So what happened to Gemma in the end? Did she survive the abduction and inferred sexual assault by the masked marauders? She was so hyper-entitled till the end. "Hello. I see a light and hear a commotion down stairs. SOMEONE MUST BE HERE TO HELP ME!"

Ironic they filmed the events for use in a lawsuit when the BF was caught on tape bludgeoning a man to death with a food can.

The writers did a good job of creating two characters that no one can feel sorry for.

That law-suit crap he mentioned in the beginning was humurous. All they did was complain, and let their food just rot... I hate people like this, and its really unfortunate that I see them all over the place. "Oh look, theirs a black out, let me pay for water with my plastic debit card..." Moron...

This is why the government is falling apart, people like these. Those that produce nothing. They exists because they use others for their happiness. Little Gemma got a rude awakening. Welcome to life in the big city. And I'm surprised that NO GUNS WERE HARMED by these two. They were those people that believed the government and the police are there to protect them and serve them, or the robbers that broke in and had they're way with her, well they didn't have guns either now did they.

It is ironic that the "most successful" people will be the hardest hit if the power goes out. So many people are blissfully unaware how anything works when their technology fails. I am a fan of the TV show Revolution since it give viewers a few glimpses of what life may be like if we are totally disconnected from our technology.

Well the bludgeoning a man to death stuff was self-defence, he was treatened and attacked so its kinda fair... The stupid thing is how can anyone cannot open the food can using knife (he even injured his hand), did he really that spoiled!!!
