“Perhaps you might look again, Gavin. We’ve met our obligations.” ~King Ezekiel
This is just an ordinary line in an ordinary part of the exchange with the Saviors in their drop off of fruit. But it let us know that King Ezekiel was confident in the deal and had no intention of fooling Gavin. He was truly confused by the incorrect number that was found. It let us know that something bad was going to happen and Ezekiel was going to have to start to deal with the consequences of some of Gavin’s “visceral” punishments.
“Here’s the beautiful thing, Your Majesty — You can tear it out and cut it down.You can burn it and throw it all away. But if you want, it can all grow back.”~Nabila
Obviously, Nabila was talking about plants in the garden, but we can look at this as a comparison to people and how they deal with tragedy and even the world itself after the apocalypse. The world and the people have been knocked down, broken, bruised, destroyed, wrecked, ruined. But the world and the people can come back.
