Story intro

After an outbreak of a mutated form of rabies that spreads from animals to humans, humanity is losing the war. People who are bitten turn rabid in 90 seconds. Morgan (Matt Smith) was riding in a car with his wife Janet (Agyness Deyn) when they were attacked. He was infected, but remained human with the ability to talk with the infected. In order to find an antidote to save humanity, including his infected wife, Morgan and a CDC doctor, along with the US Army, bring in the infected and interrogate them. CDC virologist Dr. Gina Rose (Natalie Dormer), struggles with tensions between herself, Morgan, and Colonel Knox (Clive Standen). Dr. Rose and Col. Knox had an intimate relationship in the past. His jealousy of Dr. Rose's budding relationship with Morgan causes hostility. While interrogating an infected, Col. Knox shoots the uncooperative infected, killing it. Morgan goes to the restroom to help control his temper. Dr. Rose follows and the two engage in intense sex. Knox realizes that Dr. Rose has feelings for Morgan and confronts her. Getting closer to finding patient zero, we see Morgan's wife is being held in a cage in the underground base. She is being treated with an experimental treatment derived from Morgan's blood. In a flashback, Morgan wanted to have children with his wife, while she didn't want any. Dr. Rose is shown with a positive pregnancy test. Bodies of fallen soldiers are brought in to the crematorium. One of the "dead" opens his eyes and attacks the workers and soldiers. After a fight, he is subdued and asks to speak with the one who can communicate with the infected. Because he is unaffected by the music that has driven the other infected into a rage, they assume he is patient zero or closely linked to patient zero. Morgan begins to interrogate him. The man reveals that he was a professor and his school was attacked by the infected. He was bitten, but still maintains most of his human abilities. He tells Morgan that the infected are evolved humans, a more advanced species who are at the top of the food chain. He came to the underground base on purpose. Worried, Morgan finds that another of the infected has a transmitter inside his chest. He realizes now the infected know where they are.
