7. Merle Is a Goddamn Redneck Casanova — There were a couple of developments back in Woodbury, notably that Merle tried to make some moves on Andrea, but Andrea is apparently saving her heart for the Governor.
Meanwhile, what the hell happened to Andrea? Just a couple of days ago, she looked like she was on death’s door, and after a season of filthy bad-assery, Andrea looks like a goddamn barbie doll now. What in Andrea’s character ever led us to believe that she’d be the eyelash batting type? Anyway, she gave Merle some information about the farm, and Daryl’s potential whereabouts. Merle brought it to the Governor — whose name is Phillip, by the way — to organize a search party. The Governor was not a fan of that idea, as you can tell by the hairy eyeball.
Did you pick up on The Governor’s unmistakable tell? His blood vessels throb in his cheek when he’s lying.
8. I’ve been listening to my gut since I was 14 years old, and frankly speaking, I’ve come to the conclusion that my guts have sh*t for brains — That’s a line from High Fidelity and clearly not a belief that Michonne subscribes to, as her gut is tell her to get the hell out of Dodge, but Andrea wants to stick around a few more days because The Governor is sweet on her. Meanwhile, Michonne also pieced together that the Governor took out the National Guard troops.
9. R.I.P. Lori — I don’t know how many hundreds of scenarios were running through your head once it became apparent that Lori wasn’t going to make it out of the episode. For me, that moment came in the beginning when Rick was running through the prison fences screaming, “LORI!” Rick’s sudden affection could only mean one thing: They were setting us up for something.
Among the macabre scenarios running through my head was one in which zombie T-Dog met the arrival of Lori’s baby with his teeth. I was more surprised, frankly, by what actually happened, starting with Lori’s tearful farewell to her Carl: “You’re gonna beat this world. I know you will. You are smart. You strong. You are so brave.” WRONG ON ALL COUNTS.
Damn you, Lori, for making me feel something for you before you died. Even in death, you p*ss me off.
Carl brought it, though. The moment when you shoot your mom in the head to keep her from turning into a Walker is the moment YOU BECOME A MAN.
Let’s not forget who the real hero here is, though: Maggie is the one who had the courage to slice Lori open and pull out that baby.
Tell me I’m not the only one that thought: Keep that baby at arm’s length. You don’t know if it’s infected or not?
