"Death has to happen. That's what bein alive is all about. You re alive, and then you re dead. It can t just stop happening."
But it can. And it has. So what happens after death is now less of a philosophical question than a question of actual reality. On the disc, as here, they need Death. If Death doesn t come for you, then what are you supposed to do in the meantime? You can t have the undead wandering about like lost souls. There's no telling what might happen, particularly when they discover that life really is only for the living.
