What is they say about curiosity? It killed the cat?
Well, in this case, curiosity almost kills the Carter.
Carter Conners was a magnet for trouble, if she didn't actively seek it, then it would probably find her one way or another. It was a miracle she hadn't been arrested.
But that didn't matter, because she still managed to find herself with a one-way ticket to a planet that had been marinating in radiation for 97 years. Now just throw in some uncontrollable delinquents, a tyrant with a track record of an asshole, and a few native inhabitants of Earth that want them dead and what do you have?
Chaos. You have utter chaos.
Maybe a little anarchy too.
And just when Carter thought it couldn't get any worse, it did, because this was her. Survival of the fittest meant everything, and Carter learned that the hard way.
They might say curiosity killed the cat, but they always seem to forget that satisfaction brought it back.
WARNING: Expletives, violence, Bellamy with his top off, death-- you know the drill.
