** Dayna Jurgens from TheStand impales her neck on a piece of glass to prevent Flagg from interrogating her. Nadine Cross also does this to prevent Flagg's offspring from being born, and she's probably AxCrazy by this point. Rita (Larry's first traveling companion) and a number of the early survivors also commit suicide.
