Some epic deep-sleepers in this town, I'll tell ya that.
It's funny...a lot of people around other sites mention the deep sleepers and the coincidental meetings/happenings.
Yes, LOTS of coincidences happen in this show about fate and circumstance based upon a biblical event. If you can buy the premise, you should be able to buy some coincidences. It's part of the mystical nature of the show.
But, the deep sleepers is pretty hilarious. You would think after the picture stealing at least, they'd all get alarms or something. Fool me once...
But, I have a theory: the GR COULD have just set all the dolls up outside in yards, etc. We already saw a bunch of them set up outside. The final effect would have been the same. This is just artistic license at work - the scenes work better if Nora finds her family at the table where we know they disappeared. So, definitely it requires suspension of disbelief for maximum dramatic effect. I played along.
