    The Family

    Does anyone really believe that Scratch is really dead? And if she is, then why didn't Jeremy try killing Burt? Or Pegs? Or even Hope? Or did that detail never get around to Jeremy? If she was saved by Jeremy, what has she been waiting for?
    If it does get around to Jeremy, will he bring the wrath of the family down on them? By the sounds of the last episode is Story of Survival, that may be one of the groups the colony is having problems with.

    Two things... Did Burt "kill" Scratch? Or was that just "time"?

    Also, a vendetta doesn't always apply to everyone. There are 3 different families, and they don't always get along.

    As a mystic teacher once said, " ...from a certain point of view."
    Did Burt "kill" Scratch. By leaving her the way he did that could be considered a long way to kill someone. If she never got out, which I love how you dance around that one, then yeah time ultimately would have killed her.

    I don't know enough about these three families to make any intelligent points. What worries me is that there are still enough of them alive and in the background. After all this what would be their ultimate goal anyway?

    Very good question.

    Wow, this actually brings up an interesting quandary. If this were the case, then this could lead to an uncontrollable web of revenge killings. It would really make for great story telling but maybe the execution of it could get messy and tangled. The mafia and other crime syndicates implemented codes of conducts among themselves to prevent endless fighting interfering with their operations.

    Could it be that revenge killings are only sanctioned by members of different Families but not required? That is, if someone from the Illuminati Family is killed then the Bush Family and the Kennedy Family are not required to carry out the revenge killing but only required to support the Illuminati's right to vengeance?

    Maybe this is why Durai was willing to look the other way with Pegs, because Latch wasn't part of his Family, but Angel Tenudo Sr. was. (Then again, maybe Durai was more interested in creating a new world. People seem to get like that during the Apocalypse.)

    Asked another way, did he take her life or did he prevent her being able to continue living? Is there a difference?

    Questions like this is why I majored in Philosophy.

    He definitely took away her ability to continue living above ground. He effective gave her a death sentence. And by doing so he took her life.

    I can see the Families becoming a new leadership and rebuilding the post-apocalyptic world the way that they want it. Would they actually declare themselves and formally make a new government? Or, would they infiltrate different colonies and consolidate power behind the scenes in different regions.

    I agree that perhaps Scratch's death would not spark a vendetta war even if Jeremy knew who was responsible. She was not in good standing even in her own family. And she had killed Durai.

    Good points. Since Bogart and Jodi are on such good terms with Jeremy, what does that mean for them in Family terms? Would they be granted a rank or some other boon?
