Let's face it, that's all that really mattered in this episode. Apart from Rick's sudden decision to mess around with the neighbour, but more of that later.
After last week, we know Carol is playing it safe, or 'invisible' as she calls it. The episode goes on like normal, (ie; we've reached the filler episodes) and Carol goes to steal some guns.
This is the point of the episode we all cowered back into the corners of our lounges, mouths gaping and gasped in horror. Carol is a bad-ass. Literally. A threatening-to-leave-a-child-for-dead-in-a-zombie-apocalypse bad-ass.
The opening scenes are centred on Sasha with a handful of random family photos that she dutifully takes to the woods to shoot. I'd say, she's a little messed up with this whole zombies taking over the world thing. Just as I've pointed out before: This is where we're going to learn the most about how they have all been affected.
Let's get onto the most important character: Daryl. He's made friends with Aaron, who has decided his boyfriend doesn't cut the mustard when it comes to recruiting new zombie apocalypt-onites. Aaron tells Daryl he trusts his judgement when it comes to people, so straight off the bat, I've immediately decided Aaron is the bad guy because I've now grown to like him.
Every time I start to trust someone...
Rick's finally over Lori and decides to hit on one of the neighbours, Jessie - the woman who cut his hair last episode. He kisses her at a party...a party in front of all the other neighbours...after her husband sat on the porch like an old man with a shotgun watching over the town, and commented on the fact his wife had cut Rick's hair.
Remember all that stuff I said about 'fitting in'?
At the risk of making this blog post a saga, I have to mention The Scarlet Letter. A red letter A? Really? Is this a look back at Lori's affair with Shane which resulted in Judith? Could Alexandria really be the place for Rick to try to find forgiveness for his sins?
