In regards to all of those people that are complaining about the recent Walking Dead episodes, here are my thoughts on the subject: “Many Walking Dead fans have been complaining about the most recent episodes of the series. They complain about Glenn, how or if he died. They complain about a 90 minute “Morgan” story, they complain about it being a soap opera-ish episode last night, and they complain that they want to see action, blood, guts, and walkers in every scene.(the complainers are usually men, but some women agree too). Although the excitement of walkers is great, the most important part and idea of the the show is the HUMAN aspect, the loves, hates, disagreements and drama are what make this show.The family, and that’s what our group is, a family, although from many different backgrounds and races, they are what we all want to be, family. Too complain is really not worth it. It is an enigma to the human race, trying to live through the worst thing that could ever happen. To see them all evolve into the strongest humans they can be and work together to get through it all is amazing. People will die, that’s a no-brainer, bad things will happen, some good things too. It shows humanity at its finest and it’s worst. It’s scary, touching, and brilliant . It shows the strengths of them all pulling and working together, and what happens when they don’t. It would be grand to know that people could work like this in real life and bond together to get things done. It is the psychology of the Walking Dead that pulls us all in and makes us love the characters so much! We hate, we love, we cry for the lost ones, we mourn. We are them and they are us…human!” OK! Rant over…
Well I know there are some of you out there, that are totally disappointed in tonight’s episode. You didn’t get to find out anything about Glenn. Well, all I can say is get over it. We will see him again, but not yet. This episode was a kind of calming effect for me. At least I know that Rick made it back, with his hand, LOL, and although there are hundreds of walkers surrounding the community, we at least, are back within the walls.
Deanna kind of stole the show tonight. As she is looking over the walls of her town, she overhears Michonne talking to Maggie about Glenn not returning, and that there was no signal from him. She hears yelling and see that Rick is running for the gate, with hundreds of walkers, right behind him. We see her, looking bedraggled and almost shocky, but there is a strength there within her.Rick gets in, then he explains all that has happened with their walker horde plan. The others will return, but they must all remain quiet.
Spencer had me worried, but I think he will be alright. He toots his own horn when faced with members of the community trying to storm the pantry and take all the food. They have to be careful. They have to ration. Spencer talks a little sense into them and they decide to leave what they wanted. He mentioned that he, himself, saved the town from the truck that would have crashed through the wall. Yes he did do that, but could have done so much more when the Wolves attacked. I think he knows his shortcomings now, although he tried to bury them in a bottle before his mother caught him. He blames his mother for everything. His father’s death, his brother’s death, the Wolves, and the current lack of safety of their town. But she showed her strength then and he is better for it.
We are still missing our favorites from the group. Abe, Sasha and Daryl are still out there. There has been no radio contact with them and everyone is worried. I think Rick knows that some of them are still alive, but others aren’t so sure. Their are people who are writing the names of dead and missing, on the inside wall of town. Glenn’s name is on there. The town is surrounded by walkers that got loose from the main horde. The people of Alexandria are just now coming to grips with what life is like now. They haven’t seen this, they are scared, and rightly so. Some try to blame Rick, (as usual), but there are those that stick up for him and the group and Aaron is one of them.
Aaron steps up and takes the blame, as he tells others that it was his fault, that the Wolves found Alexandria. It breaks my heart to think he is feeling so guilty over this. It was the entire community that failed in keeping Alexandria safe. He notices that townies are painting the names of the missing and dead on the walls inside town. Glenn’s name is there. He knows what he has to do. When he finds Maggie, he knows that she is planning to sneak out to find him. He tries to discourage her. He tells her he is going with her and shows her some old sewers that they can go through. When they do head off to the sewers, things go from bad to worse, when they are attacked by a couple of very slimy and gross sewer walkers. Aaron gets hit in the head with a metal ladder and we almost see Maggie get hurt until Aaron finally kills it. When they get to the gate of the sewer that leads out. Maggie stops Aaron from opening it. She is heartbreaking so badly over Glenn. She confides in Aaron, and tells him all of her fears and about her pregnancy, “I burned his last picture because I said I wasn’t gonna need it anymore, because I was never going to be away from him again, I’m pregnant”. This tore me up! That is why Glenn made her stay within the walls, in the first episode.(I knew this). He is shocked. Now wait and see, but this will bring these two characters much closer together. I predict that he will be a (sort of) protector to her now.
Not all of the residents are happy and calm. Jesse’s son, Sam, is still refusing to come downstairs, even for cookies. Her older son, Ron, is concerned, along with Carl, that Enid is missing. The two teenagers, try and fight about it, as Carl insists that they go looking for her. The fight is wimpy at best and Ron tells Carl “I’ll tell your dad” ! Testosterone laden silliness! Denise is trying to be a doctor, but she thinks she is failing. She can’t seem to help a infected leg wound and is studying the books. Tara tries to give her confidence. I think this will be a thing here. Tara and Denise. After figuring out what to do for the wounded man”s leg, she feels better and approaches Tara on the steps and leans down and kisses her. Tara is alright with it.There is another kissy moment, when Rick goes to Jesse to discuss the dead bodies that need to be buried. He wants to wait to make sure all the others will return. He specifically keeps mentioning Glenn. Is this foreshadowing about Glenn’s fate? She asks if there is something more to this life, and he tenderly kisses her.
Jesse hears a noise and sees movement in a house. When she investigates, she finds a woman walker, who has apparently cut her wrists. Could this be Betsy, David’s wife? Some say it is. She quickly opens the door, and with a stab to the head, dispatches her. Jesse has grown in strength and will become a formidable force in this season.
Ron decides to approach Rick and tattle on Carl. He tells Rick all that occurred and that Carl didn’t go out to look for Enid. He wants something from Rick. Now I just don’t trust this kid. He hates Carl, thinks Enid is his girlfriend and still is harboring hatred for Rick, for killing his father. As looks at the horde of walkers outside the fence, he asks Rick if he can still teach him to shoot. Rick empties a pistol and shows Ron how to target. Will this be a bad thing? I think that this scene has to do with something bad that occurs later in the series. Just take note that I said it.
Deanna is out in the dark, returning some stolen items to the pantry, when she is attacked by a walker. She fights, she cusses and she takes a broken bottle to the creep, repeatedly stabbing him. Rick finds her and stabs the walker in the head. Deanna asks him if her dreams were, “pie in the sky”, he replies, “no” He tells her that they all need her but she says no, they need him. Has she relinquished Alexandria to him? as the last scene closes, we see Deanna walking the fence. She is angry that this place is no longer safe. She bangs on the fence in frustration, as walkers groan behind it. As she walks away, there is blood squeezing through the mesh fence. Who’s is it? Are the walkers pushing so hard that they are squishing each other, or is it a more dire reason?
