The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 5-6

First off, I apologize for taking so long to write these reviews. Especially, to those that like reading my blog. As the maintainer of this blog, I also have several other jobs that require my time. So again, I apologize for those that might have been waiting.

With that being said, we stumble back into the age of the apocalypse, the walking dead season 5 episode 5. We have been through a lot up to this point and are wondering what is going on. We awake with Beth looking on and seeing Carol in the stretcher. She doesn’t really know how to take this, but I would believe that although she is unconscious, she is there. For Beth, this is reinforcement that she isn’t useless. In the moments during the prisons scenes and scenes with Daryl, she felt like she hadn’t been pulling her weight. She believed she was unimportant to a certain degree. Her helping Noah was this adrenaline rush where she became significant once again (Or at least I believe).

We return to Abraham and the group traveling North East to Washington D.C. And the progression of the series, Abraham gets increasingly impatient. We come to understand a little more about Abraham’s back story. Everyone within the group understands that they can’t hold up in one location, but at the same time cannot be negligent, which can lead to death. As they sit driving down a long and lonesome road, the engine explodes forcing the bus they are in to go tumbling over. Dazed from the bus landing on its side, the group (Abraham, Glenn, Maggie, Tara, Eugene) are forced to recover and attack the walkers head on. As walker by walker fall, Eugene makes an “assist,” spitting on his first kill (one upping the walker… marking his territory).

After everyone is able to regain focus and compose, Abraham gets his hand checked (which I believe he got bit, but this isn’t a spoiler… it is just what I believe), the group comes to a consensus to walk back to find another vehicle. Abraham is unable to fathom or contemplate that type of idea. As he was trained, he never stops and never backs down… but I think there is something else to this… they must move forward. It’s up to Glenn at this point bring him back to reality.

They come to a town where they are able to locate a new suitable vehicle, a fire truck, composed of 500 gallons of water. The truck is placed at such an angle as to keep something from coming out of a building. With everyone unaware, Abraham goes to move the truck to find out that body parts are blocking one of the valves on top of the truck. Unable to move the truck at the time, walkers are released from the prison they have been held in and Eugene once again comes to the rescue as he hoses the walkers down with the water.

They spend a night within one of the stores there. It is here that Eugene reveals an important secret and we see the bare ass of Abraham as he pounds away at Rosita. Eugene reveals that he is the one that sabotaged the bus. His reasoning was that he was useless to the group and once his mission was over, his life would become meaningless. This was revealed to Tara. Tara was extremely pissed seeing they all could have died from that, but stated that he wasn’t useless and that they were a group. They decide to keep this little sabotage a secret.

The next day, the move forward driving further north to come to a block in which there is a camp filled with walkers. Abraham, being the irrational individual that he is wants to move forward. But everyone is not willing to place themselves in a suicide mission and that’s when Eugene reveals to the group who he actually is. Eugene is no scientist and does not have a mission to save the world, has no cure, and people have died to protect him. Everyone stands there in complete and utter shock, with the inability to fathom what just happened. Abraham is so overcome with anger, that he starts beating the shit out of Eugene before he is forcibly let go. Abrahams world goes black as his whole existence up until he met Eugene was nothing. He thought that he had some point to live, helping Eugene save the world, but that apparently was not the case (but I also believe that Abraham thought they would be able to save him and thus the rush to Washington).

The camera pans out and we are exposed to Daryl and Carol as they go in search for Beth.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 Review – The Governor’s Return

The opening scene of the walking dead shows the road the Governor has had to lead for him through his psyche. It has been a destructive road leading him down a destructive path. We meet a new group for the Governor to influence with a very hot military individual.

We notice that the Governor uses a name. Is this his real name? Is this significant of a possible change? These are very important questions to be asking. Themes come back to haunt him in this episode as he meets a father with two daughters. The tides have turned as the daughters are taking care of their father. A lot has changed for the Governor as he has stayed relatively quiet. Him not eating and throwing out the food suggests his hesitance to believe these individuals he has taken up with. We see the naivety of this small little group as they are really trusting as if they know how to handle themselves.

A transformation has come across the Governor or at least we are left to witness. One of the daughters asks something major from him, something he would never do, but does without asking, something extremely dangerous. He sees the fathers undying love for his daughters. Is this something he gets comfort from, something that he never got and is will to help fight for? At the hospital, we see the Governors inability to kill any walkers. Why? Also, back at where he was staying, he creases the photo of him with his family. Does he wish he was never apart of the family? Is this a way of letting go?


It was inevitable that the Governor would have to face this little girl Meghan, whom looks a splitting image of his daughter. He is so ashamed that he is unable to look at her straight in the face because the pain comes back. He must fight back his feelings with laughter by telling a story he doesn’t want to.

The past come back to haunt him as he is forced to make a difficult choice. The father of the two daughters passes away from cancer and gives way for the beast within. It’s up to the Governor to save them from what used to be there father. After the incident, he witnesses the little girl, daughter to one of the two girls shy away and cower behind her grandfathers couch. She doesn’t really get to say goodbye by the time its all said and done. Foe that the Governor has had enough. He destroys the picture of him and his family because he now knows its over and he shouldn’t be using them as an excuse.

It’s not surprising what happens at the end of episode 6. The Governor must flee with his pod and ends up falling into a ditch that he used to create to capture walkers. He kills them all off saving the little girls life and reuniting with his old cohort.

What questions does this spark?
