About this Episode:
Our main characters have been stuck in this building for a long time now, and the whole time I’ve been waiting for someone to ask what’s on the top floor or why they don’t search for food upstairs (it’s a three story building, after all). I can’t believe it never came up.
Zombie Cliché Lookout:
Some groups just work. Through some happy accident, you end up with a collection of people who just gel somehow, with skills and abilities that compliment each other and personalities that don’t clash. These groups can accomplish pretty much anything they set their collective mind too, and they’ll do it faster and more efficiently than you’d think. There’s only one real problem with this type of group: they’re boring. When there’s not infighting, power struggles, and just general bitchiness, there’s no drama. That’s why every group of zombie survivors is going to have an egomaniac, a wet blanket, a scaredy-pants, a jerkass, etc. These characters help to throw off the balance of the group, make the story a bit more entertaining to watch, and – more often than not – introduce plenty of new threats along the way. So the next time you’re working on a group project and someone is being a royal pain, thank them for the people watching at home.
