For instance, I find it very unlikely that the whole world would fall to these slow moving zombies. Obviously she loves and wants to protect her daughter but that was such a bad idea. Alicia continues to be boring to me. I mean she kind of did. I agree with you though. The show clearly wants to portray Madison as badass and incredibly powerful but I keep thinking her actions are so selfish and stupid that she'd alienate everyone else in a moment.
But why sweet Ofelia why? This thread is for serious discussion of the episode that just aired. In the meantime Ofelia was dropped at the ranch real injured. Yeah he respects strength I suppose but she also killed a bunch of his people for absolutely no reason. Going back to the last episode, Alicia went after Jake in his suicidal mission. This is a rather large subreddit for a rather large media inkwell, there should be plenty of content without having to repost things from two weeks ago. We ended up finding out she pulled the Judas card and poisoned the militia, one by one they start to fall and everything went to chaos. So it could be a virus, bacterial infection, fungal, radiation, wrath of god.
You've already gotten past 1 and 2 so you don't need to catch up. She has a heated conversation with Walker about Travis death and how they are responsible for that. Afaik, there are no officials details on what caused the infection. I don't want to read a religious story. It hijacks the host virus's replication mechanisms, but the host virus's replication is dependent on living cells. Don't forget to check out and their episode discussion. And also strand on the radio having a dark moment with space dude.
Jenner stared at zombie tissue under electron microscopes and every other instrument known to science and could still not identify a pathogen. A scientific explanation wouldn't make much sense. Comic spoiler tags are always mandatory on. So I'm gonna say it's voodoo or some shit. Also before, the portrayal of Jeremiah was mixed and interesting.
And if it is a pathogen it specifically cannot be a virus, since a virus requires living cells to reproduce and function. The people at the camp know the tribe better than she does. Telling Ofelia that brown people aren't welcome to get the audience to dislike the character just before they kill him is fairly cheap I think. Honestly I regarded that with a bit of irritation at the writing there. So Jake and Walker came back with a deal.
Given how models of mega pandemics predict that with modern transportation by air, sea and land the entire world could be infected within days, it's likely that the space mission began months before all hell broke loose. The show then proceeded to one by one kill off the three most interesting characters and one entire half of that family, removing that potentially interesting dynamic completely. She explained to the Ottos and the Clarks that Taka Walker discovered that she was plotting against them because she knew Madison and his family, so he casted her out. You go girl, tell them!! He was 3 days away from re-entry so he was well away from Earth before the infections started. Anyway they got Alicia back, but they broke the last hope of truce in the process.
Why is everyone suddenly infected all over the world? If they say you can trust their word then she should have listened. I just think the writing is not that great. The anthrax scene was one of my favorites and a bit unexpected until the first upset. That could have made an interesting dynamic. Cosmonaut Vashchenko is likely the only living human being without the strain. She also doesn't seem to be able to trust her kids to make good choices.
Troy just has to accept. I guess it's hard to answer. It might almost be counterproductive to include. How could you do that to him? Oh yeah I just was confusing them. She was reckless to me. Really good story telling and some good acting as well. It just needs to be a conclusive answer to a major plot point to this series.
Readers would want more and more detail. Really, the entire military fell? If that cosmonaut went up before the first round of reanimations, is he infected or not? I was afraid that it would go downhill when Travis was killed, but it seems to have gotten much better. Kinda reminded me of in how horrifying the situation would be. Bad choice Jake, Madison wont be happy about it Like mother like daughter Alicia shows more backbone and sassiness every episode. It would raise too many questions, and distract from the stories way too much. . Ultimately Jake goes with Ofelia back at the ranch and Alicia stays as a hostage.
That's all i want it's simply a incentive to keep suspending my disbelief that a scenario like this could possible happen some way some how. Feel free to message us moderators if you have suggestions or concerns about these. Or the fact that Walker didn't kill her. I think that the three main characters which remain are all very flat. He and his family took in since the beginning! I think the producers have decided she is the badass and lead and we should all feel in awe of her even though the writing doesn't actually do this and instead kinda fails so she has writing immunity I'd assume. Shot of the show has to be when Strand puts on the sunglasses and you see the flames. Alicia especially, and we dont know how much that story changed her mind on her mothers actions yet, either.
