Yes, You've Seen Carol From The Walking Dead on Screen Before

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: AMC Rick Grimes, King Ezekiel, and Maggie Greene might technically run things with the allied squads on The Walking Dead, but it's Carol Peletier who seems to come in on the clutch most often throughout the series. Remember how she handles the terrible business of dealing with the prison's ill population, then takes care of Lizzie, and manages to save everyone from the Terminus cannibal crew, even after being exiled and ostracized by them? That's boss behavior right there. Carol always seems to take her leave from the group just in time to position herself as an outside asset when she's most needed. She has a foresight that's increasingly rare in this generation of act-first-think-later strategists (lookin' at you, Sheriff). Ezekiel and Jerry would certainly be hobbling around looking for brains to munch on if not for her quick thinking this week, and pretty much everyone else can

October Horrors 2017 Day 26 – The Mist (2007)

The Mist, 2007.

Directed by Frank Darabont

Starring Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Laurie Holden, Andre Braugher, Toby Jones, William Sadler, and Jeffrey DeMunn.

Synopsis:

Following a vicious storm, a small town is enveloped in a mysterious mist leaving a band of survivors to seek refuge in a supermarket. Trapped in the market by monstrous creatures lurking in the mist, the group also has to contend with the growing distrust and delirium of each other that soon proves to be a bigger threat than the monsters outside.

Frank Darabont is arguably the best director when it comes to bringing the work of Stephen King to the big screen, giving us the excellent weepie that is The Green Mile and arguably one of the greatest films ever made in the form of The Shawshank Redemption.

However, Darabont wouldn’t merely confine himself to bringing King’s non-horror works to the screen, using

Former Walking Dead Actress Labels Andrea/Governor Storyline “Utter Nonsense”

A lot can happen in 99 episodes.

With The Walking Dead closing in on that big 100, there’s a tremendous amount of nostalgia and wistful reminiscence lingering over AMC’s undead juggernaut. And though the show’s ardent fanbase have cut together some truly inspired, gut-wrenching highlight reels, not to mention Entertainment Weekly’s celebratory portraits of Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and the gang raising a glass, this timely retrospective isn’t free of criticism.

Take Laurie Holden’s recent comments as an example. For three seasons, the actress played the part of Andrea, before she was ultimately killed off at the hands of David Morrissey’s demented Governor. But in the eyes of Holden, that subplot between Andrea and her manic captor was “complete and utter nonsense,” as she largely feels The Walking Dead made a mistake by deviating from Andrea’s arc in the comics.

I think the whole

It's time to face facts, The Walking Dead fans. One of your favorite characters has died. For real this time. Obvious spoiler alert. Glenn (Steven Yeun) is gone.
