Seth Briars, when asked about the undead plague

Get Back in That Hole, Partner is a mission featured in the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC pack.


Marston approaches the Old Bacchus Place to find Seth Briars 'playing' poker with his friend, the newly Undead Moses Forth. John declines the invitation to join the card game and begins questioning Seth about an explanation for the Undead Plague. Seth seems disinterested in the conversation and makes light of the situation, saying: "It ain't nothin'."

When Marston mentions that the folk in Blackwater are blaming it on the glass eye he found, Seth becomes agitated and begins to damn the townsfolk for their opinion. Seth even decides that Marston has become a threat, proceeding to unsuccessfully coax the Undead Moses into attacking John.

When Marston continues to press him for an explanation, Seth suggests he travel to the three local cemeteries and burn the plague out at its source. Without much of an alternative, Marston sets off to the graveyards.
