Is it possible to forget how to sleep? Is it? Boy, do I need some sleep. I have been wide awake since 7: AM…two days ago. I think I feel a yawn coming up…nope, false alarm. Now, I truly feel like a zombie… In the beginning there was nothing. That is lovely, but how about some damn sleep?! This feels like someone stole the Sun and the Moon. That seriously makes no sense. Hmm…Guts.
No guts. No glory. Winston Churchill once said, “Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities…because it is the quality which guarantees all others.” However, Alexander Hamilton believed that everyone is selfish and out for themselves. Rick’s new pal, Glenn (Steve Yeun), is short of this argument. Or is he? During this episode, Glenn became a great source for Rick. Clearly, it makes sense to state that everyone in this show is out for themselves, but who can they trust. Who can they rely on? For now, they have to try and trust each other but with caution. Besides… a plan must be structured, followed, and executed. A code means nothing. As Rick managed to escape from his previous devastating encounter, he rendezvoused with new comers: Andrea (Laurie Holden), Marle Dixon (Michael Rooker), Morales (Juan Gabriel Parejas), T-Dog (IronE Singleton), Jacqui (Jeryl Prescott) and last but not least Glenn. These were six people that were not on the same page but were at a slightly better pace than Rick. After all, one (in this case six) must stay ahead of the game. “Battles are won by slaughter and maneuver… The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver, the less he demands in slaughter,” once said Winston Churchill. After a moment of misunderstanding and comprehension, a plan elaborated a la Shaun of the Dead but with brute force. A person fantasizing about necrophilia would absolutely feel hatred towards these individuals at this moment. When I see a 1960s Ford Mustang getting destroyed during a scene in anything film related, I tend to get devastated and aggravated then start cussing up a storm at the screen; this is when you know you are infatuated with something. People with necrophilia fetishes are not short of this argument. Ready to rock & roll, their plan was magnificent because it proved to be highly effective. However, the rain unjustified the plan’s execution. Just when I thought it cannot rain all the time…this happens. But there was no need to fear. At least Rick and Glenn had the greatest instrumental method for an escape—legs. That and fast wheels.
There was hope after all. The hope for Rick to congregate with his family inched closer by the hour—miles per hours. I wish I could state that there was no reason for him to be alarm, but I cannot. To Rick’s knowledge, missing picture frames were the only clues to their whereabouts. If only he knew that his wife and child were alive and kicking. If only he knew that his partner, Shane, was alive as well. However, if he and his family ever get the chance to reunite in the near future, Rick should be dispassionately pleased with Shane for taking care of his family during his absence. I know what you are asking yourselves, “Why would Rick be dispassionately pleased with Shane?” Well, I will tell you why. Shane was being extremely generous by protecting Rick’s family because that is what partners do; they look out for each other. One hand covers the other. However, one opposite attracts the other. “Hey, by opposite do you mean when a man and a woman are attracted to each other they will end up having sexual intercourse?” Umm… what was it that Sarah Palin used to say? Ah, yes… “You betcha!”
My only quibble is that I am now the bearer of the jigsaw puzzle. Something is seriously wrong here. If Shane and Lori are together now, this means that Rick was in the hospital for a period of six months to year. However, this would not make any sense because Rick would not be alive at the moment for lack of nutrients. Keep in mind that when Rick woke up he was the only living person inside that hospital. Secondly, Shane’s and Loris’ relationship does not look fresh for a second. This can only mean one thing and one thing only. This can possibly mean that Lori has been having an affair with Shane while he and Rick were patrolling inside the squad car when the town was overrun by the real walking dead—civilians.
Hmm…My theories have not failed me yet, but Come whatever may…
I give this badboy a – 5/5
