Good grief ! Stop killing off the major characters !  First Beth gets shot on the last ep of the first half , last Nov. then right out of the box on the start of the 2nd half, Tyreese gets bitten by a walker and dies. Apparently from blood loss because they hack off his arm to prevent the virus from spreading. But it didn't help in that case because of the massive blood loss. The crew was covered in fake blood after that scene. We recall that they did save Hershel two seasons ago by cutting off his leg after he was bitten.

At least Chad Coleman has a movie or series project going on the SyFy Chan. and is working on another movie project with some friends.

'The Walking Dead' Mid-Season Premiere Recap: The Group Loses Another Member
Sunday, February 08, 2015

Alan Danzis
Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

Hallucinations have been used only a few times on The Walking Dead before, but what's new in the mid-season premiere is the idea of us seeing some images of what's to come later in the episode in the opening minutes. Except, you wouldn't know that the first time watching it. In fact, it might take you until about 30 minutes in to realize you're seeing some flashbacks and also seeing some flashforwards for what is to come.

You might have also assumed that what you're witnessing and hearing about refers to Beth, who died in the mid-season finale. But, alas, this is the show's way of preparing us for the death of Tyreese.




Arriving at Shirewilt Estates

In "What Happened and What's Going On," the group decides to head to Richmond, Virginia, at the recommendation of Noah, who used to live there. Along the way, we're treated to an amazing monologue by Tyreese about his father. It's great to see the show remember what made the first part of this season so much better than the other seasons -- terrific attention paid to character traits and experiences.

Rick's car pulls off near some wrecked cars on the side of the road. His group (Glenn, Tyreese, Michone and Noah) make their way through the woods before arriving at Shirewilt Estates, a community of homes. Once they make it inside, they find it has been overrun by zombies. Noah collapses on the ground in grief.

As the group decides what to do, Michonne starts to kill the walkers that are slowly approaching them. Tyreese offers to stay with Noah, while the group kills the walkers. Rick calls Carol, who is with the rest of the group, and tells her that "It's gone."

Rick tells Glenn that he wasn't sure if this place was compromised. But since Beth was so determined to get Noah back here, he wanted to do that for her.

Tyreese tells Noah not to give up. He tells him he refused to give up and he was able to bring Judith back to her dad. "Noah, this isn't the end," he says. Noah gets up and breaks into a hobble run for a home a few houses down. Not surprisingly, it was his home.

"You don't want to go in there," Tyreese tells him. But Noah wants to see it for himself. "Me first," Tyreese says, taking out a knife.

Inside, there's a dead woman on the floor with a huge chunk missing out of her head. Noah covers the body with a nearby blanket. Tyreese hears whispering and walks down the hall, where he hears walker sounds coming from a room. He stops off in another room and discovers Noah's twin brother, laying on the bed, with a huge chunk missing out of his stomach.

And then -- holy shoot -- Tyreese gets bitten by a young boy as he's distracted by the photos on the wall. Noah comes in and stabs the boy with a model airplane. Tyreese is bleeding very, very badly, however.



Tyreese is Bitten

As Tyreese bleeds out, he starts to hallucinate Martin, one of Gareth's friends that threatened to kill Judith that Tyreese wound up killing last season. He also hallucinates Bob, as well a British radio voice talking about the violence going on around the world. (Clearly, these were real news bulletins Tyreese heard when the apocalypse started.) Then the Governor pops in to say hello, as well as Lizzie and Mika. It's a who's who of hallucinations.

The hallucinations stop when another walker attacks Tyreese. He tries to hit it with his hammer but drops it. Realizing he needs to distract the walker, Tyreese lets him bite the same arm that's already been bitten before knocking the zombie out with a nearby rock on a book shelf.

Outside, Michonne is trying to convince Rick that this place can work as a home, but he's not convinced. While trying to convince Rick and Glenn, Michonne stumbles upon bodies that have been cut in half, right at the waist.

Michonne then tries to convince Rick and Glenn that perhaps Washington would be safer than where they are. Surprisingly, Rick agrees. And then they hear Noah's screams. But they're not screams for Tyreese as they are for himself! He's being attacked by walkers. (He is unbitten, however.)

Noah then tells them Tyreese has been bitten and they run back to his house. Back there, Tyreese is not looking good and is hallucinating again -- this time, Beth is there with Lizzie, Mika, Bob, Martin and the Governor. Tyreese stands up and we get a great shot of the amount of blood he's lost to the carpet on the floor. He stands up to the Governor hallucination and says, "It's not over." He then gives a rambling monologue about not giving up and doing everything that you can do to be good.

The Governor hallucination pushes him to the floor and tells him he "has to pay the bill." Tyreese is feeling guilt of all the things we've seen him do, but there's some part of his hallucinations that want him to forgive himself and move on.

Then there's that awesome moment of Tyreese hallucinating Mike and Lizzie pulling on his arm. But it's Rick pulling it, while Glenn holds Tyreese down so Michonne can chop off his arm.

They make their way outside with a barely-conscious Tyreese and kill all the walkers standing between them and the front gate of the estates. Tyreese is dying as the group drags him through the woods and over the barbed wire as Tyreese continues to hallucinate. Tyreese and the group make it back to the car and Rick radios Carol to tell her what's happening.

As Rick gets the car started and floors it, he hits one of the cars in front of him, breaking the windows. Out spill the tops of walker bodies, missing their bottoms and arms. (So, clearly, they're the other parts of the walkers Michonne discovered earlier, but why were they put there?)

In the car, Tyreese continues to hallucinate and sees Beth driving the car, with Bob, Lizzie and Mike as passengers. Tyreese dies, looking up at the sun.

The car pulls over on the side of the road and the group lifts Tyreese out. They cover his body with a blanket and then bury him. Father Gabriel reads a prayer as Sasha and the others look on and say goodbye in their minds.

Other Odds and Ends

-- Shirewilt Estates likely refers to the Wiltshire storyline from the comics. I'm personally trying to avoid some of those spoilers going forward, so if you want to know more, you might want to Google it.

-- It's a shame Carol didn't get a chance to say goodbye to Tyreese on the radio since they became so, so close at one time.

-- Why didn't Tyreese hallucinate his girlfriend? Here's an interview with the actor that explains it.


The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9pm on AMC.

Why wasn't Noah carrying a weapon? scratch Not at all useful if you can't kill zombies. It seemed like it took a long time for him to find help too. I don't remember Hershel having visions of the dead when he was bitten. Looks like the hard times will continue for the survivors.

Good question. Carl has handled a gun for years and he's younger than Noah. On the Talking Dead Greg Nicotero one of the exec. prods. and the dir. of that ep, said that Scott Gimple the writer, was going for a literary/movie effect of a 'famous', to them, writer who uses that concept. I don't remember his name, might be able to find it if I watch the TD again....

"Them", episode 10 could be said to be more "philosophical" and introspective than usual. The new guy showing up brings new tension.....

'The Walking Dead' spoilers for season 5, episode 11 'The Distance'

February 15, 2015 1:24 PM MST

Norman Reedus discusses Daryl Dixon's potential significant others and how he feels Daryl would behave in a relationship.

Norman Reedus discusses Daryl Dixon's potential significant others and how he feels Daryl would behave in a relationship.

On Feb. 14 Wetpaint Entertainment posted spoilers for "The Distance," which is episode eleven of the fifth season of "The Walking Dead." The episode will mark a major comic book moment that is finally coming to the series after being teased for the past nine episodes. Rick and the rest of the survivors are still dealing with their journey north to Washington D.C. in the hopes of finally finding a safe place. "The Distance" will air on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 9 p.m. on AMC and will introduce the first new characters from the second half of the fifth season.

The synopsis for the episode reveals that episode ten "Them" will feature a major rain storm. The survivors will take cover in a barn that Daryl comes across while hunting. After the storm, the group comes across a friendly stranger, but they are "mistrustful" of him after dealing with The Governor and Terminus. It's likely that this newcomer is Aaron from the comic book series, who is a recruiter for the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Actor Ross Marquand has joined the cast for the remainder of the fifth season, and is likely playing Aaron.

Also joining the cast is "American Horror Story: Murder House" actress Alexandra Breckenridge, who is playing a character called Samantha, although her name has probably been changed in the casting call to avoid spoilers. The entire cast of main characters including Tara Chambler, Father Gabriel Stokes, Sasha, Eugene Porter, Abraham Ford, Rosita, Carol, Maggie, Glenn, Carl, Daryl, Michonne and Rick will also appear in the episode. The episode was directed by Larysa Kondracki and written by Seth Hoffman.

According to Entertainment Weekly on Feb. 12, the second half of the fifth season will be completely different than the first half, and actor Norman Reedus has explained in an interview that fans can expect. There is a major journey ahead for the surviving group as they travel over one hundred miles from Richmond, Va. to Washington D.C. There is much more internal conflict within the group as everyone deals with the sudden losses of Bob Stookey, Beth Greene and Tyreese.

Daryl will have a bit of a breakdown in episode ten "Them," and will slowly slip into a depression over the recent losses. His character will revert back to his season one self, where he puts distance between himself and the others despite being accepted by the group. Reedus explained that despite the change, there "is some humor in Daryl in the back eight" that fans will enjoy. The actor revealed that the series is really good at dangling something good and then ripping it away, which will be explored more i

I guess this isn't supposed to be a literal representation of the real Alexandria which is a suburb of D.C.

It has a Honda engine which would give good performance but riding on those knobby tires on a a wet, paved road wouldn't be fun. They do make it more versatile on varying dirt surfaces though.

My gosh, the season finale already, next week, 1 1/2 hours. On the Talking Dead Chandler Riggs said that Andrew Lincoln always likes to do the fight scenes like with Pete last night. And Rick's stunt double said that it's always nice to get approval from 'his actor' (Rick/Andrew) when a scene looks good as it did when Rick and Pete's doubles crashed through the window.

Next season is almost ready to start filming. They film most of the way through the hot Georgia summers. two thumbs up

Doesn't tell much, of course, but if pushed Rick will shoot first and 'ask questions later'.

A pretty good season finale. Morgan is back (Lennie) a very popular character even though he's only been on a couple of eps , since S1.  Looks like plenty of excitement coming for S6 and Scott Gimple says there will be new non-human threats, but not just Walkers.....hmmm.

News/
The Walking Dead's Incredible Season 5 Finale Nearly Killed Us – Find Out What Went Down!

by Lauren Piester Today 8:20 PM PDT

   
The Walking Dead, S5 Ep16 AMC

That was incredible.

We were on the edge of our seat throughout that entire finale, and for once, we left it almost totally satisfied and not drowning in tears.

Morgan returned, finally, first to show off some insane ninja skills to fend off a new threat – a group of dudes called the Wolves, who are also responsible for all of those walkers with W's on their heads. They've got some sort of walker army, and they're totally evil but Morgan couldn't even leave them to die after knocking them all out with his hiking stick, so he put them in an abandoned car.

Then, it was up to Morgan to save Aaron and Daryl from nearly being killed thanks to a trap set by the Wolves, in which a few hundred walkers were trapped a bunch of trucks.

Meanwhile, most of Alexandria was consumed with a town meeting to discuss Rick and Pete's actions from last week. Carol tried to get Rick to lie, saying that he stole the gun only in order to protect Jessie from Pete, but that wasn't really working.

Deanna was still thrown by Father Gabriel's warning to her that Rick and his group are dangerous, but she probably would have changed her mind about listening to that doofus if she could have seen what he was up to this episode: taking a walk in the woods, whistling an actual death wish to a walker who was just trying to enjoy his lunch, chickening out at the last second, crying on the ground, and then failing to close the town gates when he ran back home like a scared little boy.

READ: The Walking Dead's dirty, sexy secrets revealed by Josh McDermitt

Sasha was handling her depression and survivor's guilt only a little better, if you can call lying down in a grave full of walkers for a while "better." She ended up waiting in the church until Gabriel returned and putting a gun to his head when he told her that yes, she probably should feel like dying. Maggie showed up to stop her just in time, though at this point (and every point) we were rooting for her to pull the trigger.

The guy we were most fearful for, though, was Glenn, who continued his showdown with Nicholas – AKA the guy who got Noah killed two weeks ago. Nicholas tried to leave Glenn to die a couple times, but Glenn is far too awesome to be taken down by a whole crowd of walkers descending upon him, apparently. He could have then killed Nicholas in a fight to rival last week's Rick vs. Pete, but he stopped himself before that happened and they helped each other back to town, even though we would have been OK with Glenn heading back alone.

Finally, it was time for the meeting. Rick was supposed to be there, but he got a little sidetracked by the fact that walkers had gotten in after Gabriel left the gate open. He battled zombies while Maggie, Michonne, Abraham, Jessie and more defended him to the group, saying that "who he is is who you're gonna be, if you're lucky."

MORE: Catch up on what happened in last week's episode
The Walking Dead, S5 Ep16 AMC

Deanna tried to bring up Gabriel's warning, but since Gabriel was busy being threatened by Sasha at the moment, her words didn't really mean much. Luckily, Rick then showed up with a dead walker thrown over his shoulder to prove to them that they're not as safe as they think they are. To emphasize his point, he gives a little speech.

"I was thinking how many of you do I have to kill to save your lives, but I'm not gonna do that," he said, before refusing to apologize for anything he said or did. "You're not ready, but you have to be. Luck runs out."

Right then, Pete – who spent the day receiving both a casserole and death threats from Carol – showed up to yell a lot and wave Michonne's sword around and right through Reg Monroe's throat.

Deanna, who was now losing both her son and her husband, turned to Rick, her mind clearly changed.

"Do it," she said, and he shot Pete in the head, right as Daryl and Aaron showed up with Morgan. The season ended with Michonne almost putting her sword back on the wall before deciding to keep it with her once again.

So, yes, a moment of silence for Reg, who seemed to be a lovely man, but at least his sacrifice wasn't wasted, and now we don't have to deal with Pete anymore.

As for next season, the Wolves seem sort of Lost Boys-ian in the most terrifying of ways, and we're excited and also very scared to see what sort of horrors they bring. If season six is anywhere near as good as season five has been, we're in for quite a ride.




'The Walking Dead' Season 5 Finale Recap: Does Alexandria Need Rick Grimes?
Sunday, March 29, 2015

Alan Danzis
Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

If you came looking for a major death in the season 5 finale of The Walking Dead, you might be unsatisfied with how the 90-minute episode plays out. Sure, there's plenty of blood, guts and death.

But it's also an episode all about forgiveness and redemption. So many people seek suicide, so many people seek murder; and while there's an important murder, there's a sense of hope among the bloodshed. It's a satisfying finale if you like the ones that are less about gut-wrenching cliffhangers and more about wrapping up the theme of the season, while still planting the seeds for the enemies the group will face next season. (The wolves.)

The Walking Dead: Are Rick and Company Still the Good Guys? >>>

Daryl and Aaron Meet Morgan

We've been waiting all season long for Morgan to finally make a huge, important appearance and the season finale wastes no time by showing him off in the first scene. (No blink-and-you-miss end credit sequences for Morgan this time!)

Morgan is held at gunpoint by the first actual living person we've seen with a W on his forehead. The man explains that the W stands for "wolves" and he's just returning to the old ways of the natives. (He also doesn't make a lot of sense.)

The man wants everything Morgan has and wants to kill him. He tells Morgan about how the first tribes used to think men could turn into wolves, but now they're obviously turning into something else entirely.

Another man with a W on his forehead attempts to jump Morgan from behind, but he's able to fight them both off with a big stick. He offers them a chance to leave -- he seems a lot more sane since the last time we saw him -- but they refuse and he knocks them unconscious. A walker comes by and Morgan tries to kill him with one of the men's gun but learns it wasn't loaded the whole time.

After killing the walker with his stick, Morgan loads both men into the back of his car and then bangs on the car horn so walkers will come find them.

Daryl, meanwhile, is still on the road looking for additional survivors to bring back to Alexandria with Aaron. As they're walking through the woods, Aaron tells a story of a different group of survivors who didn't work out with the rest of the community. He says they drove them out and left them with a little bit of food, but took their guns.

"I can't make that kind of mistake again," Aaron tells him.

Aaron and Daryl are on the hunt for more survivors, but they eventually lose track of the ones they're looking for. Aaron suggests they go back since there are some bad people in the area and they desperately need to bring back more food and people.

It's not a total loss as Aaron finds a trailer with an Alaska license plate for his collection. Someone laid a trap, however, as they accidentally open a bunch of trailers all at once, letting out hundreds of walkers -- many of them with W's on their heads. (There's also a ton of walkers hanging on meat hooks inside the trailers without their arms and legs.)

Miraculously, both Aaron and Daryl make it back to their car alive, but there's no way to drive through them all. Aaron discovers a note in the car that warns bad people are coming and they shouldn't stay there.

Later, Aaron tells him how he watched Daryl and the group afar and how when they stuck together during the storm, he knew he had to bring them to Alexandria.

Daryl decides to be the hero and wants one more cigarette smoke before he tries to draw the walkers away so Aaron can get away safely. Aaron, however, wants them to do it together. Just before they're about to make a run for it, Morgan comes out of nowhere and starts killing walkers so they can get away.

Aaron thanks him -- and I suddenly realize that Morgan has no idea who Daryl is.

"Why?" Daryl asks him, wanting to know why Morgan rescued him. "Because all life is precious," he answers.

Aaron offers Morgan a chance to come to their community, but he says he's on his way somewhere else. When he shows him the map, Daryl realizes he has a map from Rick.

Rick Wants to Take Over the Town

Back in Alexandria, Rick starts off the episode in an unknown place. He's on a mattress on a floor. Michonne is sitting in a chair, watching over him. She wants to know why he kept Pete's abuse of his family from her and he tells her she really wanted this place to work.

Glenn and Carol enter with Abraham. Carol also wants to know where Rick got the gun he pulled on everyone. Glenn tells Rick that Deanna is hosting a meeting that night and Carol suggests Rick tell them whatever they want to hear -- namely, that he was trying to protect Jessie and her son from Pete.

Carol suggests that if the townspeople still try to kick Rick out, they should take over the town. Rick suggests which ones they take out and Glenn says it sounds like Terminus all over again. Michonne wants no part of the plan and neither does Glenn. Rick claims he hit his limit, he screwed up and now they're stuck with no other options.

Rick kicks everyone out so he can go back to sleep. Deanna, Reg and Maggie, meanwhile, are meeting across town. Reg says the meeting is just a forum, but Maggie warns Deanna to not just make a decision without considering everything going on in Rick's head.

Maggie then tries to storm off, but Reg catches up with her. He reminds her about how the cavemen evolved and how civilized people are supposed to live together. "That's what I'm going to tell everyone," he says.

Later, Carol goes to see Rick alone. Rick wants to know why Carol didn't tell them about all the guns they have stockpiled. Carol says she's not sure that everyone is with them and reminds Rick that he can't want to take the place and remain a good person at the same time.

When Rick finally leaves the home he woke up in, he gets stares from other people in town, but basically appears to be free enough that he's allowed to walk through the street without an escort. Deanna, however, gives him some serious side eye.

At home, Rick tells Carl he doesn't want him to come to the meeting that night. Carl says the town people need them because they would die without their protection. Rick warns him that he might have to kill one of them.

Later, Rick comes clean to Michonne about how many guns he and Carol have. Michonne tells Rick that they can find a way to make things work in town. And if they don't, "I'm still with you," she tells him.

After Rick leaves his house, he realizes the main gate is open. (What he doesn't know is that it's Gabriel's fault. Earlier in the episode, Gabriel seemed to want to commit "suicide by walker," but wound up killing not one, but two. When he returned to Alexandria, he seemed in shock and left the gate open, kind of on purpose, but also kind of because he seemed like he was in a trance.)

The Walking Dead Recap: Rick Loses Control >>>

Alexandria Needs Rick

That night, everyone is gathered except for Rick and Glenn. Deanna wants to start, however, which seems odd to do since Rick isn't there.

Rick isn't there because he's obviously very, very concerned that there is a walker loose in town. He catches up to it pretty quickly and kills it. There are more, however, and Rick continues killing them while Carol speaks on his behalf at the meeting. As Rick struggles against another one, Abraham speaks on his behalf next at the meeting before Maggie says her peace.

Deanna is up next and shares with the group what Father Gabriel told her about how she shouldn't trust the group. Jessie calls Deanna out for saying something by someone not even at the meeting.

During someone else's speech against Rick, he shows up and throws a dead walker on the ground in front of everyone, telling them the gate was open and no guard was posted. Rick gives a great speech about how the living and the dead will always try to come and take this place.

"You're going to change," he says. "You're not ready, but you have to be." He no longer wants to take over the town because the people are weak -- he wants to make them strong for whatever will come next.

And then Pete comes in with Michonne's katana and slices Reg's neck open. Like, out of nowhere. It's shocking, but kind of odd.

Deanna looks up to Rick and tells him to do it -- kill her husband before he turns. Without even blinking, he shoots Reg in the head and then looks up and sees Daryl, Morgan and Aaron watching everything as the season finale comes to a close.

Forgiveness

The other two big moments of the episode are ones about forgiveness (and perhaps teasing the episode into thinking a big character is going to die).

First up: Glenn. While out in the woods, Glenn gets shot by Nicholas and tumbles down a nearby hill. Glenn disappears for a while, but eventually catches up to Nicholas and they get into a serious, knock-down fight in the woods.

Nicholas digs into Glenn's bullet wound and a walker starts to approach. You think it's going to get Nicholas, but instead it heads for Glenn who soon has quite a few walkers to deal with. Somehow, miraculously, Glenn survives and eventually catches up to Nicholas. Glenn fights him and eventually gets him on the ground where he can put a gun to his head.

Nicholas practically begs for his life and Glenn can't pull the trigger. He even helps Nicholas make it back to town.

Back in town, the other character who seems destined for death but is really seeking redemption, is Gabriel. After failing to lock up the gate, he gets into a fist fight with Sasha, who pulls a gun on him. Maggie is able to talk her out of pulling the trigger, however. Gabriel wanted to die because he felt guilty about what he did to all those who sought refuge in his church. But he eventually prays with Maggie and Sasha for forgiveness.

Wolves Not Far

While Morgan is a huge part of the episode, we still have an after credits sequence. It starts with Michonne deciding not to put her katana back up on the wall in her home and instead putting it back over her shoulder, where it belongs.

The show then cuts back to the warehouse with the trailers full of walkers. Written on one of the vans nearby is the phrase "Wolves not far."

That's right -- these wolves, led by Joe, the man Daryl hung out with for a bit in season 4, are heading for Alexandria next season. And it's going to be up to Rick to get the town ready.

Other Odds and Ends

-- I love the scene where Carol goes to visit Pete so she can check on Tara. He tells her to get out, but she threatens him with a knife, saying no one will doubt her story that he tried to hurt her. "You're a small, weak nothing," she tells him. It's so great she finally gets to face off against an abuser.

-- I do not love the scene between Rick and Jessie, however, where Pete watches ominously. It feels a little too much like a Lifetime movie for me.

-- Did this episode really need to be 90 minutes? I'm not sure I need that scene between Abraham and Eugene, watching over an unconscious Tara. Okay, it's nice to finally hear Eugene and Abraham apologize to each other, but I feel like that ground had been covered.



Meanwhile I think we can get through the summer okay with the "Fear The Walking Dead" starting, the trailer looks like it starts right at the first signs of the virus.  Also the new Terminator movie, the Badlands series, and some other new things. two thumbs up
