The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 2 and 3 Review: Part 2

This review continues with part 2 of the walking dead season 5 episode 2 and 3. Bob laughs hysterically as Gareth thinks he is slowly losing his mind….

As Bobs hysteria turns to laughter and amassed by what Gareth and the group believe is hysteria, Bob reveals to them that he has become ‘tainted’ meat. He was bitten back when Rick and the group was gathering food at the food drive storage complex where the priest led them to. The faces of the members go from confidence and arrogance to complete shock and disbelief… with a dash of hysteria.

Instead of killing Bob, they plan to use him. Sasha has grown to dislike the priest with extreme hate. She doesn’t trust him and thinks he is the one that is getting them into these situations. Rick, along with others (due to the writing they found at the side of the church) agrees. Gabriel (the priest) must explain himself before Rick cuts his throat. Gabriel reveals a recent dark past where out of fright for his own life, he locked the doors of the church as he heard the shrieks of innocent people getting eaten by walkers. Gabriel breaks down to the point where breathing and standing become extraordinarily hard. And in that time, everyone looks at him with a new light. He had to make a difficult decision for which he would be punished for and thus was he helps Rick and the group. Sasha is taken back.
 




 
With this little tidbit revealed, Rick must plan on attacking Gareth. He can’t do what was done to him back at the prison. He creates a bold plan that might end up working. Meanwhile, Abraham doesn’t feel like this is something he should risk and wants to leave with the ‘scientist’. Heads butt between Abraham and Rick as they fight for what is best for the team. Glenn finds his way getting between the both of them, making a very bold statement that if Abraham stays to fight and wait for Carol/Daryl, the group will help Abraham and the scientist get to NIH.

Now, outside the church, they recover Bob, obviously he didn’t get there by himself. Gareth seems to believe they have the upper hand by playing a little game with the group. As everyone hides in their respect areas after retrieving Bob, Gareth yells at the church… to which there is no response. Stating, “I know you all are in there,” it doesn’t stop Gareth from walking into the church when he could have easily burned it to the ground. What Gareth and his brigade would lead themselves into is an onslaught which would turn into no mercy and no bullets required. Gareth pleads for his life just like Bob did in the first episode. Being the sociopath that he is, he of course doesn’t mean it and Rick knows that. With that, Gareth dies through the art of bludgeoning by Ricks hands. The rest of the group dies as well ending episode 3.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 2 and 3 Review: Part 1

For those of you who haven’t gotten around to catching up on the magnificent show that is the walking dead, this post plans to briefly review episodes 2 and 3 of season 5.

Much has occurred since the first episode. We leave Rick and the group in the woods when they fall upon a pastor who is fighting off hungry walkers. Standing on a boulder, Rick and the group free him from his captivity, to which, Rick asks him if he has anything of significance (gun or sharp object on him) on him. Stunned that they would think a pastor would carry such a vial object, he would succumb to answering, No. Rick goes over the ground rules and the questions that he must ask. They obviously looking for shelter, the priest takes them to his church, “a roof and four walls.” It is here that the priest explains that he has been by himself living on food that was harvested for a food drive but went south during the apocalypse. Everyone seems to be on edge, including Abraham. But no one is going to leave Rick.



The food has run dry and some of the group must go on a scavenging errand to this place the priest knows. Hesitant to leave the safety of the church, Rick forces the priest that he must go and that he wasn’t asking. Rick, Bob, the priest and others make it to this foraging ground where they gather the food they need when they are attacked by walkers. Bob is attacked and taken under the water leaving us to wonder what has just occurred. Seconds later, he resumes on his feet and they wrestle the walker to his demise. Just as things seem to calm down, a walker is chasing the priest and the best thing he can do is to spread his body like he is the reincarnation of Christ. He is saved and once again, the group return to the church. As they return, Carl is found staring at the side of the church noticing something. He calls his father, Rick over to observe. Writing on the wall indicates that the priest has a sinister past.

That night, everyone eats and enjoys their food while Daryl is out with Carol looking for Beth. In the dark of the woods, inebriated, Bob is relieving himself when out of nowhere is knocked out. The haze falls from Bobs eyes to reveal the one man he really didn’t want to see again. Gareth stands before him mocking Bobs mercy at Terminus. Like all evil characters do, Gareth talks for an extended period as he munches on food. He explains to Bob that although what had happened to him at Terminus was unfortunate, he wasn’t particularly mad at Bob, rather is doing what he has to do to survive. This is when Gareth reveals to Bob that he is savoring the morsel of Bobs flesh. The camera pans out to reveal Bob legless. The thoughts of this makes everyone cringe. 

Bob screams in agony and mental anguish, but there is a splash of laughter making Gareth and the others skeptical. They think that he is becoming hysterical…

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 2 – Tyreese the Love Bird

the walking dead season 4 episode 2

The show opens up with a scene outside the prison as a walker hovers over the fence. We pan back to the new love birds of Tyreese and the new group member. She leaves him to go to the bathroom and quickly wash her face. After being startled and looking around for any possible people, she walks back to her cell to go to sleep. The recently turned child walker moves from his slumber and makes his way over to her cell before hearing movement in another cell saving her life. Before the first break, a poor new members soul gets his neck ripped from his body.

Coming back, Rick awakens holding his child in his arms. Rick and Carl take there usual rounds to feed the livestock when shots are heard coming from inside the prison. Carl asks his father if he can have his gun back and that he is sorry, that he is trying really hard. We see Carl remove a rifle to take down a walker about to attack Michonne. Panic sets as everyone rushes to the location of the shots. Meanwhile, Michonne while coming back to the camp, gets attacked by some walkers as a few sneak past Carl. As Rick and Daryl run into D-block, they see an overrun cell full of walkers. They quickly scramble to kill the infected and turned securing the rest. As it comes to an end, they find one attacked is more gone than originally thought. There were several close calls.

Lisa and Mika, the two young girls see there father for the very last time. Mika tries to end her fathers pain for herself but is just unable to do it. The raw emotion of having to end a sibling or parent is unimaginable. Carol is forced to take over and stab him in the head. There is a meeting amongst those that might have been caught in cell block D, that might have been exposed to what they think is some sort of fast acting Flu that kills in a day. We pan back to outside as Carl shows signs of improvement, emotion after the kill of the walker. He apologizes to his father, that is short lived as Rick is forced to push Carl aware in fright of getting ill. The camera moves back to the talking of the illness and we hear a cough. The original group Tyreese, his girlfriend is sick and must be separated from the others.

Carol talks to the girls, Mika seems to be hysterical. Daryl is digging graves outside when Rick comes up to help. It seems that Daryl is in need of leadership as he understands Ricks importance. Rick is unable to go back to that lifestyle, especially after what had happened. After about 5 minutes of them talking, Maggie screams for their help as the fence is started to get overwhelmed with walkers. We pan to Michonne as she feels helpless and a burden not realizing she is apart of the group. We see Maggie again as she is fighting the walkers. She falls unexpectedly and gets up slowly, which is unlike her and she doesnt have any physical problems indicating she most likely is pregnant. As the group continues to fight off the dead at the fence, it gets overwhelming and the walkers start to bend the fence.

In order to save the fence and thus save the group, Rick comes up with a plan to take the pigs he has raised and kill them to lore the walkers away from the fence. Meanwhile, we pan back to the cell where Michonne is getting wrapped up from a hurt ankle. She is forced to take care of Rick’s daughter after she throws up on Beth. There is a very close connection between Michonne and the child. Michonne was very hesitant which leads to most viewers to believe that she lost a child. The camera pans to Carl and Carol as they talk about what he saw last night. He doesn’t want to lie to his father anymore, but Carol brings up the point that these kids must learn to be strong and survive. She doesn’t ask him to lie rather not tell Rick what is going on. We see Rick get closer and closer to falling off the deepened once again.

It seems that Rick is being placed back in a role he doesn’t want to be in. It seems that things are about to change once again between Rick and Carl. Carl seems to be doing the right thing telling his father about what Carol has been doing. At the very end, we see Rick give Carol back his gun and business go back to the original way they were. It seems that Rick is becoming the leader once again. As the episode comes to an end, we see Tyreese look for his girlfriend using a bloody trail leading outside the confines of the prison, as a result he finds that they or someone lit them on fire.
