In hopes of finding civilization, people, answers, the group journeys to the city whose lights they’ve been able to see from miles away. But group dynamics can be just as hard to navigate as a new city – especially when death and dragons are involved.
You live. You love. You Die. Now RUN. ReMade is a thrilling sci-fi adventure that will take readers past the boundaries of time, space, and even death.
This is the 11th episode of ReMade, a 15-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode was written by E.C. Myers.
ReMade Season One: In one moment the lives of twenty-three teenagers are forever changed, and it’s not just because they all happen to die. “ReMade” in a world they barely recognize – one with robots, space elevators, and unchecked jungle – they must work together to survive. They came from different places, backgrounds, and families, and now they might be the last people on earth. Lost meets The Maze Runner in this exciting serial adventure.
After ten episodes of waiting and waiting, something finally happened! And by something I mean they actually got to the city that’s been off in the distance until now. As the title suggests, they find it pretty empty.
You’d think that would be a bigger concern than it actually was…
So in comparison to the last few episodes, I actually really enjoyed this one. Part of it has to do with the interesting creatures they stumble upon (hint: they remind me of one of my favorite mythical animals). But I also liked the point-of-view character, Loki, more than the recent ones. He hasn’t been very well liked by the rest of the group for his attitude and actions, but understanding his backstory softened his character a bit, in a way that made him more accessible to me unlike before.
Also. Cumberbatches. He calls the creatures cumberbatches. Yep. Dead.
I think this episode was just the change of pace that the serial needed. The city the teens find themselves in appears to be up and running as one would expect a city to be, excluding the lack of other people. In all the previous episodes, nature has acted as one (if not the only) villain, but the city offered supplies and shelter, giving this episode a lighthearted edge. Obviously, I don’t expect that to last, not with how the serial has gone so far, but it seems like we’re finally starting to reach some sort of conclusion. Answers, perhaps??
That would be lovely.
I’d say this one was definitely one of my favorite episodes, if not coming out on the top of the list. Which makes me a bit worried as to how the story is going to progress from here.
