It has to be said, that Z Nation is getting better, at least in terms of esoteria being left behind while still holding on to the grim humor; there is a zombie stampede in Nebraska and the group discover that in that state, no one can hear you scream. The dual plot this week had the little group of survivors, tasked with saving the world, along with Murphy trapped in a town enveloped by a hoard of stampeding, or migrating, undead. The wandering zombies take over the little burg and Murphy’s tired, dehydrated group lack the energy to do much more than hide from the encroaching tide of a zombie tsunami, or as the episode title calls it, a zunami.
Z Nation finally gets down to what was apparently their target all along, Z Nado. It seems a foregone conclusion that the company who brought Sharknado one and two to SyFy would feel compelled to add a little tornado action in this tongue-in-cheek zombie fest. Before the twisters come in and start slinging zombies all over the place, the team take a time out for some R & R along with a little additional bonding.
