With the generator running out of fuel and Paul needing medical help, Luke suggests going to Chicago, having seen the live video feed. He and Rosemary go into the street to retrieve one of the abandoned trucks. In the street, Rosemary ignores Luke's warnings that the sound of a baby crying is just the darkness trying to trick her.
She is lured under a solitary street light, and disappears when the light goes out. Back at the bar, the generator runs low on fuel causing the lights to flicker. James, wearing a glow-stick necklace, is safe, but Paul vanishes. Luke manages to push a truck back to the bar, and he escapes with James using the generator to get the truck started.
As they pass the church up the block, James gets out to find his mother.

When Luke gets out of the truck at the church, the car battery dies, its lights go out and Luke disappears. James cowers in the church under the glow of candles which slowly start to burn out.
James wakes to daylight and sees the last candle had been burning all night. A little girl, Briana, appears and urges James to stay with her.
She has survived thanks to a solar powered flashlight, although James is aware that eventually the sun will no longer provide light and the flashlight will die. As they leave the church, they encounter a police horse eating spilled apples on the ground and decide to take it to Chicago. As the sun sets on the children leaving the city, the camera pans to the bar, casting the shadows of Luke, Paul and Rosemary watching the two leave as the darkness falls.

This section needs expansion. Dunkelman argues that the social architecture of America has profoundly changed. Broadly speaking, we used to have three basic rings of relationships or connections: our families inner ring , our neighbors middle ring and our distant acquaintances outer ring. Neighbors were those who knew something of our lives. As a whole, Dunkelman observes, these institutions have all but disappeared. And with them have gone the middle-ring relationships.
They have been replaced by forms of media that allow us to connect directly with those who already share our interests. We simply go online, discover people who fit what we have in mind and communicate with them about the interest or experience that led us to begin the search.

People who share the same disease, who collect the same items, who cheer for the same college team, who support the same politicians and so on all connect with those of like experience and thought. To be sure, a thick network can emerge from such connections, and there is deep good in finding others who have, say, gone through the same chemotherapy. We can also achieve remarkable goals through single-minded focus: issue-based activism has never been as popular as it is now.
And our longing for community goes unfulfilled. In fact, it actually deepens. Even the sickest want to know and be known. He does, however, recognize that without middle-ring relationships, we leave huge holes in communal life and lose the ability to integrate our lives on the basis of interpersonal knowledge and commitment. Moreover, we lose contact with large groups of people who depend on us and who may not have robust families or share our particular interests. When a crisis comes -- as it did in the fall of in Buffalo, New York, where two feet of snow caused extensive shutdown -- the effect of this loss is starkly illuminated.
In Buffalo, the isolation and vulnerability of a vast number of elderly people suddenly became apparent.
They had almost no connection to others. Absent the middle-ring relationships, these people had been largely lost to view. That this is happening yet again in Buffalo is an indication not so much of a lack of will to help as it is once again of the fact that without middle-ring community, we cannot see our neighbors. And yet there is a sense in which the church is still the place where the inner and outer rings come together, where our families and our most distant connections are put together through rubbing shoulders with our neighbors, and where we learn of our more immediate communal needs and opportunities.
One of the major tasks for leaders of Christian institutions over the next many years will be to discover how to build ties that move beyond the immediate family and are much thicker than single-bond ties. But we nonetheless see in them the relentless drive to connect Christians of all stripes with each other.
