Maybe. We were left in a "Dynasty wedding scenario", waiting to see who survived.

But it's time for the third season so clearly we have to reveal how many cast members can withstand a fusillade of automatic weapons fire at point-blank range with near-zero cover to protect them.

Anyone want to guess if the number is greater than zero?
