Nerve: The Final Round
  • Sociology → Conformity → Dangers of Conformity
  • Science → Human Behavior → Herd Mentality

Vee and Ian are in the final round of Nerve, a dare game in which they can either be an anonymous watcher or a player. They have to participate in the dares that the watchers create for them, and the final dare is to shoot the other player first. Another player joins the fray, and the majority of the anonymous watchers vote for him to shoot Vee. Vee makes the watchers aware that they are responsible for what happens in the game even if they are only watching.
