The Walking Dead (AMC) - Page 131

post #1951 of 1955

Joe´s ultimate demise was also a bit disappointing. They had created this somewhat intriguing character who had "bonded" with Daryl and had a huge desire to find and kill rick, but that all went to hell in just the first few minutes of the episode. Wasted opportunity to do something better.

I also agree with those who say the flashbacks didn´t add much. I didn´t need to know rick had gone from farmer to cold blooded killer. Everyone knew what happened at the prison and how he had mellowed.

Weird episode. Seemed like a lot of effort put into that subplot just to dispatch them in a brief moment.

Ha, that distracted me, too, even though it's completely inconsequential.

I agree about the wasted opportunity. And props to atlas for organically working a Checkhov quote into a Walking Dead discussion.

I disagree. If that went down between two guys in the parking lot of my local Whole Foods yesterday, absolutely. But in the context of the show, where they've lived with (and perpetrated) horrific violence for a year or two, and are in an armed stand-off/ambush/fight that already involves one guy preparing to rape a kid and a couple of other guys deliberately attempting to beat a guy to death to teach him a lesson (as they have pedagogically beaten people to death in the past)? Not so much.
