Tear Jerker: ZOOOO Ommx BIES
Abby's death in the third Chapter. Trying to keep up the barricade to save the others, she isnīt able to save herself. So in the end she is forced to shoot herself, to prevent becoming a zombie as well, leaving behind Alistair and her children.
In Chapter 5 Isabelle's death: The first and final kiss with Ethan, the way she still maintains her confidence and finally her desparate attempt to reach the others by swimming after the boats, just to drown in the end, without ever meeting her mother... At least she goes out with a smile, thinking of Ethan.
