After an attack in the woods outside Ithaca, NY, Pete and Myka travel to the scene to find a man in his 30s shivering, with cold breath and gnawing on a deer. As the teeth marks in the victim resembled that of humans, Pete's mind wanders to zombies. Myka, unconvinced, treats Pete to a burrito at Manny's Taco Truck. As they visit the most recent attack site, Pete is bitten and becomes the newest victim. Much to their surprise, Myka, not Pete, begins to develop symptoms similar to the victims. The connection: a 19th-century mason jar in Manny's Taco Truck. Pete destroys the tip jar on-site. Since agent Steve Jinks left the Warehouse, he has been cold to Claudia, his supposed best friend. As she calls him, excited she will be jamming with the band Dead Rent, Steve claims their friendship is over. To worsen the mood, a fortune telling machine tells Claudia her life will end by midnight. Luckily, Leena shows Claudia the machine is fixed and there is nothing to worry about. As Steve sits alone and depressed in a bar, with a rejected credit card and no way of paying for his drinks, he is approached by Marcus Diamond. Marcus proposes Steve joins his team -- where he will be fully appreciated. Steve, weak in his sadness, accepts.
