So, this is a tradition I started withÂ Buffy over on Mark Watches (in terms of hosting a Q&A after I finish a series), and I’d like to keep it going here, too! PLUS, PREDICTIONS.Â PREDICTIONS. Let’s have some fun this Friday, y’all.
Before we get to the Q&A (which I thought started at 10am PDT, because apparently I don’t know my own schedule), I want to go over my predictions forÂ Blackout!
- Georgia has to be a clone. Like, I canâ€™t believe she survived a gunshot to the back of her head.Â BINGO. 1/1
- Shaun has a previously-undiscovered reservoir condition.Â I tried. 1/2
- Bonus points if that condition is responsible for his hallucinations of Georgia.Â No, this was a bad theory. 1/3
- Alaric dies. I hate saying that, but out of the surviving members of After the End Times, I think that heâ€™ll die.Â OH GOD, HE DIDN’T. YAY! BUT THENÂ SAD.Â 1/4
- We will see appearances by the Rymans AND Rick.Â HAHAHA HELP. 2/5
- Dr. Abbey dies.Â I wasn’t very good at this, was I? 2/6
- I almost wanted to predict thatÂ everyoneÂ was going to die, but I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s the case. SOME PEOPLE WILL MAKE IT TO THE END, namely Georgia, Shaun, Becks, Mahir, and Maggie.Â THIS IS FUCKING CRUEL. Oh, Becks. 🙁 2/7
- We will discover the group of people behind the long-unanswered terrorist conspiracy. I donâ€™t think ONE person is behind this. Itâ€™s a large group.Â Yep. I love that it’s still ambiguous, that there’s not a single person or villainous figure either. 3/8
- We will find out how the Second Rising started.Â AND IT’S SO EVIL. 4/9
- Zombie mosquitoes. Look, ITâ€™S NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY.Â yeah IT KIND OF IS. what were you thinking. 4/10
- At some point, After the End Times will reveal how the CDC has been complicit in a global experiment.Â THEY DID THE THING. 5/11
- Shit will get real.Â THIS WAS TOO EASY. But it’s true! 6/12
- Georgia will reunite with her brother and co-workers/friends. PLEASE.Â PLEASE.Â OH GOD, AND EVERYTHING WAS AWKWARD AND BEAUTIFUL. 7/13
- The Masons will die.Â Thankfully they did not, since they had Alaric’s sister with them. 7/14
- And weâ€™ll find out who replaced Lois. I JUST WANT TO KNOW, OKAY. Donâ€™t judge me!Â WHATÂ 7/15
So… that’s a failing grade, right? It is indeed. THERE WAS AN ATTEMPT.
Anyway, Q&A time! While I’d like to keep our discussionsÂ Newsflesh-themed, you’re welcome to ask me anything! I will be on the site, refreshing the comments all day. I actuallyÂ don’t have a ton of work to do today, so that’s why it’s party time. Ask away, friends!
