The zombies, caused by the new 5G phone connection, are still surrounding our beloved survivors in the Monroe Shopping Village. It’s day three and already, two survivors have been lost. Tensions are rising and emotions are heightened; how will our heroes cope with day three?
The first task was for two survivors to go to the supermarket and get some cleaning supplies. Didn’t we already do this? The look on the faces of the group when they heard the destination was horrifying, as they remembered losing one of their own in that same setting just hours earlier.
One thing that has become obvious in the past two episodes is that the same people are doing the majority of the missions. Certain survivors are staying alive, simply by never leaving the camp. This was getting frustrating and a little boring, so when the army contact the group with orders for those who have not left the building for the past day to go collect water, things were going to start getting interesting – and fair! However, the mission had already been done the previous day. YAWN! Thankfully, knowing this full well, the TV team had a little surprise in store for the well-rested, fresh-air deprived trio out collecting water; a car alarm which needed to be turned off before being able to return to headquarters safely.
This was a rollercoaster of emotions as people grieved, argued, ran for their lives, and sat worrying about their teammates. A clear ranking was coming to the forefront, with some people taking charge and others taking orders. Head butting occurred when the leader was not agreed with, though some left it a little too late to voice their opinions. There were enough tears shed to fill one of their cartons and surely there will be more to come. The close atmosphere and lack of breathing space is already causing problems with the group after so few days. In a real life or death situation, how would this affect a team? Without a safe house which is secure, they wouldn’t be able to scream and shout at each other without getting killed. The team need to band together and put aside their differences, though that wouldn’t make entertaining television, now would it?
After some highly tense scenes that will have you sat on the edge of your seats, the survival count has gone down from eight to seven. However, morale may raise next week as it looks like there may be some more living flesh to join the camaraderie.
Don’t ignore the Zombie Broadcasts throughout the show; it’s good advice if you ever do get caught in a zombie apocalypse! I pray that never happens, but if it does, I’m better prepared!
