* When Gang-du is in quarantine, he's anaesthetised multiple times, yet it doen't knock him out. He just sits there in a daze, muttering that he must get to Hyun-seo who is trapped beneath Wonhyo Bridge. Remember, this is ''Gang-du'', who had previously been shown falling asleep at inopportune moments. Could the surgery have cured his narcolepsy? Or are his parental instincts strong enough to overcome any anaesthetic?

** YMMV. After all, he surely had already had a few tantrums, not to mention incessant crying as an infant. Possibly the Souls understand it as a natural part of the maturation process and accept him as he is.

!! Fridge Horror
* Wanderer points out the Soul couple raising a human child as a sign of hope. But what's going to happen when that kid hits the terrible twos and nobody in his world understands human child-rearing, discipline, anger management or even human psychology? How is he going to adapt to a world where everybody he meets is "perfect" and he's not? That kid will be lucky to reach four years old before they put a Soul in him, just to shut him up.

*** Huh, I don't remember that. I guess it would explain that. With perfectly selfless, helpful aliens communism might even work.

*** It was mentioned that they had to go to a checkout, but that was only for inventory purposes. One of the humans with Wanderer thinks it's weird.

** They're definitely communist. Note how Wanderer/Melanie just walks into a supermarket (called "Store"-no brand names, apparently there's only one) puts things in her cart and walks out. While it might seem like the car incident, where the Souls are just so trusting of each other they hand over things if asked, there were no signs of a cashier that I saw. Apparently people can just take what they want and leave-there's no buying or selling. While the Souls appear to have circumvented the incentive problems communism has by just being natural altruists who freely give to each other, how they allocate resources is still an issue. With no money, it would be very difficult to know what people wanted or didn't want for consumer goods. This was another huge problem in actual communism. Do they somehow track what every person takes?

* Removing Souls from human bodies. What is the logic behind showing ''love'' to coaxing aliens out of human bodies?

*** Not really. Jeb notes that aside from the Wiping Us Out things, they're just like us (In terms of feelings) when he saw an Elderly Couple together. Wanderer then confirms as much.
