On the wheelchair-bound neighbor - it wasn't the dog bite that caused the amputation. The neighbor was riding a motorcycle when the dog attacked, and the resulting crash injured his leg so badly it had to be amputated. I do think Jackson's arm is getting infected though.
You have to hand it to Dr. Scott for coming at the problem from a different angle. Instead of beating her head against a wall to try & spread an antidote she knows she has, she takes advantage of having the virus source right on the Nathan James. Niels made himself a carrier of worldwide destruction without any thought of the repercussions. He was a mass murderer as far as I'm concerned. Taking him out was similar to disarming a nuclear warhead aimed at every surviving, non-immune person on the planet.
I'm still watching & still entertained by the show. Coincidentally, I also started THE LAST MAN ON EARTH this week without knowing the similarities that would exist. Tickles me to death that both shows had, for a moment, two characters who thought they might be the last people on earth and they could barely stand each other. I don't know what Stephen King wrote. But, I think an awesome ending would be for Julia, Jim & Co. to save the town & the world from the pod people without needing Barbie's help. Then, they could all leave the dome and Julia would tell Barbie to take a hike because she doesn't need him anymore. She survived the end of the world with friends, frenemies, and a dog....and feels friends & a pet will serve her better in this new future. If Barbie's sense of honor & decency toward his fellow man was so easily overwhelmed by his need for The Sex, the Fab Five don't need him.
