The Walking Dead Spoiler Bomb:
E Online ^ | March 8, 2013 | Leslie Gornstein

The Walking Dead Spoiler Bomb: Odd Pairings and Rising Tensions Are On the Way!

The return of The Walking Dead hasn't been a disappointment for fans: The show has (wisely) dialed down on the pointless yelling, and replaced it with masterful twists, subtle character development, and, of course, lots of zombies.

Will we get an all-out war between the prison group and Woodbury? Too soon to tell. But in the meantime, the tension is building, and this next episode ratchets it up significantly.

Here's what to expect:

first 1-5051-65 next last
Heavy Is the Head, Yadda Yadda: A few weeks ago, Andrea (Laurie Holden) made a decision that essentially set the stage for the rest of the season. On Sunday, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) makes an equally weighty choice, one that just might cost the lives of the people he loves most.

Merle May Get Kinda Likable for a Second: Maybe. Sorta. Just a little.

A Scrum Goes Down in the Prison: But it doesn't involve the people you might think!

The Storm's A-Comin': By now it's pretty obvious that some kind of reckoning is on its way this season. But not every face-off starts with a skewered messenger or burning flag. Instead, look for some dark humor this episode, featuring two members of the show's, er, scientific community.

star of the show with out a doubt and I kind of like his brother too.

Andrea is boring, the Gov needs to go and the black sulky woman has to go, her moody looks are too much for this family

So far almost all the humor in the show has come from Merle.

The creatures sucking the life out of others, the stealing of goods from one group by another, the lack of real government, only those with weapons are going to survive and everyone knows it......

So to escape the above reality, I watch the Walking Dead.

In a show about zombies and killing you complain about "looks". (eye roll)

OOOOOo Thank you so much for giving my Darryl fix for the night. Just 1 more day and 9 hours to go until the next episode.

Eventhough I read that Actor Norman Reedus who portrays Darryl is a liberal who was against Mittens, Rove and others. Not sure he is against Republicans or just Rhinos lol. Anyway by looking at the picture...he is forgiven =).

It’s one of the things you have to overlook to make it work.

Just like you have to overlook that sometimes they all run and move very fast, and sometimes a herd runs really slow. Based on the storyline at the moment.

Just like you have to overlook the biology that reanimated bodies chemically decomposing have great strength and aren’t falling apart when they grab things or pull things or try to bite down on things.

Just like you have to overlook the fact how a dead body has any energy transfer at the cellular level to keep going when the blood is gone and the flesh is dead.

Just like you have to overlook they are all infected and the infection is somehow kept at bay while you’re alive, even injured, but for some reason a non-lethal zombie bite or scratch is enough to trip the infection over enough to kill you and turn you. But inhaling the fumes and particles of a burning zombie pile you’re burning up doesn’t apparently do anything to you.

Big holes? Big enough. But still entertaining for the most part. I hope that doesn’t go away.

Zombies are magical. If you can accept them walking around you should be able to swallow that they never quite finish decaying.

What bothers me is that the survivors don’t wear body armor. A leather jacket, even, would cut the odds of you being eaten considerably. And that’s the main threat from, zombies, isn’t it: that they’re biters. They can poison food and water supplies, I guess, or cause structures to fall on your head, and generally get in the way. But the eating is the main thing.

Speaking of infection, what about before they knew everyone was doomed to zombiedom? Whenever I saw Daryl, for instance, pull an arrow out of a dead guy’s head and pop it back in his quiver I thought to myself, “Hey, aren’t you gonna soak that in bleach first, or something?”

Honestly, any half-way intelligent person would have no real difficulty surviving to old age in that environment. There would be plenty of food, ammo, water, and medicine left. Building defensible structures (against zombies) would be trivial — even if you don’t have the knowledge yourself, a few days in a public library would tell you all you need to know. Add to that simple tools of deception (remote controlled cars, radios positioned to attract herds, etc.), and the only thing you would have to really worry about is other living people. But, once again, a relatively secluded spot would do the trick.

I think the odds of survival would be much greater there, than it would be in the wrong area of most US cities.

The biggest thing you have to overlook — where in the world are all of the people who would be having the time of their lives? Everyone is so down, but there are tons of people who would relish every moment of it. Some wouldn’t survive of course, some would find it wasn’t what they thought it would be, but at least one person, out of all of the people shown, should have a permanent grin plastered on his face.

At least one person should be test driving every Ferrari he can find, telling every pretty girl that it’s time to repopulate, drinking every bottle of expensive scotch, and going on a zombie hunt every time he feels a little bored.

Instead, we get people like Lori, spending every waking moment wondering whether it is worth it to go on another day. I would have loved to see someone to have asked her (or any other who see this as pointless) — would you trade your current situation for that of a prisoner in a North Korean camp? If they can “go on”, why can’t you?

that, and when they’d fight them off they’d all be covered in walker blood and offal. and nobody’s ever got any little bit in their mouths or eyes or body cut or scrape? ever? never?

again, things to overlook.

i think the walker fights atwoodbury kind of cover the urges. i think most people would be scared and most are dumb as rocks when it comes to improvising.

not sad lori isn’t around. kind of wish andrea wasn’t either.

Agreed. There is no reason they cant clear out the prison yard. And whoever is on duty can easily walk the fence poking zombies with ease. Now, on other zombies show, them bitches ran at high speed. THAT, was a whole different matter. See the movie 28 Days Later starring Robert Carlisle.

Still don’t buy it. People have been in far more harrowing situations, for an extended period of time, and have come through with a greater love of life, not less.

As far as the fact that everybody but Morgan is as dumb as rocks when it comes to creativity — why have they all died off? Shouldn’t they have been the ones to survive (on average)?

That is what kind of ticks me off about the show. At least one person should have pointed out the obvious. For 99% of human existence, this was how people lived — in a hostile world, filled with peers who wanted whatever you had, in a world where insta-death was an ever present possibility. Yet everyone, without exception, sees this as the worst possible state for man to live in.

In addition to “where are all the creative people?” — where are all of the people who understand the kind of world our ancestors lived in? Personally, I would much rather face herds of walkers, or a bunch of incompetents from Woodbury, than be a farmer in northern England facing a bunch of Vikings.

i agree about the love of life thing, and i think they’ve shown some of it in season 2, but not much. problem is the show is more interesting with them under stress.

i don’t think all of woodbury is incompetent, clearly they aren’t. but generally looking at intelligence on the bell curve, you don’t get a lot of geniuses and most people aren’t great innovators when you do work that has nothing to do with skills or fixing things or feeding people or building stuff, and then come home and watch 6-8 hours of tv and video games and surfing the web. just sayin.
