What was once believed to be a blessing becomes the Mallrats’ worst nightmare when it’s discovered that the mysterious old man seen wandering the streets is actually GLEN, who now has the virus and has begun rapidly aging— and he’s not the only one out there. Is the virus contagious? If so, are the Mallrats now infected?
PATSY has come face-to-face with the mysterious adult wandering about and convinces him to come back to the mall in hopes that he’ll help restore order and hope to the group. However, back at the mall, LEX has organized a trial in an effort to expel BRAY. And TRUDY finds herself once again worried about SALENE’s bulimia.
JACK believes he’s made a discovery that could potentially change the lives of everyone: an adult wandering the streets! But can he get the others to believe him? In the meantime, BRAY convinces the tribe to clean and decorate the mall to liven the place up. To everyone’s surprise LEX is on board from the start. But is this just another of LEX’s tricks to boot BRAY from power?
SASHA’s departure has left AMBER depressed and unable to let go, leading to further power struggles with LEX. LEX’s distaste for the situation is only inflamed after BRAY offers to step up for the tribe. And despite RYAN’s reassurance that he will watch over her, SALENE’s bulimia threatens to rear its ugly head once again.
RYAN and SALENE become considerably closer as he helps her escape her newfound prison and she entrusts her secrets to him. Having decided to leave the tribe, AMBER and SASHA return to the mall to find the gang in shambles. Can AMBER truly leave the only family she’s had since the virus struck months earlier?
With the place in complete disarray, TRUDY is becoming increasingly frustrated with being the only person who works around the mall. JACK wants to become more mobile and enlists DAL and KC to make it happen. Meanwhile ROANNE and DIRK use SALENE’s addiction against her, taking her prisoner. And another day spent with SASHA at the beach leads AMBER to a very dramatic situation.
LEX and ZANDRA celebrate their honeymoon away from the others, while AMBER and SASHA spend their own time away. RYAN and BRAY have taken to sulking. Elsewhere, SALENE makes a deal with ROANNE that could go terribly awry.
The mall is hopping with everyone working on the upcoming wedding of ZANDRA and LEX. While some of the girls help ZANDRA prepare for the big day, TAI SAN meditates for the young couple, and JACK and DAL work feverishly on getting the fountain operational for the ceremony. Afterwards, the boys partake in a little — or a lot — of the cider they procured in the trade with the farm tribe, leading to disastrous results. Meanwhile, SALENE has taken to stealing other Mallrats’ personal items for bartering with ROANNE.
SALENE is warned by ROANNE to bring items to barter for food next time she comes to the warehouse. Meanwhile, to make good on ZANDRA’s desire for a nice wedding meal, SASHA leads a group to trade with another tribe living at a nearby farm. But despite BRAY’s warning to leave the mall after the wedding ceremony, SASHA finds himself getting even closer with AMBER.
A lot more food has gone missing, and people are starting to notice. SASHA is becoming more and more a favorite among the Mallrats, including AMBER. BRAY, however, isn’t nearly as keen on SASHA’s presence. With DAL, now back home and in tight with JACK, KC is beginning to feel left out. Meanwhile, as RYAN finally agrees to write LEX’s vows for him, ZANDRA tries to convince AMBER to officiate their ceremony. And SALENE may have finally met her match when her bulimia sets her off on a mission to find more food, leading her to stumble upon what appears to be an abandoned warehouse.
Food continues to go missing from the supply, and though TRUDY has forgiven SALENE the wrongdoing, she encourages her to come clean to the rest of the group. With the date for ZANDRA’s and LEX’s nuptials officially set, LEX tries to convince RYAN to write the wedding vows for him. The Mallrats vote to make SASHA an official member of their tribe, but is he finally ready to settle down?
While JACK scours the conference for the copper wire necessary to get his turbine working, the others look for alternate ways of getting out alive. TAI-SAN continues the breakdancing competition, but due to a risky agreement between AMBER and EBONY, the stakes are now considerably higher than before. Back at home, SALENE tries to keep her harmful secret between PATSY and herself.
The Mallrats travel to meet with the other tribes to trade goods and service and to help ensure peace between gangs, but BRAY’s promise of a technology to restore the tribes’ power may be a bit premature. TAI SAN uses her grace to represent the Mallrats in a dance competition, LEX comes face to face with an old friend, and KC spots DAL, who’s on his way to becoming a slave. Meanwhile, back at the mall PATSY stumbles upon SALENE’s secret.
The Nomads have decided against DAL’s leaving the tribe and have taken him prisoner. SASHA’s attempt to release him lands him in custody as well – but what do the Nomads have in store for their prisoners? Back at the mall, a heartbroken ZANDRA confronts RYAN over his involvement in keeping LEX’s affair with TAI SAN a secret, and LEX begs for yet another chance with his former intended.
