Zombie Cliche Lookout: Where Is He?
It’s never good when someone turns up missing from your group of survivors in the midst of the zombie apocalypse. Not only is that person likely in danger, dead, or now a zombie, but the group has to stop whatever they were doing and figure out how to deal with the crisis. Do they go back and try to find the person? Wait at the meeting point longer? Start yelling and hope they can find their way to the group? Just abandon them? There’s no good choice here.
Anything you do is going to open you up to problems. Waiting around, shouting, and going back to look for the missing person increases the odds of a zombie attack. Just abandoning them, which is pretty awful in its own right, also weakens your group overall. This is why sticking together is important.
About this Episode:
I still don’t know how Murphy affords a Range Rover on a cop’s salary. Maybe he comes from money, or he managed to get a really good deal on a used model that he was able to fix up. In related news, the Range Rover is my dream car, so I’m projecting a bit here.
In case you missed it yesterday, we’re running a new contest with some pretty sweet prizes. You’d better act fast, it ends on Thanksgiving! Check out the full story here.
Discussion Question: Missing Persons
Imagine that you’re in a medium sized group of survivors, and they are all relative strangers. These are just the people you happened to fall in with when the zombies started doing their thing. As you’re making your way across some territory, one person goes missing. What do you do? Are they worth waiting or going back for? Do you split up the group? Do you just move on and hope they can catch up?
