OK, well that's just stupid.

Gawd, I guess people post and talk about stuff like that because they have nothing better to do.

Episode 3
Four Walls and a Roof




Other than a major bloodbath that really drives home the idea that it's a new regime for Team Rick is Kill or be Killed as they have their vengeance on Team Gareth, the episode was more somber than anything else. It was really about saying goodbye to Bob and I actually liked this episode a lot because of that. Usually on the show, everyone that does meet their end happens in a grisly way. So with Bob infected, it was just a waiting game. I didn't like Bob at the start, but over time the character grew on me. So I was kinda sad to see him go, just like everyone else. As for Gareth, I'm so glad they killed him off and didn't let this drag out any longer than it needed to be.

Episode 4
Slabtown




This episode threw me for a complete loop. The entire time you are watching it, you are kept on your heels because you really don't know what is happening or if it's even real. I kept thinking one of two things the first half hour. Either this was a moment in Beth's life before the events of TWD took place or it was some sort of fever dream. Well, it was neither, which made it even more bizarre. For 4 full seasons, we have basically been out in the woods with the characters and now Beth is being sheltered in a Hospital and life is back to "normal". Hell, they even have a janitor mopping the floors!!!! In spite of this being a complete 180 for what I've come to expect from the series, I dug it. I like the final scene that has Carol being wheeled in on a gurney. We obviously know she and Daryl are using the Trojan Horse method to gain access to Beth. Can't wait to see how it plays out. I like the addition of Tyler James Williams who I haven't seen since the demise of Go On.

Episode 5
Self Help





I found this episode to be very dull and I didn't like the idea of having to spend an hour with Abraham and is getting more and more annoying with each passing episode. On top of that, watching his flock of sheep following a man that is constantly putting them at risk just doesn't make sense. I personally would never follow someone so blindly, just because he is a "Soldier". If it wasn't for the final 5 minutes, this episode would have been a complete bust. But the big reveal was worth slogging through the episode. I always suspected that Eugene was full of sh*t regarding his "knowledge" about the cure to save the world. The moment of 'truth' when he confesses to the group that he's full of sh*t, it was great because you can see the wind literally being taken out of their sails as it was all for naught. Props to the sex scene with Rosita.

I do feel the writing -or something- has fallen off the last couple of episodes. I knew that Eugene was full of it but was not thinking they would reveal it yet. Its in the comics but later. I am a big fan and will watch no matter what. Just a few more till the mid season break. We will see what happens.

Episode 6
Consumed




I will start off by saying that I really enjoyed this Carol / Daryl-heavy episode. I liked seeing the evolution of Carol and using specific scenes over the course of the series to highlight how far she has come. With that said, this was one giant tease. Hell, the past 3 weeks fall into that category. 3 Weeks back, when Daryl steps out of the woods, it's safe to assume that the person he calls out of the woods will be Noah. So, it's kind of frustrating that they have delayed the rescue of Beth for another week. I'm sure that next weeks episode will open up with the aforementioned scene and rounding up Rick and company to mount a team rescue of Beth. I don't think they will delay the episode I have been waiting for another week. At least I hope not. Getting back to this episode, I like the final scene when Carol gets hit by the car. No, I'm not happy or sadistic. I just like the idea that the writers flipped what we all thought was a Trojan Horse plot that we all assumed was why and how Carol ended up in the Hospital to get to Beth.

Episode 7
Crossed




Sasha! What the f*ck is wrong with you? You are so much smarter than that. Seriously, with all the sh*t that has gone down since the world ended, and all the f*cked up people you have run into since then, what the f*ck would posses you to turn your back on a Cop, a stranger you know NOTHING about? Of course he was going to bum rush your ass. Fail! The episode as a whole was decent, but way too slow. It was more set up for next weeks Mid-Season Finale. And what the f*ck is up with Abe? He spends the entire episode sitting in the middle of the road, pouting like a petulant child. Dude, you got played big time by Eugene, deal with it and move on.

Episode 8
Coda




Oh shiiiiiiiiiiit! There aren't that many shows out there that continually susprise me and I don't mean in a good way either. I'm talking about bone chilling shock that comes out of nowhere. Sure, there were rumors leading into the mid-season finale that someone was going to die. But the time it got to the end of the episode, I had forgotten all about the rumor. So when Dawn shoots Beth in the head, it truly was jarring for me. My immediate reaction was "what the f*ck just happened" followed by anger. I had grown to like Beth throughout the course of the series. She may have rubbed certain fans the wrong way, but I thought that was the best part of her. The immediate retaliation by Daryl in killing Dawn was immense joy because I absolutely hated her and wanted her gone.

You gotta hand it to the writers for having the balls to kill off a character that had the potential for an even bigger story regarding a possible romance with Daryl or even Noah. It's easy for writers to kill off characters that are not fan favorites or had just run their course. But for Beth....they proved that no one is safe on the show. Maggie's reaction was expected and sad to see. Now we have a 2 month wait until the return in February. FYI, kill off Gabriel. Can't stand him either.

Watching Talking Dead after the monumental episode was just as sad as well. Everytime Emily Kinney, who plays Beth broke down, my eyes were welling up. Even when Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) talk about how hard it was letting go of  Emily, I was sad.

'The Walking Dead' Fans Petition for Killed Character to Return

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omDnW8fxP8E

I love the fan loyalty of the series and I too am still bummed about her demise. As much as I would like to see her return, it will NEVER happen or they risk compromising the integrity of the show by doing so.
