Do you think that Glenn's rage would have got him killed? Or would he have been smart to eliminate his enemy by hitting him in his sleep?
In remembrance of Axel...
I don't know if anyone else liked Axel as much as I did, but I'm sure gonna miss that guy. Pretty much every time he opened his furry little mouth, something memorable came out.
I also liked when he told his origin story about how he robbed a convenience store with a water pistol and he hid out at his brother's house. I bet his brother looked like Dale Gribble from "King of the Hill".
Poor Axel. He and Carol really seemed to be hitting it off, too. After he got shot in the head, Carol at least gave him a consolation prize by spooning with his corpse.
The architecture of aggression
The Governor's attack on the prison involves some guy dressed up in a ninja costume hauling ass through the gates in the truck from the Coal Chamber album cover. Then they release a bunch of zombies out of the back.
Well I don't think that was such an awesome plan. All the people inside the prison are already used to killing zombies pretty easily, so it's more of just a nuisance. If they really wanted to cause trouble they should have taped guns to the zombies hands or put more soldiers in the back of the truck.
Meet the new extra
There seemed to be some new extras in this episode standing on the wall in Woodbury. None of them really did anything notable except for this woman named Karen who had a flame war with Andrea. Andrea is like "Where is Martinez?" And then Karen is like "???" And Andrea is like "SMFH".
Well Karen is this actress named Melissa Ponzio. She is a hotty and she was born in New York in 1972. She did a bunch of commercials and some TV shows. She was in a movie called "Road Trip: Beer Pong". Her character is probably going to die in a violent manner soon.
I should take this moment to give credit to The Walking Dead Wiki. They do a really great job of identifying new cast members as soon as they show up and keeping an encyclopedic database of The Walking Dead. They should have called it WalkingDeadia though.
Did you notice?
- That creek where the family was stranded on the bridge was called Yellow Jacket Creek.
- Maggie's gun was shaking around like she was the shakiest gun in the west, but she somehow sniped off that sharpshooter up in the guard tower. While I'm at it, who was that guy and how did he get up there?
- One of the cars had a decal that just said "NATIVE".
- That commercial break thing said this: Norman Reedus on which TWD character he would like to be stuck with in an actual zombie apocalypse:
"I think it would be Rick, not just because I have an obvious crush on the actor who plays him. Rick is confident and he's well-mannered and he truly cares. If not Rick it would be Glenn. I base both of these answers on the actors, perhaps more than the roles they are playing, but I'd go with those two."
Man these things are really dumb. And why are they always hassling Norman Reedus to do them? Is he being punished? Again, I'd rather see the top ten zombie vidya games of all time, or the top ten most violent Cannibal Corpse song titles, or something other than this.
- The scene where Glenn talks to Maggie with the sun glinting over his shoulder looks like it could have been a cell from the comic book.
- Daryl seems to have only two arrows that he reuses over and over.
- Daryl accuses Merle of abandoning him when they were kids because their dad (step dad?) was beating both of them.
- Daryl has a sick Glenn Danzig tat on his back.
- Axel has a sick tat of two tumbling dice on his neck.
Did you know?
- Years before he became an actor, Lew Temple (Axel) was MVP of his college baseball team (Rollins College) and a scout for the Houston Astros. (Thanks "Talking Dead"!)
- The Governor's assualt rifle was a Steyr AUG 5.56mm. (Thanks AMC Story Sync!)
Governor: "I thought this place would be something else, something better … I wasn't up to the challenge and I screwed it up. I've done some terrible things. I'm not fit to lead these people."
