Well, dear fans of TWD, there you have it … or not. Season 6 has left us hanging, and hang we will for the next seven months. I knew it was coming, though I tried to think of every reason why they would avoid a cliffhanger. I mean, seven months is a really long time to hide such a huge secret … isn’t it? Well, maybe not — the character who died doesn’t even know he or she is dead. Well played. Doesn’t mean I’m not pissed – okay, I’m not totally pissed. I can spend the next seven months hoping … Continue reading
So, my fellow TWD fans … it’s coming. The end of Season 6. I’m not excited about it based on what I’ve read — which is a ton because I’m trying desperately to find some kind of consolation. But there is ZERO. And why would there be? AMC wants us to flip out until next season. Jerks. (I mean that in the most loving way. Sort of.) Tonight’s penultimate episode, “East,” starts with Carol. Tobin comes in while she’s planning her exodus, and they have sexy time. We don’t see it, which is just fine with me. Her bags are … Continue reading
Well, TWD fans, we’ve almost reached the end of the season, and Alexandria is again in recovery. Pantry stocking. Flowers growing. The stuff that happens in regular life minus walkers and a-holes. Catch your breath now. Mayhem isn’t far away. Even in the lull, there is a general raised awareness. Eugene seems anxious to step up. He’s growing a pair right along with that mullet. Father Gabe is focused and armed. Morgan plays with his stick. In another moment and another place, Morgan slides the last brick of his super prison into place. This is the tireless project he began … Continue reading
So, Walking Dead fans, Season 6 is making me crazy! If you’re anything like me, you’re losing your sh-t. Just remember, we’re in this together! We’re all in … The Same Boat. Alrighty! Onward. Before they can go to the aid of Rick and the rest, Carol and Maggie are captured by a redhead (Paula) and her little posse. Neganites. Prior to the hostage situation, Carol shoots one in the arm (Donnie). She clearly could have blown his head off, but she doesn’t. Now is not the time to gain a conscience, Carol. Get Morgan outta your head. Carol and Maggie are quickly surrounded. … Continue reading
… or When Life Gives you Zombies, Make Pink Cookies. The pantry may be bare, Walking Dead fans, but Carol’s baking prowess knows no bounds. Alexandria needs cookies, and cookies they shall have! With a little foraging and ingenuity, she puts Betty Crocker to shame and delivers her acorn and beet wares to those awaiting the return of Rick and the rest. The RV pulls up, and Rick informs Sasha and Aaron that they have procured enough provisions to stock the pantry for a month. This is the good news. Next, he asks that a meeting in the church be arranged. … Continue reading
Oh, fans of The Walking Dead … as if things weren’t weird enough already… So, faithful fans of the zombie soap opera, another week has come to pass … or several weeks, based on the amount of time it takes to develop an actual photograph of one-eyed Carl holding Judith. Seriously. Where’d I missed the Walgreens photo center — and when was the last time anyone loaded actual film into a camera to take a picture? Maybe Alexandria’s new plans included a dark room. I don’t know, but Boston’s playing as the episode opens, so maybe this all happened pre-digital. So, … Continue reading
Holy crap! The Walking Dead Season 6 returned tonight … and with a BANG and a lot of bloodshed! When we were slapped with the much-hated season break, Sasha, Abraham and Daryl (aka RAWR!) were faced with a group of motorcycling Negan-minions. I don’t know about you, but I have NOT been looking forward to Negan’s arrival. It’s inevitable, but I still don’t want it … being grounded for having parties while my parents were up north was inevitable, too. I hate the inevitable. Anyway! Negan’s unnamed chimp … which I will call him because of his ginormous ears and my … Continue reading
The Walking Dead Season 6 returns Sunday, February 14 at 9/8CT on AMC You picked a fine time to show up, Lucille! OK, so we’ve yet to see The Walking Dead comic’s infamous barbed-wire baseball bat and its equally insidious owner, Negan (welcome, Jeffrey Dean Morgan!). But we know the pair is out there, courtesy of a sneak peek of Daryl, Sasha and Abraham encountering a contingent of Negan’s acolytes — a.k.a. the Saviors — which aired just after the midseason finale. Atop it, Deanna’s dead, the wall’s kaput and Morgan just had to let that Wolf get away with poor Dr. … Continue reading
We all hate these midseason breaks, so Start to Finish is the crappiest title ever … even if it mirrors Deanna’s words. I don’t care. Especially with the little Negan teaser tossed in during Into the Badlands. I will spend the next two months vibrating through The Walking Dead withdrawals. Thanks, AMC! This midseason finale is like most season finales — a lot of craziness and zero resolution. But, I’m going to chalk this one up as the worst – or the best – or both. We all know the wall went down and an ass-load of walkers are on their … Continue reading
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched the most recent episode of The Walking Dead and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading now. Ah, TWD! This season has been one hell of a ride so far, and now that we’re quickly approaching the dreaded mid-season break, we should expect nothing but more stuff that will leave us in agony until February. To the conspiracy theorists who believed Glenn survived the dumpster disaster, cheers! If you guessed the bloody innards were being torn from Nicholas and not Glenn, you are correct! For those who were certain Glenn made it … Continue reading
