Well, they could be repopulating with others from the country, just not the same community. The cliff jumping, presumably, is something that happens regularly too, since they say everyone is done at 72 or whatever. Went to the DC last night, which I think was definitely better than an already strong base. 'The Scene' is pretty in your face, but I think worked, and adds to Dani's first nightmare, along with the conversation about the other boyfriend leaving the next day. The small changes contributed to a much more cohesive whole, and I'm wondering if it creeps up on my year end list. Visually this thing is just on a completely different level.
Also, guess it clicked last night on the rewatch about the fire as well, like Bondo mentions. I'm wondering if it's just the Great Feast aspect that's part of the 90 year thing, maybe the lake play. It is a little muddy.
Definitely seeing the negatives of Christian way more clear, though idk if that's just it being a rewatch or really how much the new stuff adds. Regardless, still a bit dicey by the end, as his test of faith does seem to be him trying to avoid the drink and stay in himself, but ultimately he does look at the girl and decide to take it likely knowing full well what could happen, so alright.
