THE upcoming third wave of Covid is expected to wrap up all the loose ends and bring the trilogy to a fitting close, fans believe.
Following the global impact of the first two waves the third has been much anticipated, though critics fear that it is arriving too quickly on the heels of the last one and may botch the ending like Game of Thrones.
Epidemiologist Dr Helen Archer said: “Nobody thought the first wave would do what it did. We were blown away. The second was still powerful, but people knew what to expect.
“But it all comes down to this third wave. I like that we’re returning to Wuhan where it all began and the vaccine race adds that element of tension the second wave was missing, but can they do it?
“We all love a good trilogy but it’s harder than you think. The last Star Wars was bollocks, Blade III sucked, even the Godfather. I just hope it hasn’t written itself into a corner.”
Fan Joe Turner agreed: “Now the November lockdown’s been declared non-canon we’re ready for a final blockbusting instalment of this saga that’s had the whole world gripped.
“Will Covid be remembered fondly like the Dark Knight trilogy, or as a disappointment like the Matrix trilogy?
“No. No, it can’t be as bad as the Matrix trilogy.”
