Okay y’all. This was the episode where Merle’s heart started beating again, Michonne proved her mettle to the last three people that didn’t believe she was a badass, and Daryl gets more crap to deal with.
Next week? Season finale. Gulp.
:01 – This sounds an awful lot like “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.” Rick knows his Star Trek.
:02 – Meanwhile, Merle tries to get his ganja on. Priorities.
:04 – When Merle is the voice of ethics and responsibility, you know that the world has truly gone to hell.
:10 – “Hell, I’ll even drink vodka!” Stay classy, Merle.
:11 – Carol trying to reach Merle. Daryl telling Glenn that Merle feels bad for what he did. Merle, Merle, Merle. Am I the only one thinking Merle ain’t long for this world?
:14 – Yo, Merle. DO NOT QUESTION DARYL’S BALLS. I’ll have to cut you.
:16 – Laurie sighting! Rick’s losing it. Again. Then again if you’re not feeling like garbage when you contemplate selling out a friend, your soul is dead.
:18 – “I can’t. I won’t.” *phew*
:18 – … So of course that happened.
:22 – Merle, do not mess with Michonne’s sword.
:24 – It’s the Civil War up in here y’all. Brother against brother is going happen.
:27 – “You have my blessing.” A touching bit of calm before the storm.
:29 – One more reason to hate car alarms. They’re zombie dinner bells.
:29 – Even tied up, Michonne is still a badass.
:39 – That was unexpected!
:44 – Greg Nicotero, I heart you.
:45 – A new twist on Death By Cop? No, it’s Pied Piper!
:47 – Busted.
:48 – Damn that’s cold! Step aside honey badger. The Governor don’t give a shit.
:54 – “Yes.” This is definitely a feeling all the feelings episode, people. And hello, a rock worth cutting someone’s finger off for. I guess.
:57 – “I’m not your Governor.” Aaaand that’s the #1 theme of this season y’all.
:58 – Oh god. Daryl. Oh poor Daryl. Dammit. DAMMIT. And also, Merle.
1:00 – Next episode, more lying from The Governor!
Next episode promises to be a real throw down. But til then I’ve gotta wonder….
* Will Daryl turn to Carol for comfort (please say yes!)? Or will he push her away (dammit!)?
* Does having a ginormous sparkly rock on your finger make it easier for zombies to find you?
* Will Ghost Laurie join in when hell comes knocking, or is she just hanging around because heaven’s out of beer?
Guess we’ll find out. I’m already pining for season 4….
