The Walking Dead Weekly Wrap Up – “What Happened and What’s Going On”
Synopsis: After the recent trials the group has faced, a slight detour could be the solution they’ve been looking for.
Thoughts: **SPOILERS** With all the hype leading up to the return of The Walking Dead, was it all you expected it to be? While maybe not as action packed as Walking Dead fans have gotten used to this season, the mid-season premiere brought another grief stricken episode. After wading through the over abundance of commercials, the core of the episode was about survival, pure and simple. The show was laid out in more of an artistic way, as we are taken on Tyreese’s post-bite journey. Just as an aside…am I the only one who wondered that if the Governor has the eye patch in death, does that mean Bob Stookey only has one foot in death?
If viewers look deeper, however, it shows a very deep loss of hope. Tyreese’s demise comes just almost immediately after Beth’s. Beth was the epitome of innocence, and Tyreese was never comfortable being a killing machine. I believe these two deaths signify a huge shift and possibly making the show veer off into a darker direction. My prediction is that the group will show more and more frustration and hopelessness. I also feel that the survival of the fittest mode for the crew will kick into high gear.
The future looks bleak at best for the group. How will they fare? Who will make it though the rest of the season? Stay tuned…
