Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The realization of what’s outside is a big shock, yet it makes complete sense, given what we’ve been told before. The moment when we realize the car is playing the "Bad Song" is chilling.

Con: The whole operation of the Sharing Place makes no real sense. Why would the people send their children outside to an expected death?
