So it’s Sunday.
And contrary to popular belief
it will not be a Funday #
Why you ask?
because I am going through some serious withdrawals
that’s right it’s going to be one hell of a dry spell until October…
no Rick Grimes hotness
no Michonne badassin’ all over the place
no Maggie and Glenn romancin’
that makes you question every guy’s loyalty on the planet… homeboy isn’t even legally married and still calls her his wife…chooses to continue to search for her over saving the world…AND….remembers their anniversary borderline flu-death…all during THE FREAKIN’ ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE…any excuse a guy ever gives you, you can officially tell him to shove it…
“Glenn Rhee,” take notes boys 😉
no Daryl…which in and of itself is pure withdrawal
that’s it no new episodes of “The Walking Dead”
for 6/7ishh whole months
why do you do this to us!
Baby come back
let’s talk about this…
ALSO…my thoughts on the Season 4 finale…. (*spoilers ahead* if you haven’t watched…you’ve been warned.)
Um….not their best finale, nor was it one of their best episodes.
For a finale, the way they hyped it up so much, I honestly expected some much crazier shit to go down.
I wanted my face to be blown off.
I wanted to be left like WTFFFFF????????
And at the end of that episode to be honest…my reaction was pretty blah.
I was just like… “That was weak.”
Which actually pains me to say, because this show actually ranks pretty high up there for me.
They’ve done some epic work on this show! (Burning barn episode anyone???)
So my expectations were pretty high.
I was really surprised no one died.
But someone’s body parts are cooking on that bbq for sure (please don’t be Beth,
please don’t be Beth!)
Oh come on… we all knew Terminus wasn’t gonna be all bright and shiny…
There are no sunflowers in the zombie apocalypse…unless you’ve got some human remains to enhance the soil with….yea I went there…I mean did you miss the array of bones they ran past….and why was Rick the only one who was weary of Terminus, I mean points for the sneak in…see them before they see you/burying the extra guns for escape purposes…I mean come on Maggie and Glenn should have known better than to take those signs and flowers at face value!
And what was with the creepy cult room! And all that weird writing…some people have gone bat shit crazyyy in this zombie apocalypse!
But even so, I honestly expected so much more from Terminus….We spent the better half of this season on the road to Terminus and then once we get there it was like the excitement fizzled out. I thought it was gonna be a freakin’ free for all, I thought shit was gonna hit the fan…hard… when Rick saw Hershel’s pocket watch that he gave to Glenn. [And we all started to notice the termites (as Andy Lincoln likes to call them, haha) sportin’ pieces of our people’s clothes and other items.]
No joke, I climbed on my couch and started screaming when I saw that watch chain, because I wouldn’t be able to take it if Glenn had died! I thought Terminus was going to be some crazy maze that they had to get through in order to survive, meaning if they weren’t captured and ground up into today’s daily beef, then they would be set free. I thought it was gonna be some twisted game or something. I mean in the promo, the way they showed Rick all shaky and bloody and they had the Terminus Lady’s voice echoing like crazy “those who arrive survive” and the alarms blaring, plus that creepy music, I expected some serious wild human sacrifice chase or something. And I got none of that. In fact, I half expected to find Beth sitting in a warehouse with half a leg and no arms or something, as the creepy Mary clan chowed down. And then the even scarier part was I thought they were gonna find the rest of our gang stuffed in a meat locker just waiting to be prepped. Or worse I thought Maggie would have lost Glenn, because let’s face it the fact that she burned that picture he kept of her and told him he didn’t need it, would have just been beautiful irony if she were to lose him.
I was just so scared, at this point that’s the only real romantic relationship we have on this dang show, and I’m sorry I don’t care if it’s the zombie apocalypse I need my romantic shit! Although I was really glad to see the bulk of the group found each other again, it sucked having their storylines spread apart (but it was realistic and made sense for the storyline and for the introduction of new characters,) and Daryl and Rick’s “you’re my brother” moment was freakin’ perfect #bromance.
But I guess the way they did it made sense in the long run. I mean Season 5 is gonna be the return of the crew we all know and love. They are gonna wipe the floor with those “termites,” and it’s going to be a beautiful thing to watch. I think they skipped out on shock value and sudden deaths in order to play out a greater story. I see that they set themselves up for a very extensive action packed Season 5. At least one can only hope!
I’m way too attached to the current group; I mean over the course of these past 4 seasons, we’ve lost so many people. So I can’t take losing anyone else… (I draw the line at our Santa looking stud Hershel ;)…omg that was rough to watch, I still can’t deal!) I can’t lose anyone else…I just can’t…the originals that is…I like Sasha, Tyreese, Tara, Bob (well scratch that, Bob annoys me ever
since he got Beth’s bf Zack killed!) and all but I would recover much quicker if we lost one of them. I could do without the operation “save the world” gang too. But no I love my originals; Rick, Daryl, Carl, Carol, I consider Maggie and Beth originals because well in the sea of all these new
faces, they’re friendly and we love them! Carol and Beth have really evolved and become chicks who get shit done! As for Michonne well she’s just badass and Judith is a baby (who doesn’t love babies, *cough cough* LIZZIE!) and I can’t wait to see her kickass! #littleasskicker
I seriously wished Mika would have lived; I was soooo ready to ship her and Carl. I saw them growing up and being like this kick ass teenage zombie killing couple. She was a sweetheart… (damn you crazy Lizzie! … now THAT was a sick episode that was more finale like!) I swear give me any type of story line and I will find a love story! #Hopelessromantic
Beth, Carol, Tyreese and baby Judith are still unaccounted for.
But if you ask me I think they’re gonna be the ones to help save the gang. Beth is gonna find them and they’re gonna come up with a kickass plan.
Something about that flashback where Rick takes the sheriff’s hat from Carl while they’re farming and puts it on Beth’s head and says “there’s a new sheriff in town.” It just makes me think she’s still alive and is gonna save them all! Also wtf with all those flashbacks! I get it was to show how drastically Rick has changed and it was great to see Scott Wilson in his legendary suspenders again, but COME ON, those shits took up half the episode and don’t even get me started on how many commercial breaks I had to sit through! Anyway, I hope Beth is alive (p.s. can we just do a quick 5 seconds on…um Maggie I get you love Glenn and I’m super glad you guys found each other, but do you not care about your baby sister…like shouldn’t you be looking to see if she’s still out there?) But anyway I digress, cause guess what… I could possibly get into a Daryl/Beth love connection (I was dead against it, but I’m warming up to the idea haha)…see I will ship anyone, if I think there’s chemistry there! 😉
Speaking of love connections…RICK NEEDS A WOMAN!!!! And I realize Michonne would be the most obvious choice; they get each other, she’s good with Carl. But I just don’t see a sexy vibe between them, I used to think there could be, but now to me they seem more like best friends. But I think they need to introduce some new badass chick, who’s a hottie and who reels Rick in. I mean come on; guy hasn’t gotten any love for like 2 whole seasons! And I mean when your wife was getting busy with your best friend while you laid in a hospital bed…well… let’s face it, whori Lori was well a whore. Rick deserves better! (but does anyone else feel like Lori’s death was a little too quick and unbelievable, like we never saw Carl shoot her, I guess I’m still waiting on zombie Lori…and not wedding white dress zombie Lori, like real deal zombie Lori!)
My actress pick for Rick Grimes leading lady you ask…
She is no stranger to playing a badass chick… (most similar TWD role; played Ana Lucia in “Lost” which shows she is perfect for the walking dead world)
In fact I googled her and I’m not the only one who thinks she’d be a good fit for the show! HOLLAAAA!
I don’t know who she’d play from the comics, I don’t read them, so I don’t actually know if Rick ever gets a love interest post Lori. But I think they could make up a whole new character…why not they did it with Daryl and look at what a crowd favorite he is!
So here’s my character proposal:
Name’s Roxy. (roxy and rick, huhhh? *nudge nudge* huhhh? I can just see it now!)
A Doctor. (Cause let’s face it these people need one…Bob ain’t too hot!)
Who is good with a machete
and has one hell of an aim with a gun.
(her father was a drill sergeant in the army).
She’s good with kids, used to be an Aunt.
Lost her fiancé a few months ago (you know she and Rick could bond over that!)
and lost the rest of her family at the early stages of the apocalypse.
Has been on her own since losing track of her group when their “sanctuary” was overrun.
A few years younger than Rick. (oohh la la)
She lands in Terminus and crosses lines with Rick’s crew…
And when they all join forces to save their lives…
Rick welcomes her into the group.
Seriously can I not write this show?
I would rock that shit!
Also am I the only one who thought that the whole Rick biting Joe’s neck out scene was kind of weak.
Don’t get me wrong that particular part was like HOLY MOTHA Fjkfjgkjklhkldfoig
WHAT DID I JUST WITNESS????
You knew rick was gonna lose it the minute the gun shot pierced through his eardrum! That’s a surefire sign that Rick’s about to go crazy.
But up until that point no one was really fighting back. Carl was just crying on the floor, Daryl was getting his ass handed to him…which never happens, Michonne was at least trying to make a move but douchery dude had a gun to her face, and Rick was being restrained like he was in a nut house but the grip wasn’t even convincing. It was like Rick saw no other option and decided to go all cannibal, and once they saw Rick rip out the guy’s jugular with his teeth, that lit a fire under their asses… I mean COME ON… our crew isn’t the kind to lay back and get taken advantaged of. That’s why I was kind of surprised by the way that scene started. Plus what was with that chubby almost rapist, like really what was that guy even trying to accomplish…He totally deserved to get his stomach stabbed out!
Also I feel like that was the major highlight, sure there was the whole shooting scene at Terminus. But I just felt like I wanted it to be non stop action, I mean that is technically what we were promised! And yet the possible highlight of the episode was thrown out in its first half.
For me it was kind of slow…hit you with a bang…then slowed, kinda picked up…then fizzled.
And I get the whole meaning behind the last line…”They’re gonna feel pretty stupid when they find out…that they’re screwing with the wrong people.” I get Andrew Lincoln’s delivery is what sells it and you know that this group of people, when all together, is a force to be reckoned with. But I really think that line could have used an F-bomb! (if I read currently, in the comics I do believe they use it). It would have just been way more convincing and so badass…but then again…there’s the whole aspect of AMC language restrictions and I imagine you can’t say FUCK outright on television, at least not on AMC if you’re trying to remain “family friendly” hahaha. But I mean if they can show the amount of gore and guts they show, what’s a little F-bomb here and there; right?…I mean Daryl Dixon just deserves to belt one out! Haha
But never the less in happier news I do have Seasons 1-3… (just got 3 for my birthday!)
So I can always relive it!
and Season 4 comes out August 26th.
Also you know netflix always be there to dry your tears 😉
BUT I guess in time I can fill the void with catching up on all the episodes of “Revenge” I missed. I hear it’s getting pretty crazyyyyy! (that Emily is a badass!)
I just hate when all my shows end, gosh it’s stressful! 😉
So my fellow walking dead fans, I’m here for you, we’ll get through this together!
