    Alcohol Binges -- Been there done that

    In order for someone to "reek" of alcohol we are not talking about a couple of drinks. It would be even more than a few. Before the level of Reek, we will have Slurred words, before Slur we have slow down / hesitation. KC is aware of this and one only has to listen to the actors late in R&R to hear the actors try.

    Although I can not smell Riley, I will take Angel's word for it. But, I did not hear any slurred words nor slow down / hesitation. In fact, I do not believe I have ever heard Riley speak that fast before.

    to reek of alcohol you need to have it coming out your pores... i did that once in College... stank for a weekend i drank so much! Not a good feeling when you stop drinking though.

    all the guys and gals I used to DD for, when they were piss drunk, they reeked of alcohol, but it was mixed with sweat. Wearing a ton of beer on you smells differently then it coming out of your pores and mouth. At least to me, it does.

    Now that you mention it, I know I'd spill a bit on myself if I were surreptitiously moving about where there was a chance of a zombie encounter. Let's say you wanted to sneak out and pass on information to a maller (not that Riley would do that), it would be less suspicious for her to smell of alcohol than cheap cologne.

    Did we take into effect that Hope might not know what the smell of alcohal smells like since shes only 14. So she might have not know the difference

    That's a good point, we've already seen that being soaked in alcohol puts zombies off the scent (such as when Saul broke the bottle of whiskey in chapter 5)

    I also think that is interesting that Hope said she wanted to scream, but she couldn't. She had difficulty breathing and began to choke up.

    Similar to Pegs and Victor near ground, but not the same. I've seen similar in response to fear in stories, so that is where I lean. But, I also knw that KC can throw a hell of a curveball. So I am keeping my mind open and waiting
