I continue my coverage of The Walking Dead Season 4 with my recap of Episode 10, Claimed! As with every recap, you can expect me to add my own blend of comedy to an otherwise dark episode. In Claimed we learn that Twinkies aren’t the food-stuff capable of surviving the Apocalypse, Michonne gets a rough reminder that playtime is over, Rick is left Home Alone and has to do his best Sam Fisher impression meanwhile Sergeant Abraham Mustache try to co-exist and Eugene shows up just how he’s managed to survive so long… Oh, and spoilers! I made sure to turn my dryer off this time!

I continue my coverage of The Walking Dead Season 4 with my recap of Episode 10, Inmates! As with every recap, you can expect me to add my own blend of comedy to an otherwise dramatic episode. In Inmates we check-in with The Walking Dead characters who aren’t name Rick, Carl, and Michonne. We’re treated to Beth miraculously learning to speak, Tyreese moonlighting as a babysitter, and we see the return of a couple of familiar faces and even some new mustachioed ones. And for those super fans who couldn’t wait to see Tara again, you’re in luck! Lilly fans were not so lucky….
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!
As with every recap, you can except me to add my own blend of comedy to an otherwise tense episode. This week we see Hershel show just how important he is to the group, why Carl deserves to be armed at all times, what happens when an axe meets a metal door.
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.
Spoiler Alert! Season 3 is over until Feb ’13! Also, Oscar dies in this episode. If that wasn’t warning enough, this recap is laden with even more spoilers, so if you don’t want to know what happens then I highly suggest you watch the Mid–Season 3 Finale, Made to Suffer before reading this. You’ve been warned. Back off Axel, Beth is spoken for! The Mid-Season 3 Finale, Made to Suffer manages to not only give us (or at least me) just about everything that we could have hoped for. There’s more Michonne badassary, more of The Governor being creepy, and a pointless character being killed with little flare. On the other hand, there’s of course more of Andrea being an idiot. The Mid-Season finale is cruel in that, it also drove us (or probably just me) absolutely insane by ending on an edge of your seat, cliffhanger. Well played The Walking Dead, well played. …One of them didn’t make it, can you guess who?
Spoiler Alert! The Governor’s kind of a prick. Sorry Andrea fans. This recap is laden with even more spoilers, so if you don’t want to know what happens then I highly suggest you watch Season 3: Episode 7 – When the Dead Come Knocking before reading this. You’ve been warned. Not quite the warm welcome Andrea received In When The Dead Come Knocking we get to see Rick and Carol reunite for the first time since Killer Within, when Carol was thought to have perished. It’s quite touching. So touching that this is the only time I’m going to mention it. We also see what’s going down in the town of Woodbury, i.e. Merle and The Governor, continuing to show why he’s a poor choice as a significant other for Andrea, continue to teach us why it’s beneficial to be ambidextrous. And thankfully we got to see Michonne do bad ass “Michonne” things. …Michonne would have a strong showing at Wimbledon
Spoiler Alert! Phone’s don’t have dial tones during a zombie apocalypse. Sorry to burst your bubble. This recap is laden with even more spoilers, so if you don’t want to know what happens then I highly suggest you watch Season 3: Episode 6 – Hounded before reading this. You’ve been warned. You feelin’ lucky? Well, do ya? Punk! Man, oh man! Hounded is a beautiful showcase of why Michonne absolutely secretes badassery. Not to besmirch the other characters, but if The Walking Dead was solely Michonne introducing Walkers, and the living alike, to the sharp end of her sword I would still be completely satisfied.
