    Cain's General Hospital. What's in a name?

    70dd taught me this.

    Cain's General Hospital

    Genesis 4:8
    King James Bible
    And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

    General. The dude in charge, most often used in a military context.

    The word hospital comes from the Latin hospes, signifying
    The word "hospital" comes from the Latin "hospes" which refers to either a stranger or foreigner or the host who receives them. From "hospes" came the Latin "hospitalia", an apartment for strangers or guests.

    Not sure why no one seems interested in this.

    Cain slew Abel (Abel / Angel?)
    Even if it is not the death of Angel, The zombies and the humans are clearly practicing Fratracide

    The shape of the hospital is what? Cross
    What is Michael's last name? Cross

    What did Burt say the zombie's were moving like? An Army.
    What is the commander of an army? General

    Hospital fro me the same Latin root as hostel (rooms to stay in) or the host that receives the strangers. The one in the pinstripe suit kinda fits the bill as a host

    Awww...arthur gets a hat too??..its ok...hes really trying here..

    I can certainly see the symbolism in the title, the thing I question more so is...we have the name Cain, and we also have images of healers from history..so what I'm seeing is a play on creation and destruction...what can we take from that?

    And sometimes it's a big... well never mind.

    I think there is some nonimportant symbolism in the name Cain. Now a General Hospital is just a hospital that isn't specialized (like most cities having a "Childrens Hospital" or a hospital that deals with cancer and whatnot)

    All in all I think it was a cool "Hey check this out" thing that KC threw in.

    Cain General Hospital -
    Cain- Brother killing Brother
    General- Common
    Hospital- Very bad place to go in WA

    I think one of the group will have to kill another before they turn, The others will have to run up to the helicopter and GTHOofD. It was clearly a bad choice on them for going to a hospital and maybe that will become a common thing?
    Just my thoughts, probably wrong but Kc does do some strange things.

    Could be Herman Cain.....turning us all into zombies with Godfathers Pizza!

    (sorry, kidding)

    Cain's always a menacing name since he's the first murderer (2nd degree murder, BTW) Didn't figure out till the 2nd listening that those were tattoo needles- immediately thought of the 'mark of Cain' so I think you're onto something.
