With the zombie gone, the four head to the staircase. Bobby asks Rose if she is OK, as she begins to feel the negative effects of t-Virus infection. Heading up to the roof - where a gondola is based - Linda sees smoke rise from around the city in the rain as it burns. Rose announces no longer feeling regret in her life, finding peace with herself despite her former difficulties in family life. Bobby celebrates, raising how excited he is to live with her and how she can play Piano all the time. Rose sees otherwise. She hugs her grandson, and Linda promises to look after him for her.
As zombies make their way upstairs, Linda gives Bobby a floppy disc containing Jill's medical records which can still be used in a neighbouring city. Linda persuades Rose to go on the gondola with her and Bobby, and Linda fires at the zombies approaching as they go down. The three get in a car and drive out of town; Rose gives directions to a nearby branch office down a road by Raccoon River. In the car ride, Bobby no longer feels lonely, and Rose says they'll be together forever.
As they reach the riverside, the car is set upon by a pack of Hunters migrating out of the city. A Hunter rips through the roof. Bobby falls out of the car as Linda loses control of the car and it drives into the riverbank, bursting into flame.
