I went to see WWZ today with my sister-in-law.
And my god I am in love with Segen.
I was really expecting her to be one of the characters that gets killed off and forgotten (the way the seals at the base do). Protecting Gerry and getting him to his next destination, but never making it out alive themselves. Because that’s the usual outcome in movies ya know? The “damsel in distress” can’t fend for herself. She’s too scared. But we all know that’s bullshit.
I thought for sure one of the male soldiers was gonna live to see that Gerry made it to the W.H.O. Facility to find what he needed. And I was so FUCKING PUMPED THAT SEGEN WAS THE ONE TO KEEP ON GOIN’.
Even Gerry’s fucking copilot was so terrified he flew the copter the hell out of Jerusalem when the zombies started scaling the walls and throwing themselves into the city. The second he heard on his radio that there was danger, he fled, leaving his companion.
But Segen. Segen was fucking BRILLIANT. Staring danger right in the face and never running away. When she was bitten I thought Gerry just cut her fingers off; OH NO. IT WAS HER WHOLE FUCKING HAND. And of course she was in pain! SHIT. They wrapped a tourniquet around her wrist and bandaged her up and she kept fucking going. Climbed a ladder with one working hand while she was in a world of pain and got into the plane.
When Gerry re-bandaged her severed hand and poured the alcohol on it, it broke my heart how she was in so much pain. She was so afraid that cutting it off wouldn’t have been enough and she grunts and struggles, never screaming or breaking down, just sipping on the alcohol and squeezing the bottle and the arm-rest. She was in so. much. pain.
Even after losing her hand, she never stopped being the most useful and magnificent character. Surviving the plane crash, getting Gerry to the facility, and sneaking into the B-Wing like a fucking ninja. Combat crawling; lurking; shooting zombies that were a clear threat.
She never caused the zombies to be aware of their location on accident or without good reason. When presented with a clear threat, she acted. Running with her arm all bandaged in a sling. Never tripping. She was never dead weight. They gave her a baseball bat to defend herself, she didn’t ask for a more powerful weapon. She took what she was given and made it work. She took the gun as a last resort weapon (after Gerry had refused it) because she knew they were going to need it.
I have so much respect for Segen.
