The Walking Dead: Inmates Review

What happened to everyone else

The Walking Dead: Inmates Review

Last week it was Rick, Carl & Michonne, this week we find out what happened to everyone else.

Darryl & Beth made it out together, and are tracking possible survivors.  Their tracking leads them to footprints, grapes and a zombie with mad ninja skills.  How else to explain how a lone zombie can sneak up on them except with ninja skills? 

Anyway, turns out the survivors they were tracking were Tyrese, Lizzie, Mika and Baby Judith.  Oh praise Lord Xenu, Baby Judith is alive and well.  Why was her car seat in the mid season finale all bloodied up but she has no scratch on her?  Because reasons!  We know it was Tyrese and the girls that Darryl and Beth were tracking because we see the grapes, and the dead rabbits.  That may be a clue to the identity of the person who was feeding rats to zombies in the prison, we see you Lizzie.  At this point it doesn’t matter who it was because that seems to have been all but forgotten on this show.

Still, all signs point to Lizzie who is as cold as ice and was about 10 seconds from murdering Baby Judith until Carol shows up.  Yes, Carol is back.  She’s been gone for around 5 episodes so it’s been less than in week in the show’s time.  Poor Tyrese is still unaware it was Carol who burned his girl’s body so he was all happy to see her.  Good on Carol for not revealing that info right then and there cause that would’ve been awkward.  What’s Carol been up to?  Whatever it was to she lied about it.  The group takes advice from a friendly dying guy who Tyrese couldn’t save (Fun fact #1, the guy is the ninja zombie that attacked Daryl & Beth).    The guy sent them to sanctuary, a placed called Terminus.  For those that have read the comics this may end up taking the place of Alexandria or Negan’s Sanctuary.

Maggie was chilling with Sasha and Drunk Bob who is looking pretty good for a guy that got shot and hasn’t had a drink in a few hours.  He also looks like he wants to bang Sasha hard.  All three of them head out to find Glen last seen on a bus according to Maggie.  The three of them eventually find Glen’s bus except it’s full of walkers.  Maggie needs to make sure if Glen is dead or alive so they let the zombies off the bus and quickly dispatch of them one by one.  No Asian Zombie inside the bus, so we’re all good, Glen is alive.  But where is he?

Glen is still passed out in the prison but wakes up just before he becomes zombie food.  He decides he wants to live and find Maggie so equips the riot gear, grabs some booze and gets the hell out of there.  On his way he stumbles upon Tara who at this point may possibly be the last lesbian on Earth.  She’s guilty for the whole killing of Hershel and prison shootout but Glen sort of forgives her because he needs her help to find Maggie.  The two of them make it out of the prison and stumble upon more zombies down the road.  Glen handles most of them until he passes out.  Does he still have the flu?  They better not go back to all the coughing going on during the first half of the season.  Tara crushes the only zombie Glen couldn’t get to and then boys and girls, the best thing of this entire episode happened.  Yes, the show has finally introduced Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene.  Yeah buddy!!  Can’t wait for next week to see more from them.

Fun Fact #2:  The Bob of Bobs, Mr. Bob Trate’s birthday was 2/17 the same day as one Michael Jeffrey Jordan.  Make sure to wish Jordan a happy birthday in the comments below :)

 CANNOT believe they kept the baby alive. Now there has to be a nasty on screen death for the baby. I thought they found a less nasty way around it at the prison. Guess not.

Hanso, I just can't just use the initials: Laughing My A$$ Off!!!

Lizzie is a real messed up kid. I wouldn't even want to fall asleep near her. I'm assuming she's the one who killed Tyrese' girlfriend and not Carol.

Poor Ninja Zombie guy. He's all alone and and I guess it would be pretty hard for Tyrese and the girls to just offer to kill someone still alive. I'd find it difficult.

I never read the comics but I assume Abraham, Rosita and Eugene are pretty interesting characters. Hope they make things fun...and safe. Please no more Governor types.

 

Happy belated B-Day, Robert and praise Xenu's mighty name!

"Yes, the show has finally introduced Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene."

 

What does that mean?   FINALLY????  They didn't meet up with them until AFTER they left the prison anyway!  There's no reason to say "finally" whenever they entered perfectly in time.

Now, if there WAS a reason to complain about the episode, it would be these two reasons:

1) Carol shows up out of nowhere?!?  That was pretty lame.  I wouldn't have mind it if she drove past them on the road and slammed the brakes or something like that.

2) How did Glenn end up on the crosswalk where the tank had blasted it?  It's inconceivable that he would have made it there.  The bridge was destroyed while he was still on the bus.  And there would have been no way for him to have ran across to the other building without his girl seeing him because of where she was pinned down.  I thought that was out of sync, too.

I do not believe they will be running into Negan any time soon.  It's too soon.  I don't care if they have really stuck with the comic.  It's still way too soon.  I think the Eugene storyline is going to play out (will not share) and I hope they find the cannibals, too.

Nobody's mentioned that the director did the same with the pose at the end of this episode with Eugene, Abraham and Rosita as when they revealed Michonne.  Very cool there.

 All signs point to Lizzie killing Tyreses girl, and Carol feeding up to cover up. That girl is a whack job.

 Hanso...You made me laugh as usual but you forgot one thing. You forgot to mention how pleased Jarrod became when they finally brought up the Radio Channel Event that I've been pissed about since about episode 4....i.e...Terminus. They finally acknowledged the place said on the radio...that nobody seemed to talk about afterwards. Yes..Thank you, writers. Good job.

But...bad job on having Tara not remember she had a niece...not a nephew. That's a very large error unless maybe it's explained she was in shock. She was in shock after all. But to forget the gender of your sister's kid..That's a big error, writers.

So writers. Good job on bringing up Terminus (first brought up in the Radio Channel Event). Bad job on having a character forget whether she had a niece or a nephew.

And Lizzie went Full Psycho. You never go Full Psycho.

Lmao Hanso. 

I too get so annoyed at the zombie ninjas. Like seriously, when things are dead quiet in the woods, you should be able to hear a moaning zombie dragging feet on shrubs twigs leaves and crap!! There are alot more "wtf" moments on this show than it used in the first 2 or 3 seasons.

 There was blood on the Judith's seat because  Tyrese has a bleeding arm, so that means that got it blood on it when he reached for her. I guess...

Lizzie is "Ben" from the comic's pretty much. Psychopath child.

Anyone else notice that Daryl and Beth walked down the tracks instead of up the tracks ?  They are going the wrong way.

Can't wait till they get back to Rick/Carl/Michonne. My favs. 

and yess.. SGT Abraham Ford !!!!!

@dough, it means that I've been waiting since October 2013 (possibly a little bit earlier) when it was first announced that Michael Cudlitz would be playing Sgt. Abrhama Ford, to see the character pop up on the show.  So I finally get to see him, and looking forward to what they do with him.

I don't think Terminus will be Negan's Sanctuary but you never know with the show.  I think it will be subbing for Alexandria.  It'd be cool if they took them out Atlanta though, change the setting a bit.  Also, would like to see winter finally hit on this show.

@Jarrod, damn yo I didn't even realize that Terminus was that thing you were obsessing about back earlier in the season.  It gives me hope that the writers will eventually get back to the rat feeder.
