X.A.N.A. uses Kiwi to spread a virus which turns people into zombies with a single bite. The zombies are all obsessed with doing our heroes in. The Academy becomes the scene for a real-life horror movie in which the character’s true personalities are revealed. Jeremie and Aelita are stuck inside the cafeteria, as much by the zombies as by William (who takes his role of protecting his fellow pupils a little too seriously). They must escape and get to the factory and deactivate the tower before it’s too late!
Not all of them were able to make it, however; Ulrich and Odd couldn't make it because Ulrich was helping to protect the surviving people and Odd was turned into a zombie. Jeremie, Yumi and Aelita made it to the factory to deactivate the tower. Little did Jeremie know that the zombies had followed them and they were coming up behind him. Soon Kiwi infected Jeremie, but Jeremie was able to reset everything before he became a zombie.
- Chronologically, this episode takes place after Temptation and A Bad Turn, however it was aired weeks before either.
- The original French name for this episode is Contagion.
- When Milly makes the statement "Hey Sissi, what do you think of your father's idea to make a language exchange program with France?" it supports the idea that this show does not take place in France for the English version. This was a change to make sense to a USA/England audience, as there are few clues besides the opening & closing credits to elude to it being a French show when translated.
- In its original French, Milly says "Sisi, Que penses-tu de la décision de ton père d'organiser des échanges languistiques avec l'Angleterre?" , which basically translates to "Sissi, what do you think about your father's decision to organize a language exchange program with England?"
- The episode might be a homage to the 1981 horror film, The Evil Dead, and the Living Dead films, primarly the first film Night of the Living Dead.
- This episode marks the first appearance of the Grut Advertisement.
