    Another amazing episode! It's hard to imagine the United States reduced to one city of 150,000 and one military base in the Mojave Desert!

    I'm amazed that Pegs was given the choice to leave. I would have thought COL Kimmet would have drafted a competent helicopter pilot on the spot, civilian or not.

    Is anyone else holding out hope that one or more of the Tower survivors has a change of heart and gets off the plane before it takes off? I'm hoping the three (four?) figures in the distance in the Chapter artwork are our people coming back.

    I was hoping for that too. Maybe Pegs would change her mind and start fighting to be let off. But the plane already took off and was in the air before Michael and Riley turned to leave so not much hope for that.

    Just got through the episode for the first time. I was frustrated that Michael was allowed to leave the briefing. He had till the next morning to talk with his people why the hell would a Colonel allow him to leave in the middle of the briefing. I know that this is a fictional story but I would think that the Kimmet would want his new asset up to speed and working ASAP and that he would have little compassion about Micheal's musings for the civilians he came with.

    The Coast Guard was the first to get their poop together was another hint I got out of this. I have often wondered about the naval situation. Ships at sea wouldn't be affected right off the bat so I was wondering if there are strong seaborne forces to augment what is left of the ragtag bunch on land. I would think submarines would have been the safest place at the time of "the event." The big missile subs would have quite a large nuclear capability too.

    I saw the movie "Immortals." On my deathbed I know I will rue wasting that time.

    I think the group will be staying for a little longer. Tanya was/is infected, no way they would let people near her go to the last known bastion of humanity without more medical inspection and evaluation. They know they have slow turners/carriers on their hands, they aren't going anywhere.

    I agree that the status of Navy ships that were at sea at the time of the outbreak is a huge question. And crews in ICBM silos and underground command centers, etc. I suspect that the fact that they weren't mentioned in COL Kimmet's briefing means that they either didn't make it or they are not in contact with Fort Irwin.

    Thank you Kc for putting the Coast Guard in a good light. It always seems like we're the subject of the jokes and are always the ones to either cause more bad than good or are just a joke compared to other branches. I was literally cheering in my truck on my way home from base today because my branch got props from Kimmet.

    Although Boulder and Ft. Irwin sound to be the last refuge of human life on the continental United States, keep in mind Col. Kimmet did state that they haven't had any other contact. He might not know about the Colony but it exists, which would make it reasonable to assume that other such pockets of civilization exist. There might be some Fort out in Florida, Texas, and/or somewhere on the East coast doing well, just in a situation where they can't contact each other.

    That's why they need to get some douche bag like Kevin Costner to run snail mail across the country!

    On thinking of other pockets of civilization, isn't there like this Mountain where all the high profile members of the executive branch and stuff supposed to go in the event of a hell-on-earth emergency? Or am I just thinking of Terminator 3 too much? Seriously though, isn't there some Mountain bunker currently in use where they store the countries secrets on mainframes and shit miles below rock?
