Survival of the fittest
Proclaiming the destruction of the three American compounds in New York, West Virginia and Texas at the hands of marauding “guests,” LANGDON sends chills down the spines of the Outpost 3 inhabitants, telling them he’ll be evaluating the camp’s residents to determine who should survive, post-apocalypse. THE CHOSEN ONES will live in The Sanctuary; everyone else will be forced to suicide! Assessing GALLANT, Langdon takes particular interest in his homosexuality and his anger towards his grandmother EVIE. Describing in detail a previous sadomasochistic, bondage episode in which Evie failed to convert him, Gallant fantasises about Langdon before having sex with the mysterious RUBBER MAN. Witnessing the sex scene, Evie reports his indiscretions to evil wardens MS MEAD and MS VENABLE who torture Gallant, turning him against Evie. Outraged that she’s jeopardised his survival, Gallant stabs a suited figure to death. Realising he’s slaughtered Evie, Gallant is instructed to lie that his grandmother died in her sleep, otherwise he won’ be selected for The Sanctuary!
