The Walking Dead Recap: “No Sanctuary” (Season 5, Episode 1)

The Walking Dead has never really been about the dead. It’s about the living, and the myriad ways in which people adapt (or don’t) to a new world order, one that thrives on chaos and death. Even the credits in season five reflect the new world; candles dribble wax and axes drip blood, buildings crumble under nature’s influence, crows light in trees waiting for corpses to rot. There’s no nostalgia for the past here, no remaining love for order and beauty. As a wise person utters in this episode, “It’s time to return to our regularly scheduled shitstorm.”

The opening sequence of the season five opener calls to mind a haunting statement from the final episode of season four: “The more people become part of us, the stronger we get.” In a flashback, Gareth (whose name I apparently spelled incorrectly last season) and Mary, trapped inside the cargo container and flickering in dying candlelight, desperately ask themselves what they are now – who they’re becoming. As in season four, nobody really knows who they are in this post-apocalyptic mess, and as people flail, scrabble to get a grip on normalcy, things get messy.

Back in the present, our band of increasingly morally ambiguous outlaws prepares to fight its way out of the shipping container. They’re ready to go out swinging, but aren’t prepared for a smoke bomb dropped through the roof. It incapacitates them just enough to allow the cannibals to bind and carry Rick, Glenn, Bob, and Daryl to the killing trough, along with four others who don’t belong to us. As the eight men kneel, prone, in front of the metal trough, burly men in plastic raincoats first knock them unconscious, then slit their throats, gushing blood into the trough. First one, then the next, creeping ever closer to Glenn. The viscous fluid pools around the drain as our quad of men watches, helpless. Just as the butcher reels back to take a mighty swing at Glenn’s head, Gareth shows up to ask for their shot count. “I’m sorry, it was my first roundup!” the second butcher says, distracting everyone for long enough to save Glenn’s life. In the midst of chaos, it is in fact bureaucracy, red tape, a “required quota” that saves our protagonists.

Bob tries to talk Gareth down – he’s the nice one. Rick, on the other hand, eyes him with utter rage and contempt. Gareth is after the bag of guns they stashed in the woods, and as he holds a wickedly sharp knife a millimeter from Bob’s eye, Rick gives him the info he needs. It contains some AK-47s, an arsenal of other weapons, and a machete with a red handle. “That’s what I’m gonna use to kill you,” he tells Gareth – and you know what? I wouldn’t fuck with Rick at this point. The man is hardened and he’s not kidding.

And suddenly, the world explodes. Read more

The Walking Dead Recap: “The Grove” (Season 4, Episode 14)

Well. This week’s episode of The Walking Dead was a doozie, eh? When I woke up on Monday morning and googled The Walking Dead, the first few headlines to appear were “Did AMC go too far?” and “Was last night’s episode a misstep?” Due to some Facebook and Instagram spoilers I was pretty certain we were going to see Lizzie bite the dust. Following Alanna Masterson (@lucytwobows), as it turns out, led to following Lauren Cohan (@laurencohan), and their creepy Instagram fans (“PERF!” “Ugh WHY CAN’T I BE HER?!?!?!”) gave some stuff away. If it’s any consolation to those of you who think the show “overstepped,” it also fell short of what the books did here.

The episode opens on a seemingly serene scene (I’m feeling onomatopeoic today, apparently): the camera watches from inside a dusty window as two girls scramble about in the yard; a staticky record croons, and a kettle crescendos to a boil. I dunno about you, but I spent this scene squinting at my screen, trying to decide if this was play or chase – or some combination of the two. How right I was.

After the credits, we cut to Carol and Lizzie watching over Tyreese as he sleeps on the railroad tracks. Lizzie matter-of-factly tells Carol she could take Judith if there’s trouble…urgh. When Lizzie asks, Carol tells her about Sophia (remember Sophia, the reason for shitty, terrible season 2?). “She didn’t have a mean bone in her body,” Carol says. “Is that why she isn’t here now?” inquires Lizzie. This kid who’s so out of touch with humanity somehow hits that nail right on the head: only the mean survive the apocalypse. Read more

The Walking Dead Recap: “Inmates” (Season 4, Episode 10)

I’ve been alternating The Walking Dead with True Detective and House of Cards (both of which, let’s be frank, are much better). Paired with the rapidly melting eighteen inches of snow that blanketed the east coast last week, this television trio makes for a very…intense February. Of all the shows I’ve recapped, I take the fewest notes on The Walking Dead; I can best guess what’s happening next and I have a sturdy handle on what the writers are doing. No idea if this is because I’ve been paying attention for three years now, or if the teleplays are particularly transparent, or what.

Either way, this week’s “Inmates” tries for an overarching theme about hope, about the prison of the mind. Now that they’re out of the physical prison, the scattered remains of Rick’s crew have to tackle their freedom and reevaluate their respective states of mind. The episode begins with a voiceover from Beth (a character I find immensely boring): she’s reading a journal addressed to her dead mother (R.I.P). You’ve just got to have hope! she’s telling us. Daryl, her sole companion in the escape, isn’t having it. That gent has no time or space for hope. We’re watching these characters revert to their original states – and it’s not very exciting. The key to keeping your audience interested is to move your folks in new directions, not to sweep them back to the beginning again. Beth and Daryl encounter the scene of a massacre, walkers consuming the flesh of some former prison inhabitants. A baby shoe lies abandoned in the center of a pile of viscera. As almost anybody would, Beth totally loses her shit – and Daryl stares impassively. We’ve all got our coping mechanisms.

After ten minutes and the reassurance that Daryl made it out (let’s face it, he’s the show’s biggest damn hero at this point), the writers bounce us over to Tyreese, Lizzie, and Mika. Tyreese has Judith, who’s very much alive, as Reddit guessed and I said last week. Let’s just pause this for a moment to give the show (and actor Brighton Sharbino, who also is on this week’s episode of True Detective) some mad props for depicting a child sociopath. When the four of them pause to camp, Lizzie spies two baby bunnies inside a log and stabs them to death with her knife. Her face displays avid curiosity, willful determination, and nothing else.  Read more

The Walking Dead Recap: “Live Bait” and “Dead Weight” (Season 4, Episodes 6 and 7)

It’s been a crazy few weeks, but I’d never leave you hanging. November marks the start of the mid-season build to a final climax, and who better to catalyze it than the Governor? “Live Bait” finds him collecting a weakened family to use as such, and “Dead Weight” finds him ridding himself of, oh, you know, dead weight. And oddly enough, of the two, “Live Bait” feels unevenly paced and strangely written; I get that we’re supposed to think of the Gov as an antihero, but the writers pushed a little hard on the pity buttons. In this Sunday’s “Dead Weight,” though, we got him back in his full, psychopathic force.

Two weeks ago, The Walking Dead picked up from the end of season three, just as the Governor slaughtered his flock and drove away in the pickup. The writers give us a brief montage of the Gov’s activities since he left the Prison crew. He stares blankly into a fire as a walker stumbles through it, moaning and reaching. Martinez, ever the protector, shoots the walker, shaking his head. The Governor awakens in the morning to find he’s all alone with the embers – nobody wants him. What to do now? Obviously, he crashes through the Woodbury gates and lights the town on fire. Through Woodbury’s formerly idyllic streets shamble walker after walker, oblivious to the flame, oblivious to the Governor. As the days go by, the Governor gets weaker, slower, his hair scraggly and unkempt. He stands staring at a barn on which mourning people have scrawled messages: “We found Ken Jones,” “Brian Heriot,” messages from lonely people who want to let someone know their friends and family have died.

Just as he’s nearing the end of his proverbial rope, he looks up to see a little girl peering out a window. He climbs the building’s stairs to investigate and discovers two women, a little girl, and an old man with a respirator. He tells them the abbreviated story of Woodbury, tells them “the man in charge just lost it.” He gives them the name “Brian Heriot,” linking himself inextricably with the dead.

“When my girls were born, that’s when I finally figured out what it was to be a man,” the dying patriarch says, wheezing through his oxygen tube. Meghan, the little girl the Governor spotted in the window, doesn’t talk since “the shit hit the fan,” and her dying grandfather appeals to the Governor to go find her Backgammon (I think?) set. Maybe she’ll speak again, he thinks.

Upstairs, on a mission for Meghan’s game, the Governor finds bullets, a prosthetic leg, and an eyeless, limbless walker in the bathtub. Tara had been trying to kill the zombie, and nobody understood why he kept coming back. Honestly, of all the frustrating aspects of this show, this one irks me the most. What year is this? 2011? In what alternate universe have people not heard of zombies? In what world do people not have ANY prior knowledge of this mythology? At least acknowledge it, guys. COME ON. Read more
