As an aside, I'm curious if anyone has any information about why the people in Woodbury would be running extension cords to all of the light fixtures? Instead, why wouldn't they just hook a larger generator to the power grid and fire up the regular electrical connections in people's homes?
Just an asthetic question.
That's valid, but you could explain it by saying that they don't have a larger generator, only multiple small ones. You can't sync those together and the wiring has to be kept separate. Therefore, lots of extension cords.
Do we even know how much of Woodbury even has power? The communal areas, the Governor's suite, the upscale guest quarters, sure. But what about individual quarters?
