The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 4 Review – Beth Returns

The Walking Dead Season 5 awakens in episode 3 with Beth standing in a hospital unable to understand how she was received. Officer Dawn and the doctor walk into the room. After getting her bearings, she talks with officer stating she is unable to leave until she pays back her time for her being saved.

She is taken under the care of the doctor, but things seem sinister as it seems many people are being held against their will. Moreover, she is getting very sexual behavior by one of the male officers.  Beth just wants to leave and find Daryl but is stuck in the dystopia where everything seems to be fake and forceful. A prison within a hospital she goes about her business, but whatever she takes requires more time spent working it off. As part of her discipline, she is forced to work with the doctor doing things she rather not do such as cutting off arms of infected flee’rs and tending to the sick with prescriptions.
 




 
While it seems on the very faint that people have roles, it really is the wild west. Everyone is ready to make their own moves and no one really trusts anyone else. The doctor uses Beth to kill the only other doctor (doctor was suffering from something and Beth unknowingly gave him the wrong drug). The individuals that play this fake role use new underlings to do their dirty work for them. Beth sees right through what is going on. They hold onto this false notion that someone is coming for them and they must do their part.  She meets someone she can actually relate to, Noah.

Noah has been at the hospital for over a year. It seems that although he is a helpful and strong minded individual, he also is very sinister and is willing to use others to his advantage. Making a plan with Beth to get themselves out of the hospital, they devise a plan that requires getting a hidden key in Officer Dawns room. During this time, she gets caught by her sexual harassment officer friend. Beside her for some reason is a turned patient that ends up getting the best of the officer ripping at his flesh. From there the two make a dash for freedom as Beth is required to shoot her way through walkers. Noah, injured from the escape from the shaft of a service elevator saves himself as Beth lays there in the midst of all the walkers. Behind her the group of officers to save her.

While being brought back into the hospital, she turns and notices Carol on a cart being brought into ER. How does she get there if she was with Daryl and the group? I would like to say the group knows where she is and is coming to get her, but we saw them on that bus. But wait, there were a few people missing…. It seems someone has found the car with the cross on it. We are in for a surprise!

The Walking Dead Season 5 – New Revelations About Daryl and Beth

In recent news, it seems that the crossbow yielding, post-apocalyptic badass, Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus, could have the possibility of being gay. In a recent head on statement with Robert Kirkman, the idea has most definitely been floating around. He also said that AMC would be backing this idea if Kirkman wants to continue forward with it. He also stated adamantly that the possibility of Daryl being gay is only an idea and nothing has materialized from this. So ladies, don’t freak out too soon. But these are the type of shockers that we love about this show.
 



 

In other recent news, Beth has been taken and she is one of those characters that we must watch out for. In one of the last episodes of season 4, we are left wondering who took Beth. What we have taken away from the whole Beth and Daryl situation is that Daryl was confused as to the role he played in Beth’s life. I believe where season 5 premieres, we will come to understand that reason. To us, it seems that Daryl plays more of a protective or father figure than a lover.

Furthermore, the individual who picked Beth up must of been stalking her for some time. It’s not like they stumbled upon one another and in a fit of panic, this individual took Beth. This was a planned kidnap or obduction. More importantly, why would this person have a fascination for Beth? We are about to be introduced to an entire new character with some creepy past.

15 The Walking Dead Memes – From Season 4

As the new season of the walking dead slowly creeps closer and closer, the anticipation is salivating. That’s why it is rated the number 1 television show in America. From this show, some funny things have resulted. Memes about the entire cast and crew have crawled through the internet, lighting up peoples Amygdala.

Season 4 has especially brought us some memorable images that some people have cut, cropped, and glued back together, to bring out the hilarity of the show. Below comes from different parts of the web that I was able to utilize.


That being said, the Governor was pretty cocky and high on himself.

Season 4 Episode 12 Review on AMC – Realization For Daryl and Beth

So as you guys now obviously know about the second half of AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 4, episode after episode goes through different individuals pasts. What led them to become the individuals they are today. Why they react to certain anxiety and stress filled situations. Obtaining information about people’s past will allow people to understand how they will react in the future. Greg Nicotero and the writers and cast explore this very nature. Getting into the biological, neurobiological, and behavioral data within the each character.

As I write this, I myself will be trying to answer this very question for my these coming up. What we have always known is that stress always elicits a certain behavioral response. That relationship is always there. The question is, how does resilience mediate this interaction. Humans have certain levels of resilience. Whether we obtain this resilience genetically or through growth is also in question.

The great thing about these past episodes is that we start to understand resilience (the ability to bounce back from something traumatic or highly stressful), whether we have become numb to it from experience and learned to “cope” or it scars us for the rest of our lives. These episodes burrow into different human behavioral traits and coping mechanisms helping us understand how certain personality traits are more resilient than others.


This last episode with Daryl and Beth further amplifies personality traits and the ability to bounce back. But some people don’t know that humans by nature are social animals. We can’t be alone for too long before our minds start to wander and we become lost in our heads. There is a distinct reason the writers leave each person with another. Why we see Michonne alone once again and her ability to almost lose herself again.

There are a few certainties in life. One of which is that we never do things individually. Meaning, we never do things alone. Whether you are running in the desert on a 50 mile ultra marathon or get the Nobel prize in physics when secluded in your lab. The bricks and mortar have been laid down. It’s because other people have helped you along the way that the culmination of brain power and brawn led you to the successes you achieved. You took the culmination of everything you learned and achieved something others haven’t. But that can only happen as a group and that is what we see in these episodes. The ability to survive because you known someone has your back. If you don’t, then it’s just time before you die.

We jump briefly into the world of Beth and Daryl, what makes them who they are. They are somewhat opposites, or are they. They both had abusive parents. And Daryl kind of feels like Beths father. This anger he has inside stems from his inability to protect others, his brother. The alcohol is a symbol clarity and resolve. Although one has never drank and the other abused it, they meet in the middle, on common ground. All the built up anger and rage and depression has been pulled out. They have saved each other from death. Not from the walkers, rather from themselves.

I don’t believe we will see this relationship as the talking dead has kind of infiltrated a little. I see this more as Daryl stepping in as a father. And this time he has something to live for, to protect, just like Rick.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 1 – Rick’s Re-birth

daryl

The most important of the opening scene of AMC the walking dead was Rick’s renewal into the realm of the living. The splash of water over his face is a rebirth from his old self. The very few first moments of the show are instrumental in the new thinking of Rick and where the character is headed.

We have now found several new love interests, most of which were of a shock because there was really no hint of it. There behavior seems to be predictable, to like someone, but not get too close to them as they know what that can mean. They know that all that they want could be lost very quickly.

Rick has become a decent father and has transformed him and his son. He makes sure his son stays a son and does everything a kid should do, rather acting as an adult, that of which he is not.

We see Carol and Daryl in the very beginning of the episode together talking to one another. You might take that as nothing, but for the rest of us, this is a very calculated frame. We are being introduced into a very important and soon to be relationship that will save the both of them and make them much more important.

We see Rick come into contact with a very mysterious woman. It’s very hard to pick up on her intentions. There is a grey area around her and Rick need to take her as an enemy. We pick up on a cue of hers where she opens up to Rick about the things her friend “Eddy” has helped her with. This has made her become very sketchy at best. Rick needs to keep his distance and those 6 bullets he was speaking of earlier was a foreshadowing of what is to come.

Later in the episode, Carl comes into contact with children around his age. We see this distance he has among him and his counterparts. He is still uneasy about allowing himself to be a kid and we see this hesitance when he is talking with them and the new male friend he has started to get to know.

Just before the 2nd break of the show, we are introduced to a another new character (african american), whom is a big name actor. From what I have picked up, he has a very important role in his ability to pick up on important queues surrounding him and the entire group. We understand that prior to this apocalypse he was an alcoholic and we see this fight between him and himself with a bottle of wine, which he ultimately wins.

On patrol, Glenn runs into baby gear, we see him look at this with intent, which leads us to believe that they have been trying or this is the next step in there relationship. Or they have been talking about this and there has been some hesitance.

As the show moves on, we come into the issue brought up. The woman with “no” name is up to no good, “started making trouble in his neighborhood.” As a result, she killed herself. Everything about the show is foreshadowed at the beginning of the show.

We end the show with a very important aspect of the show. One of the very useless characters starts to turn and they pan out of the water. Why is there so much influence at the water?

Questions we should be asking:

1. Although we know the ceiling was decrepit and there were leaks. Why now does the ceiling fail? The walkers weren’t really concentrated? I think it was a bad ass attempt by the writers to make a cool scene!

2. What is to come of this new black character (Bob) that knows so much, but has so many weaknesses?

3. What is Glenn foreshadowing? Is it what we all think?

4. Why are the eyes ripped out of one of the walkers? That was important!

5. What was importance with that pig? Was she pregnant? A source of more food? Was there something different about the disease? Adaptation?

6. Why pan at the water after the kid drops? Something wrong with the water that turned the kid? Does this link back to the pig?

7. Has the water finally been contaminated…. (which it should have been a long time ago).

8. Has Beth really created this strong outer shell or is she still fragile? Why does she hold so tightly onto Daryl?
