E.G.G Q&A: Episode 6
This Q&A contains full spoilers for E.G.G Episode 6: For the Fallen. If you have not yet read it, please click here to do so now.
With Mother Egg on the ground, Julian on the loose, and their best friend dead, Josh and Acacia really go eggs to the wall in this episode. The two tracked Julian and Tanner (otherwise known as Venom) to a power plant and a fight ensued. But little did Josh know that Acacia was more desperate to save Eileen than he'd previously thought. Behind his back, Acacia injected Eileen with the experimental drug known as Extremis, hoping for the best. She may have just succeeded...
Okay, so again, since no questions are comments were left, we're going to roll with the new format I introduced last week, where I touch on all of the major developments in the episode and what they mean. Ready? Here we go.
Death of Eileen
Josh emerged from the destroyed Hall of E.G.G, carrying Eileen in his arms, with Acacia walking close behind him. The agents moved to the sides and made a path as Josh and Acacia passed through, carrying the body of their best friend.
Josh walked into the medical bay and laid Eileen on a bed. Medics rushed over, but Josh knew it was already too late. He walked to the other end of the room, where Acacia silently cried to herself. Josh sat down next to her and put his hand on her back.

I think that this is a very powerful scene, and not only that, but just the entire feel of hopelessness that comes with it. Josh emerges from the Hall of E.G.G, which is completely wrecked by Venom and the agents of doom, carrying his oldest friend in his arms. I pictured this scene, and immediately knew I had to lead with that for Episode 6. It just hammers in the fact that Eileen is longer with them, and they need revenge! One of my friends, in fact, was so inspired she actually drew concept art! Which I thought was simply beautiful, as you can see to the right.
Josh pressed a button, and all of the screens came on, displaying the face of none other Director Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D.
“Agent Westbrook.” He said. “Do you mind explaining to me exactly what happened down there?”

Josh spotted Natasha Romanov, aka the Black Widow on a nearby roof, most likely getting a damage assessment for Fury.

I know, right! Nick Fury and the Black Widow, two big fish at S.H.I.E.L.D making guest appearances in E.G.G! Now, a lot of the time when things like this happen, people say don't get used to it, it was only a once in a lifetime deal. Well, I tend to take a different approach to things. Get used to it, get very used to it. Because this is only the beginning of a slew of hero filled cameos! Some characters, as you'll eventually see, actually play full roles in the plot! We already saw Viper aka Madame Hydra, as E.G.G skillfully took her down! So stay tuned, because we've got more heroes and villains coming your way!
Julian was hit a few times, but then he pressed a button on his wrist activating a holographic shield and deflecting Josh’s attack. Josh then set it to Strand and fired a web at the ceiling. He used it to swing across the room and kick Julian to the ground.

Venom jumped onto the wall and dodged all of Acacia’s blasts. The he flipped off of the wall and kicked Acacia into a tesla coil. Acacia screamed as she was electrocuted and fell to the ground.

These two are clearly cause for trouble. Josh and Acacia are not going to have a very easy time taking down this deadly duo. Josh and Julian are old friends, so Julian is more than adept to Josh's fighting style. As we'll see in the next episode, Julian is pretty much an unbeatable foe for our fearless Director!
But if you think Josh is in trouble, then you must not get the gravitas of Acacia's situation. With then Venom symbiote, Tanner has more power than he ever could even dream of! The fight is definitely going to be one for the ages. Looks like next episode is cut out to be the most action packed E.G.G to date!
Suddenly the cocoon began to shake. Allyson screamed and hid behind Agent Becket. It shook and shook until finally Eileen’s arm punched through! She grasped both sides and pulled it open. She slowly sat up and looked around. Allyson screamed and ran out of the room.
“Ew! Ew! Ew!” She shouted all the way down the hall. Agent Becket drew his gun.
“Don’t move zombie!” He shouted. Eileen looked at him. Agent Becket’s hands shook, and he dropped the gun, running right behind Allyson, shouting “Zombie! Zombie! Zombie!” Eileen looked at her hands. Then she felt around her stomach and back where Tanner’s blade pierced her and felt… nothing. She looked up and smiled.
“I’m alive.” She said.

Talk about a turn of events! The Extremis, as you may or may not know (And if you don't know, I provided clear meant for you to obtain that information in Episode 6!) is an experimental drug that rewrites your biological system. Undoes you and recreates you. It's a little different from the MCU version featured in Iron Man 3, but this is closer to the comics. Yes, I read comics. Anyways, as you can see, it brought Eileen back from the dead! But what terrible side affects will it have? Agent Becket listed off a few, will Eileen be affected? Or will she be right as rain? Well, we'll find out tomorrow, now won't we?
It's the epic conclusion to the Incident. Josh v.s Julian, Acacia v.s Venom, and Eileen is back in action! It a throw down showdown as the Eggheads battle to save the city! So tune in tomorrow, September 12, and be sure to catch E.G.G Episode 7: Extremis!
So, tuning in to Episode 7?
