Oh it is HIGH, you guys. Why? BECAUSE. The direction is now indefinite. Before everyone knew a few things: Sophia needed to be found. That was the true north. Having that definition meant that Glen and Maggie could hook up, that Shane could be functionally psychotic and Lori could be pissed about a litany of things. But now? Chaos theory. There’s a bunch of dead zombies in front of a barn, everyone fired their weapons, OUR PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF. It’s just a very angsty situation all around.
One of Herschel’s family (daughter? niece?) goes to purvey the dead for some strange reason. Always a great idea by the way. Let’s go sort through the minefield of dead zombies. I’m sure all the amateur shooters nailed every single one of them in the head. BUT WAIT YOU GUYS! They did NOT and one ripe looking lady zombie guns for the throat.It takes an entire village to raise a baby AND to remove the zombies rotten hands from the girl’s neck. T Bone / Dawg even stomps on her face but she’s like “LOL, Didn’t hurt because you are the worst at zombie apocalypses.” Finally Andrea has to step in with a heavy contender for zombie kill of the week with some kind of farm tool to the head.
How Many Stupid Faces Did Carl Make?
Oh, like a trillion. Especially when he was talking to Lori about how good it was to waylay all the dead zombies in the barn.
He was all like, “I know this is going to sound like I’m becoming a cold human in response to all the horror in the world, but I’m glad I just watched our former family and friends all get faces full of bullets. They DESERVED it because if you don’t start none, there won’t BE none and they definitely started some. If my face didn’t look so stupid all the time, I would have done it all myself.”
The State of Shane’s Soul
It’s breaking badly. Shane believes that the barn massacre was justified and it kind of was. He didn’t need to celebrate it like he did and put it on his Facebook wall, but it needed doing. HOWEVER, Shane is overlooking the importance of community in a world filled by walkers.
Clearly, he is working himself into a lather about opposing Rick on everything and methinks that there will be a confrontation sooner rather than later with Rick and this probably won’t end well for Shane.
But luckily for Shane, he did come away with a consolation prize.
There were some heavy contenders, but Shane is far and away the best. Why? Because he kills the zombies AND burns them and the only help he gets is from Andrea picking up torn off arms and T-Bone/Dawg, whom we know is useless because he can’t even walk through a parking lot without getting his arm ripped open.
Later, Shane stomps off to go “do whut needs a doin” and notices Dale leering at him like a pedophile from the back of a Dodge Stratus. This leads to Shane getting pissed because of all the judgment Dale is heaping on him with his crazy eyes.
Status of Dale’s Wild Eyes
Glen and Maggie have more of a DTR and I’m worried that this is going to be another half-season storyline that drags on. Should they be together? Shouldn’t they? Maybe? Then, the same girl who tried to loot the dead zombies from the barn passes out, probably out of boredom from Glen and Maggie’s conversation.
“Ok. Rick and Glen just told me that.”
“Ok. Well see you back there.”Also, I could be wrong, but did Herschel have ice in his drink? And why does Rick still carry his walkie?
Lori decides to go for a drive to fetch Rick (seriously am I missing the need for a 3rd retriever?) and while driving she sees a stray walker, which pisses her off so she hits it. Not really, she accidentally hits it, but after doing so, she speeds up and flips her car ending up in a ditch, which you can be sure, pisses her off, but not too bad because she did get ZOMBIE KILL OF THE WEEK from it…
Rick and the crew drink with the strangers. The strangers want to join up but Rick says no. Soon, we can feel the malevolence rising and Rick, even though he’s in a cross fire, wastes BOTH of the yankees.
