I’ve been alone with you inside myyyyy mind……..
Holla, Deadheads! [patting myself on the back cause I'm totally the first person who ever thought to call TWD fans that…GO WITH IT]. Welcome to the half-season finale of The Walking Dead!
Previously: When last we left our fearless (if occasionally dense) leader, he and his band of merry men were about to lay siege on Stepford-esque Woodbury. Glenn and Maggie gave up the prison’s location, but not for lack of trying. The only person who remained footloose and fancy free was Andrea, living it up in sexy undies and getting her jollies on with a crazed megalomaniac.
The cold open features a decrepit walker (as opposed to your standard non-decrepit walker).
“Miss March” in the 2012-2013 (what year is this set in anyways?) Pin-Up Calendar
Miss March is killed by a man who is smartly dressed in a woolen cap and sleeveless t-shirt. Miss March, we hardly knew ye. We are rapid-fire introduced to several new characters. It feels like one of those speed dating things where you talk to the people for five minutes and move on. I know this from The 40-Year Old Virgin, not personal experience. Moving on….
The newbies are a group of two guys and two gals. Unfortunately, their only weapons seem to be a shovel and a hammer. Interesting because the Rickettes find entire arsenals complete with bottomless pits of ammo at seemingly every turn.
Anyway, these new peeps are discussing a building they think they saw over yonder. The prison? Woodbury? Before they have much time to discuss, New Gal 1 is bitten by a walker and will henceforth be known as Zombie Appetizer Gal. The menfolk want to keep dragging her along to their destination. New Gal 2 is the only one with a clue, saying Zombie Appetizer Gal will slow them down and just end up trying to eat their brains anyway. I’m inclined to agree.
Woolen Skihat Guy – sorry, it’s hard to remember names when you’re speed dating – leads them to the large building. They take Zombie App Gal with them (idiotic) as they enter via a large hole in the back of the building. Sorry, probably not the best euphemism to use when discussing prison matters.
[Side Note: It seems like this is an angle of the prison we haven’t seen before, correct? Also, did the credits change again as well? Even the music seems more frantic and crazed than before. If so, I’m diggin’ it. If not, I guess I need to pay closer attention, but still diggin’ it.]
Now, back to Zombie App Gal. Maybe I’m biased because we’ve already established I’ll be among the first to go in a zombie apocalypse, so I won’t need to concern myself with such matters. But why are they insisting on dragging her along when they KNOW what’s going to happen?! I don’t think people should lose their humanity entirely and end up like the governor. But seriously, am I the only one who think people need to stop being polite and start getting real?
