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 ^_^.

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 ^_^
