Hey everybody! It’s that time again. . . Zombie time. I am so happy “The Walking Dead” is back on. I have been waiting for this show to come back ever since the mid season finale. Now that it is back, I no longer feel that void in my heart. I know I am late writing about the past two episodes and I am sorry. I am here now so you can all take a deep breath.
The Mid season opener was not the greatest. I was pretty disappointed with the whole episode. Don’t get me wrong. Learning all about Michonne was my favorite part out of the whole episode. I was just not too fond of the episode being all about Carl. Carl is not on my top ten list of characters (he is also not one of my favorites in the comics), so I know this played a role into how I felt about the opener. The thing I did like is that Michonne found Rick and Carl at the end. Other than learning about Michonne and her finding Rick, not too much happened.
For the second episode that is a different story. . .
In the seasons, Shane dies when they find Hershel’s farm. In the comics Shane does not even make it that far. He dies just a little after Rick finds the group.
It All Comes To An End
Finally! Finally the show goes back down the road of the comics. I have been waiting for this day for a very long time. Like I said before, once I saw the tank, I knew the prison was going to get attacked.
I have known all along that the Governor was not a changed man. I wanted to believe that he would change, but deep down inside I knew he was far too gone. He was too much of a villain in the comics to turn into a good guy in the show. He is such a good bad guy he got these people to follow him in trying to kill Rick and the rest of the group. Brian just met these people and they are already doing what he says.
Golfing Is Fun. . . Right?
I know I am late to the party, but it looks like nothing much happened anyway.
Not too much happened with Brian in this episode. The only thing that happened was something that we were all expecting anyway. We all knew that Brian would go to his old ways and take charge of everything. He even went as far as recreating his aquarium wall of heads. It is just this time he is putting his walkers into the lake.
This was such a creepy episode. It was all about the Governor. It takes places after him shooting everyone. The two guys he spared left him in the middle of the night because they could not believe what he had done. After that happened, the Governor went back to Woodbury and set everything on fire. I take this is foreshadowing what will be happening later on in the season.
When the Governor finished burning down Woodbury, he just starts to walk around from place to place. He then came across apartments and found a family living in them. This family consisted of an elderly father, two daughters, and one of the daughters little girl. This is where it got interesting. It got interesting because I was wondering the whole time when he is going to kill them. To my surprise he did nothing to them. He helped them with anything they needed.
Korra and Unalaq/Vaatu
. . . And just like that, book two is over.
It was crazy seeing Unalaq combining with Vaatu, and then seeing them rip Raava away from Korra. Once that happened, then things really got crazy. As soon as Raava separated from Korra, Vaatu destroyed Raava. When he did that, Korra lost all connection with her past avatars (which was intense). We all know that book 2 could not have ended like that. So Korra looked deep inside herself, and with the help of Jinora, she defeated Unalaq and Vaatu. When she did this, Raava came back to life and combined with Korra, making her the avatar once again. Even though Raava and Korra became one again, it did not bring back the connection with all of the past avatars. So Korra is on her own. She is now a new avatar. With her being a new avatar, she has decided to keep the spirit portals open, so spirits and man can live as one.
There was so much in this episode I do not even know where to begin. So let me try to break it down for you.
Lizzie creeps me out (she reminds me of Billy from the comics). This episode made her more mysterious than ever before. She was trying to help out with the walkers, but as soon as she tripped, she stayed on the floor crying. Hershel had to come and save her. The thing is, when she had the walkers attention, she had a look in her eye that made it seem like she was going to kill the walker. I think later on in the season she is going to do something that is going to surprise us all.
