    Cool twist, as cool as the start of the "Joel episode" of Day 5, but what caused them to throw protocol out the window in the first place? Some other epidemic that's destroying humanity? Otherwise, awesome bite-sized episode.

      There was no other epidemic at this point. They had stayed up 5 days, trying to find the cure for cancer. As she went to sleep, Day 1 of the Big Sleep began.

      She's a cancer researcher pushing her team to save her dying husband in his last few days. They find the cure for EVERY cancer, but go to sleep moments before the Big Sleep.

      Thanks. I actually didn't catch that her husband was dying of cancer, and that, that was the reason for the depression around their office.

    While the science was utter bullshit, and the montage used some pretty silly "sciency" shots, the story was fantastic.

      to be fair no one has a cure for cancer so they had to make some shit up

      I agree with you on the "sciency" stuff lol. But I did a lot of research on the science. It's not TOTAL bull shit. :) Those are cancer and white blood cells after all. But yeah...it's silly :)

    I love you beautiful bastards! I just knew something horrible was going to happen at the end, because if a cure was really found then there would be no more Day 5 and who wants that? I'm sure it would have been nice to have that research team working on a cure to prevent mankind's genocide, but ah well you murdered them in their sleep :)
