The Walking Dead: Claimed

Whether it is intentional or a matter of oversight, I wish the producers would change the opening sequence.  The opener makes me long not for the “claimed” but for things I wish the survivors could re-claim – Sophia, Hershel, Dale, Otis and his family, the Farm, the feeling of peace and solitude they felt while there.  I know that won’t happen, but there are some things I just miss and the opener is a constant reminder.  The reclaimed thing that I was most happy to see?  Carl’s smile.  Like Rick, I was grateful for his laughter. It felt good to know that Carl is able to talk, happily, about memories he had before the plague. Instead of a man-child, Carl was just a child, this week.  I am glad “mother” Michonne was able to make it safe for him to have and share those memories.

Michonne, the cheese thing? Not funny.  My heart dropped at the thought of Michonne becoming a growling, flesh ripping zombie, and hoped the canned cheese dripping and the snarling weren’t an indication of things to come. The silver lining is how that scene was used to help Carl and Michionne on their road to emotionally healing one another.   Even if it’s all in my head, I prefer to see the family with Rick, Carl, and Michionne forming.  It’s the closest to normal this show has been in a long time and I think we could all use a little happiness.  As it is, there are times when Rick needs saving, from himself and others.

Rick and the scavengers?  What in the name of Karma keeps drawing the worst of the worst to Rick?  How is it that the others are found by good people, and he appears to draw the attention of the likes of Shane, the Governor, and whoever else is one step away of insanity?

Abraham Ford? THANK YOU! Last week I questioned if Rick could be viewed as a failed leader.  This week I marvel at how great a leader he was given what he had to work with, folks.  Glenn went from being a true hero to a true asshole in a matter of a week.  Yeah, I get it, he loves Maggie, in his heart knows she’s alive, he wants to be reunited with her, he would never desert her.  Keep the following in mind: walkers roaming free, people at risk, chance for survival of entire the race.  Had he chosen to simply keep moving?  No problem.  That he chose to start a fight with the man who saved him instead of leaving him on the road passed out?  IDIOT!  Like Rick, Ranger Ford has his own issues, including a tomb raider clad second in command (no one believes in walker-proof clothing?) and the “scientist” who shot up the truck missing almost every walker in his path.

It can’t be easy to try to save people who are barely capable of saving themselves.
