Welcome to another edition of The Walking Dead Chow Down. If you watched Sunday night you saw Shane killed by Carl and Rick. And why not? Shane was a… zombie?! Who saw that coming?
The Walking Dead Community (that be us!) are in slight shock. I find it interesting that two main characters were killed off the show so close together. While Shane was the loose cannon of the group with his conspiracy theories and begging Lori to run away with him, he was also the one who kept a sense of reality in the group.
Toward the end of his reign of psychopathy, he just got weird. Right? I mean, especially the last episode when he was smacking himself… what was that all about?
Here is the one thing that is annoying the hell out of me… how everybody was so damn giving with Daryl’s gun! Carl stole the gun (last episode) and failed to shoot the zombie with it (the same zombie that had Dale for a mid day snack).
Remember Shane gave Rick Daryl’s gun as he told him about what Carl said about the walker. And Rick tells Shane to keep the gun! What? It isn’t your gun to give away man! How many of you were screaming at the television like me? Turns out, it behooved the group for Carl to have the gun in the end.
All in all, some of the thought process in the show brings me to my knees and leaves me beating my head on the floor. Anyone else feel that way? It is good writing. We need to be frustrated and emotionally invested in the show or we would turn it off.
Anyway – I felt like this episode was an “Amends Episode” of sorts. There was all sorts of apologizing going on before the carnage of zombies and death. It is so ironic how a small group of people are trying so desperately to live amidst so much death.
I am also trying to figure out why certain characters are getting killed off and not Lori. UGH! Her trouble making antics are annoying… although, it will be interesting now since Shane is gone. She will no longer be able to go back and forth between Shane and Rick.
Sunday is the last episode! What is in the shadows? The future? Will anyone die in the last episode?
Also, there is a good chance I will be moving my Walking Dead segment to Mondays. Mondays get the most hits on The Walking Dead posts, but there are few comments. Looks like I’ll be staying up late on Sunday nights next season!
