Warning: SPOILERS for The Walking Dead episode 8x04, "Some Guy," the comics, and possible future deaths on the show.
After the airing of The Walking Dead episode 8x04, "Some Guy," fans everywhere are mourning the devastating death of King Ezekiel's beloved pet Tiger, Shiva. The loyal animal came to her King's aid one final time, saving Ezekiel, Carol, and Jerry from a crowd of Walkers before being overwhelmed and devoured by them.
Now that The Walking Dead is onto Season 7, the character list for the series is bigger than ever before. Back in 2010 the season ended with just a handful of characters stuck on a highway, and this season it we have multiple communities full of people interacting.
In arguably what was one of the best episodes ever, The Walking Dead certainly ramped up the tension this week... but still no Negan. Forget the bloodshed, the bullets, and the beheadings, there is one talking point we should really be addressing, because someone looked awfully familiar. That's right, episode 12, 'No Tomorrow Yet,' had a cameo (of sorts) from the one and only Johnny Depp!
The Bride had her Hattori Hanzo, Luke had his lightsaber, but look out Hollywood, now Daryl Dixon has a rocket launcher! Could this mean The Walking Dead's bad boy is hanging up his crossbow for good?
"Help".... The faint cracking over a walkie-talkie at the end of last week's The Walking Dead episode 'Always Accountable' adds fuel to the fire that a certain Glenn Rhee survived a recent run in with some walkers. It won't be long before Daryl Dixon is in saviour mode, rushing to help another damsel in distress and in a secret that is worse kept that the resurrection of Jon Snow, it is more than likely the person on the other end is Steven Yeun's Glenn. Whilst Glenn apparently became zombie chow at the end of episode three, here's betting why he makes it back alive, but why he still MUST die.
The Walking Dead has already made household names of its actors across its six season run, with the likes of Norman Reedus starring in this year's film Triple 9 . But it is Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes who leads the intrepid group of survivors. With a (now) all star cast, could you imagine a world without Lincoln as leader Rick Grimes? Would he be as sweaty? Would his beard be as bushy? Sadly, we will never know, but here is how it could have played out.
I remember when I used to be excited for each Sunday, anxiously awaiting the next episode of The Walking Dead. However, with the show now in its eighth season, I've found myself far less interested and less invested in the plot and the show's many characters. My interest in The Walking Dead has waned to the point where I debate whether I should even watch it all any more. With the show's viewership declining, it's time to ask what's gone wrong and why our favourite zombie show isn't as good as it used to be.
A small creak in the distance had Ben lean away from the brick building. The gentle wind that had slid in from the East all week shifted his hair as if a lover had done so. Blowing upwards, he moved the hair out of the way because there was no way he wanted those memories. Eyes went up as he did so before leveling back down to try and spot the source of the creak.
This heart wrenching episode begins where the previous episode ends, with the people of the Otto Ranch holed up in an underground pantry after narrowly escaping a horde of walkers. We are quickly reminded that the ventilation system has somehow malfunctioned and that the oxygen supply is quickly dwindling. Alicia (played by Alycia Debnam-Carey) quickly, and rather unexpectedly, does the kind of advanced math that would qualify her to be a shoe-in for MENSA membership and determines that a mere two hours of oxygen remains before this temporary shelter becomes a permanent tomb. (Seriously, that kind of brain power and no one has thought to make chain mail zombie proof suits yet? Come on, people!) To make a bad situation even worse, we have also now discovered that several of the people in the pantry have been bitten.
Everywhere you look there are zombies. On TV, the silver screen, t-shirts, video games and even in our music as people gleefully sing and recreate the dance in Michael Jackson’s Thriller. There are cereal bowls, garden gnomes, bedding, house slippers, lunchboxes… almost any item you can imagine has been zombified. Zombies have become a part of our daily lives and were welcomed with open arms and the occasional moan. The question is why? What would be so appealing about a walking corpse? Is it possible that we as a culture tend to step within the grasps of zombies when in times of societal stress to deal with our biases, anger with our government and alienation, either self or otherwise imposed?
One minute the teacher was speaking about math. And then the next minute she had been attacked by a student.
Rose was there, though drifting somewhere inside her mind—away from all the arguing, the crackling of gunfire, and the slamming of the classroom door.
Nathan had just left work. He was in his beautiful car of the year, a RAV4 black Cromer 2013. This car was a gift he had received from his wife. On the way, he thought of his condition of life. Barely 48 years old, he had been married for 25 years. He had betrothed his wife Maëlle at the age of 22 years. She had given him two beautiful children. The first being Damien, now 24 years old. A university student, a future surgeon, he had always been a studious pupil and an exemplary adolescent. The blond hair descending to the shoulders, and the blue eyes, he had inherited the build of his father.
