So, we have a total of 5 prisoners who are alive and living in the kitchen. When they learn that Hershel has been bitten, their initial reaction is to shoot him, but my darling Daryl has them all in his crossbow sights. While Maggie, Glenn, and Rick haul Hershel up on a food cart, T-Dogg continues to get the camera time he’s been waiting for by opening the doors and nailing the riot gear walkers leaving behind the dumbfounded prisoners.
Suddenly, Carol becomes a trauma expert. I guess being the caretaker has allowed her to learn a lot. Hands-on is the best way to learn. They’ve used up all of their medical supplies, so all Carol wants are so towels or linens. I want some fire. Cauterize that stump!
Daryl and T-Dogg are hanging back to keep an eye on the living prisoners. Looks like the guy I thought was the skeeve is not the skeeve. Thank God. It’s actually the dude who has his face peeled off in Devil’s Rejects. One of the prisoners is a HUGE guy who thinks the main Vato is stupid to think they should hole up at the place they were committed to for so many years against their will. He wants to get out and another guy wants to go find his lady. T-Dogg finally gets some speaking lines…er…line.
Back off, bud. I only get two lines per episode. See the brains and blood on this shield? That’s from the last guy who tried to step on my lines.
Rick goes to check on the situation and tells Glenn he needs to stay behind with Hershel in case something happens.
The main prisoner wants to know why they don’t just take their injured guy to the hospital and now it all comes together. They’ve been locked in the cafeteria for 10 months since a riot broke out. Rick clues them in on the reality of the world now. Big Dude and another guy start to realize that maybe there are families to go back to. They ask for a phone to use. Sorry, guys. This is the zombie apocalypse – no phones.
Main Vato doesn’t believe that probably half the population has been wiped out, so Rick lets them go see for themselves. I really think they need to befriend Big Dude. You can always use a giant man when faced with zombie fist fights.
Now we are introduced to a pissing contest between two prisoners and our guys about who owned the prison first. Main Vato thinks the survivors are pussies because they aren’t criminals, so they ought to be able to take out at least as many walkers. Big Dude, being not only larger, but smarter, asks how they’re supposed to do that with a single revolver.
Dr. Carol is still working on Hershel while everyone’s favorite future Maury paternity test guest questions her. Carol tells her, jokingly, that she looks disgusting, but I think there must be some truth to that. I would mean it if I’d said it.
Oh my God. You really are hideous!
