(Spoilers ahead)

Every week, we comb with the guts from the Walking Dead, similar to a horde of hungry walkers, to create the episode’s best moments, surprises, along with other publish-apocalyptic curiosities. Now: Remedial Survivor Skills, Grief Counseling 102, and Advanced RV Repair.

Season 6, Episode 3: “Thank You”

Hello, could it be me you’re searching for? Nicholas apparently made the decision it was a few days to consider hair do inspiration from Lionel Richie.

Worst human legal rights breach: Clearly there’s no freedom of speech within the Ricktatorship because once you question his leadership, a ninja zombie will all of a sudden spawn and bite you. Should one ‘t be available, Michonne will gladly place you in your home.

That appears to be selected last: Watching TWD can occasionally seem like watching a preschool soccer match, for the reason that everybody is essentially inept. Tell individuals from Alexandria to not take out their guns, and they’ll shoot another human. Stab a master within the mind, and they’ll get bitten within the back. Attempt to flee to town, and they’ll sprain their ankles. Exactly what do they make the water?

Greatest sob story: David’s tale of meeting his wife of past three several weeks, who introduced hope and pleasure to his meaningless existence, was straight from a publish-apocalyptic Nicholas Sparks book. David’s nasty finish, however, was straight from TWD.

Not fooling anybody: Seeing the Alexandria billboard made Daryl abandon his mission and race back towards saving the Safe-Zone. He appears to actually worry about this area. Maybe it’s the . . . not a chance, it’s due to Carol.

Weirdest doppleganger: Other people spot the master that looked nearly the same as Daryl? Surely case the crew poking fun at us and never some horrible foreshadowing.

Saddest set dressing: Before the apocalypse, that pet shop had terrier young puppies for purchase! Wait . . . uh-oh . . . not again. . .

Very best in show: That big ball of fluff around the pet shop poster was the majestically goofy Bernese Mountain Dog. And just like a good dog, he brought you to definitely his stash of bones.

Most uncertain dying: I was stunned silent when Nicholas brought out a gun, thanked Glenn, and wiped out themself. Then our jaws hit the ground when his body fell onto Glenn, knocked both of them in to the horde, and switched our hero right into a tasty snack for that walkers . . . or did he? Consider the scene again. We’re not doctors, but we don’t think you are able to pull intestines from someone’s upper chest. Plus, both Glenn and Nicholas were putting on similar clothes. There isn’t any be certain that was Glenn’s shirt being ripped apart. Also, Steven Yeun wasn’t around the evening’s Speaking Dead, a convention for wiped out-off major figures, nor was Glenn within the show’s “In Memoriam” section. Still not convinced? What about a paparazzi photo showing an alive Glenn having a yet-to-be-introduced character?

Most definitely dead: The Virginia walkers are searching really, really gnarly. They’re grayer, more skeletal (have you see the one that was virtually only a ribcage?), and much more decrepit than in the past. Soon this show will undoubtedly function as the Walking Bones.

Worst buddies: Multiple everyone was eaten alive by walkers. Just one was whim wiped out. That’s cold.

Maybe it was a great day? No. Ron needed to use his AK.

Best exchange:

Michonne: Ron stated what he stated because sometimes it’s not necessary an option.

Heath: That isn’t the way we get it done.

Michonne: Because you’ve didn’t have to get it done every other way. You haven’t experienced it. Not necessarily. Nothing like Ron. Ron was available. I had been available. We all know. You do not. However if you simply don’t learn, you’ll die. We’ll.

Heath: I’ve been doing runs from the beginning, okay? I understand what it’s like . . .

Michonne: Have you ever needed to kill people because they’d already wiped out your buddies and were coming for you personally next? Maybe you have done stuff that made you are feeling scared of yourself afterward? Have you been covered in a lot bloodstream that you simply didn’t determine if it had been yours or walkers’ or perhaps your friends’? Huh? Then you definitely have no idea.

Best/worst kill: Nicholas, who not just wiped out the show’s most useless character (themself), but additionally possibly Glenn and, with this, our spirits.

Most annoying image: Glenn’s (or Nicholas’s) intestines being ripped out and feasted upon by walkers. I understand we’re still undecided about Glenn’s dying, but seriously, we can’t watch that scene and never be outraged that our favorite figures is meeting his finish so unceremoniously. If this sounds like his actual dying, it didn’t happen as they was attempting to save someone. It was not heroic. It had been just collateral damage in one screw-up.

Episode MVP: Michonne, on her no-nonsense method of remaining alive. Her speech to Heath (see above) was just as real because it will get, even though we still have no idea how she, Scott, and Heath survived the master attack around the pet shop, we assume there have been lots of headless corpses left in her own wake.

And when again, where exactly does Ron fall now around the calm/crazy scale?
