    Second pass pick-ups... minutiae? All right, I have my notes from my recent listen through. I missed this thread when it first went up, but I'm here now.

    Sergeant Michael Cross got promoted after getting to Ft. Irwin:
    His wiki lists his rank as SGT/E-5 and way back in Ch. 3 (3/3 @ 21:21) When he meets Burt for the first time, he addresses Michael as "Buck Sergeant." Buck Sergeant is a sometimes derogatory, sometimes term of endearment for E-5's. Much later in Ch. 33, (1/3 @ 24:09) he calls Carl and identifies himself as Staff Sergeant, an E-6.

    When CPL Puck is being a jerk, he isn't that big of a jerk:
    When correcting a newbie he says "Out falcon standing." (CH. 33 1/3 @ 4:25)
    (Bonus points if you know why I highlighted it in blue.)

    Early signs of the Inklings/ADLO's/Numbered Ones:
    In Ch. 10 (1/3 @ 6:24) was that squeaking glass or whining?

    Hey, get a load of this. Guess who started writing again and has a spot in the fan fiction subforum?

    I thought it was "No" but KC replied saying something like "... or maybe it was 'No'..."

    Not that it is really relevant to the story but in the scene when Angel and Saul find Burt and they camp out on the roof of Locked and Loaded, Angel mentions that Burt has a death grip on a revolver. The. A 'smart one' climbs up and attacks Saul, Burt shoots it off, and after the shot you hear a shell casing hit the ground. But if Birt was shooting a revolver instead of a semi-auto there wouldn't be a shell casing ejected. Again not that it really matters but I'm a gun fanatic and it's something that stood out to me as out of place.

    In episode 16-3, right at the start, Angel tells Kalani that he recognised Latch's body because of his ring. He says he remembered because someone asked if they should take it off him. He also knows that his real name is John; he tells Kalani that it's because Pegs told him, but I thought Pegs didn't tell anyone anything about that moment?

    That, to me, sounds like a cover story, and the first hint about The Family. I wonder if there are any others to pick up?

    Just finished re listening to the Purgatory chapter about Datu, Angel and Riley's adventure into the arena.

    When Angel and Riley finally find the room Datu is in the door is locked on the outside, they go into the room next to it and find the hole Datu and Samantha made. And obviously Datu can't get out because it is locked on the inside too. So how do the zombies open the door to pick the next victim for the pit? Do they use a key?

    We hear in Ch 1 when Michael, Angel and Saul lock themselves in the gun vault that they left the key in the door outside but none of the biters noticed or could figure it out.

    Does this point to the evolutution of logic and cognitive abilities in the biters getting stronger? Are the ones in the Arena just some of the 'smart ones' and this part of Ink's close entourage? Or is it just a meaningless oversight in the story and isn't intended to be anything more than a reason to use the hole in the wall they worked so hard to make?

    Interesting thoughts...

    Wasn't there a mention of a heavy bar on the outside of the door?

    It has never occurred to me before, but the name Pegs / Peggy is derived from Magaret whose Marka meaning is "chicken." And Pegs' call sign was "Chicken Little", was it not? Hm.

    I don't recall any mention whatsoever of how the door was kept shut. Might simply be that Datu and Samantha never actually saw them remove anything from the front or heard the click of a key to be able to say and recall...

    or, they might have mentioned a bar, I don't remember.

    I don't remember mention of a bar. I'll have to go back and listen to the part where they bring Datu in, but Angel and Riley don't mention it.

    I know I am probably too anal about all things firearms but does it bother anyone else how they all call their magazines 'clips'? I just re-listened to The War chapter from season 1 and it made me cringe every time, especially when Burt, Michael, Saul or Angel did it, they are trained soldiers (and a firearms dealer)!
