The Walking Dead Complete Series 1-7 DVD Box Set
A whole bunch of characters died tonight, but only one was anyone we were familiar with. I had to look up his name since we haven’t seen much of Carol’s old fling lately. Tobin shows up just in time to die from a fever caused by the Saviors’ zombified weapons. He turns and starts feasting on unsuspecting Hilltop folk, all of whom are extras we’ve literally never seen before.
This is so stupid and annoying. The Walking Dead introduced a handful of new characters tonight just to kill them off. One was a…doctor lady maybe? But they didn’t have a doctor at Hilltop so I’m not sure who she was. She yelled at Siddiq a bunch for no reason, so that’s something. Zombie Tobin snuck up on her and killed her the same way he killed his first victim, because Zombie Tobin has a special sneak-up-bite-the-neck technique.
Another extra praised Maggie’s leadership (something we’re getting a bunch of because the show really wants us to know how Tough Maggie is and what a Good Leader she is, so get ready for lots of exposition to that effect) and later succumbed to his wounds, also turning into a zombie. All hell breaks loose…
…and a bunch more extras we don’t know and don’t care about are killed. How tragic. I’m just so heartbroken that that one guy in the bed upstairs is a goner. Man I loved that guy, he was so…uh…brave and stuff. Such a decent man, hate to see him go that way. I’m gonna name him Ralph. Poor Ralph. They took you too young, Ralph.
It’s a cruel universe, folks. I guess that’s why you should post guards. Like, seriously AMC, your writers have concocted an entire episode built around the idea that these hardened survivors of the zombie apocalypse wouldn’t even post guards and lookouts to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen.
Speaking of posting guards, I guess in this particular episode there were also no guards posted on the prisoners, because that stupid kid Henry is able to just go up to them and demand to know who killed his brother. This kid may be the dumbest kid The Walking Dead has ever seen (and that’s saying something.) Instead of standing outside the cage and demanding to know his brother’s killer he opens the cage and goes in. Because one kid can absolutely stop thirty-eight fully grown men from escaping all by himself. Also, how is it that Henry has the key? Who gave him the key? Do they just leave it lying around?
