Last night's episode of The Walking Dead still has us reeling over here at Girls of Geek. This was one that will go down as one of the best in the series with its incredible surprises, so let's not waste anymore time and get right into our recap of last night's game changing episode:
"Killer Within". Also a quick warning, if by chance you didn't watch last night's episode, first off shame on you, second, be ready for spoilers.
The Good: Wow. That's really the only word to describe last night's episode and all the incredible things that it brought to the table. We lost Lori and T-Dog and it was done in the classiest and brutal of fashion. I honestly don't know how much I can take sometimes when it comes to the roller coaster ride of emotions this show puts us through, and last night was no exception. This really was an incredible send off for both Sarah Wayne Callies and IronE Singleton and while I am sad to see them go, yes, even Lori, somehow this shakeup of the cast seemed appropriate and these deaths I think have greater implications on the future of the series than any other have to date.
The Bad: Despite the heroic death for T-Dog, his death is not without one glaring issue; we never got to see the character's full potential. The jokes about him not having enough to do or say were well warranted over the last three years. So to see T-Dog go in stunning fashion, is still damn frustrating. Almost as if he was cut from the show because they never had any plans for him outside of standing around and having a couple of lines and quite frankly, that sucks.
The Verdict: This show has a brass pair, that's for sure. Every week we see the envelope being pushed and this week was no exception. I understand that yes, this is a show about the end of the world, but holy crap no one is safe and I think we all got comfortable after Dale and Shane died off. But judging from the preview for next week, and Rick's reaction last night, we are headed for more heartbreak and sorrow from the best show on television.
