They are now stuck on this land with a bunch of random strangers, all of which are trying to find out what is going on.
They wonder how they will ever make it back home. And they questioning where they currently are. The daughter and her father ultimately end up surviving the disaster, though they aren’t in the sinkhole with the mom and brother. The daughter barely survived and the father seems as if he will be absolutely no help when trying to solve the mystery of what happened. This is because he frequently has hallucinations and also has a pretty bad past. In La Brea, they try to reunite their family, and they end up discovering the father’s hallucinations might help them.
