Hmm also (just bouncing around from thought to thought here) there’s been a lot of stuff drawing on religious symbolism this series, specifically the story of Noah which is obviously in itself an apocalypse story

Like, the storyline about the gang leaving Malibu very explictly drew on the theme (“You’re Noah? So we’re the animals”) and just now in the series, as everything is looking its bleakest, Tandy prays to God and suddenly there’s a rainbow representing a little hope (ie Gail not being dead). There’s no way that was done unintentionally, but I guess I don’t really know what to make of it
