I hope you guys enjoyed this weeks Fanart, let me know what else you’d like to see. Have a fantastic Friday!

The Walking Dead: Try

So this episode was… interesting. I didn’t properly know what to expect going into this episode. I actually expected, and hoped, that someone was going to die. I really, really, really, want Nicholas, Gabriel, and Pete to die. (In that order) So the fact that all three survived the episode surprised me. First off I’d like to address the fact that the ‘W’ group is getting worse and worse. They tied up a woman while she was still alive and let her get her guts ripped out before letting her turn. I’m still waiting to see where that goes.

Secondly, Nicholas you and your lying hide need to get bit. I want Carol to tie him to a tree and let him get eaten. Also, Deana, get it together. You said you knew how to read people and know when they were lying. So why are you wasting time on his pathetic lie? You know he did it, kill him. You’re whole exile clause is bull. Also, you knew that Pete was beating Jessie but because he was a surgeon you let it go? No. Just because the world went to hell in a hand basket doesn’t mean he has the right to abuse her. Her freaking child shouldn’t have a bolt on the inside of his closet or think he needs a gun to protect his mother. That’s not his job. You need to do be better Deanna. Exile is bull. If Pete finds a group, say the ‘W’ group, and manages to convince them not to kill him he can come back with a vengeance and take Alexandria. Their way of life is dead. Move on.

Sasha needs to get herself together. Stop putting your life in danger and making the people who love you and care about you worry. You think they haven’t suffered? That they haven’t lost people? Michonne lost Andrea, her boyfriend, and her baby boy. Rick lost his wife and his best friend. Abraham lost his wife and his children. Glenn lost Dale. Carol lost her daughter. Daryl lost his brother. Tara lost her father, sister, and niece. Maggie lost her stepmother, stepbrother, father, and sister. You aren’t the only one who’s lost people. Grieve, deal, and move on. Stop pushing people away. They’re not going anywhere.

Thirdly, Rick have ya lost your mind? Moving on from Lori is one thing. That’s good. But moving in on a married woman who is in an abusive relationship that you just met is stupid. You don’t know these people, you don’t trust them, so why are you trying to hook up with this woman? Seriously boy you have problems. Also, I want Pete to die. I agree he needs to die, but you went about it a stupid way. Not only that but you lost your mind for a moment there at the end. You were acting like that time you and Tyreese went at it when Karen and David were burned.

I also would like top point out that when the fight made it’s way into the street that Pete backhanded Jessie when she tried to intervene while Rick just pushed Carl away when he tried to intervene. Not only that, but when the fight broke out Jessie and Pete’s son ran to Carol. Carol. He ran to her and hid behind her for protection. He doesn’t trust his mother to be able to protect him from his dad. He doesn’t think his own mother can protect him so he runs to the woman who threatened to tie him to a tree should he tell anyone about what he saw her do. That says something.

As a last side note, I’d also like to say that the preview for next week’s episode was amazing. Pete didn’t flinch or nothing when he went up against Rick but when Carol put a knife to his throat he cowered. He cowered in fear when she told him that she would kill him and no one would question it because he’s already proven that he’s not opposed to hitting a woman. This is why Carol lied and sneaked around. This is what we’ve been waiting for.

Anyways, that’s all I got time for today. I hope you guys enjoyed. I also apologize for not posting the last couple of days. Life got busy and projects and papers were all due at the same time so I got a bit behind. But yeah, have a great day!

The Walking Dead: Forget

*WARNING SPOILER ALERT*

This was an interesting episode. I really liked the interaction between Daryl and Aaron and the conversation the two had in the woods. I liked it because Aaron knew what Daryl’s personal problem with Alexandria was. He knew because he felt the same way when he arrived. Aaron is gay man with a partner and while the people may not have directly meant to offend him or thought they were saying it in a joking manner the barbs still hurt, Not only that but he isn’t blind, I’m sure he saw the looks some people gave them. He knows what they think of them. Just like Daryl knows what they think of them. He know that they see him as redneck trash and that he’s more of a wild stray than an actual human being. That’s why I liked the conversation the two had. Aaron shot straight with him and it paid off.

When Carol was caught by Jessie’s boy I was mildly concerned for her, but then she gave him her cookies or death speech and I was like, “Holy crap! Things just got real people!” I think offering cookies is the new ‘look at the flowers’. I mean holy crap she was down right scary. I mean if he puts the group in danger, yeah kill him. I just hadn’t expected her to actually be that good at being scary.

Rick and Jessie. I still ship Michonne and Rick and I will ship it to the end but I also know what role Jessie plays in this because of the comics. I do and I don’t like Jessie for reasons that will be revealed later. Now as for her husband… kill him. Just kill him. He’s wholesale trouble with a healthy helping of jackass. If you stuck around for next week’s preview there’s a few things you should note.

One, the man is a drinker. He was standing there drinking from a bottle of something and obviously he wasn’t on top of his game but the fact that he was drinking that alone and made a good dent into it without being on the floor says something. Also, he was drinking in front of God and everybody. He didn’t care who saw. Secondly, the way he was talking about Rick bringing his kids over to see him cos he was a doctor. The way he said it creeped me out. Not only that but when he was talking to Rick about ‘being friends’ was just as menacing. Rick knows it too, he knows something’s up with that dude.

I liked the fact that Daryl took a chance on Aaron and Eric. He actually sat down and had dinner with them. Now, Daryl’s table manners are less than desirable but it’s been a while since he’s had to sit at an actual dinner table and eat like a civilized human being. The spaghetti also made me think of Herschel’s Spaghetti Tuesday joke, and that hurt my feels. I really liked Aaron giving him the bike too. That means something to Daryl and he knows it. I liked the fact that he offered him a position too and that he acknowledged the fact that Daryl can tell good people from bad people. This is evidenced to the viewers back in season 2 when Dale confronted Daryl about Shane and Daryl told him right off that bat that he knew Shane killed Otis because he came back with the man’s gun.

I really feel bad for Sasha. She’s still struggling from losing her brother and Bob for that matter. She’s lost so much already and being out there kept her going and kept her mind busy. Now that they have down time she’s left with her thoughts and the nightmares.

I’m really curious about if that was a ‘W’ or an ‘M’. It’s more than likely a “W” and there are some theories floating around about who it can be. Now, in The Talking Dead they addressed this. Kevin Smith of Comic Book Men mentioned something about the ‘wolves’. I hadn’t caught this, and in fact I had to look it up, but in the episode where the group goes to Noah’s camp and it had be violently ransacked, spray painted around the town were the words “Wolves not far”. 

Now, in the comics there isn’t a group called Wolves but this could be the writers trying to throw viewers off the scent and that this is actually a cover name for one of the other two groups: DC Scavengers and the Saviors. People seem to be leaning more towards the Saviors because the brutality of the walker kills and carving them up sounds like something the Saviors would do.

There’s a more far fetched theory that it’s another group called the Whisperers but they’re a more recent addition so it’s unlikely. It’s possible but unlikely. But, it should be addressed that the Whisperers cut off walker faces and wear them as masks so they can walk among the dead unseen. Marking a ‘W’ on the walkers head could indicate to other members of the group that it’s actually a walker and not one of their people. I didn’t come up with this theory but it’s a good theory! Also, in Clear season 3 when we meet Morgan for the second time he’s ranting about “People wearing dead people’s faces.” Is this foreshadowing or just a coincidence. Perhaps he wasn’t as crazy as we initially thought.

Well that’s all I got for this review. What did you guys think of last night’s episode? Who do you think is marking the walkers with a ‘W’?

The Walking Dead: Remember

*WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD*

Okay so this was a nice episode, we were able to relax a bit. No one died, and we were introduced to some a new, and important, characters. It was strange to see out characters in a clean and in a closed in environment again. It felt foreign to see Rick clean shaven, Carl playing video games with other kids, and to see Carol in a sweater. And from the looks of things it felt foreign to them as well.

Obviously Daryl isn’t comfortable here, and who can blame him? In this type of society in the normal world would look down on him. They would look at him as redneck trash and scum, they’d shy away from his rough exterior and gruff manner. This society hasn’t been too affected by the outbreak. They haven’t had to face the harsh trials that our characters have. They’re fresh and untrained while ours are seasoned and hardened.

Deana was smart to record all of the meetings, having a copy of everyone’s interviews and having it as evidence of what peoples stated intentions were is good. I also think she realizes Rick’s ability as a leader, that he commands a certain level of respect. He and his group are very knowledgeable about how to survive in this world. This group’s ignorance about how to deal with the outside world was shown with the scene where the group was making a run.

When Aiden and his friend were talking about how they got a hold of some really sweet weapons for this run and pulled out a couple of measly pistols it was obvious that they were not cut out for this. Glenn, Tara, and Noah all had that “seriously?” look. and then how they handled the walker. That was a very Governor-esque type of move. Frankly it was sick and creepy. Tara almost got bit because of these fools. I love the fact that Glenn could have taken Aiden but chose to back down, until he threw the first punch. Aiden needed a wake up call. I also really enjoyed how quickly Daryl pounced on the other dude. After Rick pulled him off, he stalked around behind him like a caged wild cat. He’s tense, he isn’t comfortable here, and he feels like these people are a threat to his family.

Family, I cannot stress enough how much I loved the scene where they have two houses but they all chose to sleep in one together. They all slept in the living room together on the floor and had the windows covered with a guard. I especially loved it when Deana came by and saw them all and talked about how despite the odds that all these people from different backgrounds with different personalities could come together and be a tight, trusting family. I loved how as she said this the camera panned across each member of the group, showing us this family of misfits.

It was interesting to see the interviews spread throughout the episode as well. Not only that, but Carols interview was both creepy and brilliant. It was weird to see her play herself down as the weak woman from before, how awkwardly she handled the gun, and to hear her talk about how she missed cooking for her husband and stuff. But at the same time you know she isn’t weak and that she hated Ed. She’s making herself seem like someone that you don’t half to worry about, that she’s just a weak woman instead of a lethal killer.

We also met Jessie, her son, and her husband Pete. For those of you who don’t know they’re all from the comics. And for those of you who have read the comics, you know what’s coming when it comes to this family. Now I won’t spoil it or anything but I’m intrigued to see how true to the comics they stay when it comes to this part. Also, this episode was the first time Lori was mentioned in a long time. It was weird, strange even, to think about her. Even though it’s only been about a season and a half since we last saw her.

I’m really excited to see where they go with this and can’t wait for next week’s episode. But what did you guys think about this week’s episode?

The Walking Dead: Them (messing with my feels again)

While this episode wasn’t as painful as the last one it still hurt. We had to watch our favorite characters deal with the pain and suffering they’ve been facing. Maggie had to gain the will the will to live again, Sasha had to let go of her anger and stop pushing others away, and Daryl had to feel the pain, let himself grieve and not keep it bottled inside.

It was nice to see that despite what all Eugene has done and what all he’s put the members of the group through, especially Abraham, that they still care enough to not let him drink the potentially dangerous water. I think that the fact that Abraham was the one who knocked the bottle out of his hands really says something too. It’s a subtle way of telling the audience that things are okay now between them.

The scene in the barn when they’re around the campfire was great. I loved it when Rick saif “We are the walking dead” made me so freaking happy because it’s in the comics.

Then when the walkers attacked and the storm was raging on outside and one by one each member joined Daryl in barricading the door. Words weren’t even needed and the symbolism was wonderful. Each of them going through this inner storm and none of them being able to handle it on their own. They have to come together and rely on one another to be able to withstand the storm and make it through to the other side.

Lastly, there’s Aaron (the guys who shows up at the end and says he wants to talk to Rick) who I looked up his name on IMDb. At this point in the show, after everything that’s happened, and all that we’ve been through… kill him. For the love of all that is holy, KILL HIM. Nothing good can come from meeting this guy! Kill him and run like the devil is behind you because that’s probably what’s going to be chasing them.

*Sigh* This show is going to be the death of me. Anyways, I look forward to next weeks episode and can’t wait to see what they through at us next.

What did you guys think of this newcomer?
