The Walking Dead Season 5 Mid season review.

The will to go through any lengths to survive the zombie apocalypse is strong within Rick and his group. The strength they all have is slowly weakening as they embark upon a new chapter in their lives while they search for a safe place to rebuild their lives and the world around them.

I was somewhat disappointed in the events of last night’s episode. After the mourning of Beth’s death, the group tries to bounce back. Noah convinces Rick and group to go to his hometown in order to seek refuge in his family’s gated community. (Which at this point I believed was the gated community that was introduced in the comic books.) Rick agrees, so they travel to Richmond with the hope of starting something new.

Things take a turn for the worse quickly as Rick, Glen, Michone, Noah and Tyrese go to the housing community to check things out. They realize that the place has fallen and has a small walker presence. Noah tries to go to his house to see if there are any survivors and Tyrese gets bitten by one of Noah’s brother’s. Noah runs to get help, and in that process Tyrese experiences the wrath of death approaching him. Beth, Mika, her sister, Bob, the governor, and even the baseball cap Terminus guy all show up to give Tyrese a lesson in life and death.

Rick and Michone make their best efforts to cut off Tyrese’s arm in order to save him but in the end it did not help. Tyrese dies in the car on the way back to the rest of the group.
Rick and the others, especially Sasha take his death very hard, and are feeling broken down at this point. I really liked Tyrese, and was hoping that he would have lasted longer. He lasted longer in the books and did not struggle with the same things he struggled with on the show.

The episode displayed some very interesting imagery as events unfolded. Some were hard to understand in the beginning, but by the end it became clear. I think that the presence of the past dead cast members were unnecessary and out of place. I really did not think that the whole episode was going to focus of Tyrese. I really thought that it was going to have a little more direction. I felt that the flow was disjointed and I also did not understand why there were so many commercial breaks. They seemed to have interrupted the show every three minutes and I felt as though it was a reflection of the writer’s lack of direction.

I really hope that things start to mirror the deep complexity that makes up Kirkman’s world.

The heat is on in Port Charles as the Fake Luke doges another bullet in getting his real identity discovered. His deceitful ways go a long way, and his dramatic production at the Haunted Star could have almost been a confession. Fluke really thought that Dante was going to go up in flames along with the old house, but he was wrong. I just hope that when he leaves the party he doesn’t run into Nathan and Dante leaving the property. Now that Nathan just found Dante, Dante will spill the beans but hopefully they will make it to GH before anything or anyone stops them.

Within the next few minutes the Haunted Star is expected to go up in smoke, but at this point I don’t think that anyone will be able to stop it. Jake Doe is in the process of being interrogated by Sam, which will lead her into a bigger hole, because he does not remember anything. The police department will not be any help to her because the new commissioner is also under Helena’s control. It is going to take Sam a long time to really find out everything about Jake.

Sonny, Julian, and Ava are all in hot water as they battle with Carlos and Johnny. I hope that Sonny kills Johnny, but once Sonny does take the first shot, Carlos will give up, and try to convince Julian and Ava that he wants back in with them.

Franco left Ava, Julian and Sonny, and is on his way to save Nina from Heather, but at this point I think Nina deserves whatever Heather is planning to do to her. Franco will probably shoot Heather, and tell Nina that he loves her. I am waiting for them to finally share a romantic moment. I hope this is the last we see of Heather. I am tired of her pointless story lines.

As for Sonny and his new crew, I really hope that they can make it to the Haunted Star to save everyone, but since Johnny is in their way, I don’t think they will make it.
I am excited to see how things turn out!
