Another week, another Monday and another fine episode of The Walking Dead, and compared to last week, we had a ton thrown our way. So let's get right down to it, here is our recap of last night's episode: "Hounded".
The Good: Holy cow, I did not expect to see this much packed into a single hour. I mean where does one begin? For starters, it was great to see that Lori was on the line after all when it came to the phone call. This was an awesome little piece to see on screen and it was handled in amazing fashion. I have to admit it was pretty cool to see that Emma Bell and Andrew Rothenberg were good with reprising their roles as Amy and Jim. But the whole vignette was a fine closure piece (maybe) to Rick's grief. Not to mention, good to see that Carol made it after all, finally a little good news after that brutal episode. But all of that was overshadowed by the trouble that is clearly brewing. It was good to see Merle being Merle once again, and even better to see that he has found his match in Michonne. But the two biggest surprises for me tonight, Maggie and Glenn's capture, and Andrea once more falling in "love" with a complete and utter piece of crap. If I had to imagine anyone's life before the zombiepocalypse, I get the feeling Andrea loved the bad boys because man, she can't keep her hands off of them in this show. But I digress, only because Merle's catch, has set in motion a series of events that will go beyond anything we have seen on the show so far.
The Bad: Honestly, no complaints this week. But since I have to put something down here, I think I am upset with the fact I have to wait a week for more of my favorite show.
The Verdict: Incredible episode. This bad boy was a seven layer burrito and I absolutely want more. There are darker days ahead for this show, and I cannot wait to see them.
