How About Bob? #TheWalkingDead

Well, vile doesn’t begin to describe the end of Sunday night’s episode. But before I get to that I’d like to acknowledge the The Wire connection:

  1. Seth Gilliam
  2. Chad Coleman
  3. Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Hopefully, after Boardwalk Empire has its series finale we can get Michael Kenneth Williams to play a one-man, zombie-killin’ army.

But it goes to show you with The Walking Dead, anytime things seem too happy, too content, something really bad is just around the corner. I don’t think anyone thought Rick and Company had killed all the cannibals, but I honestly thought it would take them a little bit longer to regroup. Like maybe until episode 6 or somewhere around the mid-season finale.

I think it’s obvious where one thing is going. It was set up nicely early on in this episode. Bob, ever the optimist, put a silver lining around every cloud Sasha could throw at him. Then Bob gets bitten by a walker in that basement. Yes, Bob got bitten. After he steps outside the church to have himself a little cry he’s just realized the grand ole time everyone else is having isn’t for him. Cue the cannibals. They eat his leg and give him his silver lining. He was going to die anyway, now at least he’s slowed them down with tainted meat.

I thought Terminus would be a major place throughout this season and it was dashed in the season opener. I think the same is going to happen with these cannibals. The mystery is how Morgan is going to be a big player this season.
