The Stand, Ep 1×06, “The Vigil” aired Jan 21, 2021
And now enter Trashcan Man. For every setback, things seem to be looking up for Flagg in New Vegas. Sure two of Boulder’s spies died before he could question them. He’s got a new ally in Donald Merwin Elbert aka Trashcan Man who has an affinity for flames and making things go boom. Then by episode’s end, he gets the lead he needed to identify the third spy.
Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort break down ep 1×06, “The Vigil”. Things are getting hot for Tom in New Vegas, but the big man manages to first decipher Dayna’s message to flee and then come up with a winning exit strategy. Meanwhile, Mother Abagail’s left the safety of home. This sends the committee and the rest of the town searching for her. This even when she’s asked them not to look. Nick follows the directive and refuses to leave her house until they receive word that she’s been found. Also, Harold and Nadine decide to make their move against the committee.
It’s a certainty that Nick didn’t survive the blast. Do you think that anyone else from the committee may have been lost? Were you screaming at Frannie to get out of there when she was searching Harold’s basement?
