Apropos of nothing:
Military shows up to protect neighborhood of our characters.
Military apparently shoots survivors in that distant house with the reflection/light.
Military violently abducts wounded/sick/depressed residents.
Sick/injured are being cared for with no evidence of sinister purposes or other wrongdoing. But other "threats" are being held? Then taken somewhere? Sometimes?
Military is planning "Cobalt"; evacuating and killing all survivors.
Military just leaves neighborhood, but the threat of killing survivors is never shown or hinted at again. Maybe they plan to just bomb the block once they're clear or something, maybe they were never going to go house-to-house execution style, but for what should've been the crux of the crisis the survivors face, it was never even alluded to.
Military is overrun by 2,000 zombies.
Did I miss anything major? Individual soldiers going AWOL or against the plans can always be hand-waved away, but at no point is there a clear through line to connect any of these actions by the military at large. One scene to another, one episode to another, the military ruined this show for me more than any of its other faults.
