Was on vacation this past week and missed the live airing, which is a real rarity for me. Caught up last night though and it was about what I expected. I figured there would be a few episodes like this, letting things settle before they start building again. I don't want them to rush into the comic storylines too soon, we've only just gotten over the Governor and Terminus at this point.
That scene with Carol and the kid was off the hook...she just broke that poor kid. Dark stuff indeed. I love where her head is at though.
The scene with Rick reaching for the gun was about more than just jealousy I think. I think that was a protective instinct which will play out more and more over the coming weeks. It seems clear to me her husband is very controlling if not abusive. The way he cut her off at the party when getting the drinks, the possessive arm around her after she says hi to Rick, not to mention the way he referred to her last week as "my wife" and not by name. This is not a good guy. (Sucks that he is the only doctor though)
The W brand was definitely interesting. Curious to see where they go there. The Buttons-feast was some pretty quality splatter too. I'm glad they find ways to sneak that kind of brutality into episodes like this. Poor Daryl can't catch a break. He sure loves him some spaghetti though!
The scenes with him and the gay guys were great...sort of typifies what Deanna was talking about at the party, people from different walks of life coming together to form a community. Nice to see him sort of soften up at the end there. Dude needs his chopper back.
I had totally forgotten about Gabriel. I have to wonder about him too. And it's hard to blame Sasha for being disgusted with everything because it really is a bizarre kind of dreamworld those people are living in. Freaking pasta makers?!? Oy vey. Get up on that tower, people!
I was hoping we would get more on that girl and her excursions outside the wall but maybe next week. I think that's who took Rick's gun.
