Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains spoilers for this episode!
Synopsis: Laurel (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Gustav (Johnny Ray Gill) and Rochelle (Nikki M. James) grow more determined to discover the mystery behind the change in people’s behavior as well as the numerous head explosions.
Kitty Cameo: In one scene Gustav is in his apartment setting up bug traps everywhere and taping red plastic cups over his ears as he plays the Cars You Might Think to attract the screwworms. A tabby cat is sitting in its bed in the room.
Gustav wakes up hearing one of the traps moving and jumps up to grab the trap and run out the door. The cat is still sitting in its bed on the floor. The screwworms, which have been trying to get into Gustav’s ears, start to move toward the cat.
At the end of the episode Gustav returns to the apartment after learning only a cockroach was caught in the trap. He is crawling on the floor using a listening device when he hears his cat meow strangely behind him. He looks at the cat and sighs, “Damn!” We will learn in the next episode that the cat’s name is Zeke.
Final Mewsings: Don’t leave your cat behind when you’re trying to trap screwworms!
