  • Did everyone just forget about the pendants? You'd think the Patriots would be all over them, building amplifiers, etc.

    • Well, Rachel destroyed a lot of them (about 5), so there's only 7 or so left, scattered throughout the country. And the Patriots seem to be doing a good job of taking over as is.

    • As told through the story so far, the Patriots are yet unaware of the pendants. Sure there were spies throughout the regions before the Patriots claimed settlement, however it hasn't been implied that any of them were aware of them. Most of the Monroe Republic army at the time didn't necessarily understand that the pendants were the key for Monroe's power, it appeared to be a select few who had information on the pendants. It appears deceiving that it wasn't questioned by alot more people, though throughout their settlement it has never arisen as to 'how' the power came online, only that Monroe was responsible, even during capture this information was never requested from Monroe.

      It does beg to question though, if Randal was in league with the Patriots as implied from the story, how would they be unaware unless it was Randal alone who had the inside information and declined to share, after all he was apart of the development process but that doesn't imply he shared that information.

      It could be that Randall was planning a coup or something, or that memo got lost in the mail.

    • That is pretty good, I never though about a coup and when I think of the situation it's entirely plausable that Randall could of been trying to control the government, other governments or whatever. I didn't see anyone else from the original development team standing by his side, he never involved anyone who wasn't already and truthfully appears to act on his own behalf.

    • Well, I kinda had the impression that the pendants only worked because they were connected to the Tower, which was immune to the Blackout in a way that was never explained. Of course, now that the Tower is broken beyond all repair, the pendants are effectively useless now. (Sad)

      Last I checked, Aaron Pittman still has that one pendant, and it looks as if it'll never work again.

      Good point. If that's the case, the Pendants are just shinies now. Plus, remember how Danny died in Episode 11? They spend 10 episodes trying to get him back, and as soon as they do, he dies. Case in point, the Pendants are just another plot device.

    • You's may be right that the pendants relied on functionality of the Tower, hence why they are of no value after that scenario. The pendants didn't generate their own power, only disabled the absorbtion ablility in the near vacinity, this could lead to a few other questions.

      It's pretty apparent the Patriots have no interest in the pendants, if thier reliance on the Tower is critical to thier function then they would be of no use. This would assume that the Patriots indeed do know of the pendants and how they function, which hasn't been discussed in the story as yet. If they weren't aware of the reliance, however aware of the pendants, then one would assume that the Patriots would still seek out the pendants.

    • There is a scene in the episode where Doctor Horn is examining the burned bodies onboard his ship. In that scene, one of the pendants is shown lying on a table nearby

    • I think we need to review all the pendants we have actually seen thus far...and might have to update the "Pendant" page.

      1. Ben Matheson. He had one, and gave it to Aaron Pittman upon his death. Then Monroe got it, and Rachel Matheson ended up destroying it once she got it.

      2. John Sanborn. He had one, and Rachel Matheson ended up destroying once she got it.

      3. Grace Beaumont. She has one, and I don't know what happened to it.

      4. Bradley Jaffe. He had one, and the Monroe Republic took it from him. I don't know what happened to that pendant after that.

      5. Randall Flynn. He had one, and I have no idea what happened to it.

      6. Jane Warren. She has one, and I think she still has it.

      7. Miles Matheson. He got that one off that nuclear bomb, and I have no idea what happened to it.

      So, Aaron Pittman has one in his possession starting in Season 2, and who knows which one had it before him.

      I totally missed Doctor Calvin Horn possessing one of the pendants. (Surprised)

      There were five pendants that remain unaccounted for. Is it possible that those ones ended up in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with the Patriots?

      Go ahead and update it if you want.
