SUMMARY:  Angie, Rod and Sherry arrive at Stan's apartment to find he's already been bitten and is beginning to transform into a zombie. They find a tape in which he reports that it looked like the zombified people were getting better. He got into a fight with Ray and shoved him out the window, then felt bad about it and climbed after him... and got bitten. He asks them to shoot him when they find him... but he also starts to enjoy the transformation. Angie can't bring herself to kill the zombified Stan, so she restrains him instead, then hugs him tight.
