I thought the girl who wanted to die was a really interesting conversation. If you think about it, people would indeed spend a lot of time cooking up theories on what was happening and why.

- This plague is the punishment of an angry God or a fulfillment of some prophesy.
- This is the result of magic / demonic stuff but was brought about by humans.
- This plague is made by the government and was released on accident, or for nefarious purposes.
- This plague is the result of alien intervention or stuff from space. (Meteorites and such.)
- It doesn’t mean anything / it was just random chance / we can never know the truth / shut up and stop talking about it.
