Previously on “Night Zero,” two different people needed to work together in order to stop the viral outbreak. Ephraim “Eph” Goodweather (Corey Stoll) sought the help of a former Jew prisoner and now a Harlem pawnbroker Professor Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley).
In “The Box,” the episode picked up with Abe and Eph as they continue on with their lives. Abe was visited by his former enemy, the immortal Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel). They had a heated talk over their shared first outbreak while Abe was imprisoned among the Jews. In the next few episodes, we might find out the identity the unlucky lady who owned the heart that possessed by Abe.
Gus (Miguel Gomez) successfully transferred the coffin beyond the river. It was pointed out that the transfer would be the start of the Master’s (Robert Maillet) return. Eldritch Palmer (Jonathan Hyde), on the other hand, was interested on making a deal with the Master. He planned on being cured from his liver failure with the help of the Master.
Elsewhere, Eph remained true to his words that he would investigate about the viral incident. He came from a court session for the custody of Zach (Ben Hyland) from his ex-wife, Kelly (Natalie Brown). Later, he and Nora (Mia Maestro) learned that the four remaining survivors from Regis Flight 753 were released by CDC Director Dr. Everett Barnes (Daniel Kash).
After getting out of the quarantine, the lucky passengers seemed to possess some serious side effects from all of it. Their symptoms included falling hair, gum bleeding and a thirst for blood. The rockstar named Gabe bit the neck of a girl in an orgy. The pilot was examined with several worms under his skin while a half-dead girl sucked her father’s neck for blood.
