I Remember[]

The night Farewell burned, the night I lost Sarah, O'Brian was the soldier who took Sarah on the chopper. O'Brian, I'm sure of it. Now NERO shows up, two years later, out of nowhere, studying Freaks? And they mention this guy by name, like he's still alive. O'Brian. How is he still alive?

Finding NERO[]

So NERO shows up out of nowhere. For two years, we think everything's gone. No more army, cell towers, satellites, airplanes, government. Nothing. All gone. Then a NERO chopper shows up out of nowhere. Are they here to help? No, they're studying Freaks. What's up with that?
