Reaction No. 1

You venture into the weird part of the mall... The part that has the Radio Shack and Hot Topic and the bad hair salon. 

Every mall has its underbelly. The lighting is less ideal, it is emptier, and you see that the potted plants are decaying. And now, with it being in the aim of God's wrath, it is utterly destroyed like the rest of the mall. Amazingly though, it still looks visibly worse.

Death is not the great equalizer in this scenario. The easiest comparison would be ancient Rome: the great Forum in the capital versus the shitty cracked pots in some backwoods history museum in an unnameable part of Italy or Greece or Turkey.
