    I'll save you some time, you beat them in anyway you would kill or incapacitate a normal human. They're literally less intelligent humans and the ending, regardless of how much I enjoy the rest of the movie, made zero sense.

    Glad you mentioned that after all this while of inbreeding amongst the already mutation prone clones would result in a terrible lack of heterozygotes and people with degenerated DNA .. most likely no children would be born at all.

    Dude, a few of your questions were already answered. Obviously the government made the Tethered because the tunnel system is extensive. No one else would have that kind of money. Electric bills only need to be paid when someone tells you they do. A government that said no, or ran the power plant themselves wouldn’t have to pay.
    Adalaide never told her family because she repressed the memory of being a Tethered. The fact that they were back in Santa Cruz AFTER the death of her mother, with all the coincidences, THAT’S why she told Gabe. Because she could FEEL her double coming.
    I doubt that the Tethered actually are doubles or wearing the similar clothes underground. I think the same actors were used and similar clothing because humans are stupid and Americans more so. We don’t get things unless we’re hand fed.
    If Santa Cruz faces the ocean and the line of Tethered is perpendicular to the ocean, which they are, your point is invalid.
    Rabbits breed rapidly, and they eat them just as fast. What you’re seeing is fur. They are most likely feeding them scraps, if anything. Rabbits like anything will eat what they can when they’re starving. Even lions will eat wood if they get hungry enough.
    Magic. And the government. Also, I’m sure they would steal what they needed. Peele said so.
    Guns are fucking boring. And lazy. Edge weapons are badass.
    Dude, did you watch the movie?? There were a shit ton of Tethered at the end. Didn’t you see how fast the white family died?? They were hella effective. Only a few thousand survived. Maybe.
    Peele said as you get older you aren’t as forced to the bond. But since the Tethered were insane and bored, it gave them something to do. They probably followed as quickly as possible. It would explain traffic jams that have no reason to exist... As for country change, they probably go as far as they can, then resume following their topside counterpart.
    Red could communicate after YEARS of immersive learning. Anyone could if you drop them in for decades. Also, keeping inline with the bug analogy of Red’s character, Queen Cockroach, bees dance to explain the location of a flower. So, yeah. Dancing.
    As for the timing, she probably told people at the cross sections of tunnels, and if you were paying attention, you know they do a pterodactyl screech, and that carries. She also might have gone cross country to tell everyone. I reiterate it took YEARS TO PLAN. Then on the eve of the attack, she probably gave the signal. If you remember, it wasn’t perfectly timed. The 11:11 god squad dude died HOURS before everyone else in Santa Cruz.
    You know Red was trying to talk to what she thought were her parents. The lack of following a surface dweller probably helped. And again, dancing.

    Everything wrong with Us
    If Adelaide and Red switched places when they were kids, why does Red never explicitly say this to Adelaide or her family? Isn't it why she planned the invasion?
    If Adelaide is one of the tethered, why does she tell Gabe about Red? Wouldn't it be less suspicious to just say nothing?
    If Red was actually born on the surface, why can she feel the tether to Adelaide when apparently no one else on the surface can feel their tether?
    Why did the government just abandon the tethered? Wouldn't it have made more sense to kill them and get rid of the evidence?
    Wouldn't the cost of keeping all these lights on underground cost millions of dollars in electricity bills over the decades?
    How does Red even know that the government is responsible for the tethered if they've already abandoned them by this point and the tethered are all crazy so they can't tell her either?
    If several generations of the tethered have been born, why are their children identical to the surface children? Because that would be a statistical impossibility due to the way gamete cells are made.
    Since Santa Cruz faces the ocean the line that forms there is actually going North, not East.
    If the tethered have been eating solely rabbits for generations, then what have the rabbits been eating? Rabbits are herbivores and need food to eat, and there are no plants in the underground.
    Why do the tethered have similar clothes to the people on the surface? Where did they get them?
    Where did the tethered get their red suits, golden scissors and leather gloves? If they were able to procure those, why didn't they just make or procure guns? I get the symbolism of cutting the tether, but are you really going to let the success of your invasion completely depend on hand to hand combat? And if you can get red suits and golden scissors, count you have at least gotten your husband a pair of glasses?
    If the tethered simulate what the person above them is doing, do the tethered stay in one place or will they follow the person beneath them? What happens when the person gets on a plane and leave the country?
    How did Red communicate the plan to literally millions of tethered all across the country? The tethered don't appear to be able to speak, so how did Red communicate this incredibly elaborate plan to them?
    How did they all invade the surface in unison when they don't seem to have any clocks or calendars? Did they make or procure clocks too?
    What exactly made the tethered think Red was different from the rest of them? Because she's good at dancing? Really?

    but you gotta remember that the teathered has the abilities the prtagonists has as well so if the soldiers are on duty that means the teathered can use guns so they might or will raid the guns shops.

    This movie makes no since, there are no guards or security in the underground. So when Adelaide knocks out red and leaves her down there she could have just left the compound once she woke up. It make no since that she would stay down there.

    with the amount of night jobs out there, id say half of America would be asleep. Plus there are always people awake. Cities especially. And why is no one gunning down their line? At some point people would be able to clearly recognize the terrorists and kill them for kill their friends, family etc.

    Is this psychic link a two way radio or can only the tether do it? Cuz thats some bull.

    Just pretend to be them


    You hear about the tethered, and when the news is over your tethered would attack you/ be at your house. So you kill your tethered, preferably in the neck as to not damage the suit, and your set. Join the 'Hands Across America' and don't talk. This applies in the very beginning when Red was swapped, the tethered didn't know that Red was a surface person. Just avoid the military, and if you ever encounter them, hide, take off your suit, and approach.

    Another way

    Hide and wait, this is common sense. If you have a gun, or a weapon (preferably long range, at least compared to scissors) and kill your double. You'll be fine as if you hide, by yourself, and the body of your double and wait for the tethered to be done, or just don't annoy them and hide the body. The tethered don't want war they want their double dead, and if you wait for the U.S to kill them as they are severely outmatched then you win. EZ

    Hate yourself
    Have as little courage in yourself as possible. Then, the thethered you will have the same amount of courage as you. Then, you kill them while they consider if they can do if or not

    Rabbits lack any fat whatsoever, I think, so that's why rabbit starvation is a thing and it's like the one small animal you explicitly cannot live off of in the long term. If it's not fat, it's something else but it is most definitely something.
