According to me, The character the most touching is Sam Rogers. That is the only man who is human from the beginnig to the end in this world where money is more important than human. Eric Dale and Peter Sullivan play a key role in the story, it is thanks to them that the company knows about the future crisis. The Chief Executive Office is haughty, I think. He has not got pity for nobody, like Jared Cohen, who does not hesitate to approve of the layoff of Sarah Robertson, but they still said that they will always be together. Will Emerson is very involve in the story and he acts according to him to save himself. According to me, Seth Bregman is secondary, he attends to the conduct of major decisions, but he will be dismiss after events even if he wanted do this job. He arrived at the bad time. Moreover, characters come progressively according to the hierarchy, but we never saw characters together from the beginning.
