Hey Joe! Nice scene!! The cliff hangers are a pain, but I love this series. Also I wanted to know… since Smith is a vampire and he hasn’t truly been killed…Doesn’t that mean he is going to become a vampire slayer? Also how is production?

not that I disagree but isn’t it kinda cliche to always have the military be the dicks of the universe? shouldn’t he be able to see the tactical advantage to alliance with the monsters? n the stupidity of ordering his men to attack when he knows he can’t win, that’s just selfish as hell, getting his men killed and dooming the entire human race for his own ego, I could accept that from Cross but this guy seemed a lot more level headed

Yeah, I was thinking that Trojian. His soldier-based mind would have him obey his commander.

gotta disagree with you on the dickishness Troji, Jake’s being driven by pattern recognition here

@Trojianmaru Jake’s always doing bad decisions… it was because of him that terry almost got killed ):

Seeing Jake do that I can kinda understand Cross a little, the pressure of protecting the population makes you feel that your way of doing things is better. Not saying it right but it tells a story from the other side of thinking.

@Tio Ba: That’s probably one of the major reasons he’s going to try and kill the monsters now.

I think it’s more-so that Jake has been trained to fight these things. He’s watched mutants come and wipe out whole squads of soldiers, he’s seen plants shoot giant stakes into people, and rip them apart. We’ve even seen the effect of vampires within the walls, as has Jake many times over. Can we really blame him for taking this course of action? It’s what he’s trained for, he’s worried about the people of the colony. One of the few human occupied zones left in the world. Jake doesn’t strike me as a bad guy, or even misguided. He still strikes me as the most able to defend New Hammerstone, even if he is wrong in this instance.

……Jake doesn’t know anything about change for the protection of the colony. I gotta agree with you, though, BloodWolf7.

“Bingo. We may {have had} lost eighty-six colonists to the zombies”

The bit in brackets doesnt sound right to me,maybe just “we may have lost eighty…”

Nice.. The feeling of power has made Cross arrogant. Now he deserves to die.. It’ll be nice if Joe kills his future brother-in-law

Jake bad decision would be very troublesome for all of them. And Jake would be also a betrayer. That will make plants angry, they will lost Sam for a not certain time. Rosa will be holy sh… angry and she could possibly join elder or even make something on her own. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE.
