First of all, I like Tess, a fact that would not change were my theory true. I'd imagine an attractive woman in the criminal underworld of a post-apocalyptic quarantine zone would have to do all manner of distastful things to survive.

Don't paint me as a misogynist for positing a simple theory.

You're right about Terence, I didn't have the scene in front of me and didn't remember the line about the merchandise. That pretty much boils the evidence down to the gentleman in the tent with the lady in his lap, substansially damaging the credibility of the theory.

Haha well like I said I am sure aren't a misogynist and didn't post this with any malevolence. But it is a strange conclusion to jump to; a bit like wondering if a girl is a prostitute becaue she wears a short skirt and a low-cut shirt. I know you don't see it that way; that was my point. There's kind of an ingrained misoygyny in society. Like when that chick talks to Joel at the very beginning in the Boston QZ, did you think he was a post-apocalyptic (100% guaranteed fungus-free ) gigolo?

The one that got assigned to outside work duty? I assumed Joel had some kind of arrangement with the bureaucrats to keep his schedule clear, but I assumed he was bribing them with supplies, not flesh.

Oh, yes. Tess was a raging prostitute.
But she was a kind one. The ones who give to the charity.
