Some of these are nitpicky i admit but not in an attempt to suggest the episode was bad, in fact i have tendency to look deeper into things that i really enjoy
Why wouldn't carly/doug and ben bring the rifle back to the house at the end?
How did Andy know the generator stopped working from inside the barn when you took the belt off?
The gate that Lee and Mark use to escape the bandits was 1) left wide open when they ran back onto the farm and 2) doesn't seem like much of a defense against actual human beings like bandits for example
Anyone know how Jolene fit in with the bandits? At first i thought that campsite was just hers for her and her (kidnapped?) daughter until the i saw she was talking to the bandits on the camera
Do the bandits know that they're eating people? If not, why would Jolene know and not them? Although the dialogue from the bandits might suggest otherwise, do you think it's possible the bandits were shooting at lee and Mark to intentionally keep them on the land/closer to the St. Johns? If so, it implies that they do know they're eating people.
At the end, Jolene suggests that as long as the bandits keep getting food from the dairy that Clem will be safe. Suggesting that maybe the bandits act as kidnappers (and rapists?) and took her child from her but if so why keep her around?
What do you think the purpose of Jolene's recording was? Who or what was she doing it for?
Do you think the St. Johns and the bandits were in cahoots more so than just a mutual agreement? Do you think Danny truly took Lee to go looking for their camp? I kind of got the feeling that he was purposely going there to tie up some loose ends being that he seemed a bit concerned about the camera. If Jolene knew about the group being at the motor inn. Maybe the bandits did too? Maybe the bandits gave the St. Johns the tip about the group and had them to go play nice in attempt to get more "food" Or do you think the St. Johns needing gas and stumbling across the group at the Motor Inn was genuine?
Other than just the over all creepy vibe from the family, did anyone catch any discernible clues to suggest that were up to no good before the big reveal? Things i noticed on a second playthrough:
- After you come back from the camp with Danny, if you talk to him he says something about giving tours to band kids before things went bad. Ben, Travis and their teacher were part of a school band iirc.
- The traps in the back part of the barn when you first see it are the same as the trap that caught the teacher in the beginning.
