The Stand Episode 3: What to Expect?

‘The Stand’, based on Stephen King’s 1978 novel of the same name, revolves around the lives of Larry Underwood and Lloyd Henreid, who reside in a mystical and apocalyptic world, which has been destroyed by a virus known as ‘Captain Trips’. The premiere episode leaves us wondering about many things — especially about the similar visions experienced by three different people. All of the visions throw the limelight on Mother Abagail. We also learn of Larry’s romance with Rita Blakemoor and Lloyd’s history where he had spent time behind bars.

Larry then meets up with his mom who dies after contracting the virus. This is when he meets a middle-aged Manhattan socialite and develops a friendship, which soon progresses to romance. Rita, on the other hand, is addicted to pills. She pops quite a few, one day, and dies from an overdose. Currently, Larry acts as the leader of transporting a convoy of cars to Boulder, Colorado, which also includes a character named Nadine Cross, a teacher and an orphan who is autistic.

On the other hand, a criminal named Lloyd is jailed when his attempt at a robbery backfires. He soon realizes that the virus is spreading into the penitentiary, with guards and prisoners becoming sick. When Lloyd is the only inmate left alive, he is rescued by Flagg, who asks him to be his main man. Well, after a twisted, racy premiere, followed by an equally engaging second episode, let us now cover the details of ‘The Stand’ episode 3.
