Walking Dead Surprises Me Again - Vanity

I won't give it away so anyone who hasn't seen the latest episode yet doesn't get a spoiler from me. . . but I was surprised by climatic scene tonight. They always find a way to surprise on this show.

As usual, depressing. I don’t know why I watch it.

Yep. A real surprise. One of the reasons I love this show beside the slicing and dicing. With this show, you can’t predict what’s going to happen.

Spoiler: Looks like **** is a goner.

I figured the Gov would take **** captive and say “I’m gonna need more dental chairs.”

Rather startling end to ****. But, WD seems have tough contract negotiations near the end of each season.

The only thing that surprised me was that the shocking deed wasn’t done by a sword wielder instead. (hope that didn’t give too much away)

That character has been at the top of my list for awhile. I thought it was way overdue.

I’m guessing it’s popular because no one is standing around examining how everyone feels but they yank the bolt and go out and get the job done.....

I thought this episode was fantastic.

The character has always been one of my favorites.

I can’t really say why, but that is the case.

Love the character, love the actor/ actress even more. I think he/ she is one of those actors/ actresses that once he/ she is gone, there is no replacing him/ her. The world is not producing actors/ actresses of this quality any longer that I can see.

I found myself feeling sympathy for both actors/ actresses involved in this scene, and I guess that is why I love this show, because the actors are of such quality that they bring the characters alive and make me care about them even though I know they do not exist.

That is rare these days.

Great show, and I’m gonna miss him/ her.

A few weeks ago I wanted to see him dead. Tonight I actually teared up when he finally did die. He went out storming the beaches.

Great episode.

You know what, I did too, and I wasn’t expecting that type of reaction.

The character was deeper than what is seen with a cursory glance.

It was brought to life brilliantly by a fantastic actor.

For all the the faults the character had, it also had worth.

Good stuff, I can’t think of anything else on tv that compels me to think about it on any sort of deeper level at all.

I know....you just can’t help wanting to dissect and discuss. It’s that good.

Michael Rooker did a fantastic job with the character of Merle. Merle really did have a well of humanity down inside. I’m sorry it won’t be explored any further now.

Walking Dead ping.

There are some spoilers in this thread. So if you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead, you might want to wait until after you’ve seen it.

Please let me know if you’d like on or off The Walking Dead ping list.

Anyone else catch a glitch? In first scene or so darryl and Rick go through a door. Darryl has crossbow slung and an M16 type rifle. When they go on the other side of the door, Rick has the rifle and it grew a scope....

What I love about this show is just not just a “zombie” show but it is show about the emotional aspect of humanity but it also a show of REDEMPTION. It gives us an input how we may expect how others will behave during a severe crisis when our world is turned upside down.

Wow tonight episode had me crying. _______ showed that he redeem him or herself at the end. Yet very surprising that I was crying. I do not cry over TV shows but this show did. Starting with Sophia coming out of the barn, Rick learning Lori died, now this.

I had last nights episode recorded and then I realized I really hate the show and deleted that recording and the recording timer. I just don’t get into it.

This was a terrific episode. I felt the same way about that character. When he bit it, I was like, Noooooo. Then, I remembered that I don't like that guy. Well, last night, I ended up liking that guy. He redeemed himself.

“Tonight I actually teared up when he finally did die. He went out storming the beaches.”

I felt sad but didn’t cry. I wanted him to shoot the governor but already knew the governor will be back next season, so that wasn’t going to happen.

When I saw the governor and Merle on the program following the show, the Merle character seemed to be like Merle in his real life.

Yeah I did but they(the writers) will say that as they went from room to room and finally exited the main building Daryl determined didn't need his AR 15(M-16?)to silently track his brother and Michone(sp?) and stored his while Rick realized he needed his...

At least that's what they WOULD say to cover their obvious oversight.

Meanwhile the CONTINUATION crewman(real job) is getting a "talk to"

It might have passed Firefly as my favorite TV show with that episode last night. I just got a chance to watch it, and I was stupid enough to click on a spoiler last week. Still shocked me how it happened.

You have my sympathies(on it's demise)

I caught it on reruns on the SciFi channel.

If you 're an Nathan Fillion fan he's the main character on "Castle" on ABC

Thanks for the sympathies;-). I just got caught up this weekend with Castle. Has been great to catch the little references to Firefly they put in there. Has been a pretty entertaining show and will continue to watch it.

He did. I hope Daryl will come to know that, somehow.

"When I saw the governor and Merle on the program following the show, the Merle character seemed to be like Merle in his real life."

I think so, too! Michael Rooker is a trip. When he was excitedly telling that story about the crack in the wall, did you get the sense everyone was thinking, "Get to the point", LOL?

One thing, though.....Merle told Michonne that he couldn't go back to the prison. Why not? Did he mean he just would never be able to fit in?

“I wanted him to shoot the governor...”

So how come when they shoot a guy in front of the Governor, the bullet doesn’t travel through and kill the Gov standing 2 feet behind. But when they shoot a deer, it travels straight through and hits Carl 20 feet away?

Must have changed to fragmentation bullets.

Michonne and Merle both earned their places last night. Rick is what I thought he was. Now, let’s see what Daryl does - ought to get interesting.
