Did You Know?


The name of this episode refers to a line spoken by Dr. Jenner in The Walking Dead: TS-19 (2010) when Jenner traps Rick and the others in the control room of the C.D.C. After finally freeing Rick and the others and giving them a chance to live, Jenner tells Rick that "there's your chance," to which Rick replies that he's "grateful." Jenner then counters that "the day will come when you won't be." The horrific events of this episode are what Jenner was referring to. See more »

Hell, ever the Smorgasbord
6 November 2016 | by hiway96See all my reviews

Stunned by the utter horror, I sat in tears, shaking by a "fantasy" TV show. A thought--why is humanity so absolutely able to conjure myriad versions of Hell, yet our visions of Heaven, beautiful as they may be, seem so vague and simplistic? For a while I sat and wondered what is wrong with us, that we are that way--that we can imagine a feast of fears but too often a bread sandwich of the happy hereafter? I tried to console myself with some anthropology & history, we've survived and thrived as a species by being especially tuned to our fears and adapting to power through them, overcome them and even fix them, year after year, over the many millenia. Maybe there was no time and inclination to really imagine Salvation in all its wonder when the darkness here was real and pervasive. And the horror on display in this fantasy TV show...the walkers were the least of the problems...and really not a all. As always, we are our own demons. Hence the tears and the shaking. We feel it because we can imagine it, far more than the fun idiocy of the boogeyman zombie. Lucille is real, and always has had a hand ready to wield her. But the picnic...the gentle overcast, the wood of the table, the taste of the wine and the fruit, the crinkle of a friend's eyes, the smile of the lover across from you. That's just as real, just as imaginable. There, in just as fine detail, and more so, is the opposing vision. You can taste it, you can feel and *see* it...right there. It triumphs. "I will find you" We'll have to walk a long way in the land of the Dead, yet. But it's out there, and real.
