Getting Infected Was The Easy Part
So as we stated up above, contracting the virus is the easy part. But what happens after you become infected?
Well, if finding the cure is anything like we witnessed in the original Part One, you already know it's nothing pretty at all.
And how could it be with so much carnage and rapid symptom progression, whose gonna even have time to catch their breath?
But, it appears that even with all the chaos, Riley(Matt Mercer) seems to think otherwise. He thinks that he has a chance to beat the odds and be the one to get the answers that evaded Sam 2 years ago.
Good luck to you Riley, but just remember that it was you're poor decision-making that got you into this jam in the first place.
So How Do We Cure It?
Well with all the blood curdling puss oozing out of every orifice possible, it's seems pretty much damn near impossible..lol
What was once thought to only be spread by sexual contact, has now become something passed as easily as the common cold.
This is definitely something you'll want to remember next time you kiss that hot girl or guy at your next party.
Anyhow, somewhere along Riley's plight, he finds the first point of contact that briefly made an appearance in "Contracted Phase One".
You know that creepy guy in the car? Yeah him, and it seems that even after seeing all the gnarly nastiness that happens to anyone who contacts him, he has remained unscathed.
How is this even possible? Well, it looks like it was part of a diabolical plan he had all along to bring his gifts of pain and destruction to the masses.
So if Riley even stands a chance at saving his own life and getting some answers, he must survive long enough to confront BJ(Morgan Brown) and find the cure.
Oh Riley, do you really think it's gonna be that easy?
After Watching, Contracted: Phase II
We were left with a disjointed feeling, largely because the original writer/director Eric England wasn't onboard for the sequel.
You see that's the politics of the film industry. Creators and writers need room to compose and production companies think in deadlines and dollar signs.
And so, this means that the idea of a cohesive vision for Phase II was never in the original design.
So where does that leave fans, who are waiting for Eric's return in Phase III, guess we'll have to wait and see.
