Who are the people killed right before the team meets the imprisoned creature?
In Love, Death and Robots Season 3, Ep
In Vaulted Halls Entombed, a group of special force soldiers go into a cave and see a huge platform where a Cthulu-like creature is prisoned.
Right before the final two team members go down the steps, the team leader shoots two other people who are already on the platform.
I am wondering who they are? As it has been established earlier that all insurgents and the hostage have been eaten by spiders.
Not all insurgents have been killed
Initially, Special Forces finds a body of the hostage and a few bodies of the insurgents, all eaten by the "spiders". But then, when they find themselves surrounded by those creatures, you can hear in the background a machine gun fire. This means, that some insurgents have survived the initial attack and have run deeper into the cave.
