    Just listened. Damn, you picked out my good ideas.
    Dog Killer Guy is working with the Guilty Remnant. Faking dreams.
    Aimee is working in there too. Night time access to Kevin. Stealing his shirts. Going along with the story about the dog.

    So, is this TV Show all about a mysterious Grand Conspiracy against Kevin?

    Now, Kevin’s dad. If Amy is Kevin’s minder, is Ms Mayor Kevin’s Dad’s minder? Has she implanted a little hearing aid bug in Scott Glen’s ear so that the voices of Angels tell him what to do? Did she use her influence to help him escape? Did AIMEE… omg yes!… Aimee calls Ms Mayor, tells her Jill is stuck in the fridge, Ms Mayor tells Scott Glen via his earbug, and she is rescued.

    More wafflage.

    The Guilty Remnant want the world to Remember. Much of the rest of the world want to move along. Have memorials, as if they are the victims of a hurricane or something. But the GR knows it was a Special event, that needs to be focussed on. GR deaths make people think. The Sheriff of the town going homicidal makes people think. They don’t want Father Ecclestone helping people get over their grief. They want the grief to be the center of their lives.

    We saw scenes of decorations being put up for Memorial Day. That’s obviously where the RealDolls are going to be planted. They are going to force people to remember.

    (Stolen from some loopy Christian site…)
    “The tribulation is a seven-year period that immediately precedes the return of Christ and the establishment of His millennial kingdom, which lasts for 1,000 years. The first 3 ½ years of the tribulation will be a time of peace and cooperation, and the second 3 ½ years of the tribulation will be a time of war and catastrophe. At the midpoint of the tribulation, the Antichrist will proclaim himself god and require worship from all people of the world. Many will bow down and worship the Antichrist, including taking his mark of worldwide registration. Some will refuse to worship the Antichrist and receive his mark, and many will be killed for this act of disobedience. The second half of the tribulation is referred to as the “Great Tribulation.” There will be extraordinary catastrophes all over the world during this period.”

    Obviously Holy Wayne sees himself as either the Good or Evil Guy is this little timeline.

      In this timeline, are we then going to get the anti Christ this season?
