The Walking Dead Recap

AMC has done it again! When I say “it”, I mean leaving me speechless at the end of an episode. Last night’s The Walking Dead definitely did not disappoint. We began in Woodbury, where the Governor spoke with Andrea about taking over his responsibilities for a period of time. He claims that he needs to get his mind back and after her stirring speech to the citizens about staying strong the Governor feels that she is the woman for the job. Andrea looks perplexed while the Governor leaves her to think about his offer. The Governor then meets with Milton to explain that he needs his utmost loyalty—and that after what happened with Merle betraying Woodbury, he is not sure who he can trust.

Meanwhile at the prison, Rick has lost it. He is seen searching for Lori, and amidst the search, he leaves the friendly confines of the fenced-in area. Hershel hobbles down to where he is, and tries to talk him back into the safe zone. Unfortunately, Rick is not willing to return at this time. Glen has also left the prison grounds to search the outside area of the prison to see if any walkers are getting in thru a different entrance.

It then cuts back to Daryl and Merle who are searching for food in the woods. There is a constant argument going on between the brothers about why Merle left Daryl as a child. It is then revealed thru scars on Daryl’s back that both brothers were abused by their parents. Out of the blue, Daryl hears what he thinks is a baby crying. They make their way to the sound and see a Hispanic family fighting off some walkers, but not doing well. Daryl saves the Mom and baby, and Merle even helps fight them off too. Merle begins to rob the people in broad daylight until Daryl aims his crossbow at him and tells him to leave them alone. Daryl then decides it is time to go back to the prison, with or without his brother.

Back at the prison, we see Axel finally begin to open up and talk about his story. He is outside with the others in the group talking to Carol when he takes a bullet in the head! The camera zooms to the edge of the woods, showing the Governor thru a rifle scope. He has led a group from Woodbury to attack those at the prison. Rick and Hershel are quickly pinned down with fire, unable to get clear shots off at the attackers. Carl, Maggie, and Carol fight back and are able to shoot down one attacker who got into one of the guard towers. All of the sudden, a truck starts busting thru the gates of the prison, and parks in the open area. The back door of the truck opens and walkers start pouring out. As my beautiful wife stated, “the Governor just dropped a zombie bomb on them!” The Governor then makes his exit, as Rick tries to get back into the gates—only to be completely surrounded by walkers…until Daryl and Merle come to the rescue! Glen comes to the rescue of Hershel who was stuck in the field by himself.

The episode ends leaving a lot of questions…who is really in charge at Woodbury? Will the group take back Merle? Will they have to leave the prison? Will Rick get his act together? Will they attack the Governor? Stay tuned to find out!

Return of the Walking Dead (warning: contains spoilers!)

Last night, the 2nd half premiere of “The Walking Dead” took place, ending a hiatus from December, and helping end the misery of fans everywhere that have missed watching the living fight the dead. However, it wasn’t the EPIC premiere that most fans were looking for.

We began back in the middle of the night at Woodbury; the mysterious town ran by the Governor. Badly wounded in one eye, the Governor decides to pit Daryl and Merle against each other in a fight to the death. During the fight, Rick and Maggie sneak back into town and attack the guards around the fight. Many shots and smoke grenades later, Daryl and Merle escape town with Rick and Maggie. However, some walkers find a hole in the walls in Woodbury and decide to look for a snack.

After escaping Woodbury thru the woods, Rick, Maggie, Daryl, and Merle make it back to where Michonne and Glen are waiting. Upon seeing Merle, Glen and Michonne are up in arms, ready to take him out. Rick is able to hold them down and then debate with Daryl the pros and cons of having Merle come back to the prison. Ultimately it is decided that there is no way that Merle can re-join the group. Daryl makes the tough decision to get some supplies and leave with his brother.

Meanwhile, in Woodbury the town is in revolt. The people cannot believe that so many lives were lost. The guards will not let them out of the town, and then a walker shows up and chomps on a couple townsfolk. The Governor then makes a quick appearance and leaves Andrea to calm the fears of the town.

Upon arrival at the prison, Rick meets the new group of people. He clearly states that they cannot trust anyone else who shows up at this point—and that they must leave. Hershel pulls Rick to the side and disagrees with his analysis. Hershel’s point is that they need all the help they can get, especially with a possible war with the Governor approaching. Rick is pondering this tough decision, until he sees a figure on the catwalk above him. The figure is his wife, Lori. However, it is an apparition. No one else can see anything up there. Rick begins to scream at her when Glen rushes the other group out of the prison for their own safety.

So, will Daryl return? Will the other group be admitted in? Will Rick go insane? What does the ghost of Lori want? Will the Governor come to seek revenge? What side will Andrea or Daryl take? There are a lot of questions to be answered this half of the season…tune in to AMC at 9:00PM EST on Sunday nights to find out!

Walking Dead Recap: Killer Within

Where do I even start? How do I make you, as a reader, comprehend my feelings for this episode? Bare with me… This is a tough post.

If you’re a weekly watcher of AMC’s The Walking Dead, you went into this episode with no idea of what would happen. All the previews showed was that walkers had entered the prison.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

At the beginning of the episode, we see Michonne inspecting the Governor’s vehicles that are riddled with bullet holes, and asking him some pretty hard hitting questions, but at the same time keeping her distance, she does not trust him. Andrea is not ready to leave Woodbury though, that is very clear, and it annoys Michonne.

Rick is ready for the group to start breaking ground outside the prison, clearing out the rest of the yard and burning the walker bodies. But things are never THAT easy, are they? Glenn and Maggie are busy occupying their time up in the guard tower “again” and Darryl and Carol find this funny.*sigh* I love Darryl and Carol, it’s the little things, right Delena fans? The two prisoners Axel (O’ Brother Where Art Thou looking prisoner) and Oscar (The other black guy) appear, and really piss Rick off. They’ve broken their promise to stay in their cell block. Axel pleads with Rick that they just can’t stay in there anymore with men that used to be their friends, and that they just want to be apart of their group. After the men discuss it, Rick is the final decision and he decides to lock them outside the prison gates where they’ll be safe, but still outside.

Hershel is tired of his bed rest, and with the help of crutches, his daughter, Carl and way-to-pregnant Lori, he insists they “take a walk”.

Everyone is out in the yard at this point, when they notice something is VERY wrong… there’s walkers, inside the prison walls!

WHAT?! Who could have let them in?!

Carl open fires, Hershel, limping on one leg, slaps a walker with his crutch and gimps up the stairs with his daughter to safety. Carol and T-dog are holding off the walkers on their own, when T-dog gets his shoulder bitten, Carol screams for T-dog to get inside.

Rick, Glenn, and Daryl are sprinting to the yard, unlocking all the gates as they go. Maggie, Lori and Carl run into the jail, as well, to try to escape.

Is everyone accounted for ,as of now?

Back in Woodbury, Andrea gives Merle a map to find Hershel’s farmhouse, so he can track Daryl. She say’s that if it was her sister she’d want to know. Merle tells Andrea that the Governors “a good man”. Oh okay…

Glenn finds that the prison gates have been cut with bolt cutter and Rick immediately blames Oscar and Axel,who are standing there.

Just when you’re feeling nervous enough for the group, the yard alarm sounds! NOOO! That will draw every walker for miles! Oscar states that he used to work at the jail and that someone must have fired up the back up generators. Rick grabs Oscar, leaving Axel with Glen, Daryl follows Rick. Rick shoves Oscar inside and makes him show them where the generator would be.

Meanwhile, Carol and T-dog are trying to navigate through a walker infested jail. There’s only one way through… T-dog is looking bad, he knows this is the end of the road for him. He looks at Carol and simply tells her that, “This is God’s plan” and runs head on into the walker crowd sacrificing himself for Carol to get by. It’s a brutally gory, sad scene.

RIP T-dog.

Lori, Carl and Maggie are still wandering around when Lori announces that she thinks the baby is coming. OH GOD! Carl leads his mom and Maggie into a safe place, the boiler room. Maggie tells Lori to lay down and take her pants off :/ and Carl looks on helplessly. Lori is standing pushing, when Maggie screams for her to stop…. there’s blood.

Back in Woodbury, I really hate it when we go back there… Merle asks the Governor if he can go look for his brother but the governor says he can’t risk it, the place would fall apart with Merle. Andrea has a drink with the governor and divulges to much information. (like always) The governor tells Andrea he lost his wife 18 months before the outbreak in an accident, leaving him with their daughter. The Governor reveals his name is Philip.

Rick, Daryl and Oscar finally enter the generator room…. Do we all remember the little black guy that Rick locked outside? Ya, he’s in the generator room, and ready to kick some serious behind! Rick’s gun goes flying, and it’s not looking good. That’s when Oscar picks up the gun, shoots the other inmate and hands Rick the gun. BOOM! Rick has just made a new best friend.

Lori is suffering by now, and tells Maggie that she has to cut her open. Maggie refuses, but Lori pleads saying, “My baby must survive for all of us.” Carl shares a quite moment with his mommy. Lori tells him, “My sweet boy, you’re the best thing I ever did, I love you.” Maggie takes Carl’s knife and cuts Lori open across her lower stomach. Lori screams and then nothing… Maggie fishes for the baby. After a few minutes of holding your breath, wondering if Maggie will have a hand, she pulls out the baby gives him a quick pat and it begins to cry. Maggie gets up with the baby and tells Carl that they have to get out of there and find the group. Maggie gives Carl a finale moment with his mother. Carl remembers the conversation his dad had with him about people he loves dying. Carl then, off screen, shoots his mother, he doesn’t want her to become a walker. Maggie gasps.

By this point I’m sobbing.

Rick, Daryl, and Oscar come barreling back into the prison yard. Daryl has Carol’s head scarf, they haven’t found a body but she’s missing. Hershel and his daughter are safe. Glen is still with Axel. Carl and Maggie holding a whimpering baby, come into the yard with the others. Rick asks where Lori is. Maggie shakes her head and sobs into Glen’s shoulder.

Rick looks at his son Carl’s blank expression and starts with the, “NO NO NO NO… LORIIII” he falls to the ground and begins to sob.

I’m ugly crying. Mascara and snot are everywhere.

Now that Lori is gone, I want her back. I’ll have no one to blame Carl’s bad behavior on. How can they so easily replace T-dog?! All I have to say, if they keep this killing spree up, and they kill Daryl, you’re going to have to find someone else to blog about this show.

Please share your respect for our fallen friends below. Comments, concerns, theories, they’re all appreciated.

The Walking Dead on AMC

Sunday kicked off The Walking Dead on AMC (not if you’re a DISH customer). Whether you watched it live on AMC, live streamed it on AMCtv.com, bought it on Amazon.com for $1.99, or just waited til it was on another form of media outlet; I pray your caught up by now! (The links take you to the episode)

If for some reason if you’re not…. SPOILERS AHEAD:

Our heroines are back for a third grueling season of the zombie apocalypse, that is The Walking Dead; and the season premiere did not disappoint. It was bloody, gory, suspenseful and Carl is finally doing what he’s told. Once again the group finds they’re more unsafe than ever; especially since they’ve left Hershel’s farm, and they’re more than tired. Lori is about to pop, we left season 2 with her flat stomach’d… so we’re guessing she sprouted over the summer. Carl is a dead aim shooter, and Rick is fighting to keep control. Andrea, since being left behind, has made a new friend and is fighting to stay alive.

Darrell and Carol are more than flirty… Carol’s outright blunt, I guess the end of the world will do that to you. Carl seems to have a little thing for Hershel’s youngest daughter, it’s rather sweet if you ask me. These “couples” give me something to root for in their doom filled world.

Rick begins to scout out a prison that has high fences and look-out towers and informs the group his grand idea of “taking the prison”. With the promise of shelter, potential food, medicine and ammunition, the group has no choice but to follow his lead. The group decides to, “take the prison” in hand-to-hand combat, as to not draw the attention of more walkers. They take the yard of the prison with ease, seeing as how everyone is a marksman, even Carl; and spend the night in the yard. Rick tells them that he understands they’re all tired but that they need to push just a little further to actually get into the prison. Lori asks to Rick to give the group a little rest, but we see that their relationship is just as tired and worn out. The next morning the group is met by zombie SWAT officers as they enter the prison and find them difficult to kill, but Maggie thinks like a woman and gets the job done. 😉

Once in the prison, they secure a cell block and bunk for the night, knowing full well they’ll have to handle the rest of the prisoners in the morning. At dawn, Rick leads the group of men and Maggie (who is becoming really B.A.) through the jail to see if they can find potential medicine and food, and to kill some of the inmate walkers. In a series of mishaps the group gets separated and a person gets munched on!

The group drags they’re buddy into the cafeteria and “handle” the situation. I’m not giving who it is or what they did away… you need to watch. In the cafeteria, the men and Maggie are met by a… group of living inmates. DUN. DUN. DUN.

I can’t help but love this series! It’s so well written, keeps me on the edge of my seat, and keeps me coming back each week. Stay tuned for next week….

Let me know what you thought of the episode below! Was it bloody enough for you? Do you think Lori is taking this “Shane” thing to far? How do you feel about Carol and Darrel?
