Lucy’s experience with the Ghoul would suffice to check anybody’s willpower, however this episode was the very first where hetrulylooked for to put her through the ringer. Her descent into the dark heart of the Super Duper Mart is a crucible that strips away what was left of her innocence. That’s not to state that she loses her optimism, or her desire to think in the good of the world; if anything, she leaves justmoreidentified that assisting others, even to her own hinderance, is the ideal thing to do. Take her experience with bad Martha, in among the series’ most poignant scenes up until now, when Lucy wills Martha– an evil spirit going feral– to sanity right up till the minute she’s required to put a bullet in her head.

My name is Roger” He snarls and coughs like a passing away street pet dog. He’s gradually going feral– losing his mind to the impacts of ghoulification– a procedure a minimum of postponed by the vials that the Ghoul so frantically longs for. This is why the Ghoul dragged Lucy far from their dilemma with Wilzig’s head: He’s currently coughing and sputtering himself, so apparently hours far from his own zombification.

Anyhow, the Ghoul understands “Rog,” and they capture up. “You’ve outlived all of us,” Roger informs the Ghoul. “How long given that you initially began wastelanding?” Perhaps, then, not all evil spirits are from before the war.
