Well another kind of slow moving episode of the The Walking Dead. At least there was some action in this one. Am I the only one getting a little sick of the drama with Laurie? I get it, she is anguished etc.
Anyways everyone tells everyone else’s secrets, except only two non-Herschel Family people know about the dead people in the barn, so there are still some secrets laying around.
Finally Andrea learns to shoot, this whole firearms training scene happened in the camp near Atlanta in the comic books and drew a large amount of walkers to the camp. In the television show they did the training away from where they lived which made more sense so perhaps that won’t happen in the show. Carl learns to shoot finally as well and for those of you who have read the comic, I wonder if he will be shooting people and Zombies next episode.
What else happened? Laurie is pregnant, she doesn’t want to be pregnant, then she wants to be pregnant, first she doesn’t tell Rick , then she tells Rick , Laurie Laurie Laurie …..
Glen and Maggie get attacked by a walker and Glenn smashes the shit out it. Perhaps Maggie will come to her senses about keeping the walkers in the barn? Well if it follows the comic, she probably will next week.
Andrea and Shane go on a little side mission and shoot up some zombies and then hump in the car afterwards. That was a pretty good part of the show. Although in the comic, I’m trying to remember I may have to dig the comics back out, everyone actually slept in a housing development similar to that one, and woke up to the zombies and people dying all over. I wish they had kept that scene in the show.
Shane is developing into a more and more menacing character which is great. Dale is such a busy body in the show, can you believe that he was actually banging Andrea in the comic?
I hope the action takes off next week, the small doses of action and then the long drama is ok, but it’s time for some shooting.
