Horrifying Femme Fatale – Scarlet
Member of the United State military works on repopulating Britain’s safe zone after the outbreak of the “rage” virus.
Scarlet is working as a nurse, checking in the incoming people returning to Britain and making sure they are healthy enough to be admitted to the safe zone.
Uncertain of admitting the children, Scarlet follows her orders until the “rage” virus resurfaces after their mother is found outside of the safe zone. Strangely, their mother is infected showing no outward signs of the virus but her blood and saliva.
Believing that the children may carry the same immunity to the “rage” virus, Scarlet sacrifices her life to deliver the children to safety.
I think that makes you the youngest person in the entire country. Well, your blood pressure is A-OK and you’re negative on any serious disease or afflictions. I think you’re okay to come in. Welcome back to Britain. – 28 Weeks Later (2007)
It all makes sense. They’re executing code red. Step 1: Kill the infected. Step 2: Containment. If containment fails, then Step 3: Extermination. – 28 Weeks Later (2007)
Scarlet admits that she is expendable before she actually dies trying to deliver the children to safety. It was brought up, but it still came as a shock when Scarlet dies at the hands of the children’s infected father.
She is a self-sacrificing hero though her efforts end up being for nought when the boy becomes a carrier of the “rage” virus. Scarlet was a caring and compassionate person who was uncomfortable with bringing children to the safe zone, her uncertainty was well-founded.
