Hey TV addicts,
The Walking Dead gave us the ultimate lesson in ambush and Downtown Abbey shed more blood than a period drama is legally allowed. Let me dish.
SPOILER ALERT: Click HERE for the list of shows I watch before you spoil your TV appetite.
The Walking Dead’s JSS
This must be the show’s craziest yet. There has always been a tradition of planned war in TWD, in which fans have a week to mentally prepare for the bloodshed. But the writers gave no damns about how we felt. They just decided now was the time of the Wolves ambush, right smack in Carol’s baking time.
So, of course she’s pissed. You do not mess with a former homemaker’s baking time. She transforms into Warrior!Carol (I see a fanfic already being created) and tries to clean the town of the Wolves scum.
The warrior mode becomes contagious and soon everyone remaining is ready and willing to wipe them out. Jessie got her first kill. That was interesting.
Carl made sure to kill someone. You know he’s always trying to fit in.
Morgan tried not to kill anyone until one wolf got cocky.
The Wolves may seem like desperate savages. But look how they had Team Rick distracted from the beginning with that zombie army. And I have no doubt in my mind that Enid is a spy. I hope Carl can whip her back to Team Rick. She’s too young for me to dislike.
A broken end for the episode. Recovery will be bleak. I have one weak to get ready.
Downtown Abbey’s Season 6 Episode 5
Downton Abbey is hardly featured in these posts. The period drama doesn’t bank much on wild, fantastical moments. So, even if we knew Robert Crawley was ill and we knew he would be suffer more due to ignorance, I can honestly say no one was prepared to see this:
The last season is coming with all kinds of stops! Thank goodness Lord Grantham is still alive. Hopefully Downton Abbey will revert back to decor and propriety. I can’t take this kind of gore from my period dramas.
More madness next week, addicts!
