It’s sometime in the early 1900s and Mr. and Mrs Bennet are in the parlor of their home very comfortable home. Mr Bennet is occupying his time by cleaning his weapons and Mrs. Bennet is trying to get his attention, rather unsuccessfully. She lets her husband know that Netherfield Park has been “taken over” hoping that will do the trick. She continues talking and tells him that a wealthy young man, Mr Bingly, is in town and of course her only thought is to marry off one of her daughters. Mr Bennet basically tells her that he has no interest in making sure his daughters are married; his only interest is in making sure they can protect themselves from the zombies.
Mrs Bennet inquires to when the next ball will be so as to properly introduce the girls to Mr Bingly. What she doesn’t know is that Mr Bennet has already been to see him. She’s suddenly very proud of her husband!
Once again, Mrs Bennet is going on and on about how being married is the most important thing in her daughters’ lives. Mr Bennet reminds her that surviving the zombies should be the priority.
On a Sunday the girls are practicing in the dojo and they hear horses galloping in the distance. In fact, Jane is able to discern how many are coming and that they are carrying weapons. The girls seem offended that someone would dare to gallop on the Sabbath day. When the men on horseback finally arrive at the Bennet home, they ask the girls to assist them in slaying a group of zombies that have attacked a town while the towns people are in church.
The girls mount the horses with the men and go with them. Once they arrive at the site, Mary cries at the site of the parishioners being killed while in worship. Elizabeth finds this to be shameful of Mary and orders her to slay the remaining zombies alone, as her punishment for weakness. She does so at the bewilderment of the men.
A few days later Mrs Bennet invites Mr Bingly to dinner at her home but he declined – he was going to pick up a group of people that he would be bringing to the ball with him; other wealthy bachelors including Mr Darcy.
We then fast forward to the ball and we find that Elizabeth is quite popular and dances nearly every dance. She has danced with most of the men at the ball but Mr Darcy has purposely avoided dancing with her. He tells Mr Bingly that Elizabeth is “tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt me.”
Elizabeth is deeply insulted and begins to discreetly withdraw her dagger from its ankle holster. As she is thinking that she means to follow him outside and slit his throat the party is suddenly interrupted by shattering glass and zombies come crashing through windows and doors.
The four Bennet girls fight alongside Mr Bennet and kill the zombies. Mr Darcy is thoroughly impressed.
Once home and alone Jane and Elizabeth begin discussing the men they’ve met and while Jane was focusing on the fact that neither darcy or Bingly had fought, Elizabeth is focused on how they were so smitten with Jane.
During a social visit with some neighbors the subject of Mr Darcy’s and Mrs Bingly’s manners is brought up. It is said that while Bingly is a perfect gentleman, Darcy is said to be “abrupt’. The ladies are all discussing which girl the men liked the most. Jane begins to defend Mr Darcy stating that his friends like him well enough, but that he’s just not very good with strangers.
Elizabeth says that she feels that he’s too prideful and that because he insulted her pride, he’s not worthy of forgiveness.
Jane is smitten with Mr Bingly but is trying to hide the fact. Others are letting her know that she’s not hiding it as well as she thinks she is. Charlotte, a neighboring friend, is telling Elizabeth that she needs to tell Jane to encourage Mr Bingly or “nothing will come of this.”
Later, The Bennet girls, several friend and Mr Darcy are all gathered at the home of the Lucas’. They are singing, playing the piano and dancing. Elizabeth talks to Mr Darcy and is encouraging him to throw a ball so that the ladies can once again get to know the men a little better. He is amused at her way of teasingly threatening to kill him for insulting her at the last ball.
