As its thought that the chat ate the first wall I will again start off this post.
No matter what you died with honor. You will be missed.

When I first brought up the idea that Lewis was left locked in his room when the Tower collapsed, I meant it jokingly. But as I repeat the idea on various threads, I increasingly find myself wanting to eulogize him.
Lewis wasn’t anyone special. He wasn’t one of our major characters. He was, quite literally, a voiceless Tower resident who ended up the victim of a cruel, cruel, world. Lewis never got to tell his story of survival. We never got to know his thought and feelings on the madness surrounding him. We never learned about his hopes and fears. All we know is that he was a nerdy gamer who did his part to help the Tower function. He was set up as a patsy to lure out Pippin’s killer because he was filling the generator when the murder occurred and thus lacked an alibi. He apparently willingly accepted his role as a patsy in hopes of finding the killer. What that tells me is he was a guy willing to do his part to help the Tower even if that meant letting everyone think he was a killer and possibly a traitor. That dedication was left unrecognized though. Instead he was left, forgotten, in his “cell” when the “world” came crumbling down around him. So I say that we should honor Lewis by remembering him, and by extension all the nameless and voiceless Tower residents who died in the battle. They did their part to keep the Tower running when it stood, and that dedication should be remembered and honored.

Angel was one of the major characters and it is sad to hear that Angel died from the fall when he was on the top of tower when it started to colapse.

RIP Angel. :(
Scratch shows her true nature more and more. I hope KC makes that b***h pay for it someday!

Wow...I agree with all here. I never even considered Lewis myself, but HardKor, you have honored him well.
I find it the hardest to say goodbye to rich characters, like Kalani and Angel. When I first began to listen, Angel didn't really make an impression on me, but over time his character grew on me...particularly when he and Riley risk it all to save first Datu and then Kalani from the arena.
Kalani, his character automatically struck me as interesting. Once he told his story (pre-reveal) my interest in him deepened. There were a few things that I noticed about his character that struck me...and I ended up liking his character as well. I cried when he blew himself up...heartsick because not only did he think that his daughter was dead, but that she was dead even though he did a terrible thing by tipping off the Mallers and causing the deaths of innocent people, and it was all for nothing in the end. His reason for living was gone.
I think what he was really saying "I'm sorry" about right before he crashes was that he was sorry that he betrayed them to the Mallers...I truly believe that's what he was really aplogizing to Angel for, not just the flat tire.
I also believe that the title "We're Alive" carries a much deeper meaning than just the obvious. Even the dead and gone are still carried in the hearts and minds of the characters who are still alive, but the fact that they lived and told even just a part of their stories creates an impact on us the listeners, and the rest of the cast who survives them.
It also breaks my heart to think that no one will play "Taps" for Angel...
Oh, now I'm weepy again...

A candle in the window for Angel and Ra1th.
