What’s Big Cat? We don’t get it in the UK, so I just assumed it was a Lion bar-esque type of chocolate treat. I googled it and much to my dismay, nothing came of my search. So apparently you can’t get it anywhere in the world, unless the manufacturers specifically specialise in snacks of the apocalypse, which is fine by me as long as its tasty, and I’m around long enough to find out why Michonne looked so disappointed when it was snatched away by greedy little douche. He not only took the Big Cat, but let her keep something called ‘Cruncho’ (potentially a bootleg brand of chocolate, like that shit you buy in the market for 10p, or the overseas stuff they import from Lithuania with 2% chocolate in it). The funniest part of the exchange was that Rick got NOTHING not even a ‘want some?’ He then kinda just stood there, fake smiling. That was really awkward. I used to kind of fancy Rick. Growing up in the UK I got to see Andrew Lincoln play some really edgy characters in his career, including a coked up young lawyer in 90s drama ‘This Life‘ (to my American friends, it was like ‘party of five’ but with more sex and lots of drugs).
So to see him now, with his fake southern drawl (he’s English btw), grey beard, slightly baggy-eyed, getting snubbed by his dickhead child, you cant help but feel sorry for him. He just stood there and took their shit, and acted like he didn’t care that they were bonding, and leaving him out. He lost all his charm. You’ve been stripped of your badge in more ways than one Rick.
Was It Shane that kept his spark alive? Or that nagging wife that would make me slash my wrists way before the zombies got me? Who knows…
All I know is that one critic refered to this new ‘family’ unit, as the ‘glimmer of hope’ during such a bleak time in human history. I think the glimmer of hope comes in the form of Daryl’s crossbow, but call me a realist. I’m not suggesting I don’t dig their playful banter, and their bad jokes, I’m just saying eventually they’ll grow to despise each other and potentially eat each other in terminus.
Speaking of which…
Some other shit happened recently. Carol confessed to Tyrese that she killed everyone and surprisingly her brain wasnt blown out, Lizzie murdered her sister during an escalating spiral of crazy, and looking at flowers will never have the same meaning ever again. We find out the key elements to a ‘white-trash brunch’ thanks to Daryl, Beth gets kidnapped and we havent heard her sing for 2 episodes, and most importantly Maggie and Glen (yawn) are reunited, and true love conquers all.
Oh and some of them get to Terminus
And find a man-sized barbecue
And a fuller figured woman with rosy cheeks and an apron
and a menu??
Ok no menu. Even though I’m sure BBQ Beth is the starter.
Luckily Lizzie gets reincarnated as Martin’s daughter in true detective, so there is still hope for her career.
