Sneak Peek of The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 7

Carl Grimes stands before the priest asking him to pick a weapon when he starts to talk. Stay tuned for the next installment of the walking dead season 5 episode 7. Below is the 1 minute clip.

 



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.

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.
 




 

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer – Rick Ready for Action

The Walking Dead TV Series vs. the Comic – The Three Major Differences

As comic book lovers and diehard Walking Dead fans know, the TV series that goes by this name is based on the comics created by Kirkman, Moore and Adlard. With Season 4 just going off air and season 5 ready to make its premiere in February, the buzz in town centers on analyzing the show and the director’s take on the original storyline. It’s also a great time to refresh our memories on the major areas in which the TV series differs from the comics.

A More Ruthless Comics Version of Tyreese

Tyreese has the same devastating background with his daughter and her boyfriend, Chris making a suicide pact in both the TV and comic version. However, in the comics, it is Julie’s death and Chris’s escape that pushes Tyreese over the edge, and into killing and dismembering the boyfriend. The TV version of Tyreese did not quite go to these lengths.

Dale Exits Early on the Show

No one likes it when the good guys die, but when they exit earlier than ‘necessary’, it can be heart wrenching for the audience. Dale’s death on the TV series was positioned slightly earlier than in the books. Thankfully, it was a well planned move story-wise, because the storyline supported the character’s abrupt end and added to the ‘don’t know what to expect’ factor that continues to keep viewers engrossed in the series.

Merle Only Exists in the TV Show

As far as obnoxious characters go, Merle takes the award. This character is nowhere to be found in the comics but he has a meaty role in the TV show. On the same note, the twins, Alan and Donna from the comics have no role on the show so does that even it all out a bit? This is also somewhat true of Andrea, who dies on the show, but in the comics, she becomes a sharp shooter and helps defend the prison.

 


Watch the marathon this July and see what is revealed.

For those of you that are true walking dead fans, there will be another chance to watch season 4 when the 4th of July rolls around. AMC will be running re-runs of the show all day. During this all day marathon to celebrate this nations independence, the writers of the series have “supposedly” allowed for little tidbits to be shared with its fans prior to the unveiling of the season 5 trailer.
 
The Walking dead is the number 1 hit television show series right now and for the weekend, July 4-6, AMC will be running seasons one through 4 starting at 9:00 AM and running continuously through the weekend. The weekend finally will end with an episode preview of the talking dead hosted by Chris Hardwick at 9:00pm ET on July 6th. The featured guests are to be executive producer Scott M. Gimple and actress Aisha Tyler.
 
Furthermore, on July 8th 10:00 ET, the series will go inside the walking dead. This one hour special will map out the entire series and the viewers will be able to go behind the scenes to view the important people that make this show such a success.
 



 
But wait! There is more. On July 15 10:00 ET/PT, the viewers will be able to see the detail put into going from extra to walker. This is something very unique and something to take notes. If you want to be a walker extra, this is where you will want to learn. I know that I would be if I was ever called to do it. There is a lot to prepare for when becoming a walker. These steps include behavior, demeanor, position, posture, mindset, stress optimization, and much more.
 
For those that have only heard about the show, this is a great way to catch up prior to the series 5 premiere in October. Althought the post date hasn’t been set, this is the best time to set that DVR to catch up on televisions most watched tv series about a post-apocalyptic and comic inspired series where the story begins months after a viral and disease ridden world comes to an end and lone survivors must group together to save the world from human annihilation.
