The Walking Dead S3 E16 Welcome to the Tombs recap

Something tells me the Governor won't be running for re-election in season 4.
Well season 3 has concluded and The Ricktatorship has suffered many losses, I'd like to take a moment of silence for these fallen warriors....
 Lori Grimes....mother of the year! Screws her husbands best friend, then haunts her husband after death....Daryl had you pegged! Dumb Bitch.

T-Dog...survived till season 3! Only to die in a prison in a world with no police....RIP bro!
 Oscar you weren't with us for very long but you choose wisely when you joined the ricktatorship....too bad you died because of Rick's hallucinations....

Axel, you are the epitome of white trash, wrongly accused and imprisoned, only to be freed during a Zombie apocalypse! The Rickopolis didn't ask for pedo bear but we got one....and just when we began to like you BAM HEADSHOT! RIP Axel
Merle, you were an asshole since we first met you on that rooftop and you never failed to do te wrong thing, it's a testament to the quality of the writers that somehow some way within 2 episodes we some how began to pity your miserable existance. Merle RIP

Milton, your experiments failed, you're a terrible liar, your faith in your friends is highly dubious and asking an old man if you can see his "stump" is just creepy....and I thought there was a chance you were gonna turn out to be an evil genious....I was wrong you were just a meek creep! RIP Milton

Andrea, I liked you, you screwed all the bad guys Shane and The Governor, you told Lori how it is, you put your sister down, you were suicidal then you became Dr Kevorkian's assistant in season 2, and finally after you found a reason to live you have to commit suicide because Zombie Milton gave you a hickey! RIP Andrea

So last night's episode didn't go the way I expected, the Woodbury militia could say the same thing! Dayum, the Governors military school has a very high dropout rate! Hey Martinez....good luck with that!
Now on to Carl....that boy has some serious problems with authority and next season's slogan may be fight the dead, fear the living and whoop your son's ass when he talks back at you! 
I wonder how Daryl would be at disciplining young Carl?????
For those wondering why Rick didn't take over Woodbury....the Prison is a much better fortification against any type of threat than a suburban concentration camp!
Of the original group we are left with Rick, Carl, Carol, Glen and Daryl MFin' Dixon! 
To all those we've lost thank you for making this show so dam great!


  1. Great Lori picture, Will. Yeah, I was highly annoyed that Lori returned as a phantasm at all. Which of the character deaths was the least upsetting? I gotta say it was T-Dog. He was heroic, but he was just... sort there. He was barely in Season 2. Talk about having ZERO character development.

    I didn't like Lori's death at all because, really, she could have escaped if she hadn't dropped the stupid pliers. Then she spends a minute or two TALKING to Milton, telling him to 'hold on', etc. instead of working on getting the pliers! It felt that that stupid horror movie cliche of looking back as you run, while being pursued by a psycho.

    Don't do that, just run, just try to get the pliers into your hands. Or, when you get one hand free attempt to kill Milton with the pliers in one shot? I mean, shouldn't undead Milton be a wimpier than average zombie, seeing as regular Milton was wimpier than your average human? I would have just said in an authoritative voice: "SIT! MILTON, SIT!" And here I thought of Angela as some kind of hardcore zombie killer.

    Axel's death. Pedophilia subplot goes BOOM! Nice writing though -- at the precise moment the audience thinks that maybe Axel is an interesting character with some potential...

    Can you imagine what Dale would have been like had he made it to Season 3? LOL! He would have surrendered to the governor, and just generally run amok. I miss Dale.

  2. Also, Carl was right to shoot that guy. With everything that was going on, the guy was NOT DROPPING HIS WEAPON. He was moving closer, and closer, and holding the gun out in front of him. I don't know if this is bad writing or not. If Carl had said, a second time, "DROP. THE. WEAPON." and the guy kept on approaching then, yeah, he would have been in the right. It must be bad writing because it seems (from Hershel's statements to Rick) that Carl just gunned the guy down. It didn't seem that way to me while watching. Bad writing and/or poor direction must be to blame.

    1. I agree! Maybe it was the angle but Carl told him to drop the gun, the boy shoulda immediately dropped it but he didn't AND it looked as if he was inching closer to Carl. To me it appeared the kid was gonna try and make a move for Carl's snow cone gun.
      Andrea's death was unexpected and the scene was not done well IMO. The tension was good but she either shouldn't have gotten free or if she did, we all know she would've been able to handle Walker Milton. So by showing her freeing her second hand as Walker Milton approached and then finding her bitten feels inaccurate to the character of Carol were in the hot seat we know Milton would've torn her apart, Andrea was a strong female character!

  3. Great summary, Will. Thanks for making me read it. I was laughing along with all of your comments. Also, thanks for getting me hooked on this show! What to do on Sunday nights now until October?????

  4. 7 months without zombies, we'll find stuff to do!! Glad you dropped by, so when are you gonna start posting more music reviews and previews?
