I love that so many things that we talked about on We're Not Dead were answered with this part. There were plenty of tantalizing new bits as well.
- It's long and pale (could be just the disease/zombification), but most of the normals have been described as pretty normal looking plus bruises and gashes
- The blood was thick. After being severed, it bled for quite a while. Not fully sure on the normal flow of blood from a severed limb, but I'm thinking it's slower in this instance
- Tattooed #5 - you can read into this all you want. Could be genetic testing, could be many other things though. It could be something that "Ink" or "The one with the markings" has been tattooing to his faithful, could just be a gang tattoo (although, unlikely)
- "Endless fingers" - Not quite sure what this meant, but I'm guessing it means it had more than 5
- Filed? fingernails - are they filed or are they designed that way (genetically)
Hmm, not sure if the math is wrong, but Tardust has some funky math regarding the tankers. There were 6 surviving tankers, and 4 that didn't make it. However, he says they needed 8, and that he had even added 1 more tanker in case of breaking down. That would be 9. Nothing important. Maybe I just am not understanding it the way I should.
Adrian, I'm not sure if Riley views Lizzy as "more" than a friend. It appeared to me in that discussion that she was just upset about her close friend.
Loved the episode. Really great, Music was amazing as usual. Riley really has me irked. I understand shes upset about lizzy, but I think she is going to be a huge liability to the tower at the rate she is going.
Amazing episode. When the Arena went up it was very hard for me to resist the urge to jump up and start cheering.
Riley's reaction to Lizzy is practically Saul levels. I'm starting to wonder if there might be a rivalry developing between Riley and Saul.

Wow Riley way to be a bitch. Claire Dodin said that her sexuality would be revealed, well if she was going to be straight, that roof top would have been a great place for her to have kissed Angel, or revealed that they'd hooked up. Also my hookup theory as to why riley wasnt in her room, and why Angel was so eager to go back to bed, was totally wrong and thats totally lame. I wouldnt say this solidifies that she's a lesbian, but it's yet another nail in her coffin. (not that her being gay is a bad thing, I just wanted her and Angel to hook up ) Oh and if she IS gay, then what is she doing all in love with Lizzy? That’s not cool, she’s with saul. Lesbian or not, there is a code here.
Second, on the point that the Mallers are dumb. This would be a huge mistake and a huge underestimation of their talents. Not all of these guys are rocket scientists, but do NOT underestimate their leadership. Durai is a genius supervillain, oh and to all the haters who said he was dead and scratch was in charge, SUCK IT! (includes you greg miller!) Durai is way too good a character to be killed off behind the scenes. Obviously the Mallers have had a different set of experiences than the tower, and so they’ve developed different weapons and gained different intelligence on the zombies than the tower. For one thing, these guys know for whatever reason that the zombies will hunt you. That they will FOLLOW you and hunt you down. The tower is not aware of this. They’ve also got their hands on a weapon of sorts from a safe. Bet you that its an explosive, maybe an rpg, maybe grenades, who knows.
Oh and Durai heading south. I think this adds in favor of Nik’s theory from one episode ago. The Mallers have heavy duty radio equipment. The colony has heavy duty radios… Perhaps they have been in contact. Its too soon to say that there is an alliance between the two, or if Durai is down there with a scouting party, readying themselves for an assault on the colony. But I’d say the colony definitely has something to do with why Durai is down south.
Also, Lizzy, DUMBASS! If the Mallers are not aware that you have a method of calling the zombies THEN YOU DON’T GO TELLING THEM! Yes you can have them be afraid, but that only works on STUPID people, Durai will take this into consideration when he attacks the tower next, and we lose our trump card.
On the subject of the small ones. They aren’t children and they aren’t chimpanzees. If it was a monkey, then the arm would have been hairy, scratch says that this one had no hair. The fact that it’s nails were filed into claws, and that it was branded with the number 5 is worrisome. I’m getting the uneasy feeling that this thing is a hybrid creature. Scratch specifically says, it doesn’t look human at all. This thing may never have ever been a normal living human being turned by the virus. Makes you wonder about the zombie queen theory. Makes you wonder what Ink’s role in all this really is. Maybe he really is just a general and commander of the zombie attack squad while there is something else. Maybe the virus mutates in response to certain stimuli. If this thing was engineered, how’d they do it? For now, we have NO evidence on this, so no point jumping to theories, its like trying to hit a target at 100 yards while blindfolded.

Also, I know I was totally wrong on WND when I said that when the maller scouts went up to the arena, they would return and say to avoid it.
What an episode.......this was the most confusing and fast paced episode yet.......I am still trying to figure out what happened at the Arena, Tardust is a pussy...big time. All I gather is that their Axle broke, they detonated the bomb, and they are stuck. You couldnt hear an engine running, or them having a collision that would hurt the frame of the truck. I am really lost, someone please tell me what happened with Bricks, Tardust, and Lizzy

Nice episode, now we're focusing on the zombies and I like that a LOT. Now, considering these 'little' ones seem to be quite new, maybe they are created by INK, or by someone higher-up who isn't a zombie? If it is Ink, I believe that when Datu and other humans got taken to the arena, maybe it was 'Experiments' that Ink was performing. Maybe...just maybe... (wild theory in 3...2...1.) Samantha will return as a zombie! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1Y73sPHKxw
K.C. loves his cliffhangers!
Angel doesn't deserve Riley :P
