View Full Version : Pegs Breaks Maskirovka?
Jun 17th, 2011, 08:04 AM
Maskirovka is russian for camoflauge. It is often used in Military Inteligence and Spy circles for deception. <br />
Ok, So, I started another listen through. This time I was wondering if I could link...

Interesting questions. I would say the biggest counterpoint is how quickly after the outbreak that Pegs and Riley joined with Michael and co. As I recall, the colony grew out of a gathering site for helicopter rescue. Because Pegs was rescued from her shop so quickly after the outbreak, she wouldn't have had time to learn about the colony. I took her comment to reflect surprise more than foreknowledge.
As for Marcus, there certainly is a possibility. The two issues I see are that (1) she only heard a first name, which is common enough to not jump to the conclusion that it's the 'Marcus' she would know and (2) that if they had a significant prior acquaintance, it seems strange that Marcus wouldn't have forced a meeting. An apocalypse is a significant enough event to quickly overlook previous bad feelings.

But she wouldnt respond by Marcus is in charge? It should be something more like who's Marcus

Are you suggesting that Pegs is the rat and/or killer? I'm not really following what this is about. But if it is incriminating Pegs, I have to strongly disagree. It's just not her personality to do something like that. And I love her, she wouldn't hurt me like that.

My current assumption is that Pegs at a minimum has been ease dropping on conversations of other factions. For example. The mallers use police radios and Pegs has a police scanner

When they were at the colony, did Marcus ever actually meet Pegs? I shall have to re-listen. I am intrigued.

Even if pegs did have a police scanner and was ease dropping, the feeling I got was Marcus had been running the colony for quite. While ...therefore she wouldn't have reacted the way she did...i like where your going with this one though...did seem a bit strange when she said it....

Like I said, I am still trying to pull this together. Maybe a maller spy in the colony talks about Marcus. May be Marcus is the spy. Marcus and in charge are mutually exclusive. It is possible to...

I like to think Pegs and Marcus know each other, and that someone new from Tower 2 will appear and link them!

Don't get me wrong, like what your doing...im just having trouble linking all the pieces together...theres literally dozens of small easter eggs within the story that nobody has touched...hell, since I think your like me and in the middle of a re-listen....why does burt speak Philipino? (Chapter 13 part 2 ,1:30 mark) ....tons of small things to puzzle over....

There sure is. My impression is Bill is just guessing. Datu surely is not saying Burt I love you like a brother how can I help?

Hahaha...yea! But those are the kinds if things that can lead you down a rabbit hole...and
Pegs mission: establish relations with a group of survivors, assess their situation,likeliness of survival..report back..
Gatekeeper mission: establish himself in a position of power,gain power through promises of power. Assess survival rate...report
Once it became clear that the tower was not a viable option, and that gatekeeper had gained considerable ground down south, the mallers pack up and leave....coincidence ? I think I'm starting to get what your getting at.

I do not necessarily believe that "the Rat" in the tower was on a mission. I lean towards the connection with the mallers comes after the outbreak. I am also biased towards the non-malicious rat. ...

Poor choice of words...(mission) on my part..i think we are getting at the same thing...durai is a smooth talker and pegs said funny stuff..and why did she say things the way she did...
