THE WALKING DEAD Post Mortem – Sick
While Maggie is desperately clinging onto her humanity, Rick is having zero problems shedding his to get the job done. Lori may be right about Rick not having the malice in his heart, but he didn’t seem to have too much of a problem putting a machete through that one guy’s head. I was secretly dreading that this guy was going to become the new Shane: a character that keeps challenging and pushing Rick over the course of several episodes until he finally has to end up killing the guy. I was not looking forward to that story arc, and lucky for me, the writers were smart and killed him off before the end of the episode. I don’t believe these were evil actions on Rick’s part; Rick saw another Shane budding right before his eyes as well, and did what he thought was necessary. Morality has become a fluid thing in this new brave new world. There are no more laws to keep people in line, and it’s funny that these prisoners, who at one point in their lives broke said laws, are having the hardest time accepting that the world they knew, the world they couldn’t function in to begin with, is gone. Another pretty fantastic episode…. keep it up Walking Dead. Keep it up.
P.S. Who (or what) was spying on Carol as she practiced her surgery skills on a zombie corpse? Feel free to speculate in the comments below, but try to keep super specific spoilers from the comic to a minimum please. Also, The closing shot of Lori alone on the pedway was killer. That is all.
This week’s horror movie recommendation is…..Creepshow
