Another Sunday, another new episode of The Walking Dead, and this week's episode was even better than the season premiere.
We're going to try to avoid specific spoilers of those of you who haven't seen the episode yet, but some of the words below will definitely be spoilerish, so read on at your own risk.
Is it just me, or has Rick gone a bit off the rails? He pretty much killed two people in a precautionary manner, one of them in a rather cruel way. When he looked at the one convict and said "run", I couldn't believe it.
Don't get me wrong, I loved when he took care of business this episode, and hope he keeps it up, but it just seems like the long hard winter (that happened off screen for us) made him a harder man.
We also found ourselves actually jumping when Laurie was trying to help Herschel... Does she know that the breathing part of CPR is pretty much irrelevant now? She got lucky.
Daryl and T-Dog had their small moments of awesomeness again, although we'd really like to see both of them get more screen time and lines. They be our faves.

We actually liked Carl a little bit this week too, which is unusual because he's usually an annoying little bitch.
The preview for next week showed only Michonne and Andrea, so we're wondering if they're going to have their own episode and we wont see our prison gang until the following week... either way, it looks like The Governor and Merle finally show up in episode 3, so were sure it'll be fine by us.
The first two episodes of this season already feel for satisfying than the whole of season 2 did; there's not as much talking, whining, and sitting around being dramatic. It's pretty much been all action and incident.
Here's to hoping that this plot pacing keeps up all season long.
|Man oh man is that gonna be cool...|
