51:25: Linda is no longer Linda. Now she’s a Deadite infected freak. And just to think, Ash stuck around to ensure her safety specifically. Maybe he should’ve bolted with Scott. And then again maybe he did the perfect thing, and this turn of events provided the chance to prove he was not only emotionally strong enough to endure, he also had the physical skills and killer instincts that were clear must-haves when tangling with members of the undead.
Interestingly enough, the inevitable battle is put on momentary hold when a battered Scott suddenly returns to the cabin. Scott’s down and out but Ash’s got one opinion on the whole matter: They’re not going to die. Oh, but they are! But first, Ash has some ass to kick, right after his final moral struggle with his situation. That dies quickly and it’s time to take names.
