The survivors of the Nixon Center escape struggle in a post-apocalyptic world where the walking dead aren't the biggest threats.

Working from a remote, mountain cabin, Dr. Howard Nixon is determined to salvage what is left of his experiment.

Allison escapes him, clinging to life and with no idea what's happened in the world.

Zach is looking for her, but time is running out.

Reid lives holed up in the Nixon Center and waits for his revenge.

Tension is high as both Miranda and Carlene's pregnancies come to term. Miranda, faced with the possibility that her delivery might cause her to become infected, is forced to seek help from the only other person who knows what has happened: Dr. Michael Waters, the physician who sent her to Dr. Nixon in the first place.

All roads lead back to Strandville where grudges resurface and old decisions must be answered for. Scott, Miranda, and Michael return to the center to face-off against their pasts and each other as Michael's secret agenda comes to light.

I have difficulty speaking and signing coherently because of an unnamed neurological condition, which I call Cerebral Palsy for now. Creating is way to express my soul - voice in a way that others can hear and respond to. When I create, it feels like something spiritual guides me. I need to continue my spiritual path, and that is through expressing myself. Art connects me to my Spiritual Self. My art flows from my Spiritual Self. I am self taught. I work with acrylics, pencil, charcoal, pen, pastels, felt pen, collage, and my cat. I am also a potter, writer, poet, actress, dancer, music composer, and musician. I have also created, written, produced, and directed a video. I sometimes mix these media to create something. Each piece of my art is unique; I paint slowly and meticulously for one, and fast and impatient for another. Each has its own 'personality': One will have vibrant, wild, lush colours, and another will have shy, withdrawn, tame, muted colours. Some are whimsical, and others are serious. My work shows how I feel right at the moment of creation. I have different inspirations: a memory, a movie, an image, another piece of art, visions, words, myself, an event, and my cat! What will come out, I never know. My preferred subjects include nature,magic, hidden words, and my cat. I have been involved with an art experience group for the past year. This has enabled me to explore my creativity in a supportive envrironment with other deaf artists. This weekly group has acted as a springboard to encourage me to take professional classes and to show my art publicly. Over the past two years, my work has been exhibited in several galleriies, icluding: the CityScape Art Space, the Artists Helping Artists in Burnaby, a deaf art show at the Vancouver Community College, and Art Pars, and the Harmony Arts Festival this year with their 'Art Beat'! I am excited with the growing interest in my work and my evolution as an artist. With my arts and through my images, I can be heard. I believe this is my way to freedom, and spirituality. Most importantly, art is my way out of that well.
