Glad the library gave such good memories for you! Really, it was similar to me.

The whole wall thing is weird. At the risk of imposing outside context into the story, when it first showed up at the beginning of this arc it had all the implications of current border politics, and was built on the idea of, essentially, a hoax disease. As the arc comes to a close, in the real world we have a real disease, an increased emphasis on the need for the sort of restrictions we see in things like borders, but also debates about to what extent the government should go to restricting people’s behavior for the public good. It’s...a bit odd to look back on that now. Not sure what that all means, if anything, but it’s weird.

EDIT: Just to add: As is, the arc is probably more about people coming together in tough situations and dealing with change than any strict political analogies.
