Along the way, they learn that the dubious PADRE side project needs to be canceled.

Fear the Walking Dead, sezona 8, Episode 2 "Bluebird" opens with June showing off a long-range rifle loaded with non-lethal darts. He watches over an abandoned shack in the swamp, posting signs warning parents to turn around or the PADRES will take their children. Judging by what Morgan said to Madison in episode 1, June seems to be one of the few who doesn't adhere to the PADRE system. Perhaps because she has no children of her own or because she has been fighting relentlessly since the death of her husband John Dory. One of the signs was written by someone else, telling Joan that their daughter had been taken from her.

June had apparently eaten something, which was enough to move her hiding place into the night, leaving behind an image of Hannah.

The latter called Padre to tell them where he was and that they were under attack. But Dwight and Sherry need June's help treating Finn's appendicitis, and the clinic is too far to walk.
