The Mary Sue Post: TWD Recap, JSS

Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was INTENSE, you guys. The episode started off deceptively slow, and then kicked things into high gear and didn’t wind down until the credits rolled. After my meh reaction to Fear the Walking Dead, I’ve loved that the first two episodes of the show ran at fast pace with tons of action. But, I’m breaking all this down over at The Mary Sue. I’d love it if you’d join me over there and let me know what you thought of the episode in the comments! [spoilers ahead, obvs]

This week’s episode of The Walking Dead was intense, and sent us on an hour-long adrenaline rush. Before we jump in, be warned that there will be spoilers ahead, and be sure to check out the recap of last week’s episode if you haven’t already.

Starting a tad bit before the honking that diverted the walker herd being led by Daryl on his bike, this week’s episode started out pretty slow—some might even say it was a bit boring. Jessie and Ron were fighting over Ron’s behavior and whether or not Rick is a good man. Eugene and Tara were meeting the new Alexandria doctor, Denise—who, though she went to med school, was actually a practicing psychiatrist prior to the walker uprising. Maggie and Deanna were talking about planting crops. Carol was meeting with some of the other Alexandria women talking about pasta makers and quitting smoking. Carl was offering to teach Father Gabriel to fight and getting a little sad because Enid was cozying up to Ron. Carol pops a casserole in the oven, she starts the timer, looks out the window to see her friend smoking …

… and then watches her get hacked to death by a strange man with a machete…
