Hey everyone.

I love the idea of the particle accelerator prison, but there's one thing that bugs me: What were the cells originally supposed to be?

Like, why did the original particle accelerator just have cells sitting there? I know that in "Things You Can't Outrun" Dr. Wells talked about how there were cavities in the particle accelerator, but the cells look nothing like cavities, and if they were cavities, why could they open up?

Also, why can the cells move? We see the Mist's cell moving in the end scene of "Power Outage", and we see them hanging in different positions in the shot of the particle accelerator in "Things You Can't Outrun."

All these things are very confusing to me, so could someone please explain to me just what the heck is up with the particle accelerator?
