Episode #155: Divided Allegiances


In discussing the film Allegiant (2016), the hosts discuss the flip in Tris and Four’s judgement, the pure versus damaged perspective, and what all these changes mean for Ascendant.

Question of the Week: With Tris being the only “pure” Chicagoan in the films, what implications does that have for the ways “pure” and “damaged” people are seen and treated? What implications does it have for the parallel with real world racism that we saw in the book?

Check out our episodes on Divergent and Insurgent, and on the Allegiant novel!
