Tonight, like every Sunday night, I prepared myself mentally for the newest episode of the walking dead. I've been hearing rumors that this particular episode was going to be of epic proportions and boy were my sources right.
First of all, whenever any silent, heart tugging moments happen within the walking dead universe, we know some serious sh*t is about to go down. Like when Lori and Rick had that moment right before the walkers crept up behind them, scattering the members of the group in different directions. While Herschel and Beth stayed conceal behind a fence, T.dog gets bitten from behind. He then escaped inside the prison with Carol, believing that God was going to help him get her to safety. From the moment he was bitten I already knew that he was going to die. That was inevitable, but still, a small part of me was hoping for some miraculous intervention. Like maybe T.dog was immune or something, but deep down I knew he was a goner. Still, I was surprised that he died in such a cruel, horrifying manner. I suppose I should be proud that this man of very few words went down in a 'blaze of glory.' Sure, up until now he was a background actor, but he proved to be a true hero in the end. R.I.P T.dog (man of little words) Carol's whereabouts are still unknown. However, Daryl finds her scarf or whatever that thing was wrapped around her head and assumes she's dead.
Then through all the chaos Lori goes into labor with no one to help but Maggie and Carl. I hated Lori as much as the next person did, but I wouldn't wish her death on anyone. It certainly veered completely away from the comics, which is fine with me to some extent. Anyways, after a few parting words to her son, Lori begs Maggie to cut the baby out of her and Maggie reluctantly complies. This scene was gore to the max and a small part of me died along with Lori. Carl put her down before she could turn and Rick broke down like a little baby when he finds out that Lori is dead. That ending was gut wrenching to me. With a heavy heart I say goodbye to Lori. Shane is waiting for you on the other side.
Dear Walking Dead writers, How dare you make me cry in a show about zombies? I am absolutely gutted...like Lori, except she's dead and I'm not. I'm proud of T.dog. He went from being a background actor, to being a hero in the end. My heart is truly broken, more so when Rick curled up and cried like a little baby. *sigh* I'll never be the same again. P.S Please don't kill Daryl. My heart can't take it. Thanks
