    Good point. The syringes could have easily been something like Potassium Chloride or anything else easy to overdose on. And just because Tanya had those syringes around doesn't mean she had them there right from the start. She may well have realized the necessity of putting someone down quickly and relatively painlessly and knew what kinds of meds worked for that so she had some mixed up. I'm guessing she mixed them up when she first saw the slow turner because she knew there was a good chance he was going to need to be put down and those syringes are a lot more humane, and less messy, than a bullet.

    It's likely that the syringes contain Pentobarbital, since it can be used as a sedative and an anesthetic in normal does, but causes deep unconsciousness and caridaic arrest in higher doses.

    Reading through this thread I wonder if Tanya had been an MD vs a veterinarian, would she have made up the suicide syringes or not. As a vet, she will have had euthanization as a regular part of her practice and training/philosophy about when to use it. Most MD's don't/wouldn't, I think.

    And since Saul worked with her at times, I'm sure he had the same understanding/philosophy about it. In other words, if there had been a different doctor at the colony or someone other than Saul digging in there, we wouldn't have had the syringe that kept Mucho Macho Victor from becoming the baddest ass Zed around.... (great f'n scene!)

    Since Little One Arm got stitched by the minigun right after that, we have no idea how the drugs affect the Zeds. Just that a needle to the eye distracts them pretty well.

    Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.
