Scene shifts to the cabin where Zeke is recovering.
ZEKE: Am I dead?
MICHAELA: Yes, it is. And you did.
MICHAELA: We’re still trying to figure that out.
MICHAELA: Look, why don’t you walk me through everything that you remember? You said that you were hiking, right?
ZEKE: And then this just monster blizzard hit, came out of nowhere.
MICHAELA: So then you took shelter in the cave?
ZEKE: I was packed in. I mean, I didn’t have the tools or the strength to break through the snow and ice. I tried.
MICHAELA: That’s where you got the cuts, from trying to dig yourself out?
ZEKE: Mm. Didn’t work.
Zeke rotates his left wrist.
MICHAELA: Can I change those?
Zek places his thermos on the floor.
MICHAELA: So, then you remember two weeks passing?
ZEKE: Thought that was it for me.
MICHAELA: How’d you get out of the cave?
ZEKE: Earthquake or avalanche or something. Whole mountain shook, and the ice broke away enough for me to crawl out and, make my way to the first place I found. And to the dead girl I kept telling myself to find.
MICHAELA: Except I wasn’t dead. And I heard you.
ZEKE: And my list of questions grows.
Zeke wants to stay
ZEKE: I-I think I’m actually just gonna stay up here for a while. This place has great cocoa.
ZEKE: I’m fine, really. I just need some time to process everything before I go back to civilization.
ZEKE: Sorry. I’m not going. Not yet.
MICHAELA: I’ll stay with him.
BEN: What are you doing? This guy’s got to come with us so Saanvi can check him out. He could hold the key to everything that happened to us. 828 defied the known laws of physics. We’ve got to figure out how the hell a cave did the same thing. There has to be a connection.
MICHAELA: Yeah, exactly. And since he’s clearly not coming, I’ll stay here and figure out as much as we can.
BEN: All right. I-I-It Just find out as many details as you can about what happened to him. Look for specific times, locations—
MICHAELA: What? Why are you hesitating?
BEN: What’s the first thing you wanted to do when the plane landed and we found out?
MICHAELA: No. No [SIGHS] I don’t think we should involve him. It’s complicated. I just I don’t want to be around him right now.
BEN: Okay. You sure you’re all right?
MICHAELA: Yeah. Go. I got this.
BEN: Be safe.
