The Stand Episode 7 Recap

‘The Stand’ episode 7 is aptly titled ‘The Walk’. From her deathbed, Mother Abigail tasks Glen, Stu, Ray, and Larry to walk to Vegas and confront Randall Flagg with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. She also predicts that one of the four will not make it to Vegas, but she cannot see who that person is. The four, displaying incredible faith in Mother Abigail yet again, leave Boulder for Vegas for a final showdown with the Dark Man. On the way, Stu falls into a crevasse and breaks his leg. He asks the other three to walk on to Vegas without him, making Mother Abigail’s prediction come true.

A bit of clever maneuvering by Nadine leads Harold to fall off a cliff and impale himself on a tree. Nadine tells him that Flagg would have killed him anyway, and so he should end his own life. Harold writes a note before shooting himself dead. Nadine, meanwhile, reaches Vegas and has sex with Flagg. But she is able to glimpse Flagg’s real nature and is spooked. Immediately afterward, Nadine is shown to be nine-months pregnant with Flagg’s demon spawn. The unhinged Trashcan Man goes searching for a nuclear weapon at Flagg’s behest.
