Some commentary as to how the upcoming change in season may play out well for our band of survivors: what will the cold do to these mindless zombies in search for their next bloodied crunch? I found it interesting that, in almost every episode, the survivors had to endure sunny skies and warm weather as they battled the walker hordes (save the well orchestrated camp attack scene in Season One). Will the zombies all freeze "to death" - but will they thaw out?
Goatie zombie man who eviscerated Dale and the poor cow was definitely gruesome. Fabulous make-up and design work!
I love the Walking Dead. I especially love following on Twitter at the same time as the episodes are on because it's nice to see some of the wise remarks & have others to say similar wise remarks to. I read all the comic books & they are much darker. It's interesting to see the plot differences between the series & the comics which differs quite a bit this season.
Shane dead, too? Seems all the well-defined characters are being axed for budgetary reasons. Bad move.
And man, Carl just keeps a wandering into everything--day or night.
I thought this episode played out brilliantly and had some amazing set shots (e.g., moonlit scene with Shane and Rick during their stand off). I figured that these two would have their moment eventually in this season, but having Shane done in like that was almost poetic in nature.
And what's with Carl dropping into those scenes so randomly? This Sunday's season finale looks thrilling. Too bad we have to wait so bloody long for the next seasons to commence. I remember when shows started in the early Fall and ended sometime in June.
Carl needs to be bitten. Soon. Little critter is getting on my nerves. As a plot device, he sucks - wandering all over hell and creation... No way Lori should have let him out of the house that night - I mean, they were all told to go in and lock the doors, right?
Shane... I had seen in the rumour sites that he would likely be coming back as a walker, but I expected him to die, and come back in a bit, not right away. In any event, yes, a very poetic, almost beautiful confrontation on that hilltop... nicely shot.
Looking forward to the finale next weekend... though a bit sad, as I'd love to jump right into Season Three immediately....
