Remember when zombies invaded the Turner Joy a few months backTonight, we’ll finally get to see the episode of “Z Nation” featuring the vessel and Bremerton as its backdrop.

The show, in its second season, will air its finale tonight at 10 p.m. on the SyFy Channel. The Horse & Cow Bar and Grill, 536 Fourth Street, will host a viewing party tonight as it airs for the first time.

I’ve been working my way through all the episodes, and can tell you that this bloody and campy zombie apocalypse romp is quite entertaining. The show is based around a character named Murphy, played by actor Keith Allan. He’s the first known half-man, half-zombie, and his colleagues will stop at nothing to get him to a lab to see if he can help find a cure for the zombie virus.

The show was filmed entirely in Spokane, until they came west on a suggestion from a Bremerton City Council member. With season 2’s ending revolving around sets used in Bremerton, who knows — maybe they’ll need a similar set up to start season 3. I’ll keep you posted.
