Battered and weakened from the collapse of their last chapel, the faith of Paul's Believers has been tested near to breaking. But the darkest hour will soon break, as the voice of the "Father" returns to Paul, leading them to recovering the great Babel Tower. Meanwhile, "Alpha Zeke" pushes the survivors of the Refuge south through the brutal badlands on a hike towards Corinth. Is there hope of rescue? And at what cost?

S3 Episode 5: The Depot

In their quest to find "Sanctuary," Lucian and Queenie find a door... And behind that door, lies answers. These answers may help them understand their broken world, but will it give them any way to fight against the demagogues lose on the land? Elsewhere, Luke, Maria, and Marc stare rapt as Abraham unlocks the power of the Orb. Can this Beforetimes power be harnessed by the likes of humans, or will it drown everyone under 500 feet of water?

To conquer the Refuge and take the northern territory for himself. It will take all the gumption, wit, and bravery of the unified Dwellers and Refugers to stop this menace from destroying the last threads of civilization in the north lands.
