To be honest, I think the rapid-fire deaths messed up Episode 3's pacing. When I lost Carley I was devastated and sad, and I still thought about her even when it came time for Katjaa and Duck's scene, and so the latter two's deaths didn't have as big of an impact on me as they should have.
But that's just my two cents.
"But I don't want to go among mad people!"
"Oh, you can't help that. Most everyone's mad here."
