They will discover that the water may be no safer than land.

The family they encounter on this island are survivalists, especially the father. However, Salazar remains on the as he tries to uncover what Strand is up to. He seems to be a very suspicious man. His back story is yet to be discovered as well. As Travis and Madison seek out help from this family, they start have suspect them of other motives. The island seems safe...as long as they remain vigilante since the dead continue to wash up on the coast. Travis learns quite a bit of what has happened throughout the west coast. Seems that George has been learning about what has happened via radio....he's been in contact with various stations...be it military and/or other radio stations.
