The Walking Dead: Season 4, Episode 11 – “Claimed”

The Walking Dead: Claimed

This was a pretty tense episode.  I think Andrew Lincoln did some of his best acting in the scenes while trying to escape from the house.  No dialogue at all, just using his body.  Laying under the bed, shaking in fear.  I don’t know about you, that’s not something I can do without feeling that fear.  Obviously, we’re going to see that group of marauders again.  You don’t have Jeff Kober (China Beach, BTVS, Sons of Anarchy) come in to play the leader for one episode with no dialogue.

Now that Michonne has made a conscious decision to truly live in this world, it’s nice to see her open up.  When she told Carl that her child wasn’t a secret, she meant it.  Up until now, she just couldn’t talk about him.  I like the relationship that’s developing between Michonne and Carl.  They seem to be softening each other up.  Sometimes having a friend will do that.

I’m glad to see that Glenn isn’t giving up on finding Maggie.  Abraham gave a pretty convincing speech about saving the world but Glenn is determined.

How can that Eugene guy have made it this far without knowing how to operate a gun?  Frankly, the way he handled that situation was odd to me.  Why wouldn’t he have just yelled “Walkers!” to get everyone’s attention?  Maybe he purposely disabled the truck, but why?  I got a slightly detached vibe off of him as well.  Possibly he has Asperger’s?  Not that I think that’s something that would be addressed on the show.

The Walking Dead: Season 4, Episode 10 – “Inmates”

The Walking Dead: Inmates

I totally called it.  Tyreese didn’t know about Carol and, of course, that’s who he meets up with.  It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this.  As far as I remember, Daryl, Maggie and Rick are the only ones who know what Carol did.  Depending on how long it takes for the rest of the group to catch up with them, Tyreese may become pretty attached to Carol.  That “Oh, shit!” look on Carol’s face when Tyreese ran up to hug her was priceless.

Lizzie is a psycho!  She killed those bunnies for no reason.  If she’d told Tyreese, that would have been different because they could have eaten them.  She also would have killed Judith if Carol hadn’t shown up.  I still think she might have been the one feeding rats to the walkers.

If Beth hadn’t been with him, I think Daryl would have completely reverted back to pre-family Daryl.  Beth had been the one who said she couldn’t take any more death but I think it’s Daryl.  I can see him cracking.  Hope they find the others soon.

Bob seems pretty happy.  I think it’s because he’s an addict.  He’s an alcoholic and had been sober but when things were relatively calm at the prison, he wanted to start drinking again.  I think the adrenalin rush he gets when things are chaotic takes the place of the alcohol for him.

Poor Maggie and Glenn!  I didn’t see Glenn get off the bus I guess.  He’s just lucky.  What killed everyone on the bus?  Did one of them succumb to the illness?  I thought that they were all better, Glenn seemed to be the worst one and he’s fine now.  Did one of them get bit?  Even so, you’d think some of them would have been able to get off the bus.  Maggie thinks she’s lost everyone.

I haven’t read the comics yet but know enough about them to know who the new people are.  Can’t wait to see what the show does with them.

The Walking Dead: Season 4, Episode 9 – “After”

The Walking Dead: After

I was glad that my question about what happened to Hershel’s head was answered, but I was sad to see him as a walker.

I understand that Michonne’s first pets were docile because she’d had them for a while and they were weak from hunger (I doubt she fed them) but what about her new pets?  Even though she cut off their arms and jaws, they wouldn’t know the difference.  Why didn’t they keep lunging for her?  Also, if just having the two walkers on leashes kept her masked from the other walkers, couldn’t a person quietly walk amongst a herd?

Carl’s a little shit.  I realized he was really mad at Rick but he was walking way too far ahead of him.  Rick could barely stand, if a walker came up from behind, Rick could have been bitten or dead before Carl got to him.  I think it was good for Carl to get all his anger and frustration out, he seemed to come to a realization about the fact that he still needs his father.

I half expected Rick to die.  While I know it wouldn’t have gone along with the comics, it wouldn’t be the first time the show has deviated from them.  It could have been really interesting to see what Carl would do without Rick.  I’m glad he didn’t though.

If I had eaten that much pudding (especially chocolate) on an empty stomach, I would have been throwing up everywhere.  Yuck!

Michonne totally has Carl’s shoe, right?  Why else would her appearance be so funny?  Or the door for Carl?

Can’t wait to see what everyone else is up to next week.
