The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 9: After – Recap

The Walking Dead Season 4 is back and my weekly recaps are back with it! As with every recap, you can except me to add my own blend of comedy to an otherwise dramatic (or at least attempting to be dramatic) episode. In “After” we learn definitively if The Governor will be back and continue to menace, Carl and Michonne face off to see who is the better (or worse) drama queen, and very importantly we learn the valuable lesson that it’s not a good idea to abscond on a hunt for chocolate pudding!

The Walking Dead Season 3 Finale: Welcome to the Tombs – Recap

Spoiler Alert! Just as I predicted, Allen died. On a more important note, if you don’t want to know the fate of the important characters then I strongly suggest you watch “Welcome to the Tombs” before reading this. You’ve been warned.

Walking Dead Season 3: This Sorrowful Life – Recap

Spoiler Alert! Allen’s son Ben gets shot and nobody really noticed or cared. On a more important note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled then I strongly suggest you watch “This Sorrowful Life” before reading this. You’ve been warned.

Walking Dead Season 3: Prey – Recap

Spoiler Alert! Rick is in this episode for all of 5 minutes, if that. On a serious note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled then I strongly suggest you watch “Prey” before reading this. You’ve been warned. I don’t like this. I don’t like this at all. Three episodes now. It’s been three episodes in a row that I’ve felt bad for Andrea and I don’t like it one bit. Prior to season 3, the first time I felt anything but contempt for Andrea was during the season finale where she fought tooth and nail to survive. Albeit with a little help from Michonne but it was still an endeavor worthy of respect. Prey certainly has shades of Beside the Dying Fire and that’s what made it such a fantastic episode. On top of my reluctant Andrea admiration, I gained a new respect for Milton. It seems like it was just the previous episode that I had labeled Milton as “meek”, but in Prey he definitely grew a pair and stood up to The Governor. Tyreese also showed that despite his propensity for mediating conflict, he’s no push over.

Walking Dead Season 3: Arrow on the Doorpost – Recap

Spoiler Alert! The only thing that died in this episode was my attention span. I kid, I kid, I sincerely enjoyed it. On a serious note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled, then I strongly suggest you watch “Arrow on the Doorpost“ before reading this. You’ve been warned. The Governor is trying to get Rick all liquored up. I’ve seen enough 16 & Pregnant to know where this is going.While Arrow on the Doorpost doesn’t have the emotional impact of Clear, it’s still entertaining to watch The Governor show Rick that rumors of him being a sadistic prick have not be exaggerated. Arrow on the Doorpost is essentially the calm before the storm as both sides gear up for the inevitable. For those who missed seeing Daryl last episode, you get to see him bond with Caesar as they kill some stray walkers while Milton and Hershel do some bonding of their own. Then there’s Andrea who, try as she might, can’t seem to do anything worthwhile. Even zombies faint when Daryl’s around

Walking Dead Season 3: Clear – Recap

Spoiler Alert! The guy from Snatch is in this episode! No, not Jason Statham. On a more serious note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled, then I strongly suggest you watch “Clear” before reading this. You’ve been warned. While I Ain’t No Judas gave Andrea her moment in the sun, Clear focuses on the trio of awesome; Rick, Carl, and Michonne, who take a field trip which leads them to Rick and Carl’s hometown. Believe it or not we not only see Michonne open up a little bit, but we actually see Michonne smile! That’s right, her face is capable of doing other things besides snarl! Clear isn’t all smiles though, a lot of fans took issue with Rick and Co. not stopping to pick up the desperate hitchhiker. I’m sure Lori would have convinced Rick to help the poor guy out. Oh wait. Her last waking moments were spent being carved like a Jack O’ Lantern. Arguably, all because Rick decided to make nice with some inmates. But I digress, they’re on a mission to assemble an arsenal of weapons and their first stop is the police station…

Walking Dead Season 3: I Ain’t No Judas – Recap

Spoiler Alert! The memory of our beloved T-Dog was honored in this episode. The number of times his name was spoken dwarfed the amount of lines he had during his brief existence. On a more serious note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled, then I strongly suggest you watch “Home” before reading this.   If you were unaware, I Ain’t No Judas is an Andrea centric episode. Andrea finds herself in a bit of a dilemma, her new friends can’t make nice with her old friends, and she’s caught in the middle. She attempts to recruit Milton to help her and he demonstrates that he was clearly a hall monitor in his youth; reporting directly to The Governor that Andrea asked him to help her escape from Woodbury. When she does arrive at the prison she quickly realizes that she hasn’t exactly been missed and that her friends at the prison are a cocktail of drama. 

Walking Dead Season 3: Home – Recap

Spoiler Alert! Again, no important characters were harmed in filming of this episode. On a more serious note, this recap contains heavy spoilers. Point being, if you don‘t want your precious Walking Dead experience spoiled, then I strongly suggest you watch “Home” before reading this.   And here I thought that Rick going ballistic in the last episode was the height of his insanity. Nope! Rick is continuing his descent into madness and now he’s chasing his hallucinations of Lori around. His own crazy leads him to go wondering around outside of the prison’s perimeter fence among a bunch of walkers who surprisingly don’t even bother him. I suppose crazy isn’t the most pleasing to their pallet. Now, I realize that prison life can make a man lonely but Rick has taken it to a whole ‘nother level. It’s safe to say that Rick’s marriage must have had some serious problems, even before the dead started walking, if he can’t even tell the difference between how his wife embraced him and well, essentially nothing. Hmm, something’s off. I remember Lori using a lot more tongue.
