The Walking Dead: Top 10 Moments

It’s almost October which means it’s almost The Walking Dead season, which means let’s go through the greatest zombie moments over four seasons. Tweet us or comment below if you feel like we missed anything!

Morgan

10. Rick, Carl and Michonne run into Morgan (“Clear” Season 3)

For dedicated fans of The Walking Dead, viewers had a chance to reunite with crazy man Morgan from the season 1 episode 1. (Morgan and his son find Rick walking down a deserted neighborhood street in the first episode) Fast forward to Season 3 and Morgan is still alive, unfortunately his son isn’t. I think a lot of fans wanted to know what happened to Morgan and I think in the back of our minds we always knew him and Rick would find each other. After Morgan stabs Rick in the shoulder, he asks him why he never used the walkie-talkie. Rick explains he tried for weeks to communicate with him but eventually had to relocate his gang and thus out of walkie range. Rick realizes Morgan is delirious after he finds out his youngest son was killed by his undead wife (the wife he tried to kill back in season one) In the end, Morgan declines Rick’s offer to join them and continues on with his mission to ‘clear’ all the zombies in the area.

The Walking Dead: RECAP ’30 Days Without an Accident’

It is season four of AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead…can you believe it’s been four seasons already? We didn’t end off with a supreme cliffhanger in the season finale but that doesn’t mean we weren’t excited for last night’s premiere.

The episode starts off pretty normal, normal as it gets for TWD…the prison has a lot of new people, a pretty little garden, and little piggies. Everyone seems to be well adjusted to life behind bars…I feel like Carl (Chandler Riggs) needs a really husky deep voice and he’s just not there yet. Also, he’s a real debbie downer but I guess that comes with the territory when your childhood gets cut short because of a zombie apocalypse and you watch your mother die as she gives birth to your baby sister. It’s okay Carl, we understand. I don’t know what these people were up to in the summer but obviously everyone found love in a hopeless place because there are couples swarming!

Beth (Emily Kinney) is dating one of the new boys…Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) is shacking up with some white girl…Glenn and Maggie are still going strong…by the way Maggie isn’t pregnant. Carl totally has the hots for one of the new girls…or we’re just hoping so he can finally get a life and stop being a worry wort. Daryl and Carol have this really weird relationship…love them together…but by the end of the episode it looked like Daryl might have a new love interest.

Um okay, so a few people from the group (Michonne,Daryl,Glenn,Tyreese, Beth’s Man, new guy and token alcoholic Bob Stookey played by The Wire’s Lawrence Gilliard Jr) head out to the nearest department store to stock up on some things. This was my favourite and most thrilling scene of the episode…blenders and boom boxes!! There was an endless supply of brand new electronics and kitchen appliances…I was so excited the prison was going to get a bunch of shiny new toys. As the crew make their way through the exciting aisles…a swarm of zombies were hanging out on the roof of the building…a strategy Michonne created using a loud boombox.

Okay, so you just know something bad is about to happen when the new guy heads for the wine rack. I mean, it’s dark in the store, the lights are off, but somehow the dude finds himself in front of the bottled wine..and you can just see the torment on his face. He doesn’t know what to do, take the wine or leave it…just put it in the damn cart!!! I’m sure everyone would love a glass of wine…your four years into the zombie apocalypse you’re allowed to pop bottles. But nooo he’s a total drunk and he attemps to put the wine in his jacket…as if he has room in there…I don’t get these people. So he finds inner strength and puts the bottle back on the rack…except the entire shelf comes crashing down onto him…he’s okay…he’s just stuck under the shelving. The crashing noise wakes up all the zombies on the roof…and of course because there’s a zombie apocalypse…buildings aren’t stable anymore…I don’t get the connection? One by one zombies start falling through the ceiling…it’s raining zombies!

Now the shopping spree has come to an end…I’m super pissed…and everyone is in killing zombie mode. After a few minutes of fighting, Beth’s man goes to pull out Bob the drunk…and he does…Bob and the crew walk away to leave but Beth’s man is behind them…a zombie reaches out and bites his leg…the crew turn back and Beth’s man is already on the floor with a zombie chewing out his neck. It was disgusting but it serves them ALL right for turning their backs and walking away too early. Everyone knows the danger creeps up when you least expect it.

Meanwhile, Rick is out in the forest looking for animals to cook. He finds a dead hog? But then some weird zombie looking lady creeps up and starts smelling the animal. At first it looked like she was a walker, but Rick watches her from a distance and you can tell she’s human. She wants to join Rick’s crew, but first Rick demands he meet her husband and ask them three important questions. She leads him back to the camp…which is just a tent…and all of a sudden she turns around and tries to stab him. We see a bag of something…she’s talking to it like it’s her husband. Okay so lady in the woods is obviously crazy…and she proves it when she says goodbye and stabs herself. Her husband was in the bag but was a zombie? This whole scene was really weird. Rick watches and cries…and then walks away. Waste of time.

Carol is the ultimate multi-tasker, she’s the nurse and she’s the librarian/teacher. Love her. She’s reading a book to all the children in the library…one of the new boys asks if he can be excused because he feels sick. Oh you just know something bad is about to happen. Carol lets him leave…and then she stops reading and pulls out a case of knives. The real education begins now. Carl sneaks into the library to find out what they’re doing…Carol sees him and begs him not to tell his father about the new curriculum. Carl doesn’t say anything and storms off.

When the gang return, Daryl’s the one to tell Beth about her dead beau. She doesn’t shed a tear, Daryl waits for her to show some emotion but she doesn’t. All she says is she can’t cry anymore…and then she stands up to change the sign that said ’30 days without an accident’ Then she goes and hugs Daryl and he cradles her in his arms. Awww cute!

It’s the middle of the night, and the new kid is still feeling sick. Now he looks terrible, so he decides to go take a cold shower. He collapses and the camera pans down and he’s mid transformation. So what I’m thinking is he either attacks next episode..or he infects their entire water supply because he was totally coughing into the water tank. Or both? Either way this is really, really bad.

What do you guys think? And what was the whole point of Rick finding the crazy woman in the forest? And when is The Governor coming back? And does anyone else miss Andrea?

The Walking Dead Premiere!

Last night was the premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead and boy were we in for a gore feast! A lot of people were saying how Season 2 was lacking zombie gore, so writers for the third season are making sure Season 3 is jam packed with lots of blood and guts. Right off the top it starts with the crew going at it against a small herd of zombies, they look like they’ve had tons of practice bashing zombie brains, and even little Carl is able to protect himself (especially with his deeper voice). An interesting fact, season 3 starts a few months after season 2 ended. The time between season 1 and 2 was shorter than the time they’ve had together between the end of season 2 until now. Which means, Andrea has been with new character Michonne longer than she was with Rick and the others. Interesting, right?

So Andrea is still alive (phew) she is one of my fave characters, but she’s sick- and we’re not sure why. In the time they’ve spent together, Andrea admitted she’s saved Michonne’s life several times, which means Andrea’s illness is recent…and Michonne doesn’t look as badass as we thought she was. Turns out, she keeps the two handicapped zombies leashed to her to mask her human smell when she’s out hunting. Apparently the one zombie was her fiance…and the other her best friend. Clearly she suffers from separation anxiety.

So Rick’s lady is preggo with what looks to be the fakest pregnant belly I’ve ever seen on TV. She doesn’t look at all excited to be having a bun in the oven, probably because she suspects her baby to come out a zombie. Her and Rick aren’t talking very much, they’ve always had their issues, but it seems like since Shane’s death, they can’t sweep anything under the rug.

Carol and Daryl seem to be hitting it off, they almost had a sexual moment but they look really weird together. Producer Robert Kirkman admits season 3 will dive into Daryl’s background and face some of the challenging situations he’s had to go through in his life. He obviously came from a bad upbringing, it’s going to be interesting to see why he chose to ‘turn good’ and help out the others.

So most of the episode the crew look for a new place to call home. They find the town prison and decide to live it up behind the gates. After realizing the prison yard was too big of a place to monitor, they decide to move into one of the cell blocks, pairing up into the bunk beds. It seems like the perfect place to get a good night’s rest, just close your cell door and know that nothing can get in!

The episode was going to good, so the men decide to go hunting in the prison and look for the cafeteria. The prison is swarming with zombies who apparently like to play dead on the prison floor. When Maggie and Glenn separate from the group, Hershel (her dad) turns the corner to look for her. He decides to take the short cut by stepping over a zombie, the zombie wakes up at the smell of his tasty old man leg, and bites a chunk out of his calf. It was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen, I don’t even want to write about it, because then I would have to visualize it.

The crew grab Hershel and run into what seems to be the cafeteria, oh that was an easy find! Rick has no choice but to literally chop his leg off from the knee down. The infection will spread in minutes if not seconds, Rick doesn’t waste any time, this was also a scene you don’t want to watch if you have a weak stomach. So Hershel doesn’t have a leg anymore, and apparently there’s a group of prisoners still alive.

This group looks hardcore. Glen Mazzara (Showrunner) talks more about the lost prisoners on www.EW.com

“This group of prisoners saw the outbreak happen in their prison almost a year ago and guards were turning on prisoners and prisoners were tuning on guards,” says Mazzara. “Imagine a zombie movie set in a prison. These are the sole survivors of that movie. And they’ve been locked up with each other for almost a year, and now suddenly they’re freed by Rick and Daryl and the group and have had no idea what’s happened to the rest of the world. Part of our thinking was, there were so many people during the Katrina disaster that were trapped. There was this one hospital where people were trapped and just waiting for help. That’s who these guys are. They’ve been waiting almost a year for help. And help never arrives. And they end up meeting Rick and the group and being set free and they have no idea what’s happened out there in the larger world, so in a way they are sort of like Rip Van Winkle waking up in the middle of a horrible apocalyptic nightmare.”
