So the secret is out. Taylor is now outed as having kept things from the townsfolk, just as Ethan and Wes did. Although she has a good point when she asks if they would have believed her anyway. Everyone is pissed at Ethan though and violence breaks out, but luckily Ted shows up. Meanwhile, Wes and his crew are looking for a way out and having serious disagreements.
Wes is seriously getting on my nerves but the reverend at least is making sense. The Picketts, meanwhile, are burying Ma and junior is mumbling some kinda promise. That can't be great. Also, the gender role stuff and interaction between townspeople just keeps happening.
"...steamed vegetable gone, egg roll gone. Fridge almost empty. Howard, talk to them."
"Ying-ma, I can't tell them to stop eating."
"Not "stop eating." Stop eating like pig!"
The scene with the bear is pretty funny... until it isn't. Cole does something very dumb. You just never know in this comic!
Again, this is as much about how people survive (if they do) in a crisis as much as it's about the "girls". Karen tries to talk Ted into getting everyone to to cut back on resources, but he doesn't. No one steps up.
Nancy is a serious pain in the ass. Taylor says Ethan cheated on her- he thought they broke up (she moved out) but she thought they were still together. Even though they didn't speak for six months! These two are a mess!
Wes and crew are stuck at the house they hid from the bear in. And to top it off- Ma is gone!!
