Welcome back children of the corn! Well, this episode really took it up a notch. This episode was full of Carol, people being stabbed in their sleep, breakups, and Rick punching a decapitated head in the nose several times… what is not to love?
Episode 12 focused on Rick rallying everyone for an attack on Negan’s compound. While in the church, the only person who opposed Rick was of course Morgan. This was a great moment where the phrase, “you can have several seats” came into play… Before the attack, we saw Carol being Carol and making everyone cookies! How sweet! But then it headed into Carol smoking a cigarette and kissing some guy…. Hmmm. Interesting. Abraham moved out of Rosita’s house. I didn’t know they were serious to the point that they moved in together… so that happened.
Moving into the attack, they gave this guy a severed head that Rick decorated that kind of represented Gregory to get them into the compound. Next thing you know, this attack turns into a Game of Thrones episode… People are being stabbed in their sleep… from behind, in the head, on the toilet. It gets pretty hardcore. Eventually someone sees Ricks crew and they sound the alarm. As night turns into day, we see our crew picking up after they just slaughtered everyone. A man speeds out of the compound and Daryl takes him down. But a walkie talkie falls out and their is a girl on the other line telling everyone to drop their weapons because they have Maggie and… CAROL. FREAKING GREAT!
Any episode with Carol in it with more than two lines is a good episode. Seeing Carol baking,kissing, and smoking all in one episode was a lot to handle. You go girl! But I swear to God, if anything happens to her next week, I am going to do something terrible to someone. I also had a great time watching our crew turn into recon soldiers. Our characters have turned into real bad ass killers. Is that a good thing? Well some would say no, but I am here for it.
If Morgan opens his damn mouth again about not having to kill people, I am going to jump out of my skin and pass through the television… and smack him. Morgan has become the Jeb Bush of this colony. Keep your mouth shut sir. Another thing about this episode that irritated me was the fact that Carol and Maggie got captured. Why? Because they should not have been there in the first place that is why. If they weren’t going to fight, they should have stayed at home. They were just asking to get picked up.
This week’s episode MVP goes to my boo, Carol! Why? Because she is the positive light. What other character can you say is starting off the episode by making beet acorn cookies, then proceeds to kiss a man in the street, smokes a cigarette, gets sad and writes down how many cigarettes she has had in a journal, then goes off to war to kick some ass and yells at a pregnant women for being dumb? Your MVP everybody.
I will see you all next week. This better turn out good. But of course, we all know it won’t… Good luck everyone…
