    Frank Is Using A Hamper To Collect Water

    From Redditor u/liquorette

    I think the hamper was put there to show the extreme desperation for anything they can get. I’ve always loved this detail. Hopeful/hopelessness.

    The Statue At The Mansion Foreshadows The Soldiers' Eventual Betrayal

    From IMDB

    When Jim, Selena and Hannah first enter the manor where the soldiers have set up their fortress, a Roman statue of the Laöcoon group can be seen in the centre. In Virgil, Laöcoon was a Trojan priest who was attacked by giant serpents sent by the gods, and his most famous line is "Do not trust the Horse, Trojans / Whatever it is, I fear the Greeks even bearing gifts." His appearance is significant because he foreshadows the soldier's betrayal and ulterior motives.
