But did it have to be done to us
So, angry Shan-possessed Greys, a base about to self destruct, Jack's only recent recovery from a shock-induced coma, all the craziness going down in Paradise, the revelation of monsters to the world, etc, etc, don't constitute shit hitting the fan?
I'm not sure what's about the happen. There are enough ghoulies about that I wouldn't be inclined towards a straight fight myself, even with the kind of backup Jack's got, particularly given the Grey base nearby about to self destruct at any moment. I could see Jack making a strategic choice here that, on the face of it, might appear less-than-badass.
Life can be seen like chess, or pinball. In chess you try to win, thus ending the game, as quickly as possible. In pinball, the goal is to keep playing.
I like chess, but I'd rather play pinball.
