El Paso wasn’t the Promised Land that Ian and his crew had hoped for, but it wasn’t a total bust either. The concept of a safe haven in today’s world was a fool’s errand at best. This was the consensus of their tiny band and to keep moving their only salvation. While others waited in their pens, the four from the private security company moved on, taking on as many they could help, in hopes that they too would join the fight. Their journey was long and arduous, but it was worth it...they hope.
El Paso is where the final evidence that this is more than a simple lab experiment gone wrong is. It was too focused, with too many players who knew too much too early in the game, causing assumptions to be made. Assumptions that gained strength with every step they took until the small troop was convinced that this was not just a simple virus of natural origins. America was under attack.
For Which We Stand is a postapocalyptic thriller that lends credence to the fears that many share. Is it possible? No one can say. Five Roads to Texas is but one of hundreds of end-of-the-world scenarios. We all know it’s coming; how and when are the only questions.
