The Walking Dead Emofest

wd9

What was with the emo pub crawl on The Walking Dead? I was waiting for A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera to show up in the woods with a piano singing, Say Something.

Not that I didn’t enjoy an episode focused mostly on Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), oh yeah and what’s her name, Beth (Emily Kinney).

Between rich corpses, golf club brain bashing, moonshine, drinking games that didn’t end the way I remember, burning down your only shelter while walking into the woods giving the finger, and the impromptu therapy sessions where Beth is the stable one, I was both intrigued and confused. Not an unusual state for me, come to think of it.

Where’s Rick?

wd38Where’s Carl? (Well, we’re always asking that).

Where’s Maggie and Glen? (Will they ever meet again?)

Where are Tyreese, Carol, and the children?

Where’s Michonne? If everyone knows having zombie pets means you’re undetectable to other zombies, why doesn’t everyone in the apocalypse have zombie pets? And why does Michonne only do it sometimes?

Let’s hope next week is less teenage girl diary and more hey, there’s the rest of the cast!

Although I’m sure women (and some men) around the world let out a collective sigh when Daryl (Norman Reedus) started crying and Beth comforted him with the from-the-back-hug.

      1. Everyone on Twitter was saying “do not let them hook up”. In all caps. Over and over. Guess some people feel strongly about Daryl 🙂

      2. I think most Undeadheads always thought Daryl would hook up with Carol and Beth and Carl were getting chummy although I think he’s too young, but hey, it’s a zombie apocalypse, I’m sure the rules are different. 😉

      3. Carol is an enigma. She’s been through the abusive relationship even before the zombies, then losing her daughter. She really cares about the group, but she goes overboard in showing her caring, if you know what I mean. I feel for her, but she needs to stop being creepy.

  1. I do love this show. I mean really love it. But even I’ll have to admit, that the last episode was extremely weak, probably the weakest episode of this show till now.

    1. As you can tell by my numerous posts on The Walking Dead, I’m an Undeadhead, but this episode is really different. Maybe they figured absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or contractual obligations. Looking forward to next week – a lot of fog. 😉

    1. Did you see when Marilyn Manson was on, I thought Chris Hardwick was going to have a heart attack. Some guests are way better than others. I think Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, and Norman Reedus should be on every TD, but hey, that’s just me. Next week’s WD looks cool. Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

  2. Definitely better than two episodes devoted to the Governor. No other characters got their own episode, except for Rick in the pilot. Why were two episodes devoted to this guy? Especially when the first of the two was his droning, somber and bearded self half the time doing absolutely nothing. I think devoting two episodes to the Governor was the worse thing the show has done. Great actor, but the character got more annoying than perilous at a certain point, that’s my opinion anyway. I could go on and on about this show. But I won’t have a chance to see the most recent one until Thursday, so please don’t mention it if you respond lol

    1. I like the Gov, he knew how to liven things up, so sometimes deaden them I guess. I guess the show is experimenting, seeing what works and what doesn’t as they go. I won’t give you any spoilers, but it was something…I love WD too. 🙂

      1. Thanks for not spoiling! Yeah, don’t get me wrong, I did like the governor, but I still think two episodes… I guess I just wanted to see more of what was going on at the prison. Take care!
