Hey, TWD-ers! Before I begin coverage of episode 205, let’s recap the last couple episodes to get ourselves up to speed…
Two weeks ago: Rick and Lori’s son Carl was saved from his gunshot wounds, and the group decided to resume the search for the missing Sophia.
One week ago: And by “resume”, I mean “put off another week”. Whoops. Sorry, I thought the plot moved forward, but I forgot. My bad.
In sum: if you still feel like you need brushing up before this week’s #205, feel free to go back and read my recap for #203.
We open the week with a flashback, to a highway that’s completely jammed with traffic. Cars and cars and cars. Shane, Lori, and Carl are together in one of the cars, so so chronologically this must be taking place around the time Wildfire first hit, and everyone is trying to make it to that refugee camp in Atlanta.
So they’re still holding out hope at this point.
In the car ahead of them are Ed, Carol, and Sophia. It looks like this is how they met, in the traffic snarl. And it looks like the two “families” (I use that term loosely with Lori and Shane) are starting to become friends. Carol notices Carl is hungry and offers him an MRE. Ed happens to be very well prepared for the zombiepocalypse and has stocked up on food.
But Ed slams the car door. He doesn’t want to share. And he isn’t happy Carol told Lori about the existence of the MRE’s in the first place. This is a violation of what Ed calls “operational security”. In other words, when the shit hits the fan, start hoarding resources, and DO NOT tell anyone else you have them.
“They all laughed at me when I panicked and bought all these survival supplies the day Obama was elected, but WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?!”
Back in their vehicle, Shane is trying to use the radio to find out the cause of the traffic jam, but the Atlanta refugee camp has stopped broadcasting. Then, a formation of helicopters flies overhead towards the city. Not good. His next option is to get out of the car and try to get a vantage point to learn what’s going on. Lori joins him, and they head off the road into the woods.
And another thing: back at Ed and Carol’s car, Sophia refers to Shane as Carl’s father and Carl corrects her. His real father, Rick, is dead. So, we know now that Lori and Shane tidied up the story for the kid quite a bit.
Back in the woods, those helicopters approach the city and suddenly the city starts to explode. The military is napalming the streets because of Teh Zombiez.
THERE goes the hope
Why are they showing us this scene? Because the refugee camp, and thus any hope they had of salvation, has just gone up in smoke. This is the exact moment when Shane realized he had to become Lori and Carl’s protector/father figure/hunter-gatherer, etc. There is no one else.
And as we’ll see in a bit, he still hasn’t quite abandoned that role, even after Rick has returned.
Oh, is Atlanta unlucky our what? Have any of our other cities burned down so many times?
THE GREENE’S FARM—TEAM RICK’S CAMP
Then Lori wakes up in her tent with a start. Was this flashback actually Lori’s dream?
But she quickly sets it aside because she realizes she’s slept in. Everyone else has gone about their daily chores without her. She hurries out of the tent to join Carol at the clothesline to hang laundry.
Carol tells Lori about an idea she’s had. She’d like Lori to help her cook a large meal for Dr Greene’s people, to say thanks for all the hospitality. Lori likes it, but Carol would actually prefer if Lori asked the Greenes’ permission on her behalf. Carol thinks this is proper because she considers Lori the “First Lady” of Team Rick.
Specifically, Lori is the Jackie Kennedy of the group, if Jackie responded to JFK’s death by banging LBJ and having his baby
On to the main plot of the episode. Last week Rick and Shane were not physically able to search for Sophia. But a day has passed, (or maybe a couple hours), and now they can methodically search the countryside. Rick and Shane gather all the menfolk except Glenn and map out where they’re going to look.
But first, a newcomer joins them and offers to help. His name is “Jimmy”. I say “newcomer” not because he’s new to the characters, but because he’s new to us. Jimmy is the boyfriend of Dr. Greene’s younger daughter Beth and apparently he’s been hanging around the farm for the past four episodes and we’ve never seen him once.
Maybe Jimmy’s just been sleeping in the entire time. Teenagers! It’s just like in the comic strip Zits!
Rick learns Jimmy is seventeen and briefly wonders whether he should let another kid join him in a manhunt in the woods, but Jimmy assures him Dr. Greene said it was OK.
In sum, the plan is this: Their starting point is that abandoned house Daryl found last week, the one with signs of recent inhabitation. Rick and Shane will pair up and search one section of the grid they’ve mapped out; T-Dog and Jimmy will take another; and Daryl will ride out alone on a horse to survey the forest from a higher vantage point.
It’s time to get going, but before they do, T-Dog warns Daryl to be careful in case he runs into any chupacabras. He’s teasing him. Previously Daryl told T-Dog a story about the time he swears he saw a chupacabra in these woods, and it’s clear Daryl still very much believes this. Everyone else laughs at the idea of Daryl believing in a well-known hoax, but Daryl retorts that it’s no less crazy for there to be fucking zombies roaming the earth. They shut up.
And finally, before everyone departs, Jimmy tries to take a shotgun for himself but Rick and Shane overrule him. They’d probably prefer not to get another child killed, I guess.
THE GREENE’S HOUSE
Over at the house Glenn is sitting on the porch fiddling with the guitar Dale found on the road a couple episodes back.
Wait, how the hell did he get out of search duty?
“You guys go ahead and search. I can take care of all the ‘holding an instrument I don’t know how to play’ chores”
Maggie joins him. Things are pretty tense between them after last week’s spur-of-the-moment hook up. And to cut through the tension, Glenn asks her point-blank if she’d like another go-round. Slick.
Maggie, like a normal person, responds with some humor, and teases him about being a premature ejaculator, but when she sees Glenn is serious, she flees the scene because she honestly has no idea what she wants to do with him.
Shane and Rick are in full search mode now. Shane nails a red scarf onto a tree, which is how they’re all indicating to each other than an area has been searched.
They’re walking along in silence, so for a conversation starter Rick tries to get Shane to reminisce about some Dairy Queen waitress he used to bang back in high school. Rick knows from experience that this is pretty much the only topic Shane’s guaranteed to talk about. Shane knows he’s being manipulated, but he doesn’t really mind and goes right ahead with remembering. (And the writers didn’t really give his character any details about this person to conjure up, so it’s handled in this awkward way where Shane’s only remembering her internally while Rick just stands there).
All this talk about women Shane has fucked has prompted Shane to tell Rick about a SECRET lover…but don’t worry, it’s not Lori. Unbeknownst to Rick, back in high school Shane was also banging their 30-year-old PE coach. (Female).
“Wow, you’re really good at having illicit affairs that are wrong on so many levels. Good thing you’re my friend and I can totally trust you,” Rick might as well have said
Then, for some fun, Shane turns the tables on Rick and asks him about his OWN love life in high school, knowing perfectly well that Rick didn’t have one. Rick didn’t even know what the bases were back then.
But then Shane switches gears. He doesn’t want to talk about his sexcapades any more because he thinks revisiting memories from the pre-zombiepocalypse days is a bad idea. For one thing, they make him feel old because nearly all the people in his stories are dead.
And for another, in Shane’s mind nostalgia like a drug that prevents you from being focused on reality, and in a survival scenario that’s dangerous. Uh, sure.
Actually, all this talk about personal weakness clouding judgement brings Shane to what he’d really like to talk about: he disagrees with Rick’s decision to prolong the search for Sophia, and right here he lets him know it. Shane actually has a pretty convincing case…not only is the increasingly desperate search delaying them from getting to Fort Benning, but it’s also putting everyone in danger because pretty much every day someone has a brush with death.
We’ve kinda heard this discussion before, and Rick doesn’t have anything new to add. He just reiterates the position he’s had the whole time, which is, what Shane calls softness is what Rick calls moral obligation. Sophia trusted him and Rick wants to live up to that.
It looks like a stalemate, but then Shane spots a blue rag nailed to a tree. This is Andrea and T-Dog’s marker. Rick and Shane have been searching redundantly. More time is being wasted.
THE WOODS, ELSEWHERE
Then it’s over to Daryl. He shoots a squirrel with an arrow, pinning it to a tree. Who needs MRE’s?
Then Daryl reaches the ridge that provides him with a vantage point. The ridge overlooks another section of the creek, and down in the water Daryl spots something suspicious. He gingerly makes his way down the steep hill and walks up to the object. It’s Sophia’s doll. It’s a clue, and not an encouraging one. He calls out her name but doesn’t get an answer.
Finished, Daryl climbs back up the hill to the horse and re-mounts to continue searching. Some ominous music pipes in. We get some POV-style shots from the bushes. Is something stalking Daryl?
Is it a chupacabra?!
There’s no chupacabra. But there is a rattlesnake on the forest floor. Like a total douche, Daryl’s horse freaks and bucks him off. He goes tumbling down the hill, all the way down to the creek, and lands hard.
Daryl tries to shake off the impact of the fall. But he’s lying in a couple inches of water, and blood starts to spread. He landed on his arrow.
Well hello, severed spine-punctured kidney
In real life, Daryl just died twice, from the fall and from the arrow, but since he’s a TV character he actually looks to be in pretty good shape. He staggers out of the water and cuts off the sleeves of his shirt to make a tourniquet for his torso.
That was the one shirt Daryl owned that still had sleeves on it. Wah-wahhh
That done, he looks upward and sees about a 200-foot sheer rock cliff between him and the trail to the Greenes’farm. He finds a sturdy tree limb to use as a brace and is about to begin the long climb, but then he hears something rustling in the bushes. Oh, shit. He reaches for his crossbow, but surprise, he lost it in the fall.
So he hurries back into the water and uses the tree limb to find it. Whatever that thing in the bushes was seems to have wandered away. Which is good, because Daryl’s only remaining arrow is in his body.
And now he can begin the climb for real.
THE GREENES’ FARM—TEAM RICK’S CAMP
Back at the farm, Glenn is hanging around the camp when Lori comes walking by with a bucket of water. He goes to follow after her, but before he can even open his mouth Lori has predicted that he wants to ask about the pregnancy test, and she cuts him off. But Glenn is undeterred and asks her straight out if she’s pregnant, and when she doesn’t deny it, he knows the truth.
But nothing more can be said at the moment because just now Rick and Shane come walking up the path. I guess they’ve stopped arguing over whether to continue the search or not.
Who is a worse debater, Rick Grimes or Rick Perry? Maybe all people named “Rick” are terrible debaters, I don’t know
Lori shoos Glenn away as Rick arrives. She can tell something is wrong with her husband and asks him what’s up, and Rick tells her about the conversation he had with Shane earlier. Even though Rick DOES still believe it’s worth looking for Sophia, Shane’s argument has obviously taken root and Rick’s starting to doubt himself. Maybe he really IS being soft, like Shane says. Maybe he needs to make colder and more calculating decisions.
But Lori backs him up. In her eyes, Rick is doing the best he can with the information he has. To her, it’s actually a sign of weakness to abandon Sophia, because that’s the path of least resistance. Maybe Rick’s not such a bad leader after all.
Then, Dr. Greene’s daughter Beth interrupts them. Dr. Greene would like to speak with Rick.
Daryl is on the side of a steep cliff when his tree limb slips out of his hands. Now there’s nothing for him to prop himself up besides his two bare hands. He’s hanging on by some tree roots—
Actually, know what? Here’s a shot of how high off the ground he is right now. This will give you a sense of how far Daryl’s about to fall for a second time:
This will be Real Life-Daryl’s third death of the episode, but TV Daryl will be OK
And yeah, the roots give way. Down he goes again.
THE GREENE’S FARM
Dr. Greene is pouring gas into a generator when Rick approaches to see what he wants. Dr. Greene is not happy…it turns out, Daryl didn’t actually have permission to take the horse. Nor did Rick have permission to bring Jimmy along on the search with them. Clearly Jimmy was lying when he told Rick Dr. Greene OK-ed it earlier.
Rick tries to smooth things over and suggests that maybe they have a communication problem, but the real problem is that Team Rick has worn out their welcome.
Dr. Greene is only allowing them to stay on his property until Carl is healthy and Sophia is recovered…maybe now he’s going to tell Rick what Shane just said, that maybe Rick should consider giving up the search. But for now, Dr. Greene just warns Rick to keep his people in line, while Dr. Greene does the same with his own people.
BACK IN THE WOODS
After the fall Daryl has been knocked unconscious. He’s lying by the side of the creek. Square one. One more time and Daryl is officially Sisyphus.
And just to make the experience even MORE medieval and fucked up, who should appear but Merle?
Is it really him? Nope.
How do I know? Because the real Merle wouldn’t be hanging around in the woods, he’d be back at that pharmacy from last week looking for meth ingredients
I miss Breaking Bad.
Anyway, the Merle-llucination starts off by accusing Daryl of being a layabout, knowing full well Daryl has an arrow in his side. Then it criticizes Daryl for not removing the arrow from his body, since that would make it easier to dress the wound.
It’s a power dynamic thing. The Merle-llucination (well, technically, Daryl’s subconscious) thinks Daryl is at fault for this current situation, simply because Daryl isn’t being a real man.
Only a bitch-ass immune system would let E.Coli fuck with it
Merle did everything he could to teach Daryl to be a man and this is where he ended up? Then the Merle-llucination asks Daryl why he’s out in the woods in the first place. Daryl tells it about Sophia, but that’s not a good enough reason. Because, if Daryl is so eager to find Sophia, why wasn’t he this eager to find MERLE? Merle is BLOOD, and Daryl is now actively helping the people who sold Merle out.
Daryl claims he and Rick did right by Merle because they did in fact return to the city to rescue him, but the Merle-llucination doesn’t accept that. He reminds Daryl how he had to saw off his goddamn hand to escape. Daryl tries to get a look at the stump, but his vision inconveniently goes blurry.
What the Merle-llucination really wants to know is, has Daryl has let himself become Rick’s bitch? He reminds Daryl how he’s an outsider among Team Rick, which is a collection of “pansy asses, niggers, and Democrats.”
Well, Dale’s probably a libertarian, but who’s counting?
The Merle-llucination suggests that the rest of the group has a low opinion of his little brother. Team Rick laughs at Daryl behind his back for his red-neckery
(And to be fair, everyone WAS just laughing at Daryl for believing in the chupacabra).
But above all, Team Rick is not Daryl’s kin. Rick DID screwed Merle. The Merle-llucination wants Daryl to make that right. It orders him to shoot Rick in the face the first chance he gets.
But before he can do any face shooting, Daryl has to find a way back to the farm. The Merle-llucination tries to drag him to his feet. Wait, how can an apparition physically move a real person?
It’s also a zombie.
Boy, that zombie waited a really long time to break up Daryl’s conversation with the Merle-llucination. Maybe it was being polite.
Now the adrenalin kicks in and Daryl is awake. He wrestles with the zombie for a bit before kicking it off him and stabbing it in the face with the tree limb, killing it. But another wanders out of the trees for him to deal with.
And here’s when things get really gnarly. Daryl is out of crossbow ammo, so he needs to pull the arrow OUT OF HIS BODY so he can load it and shoot the zombie. He starts yanking, and slowly and agonizingly the arrow eases out. He quickly loads it into the crossbow, and just as the zombie is about to jump on him he shoots it in the face.
So he’s safe. But the question remains, did the Merle-llucination’s request take hold? Will Daryl DO ITS BIDDING?
You know, I really hope that Daryl’s head injury is permanent every week it and causes him to hallucinate someone new who tells him to do stuff. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
Look, Daryl, Lynrd Skynrd wants you to torture a bunch of livestock!
Well, I guess Daryl IS gonna do its bidding. After the break, he re-wraps the bandage around his torso. And then we get a “Daryl is going crazy” montage without any music.
That squirrel he shot earlier? He devours it raw.
Fuck YOU, rabies!
Then, he saws the goddamn ears off the zombies and makes a necklace out of them. I guess Daryl’s favorite movie is Full Metal Jacket
Now it’s time to try to climb back up the hill. With his strength restored, Daryl starts kicking ass. But he gets alllllmost all the way up, within reach of the top, before his strength gives out and he finds himself hanging by some roots again. Vultures circle above.
And who should appear AGAIN but the Merle-llucination. Taunting him.
But this time Daryl is alert and able to push back. He accuses the Merle-llucination of not being a very good older brother brother. Merle likes to talk himself up as the only person in the world who looked out for Daryl but Daryl knows the truth…Merle didn’t do nearly as much as he could have.
Daryl now has the resolve to make it over the top. The Merle-llucination keeps taunting, telling him to “take off yer high heels and climb, boy!” But finally Daryl pulls himself up, barely.
He stands atop the ridge in triumph but the Merle-llucination is gone. And that’s just how Daryl prefers it.
THE GREENE’S HOUSE
You’re probably really enjoying the Daryl story, but the show still has to move that “will Glenn and Maggie or won’t they” story along. Sorry guys.
Back up at the farm, Dr. Greene comes into the and sees Lori and Carol cooking in HIS kitchen. He didn’t know there was a feast planned and he doesn’t like it—even though they’re doing something nice for him. He stops Maggie and, needing someone to fume at, tells her not to get too comfortable with Team Rick because they won’t be around forever.
Then the good doctor asks her what’s going on between her and “the Asian boy”, i.e. Glenn.
You know, I really do try not to just do a million jokes about southerners and rednecks here, but you’re REALLY not making it easy for me, TWD
Maggie chafes. She’s 22 years old, thank you very much, and she doesn’t need her (racist) father poking his nose into her business like he does with her sister Beth, who is 16.
Hear that? It’s the last doubts Maggie had about fucking Glenn again flying right out the window. Great job, pappy.
CAMP TEAM RICK
Outside, Dale notices Andrea is sitting atop the RV keeping watch with his rifle. He teases her for the “Annie Oakley” routine. (Women! With guns!) But Andrea was just sick of doing laundry and needed a change of routine.
INSIDE THE RV
Inside the RV, Dale finds Glenn reading one of his books. But what Glenn really wants is some man-to-man advice…and specifically, does Dale think all the women in the camp are on the rag together. Since, you know, women synch up with their periods and such
Dale pretty much just laughs at Glenn and asks to hear his reasoning. Glenn’s exhibits A—C: Lori is acting cagey, Maggie not immediately fucking him again, and Andrea being a woman with a gun
And when Dale hears that Glenn has been putting the wood to their host’s daughter, he’s horrified. If it’s the zombiepocalypse and someone with food, medical supplies, and shelter opens up his home to you ,it’s generally a bad idea to take liberties with his daughter also.
Dale wants to know how Glenn could be so stupid, but Glenn’s response actually throws him off a little: because they could all die tomorrow, is why.
Andrea sits in the beach chair looking pretty pleased to be on guard duty when she spies a walker emerge from the woods a couple hundred yards away. Or, it LOOKS like a zombie:
That’s the sunlight interfering with her binoculars, not the shitty resolution of my screengrabs
We all know it’s Daryl. To be fair, he IS limping similar to how a zombie would stagger, but otherwise Andrea is about to screw the pooch badly
She calls out a warning to everyone else and offers to shoot it, but Rick reminds her of Dr. Greene’s no firearms policy. Shane and T-Dog grab weapons and run towards Daryl, thinking they’re about to kill a zombie. Rick tries to stop them because—and this is important—Dr. Greene has asked them to let HIM deal with all the zombies that come onto the property. But they don’t listen, and he reluctantly grabs his pistol and runs after them
As the guys approach Daryl, Andrea decides enough is enough. She picks up the rifle and draws a bead on Daryl, who’s still partially obscured by the brightness. And when Dale tells her not to shoot, that’s the last straw. She pulls the trigger.
The guys reach Daryl, and because Daryl’s in really rough shape they can’t immediately tell if he’s still himself or if he’s been zombiefied, but when Daryl speaks, they lower their weapons. And that’s when Andrea’s bullet hits Daryl and puts him down.
And Real Life Daryl dies once more…
But once again, Daryl survives. The bullet only grazed his temple, you see.
He’s barely coherent now, and the guys carry him into the house. As they make their way across the field they notice two disturbing signs: one, Sophia’s doll hanging from his belt.
“What the hell does that mean?”
And two, the zombie ears hanging from his necklace.
“Oh crap, Daryl likes Full Metal Jacket, which is like the worst Vietnam movie ever”
Back at the house Dr. Greene comes running out to see what the commotion is. He does not look happy.
Which I wouldn’t be, either. Even if you overlook all the liberties Team Rick has taken lately, there’s still the fact that every time you try to get rid of them, they keep requiring medical attention.
He sourly stitches up Daryl’s arrow wound while Daryl explains the doll situation to Rick and Shane…like we saw earlier, Daryl found the doll down in the creek without any other sign of Sophia. All it really tells them is that she may have been in that area at some point. It doesn’t really indicate whether she’s still alive.
Dr. Greene interrupts to ask Daryl where his horse went, but in Daryl’s opinion they’re well rid of the damn thing because it got scared of a stupid snake. Dr. Greene shoots back that if Daryl had ASKED to borrow it, he would have learned that that horse is naturally skittish and he could have taken another one.
As if that wasn’t awesome enough to watch, Dr. Greene then openly wonders how the hell Team Rick has survived this long. Ha!
OUTSIDE THE BEDROOM
Like we saw earlier, it looked like Shane was starting to convince Rick to abandon the search for Sophia, and now, out in the hallway, he needles Rick about it again. Earlier Shane said that searching the woods is extremely dangerous. Daryl’s injuries only prove his point.
Rick is sick of listening to him, so he just storms off, leaving Lori and Shane alone. With the Rick avenue closed, Shane turns to Lori to try to convince her instead. Does SHE think Team Rick should still be looking for Sophia?
Lori stands by her man once again. In her mind, Rick is being the strong one, not Shane. Pulling up stakes and abandoning the girl is the easy way out. And really, Shane’s no stranger to taking the easy way out. Just ask Otis.
And finally, Shane reveals his real motivation for wanting to abandon the search. He DOES really believe they should be headed for Fort Benning…but that’s only because he wants to keep Lori and Carl safe.
So it looks like Shane hasn’t really relinquished the protector role he took on when they witnessed Atlanta burn. Lori tries to process what the hell that means.
Andrea sits alone on the steps, looking like she feels pretty shitty for, you know, almost killing Daryl.
Dale finds her and has a seat beside her. He tries to reassure her. She shouldn’t be too hard on herself for the Daryl thing. And it looks like she appreciates what he’s saying. Are they finally getting over their dispute?
Actually no, you should be hard on yourself. I don’t care if Daryl wants you to be nice to him again
INSIDE THE HOUSE
Back inside, Carl is asleep. Lori is sitting next to him, sobbing, and wondering what she’s going to do about her plight. Carol appears in the doorway to tell her dinner is ready, and Lori tries to hide her tears. Did Carol notice?
THE DINING ROOM
Now it’s time for the meal Lori and Carol cooked for everyone. But after the day’s events, no one is feeling very sociable and they all just eat in silence.
I’m happy to see that after the total collapse of civilization people are still using the kids’ table.
Glenn decides to try to break the ice, so he asks if anyone knows how to play guitar. He doesn’t and he’d like to put the Dale found to good use.
And Dr. Greene mutters that Otis was a pretty good guitar player. Silence again.
After that, Maggie slips Glenn a note, along with a pencil. The note asks him where he’d like to meet up tonight for another hookup. It looks like Dr. Greene saw it but Maggie doesn’t seem to give a shit. Glenn (not) surreptitiously write down his preferred location and passes it back.
When we last saw Daryl…well, actually, he was getting emergency surgery. When we saw him BEFORE then, he was feeling pretty resentful towards the other members of Team Rick for all the perceived slights. Does he still feel that way?
Now he’s lying in bed recovering and Carol brings him some food. After all he’s done to find Sophia she’s feeling very appreciative and gives him a kiss on the head. And then she thanks him. Daryl’s already done more for Sophia than her own father ever did.
So it looks like Daryl is about to reconsider, and thus a potential Daryl-versus-the group storyline is thwarted.
After dinner, Maggie finds some privacy and opens the note to see what Glenn wrote. It says: “Ever done it in a hayloft?”
THE GREENE’S BARN
Now, if you haven’t read the comment, maybe you didn’t see this coming…remember a few episodes ago when Dr. Greene wouldn’t let Rick pitch camp close to his barn? Yeah, there’s a reason why. And Glenn is about to unwittingly stumble upon it.
It’s night, and he’s walking out to the barn to wait for Maggie. The barn door is padlocked so he has to climb up a ladder straight into the hayloft. Maggie sprints out of the house after him.
And hey, the barn stinks inside. That’s WEIRD. Glenn hears some suspicious noises, and wouldn’t you know it, the barn is full of zombies.
The zombies aren’t in the hayloft itself though, so maybe Glenn can still get some after all
Finally Maggie catches up. It’s too late, and the jig is up.
There ya go. I’m gonna keep this part short…
-Soooooo, a barn full of zombies. What’s up with that? Give me your theories in the comments!
Here’s mine: Dr. Greene isn’t trying to find a cure to the virus, nor is he sequestering the zombies who used to be people he knew in the hopes that there would be a cure some day. I think Dr. Greene is trying to give them religion. He is trying to save their zombie-souls.
-Did anyone else fucking cheer out loud when Dr. Greene wondered aloud in the hell Team Rick survived so long?
-Even though they played it totally straight, I thought the whole Daryl sequence was fucking hilarious. Chupacabras AND hallucinations? Amazing. Why do you think they picked a chupacabra as the crytpozoological animal for him to believe in, though? Doesn’t he seem morel like a Sasquatch guy?
-If you’re wondering how Daryl died four times in one episode yet still survived, I think I know the answer: karma balances out. Specifically, with this kid.
-And finally, I was listening to an old Savage Love podcast today and one caller had a problem with a neighbor…basically, the caller and her husband had an open relationship and the caller decided to fuck her neighbor. After a while, she broke things off, but the neighbor refused to take no for an answer. Reminded me of Shane quite a bit.
That’s all for me. Thanks for reading!
