This flu might be more frightening than the zombie infection. I love that such a simple naturally occurring flu outbreak can cause such utter turmoil during the zombie apocalypse. The opening scenes with zombie!Patrick eating his fellow survivors was creeptastic and disgusting. LOVED IT.
Michonne crying with baby Judith was good character development – although still cryptic. And I wonder how Michonne’s hurt ankle is going to affect her badassery? My guess is not much. She can just ride around on her horse (wait, is her horse okay?) and machete heads off.
The sheriff is back in town! I loved when Rick re-holstered his belt and dropped his six shooter back in place. A great homage to Westerns and I just love me some crazy Rick. And crazy Carl, too! Admittedly, Rick slaughtering the pigs (metaphorically, slaughtering farmer!Rick) was sad. Andrew Lincoln is really impressing me with his acting range. He’s come so far since Love Actually.
This episode needed more Daryl. Are Darly and Carol really going to hook up? Because that really bothers me for some reason. Their names are too rhymey.
Who the hell is feeding the zombies and burning bodies? I’ve seen nearly every character as someone’s suspect. So nobody knows shit. I think it’s Carl or someone as equally invested in getting Rick back into action.
The sneak peak of next week’s episode with the 7,500 strong zombie army marching towards our survivors nearly gave me a heartattack. I hope Daryl can get his comrades out of there safely. I’m also thinking the jail is looking like a bad option now – what with the flu and zombie army nearby. Looks like they’ll just have to find another home sweet hell.
