Over in Walker Killing School, our boys teach the prisoners how to go for the head and keep in a tight formation. Big Tiny is weirded out by the whole thing, so he backs up out of the room only to come across some rogue walkers. He gets a few, but then freaks out when he’s touched by a gnarly zombie wrist, so Sr. Badass comes charging in and shoots the walker in true badass form – he has the gun held sideways. Ask any true marksman and you’ll hear 100% that if you turn the gun sideways, you’re an idiot.
Well ain’t that a bitch.
Now we learn why Carol is Dr. Carol. Hershel has taught her as much as he could. Carol asks Glenn if he can go somewhere with her, but he says that Rick asked him to stay. Maggie seems to understand why this is and tells him it’s OK to go.
Big Tiny has been scratched with wrist bone and while Big Tiny begs to not be put down, Sr. Badass wails on him with a pickaxe. Too bad. Big Tiny was the only prisoner I liked. This is also further proof that, no matter what, you can’t have a horror movie/show keep black people around as main characters. They either have to die or be relegated to 4 speaking lines per season. Shameful. You know, it’s George Romero’s fault. He started it all with Night of the Living Dead.
Sorry. Romero made me do it.
Turns out Dr. Carol wants to practice her medicine on walkers. Her biggest deal is learning how to safely deliver OO’s baby without killing OO or the baby. By the looks of that fake belly OO is sporting, she could just let go of the bottom of it and the baby will fall out. Easy peasy.
Zombie Killing School is still in session. Sr. Badass tries is damnedest to kill Rick, but that’s not happening. New Bad Rick splits Sr. Badass’s skull with his machete and turns to kill the other two unfortunate remaining black guys, because horror is synonymous with racist. The smaller guy gets up and runs, so Rick gives chase. The dude finds himself in a yard full of walkers, so Rick closes the gate on him. Wow. New Rick is COLD! I just hope he’ll be as cold to OO. Maybe he’ll let her give birth and then cut off her head. I can dream, can’t I?
Maggie sits with Hershel until his unfortunate dying breath. His girls cry over him and Carl and OO come running in to see what’s the matter. OO rushes to administer CPR and suddenly Hershel grabs her face while everyone screams! Can it be true? Can my most recent wish be granted? Nope, no dice. He lets go and comes back to life, not at all a zombie.
