Characters that either got along or did not get along before have to stick together now as the world they know is about to be changed before their eyes.


Patrick Star discovers something other worldly eating a dead snail corpse in an alley way and it is not a typical living cannibal. The figure then notices Patrick and starts chasing him through the alley way. Patrick luckily escapes but is fear-stricken and worrying nearby bystanders. Meanwhile, Spongebob, Squidward and Mr.Krabs notice a lot of sick customers coming in with one with a bite mark on the neck which concerns Sandy who is sitting at a nearby table. Sandy asks the bitten man how he got the bite, the man said some jerk jumped him a few miles back and bit him on his left shoulder. Sandy then takes out her I-Phone going to report this to Bikini Bottom LIVE. Patrick then arrives spazzing out about what he saw, Mr.Krabs slaps him across the face which controls Patrick. As Patrick is about to say what he saw, News reports coming from a Spazzy teenage newsreporter on the Krusty Krab TV then catch the attention of Spongebob and the others mentioning a mysterious virus killing people and reanimating them into dead cannibal freaks. The spazzy news reporter is then tackled to the ground by two infected and devoured. Spongebob and the others are confused as the episode concludes.
