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.

American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 11: “Protect the Coven”

AHS: Coven: Protect the Coven

Why, exactly, did Queenie even go back to the coven?  She really seems to strongly dislike or outright hate everybody there.  She was mean to Cordelia who has done nothing but be nice to her.

Where was Misty?  Everyone else’s powers have been getting stronger, hers should too.  She should have been able to get out of that crypt by now.

I was pretty disappointed in the turn with Delphine.  I think I mentioned in another post that I thought it was an interesting puzzle as to who was more awful Delphine or Marie and how 200 years could change someone.  I know a lot of people were upset that the show seemed to be softening a truly horrible person, but this is a fictional version of Madame LaLaurie.  This episode completely ruined that.  What was the point of trying to make her sympathetic if this was going to be the end result?  Why not make her horrible all the time?

I knew when I saw the description for this episode that Cordelia was going to get rid of those eyes somehow.  Yuck!

Spalding has a real “doll” now but, being a ghost, will he be able to care for it properly?  I hope it doesn’t starve to death.

All the young witches suddenly having powers they didn’t before is getting a little old.  I thought the whole point of the next Supreme was that one witch would become more powerful.

I don’t have much hope of Kyle and Zoe getting away unscathed.
