Your favorite couples in television history--Carrie and Mr. Big from Sex and the City, Jim and Pam from The Office, Cory and Topanga from Boy Meets World--whatever happened to them when the world ended?
Were they all able to sort out the inevitable conflicts from their quirky personalities and different backgrounds? Were they able to settle on life goals as a couple? Were they able to find food? Could they defend their shelters from the undead? When the Harvest came to consume humanity, could they even agree in which direction to hopelessly flee?
Chris Scott fills us in at Medium on all of these couples, starting with Monica and Chandler from Friends:
After moving to the suburbs, Monica and Chandler welcomed their third child, Lucas. Chandler was laid off from his job, which, along with the stress of parenting 3 children, led to considerable tension between him and Monica. But after 6 months of couple’s counseling, Monica and Chandler repaired their marriage. And Chandler losing his job ended up being a blessing in disguise, allowing him to make a much needed career change.
Like most of the public, Monica and Chandler dismissed initial rumors about The Syndrome as just that — rumors. In the early days, that was easy enough to do. Propped up by obscure conspiracy websites and less than reliable talk radio personalities, reports of the mysterious and terrifying so-called pandemic, first appearing in Northern Canada, seemed to be little more than isolated incidents connected only by fear-mongers and wild imaginations. It wasn’t until a series of unusual deaths in Washington State that the mainstream media began treating The Syndrome with the seriousness we now know it warranted. Per Monica’s urging, Chandler began stockpiling canned food and essentials in their basement — which they would then be forced to abandon in the evacuation. Their last known whereabouts were at a quarantine center near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
