Oh my goodness, guys! That mid-season premiere was intense!
You don't know what I'm talking about? Haven't seen it yet? Then stop right here. If you've seen the episode, read on.
Caution: Spoilers Ahead!
So, The Walking Dead definitely didn't disappoint with its return to television in the Season 6, Episode 9 mid-season premiere. I mean, TWD is a pretty violent show. Of course. We all know that, but this episode was pretty crazy.
In this episode, you've got a rocket launcher, a giant lake fire, a lot of deaths and close calls. I think the craziest part of the episode was the constant death after death after death. Geez! We lost Sam, Jessie and Ron pretty much at the same time. Then Carl literally got his eye shot out. That sentence cracks me up because it reminds me of the whole "You'll shoot your eye out!" from A Christmas Story.
Let's face it though. Sam wouldn't have lasted a day outside of Alexandria. Plus, he was just super annoying. He would've slowed everyone down. It's basically his fault that his mother and older brother got eaten alive by zombies. The even more frustrating part? That whole situation could've been prevented. Father Gabriel was going to take Sam to his church for safety along with Judith. Sam refused to go and wanted to stay with the rest of the group. Someone should've made that whiny kid go with Father Gabriel. Ugh! Anyone else not a fan of Sam?
So, while we're in shock at multiple characters dying at the same time, we see Ron pull a gun and point it toward Rick. BAM! Michonne to the rescue! She runs Ron through with her katana causing Ron to fire a bullet. We see that the bullet took out one of Carl's eyes before he collapses. Is he dead? What? Rick picks him up. Michonne covers Rick as they run back toward Alexandria for cover. Then the epic battle for Alexandria begins! Everyone goes out and fights the zombies! Maggie and Glenn are reunited! Yes! At the end of the episode, we discover that Carl isn't dead. It would be shocking though if he was, right?
I'm wondering if an important character will be killed off soon. I mean, Jessie was sort've important since she was Rick's love interest and her character starting developing more through past episodes. It was close with Glenn. I'm wondering if there will be plans to kill off Daryl soon. If he will be killed off at all? I'm sorry, Daryl Dixon fans. It would be a great twist if Daryl died out of the blue. He's a fun character, but his death would make a giant impact on the show since he has such a giant fan base. He can't live forever.
What did you guys think of the mid-season premiere? Which character do you think will die next?
JEFF - I love Star Wars, Star Trek DS9 and TNG, The Flash, Arrow, Equilibrium, anything Christopher Nolan does, The Terminator, Back To The Future, RPGs especially Mass Effect and Dragon Age, martial arts movies, and Bantha Milk!
