Chloe is dead
No, really, actually dead. Yes, I expected her to miraculously recover as well
So I’m going to begin with a lament to Chloe – a character who deserved so much better. A secret agent with all the skills and knowledge that implied, who was reduced to a love interest. A leader whose leadership was co-opted. A decision maker who never ever made a good choice. A strategist whose decision making was beyond appalling
My gods this character deserved better. She had so much potential and realised none of it. And now she’s dead because she has absolutely no purpose except for angst for poor poor Jackson.
So introducing a new character – Allison, super-rich deputy Secretary of Defence who owns an orchard which is dying and adding agricultural collapse and starvation to the panic the end of the world is happening. Remember, most people are not eating meat now – so losing orchards full of fruit is terribad awful. She’s the one who donated the plane, because she has awesome planes she just has lying around. Oh she’s also Mitch’s step-mother who (you will be shocked to hear!) Mitch has issues with. He spends all his time snarling and sniping at her. He spends all his time snarling and sniping at everyone. Everyone. It’s beyond tiresome now. Someone needs to slap him. Speaking of things that need slapping – everyone’s putting Dariela in the dog house now for not leaving the door open and dying next to Chloe.
She’s also Myka from Warehouse 13 (who would be so awesome) and I’m sad that she’s reduced to this shit. She (and Abe) are better than this.
Anyway, the trees are dying and food under threat – so what is causing this?
