A sneak peek at tonight’s Game of Thrones!
I have read a couple of reviews about tonight’s season ender for The Walking Dead and I am wondering when did everyone become so negative?
What you call “slow” I call a build up.
What you call not the caliber of your typical season finale, I say is a set-up to a season opener.
I get all the laments… Many people have the attention span of a gnat. These character-specific episodes were like plays that were strung together that enabled us to understand where these characters were mentally and what they were capable of… Like Carol offing a kid to protect a baby, or Glenn risking another to find his wife, or Rick killing to protect himself and those he loves. Even fan favorite Daryl had his moment to shine, but he realized that he could not regress, all he could do was ride the wave until he could find his out. But, what happened to Rick in the finale puts all these other episodes to shame.
Rick is the show, sorry to say it to the Daryl fans out there… But, it is the truth. We started with Rick and we will end it with him. So watching Rick go off the rails because he is fearing for the safety of his son at the hands of a rapist was both terrifying and satisfying.
As a parent, I would have done the same thing. Actually, I would have done worse.
Let me digress, this is the moment that we have been waiting for. The moment where the two halves of the Rick we have come to know very well come to terms with one another in this new wild and dangerous world. Yes, he knows what he did was a bit unhinged, but this is the new norm.
Now, the majority of the group is in a storage container at this cannibalistic hippie commune… But, these hippies have no idea what they are up against and that is amazing.
Yes, there are questions to be answered:
1. Where are Tyrese, Carol, and Judith
2. Where is Beth?
3. How are they getting out of this mess?
4. When does the next season begin?
I can’t wait for next season! I love my Killer Rick! I want to see this place go down!
Are you with me?
Awwww… Such a good son.

…I think the hardest thing to see is when your child suffers a broken heart, is belittled, or is just down on himself or herself. We remember what it was like, because we were young once. We want to protect you 24/7, but that is impossible. Do we want to slice the person that cause the harm from stem to stern, yes. But, all we can do is give a hug and give some sage advice that hopefully will make you understand that this is just a blip on your lengthy journey through life. It may hurt like hell right now and may seem like it will last forever, but it doesn’t. You will get over it and you will find happiness again… trust us.
