The Walking Dead returns with heart pounding action…unless you’re a zombie. Then you have no heart.
February is known for being that time of year when you snuggle up close those that are the most important to you and paint the town red. By “those that are the most important to you” I am obviously talking about the remaining members of your Zombie Apocalypse group. And by “paint the town red” I mean the excessive amount of head shots that you and your group are unleashing on the hordes of undead that are in constant pursuit of you and your group. The problem with the Zombie Apocalypse is not really so much with the zombies, but more about the people that have changed to fit in to this new world paradigm that they find themselves in. People stake out their places in the world and will fight to the death to hold on to that. Sometimes that is a great and noble thing, but in this world it is usually followed by a maniacal mad man that is looking to reign down death and destruction on anyone in his path. Welcome to a day in the life of Rick Grimes (AKA “Officer Friendly”).
Storyline: The dead walk the earth. There is no real answer to why they do, they just do. Bites are a death sentence and the only way to ensure that your friends and family do not come back as “walkers” is with a well-placed shot to the head. This is the world that we live in now. But not everyone has been turned. Rick Grimes (Lincoln) and his group have been on the run and looking for a place to call “home” for the last year. They have finally found that home in the form of a prison that the group had to clear of zombies to make safe. But a rival group in the town of Woodbury is not happy with Rick and his people being in their backyard. So an all-out war is being waged between the two factions and many, if not all, of those in the fight may lose their lives in an attempt to hold on to what they feel like is theirs. It’s a dangerous new world, and zombies are the least of your worries.
SPOILER: This poster makes me think that poor little Carl is about to take one to the dome. You know, he lost an eye in the comics...but the show has deviated so far from most of those story lines that it might not happen. Dale lost a leg in the comics, not Hershel. Michonne is the one that the Gov physically abused (raped) and held captive, not Maggie. Their stay on the farm was brief, not lasting months. Shane dies in the first comic, not so much further into the story.
The show has a way of making good on the events that took place in the comics but often changing the timelines or the character that the event happened to. So, as the poster suggests that there will be "an eye for an eye", maybe Rick is the one that is going to have his peeper popped? Beats him having his arm cut off (like he did in the comics).
