The Walking Dead (S5E13) -- "Forget" -- 3/8/15





Rick and the group continue to acclimate to their new surroundings. Will they be able to go back to normalcy? Better yet, what is normal now?


Episode 13 of 16

I'm really not liking where the show seems to be going with Rick's group becoming the bad guys.

Rick is going to be the creepy Joe Biden/john Travolta of Alexandria.

Carol's intimidation scene was equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

The wild horse being brought down when cornered had me briefly worried that Daryl might die.

The Kevin Spacey impression was the best, followed by Brad Pitt.

I thought this was a pretty good episode actually. I like that we're seeing the characters adapting to life inside the walls in different ways and it makes sense that they'd be restless, on edge, and suffering from PTSD after all they've been through. It'll be interesting to see where it goes from here, but I don't imagine the peace will be long-lasting.

Even though it was really messed up I really loved the scene with Carol threatening the boy. Not crazy about the new love interest storyline for Rick though.

Hard to say if that's what's really going on or not. You're dealing with people who have been out there in the real world with a constant threat on their lives, whether it be the walkers or other survivors. After Woodbury, Terminus, the Hospital, and the Marauders can you blame them for being suspicious of these new people? All I've seen so far is them taking precautions to protect themselves in case things go south. And it's not even that they're just worried about the inhabitants of the town...they're also worried about people that might come to invade the town and don't want to be sitting ducks.

I think it was the writers trying to show to the viewers and to Daryl that no matter how strong or how fast the horse can run "out there", eventually, it will be attacked and killed by zombies. That is why Daryl was a bit more accepting of joining the group. Plus, it was a black horse so it was doomed anyways.

Is it mean of me to hope there is a town bully that punches Carl in the face?

The street Rick walks by when waving to Jessie and her husband at the end of the episode was named "Morgan"

It stuck no one as suspicious that Carol, Daryl and Rick kept going on those little sojourns.

Kind of. Normally, I would've agreed, but they haven't been writing his character anywhere near as annoying as he used to be. Could be just due to less screen time, though.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Foreshadowing? I can't imagine it's an accident.

Carol mentioned that she told them that they were taking her out to show her how to shot.

Mostly, they're just being pragmatic, which I'd guess a lot of people are actually happy about. If they weren't pragmatic at this point, people would be complaining quite abit and commenting endlessly on how stupid they are.

The only thing I don't like is Rick trying to put the moves on the doctor's wife. I know he's changing, but given who he was before and after everything he went through with Shane and Lori, it just doesn't seem like something Rick would do after a few days. In no way am I saying that makes the show bad, though. It's a different direction for the character, and one I'm not enjoying so far.

The doctor jerk didn't come back with Rick's drink, no wonder he wants the wife now.

I hear what you're saying, but I think that they had to do something different or this show had a chance of becoming repetitive. If they went to this new neighborhood and the people there turned out bad like The Governor or Terminus, then it would have been same old same old for our group.

I actually wish they would divide the group and have only some of them adapt to the new surroundings, and the others are forced to leave. It would create a great dramatic dynamic to see people like Sasha who just can't live that 'normal' life again compared to a Glenn/Maggie who would welcome a chance to live a normal married life. Plus it would be a way to cut out half of the group as I still think the group is too big and hurting some good character development.

And what happened to Father Gabriel????

I think that their caution is realistic and reasonable. There hasn't been another enclave of survivors that were on the level. It's obvious that Alexandria is no different.

From a little after the midpoint of the 2nd season onward, there has been a sporadic and unpredictable treatment of Rick's character. The writers appear to morph the character to fit the needs of the plot lines of the moment. Some have defended this treatment as some kind of complex character development/transition. LOL

Tip to people in the Walking Dead universe: NEVER let Carol watch after your kids.

Was that in the show? I guess I missed it.

Well shit now Rick's just a jerk.
