For lucky Severance fans who are at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) this weekend, they got to experience the show at the Severance Activation held at Hard Rock Hotel first hand. Not everyone can be there, so we’ve collated some of our favorite coverage of the coveted event. Set up like an employee orientation, attendees got the fully-immersive Severance experience on the Severed Floor with the exception of actually getting your memories Severed. If you haven’t caught up on all episodes, spoilers may be ahead!
