    this is very, very interesting!

    if i'm getting this episode right, it was arkady's idea to start whatever freakangels did to end the world?

    i assume she's older than 15 here, so it means there was a period of her life after the overdose experience when she was all right, only to become all fuc*ed up after the apocalypse? maybe she's like that because of the guilt?

    definitely one of the most interesting characters.

    can't wait to meet other freakangels - i have a feeling warren might introduce one of them soon.

    (my english is bad 'cause i'm not a native speaker)

    Tired and wanting to sleep.

    Great work on this page guys. I like Arkardy without the hair as well, I had to go back and forth before I realized it was Arkardy, not sure if that's my brain telling me it's melted or if I am just slow, but regardless, better bald.

    @dopamine--No worries, mate.

    I admittedly didn't pick up that the story had now gone into a flashback. My brain had broken down despite the small visual hint that the weather was different.

    As for my week, it was pretty much a mix of drama and mundane occurrences. The early part of the week was making sure a presidential debate watch party came off without spectacularly blowing up in my face. Time for a small writing project was pretty much either non-existent or like carving wood with just broken fingernails.

    The big headache was discovering that the fuckwads trying to reinstate the banning of LGBTs from marrying had surged ahead in voter support. The newest ad did an effective job of scaring voters with the lie that accepting marriage equality meant teaching elementary school kids to become homosexuals. My mood wasn't helped by seeing the counter-ad, which merely said the other side was lying. Also hearing that the homophobes had a lot more money and an army of Mormon phonebankers ready to make the big push did little to better my mood. I wonder if Martin Luther King or Harvey Milk ever had to deal with this sort of shitstorm.

    Also, I hope this flashback goes long enough for us to finally meet the fabled Mark, and maybe to see FAT CONNOR :D
    I'll bet KK is all prim and proper, too ;)

    Artemis - "I'm kinda curious what's up with the military-style uniforms."

    I thought that at first, but I don't think they're wearing uniforms, just that the flashback coloring makes it all look kind of olive drab. Arkady is wearing a biker style leather jacket, Caz looks to be wearing a peacoat. They're just wearing regular clothes, I think.

    I feel a little foolish for asking, but there's twelve of them, right? Has there ever been a proper headcount yet?

    A beautiful episode, yet again. That movie-like transition into Arkady's rememberance is awesome.
    And I'll second diello's wish about this flashback.

    @dopamine : Don't worry about our non-native english, friend. I'd be surprised if people here at whitechapel looked down on us particularly for that reason.

    interesting that the boys seem to have traditional names and the ladies all seem to have more exotic ones or nicknames.

    And everyone but Connor has a K in their name, and even then his C is pronounced the same.

    Woah. You misspelled Caz! But you wrote her!

    @redex
    Caz has a C in her name too, plus her full name is Carolyn.

    I'd just woken up


    Caz, yes

    id have to venture a guess that whatever they do, its more like an EMP than an actual nuclear blast. notice- the city looks broken, twisted, and dilapidated, but not destroyed. without circuitry, without electricity, a lot of things probably just stopped working. of course, that probably means that somewhere out in the countryside one is likely to find great big gaping holes in the terrain. also, you'd have to end everything, all at once, to get this kind of situation. only an emp could do that without irradiating the surface of the globe.

    that's my guess, anyhow.

    didn't they raise the water levels or was that judt one small part ?

    This was a really good episode, I think one of the best so far - the tension is totally different in the flashback scene, and the change in lighting and colour pallette bring this out - grey and gritty (like London is now...) as opposed to the almost surreal, beautiful, soft light in the post-apocalypse time.

    I reckon they did something with the orbit of the earth.
