It was impossible not to notice the Hurricane Katrina vision while viewing the cold opening of this week’s episode Nick steals around a tent encampment. It was long ago that Americans saw other Americans spell out “Save Us” on their rooftops. Nick subsequently finds his way into a luxury if empty housing development, where Carlos, a guy, is waiting for Strand.
It was in the devastation of Hurricane Katrina that Strand, before his great wardrobe and before the apocalypse, lost his hard won bundle. It just so happens that all his money sunk into New Orleans before the city itself was sunk beneath floodwaters.
