This show just keeps on getting more terrifying and tense each week. Do you think you would excel in a Zombie Apocalypse? Watch this show and then re-evaluate that claim. This is how I always saw them to be and why they terrify me so much. It’s not some glorified, romanticised situation like many people seem to think; it is deadly and every man for himself.
Day five is even more perilous and full of edge-of-your-seat action. There are three days left to survive until rescue but sadly, not all will make it out. First is a mission to retrieve provisions while the newest member of the team returns to the caravan she was hiding in to recover her backpack that she had left in panic the previous day. Next is another water run (very exciting) but with a twist: the water has run dry and the valve needs turning on across the site. This involves a pitch black room, security cameras, walkie talkies and zombies… Finally, after the previous heart-stopping mission comes an added dose of terror and petrifying task for the team, the ENTIRE team. This is the first group mission. They are to go forage for food again like they did previously. However, on the way they are met with a group of newly turned zombies, who are faster and more aggressive than older zombies, and they get trapped in a car.
This week, three survivors were lost which was a hard blow to the team. To survive the apocalypse they need teamwork and trust, but that seems to be going out the window as someone starts to feel betrayed. Thankfully, the same tired old missions are not being given as it seemed to become repetitive with slight changes. The differences are becoming more obvious and hazardous, renewing the interest in the show and bringing the audience back each week to see how our favourite survivors are doing. Many people claim to have stopped watching after their favourites die, Thom Oakley being one of the more popular people for his bubbly personality.
The show is going from strength to strength, but if it gets renewed for future seasons, the setting and missions will have to change or it will quickly die out.
