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 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 5 Episode 4 Video Sneak Peek

The Walking Dead Season 5 returns with an all new episode 4 next week on AMC. Beth awakens in the same hospital as Rick, looking out over Atlanta’s decrepit infrastructure, she doesn’t know what to think. She is unhinged and scared. She walks over to the door, shouting to be answered when suddenly the door opens and an officer and doctor enter… Something seems sinister. Why would she be stalked? Why would someone only grab her? Maybe this episode answers this. Below is the sneak peek of the episode.

Cast and Crew: Evolution of Men – The Walking Dead Season 5

Season 5 of the walking dead premieres October 12, 2014 at 0900 on AMC followed by the talking dead with Chris Hardwick at 1000. What are we expected to know about the characters going into the first episode. The cast and crew sit down prior to the start of the season to explain the new world the group find themselves in. As our readers have come to find out, the obstacle is not so much the walkers (which are a nuisance), rather the other lost people that Rick and the group run into.
 
Things to really pay attention to should really be the psychology and behavior of Rick and the others. Rick is left with no doubt and the clips we have come to watch show a very resilient and confident Rick who has no reserve about making the tough answers. We come to see how the other people they come to interact with shape and model who they become. Furthermore, for quite sometime now, we have seen this ray of morality, this glimpse of civilization. Now, the dynamic has shifted. What the group has been trying to hold onto for such a long time, is starting to disintegrate. The world they yearn for is a facade as of now. There are too many variables that keep them from trying to rebuild sanity.
 
Their performance, anxiety, and normality has shifted. The expectations and hopeful realities are merely dreams which have almost led them to death. The realization of who they want to be verses who they HAVE to be is finally taking over. In order to survive to create that utopic future lifestyle, sacrifices must be made and tough calls must be answered.
 
Below the cast and crew delve deeper.
