* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: The Undead Liberation Army's main draw is that it seems that they're just trying to speak up for the rights of the Undead and, just like a lot of real terrorist groups, it's hard not to agree at least in part with what they want. Leading to more and more PDF sufferers joining. Thus enabling Victus to clamp down harder on zombies...which just pushes more into the ULA's arms.

Added DiffLines:

* AwkwardFatherSonBondingActivity: Kieren and his dad catch up on all the films he's missed while he was dead. It's mostly awkward because Kieren's just returned from the dead, [[spoiler: and even more so because his death was self-inflicted.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The rehabilitation hospital Kieren was first in shows group therapy sessions, although it was focused mainly on dealing with their newly-recovered personhood rather than individual diagnoses. [[spoiler: Season 2 takes a dark view of this, with any undead being too vocal about the unethical new laws being taken away for "rehabilitation".]] There's also a PDS caretaker support group (led by a well-meaning but ineffective community leader) and a telephone hotline (that immediately puts you on hold). It seems like everyone's aware that the zombies and their families need SOME kind of support, but no one knows how they're supposed to go about doing it. So everyone just tries to pretend that it's all normal...
