As soon as I saw that Marilyn Manson was on the show, I turned it off. He is a HORRIBLE "interviewee" The guy just flat out sucks and NEVER stays on point. One of the worst That Metal Show episodes ever is due to him. So, not surprised to hear how it went down on Talking Dead.

Walking Dead Stomps Sunday Night Football, Gets Renewed

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0fp8WjPeUc

I guess this is good news for TWD fans, but the last episode still leaves a bad taste in my mouth to not really care about it being renewed. I just hoped that what we got last week was an anomaly and doesn't start to suck and go downhill.

I'm thinking it was just a minor arc, setting up all kinds of things to go down. We have main characters getting sick. Carl is well, hmmmm. Now the infection is inside. Someone is playing with the dead. Carol is changing. Rick is changing again. I’m sure we are going to be seeing the Governor sometime in the near future. A lot went on, but in a subtle way.

I thought the renewal was a no brainer.

Especially if they are considering a spin-off

Well there had been other series that had proposed spin-offs that never materialize because the main show started to tank. Heroes anyone? After watching last weeks episode, I immediately thought of the former series and how it all went wrong. But to be fair to TWD, Heroes sucked from the moment the Season One Finale aired. TWD at least has been consistently good thus far.

Indifference




Rick is such a f*cking hypocrite! How many times did he just react to the situation in front of him that necessarily wasn't the right choice to make over the course of 3 seasons? Yes, Carol maybe reacted a bit prematurely, but she only did what anyone in this new world would do in order to survive. I thought this was a much better episode for Carol, especially over the previous episode. I don't think she will be banished for long as Darryl will no doubt go out looking for her. Another thing that I really liked about this episode was the fact that it was all out on the road. I'm so sick of everything be done in and around the Prison. It's dull. Sending them out beyond the walls give the viewer some room to breath and it opens it up for unexpected moments as well.

Ya, Ricky has got a lot of ‘splaining to do.

Can Rick lie through this? I think he would be a fool to try.

But at the same time, how can Carol come back with Tyrese, an emotional time bomb, and have no qualms about killing Carol for her actions, even though we all know she’s doing the right things to survive. Until Tyrese gets out of the picture, Carol coming back will be problematic. We may just start seeing a tear in the fabric of the community.

I think Carol is going to end up in the clutches of The Governor, much in the same way that Andrea did. No, I don't see them becoming an item, but I do see him kidnapping her and trying to use her as leverage against Rick and more importantly Michonne. And I actually foresee Tyrese actually being the one to initiate some sort of rescue mission (when he realizes that their group is falling apart because of a divide they have. Pro/Con), one that Rick will object to but will have to do it anyway when he realizes that it's gonna happen with or without him.

I think Tyrese will finally see the bigger picture here (something that seems to elude Rick these days) and when Tyrese puts the past behind him and starts to take on the role that Carol has been doing, there will be a light bulb that comes on over his head, leading him to mount the rescue. This time, they will succeed where they failed Andrea and this would be the perfect time for Michonne to kill The Governor. Well, that's how I'd like to see it play out anyway.

Caution - Spoilers

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with McBride to discuss Rick's decision and how Carol will fare solo. Plus how will Daryl respond to his closest friend at the prison no longer being there?

Q: Rick has kicked Carol out of the prison! What was your first response when you read the script?
A: I didn't see that coming! I was pretty floored and I love it. I liked where it went. I looked at it from the story and thought, "God, how ironic." This choice that Rick has made, there's so much going on and so many parallels. There are so many ways to turn what's going on here to find these parallels between Rick and Carol, between what she's done and what everyone has done in some way. I can't help but really like the way that this went down.

Were you worried that you were being written out of the show? Will Carol be back?
No, I wasn't worried. We don't know if she'll be back! (Laughs.) I can't say! I can't wait until everyone sees how this season plays out. It's going in so many directions.

If this was it for Carol, would you be satisfied?
That's a tough question because I like not knowing. I can only imagine what the hell she's up to out there and what she's going to do. I like that aspect, but then it's so abrupt and weird. It's so hard to understand and to completely banish her, it's flooring.

Do you think Carol deserved to be banished from the group?
No. It's interesting Rick wants to go on this run and bring her along for it. They're testing one another, it seems. She knows what happened to Shane (Jon Bernthal) and questions what's going on there. Rick is feeling the same way and wondering what's going on with her. Obviously when she took the risk, Carol knew there would be consequences if she had to confess or if anyone found out.

It's interesting that you mention the timeline. There's a theory that Carol is covering for Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino), who in this episode reveals that she's not afraid to kill people.
I'm sure Carol did it. But did she want Rick to find out? Hence the episode title, "Indifference." That's an interesting title for this and that attitude toward some of the things that Carol felt had to be done, because there was a more pressing matter that all goes back to the things we have to do in this world to survive and can we come back from them? There's a bit of that at play: Rick pulling Carl (Chandler Riggs) in and taking his gun away after he shot and killed the boy. There's also a part of Rick that obviously doesn't trust Carol because he sees what she's capable of now -- he's seen a lot of what she's capable of in this episode. I don't know what else she's capable of, had it been someone else besides Karen. What if it had been one of our original Atlanta people? What would she have done then? She's going about this with a very single mind and not talking to other council people, and that's frightening. That threatens his position of leadership, even though he had taken a backseat to it and didn't come to the council meetings -- which she and the group really wanted him to attend since his voice is important. She's wanting to be caught and wanting Rick to do something.

Could Carol attempt to return to the prison for Lizzie and Mika (Kyle Kenedy)?
I certainly hope so. She knows someone has to take care of them because that was Ryan's (Victory McKay) dying request. Her heart is broken, and I would hope she finds a way back, but I don't know. Plus she's got the crappy car! Rick took the good one!

How will we see Rick explain her absence when he returns? How will that go over with everyone? Will he tell Tyreese (Chad Coleman)?

That remains to be seen. Is he going to tell them exactly what happened? Will he make something up? Is he going to tell everyone that she killed Karen and David? Is he going to tell them why? Is he going to tell them why he left her? There were other options, and he could have brought her back if he was worried about her killing other people. She told him: Karen and David were suffering. Was it a mercy kill before they had an opportunity to turn? That's what's so weird about that ending: Why is banishing her the only option? I understand he didn't trust her and felt uncomfortable and uncertain about what she's capable of, but is there something else going on with Rick personally about his ability to lead and make decisions and trust himself in the decisions he makes? Have both of them gone too far?

Will Rick struggle with his decision to banish her? Do you think he knew what he was doing when they left the prison together?I hope so! (Laughs.)
I'd like to see him struggle with the decision in terms of how he's going to address how Carol isn't there anymore. I hope he takes more time with that than he did deciding to banish Carl from the group. I think throughout the episode, Rick was making his mind up. The more Carol asserted herself, it seems the more his mind was made up. She doesn't back down; she has a mission and I like that about her.

While McBride aka Carol doesn't give anything specific away, she does talk about her ideas of what she thinks will happen.

Now if she's been fortunate enough to read future scripts, then ya, I would think they would be spoilers. Otherwise, she's just forming speculation like you and me.

Part of me wants to check out other volumes of the series, but then again part of me is glad that I've stayed away from the books, even if they have deviated from the written word and have started going off on their own stories.

It's amazing how I go from one episode where I'm ready to throw in the towel on the show to another episode that has me anxiously awaiting next week.

Internment



Internment is easily one of the best episode so far and I'm not talking about just this season, but the entire series. The thing about the show is that you can't predict anything. With the amount of characters from the main cast meeting their untimely demise, everyone is fair game as they are on borrowed time. And that's why this episode worked to perfection. Any number of people were bound to go out at some time during the episode: Glenn, Herschel and Maggie were the ones that I thought were doomed. I didn't know if any of them would make it. Intense episode and full of action. High body count. The big kicker comes at the end with the reemergence of The Governor outside the prison.....
