So we have had a few days to let this weeks episod of the Walking Dead sink in. What did you think?
This weeks episode found the group struggling with accepting their current situation in Alexandria. Some find it easier to give in to some of the benefits of Alexandria while others still haven't completely put their gaurd down.
Don't confuse me saying they give into that easy as them being weak because I don't mean that at all. Take for instance Rick and the now infamous shower and beard cutting scene. Or Michonne brushing her teeth for 20 minutes straight. Some like Daryl are holding on to the fact that they can't trust anyone except each other and isn't giving in to the temptation of a warm shower. Some of them are just more open to the idea that this may indeed be a safe place.
Both sides are cautious and Deana, the leader of Alexandria, conducts interviews with our group members to obtain more information and to place them in jobs in the town. The jobs make me think of the movie Maze Runner, you have Runners who go get supplies, Leaders and then Gatherers who cook, clean etc. Some get their jobs by the end of this episode while some don't.
This episode also introduced us to a few new characters. Carl's new friends Ron, Mikey and Enid. Jesse the new good looking woman on the show and her husband. Deana, her son Aiden and his pal, plus a couple other characters.
Highlights of this episode:
Rick and Michonne were asked to be Constables of Alexandria
Carol acts weak in her interview and while turning over her weapons
Jesse - the new hot girl!
Glenn rocks Aiden
Rick's stashed gun has been taken
Carl tries to make friends
All in all it was a really good episode and I'm looking forward to see how the interaction goes with the group and the members of Alexandria. The winner of the highlights I noted above: Glenn's right fist square on Aiden's nose. I was hoping it was going to happen earlier in the episode and it finally did. It was the little cherry on top of this episode for me.
