Synopsis
There is a group text between ATHENA (Adult), DOUG (middle-aged), TED (middle-aged), LIBERTY (middle-aged), JULIUS (early 70’s), OLIVER (Adult), MIRANDA (early 70’s), MARTIN (middle-aged), and RICHARD (middle-aged) talking about where to go for dinner, and an event called The Hunt held at The Manor, which includes slaughtering “inbred rednecks”. Miranda exclaims that they’re not to talk about The Manor on text. Liberty deletes the thread. Richard harasses a flight attendant on a private jet when a man wearing full denim stumbles into the main cabin, drooling and unable to form sentences. The flight attendant, Richard and THE DOCTOR (middle-aged) are completely freaked out at this. Other sleeping bodies in the back of the plane start to stir as well.

In a private bedroom, Athena is awakened by noises of a fight. She comes out and kills the man in denim, and orders the men to put him back with the others. DAISY (?) wakes in the woods, gagged with a lock so that she can’t take it off. Daisy notices that there are many others, maybe ten, across the woods that are gagged, and just waking. They find a crate with weapons and other survival supplies that they all fight over....
