Hank - he does have his obsessive thing - bugs :)
I too assumed he must have Aspergers in real life because it was SO good. I was shocked to find out he was acting.
I don't know what you guys were thinking with trashing Cody's performance. Yes, the beginning didn't highlight his vocal prowess (remember Joleen? we do, he can afford to have fun), but then he busted out some great notes and brought it home. Ballad after ballad gets boring. Or anything after anything does.
That performance was a blast and it showed his #1 asset - his personality. And frankly, that's marketable - a lot of the other people might not be that marketable despite unarguably higher talent.
And I am not easily wooed by glitz or things like that - I am a purist - but I think to give Cody an F is just bitter.
Before you judge so harshly and call someone's way of thinking crazy, get some knowledge about it.
This show is wonderful because of how realistically they attempt to portray everything. This is NOT an exception.
Wow, this is the first time I've ever been angered by a review.
Ryan's reaction is extremely accurate.
I have known troops doing exactly that. The Taliban uses Opium trade as a huge funding or their operations. And they kill farmers. The logic in his feelings are no different than saying to someone "hey, you should check out this class on ___", they do, and get mugged and killed on the way. Even if you know logically that it isn't "really" your fault, your heart still does not, and furthermore this would have been something met with a lot of resistance by any farmer there, and the fact that they did do it would have meant that they placed a lot of trust in the troops convincing them.
This is one of the story lines I love the most because it IS actually REALLY realistic.
I will remind myself that hardly anyone knows what really happens in Afghanistan - half the country doesn't even realize we have troops there! - but still. Before you judge so harshly and call someone's way of thinking crazy, get some knowledge about it.
Fatin - LOVE why you want to make sure Carol is alive LMAO!!!!
Good point though :)
Daryl definitely shone this week. Who the hell was calling? I don't want to read the comics and be spoiled but for anyone challenging it, "POTS" (Plain Old Telephone Service, AKA copper wire phones) run independent of electricity. It was rotary dial too, so no electricity would have been needed to complete that call.
Wow crazy Rick.
But yes to the body count questions. I'm quite confused. I don't think Carol's dead but you're absolutely right, she can't stay dead long or it's highly implausible... unless she' IS taking care of Lori. Hmm...
I get both Michonne's and Andrea's actions. I do hope it is Michonne who gets the revenge though!
I like that it's not completely obvious, and it's DEFINITELY finding its chemistry.
Right-on about Gavin tempting (that's Satan's trick, yes?). Appeal to the sins - greed, vanity, etc. But is he THE devil? I don't know - seems - odd.
My impression was that Olivia's ex was something supernatural and bad, and so Gavin stuck him in a box. Lots of people stuck in boxes, suitcases, etc lol. But here is where I was confused: if the other guy who stole it opened the box, isn't the bad thing out already?
The little girl is the grandmother (the adult in the photo died before being committed) but maybe she keeps the small girl presence as a ghost to be recognizable in the photo? I am sure we'll find out.
I loved the scene of Conrad giving Victoria the gun. It is said that under hate usually has to be some kind of love (in these circumstances) - otherwise how did the hate get this strong - and it was kind of sweet. In a Grayson-psychopath kind of way.
I thought for sure Kara was going to push Victoria over that balcony - as I think did Victoria (awesome acting on her part).
I thought Mason knew Ems was from Juvi too but maybe it just "clicked" this time. Either way, I have a feeling there is a mistake there somewhere that Ems made.
Also, someone posited that Ashley is Aiden's sister from his origin story. Looking more and more plausible. They DEFINITELY go way back it is clear now. And I do NOT like that Aiden at least hinted at it - maybe too easy a mark - but did not share what he knows.
Awesome episode though all around! Man is Jennifer Jason Leigh creepy. In a good way :)
And yes, you DO need a new cover graphic. The only people in it who are alive are Rick, Carl and Glenn!
I can't wait to see someone push Rick's buttons now, especially since in reality, this all comes down on his shoulders. It was all caused by the guy he threw out to die in a way he would not have done 8 months ago. Lori and T Dog are dead as a result of that single action. Fantastic character development.
You think Lori would have said "my estranged husband can't do it, but sure, my 12 year old son can - no damage at ALL there.". SMH
Did Lori just die from the blood loss? I don't really get it - dying from C-Section, even in those circumstances, isn't the norm. Maybe Carol finds her? I don't think Carol is dead (to the commenter who asked why everyone keeps saying that, it was because when Rick and Darryl went back looking for them, they found her scarf, but not her).
Rick brought actual tears to my eyes at the end. So did Carl, actually.
I am a mom, and I don't honestly know if I COULD have the same universal "save the baby" mentality Lori did this time, not knowing A) if it was alive, B) if it was a zombie, and C) its chances of survival, especially without me and breastmilk. Interesting angle.
