I think everyone over the age of 10 knows what a John is. It's the clientele of Prostitutes.
This has to do with the character Logan, and while he is a divisive character in a harsh environment; I don't understand some reactions on the forum.
It seems most people misconstrue prostitution for rape. I am not condoning his actions or condemning Molly's.
I have said if this scenario had occurred outside of the Zombie apocalypse. Where Molly's sister was substituted for a child, or infact, it could still be her sister in this scenario, and we exchange the insulin for money.
Molly's child/sister is at home and the food in the cupboard is dwindling and Molly chooses to prostitute herself for money to buy food to bring home to said child/younger sister. How is this a demonstrable act on Logan's part or Molly's part.
If the "John" said. I'm sorry my wife and I are reconciling and I can't do this anymore, and the child starves to death, would the prostitute find the man and stab him for not having sex with her any longer and giving her his income? Then smack his dead body around?
I understand Molly's frustration at the situation, but she could not realistically expect Logan to give away the medicine, defy a lunatic who runs the camp and I am 100% sure Molly would have been the one that propositioned him.
Since Logan could care less if Molly's sister lives or dies, the ball is in her court to make an arrangement suitable enough for him to risk parting with the medicine.
It is Molly who has something to gain, so being a resourceful woman she would tap into primal urges and use the oldest profession in the world to gain the necessities for her loved one.
I know in such short episodes it is difficult to flesh out controversial themes; and sometimes I suppose the quickest and dirtiest way to handle this to use a heavy handed approach, using emotional hair triggers to pull reactions from the easily offended and naive is a writing strategy for juvenile texts, but effective in its own way. It allows those with more liberal views to see Logan as some rape craving monster.
