TWD Season 4: Episode 3, Isolation (Recap)


Warning! This recap may have me saying: Flips tables, Flippin tables, I want to flip tables, or I am going to flip tables repeatedly. So you can have a counter ready. I am about to go in! This past episode not only made me a bit upset. I was also shocked as well.
So let’s get started!
#1: Beginning — WHOA! ( Tyreese and Rick Fight)
The beginning of the episode starts with Glenn, Maggie, and some other folks digging graves outside in the prison yard. Dr. S (Caleb, now I know his name!) and Hershel checks on a man who was sick with the virus. He is now dead.
Meanwhile Tyreese, Rick, Carol and Daryl are standing in front of Karen and David’s burned bodies. Rick asks Tyreese, “You found them like this?” Tyreese explains to Rick how he was going to visit Karen and he ended up finding her dead body from the blood trail he followed.  He said to him, “Someone dragged their bodies outside and lit them on fire!” Is it just me or did Tyreese just sound like Ja Rule when he was explaining to Rick what happened? Or maybe DMX? Moving right along.
Tyreese was enraged. He was hungry for vengeance. He wants to find the person who did this. Tyreese called Rick a cop. He demands that he finds out who did killed them and bring that person to him. I think Rick was looking at Tyreese like: “Who the hell you take me for? You can go play detective and go find who did this ya damn self!” Tyreese was freakin out. Rick calmly tells Tyreese that he’s been there. He understands how he is feeling. But he is not listening to all that. All that rage and anger is blinding him. He is like a Tyreese Hulk or Ty Hulk in a sense now. Daryl tries to calm him down. He yells saying, “Karen didn’t deserve this! David didn’t deserved this! No one deserved this!” Daryl tells Tyreese that they are on the same side.
Rick tries to calm Tyreese down. He assures Tyreese that he knows and understands what he is going through. Of course everyone so far in the both groups have lost loved ones or good people that didn’t deserve to die. He understands how he feels. Tyreese is pretty much losing his mind. He is not thinking straight. Tyreese punches Rick in the face (Awwwww Snap!) Carol tries to separate them. Its not working so well. Why did Tyreese punch Rick? He didn’t do anything to him. He was just trying to calm him down. Tyreese isn’t thinking straight. He punches Rick in the face again. Daryl holds him back saying, “That’s enough!”
I would have been like: “Who the hell you think you are?!?!?! I was the one that brought you, your sister, and your little crew up in this prison, when y’all didn’t have anywhere to go. You all left to stay with The Governor, then come back, and you punch me in the face because your little girlfriend died thinking I had something to do with that?!?! Awwww HELL NAW!” You know Rick ain’t going down like that. So he punches Tyreese in the face. A fist fight starts.
Rick literally kicks the shit out of Tyreese. Awwww the Rick that we all know and love is coming back! Daryl keeps calling his name trying to stop him. But Rick is in that rage mode too because Tyreese invaded his personal space. I know what he was trying to do. Be sneaky and blame Rick for what happened. Daryl tries to hold Rick back. Rick loses it and yells repeatedly: “LET GO OF ME!” Carol is just standing there looking in shock (and maybe a little bit of awe) of what just happened.
Tyreese lays on the ground crying. Rick looks at his bloody knuckles. It was almost like he blacked out. He was coming back to reality, realizing what he had done. He looked at his hand at first started out as rage, but then turned into something else. Rick looked worried for some reason. He looked scared at what he had done to Tyreese. But he was only defending himself as a man. I don’t think anyone would let someone just hit them and let them get away with it. Remember when your parents would tell you if a someone hits you at school: “When someone hits you, you have to hit them back.” That’s what Rick did. Just made me think of Elementary and Grade School all over again. I hit people back who hit me. I don’t play that mess.
Intense opener to this episode.
#2: Hershel & Rick Moment 
Rick sprained his hand from the little altercation he had with Tyreese. Hershel said that his hand will be sprained for about week. Hershel asks if Rick is okay. Rick tells him, “It hurts.” Hershel wasn’t talking about his hand, but about what has happened (Security breaches, a possible virus outbreak, loosing lives, and food shortages). 12 people have died since the incident. 2 people were killed in cold blood. Rick says, “I think I caused enough damage for one day.” Hershel tells Rick that he has fell off the wagon before. He didn’t sit down feeling sorry for himself about it. He got back up. He told him, “I had responsibilities to take care of. People to keep safe.” In some way Hershel wants Rick to take over leadership duties and be the fearless leader like he once was again. Rick is still having his doubts about that.
#3: Bob the Medic & Tyreese Moment
Tyreese is digging up graves for Karen and David. Rick hit him so hard that his eye has swelled up shut. Bob looked at Tyreese while he continues to dig saying, “Let’s get you cleaned up man. Need a couple stitches.” Tyreese tells him, “Not until they are in the ground.” He is referring to Karen and David. So he is not doing anything else until they are properly buried. Bob tells Tyreese that he should let Hershel or Dr. S check him out to make sure he doesn’t have any broken bones. Tyreese looks at Bob and says, “When they in the ground.” So Bob gets a shovel and starts to help Tyreese on diging the other grave. You know Tyreese was just a chill guy. Now he is turning himself slowly into a monster. Should we be scared? Maybe.
#4: Glenn is Worried, Sasha Starts Getting Sick 
Glenn asks Hershel they (meaning the rest of Rick’s crew and the other survivors) are going to be okay in terms of not getting sick. He tells Hershel that Karen and David were already sick. So if they would have gotten the virus they would have had it by now. Hershel tells Glenn that they may be okay. He is not for sure. Hershel says, “It doesn’t happen on a timeline. Its different with everyone.” Glenn asks, “We could be okay?” Such an adorable worry-wort. Hershel responds back with, “Yes. We could be. Everything could be okay.” Glenn looks at his father-in-law and says: “If its walkers, if its people, we can fight. But with this, I am just digging graves.” Sasha comes out of the door while Glenn and Hershel have their conversation. She starts to cough really bad (Uh-Oh!). She waves to Glenn and Hershel to stay back. She tells them that she is going to see Dr. S and that she is going to be okay.
As Sasha staggers into Cell Block A looking for Dr. S she sees other people who are sick, coughing in their cells, dying, and turning into walkers. A man who has died from the virus turns into a walker and starts to reach toward her in the cell. Dr. S comes up to Sasha and tells her, “Its starting.” People are starting to die from the virus and turning into walkers. Making this a huge problem. Just when you think things are slightly getting better. They turn for the worse. Dr. S is starting to get sick as well.
#5: Race to Find Medicine 
Hershel explains to Daryl, Carol, Glenn, and Michonne about how the virus is spreading. He says that the survivors from Cell Block D (Sasha, Caleb aka Dr. S, and the others) are starting to get sick. As he continues to explain on what he thinks should be done try to to stop it, Glenn starts to feel kind of weird. He is sweating more than usual. He may have the virus in him too. But he doesn’t want to let anyone know. Hershel says there is no way of stopping the virus. Once you get it, you have to go through it. Michonne says, “But it just kills you.” Hershel tells Michonne, “The illness doesn’t kill you, but the symptoms do.” They need antibiotics. Daryl says that they have been through every pharmacy nearby without any luck of finding any.
Hershel tells Daryl of making a trip to a veterinary college at West Peach Tree Tech. It might the be one place that people haven’t raided to get meds. He said the same medicine that they give to animals is the same needed to treat the virus. Daryl gets a group ready so they can head out to the college. It is 50 miles away from the prison. Michonne decides to go as well. Hershel tells her that she may have a risk of being exposed. Michonne is not worried about that. She goes on with Daryl to get ready for the med run trip.
Hershel makes a suggestion to separate the most vulnerable people who may be exposed to the virus and place them in a different area. Glenn asks who is the most vulnerable. Hershel answers Glenn with, “Their young.” Glenn asks, “What about the old?” If they do get the antibiotics and bring them back to give to the surviving group members who have been exposed, will that be enough to save them? Will that help get rid of the symptoms and keep everyone alive? We just have to wait and see.
#6: Rick & Tyreese Moment/Rick & Carl
The water pump is stuck. Rick tells Carol that they may have enough water until tomorrow. Carol suggests to Rick a way to get the pump unclogged. Rick seemed a little bit hesitant to hear that. Carol tells him that 5 more people have came down with the virus. There aren’t that many people left. Carol says to Rick, “What if you get sick? What if I get sick? Rick tells Carol, “What if we get in trouble out there and not come back? Look, lets get this up (water) to the people who need it. We get what we have to get done first.” I smell the leadership coming back.
Carol and Rick looks out to see Tyreese still digging Karen and David’s graves. She tells Rick that he should talk to him and pay his respects. Tyreese finishes burying Karen and David’s bodies. Rick stands right in front of him. They are about to have a civil conversation. Rick apologizes to Tyreese about what happened earlier. He continues his apology to Tyreese saying, “What I did to you. Everything.” Tyreese responds by saying, “Its on both of us. You got to find who did this.” Rick says, “Well I didn’t know David much, did you? Did anyone have a problem with David or Karen?” Tyreese told him no. He was with Karen everyday. There seemed to be no problems from her. There was no problems from David either. Both Karen and David got along with everybody. Rick tells Tyreese that Karen and David were the only two that were sick at the time. The mystery person may be trying to stop the virus from spreading. Tyreese said, “They didn’t.” He felt that the person responsible for Karen and David’s death had another motive in killing them.
Tyreese realizes that Sasha is sick. Rick assures Tyreese that the person who killed Karen and David will be found. The person will get punished for what they did. Tyreese wants the person found today. He doesn’t want to wait around. Tyreese tells Rick, “All I see you is pumping water. What I feel from you is, murder is okay in this place.” Dude you seriously need to chill! I just felt (start your counting) like flipping tables at what Tyreese said to Rick just now. If I was Rick, I would have punched him in the face again. Rick tells him, “No its not. But we have to save lives first. We have to keep this place going.” Tyreese response to that was, “You worry about that. I’ll worry about what is right.” He walks away from Rick. I really don’t know what Tyreese’s version of right is. But I think a part of his sane mind is missing.
Carl heads off to quarantine. He really doesn’t want to go. I guess he doesn’t want to be around kids his own age. He wants to be with his dad. Rick tells him that he has to look after the others and his sister Judith. To make sure they are safe. Carl knows what he must do if one of them turns. He puts his gun in his holster. Rick tells Carl to only shoot if he has to. Carl tells his dad that he might need to shoot. So he is basically telling Rick that he is going to shoot anyway. Whether if he has to or not.
#7:  Glenn is Sick (-Kev Hart’s Voice- Noooooo!!!!! He’s not ready!!!! He’s not ready!!!!)
Glenn’s symptoms is starting to show. He starts saying to himself that he is going to be okay. Maggie walks in on him and asks if he is okay. Glenn tells her not to come near him. He tells her that he has the virus. Noooooo Glenn!!!! :/
I started to freak out when I realized that Glenn was getting sick. If he dies, I am going to cry. Like I am literally going to flip some tables in anger. Glenn has been with the group from the start. He’s kind of become my homie in a way throughout the show. Okay there are sometimes that I admit where he comes on in a scene and I whisper “I Love You.” I’m sorry. Its true. But there will be some major table flipping going on if he dies. Like seriously flipping of tables in pure emotion. He has grown so much. He can’t die now! He just can’t. I have to admit, I spoiled one part of this episode last Sunday. I posted a status on my Facebook page saying: “OMG, Glenn is sick!!! I am about to cry.” Of course people who were on my friends list who saw this on their timeline wasn’t happy since they didn’t see the episode yet. Sorry. Its my Facebook page, my status, and my life. You can either read it, erase it from your mind, don’t be on Facebook during 9:00pm on Sundays, or just suck it up and watch the episode when you get the time to. I don’t have time to suppress my excitement of what I see for no one. Just chill and deal with it.
#8: Daryl & Michonne Getting Ready to Head to West Peach Tree Tech (Med Run)
Daryl checks the hood of a car and sees that it is a quart low in oil. Michonne tells Daryl that she will go get some oil. Daryl is glad that Michonne is here instead of running off. Michonne tells Daryl, “You know I’m not running off?” Daryl nods in agreement. So she asks Daryl, “Its just going to be me and you like in the good old days?” Daryl says, “Me, you, and Bob (FLIPS TABLES!). Oh great, they are bringing Bob along. The same person that Daryl saved at the Big Spot! store when the wine shelf fell down on him. Just because he was trying to steal some damn wine! And on top of that he was yelling “HEY! HEY!” like a dumb dumb attracting more walkers to come to the group their way. Oh that Bob (FLIPS TABLES!). Awesome!
Michonne and Daryl decides they needed a extra person to go with them to West Peach Tree Tech to get the antibiotics. Rick couldn’t go because he is needed at the prision to make sure the survivors are safe. The only other person that wasn’t sick was Tyreese. Daryl goes to find Tyreese. He is in Cell Block A visiting his sister. He asks if he would go with them to get the medicine. Tyreese wants to stay and keep watch. Daryl pretty much tells him that it is not gonna do any good with him staying here to stand watch. He tells Tyreese, “They are cut off.” It kind of just makes me want to say: “This is another moment of Daryl Dixon: Keeping it Real.” Sounds good right? Daryl tells Tyreese that him, Michonne and Bob will be up at the front gate in case he changes his mind. So eventually, Tyreese accompanies Daryl, Michonne, and Bob on the medicine run. If they can go there and bring the medicine back before tomorrow they will have a good chance of fighting the virus off. People will get better.
Tyreese asks Carol if she could look after Sasha until he gets back from the med run. She agrees. Then she has a slight mental breakdown and cries. What the crap was that all about?
#9: Hershel Makes a Trip/Carol & Lizzie/Beth & Maggie 
In quarantine, Hershel decides to make a trip to the woods. Carl is telling him that he just can’t leave. Hershel pretty much tells Carl: “Look! I ain’t gonna have no 15 year-old kid telling me where to go and not go. I am a grown ass man! I am Hershel Greene aka Santa Claus! If you don’t let me go, then you are going to be on my naughty list for Christmas young man!” I really don’t know why, I went the Santa route. Its just that Hershel looks like Santa. Well you know what means if people don’t obey Carl. He tells him that he has to tell his dad. Now the thing with Carol was understandable. With Hershel it just makes Carl a little bit of a snitch. Why is Hershel going into the woods? Then Carl says to Hershel, “If you have to go, I have to come with you.” Have you not learned your lesson Carl?!?!? You almost died touching a damn deer!!! (FLIPS TABLES!). You just want to go back the Second and Third Season Carl. You don’t want to stay and be responsible Carl now. FLIPS TABLES! Arrrrgh!!!!
Carol is putting the exposed people in solitary confinement. Lizzie finds Carol. She tells her that she’s not feeling so good. Carol tells her that she will help to make sure she gets better. Lizzie asks if she could tuck her in. Carol tells her to go find Glenn because he is one the best bed tuckers she knows. Lizzie is scared. She runs back to hug Carol. She tells Lizzie that its okay and to go on in. After she Lizzie walks in, Carol closes the door. She starts to break down and cry. I know she really wanted to tuck Lizzie in bed herself. But she couldn’t risk getting herself exposed.
Maggie thanks Beth for taking care of Little Asskicker. Beth asks if things are okay. She tells Beth that Glenn has the virus. Beth tells Maggie, “We don’t get to be upset. We all have jobs to do. That’s what Daddy always says. Daryl and Michonne will get the meds. You, Carol, and Rick will help everyone until they get back. And I’ll take care of Judith. Just focus on what you have to do. No matter what happens, we’ll deal with it. We have to.” I mean its cool that Beth is being strong and all but it just feels kind of weird. ‘No matter what happens, we’ll deal with it?’ So Beth if Hershel dies, or Maggie loses Glenn then you just want to act like nothing happened? You don’t want Maggie to cry if one or both of those guys die? You are not going to cry if your dad dies? I don’t want that to happen. I would actually cry if Hershel dies. She didn’t cry when Kyle died. When Daryl told her he died she was like eh. I am worried about Beth, but I respect her for being so strong.
#10: Hershel & Carl in the Woods
While Hershel is picking berries, he asks Carl when Rick gave him his gun back. Carl told Hershel that Rick gave him his gun after what happened in Cell Block D. Hershel tells him that there is a certain responsibility with being able to step back. Carl agrees with him and says, “That can only happen for so long.” Hershel tells Carl that it is peaceful out there in the woods and it is safer being outside than in the prison. Carl disagrees with him. They see a campsite full of walker corpses scattered among the woods. There was one walker  lying there near a tree with half of their body is gone. The walker reaches out toward Carl and Hershel. They begin to make their way back the prison.
As Carl and Hershel head back, they see a lady walker coming at them. She has a bear trap clinging to one of her legs. Carl raises his gun at the lady walker coming towards him. Hershel tells Carl not to shoot. He doesn’t have to?!?! FLIPS TABLES! Hershel really?!?! I love you and all but if there was a walker coming toward me I would shoot it. I know Carl just got his gun back. I think he is responsible enough to know when he needs to use his gun. Remember the time when he killed that young guy in the woods from The Governor’s camp who was unarmed? Carl didn’t have to kill him but he did. He felt threatened. If he didn’t kill him, he might have been killed. So Carl decides not to shoot the lady walker and continues to head back to the prison. There is nothing peaceful about walkers coming in your face. I understand what Hershel is trying to say, but it still dangerous out there.
#11: Hershel to the Rescue
Maggie asks Hershel why he isn’t in quarantine. He tells her that he could help the people who are really sick. The berries that he got from the woods are called Elder Berries. His wife used to make tea with them to drink as a flu remedy. The tea can help reduce the sick survivors fever and keep them stable until meds arrive. Maggie tells her dad that Daryl and Michonne are getting the antibiotics. Hershel tells her that most of those people in quarantine won’t last for 12 hours. He has to help them and Glenn. Hershel goes on to say, “There are so many times, we haven’t been able to do anything, to change what was happening. What was happening to us. We wished we could, but we couldn’t. This time I can. I know I can. So I have to.” Since Caleb (Dr. S) is sick, Hershel is the only one who can help him. Maggie doesn’t want him to do it. Rick tells Hershel that if he goes in there, he is going to get sick. Hershel tells him, “We don’t know that. What we do know is that, but what we do know is that we can get the symptoms controlled.” Rick begs Hershel to just wait. Hershel says, “Listen, damnit! You step outside, you risk your life. You take a drink of water, you risk your life. And nowadays you breath, you risk your life. Every moment now, you don’t have a choice. The only thing you can choose is what you are risking it for.” Hershel is risking his life so he can make the people who are in quarantine feel better. God Bless his soul!
#12: Rick Grimes, Criminal Investigator/Possible Theories/Carol Having Carl Tendencies
Rick is trying to figure out who killed Karen and David.
So here is the crime scene as follows:
#1: You have a burnt trail from where the bodies were drugged out and lit on fire.
#2: Two gas cans that laid right beside the burned bodies.
#3: An opened passageway from Cell Block A the mystery person used.
Rick looks at the opened passageway. He notices blood on the side of the door. He puts his hand by it. The blood could come from the mystery person. They might have cut themselves. The cut didn’t heal properly. Maybe that’s how the blood got on there.
Here are my possible theories on who the mystery person could be: Bob, Caleb (Dr. S), or both. They are the only two that I can think of to have enough strength to drag two bodies outside. Caleb could have done this before he got sick. I could see one person doing it, but they had to have an accomplice helping the mystery person out. I guess we will find out soon enough who did it.
Carol is outside the perimeter trying to unclog the water pump. She pulls the pipe out of the water and starts to shake off whatever was in there that made it clogged. There is a small group of walkers near the water pump outside the gate. Carol continues to shake out the contents of the pipe. Then a small group of walkers go over to Carol in an attempt to attack her. Rick sees what happens. He runs as fast as he can to get to her. Carol ignores what is going on and continues to work on unclogging the pipe. There were two groups of walkers now coming at Carol on either side. Rick is tells her to run. Why don’t you run woman?!?!? FLIPS TABLES! Carol uses her knife to kill a walker. The knife gets stuck in the walker’s head. Rick comes in and saves her. They get back safely to the other side of the perimeter fence. Rick tells Carol, “I thought we planned on doing this tomorrow.” Carol responds back, “There are no tomorrows.” Carol really didn’t listen to Rick. He told her not to go and try to unclog that pipe. For some reason Carol was channeling Carl. She could have gotten herself eaten.
#13: West Peach Tree Tech: Med Run Begins / Killing a Sea of Walkers / Walker Swarm, Tyreese Getting It In with the Kills 
Daryl, Michonne, Tyreese and Bob are making their way to West Peach Tree Tech to get the antibiotics. Daryl pretty much knows that Michonne is trying to hunt The Governor. He tells her that the trail was running cold and he would have been out there with her. Daryl has a settle to score with The Governor too. He is pretty much responsible of killing Merle. Daryl tries to find a radio station, but couldn’t get a signal in. He asked Michonne if he could hand him a CD to put in the car CD player for some riding music. Bob quickly notices a person’s voice coming from the radio. The voice was fading in and out. It was a woman’s voice saying, “Keep Alive. Sanctuary. Terminus.” The words that were being said, I have no idea what they mean.
As Daryl was trying to make the signal come in more clearer, he looks up, and almost hits a walker walking in the middle of the road. He swerves to avoid the walker. Then another come is in the road. He hits that one. Then the next. He stops the car. Next thing you know its a ton of walkers coming towards the car. Its literally thousands of walkers. What the hell is going on here?!?!
Daryl backs up the car hits a few walkers. Michonne tells him to go to the left. The car gets stuck in the mini mountain of walkers. Daryl tells everyone to make a run for the woods and don’t stop. So Daryl and Michonne, got out of the car first. They begin killing walkers left and right. So while Michonne and Daryl are kicking butt in the walker department, Bob gets out of the car and freaks out (FLIPS TABLES!). Yup. Sure he is needed to know what kind of antibiotics to get. But he really sucks in bravery. Man up dude! He starts to shoot walkers all scared. Then you have Tyreese’s butt sitting in the car just chillin. Um you need to get out of the car sir! Then Bob starts yelling Tyreese’s name (FLIPS TABLES!). For what?!?!?! What are you yelling for?!?!?! Bob you supposed to be making a run for the woods. DUDE SHUT UP!!! Tyreese still sitting in the car.
Tyreese gets out of the car (Finally!) and starts going HAM killing walkers. He tells Bob to start heading for the woods (I wouldn’t have done that). So as Bob starts heading for the woods, a sea of walkers were surrounding Tyreese. While Tyreese was killing up a storm, trying to stay alive, Daryl, Michonne, and Bob make a run for it in the woods.
Daryl, Michonne, and Bob make it in the woods. Daryl noticed some bushes rattling in the far distance. It was a couple of walkers with Tyreese appearing along with him. Tyreese is alive! He is not bit or turned into a walker! I give props to him for those epic kills. Daryl grabs Tyreese and the group makes a run for it.
#13: Meanwhile Back in Quarantine/Carol & Rick (Mind is Blown)
Hershel starts giving out the Elder Berry tea to the sick people in quarantine. He gives some to Dr. S (Caleb). He tells him to drink the tea. Dr. S tells him that he shouldn’t be there. Hershel said to him, “Tell me you wouldn’t be.” Dr. S starts to cough up a storm. He sounds like he is getting much worse. Dr. S coughs up some blood. A little bit of his blood got in Hershel’s face. Hershel takes off his mask. Why?!?! (FLIPS TABLES!) He uses the mask to wipe some off the blood that Dr. S coughed up in his face.
Hershel goes to give some tea to Glenn. Glenn keeps telling himself that he’s fine but he’s not. He is sick. OMG! This is about to make me freakin sad yo. Glenn just can’t die. I am telling you, there will be massive table flipping if this goes down. Glenn said the most two perfect words that would sum up how he feels: “This sucks.” It sucks that you are sick. It sucks that you are in quarantine. Glenn feels that this is it. A flu is going to be the end of him. Hershel tells him not to think that way. I think right now Hershel has a lot more faith in Glenn than he does of himself. He tells him, “Now we all have jobs here.” Glenn’s job is to get better and live. Hershel stays by Glenn’s side making sure his fever goes down.
Carol was carrying water jugs when Rick stopped her. He told Carol that trying to unclog the water pump was a stupid thing to do. Carol agrees. Rick tells Carol, “You know, you do a lot for us. For the kids. You sacrificed a lot.” He asked her, “Is there anything you wouldn’t do for the people here?” Carol answered by saying no. Rick asked if Carol she killed Karen and David. Carol looked at Rick and said, “Yes.” She walked away carrying the water jugs (FLIPS TABLES!). Rick solved the mystery. I don’t know what to say.
Well my theories on who killed Karen and David were totally wrong (FLIPS TABLES!). I would have never thought Carol would do something like that. Dear sweet Carol. I wonder why she did it though. When Tyreese finds out, I don’t know what he is going to do.
Lets see if you were able to keep up with the Flipping Tables Count.  Flippin Tables Count: 15 (This correct count may or may not be right) I thought I would actually say it more, but that’s a pretty nice number.
Will Daryl, Michonne, Bob, and Tyreese get back to the prison in time to give those meds to the sick people in quarantine? Will Rick punish Carol for killing Karen and David? How will Rick tell Tyreese that Carol was the one who murdered them? Will Bob stop yelling? Will Glenn stay alive and not die? Find out the answers to these and many more questions on next week’s episode recap.
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^

TWD Season 4: Episode 2, Infected (Recap)


Some people thought that this past episode of the TWD entitled, “Infected” was just a boring weepfest. Honestly to me, I actually thought it was a pretty good episode. Here I will now summarize 11 moments from the past episode. Yes I said 11. Sorry for the short intro.  I am just excited to get into this episode recap.
Let’s get started:

#1: Mystery Person Causing Trouble

So as the start of the episode begins with a mystery person, holding a flashlight while feeding rats to the walkers. As if eating dead or live animals  and people were enough for these guys. It definitely poses a new threat to the prison crew (That’s my nickname for them. Just made it up ^_^).
Who is the person trying to cause more chaos in the Zombie Apocalypse? I know as the show progresses, I will start developing my theories on who it could be. All I can guess is that it is someone within the group. It may come from Rick’s camp or the citizens of The Governor camp. I just don’t know who yet.
#2: Nerdy Walker Patrick Starts Biting Others
In the last episode (30 Days Without an Accident), Patrick got sick, died, and turned into a walker. Now he is hungry and stumbling around. He goes into this man’s cell while he is sleeping and starts chomping on his neck. While this is happening everyone else is sleep. No one knew what was going on at first. That kind of made me mad. Someone should have been up checking the cells to make sure everyone is okay. I mean I know this just happened out of pure randomness. But come on now! Patrick could have been killed and then there wouldn’t be any other lives lost. More about that on the #4 event (All Hell Breaks Loose – Security Breach).
#3: Father & Son Moment – Part 1
Remember the gun that Rick dug out of the dirt while he was doing his farming duties? Well that gun belonged to his son Carl. Since Rick stepped down from being the leader of the group for certain reasons, he didn’t want Carl to carry a gun. Apparently he just wanted Carl to help with harvesting vegetables, feeding the pigs, and brushing Michonne’s horse down after she returns from a run.
Carl did have to use a gun. He used it to help Michonne when she was attacked by some walkers as she contemplated on making another supply run
(In Code: Searching for The Governor). Carl told his dad that he didn’t mean to use the gun but he had to help Michonne. I know in a way Rick is trying to protect his son. He just doesn’t want Carl to make dumb choices like he did. Maybe Rick is protecting himself. He doesn’t want the decisions he makes to hurt more people. Carl was just doing what he had to do save Michonne.
#4: All Hell Breaks Loose – Security Breach 
Well, the domino effect started. Patrick pretty much started it. He bites the man that was sleeping on the bed. He dies, turns into a walker, and start looking for a live victim to chomp on. Then the cycle repeats. It was just a freakin bloodbath and panic in Cell Block D. A lot of lives were lost.
All of this could have been avoided, if they would have killed Patrick just in time. But then again, they didn’t know that he was sick. They didn’t know that he was going to die and turn into a walker. Rick and Daryl made sweeps of the cells to make sure that there were no more walkers in the block. You could tell that Rick didn’t want kill the off the remaining walkers that were in the cells. But he had to do it.
The security breach is making a lot of people nervous and wondering about what is going on.
#5: Ah, Carol 
There was a man that Carol helped named Ryan. He had two girls Lizzie and Mika. Ryan was bit pretty bad. So much so that he was going to lose his life. He asked Carol to look after his two girls as if they were her own. Carol agrees to look after them.
Carol brought in Lizzie and Mika so that they could say goodbye to their dad. Ryan quickly passed away. Carol handed a knife to Lizzie so she could kill her dad before he turns. This dude was pretty big. So if he turned they would have a problem on their hands. Lizzie freaked out and refused to do it. Carol took the knife quickly and stabbed Ryan. Mika tries to calm down Lizzie. Mind you Mika is the little sister and Lizzie is the big sister. Ironic isn’t it?
Carol finds Lizzie standing in front of the perimeter fence outside the prison. She gets on Lizzie for not killing her dad’s corpse. Carol tells Lizzie that she is weak and that she has to act fast every time. Lizzie can’t be no wimp when it comes to walkers coming all in face ready to eat her. She’s got to be gangsta. Lizzie cries telling Carol, “He’s dead. He was special and now he’s dead.” Carol thought Lizzie was talking about her dad. Then she starts talking about a walker that had a name tag that read Nick on it. Mika tells Carol, “Lizzie isn’t weak. She is messed up.” I honestly don’t know what that was all about. I am pretty sure we will know more maybe in the upcoming episode.
Inside the prison, Carl and Carol have a conversation. She asks him not to tell Rick that she is teaching the kids about how to use weapons to survive. Carl doesn’t want to lie to his dad. He asks Carol if she will tell the kids parents. She says no.  She explains that if Rick finds out maybe he could tell their parents. They may or may not understand why Carol is teaching them survival skills. So the heat would go off of her and be on Rick. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t want to tell Rick face to face. She doesn’t want to take full responsibility of what she is doing. But I do think what Carol is doing is smart. Those kids need to know how to survive if they get confronted with a walker. They have to protect themselves. She could have just been honest with Rick and told him what she is doing. I think Rick would have been cool with it. She shouldn’t have brought Carl in the middle of it.
I can also understand why Carl doesn’t want to keep anything from his dad. I also think that he didn’t want to be in the middle of anything that involved his dad and someone else. Those are grown people’s issues. He is just a kid. More on that in event #10: Father & Son Moment – Part 2.
#6: Flu or Something Else???
Is it the flu? Is it a virus? Who knows? It is making people sick and die at a rapid pace. With Patrick there were no bits or wounds on him. So as Hershel, Bob the Medic, and another guy who seems to be a medical professional examines a walkers body (His name was Charlie). They found no wounds or bites on him either. The three person medical team concluded that there is a virus afoot.
Hershel believes the virus may have been contracted was probably spread from the pigs that Rick was taking care of. He declares that the people who have came in contact and those who haven’t should be separated until they look into this more. So everybody has to be careful to avoid close contact for awhile. That means Glenn and Maggie can’t hug or make out. Tyreese and Karen can’t be in kissy face mode. Just to be on the safe side.
D Block is considered not safe for the people who have came in contact with the virus. Karen told Hershel and the medic team (Bob and the other guy) that he noticed another person named David coughing. She started coughing too. The council decides to put the ones who are sick in Cell Block A (Death Row). It is more clean and sterile there. So Karen and David are the first ones to be put into that cell block.
So a case of Swine Flu is literally killing people and turning in to walkers huh? Crazy!
#7: Rick Scared of Being the Leader Again
Now I understand why they have a council. The council collectively make decisions in the group now that Rick took a break from being the leader for awhile. I honestly believe that he is scared. He’s afraid of making irrational decisions for the group that will jeopardize thier lives if he becomes a leader again.
Daryl told Rick that he would be better in the fight if he had his gun. Even though Rick earned his time by choosing not resort to violence, he tells him if it wasn’t for the choices he made to get them here thus far, they wouldn’t be alive right now. Rick shouldn’t feel bad about the choices and sacrifices he’s made in order to keep his crew alive. I know at times it haunts him. But he is a great leader. I know he is going to come back and be an even better when he feels ready to do so.
#8: What the Crap is Going On Here?!?!
So there were a ton of walkers about to tear down one of the fences in the prison yard. Like it was give in any minute. Which will make it the second security breach of the day. While the crew tries to fight off the clusters of walkers, Sasha finds something incredibly strange. She finds a bunch of half eaten rats on the ground. Remember the mystery person who was feeding the rats to walkers in the middle of the night? I guess this is what he or she wanted. To leave a mark and to start putting the pieces together to find out who did it.
Rick gets an idea and tells Daryl to get the truck (Whooooo Rick ^_^) . He puts all the pigs in on the flatbed of the truck and fed them to the walkers. Rick’s strategy was to separate the huge group of walkers into little groups. So he fed the pigs one by one luring the walkers away from the fence making it easy to properly secure it.
I know this means that it leaves less food for the group, but it stopped the walkers from breaking the fence down endangering the prison. I am proud of Rick for thinking of that awesome idea. He seemed a little bit hesitant to do it, but I am glad he did.
#9: Little Asskicker & Michonne Have a Moment 
This moment right here, had me going awwwww.
Little Asskicker (Judith) spit up on Beth. She asks Michonne to if she could hold her while she gets a cloth or something clean herself up. Michonne was scared but she held her anyway. As Michonne starts to hold her, she breaks down and cries.
We don’t really know much of Michonne’s story. Why did she get emotional holding Judith? I really hope that as the season goes along, they will share some of her story. It will be interesting to know more about her.
That was the first time I ever seen Michonne show any type of emotion. It was pretty cool to see that. She is pretty badass but presenting a different side of her that shows her a little bit vulnerable was quite refreshing. I know there are moments where Michonne just want to break down and cry her eyes out. There is nothing wrong with that. Showing emotion is what makes us human. Michonne is just an awesome human being.  Little Asskicker serves as the shining light out of the whole group that gives people hope to keep on living.
#10: Father & Son Time Moment – Part 2
Rick believes the pigs weren’t the reason people got sick from the virus. He believes that the people are ones who made the pigs sick. He tells Carl that they have both have to stay way from Judith (Little Asskicker) for awhile just to be safe until things calm down. Carl tells Rick about Carol teaching the kids how to use weapons. He suggests that Rick should let Carol continue to teach them. Even though he wasn’t supposed to know, Rick told Carl that she wouldn’t stop her or say anything. Rick gives Carl back his gun. Rick also gets his own gun (from the tool box). I think the Rick Grimes we all know and love may be making a comeback.
#11: Uh-Oh…
Tyreese made his way to Cell Block A to visit Karen. He noticed that she wasn’t in her cell. There was also a trail of blood on the floor. He followed the trail till he made it outside. He found the dead bodies of Karen and David burned with a gas can lying right in front of them. This freaked Tyreese out.   This marks the third security breach of the episode. Someone inside the prison burned those two bodies. Damn mystery person again. Or is it more than one person who is in on sabotaging the prison? My theories on that on the next episode recap.
Things are starting to get very interesting people. Can’t wait to see the next episode!!!
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^
