The Walking Dead – When the Dead Come Knocking

Q:  What’s scarier than a bloodthirsty pack of zombies?

A:  Merle with sharp interchangeable hand attachments!

Working the story up to a perfect frenzied segway into next week’s midseason finale of THE WALKING DEAD, Rick comes knocking on the Governor’s doorstep, and the Governor starts to radically up the ante on finding the location of the prison.

Hit the jump for a more in-depth recap…

Merle interrogates Glenn with a combination of knifehand and fisthand.  Not getting anywhere, he throws a walker into the room to see if it would change his mind.  The torture must have made Glenn’s other testicle finally descend, because he spontaneously turned into a total badass and took out a walker in hand-to-hand combat while tied to a chair.  Awesome.

Back at the prison, Rick saves a half-unconscious Michonne from a fate involving walkers and alot of chewing.  When she comes to, she tells Rick and the group about the existence of Woodbury and The Governor as well as Glen and Maggie’s capture by Merle. Finding out that Glen and Maggie were being held prisoner, they jump in their Hyundai Tuscon (Zombieproof  and -still- 25 MPG!) for a daytrip to Woodbury.

The Governor interrogates Maggie and ends up almost raping her which makes it strange/interesting to see how crazy this guy actually is.  Meanwhile, Milton (the scientist) performs an experiment where he sees if a freshly turned walker retains any of their human memories.  Guess what happens?  No memories.  And Andrea makes quick work of it when Milton unintelligently removes the restraints.  That right there is the difference between book smarts and street smarts, bro…

While en route to Woodbury, Rick, Michonne, Daryl and Oscar (one of the two prisoners) get surrounded in the woods by walkers.  Ducking into a cabin, Michonne necessarily kills the random guy living inside (“I’ll call the cops/I AM the cops”) and feeds him to the walkers knocking on the front door.  Escaping out the back, they finally make it to Woodbury at nightfall to plan their attack.  And based on next week’s previews, it looks like its going to be intense.

On a whole other note, maybe it’s because I think Twitter is mindnumbingly dumb, but what’s up with Chris Hardwick and his exceedingly stupid hashtags?  And furthermore, what is up with Chris Hardwick and The Talking Dead anyway?  Does a zombie show need a companion talk show to break down the complex moral conundrums and subplots?  Answer: no.  That’s what MIDWEST MARK is for.  Is MIDWEST MARK talking about himself in the third person?  Yes he is.

Stupid hashtag of the week:  #TeamPrison

More fitting hashtag of the week:  #You’reAnIdiot

Official MWTVG score: 4.5/5.  Very sad to know that it’s coming up on the midseason already…

    Dude your a total duchebag. I hope someone feeds you to zombies. Michonne needlessly killed that dude. He was a survivalist and they could have used his help.

      Dear Midwest “I suck cock” Mark, (snazzy name by the way)

      I appreciate your timely and informative feedback. I will say that there is a fine line between survivalist and batshit nuts, and that guy fell to the latter of the two. Michonne needed a little grease on her blade anyway. And while I’ll certainly consider your offer to be gourmet zombie jerky, I would much rather feed the trolls first.

      Yours truly,

      Midwest Mark
