    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.

      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 :)

    Agh what a trick, they fooled us, using coffee and saying "5 days" and totally surprised me at the end, but I feel like I should've known because I noticed that their eyes weren't that red compared to the show, and I reasoned that maybe it was because RT didn't feel like it? Good Short!

      i think they were treating all of cancer, and when the man said he only had a few days left, it was because his was terminal

      @JewishCyclops they were trying to cure near any cancer. It was them sneaking code into the DNA so it wouldn't be rejected, or absored completely.

      It was a cure for fucking cancer. Not something that you can really kill people with. Also, it ended right at the start of day 1. Not really enough time to do anything with it.
