    I have used the term medic loosely, not being from the USA, it is used elsewhere in combat to denoted a soldier trained in advanced first aid such as ATLS or equivalent. He will thus be of a lot more help at the birth than anyone else.

    I know lol I wasn't trying to be rude hope I didn't come off that way. I def think he will be a big help once he's done with the behemoth

CLS is essentially advanced first aid... they are trained to give an IV, use a tracheal tube, manage Tension pneumothorax and a few other things... No, he isn't a combat medic so far as I can remember... but he does have a bit more training than most soldiers used to.
    Awesome thanks for the clarification. It is much appreciated I don't catch everything

    He is CLS trained, and has a decent amount of experience in the field, better than most. He's not specifically a medic, though.

I don't think she has the necessary equipment at Dunbar or Colony. As a vet Tanya will have the operative skills and Saul being an army medic can help, that's why Tanya told him to get his head out of his butt! Tanya is making some very difficult decisions for her future daughter in-law and grandson.
    We'll done to Kc, this happens in hospitals every day. Has he got a medical advisor for WA?
    Can't wait for next episode!
    I research everything, but yes, I do have many medical advisers on this stuff. Can't comment on the rest of what you wrote, but there's a chance some of that's right

    Ha!!! Good one.
    This sort of brings up what Samantha said to Kalani when they were at the Swinging Tower of Dunbar, "people are hooking up around here like it's the end of the world or something." I wonder if condoms would be on the scavenger supply lists.

    Uh-oh. I think Saul took the wrong radio - one that isn't encrypted. He said he was grabbing one with a bigger antenna, and he did it in a hurry. I suppose the channel it was set to might be still be encrypted, but what about the other channel Kelly switched to - and broadcast their position on? Are *all* channels encrypted?

    I think *someone* is listening.
    Nice catch I have the unshakable feeling from the tone and setting of Kelly's calls that Scratch is listening.

    In my military experience as a radioman (so this may or may not be applicable) When a radio is filled with crypto and trying to communicate with another radio that has a newer or different key the users hear nothing in response. Depending on the frequency band and the equipment you will often not even hear the other station/radio keying their transmission. (unless you use an Oscilloscope to watch your antenna pickup the amplitude of a transmission.)

    So when Kelly calls out on the radio with the wrong key and not hearing any response this is completely plausible. If the radio did not have a key filled at all she would be heard in the plain by any radio on the channel with or without crypto.

    So a lot of 'if's' here but...
    If the radio is on the previous key
    If Scratch's radio has that key
    If KC's weather isn't the issue
    If none of our good guys are using the old key

    No one except Scratch and Tardust can hear that Kelly, Saul, Tanya, and Lizzy are at Cain Hospital.

    Again this is only based on my experience with specifically VHF/UHF voice gear in the military which I'm assuming works similarly.

    what time does the episode come out? I was listening and catching up the past few weeks and then WHAM!! Caught up -- I can hardly wait to see what happens. I kind of hope that Saul and Tanya are immune and they give Datu some of their blood and he gets immune as well.

    Well ... It's up!
    Zombie Story:
    - raises the acceptance of killing humans in huge numbers,
    - reveals everything bad and and even worse about human behaviour and psychology,
    - is fun.
