They finally reach the base. So was the growl and gunshot in the last second of the podcast one lone Zed/mutant, or were what they saw in uniform all Zeds/mutants who were smart enough not to move like those in the town the helicopter flew over enroute to the base?
And Reilly just went drinking in the middle of a cornfield? And the zeds just turn up when Michael and Kelly go looking for her? Big loud helicopter lands there the day before, but the Zeds only surface when the guys are making noise looking for Reilly? It could be said that the zeds were trying to follow the chopper, but if the zeds were so far away that it took them hours and hours to arrive, then surely they would not have been able to find the area the chopper was in oince the noise stopped. Unless, and this just came to me as I was typing, Datu was sweating whilst working to fix the chopper and maybe Reilly was as well thanks to her drinking, and we know the Zeds are attracted to sweat.
Stlll nothing on Burt or Angel
