TWD Season 4: Episode 4, Indifference (Recap)


Lot of good stuff happened this episode. Let’s get to it with the recap of the “Indifference” episode.

#1: Beginning/Rick’s Discovery 

Carol and Lizzie have a talk. She tells Lizzie that she is going on a run with Rick to look for more food. Lizzie asks if Daryl is going to die. Carol tells her that he had to go far away to get the meds and bring them back. She tells Lizzie they will be back soon. Lizzie says, “Nobody has died yet. I think a lot of people are going to die. That’s what always happens. Makes me sad but, at least they get to come back.” Lizzie means that the people who die always come back as walkers. Carol responds, “Lizzie, once they come back people aren’t who they were.” Lizzie goes on to say, “Yeah? But they are something. They are someone. I’m little now. If I don’t die, I’ll be big. I’ll be me. But I’ll be different. That’s how it is.” Yeah Lizzie is kind of messed up in the head. Poor kid.
Then Carol goes on to say, “We all change. We all don’t stay the same way we started.” She tells Lizzie its more complicated than that. Lizzie tells Carol that she told her that she was weak. Lizzie isn’t weak now. She is strong. She says to Carol, “So I am telling you what I think.” Carol asks Lizzie what she should when she is faced with danger. Lizzie answered her with “Run as fast as I can.” Carol adds, “You run and run until your safe. And if its your life or your sister’s life, you can’t be afraid to kill. You understand?” Lizzie replies with yes. Carol tells Lizzie that she is strong and that she will live. She adds, “You, me, and your sister are going to survive. Know it.” She asks Lizzie where is her knife. Lizzie lifts up her shirt and shows it to her. Carol says to put her t-shirt behind it so she will able to get to it quickly. Lizzie replied, “Yes mom. I mean ma’am.” Carol told her not to call her mom. Lizzie called her mom by accident. I guess that made Carol a little bit uneasy.
Carol asks Lizzie, “What is it?” Lizzie says, “I’m not afraid to kill. I’m just afraid.” Carol tells her that she can’t be afraid. “How?” Lizzie asks. Carol answers her back with, “You fight it and you don’t give up. And then one day you just change. We all change.”
As Rick gets ready for the supply run, he decides to go back to Cell Block A to retrace Carol’s steps when she killed both Karen and David. He realizes that Carol killed them in their beds while they were still alive. She killed each one of them with her knife and dragged their bodies outside from Cell Block A. Then she burned them. So they didn’t die from the virus symptoms and turned. But why would she kill them while they were still alive? He goes back to the car and opens up his knife bag. He notices that one of his knifes is missing. Carol took one of Rick’s knifes and used it to kill Karen and David. I don’t understand why Carol changed. I know there is a reason for it. Carol is still a caring person. Maybe she was fed up with it. Maybe she felt if she killed Karen and David who were the first ones who were sick with the virus she would stop the issue. But it will only cause more problems for her. She has to live with that guilt for as long as she fights to stay alive. I think Rick is going to get the to bottom of this and ask Carol why she did it.
#2: Back in the Woods/Most Awkward Car Ride Ever: Carol & Rick 
Meanwhile back at the woods, Tyreese washes his shirt covered in walker blood in the river. Michonne says that the school is still miles away. Bob says that they need a new ride. Tyreese is certain that his sister and everyone else that is sick is dead. Bob just tells Tyreese to keep on moving. Tyreese feels like if they keep on moving it won’t solve anything. People will still die. That is not the type of positive mentality to have there dude.
Carol and Rick are in the car heading to some places to look for supplies. Carol told Rick that Maggie wanted to come. Rick told her that someone had to stay behind and keep watch of the others. Carol then says, “Someone you trust you mean.” I kind of understand why Rick took her along for the supply run. In a way he doesn’t trust her staying back at the prison, but at the same time, he  wanted her to come so he could have a heart to heart chat with her.  I think Rick was going to ask Carol the reason behind her killing two people in cold blood. It would have been different if they were walkers. But she killed them in their sleep. How can she justify herself for the actions she took?
Carol explains to Rick the reason why she killed them:
“They would have drowned in their own blood. They were suffering. We needed the bodies to be gone. We needed it to stop it from spreading. They were the only ones that were sick. They were a threat. I was trying to save lives. I had to try. Somebody had to.”
Rick responded from Carol’s explanation with, “Maybe” as they head into a neighborhood a few miles out. So Carol killed them so she could stop the virus from spreading. That didn’t work out too good because there are more people sick now. I don’t think she was trying to save lives. I think she was trying to play the leader role since Rick took a break from it. I don’t know if I believe her.
#3: Michonne & Daryl/Carol & Rick
Back out in the woods, Michonne notices Daryl picking up a piece of Jasper. She jokes with him and says that the rock is a good color and it brings his eyes. Daryl told Hershel to keep an eye out for jasper so he could use them as markers. Michonne asked Daryl, “You know all of them back there?” Daryl answers, “Stay in one place for a couple of hours, you’d be surprised what you pick up.” Michonne seemed to be kind of annoyed at the fact that Daryl keeps bringing up about her not being around the prison lately. Maybe he is a little bit upset that he didn’t go with her to search for The Governor. Maybe Daryl likes Michonne. Who knows?
Carol and Rick are looking for meds (and food) in abandoned houses until Daryl and the crew come back with the antibiotics. This will help the people who are sick greatly. Making Hershel’s job a little bit more easier.
#4: Crew Finds a New Ride???/Carol & Rick Starting the Supply Run
Daryl, Michonne, Bob, and Tyreese make it to a service station. They find a mini-van underneath some shrubs. Daryl tries to hotwire the mini-van but notices it needs a battery. So they start to look for more cars around the service station. They all start to cut down some shrubs. Tyreese is going HAM on cutting the shrubs. Daryl tells him to slow down. Then a walker hand came out of the shrubs to  reach out for Daryl. A walker grabbed Bob by the neck. He screams “HELP!” as always. Bob is really starting to irk my nerves. You have a gun at least. Use it! Michonne killed the walker who had Bob by the neck. Another walker had Tyreese caught up in the shrubbery. Then Tyreese got a tight grip on the walker. Daryl and Michonne is telling Tyreese to let the walker go, but he doesn’t listen. He pulled the walker out of the shrubs. The walker is basically on top of him. Daryl pulls the walker off of Tyreese. Bob finally uses his damn gun and kills the walker. Michonne asks Tyreese, “Why in the hell didn’t you let go?” Tyreese is acting more irrational than usual. Could it be that he is showing signs of turning in to a walker? Did he get bit while that massive walker kill he did before he made it to the woods?
Carol and Rick enter into a house to start looking for supplies. A walker comes down the stairs towards Carol’s way. Rick yells Carol’s name and pulls her back as the walker falls down the stairs. As the walker is lying on the floor, Carol gets out her knife (Rick’s knife) and stabs it in the head. While Rick looks on, he now knows that Carol took his knife. I wonder if Rick is going to let Carol know that one of his knives are missing.
Rick raises his gun as he hears the upstairs door crack open. Two people come out. A couple. Their names are Ana and Sam. Ana says to Carol and Rick that they have fruit. Sam added that they have pecans and peaches. Sam throws a piece of fruit down to Carol and Rick to catch. They just watched it fall to the ground. I wouldn’t trust those two random strangers either throwing me a piece of fruit. I just hope Rick doesn’t take them back with them to the prison. I would get really mad if he did that.
Carol asked Sam how he got his shoulder hurt. Rick is just listening and observing for now. Sam starts to explain,”The greenhouse around the corner.” Ana adds, “We were looking for a place to crash. The roof’s been breaking out so we have been getting a lot of rain. So its full of fruit. We were there about a day and the skin eaters showed up.” Sam continues with a laugh saying, “Killjoys man. Jacking it up for the whole world. I thought everyone was an asshole before all this went down. Now I love people. People who are alive.” He goes on to further explain how he hurt his shoulder: “They were coming in through the door. I tripped crawling out the other side. I pulled the glass out, but — my shoulder, it still hurts like a bitch!” Carol tells Sam that his shoulder is dislocated. Ana asked Carol if she could fix it. Carol tells Sam to lay down on the table. She pops his shoulder back into place.
Rick asked Sam, “After the greenhouse, you came here?”He told Rick yes. Sam added, “We thought it was clear. We missed the deadie and the PJ’s so we dove into the bathroom.” Rick asked them how long were they in there until they showed up. The young man said they had been out there for two days. Carol says, “There was just one, you could have had guns.” Ana replied with “We have a gun but we only have 12 bullets. It takes about 5 or 6 just to bring one of those down.” Awwww how lovely! Carol asked, “But you have knives?” Sam says, “To what? Stab it in the head?” Carol looked at them with that ‘You’re kidding me right?” look saying, “Yeah.” Wow they didn’t know they could kill walkers by  just stabbing them in the head. I just don’t know what to say about that.
Sam told Rick and Carol how him and Ana got separated from their crew from about a week ago. They were at a Refugee Center. Ana’s leg was hurt from people trampling over her when a fire took place there. Ana said that Sam saved her life. And they have been together ever since. Ana’s leg hasn’t healed up right from her incident. Rick asked them where they were headed next.  Sam tells Rick, “We just keep moving. We haven’t been waiting on places to go bad. Its getting a little bit old.” He points to his shoulder. Ana says,”You guys look alright. What’s your set-up look like?” Rick says, “Skin eaters. We call them walkers.” Rick starts to ask his three questions to Ana and Sam (#1: How many walkers you’ve killed? #2: How many people you’ve killed? #3: Why?) I think Rick is considering bringing those people back to the prison with them. Please don’t do it.
#5: Meanwhile Back at the Service Station 
Daryl and Bob managed to find their way inside the service station to look for a battery to put in the car so they can make their way to West Peach Tree Tech. Daryl finds a battery. He looks at it to see if it is still good to use. Bob tells Daryl that the battery cells look pretty dry. Daryl tells Bob that water was used on the battery and it will clear right out. So he tries to find some water so he can salvage the battery and make it work.
Michonne and Tyreese are clearing out the shrubs where the mini-van is. Michonne tells Tyreese on what happened earlier, “You should have let him go.” Then Tyreese goes off on Michonne saying, “The hell you know about it huh? You a damn expert!?!” Michonne tells him no. She then tells Tyreese that she just doesn’t want to see him die. She asks him, “Is that what you’re trying to do?” You even know what you’re trying to do?” Michonne continues on saying, “I know you’re pissed. You have every reason to be. But anger makes you stupid. Stupid gets you killed.” Tyreese asks Michonne if she is still angry about The Governor and what he did. Michonne tells him, “If he was here right now, I’ll cut him in two. ‘Cause that’s how it needs to be. But I’m not angry. I was.” Tyreese asks her, “Then why are you still looking for him?” She answers Tyreese saying, “I don’t know.” Then they both started back clearing the shrubs away from the mini-van.
Michonne was only trying to help Tyreese get a control of his anger. But I know deep down inside the reason why she is continuing her search for The Governor. To seek her revenge. Of course she is still angry. But she isn’t letting her anger corrupt her like what it is doing to Tyreese. I did say that he may show signs of turning into a walker. Maybe I was wrong about that. Tyreese maybe is blinded by anger for what happened to Karen and David. Plus he is worried about his sister. He needs to calm down. What Michonne said was right. Anger will make you do stupid things and may harm your life. At the same time, I feel it isn’t Tyreese’s business to know why Michonne is still hunting The Governor. If he understands what The Governor did, then that should be enough.
Back inside the service station, Daryl noticed some puke on the ground as well as a jug of antifreeze laying right beside it. He says, “Those douchebags on the vines took themselves out. Holding hands. Kumbaya style.” Ah, Daryl you crack me up! Bob adds, “They wanted to go out together, same as they lived. That makes them douchebags?” Daryl responds, “It does if they could have gotten out.” Bob tells Daryl, “Everybody makes it. Till they don’t. People nowadays, dominoes. What they did maybe is not about watching them fall.” Daryl sarcastically answers with “Riiiiight.” Yeah I ain’t believing a word Bob says. Because you sir should have died at the Big Spot! instead of Zach. What he said pretty much confused me.
Daryl got some water and told Bob to come on. Bob noticed an older man walker laying underneath the table. Bob shines his flashlight on a board that was full of pictures of the older man with some other people. He may have owned the service station. The people that was with him were probably his employees. It may have been his family. Bob gets a sharp object and stands over the older man walker. He stabs the walker in the head killing him. So now you want to kill a walker while they are lying down instead of when they are in your face?!?! You are a complete douchebag yo.
#6: What is Carol Doing? 
Carol tells Rick that they got what could from the house they went into. She tells them they can move on. Sam asked Rick if him and Ana passed his three questions test. Rick tells them where they are at (Ah, damn you Rick and your compassionate heart!). He told Sam and Ana if they come back with them they can’t guarantee their safety. He tells them about the flu and how bad it is. Carol tells them that they have lost a lot of people from it including kids. Ana asks Carol, “Yours?” She answered, “No thank God.” Rick looks at her like she’s crazy. She completely forgot about her own daughter Sophia turning into a walker. Rick had to end up shooting her when she came out of the barn at Hershel’s place. How could she just do that? Then she goes on to say, “One of my girls, she’s got it.” Ana apologizes to Carol. She tells her that her girl is strong and that she will make it. When Lizzie accidentally called Carol mom, she told her not to call her that. Now she is claiming both Lizzie and her sister Mika as her kids? What the crap is Carol doing? But just forgetting about her own biological daughter is cold blooded.
Sam asks a dumb question: “You got fences and walls?” Rick nods his head to him and Ana. I would have said no we don’t. The walls and fences are made of styrofoam so no one can get in. Not even walkers. I would have told them both not to come just for that raised question alone. Sam said, “We’re in!” Ana adds, “Yeah, whatever you need us to do.” Rick has heard that before. He doesn’t trust them.
Rick tells the two to hold tight and they could come back to get them before it gets dark. They still need to check houses for supplies. Carol tells them they could help sweep the neighborhood for supplies. What the hell? Ana agrees that she could help do that. She suggests that she could go back to the greenhouse to see if there is more fruit. Sam told Rick and Carol he could do house sweeps as well. Rick says, “I appreciate the offer, but your shoulder is barely —” Sam tells Rick that as long as he doesn’t put too much weight on it he will be fine. Ana also tells Rick that even though her leg hurt, she is pretty fast. Rick is like nope. Y’all just wait here. I’ll take ya’ll back to the prison later. Sam replied with, “We won’t take any chances. We’ll look. And if its cake, we’ll do it. If its not, we’ll just roll. I mean you don’t look so good yourself man. You a righty or lefty?” How dare he tells Rick Grimes that! How dare he asks if Rick Grimes is righty or a lefty! Rick Grimes doesn’t stand for that crap!
Carol tells Rick if Ana and Sam help them it will cover more ground. The sooner they will get back the the prison. If I were in Rick’s shoes, I would be like: “I don’t trust Carol anymore. She stole my knife and killed two people. I still have to deal with her on that. I don’t trust these two new people sweeping houses for supplies because they may steal something that we actually would need to use. I don’t know if I would even want to bring them back to the prison. I just want to sweep these houses, leave these two people, and go back to the prison. But noooooo! Things are not always easy. They have to be so damn complicated. Being Rick Grimes sometimes suck! Why did I pull Carol out of the way from that walker that was rolling down the stairs? Arrgh!” It would be really difficult being leader during a zombie apocalypse. It would just be difficult surviving a zombie apocalypse. You wouldn’t know who to trust and there is always new people popping up that you have to question if there reasons are clear.
Sam tells Rick, “You can’t carry us like that man. It doesn’t work that way.” “Please, we want to help.” says Ana. Rick both gives them guns and tells them to fire a shot. They will come and get them. Rick tells them to be back at the house in two hours. He gives Sam his watch just to make sure they come back to the house in time. So they start sweeping houses for supplies. I don’t know what Carol is trying to do. Show Rick that maybe she can be a better leader than him? But that was just weird.
#7: Bob & Daryl, Cigarette Moment 
While Daryl is putting the battery in the car, he asks Bob to tell him about the group that he was in. Bob asked which one. I guess he’s been a lot of groups. Bob says, “You know when you found me out in that road, I almost kept walking.” Daryl asked him why. Bob told him,  “‘Cause I was done being a witness. Two times, two different groups. I was the last one standing.” Really? That’s funny! “Like I was supposed to see it happen, over and over. Like its some kind of curse. But when its just you out there in the quiet. Used to be I’d drink a bottle of anything so I could shut my eyes at night. Take you to prison, the people, thought it be easier,” Bob told Daryl.
Bob admits that the run to the Big Spot! he did it for himself. Daryl says to Bob, “You got the keep busy.” Bob tell Daryl, “No. I did it so I could get me a bottle. Of anything. I picked it up, held it in my hand, and I put it down.” He didn’t actually put the bottle down. Bob was about to “put the bottle down” into his little bag. He goes on to say, “I put the bottle down so hard that I took the whole shelf with it. That’s what brought on the walkers, and that’s what got Zach killed.” So Bob thinks that confessing this all to Daryl will make things better for him? To wipe his slate clean? He should have just stayed his ass back at the prison that day. Daryl tells Bob that what he is saying is bullshit. He tells him to try to hotwire the car to see if it will start. The car starts. Daryl whistles Michonne and Tyreese over so they can all get in the mini-van. Daryl told Bob, “Sasha and I picked out that spot. We took you with us. Ain’t no way anyone would have known. You won’t be staying in that long. Not no more.” What does Daryl mean? Anyway they got another ride, and all four of them continue their journey to the college to get the meds.
#8: Rick and Carol Sweeping Houses 
As Rick and Carol continue to sweep houses, he asks her if it was right to bring Ana and Sam back with them. Carol answers Rick saying, “It was the humane thing to do.” Rick asks her again, “But did you think it was right?” Carol says, “Look at us. We’re digging through drawers hoping that a couple of cough drops and some disinfectant might be the difference between dying and living a couple more hours. If they are strong enough to help us survive this thing, then yeah. I think you made the right call.” Rick tells Carol, “If they’re not —” Carol tells him, “Let’s hope they are.” She goes on to say, “I killed two people and you haven’t said a word about it.” Rick tells her, “What do you want me to say?” Carol responds, “Its not about what you say, its about facing reality. It always comes for us and over and over again. We face it so we can live.” Rick says, “So we can live?” Carol tells him, “That’s right! That’s what it comes down to. You can be a farmer Rick. You can’t just be a farmer. You are a good leader. Better than what I gave you credit for.” “I never murdered two of our own,” Rick states. Carol says, “Just one.” The one person she is referring to is Rick’s buddy Shane. Rick tells Carol that Shane was going to kill him. He defended himself. Carol tells Rick, “So were they (Karen and David). They were going to kill all of us.” Rick says to Carol, “You don’t know that.” Carol then says, “If it were Judith or Carl would you done it then or you would have just gone back to your crops and hope that it will all be okay? You don’t have to like what I did, Rick. I don’t. Just accept it.” I wouldn’t accept the fact that Carol killed two people. Plus she brought a little ultimatum to Rick revolving around Judith and Carl just so she could justify with what she did is right? That’s just a lame move.
#9: West PeachTree Tech/Carol & Rick
Daryl, Michonne, Bob, and Tyreese make it to West Peach Tree Tech. They start to look for the Veterinary building where the antibiotics are being held. They made it to the building and start to looking for the meds. As Michonne gets some med supplies, she sees Bob at a far distance getting something. She suspects some weird and rather dumb behavior. Bob runs off somewhere.
Carol tells Rick about going to sweep the houses across the street. Rick tells her to hold up. He sees some tomatoes to get to take back to the prison. Rick asked Carol if Hershel taught her how to pop shoulders back in place. Like what she did to Sam. She said she learned from the internet. Apparently she fell down the stairs so many times, that she popped her shoulder, and from the miraculous learning tool of the internet she could pop hers back into place. She then stared to talk about her husband Ed. Her husband used to abuse her. She didn’t understand why she thought she was happy being in a relationship like that. She didn’t realize how strong she was. But evidently she did become stronger. Rick didn’t understand why she doesn’t say her daughter’s name anymore. She answered saying, “She’s dead, Rick. Sophia. Ed. Somebody else’s slide show.” Rick tells Carol, “Some mornings, I wake up expecting Lori to be there. Reminding me to pick up Carl after school or telling me breakfast is ready. Every Sunday she would make us these pancakes that were just God awful. Lots of flour. They weren’t mixed in right. Thing was she knew it was bad.” Carol asked Rick, “Why she keep at it?” Rick answered, “She wanted us to be the kind of family that eat pancakes on Sundays.”
Rick and Carol noticed a basket of fruit laying on the grass. They followed the trail and it lead to a fence door. Ana’s leg from was lying right beside the door. As Rick opened the door, two walkers are eating her body. Carol tells Rick that they should get back to the house. Sam may be waiting for them.
#10: Making A Way Out 
Back at West Peach Tree Tech, Michonne and Bob are looking for the antibiotics. Bob tells Michonne anything that ends with “cilin” or “cin” is what they need to get. Daryl and Tyreese got the medical supplies. Michonne and Bob got the meds. They start to make their way out of the buliding and passed some walkers in a room nearby. Everyone makes a run for it.
The crew make it to pitch black room. Bob tells Tyreese that the door is busted. They used something to keep the door shut. All of a sudden Michonne noticed walkers coming out of one of the door. The door had a simple lock on it. Daryl asked how many were there. She wasn’t sure. Tyreese told them that they can take them. Bob said, “NO! They’re infected! Same as back at the prison. We fire at them, get their blood on us, breathe it in — We didn’t come all this way to get sick!” Who the hell told you was the damn leader of the crew? This is why I said Bob should have died at the Big Spot! He should died when they got out the car. Michonne shouldn’t have saved him when that walker was grabbing at him by the neck. He is starting to irk my nerves. I am starting to wonder how he was the only survivor from the two groups that he was in. He might have killed them all. I would rather fight my way out than to say in there scared of being infected. Bob is being a little bitch. Tyreese tells Bob, “How do you know that those people in there aren’t any different?” Michonne says, “We Don’t.” Daryl says,”Well its gotta change sometime.” He brakes off the lock to start killing walkers to make a way out of the building. Walkers are coming behind them as they are killing the ones in front of the doorway. Another walker killing spree starts. The crew made their way up the stairs hoping that would be their way out.
#11: Where’s Sam?/Back at West PeachTree Tech/Daryl Gets Pissed Off
Rick and Carol are back at the first house they swept waiting for Sam to come back. Carol knows its been too long. Rick wanted to wait a little bit more longer just in case if Sam comes back. Carol says to Rick, “He might be fine. He really might be. But it doesn’t matter. Because he’s not here and we have to go.” She tells Rick that the watch he gave Sam was a nice watch. I think Rick was hoping Sam would come back so he could get his watch.
Daryl, Michonne, Bob, and Tyreese are fighting their way out of the building where they got the meds and med supplies. A sea of walkers are coming their way. They have no exit in sight. Tyreese uses a fire hydrant to break a window so they can jump out of. It the was the only way to get out. Everybody (Michonne, Daryl, and Tyreese) jumped out of the window and onto the scaffolding with no problem. Then you have Bob who jumps out of the window, stumbles, and has his bag with hanging in front of large group of zombies. Half of the meds are in that bag. He tries to hold on the bag as best he could. Tyreese, Michonne, and Daryl tell him to let the bag go. Bob just doesn’t want to listen and keeps holding on to the bag. He manages to hold on to the bag and flings it back up to the scaffolding. That freakin dummy! Daryl gets to Bob’s bag. I think he was supposed to have the meds in there. But instead there was a bottle of liquor. Dude! Why did they take that dude with them?
Daryl is pretty much pissed off right now. He asks Bob, “There are no meds in your bag? Just this?” You should have kept walking that day.” As Daryl was about to throw the bottle of liquor away, Bob holds his gun by his holster and tells him not to throw it. So he was going to shoot Daryl over a bottle of liquor? He has got some mental issues. That’s probably happened to the other members of his group. He found some liquor instead of getting some supplies that they really needed. They try to throw the liquor out. Bob shoots him. He is such a dumb ass yo.
Daryl gets right into Bob’s face. Tyreese tells Daryl to let it go. Bob has already made his choice. But Daryl isn’t the kind of dude to walk away from someone who threatens to shoot him. He was about to throw Bob’s ass to the walkers. Tyreese then adds, “There is nothing that you could do about it. You just have to let it go.” Daryl let Bob go. Bob says, “I didn’t want to hurt nobody. It was just for when it gets quiet.” Daryl gives him the bottle of liquor and tells him, “You take one sip before those meds get into our people, I will beat your ass to the ground. You hear me?” Bob is so selfish. He’d rather help his addiction than to actually save people’s lives. We shall see how long you last buddy.
#12: Rick and Carol Head Back to the Prison/The Crew Heading Back to the Prison
As Rick and Carol pack up he took a glimpse of Carol with his knife in her holster. Rick told Carol, “They might have lived. Karen and David. They might have lived. And now their dead. That wasn’t your decision to make. When Tyreese finds out, he’ll kill you. He damn near killed me over nothing.” Carol tells Rick that she can handle Tyreese. Rick further goes on to say, “When the others find out, they won’t want you there. And if they don’t make it back, if everybody dies, if this thing [virus], and if its just the two of us. With Judith and Carl — my children, I won’t have you there. Carol says to Rick, “Its me. No one else has to know. You were done making decisions for everyone.” Rick tells her, “I’m making this decision for me.” Carol says, “I could have pretended that everything was fine, but I didn’t. I did something. I stepped up. I had to do something.” Rick told her that she didn’t have to do anything. Carol tells Rick, “You think I am going anywhere without Lizzie and Mika.” Rick states, “You want them to leave? To go out there with you? Lizzie is sick. Mika is 10 years old!” Carol is telling Rick that he can’t just let her go without taking them. Rick tells her that the group will keep Lizzie and Mika safe. Rick says to Carol, “You’re not that woman who was too scared to be alone. Not anymore. You can start over. Find others. People who don’t know. You’re gonna survive out here. You will.” Carol tells Rick maybe she will survive out there. So will Rick tell everyone what Carol did or will Carol be the one to confess that she killed those two people? Apparently not. Rick is telling her to leave and start over.
Michonne and Tyreese try to figure out the fastest way to get back to the prison. Daryl sits in the front of the mini-van holding the piece of jasper that he found in the woods. Bob is outside the mini-van smoking a cigarette. Probably scared and paranoid. Dang jerk. Michonne tells Daryl that he was right about what he said to her before about the trail going cold for The Governor. She tells him that she doesn’t need to go out anymore. Daryl tells her, “Good.” And the crew start to make their way back to the prison.
Rick finishes packing up. Carol hands him a gas can. He tells her to take it. Carol is using the car that Ana and Sam that they met in the house used. Carol gives Rick her watch from her first wedding anniversary. She tells him that she should have given it away a long time ago. So Carol leaves and Rick go their separate ways. Rick  makes his way back to the prison and Carol is making her way to find a safe place. She shouldn’t have killed those two people. Did Rick make the right decision? How is he going to tell the rest of the group if they ask why Carol isn’t with him?
It was a good episode!
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^.

Hello Ladies: Handsome Model Michael Sungjo Ju

The handsome young lad you see before you is Michael Sungjo Ju. The 19 year old New York City native is a model. So you may think to yourself: “Ashley, why did you title this blog post ‘Hello Ladies’ for this handsome guy? I guess the picture above of him just screams that. Plus I was just using my awesome imagination to come up with a cool title. Its a cool title to sum up this whole interview right? Michael shares with me how he started modeling, what he looks for in woman, and other interesting facts. Enjoy!
#1: When did you start getting into modeling and when did you decide that this was something that you wanted to pursue?
I got into modeling because I grew up always admiring other models. It was something that I saw glamourous. I was never a kid who was popular and I guess my insecurities made me want to chase this lifestyle. It’s not a healthy approach to modeling, but now that I am modeling it is something I enjoy. I don’t know how to explain on why I enjoy modeling but I do.
#2: What are the most challenging and rewarding things about modeling you believe based on your own experience?
The most challenging thing about modeling is about how I constantly have to be on point of my body and my face. I enjoy eating foods that aren’t considered healthy but I guess it’s all worth it in the end when I pose in front of a camera. 
The most rewarding thing is my accomplishment. I feel proud of what I became considering what I was back in high school. I grew up with eczema all over my body, so to see that I have come this far by clearing my body of the skin disorder, as well as becoming fit is by far the most rewarding outcome for me.
#3: Who are some of the most important people in your life who you admire?
The most important people in my life are the ones who stuck by my side when I attended Valley Forge Military Academy and College. When I was in there, I guess you can say, I was going through a tremendous stage of finding out who I truly was. The family I made in that school are the most important because they made me who I am today along with my parents.
#4: What are some misconceptions people have about modeling that are not true?
The misconceptions are both true and false just as how there is some pro’s and con’s in everything such as stereotypes for different races. Some are true in certain individuals and some are not. In the end it’s about who is willing to work harder in the industry.
#5: Share five facts about you that your fans may be surprised to know.

5. a. I grew up with ezcema when I was a child. It was an extreme case where it covered my body and face.

5. b. I have been constantly told I was worth nothing. But I worked hard and I proved them all wrong. Don’t listen to what others tell you!

5. c. The Asian stereotypes for a man’s penis does not apply to me.

5. d. I am fascinated by anything that involves law enforcement such as crime scenes, criminals, etc. I always wanted to be part of the law.

5. e. I have a passion for dancing but I never got around to it. I enjoy all types of choreography from ballet to break dancing. It looks so beautiful to me when people can move to music and create a moving image.

#6: You are a single man if I am not mistaken. So what are some characteristics you look for in a woman that makes you attracted to her?
Me personally growing up, I was always judged. As you know I have never been “popular” or even considered cute in my past until recently once I went through the changes of becoming better. All I look for is personality. I don’t go by looks but instead if you work hard, smile, and stay humble then most likely I will end up in your bed asking you to be mine.
#7: If you could pick 5 to 10 songs to represent the “Soundtrack of your life” which would they be? Explain why.
All of Eminem’s music. He speaks about life and the struggles he went through and overcame. I can relate to all of his music and feel exactly what he feels. His music represents my life and the lyrics resemble what I have been through and overcame.
#8: Random Question: Boxers or Briefs? You can explain why if you would like.
I prefer briefs. I just always wore them and I just feel more comfortable in them. I guess briefs provide a sense of protection for my ***** unlike boxers where my ***** has so much room to bounce all around.
Side Note: I think he prefers briefs for comfort of his man package. That’s my only assumption from the bleeps he provided.
#9: Where do you see yourself and your modeling career 10 years from now?
As of right now, I am more concentrated on my education. My dream was always to become a lawyer, but becoming a model was my dream as well. Hopefully 10 years from now, I can be modeling for famous brands such as Calvin Klein and Dolce Gabbana. Only time will tell. I know with my work ethic I can achieve much more than I already have.
#10: Are there any upcoming events or projects that you would like to share with the readers or your fans?
An upcoming project might be me creating my own YouTube channel ranting about whatever I feel is important to be discussed. I just want to spread my knowledge so that you can truly become whatever your heart really wants. It’s something I can’t stress enough to people. As of right now though, there are no projects or events that I have planned. I am too concentrated on school, but in the future I definitely will.
I would like to thank Michael for allowing me to interview him. I wish nothing but happiness and success on his future endeavors. Michael is actually the first model I ever interviewed. I am appreciative of that. Its always nice to accomplish firsts here at The AshNerdStar Report. I think Michael can easily be a lawyer and also a model. I really don’t think that has ever been done before. That would be awesome!

You can have more than one dream. Heck you have as many dreams as you want. As long as you try to pursue some of those dreams, life will prove more exciting to you with no regrets. You may wonder who said that? I just made that quote up on the spot. Cool huh?

Kiearra Scruggs: Adorable, Talented Cuteness

This is Kiearra Scruggs. She writes, sings, and an avid music lover. Oh and I forgot to mention that she is pretty darn adorable. The 19 year old Farmington Hills (Detroit), Michigan native once broadcasted on the magical social media website called, “YouNow.” She also has a vlog on YouTube Channel where she talks about things she cares about. Kiearra to talked with me about her love of music, her love for the King of Pop Michael Jackson, her future, and other cool facts.  This kind-hearted young lady has an old soul which is quite refreshing.
Read and enjoy!
#1: When did music, singing, and writing become your three loves? Do you have a particular one that you love the most out of the three?
Probably when I was about five years old. I remember when I was in Kindergarten and we had to make a little project showing what we wanted to be when we grow up. For me it was a either doctor or singer. I found this picture of Brandy and slapped it on the paper. When I was little my biggest inspiration in singing was actually Aaliyah. Every time her videos came on I was always out in the living room singing and dancing along. 
As for dancing, I learned my first dance when I was actually younger. It was James Brown’s “I Feel Good.” When I learned this, I was no younger than four years old. Oddly, I shall not lie. 
I actually wrote my first song, when I was 10 years old. I would always travel with my Papa (grandfather) when I was little and when we stopped at rest-stops I would get these Activity Books. The ones where you make words out of the little picture codes and etc. One of the activities was to write a song for Barbie. Instead of this 10 year old writing a little song about her favorite cartoon or something, I wrote a love song. And like the little talent I was, I showed it to everyone, wishing I still had it though. I have always been on the creative side, I guess because when I was little I would always want to sing about love at the earlier ages. 
Singing along with Aaliyah had a toll on me as a little kid. My mom would always look at me like and say “Child?” Even though, through my childhood I wanted to sing, dance and do all types of stuff musically, I think I realized how much it meant to me when I was about 15 years old. A few months before I was starting to feel very uninspired, just by the kind of mainstream music I was raised on. One day I woke up and music just wasn’t touching me anymore. I would say out of the three I love music the most, because without music itself I wouldn’t have been able to have the blessing of the other two.

#2: You have so many nicknames. On the magical social website called “YouNow,” where you broadcasted quite a bit, one of your nicknames is “Little Oprah.” How did that nickname came about? 
The nickname, “Little Oprah” came along by, Eddie (my Ellen) actually. I was just kidding around because, I was ecstatic to have over 100,000 coins from going on before Tre Melvin once and I started giving away coins like crazy. Like I was a Younow Millionaire. I kept implying that I was the Oprah of Younow and Eddie heard it and he started saying it and somehow Timothy started addressing me by it.
#3: Michael Jackson is one of your biggest musical influences ever. When did your infatuation with this iconic artist began? What it is about MJ that makes you draw to his music and connect with it? 
Michael Jackson became, someone I adored and became so inspired by was probably two weeks after June 25, 2009 the day he passed. Not, because I felt sorry, about dodging good music for almost 15 years of my life, but because he helped me restored something in my heart that I was actually starting to not love anymore, which was music. I remember music just started getting meaningless and all the music I listened to was on BET. Yeah I got into James Brown but that was “I Feel Good,”” It’s a Man “World,” “Black and I’m Proud” and that’s all. When I was growing up I wanted to sing, but never really had inspiration anymore after Aaliyah passed, because she wasn’t something really playing on the radio anymore or her videos weren’t really on T.V. When I first saw and listened to Thriller, I realized there were things I needed to change in my life which a few months later it caused me to want to get into Stevie Wonder and other artists in music, that would inspire me so. He inspired me so much as an artist because he taught me to finally open my eyes and just realize some things. He helped me finally set standards for myself which I think every artist needs to do.
#4: You have a Vlog Channel on YouTube with about 200 plus followers. Can you share what your Vlog is all about? How is it different than the other channels that are out there? 
My Vlog on Youtube used to be about my music, I’m one inspired artist, but I’m one critical person to myself as well. I’ll would put one video up and then I’m like: “What the Hell was I thinking?” Which causes me to take videos down. As for now my Youtube channel its about just making videos to help someone smile. Which I want to do with my music one day once I get a better camera and reorganize myself music I will be back on there as well.
#5: Share five facts about you that your fans may be surprised to know.
One. I almost fell out of love with music before. 
Two. I can actually dance seems a little impossible since, I act too shy at times, but I even danced in my 5th grade talent show, because music just gave me that much joy and dancing was my escape from everything. 
Three. I love to bake; I love to make everything from homemade. 
Four. I love to sing, but I get nervous a lot when I plan to do it. Like I’ll get all excited to sing and then when it’s time to sing I’m not putting in my all at times, like on Younow, I sing Alto rather than Soprano which is in my range. 
Five. I’m actually very close to my parents than like doing normal teenage stuff. I rather be around them. There’s a reason, because I was sick a lot as a child, so that’s who I was around more of, just stating so no one will think I’m all crazy.
#6: Who are some of your other musical influences besides MJ? 
Mariah Carey is one of my influences and though I don’t listen to Aaliyah and James Brown as much anymore, without them I probably wouldn’t still be the same Kiearra.
#7: If you could pick 5 to 10 songs to represent the “Soundtrack of your life” which would they be? Explain why. 
Kirk Franklin- I Smile. This song explains it all.
Marvin Sapp- Never Would Have Made It 
Michael Jackson- Heal the World. Mostly, because, I’m that kind of person who just wants to help everyone as much as I can. 
Mariah Carey- There’s Got to be a Way. 
James Brown- I Feel Good. I say this song, because I’m just a person who’s probably always in that kind of mood.
#8: Random Question: What are some of your favorite TV shows that you are watching right now?
Awkward, Chicago Fire, A Different World, The Cosby Show, Rugrats, Spongebob and the list doesn’t quite end.
#9: Where do you see yourself in your music career 10 years from now? 
I see myself, on stage doing concerts and writing music for other artists. Though, sometimes I even say, Kiearra maybe you are aiming to high, but each day when I picture myself actually doing it, I know I’m doing something right.
#10: Are there any upcoming events or projects that you would like to share with the readers or your fans to share about? 
Sadly, no.
I would like to thank Kiearra for allowing me to interview her. I wish her nothing but love, happiness, and success in everything that she does. She is truly a talented individual that one day I hope that her gifts will be shown to the world.
Here are her links to check (and subscribe) to her YouTube Channel and to follow her on Twitter:

Why I ♥ TaeYang ^_^

taeyang-bb-2 taephone

I don’t know when I started to love Dong Young Bae aka TaeYang aka YoungBae. For those who don’t know who TaeYang is, he is a South Korean singer/dancer who is apart of a K-Pop group called Big Bang. TaeYang started training under YG Entertainment when he was 12 years old. He became a member of Big Bang in 2006. You may wonder how did I got into listening to K-Pop? I shall share how. I will also of how I became a fan of not only the group, but also TaeYang.
I started listening to Big Bang a year or so ago. I guess you can say that I am a newbie VIP. I still am. One of my favorite songs from them is Bad Boy. Of course I like Blue, Fantastic, Baby, Monster, HARU HARU, Tonight, Beautiful Hangover, and many others. But Bad Boy stuck out to me the most. Why? Pretty much the beat and the lyrics drew me in. But as I was watching the video for the thousandth time, I noticed one person from the other four that caught me eye.
I love GD (G-Dragon), T.O.P, Seungri, and Daesung. They are some really talented dudes. It was something about YoungBae. In my mind, I started to say to myself in Future’s voice from “Turn on the Lights”: “I think I love him.” And it wasn’t like “Oh I want to marry him and have his kids” kind of love. That would be strangely awkward and weird. Even stalker type behavior. But it was the kind of love I have for people that are talented. Like I would want to meet him someday. Talk about random stupid things or serious issues and laugh. Take some pictures to cherish this moment forever. I tend to daydream quite a bit. When that happens, I write my thoughts down. This is one of those moments.
YoungBae sings like an angel, raps like a beast, and dances with precision and skill. He also has a smile that shines as bright as the sun. His stage name TaeYang actually means sun. Whenever I look at pics of him smiling, I smile. His smile is infectious. So darn infectious. Sighs. He has a different style and swag (I shall only use this word once. I don’t even use it any more. It seemed fitting to use it.) that I have never seen before. Its funny, but whenever I see pictures or videos of him I kind of fangirl internally. There is only one other person I do that for. His name is Bruno Mars. TaeYang is the only other person that makes me feel that way.
Here are some facts about TaeYang that you may, may not, or already know about him:
#1: Became ‘interested’ in music after hearing Brian McKnight’s first album when he was little.
#2: TaeYang has an older brother, Dong Hyun Bae. He’s an actor.
#3: He talks in his sleep.
#4: He has never had a girlfriend before.
#5: Known to be extremely shy and nervous around girls, has become better but still unable to speak or look at them.
#6: Dislikes when people make face judgements about them.
#7: Says if he weren’t a music artist, he’d be a Gag Man.
#8: His biggest conflict with GD was during trainee years and it was over a basketball game where he even grabbed GD by the collar because he was so mad.
#9:Chooses love over work.
#10:One of his favorite songs is ‘Frankie J – Don’t Wanna Try’.
#11: Always carries his ipod, bible, and English vocab cards in his backpack and sometimes energy drinks.
I know that TaeYang has put out one EP (Hot, 2008) and one album (Solar, 2010). YoungBae’s sound is R&B/Pop feel with those two albums. His second album Rise comes out on November 11th. His current album has more of an Hip-Hop vibe to it. Its been three years since YoungBae has put out any new music. I know that caused a lot of his fans to wait in anticipation. Biting their nails, pacing back and forth, maybe fidgeting a lot.  Waiting when new music was going to come out. I even wondered myself if he was going to come out with new stuff.
I can tell you some of my favorite songs from both Hot and Solar:
Only Look At Me (Look Only At Me)
I’ll Be There
Wedding Dress
Where U At
Take It Slow
After You Sleep
I Need A Girl
Not to mention he covered songs I saw on YouTube like Frankie J’s “Don’t Wanna Try,” Chris Brown’s “Don’t Judge Me,” and Beyonce’s song (Frank Ocean wrote for her) called, “I Love You.” Plus there is this dope dance he did on a Korean Variety Show called the “Sushi Dance” that is so cool. Some of TaeYang’s musical influences include Michael Jackson and Usher. I can see in some ways how he resemble Usher, but I think YoungBae is in a league all his own.
YoungBae recently released his first single off his second album Rise, called “RINGA LINGA” on November 8th 2013. Since its release it has topped the singles charts in Korea. The single became #1 in five countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Macao. When the Music Video (MV) was released on YouTube on November 10th, it got 1 million views within 13 hours of being released. His fans received his comeback really well.

There maybe some people who may not like the video or his new style. I personally love it! You have to understand that music artists can’t just stay in one box all the time and just have one sound. Of course that’s what made you fall in love with them. But I respect music artists who keep evolving their sound. Challenging themselves to create something that they may be surprised would never come out from them. Is TaeYang’s sound different from the other two projects that he put out in the past? Yes. Artists who take their time to create something that not only they will be proud of but also their fans will be proud of. I really don’t think TaeYang is worried about the critics or even fans downplaying his new sound. I think he is just really excited about making music and putting it out there for the people to enjoy.
So why do I love TaeYang? Of course he is handsome and adorable. But I love him mainly because he is a talented individual who loves music and is dedicated in what he does. Music is more than just words, notes, and sounds. Its about creation and expression. Its about sharing your creative expressions to the world. I think his album Rise will do well. I am excited to hear his new music. New music always excites me. I will be a fan of TaeYang forever. How could I not be a fan of him? His smile yo. Sorry I am having flashbacks about his smile. I like guys with nice warm welcoming smiles.
So with that I will leave you with this quote:
Follow your heart, not your head. Follow your passion.
— TaeYang
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^.
