). If it was a true disaster, most people wouldn't give up hope after only a few days.
To put it bluntly, if I had to make the decision in episode two, I would probably have been more inclined to be thinking about repopulation than in episode one. As it was, I saw Doug being pulled out of a window by several walkers, and Carley was grabbed by the ankle by one Walker. I definitely thought Doug needed more help.
Sorry, this isn't a Hurricane of Earthquake. If friggin' DEAD PEOPLE
started to walk around and EAT THE LIVING
, you're damn right we'd all be thinking long term. Especially if a whole state got wiped out. (Georgia, in terms of size and population, is as large as MOST countries! Let that sink in for a moment.)
