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.
