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 3 – Will Rick and Carl Ever Be The Same?

After last episode, we have come to expect that Rick and Carl are back to there old business. After removing his gun belt from the container, it was on. We open with the mystery of who actually burned those two sick individuals?

The first scene was the most emotionally intense driven scene the show has ever laid eyes upon. Some of the best acting and drama filled emotion pores out of the characters. We see the anger and trauma still within the characters; it’s still raw. And they realize it. They are so close to being lost and savage, that all it takes is a little spark of wrath.

Tyreese has seen somethings, his look and pain shows something mysterious that none of us know. What is he not telling us? We know that his almost wife, love of his life, the only thing keeping him alive is dead. But there is something that has been there, waiting in the darkness of his soul. Bob goes to rectify and help the situation only to find him broken and unable to fix.

The group with Herschel are talking, we see Glenn and hear and listen to a churning sound coming from his stomach. We can tell that he is starting to get scared as he asks Herschel who is most vulnerable.

We see that Rick and Carl are still fighting their urges not to turn into the men they once were and caution is maintained. Tyrese is mad, mad at the world and has no care about the people around him. He has fallen into the abyss of which Rick was once in. It seems that the rage will just increase which will lead to something bad. We watch as more and more group members, more importantly, young ones get sick; including Glenn. We notice that relationships are breaking in front of our eyes. Is Glenn meant to survive? He doesn’t have much time and we hope that veterinary hospital has the antibiotics he needs to survive along with the others.

Carl has turned back into the Sheriff that he wants to be, just like his father. We see what happens when it becomes hopeless, when nothing can be done physically. It’s tough to fight so hard against dying to be brought down by something you can’t see. We see how the whole group is effected and how different psyches deal with situations beyond them; how they cope.

We come upon a ripped apart tent. A walker pinned alongside a tree when something spooks them from behind. It was a test for Carl, not having the need to kill aimlessly, which he passes with flying colors. Everything, even things that seem erroneous in the grand scheme of the show, lie a test for others. We see this throughout episode 3.

No one realizes it in the camp, but Carol has had to deal with the worst. She has to see people slowly die in front of her, take care of those that can’t take care of themselves. Herschel brings a very important point up in the show, the most important point of the series. It’s something that emanates through every person, through the morality of man. This episode is the apex, the highest point in this series, helping explain when all is lost, what we decide to do. What makes us human.

Daryl and the group that go on a road trip to find antibiotics are awoken by walkers on the road. There are overrun and forced to evacuate the car leading to what we believe is the demise of Tyrese. Tyrese is stuck in a comatose state for some time until he is awakened by rage. In the end, we see him want to sacrifice himself. Was he thinking about Karen? Does he want to meet her again? Was this his way of doing so? In the end, he he comes out from the darkness.

Herschel starts giving Dr. S and Glenn the tea. Glenn is starting to believe he is worthless. Herschel is the man of reason and is taking over the role of Dale. At the end of the episode, we get a striking revelation… Carol is revealed as the killer. How was Rick able to make this summation? Look at her role, look at everything in this season that has lead up to the revelation… Not as shocking as we think!
