Did You Know?


Lauren Cohan (Maggie) was holding a real six-week-old baby girl, in the scene where Maggie and Carl meet back up with the group but with a newborn baby. See more »


Andrea tells the Governor that she "lost" her family (parents and sister), implying that she knows her parents are dead. However, in "Vatos," Andrea and Amy speculate that their parents are still alive - that "maybe Florida wasn't hit so bad." There is no indication that Andrea knows one way or another whether her parents are alive or dead. See more »

Andrea: You called me a whore and a rugmuncher.

Killer Within
10 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, let's get this over with. In this episode: Rick dies, Merle dies, Glenn dies.

Wait…sorry. I made a mistake. Sometimes it's so hard to keep track of these things since I've read every issue of the comic, even the ones that haven't been published yet. None of these characters die in this episode, but they will in future episodes.

Every single character will die in future episodes. Also, you're going to die. I don't know that because I've read all the comics. I know that because it's common sense. Everyone dies. You will also come back to life as a zombie—more common sense.

Do you know who also came back as a zombie? The black guy. I forgot his name. He died in this episode. It really happened. It was very sad. He was a compelling character and we will miss him. But he needed to die. Because it allowed his character to develop even more. And it finished out his character arc.

His death was also essential. Because his place in the group of survivors was taken by another black guy: the prisoner who earned Rick's trust by shooting another prisoner who attacked Rick (and also happened to be black) in the face instead of shooting Rick in the face. Because according to the rules, there can only be one black guy in the group. It's like Highlander, but with black guys rather than immortal Europeans.

There was also another black prisoner for a little while. He was nice. Zombies scratched him up a little. The Hispanic guy killed him with a pickaxe, hitting him enough times to make sure his corpse looked so unappealing that the zombies would lose their appetites. Then Rick split the Hispanic guy's head down the middle with a machete.

So anyway, do you ever wonder if there are zombies who used to be celebrities lurching around?

I wonder if in the next episode, Laurie will meet Brad Pitt. And she'll get all starstruck and ask, "Hey, didn't you used to be Brad Pitt?" And Brad Pitt will respond by eating her face off.
