TV Episode Recap/Review – The Walking Dead “Vatos”

by on Nov.21, 2010, under Drama, Horror

The Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 4 – Well, if you were wanting a bit more action on this show, I’m thinking that the last five minutes of this episode should do you for a good, long while. My heart is still pounding like crazy after watching the peaceful idyllic camp turn into a freaking zombie shooting match.

I’m beginning to see that nothing is ever going to go right for Rick and the last bit of this episode just proves that. The poor guy keeps jumping out of the frying pan into nothing but more frying pans. I suppose going back for Dixon was never going to be a simple mission, but Glenn getting kidnapped by a gang wasn’t in the cards, nor was getting their van stolen by Merle (if that is indeed who took it) and then having to hoof it back to camp in time to stop a bunch of walkers from massacring everyone in it.

One of the things I liked was how appearances were very deceptive in this episode. Rick and his group run into what appears to be a vicious gang, but it turns out to be just another group of people trying to survive and taking care of others while they do it. Then there’s Jim, who seems to be having some sort of breakdown and may possibly be a danger to himself and everyone else. But he’s just a guy who apparently had a premonition about the horrors none of them knew were coming.

Overall I’m still in love with this show and wait anxiously for it to come on each Sunday. I’m so sad to learn there are only two more episodes left in this much too short first season though hearing that it’s already been renewed (this time for 13 episodes, woot!), makes me feel a bit better.

My favorite bits….

The sisters talking about their father and why he taught each of them how to fish differently.

Rick holding that absolutely massive gun of his to Daryl’s head.

Wondering why Daryl was keeping the hand. What, was he thinking they would be able to re-attach it?

Recognizing the signs that Merle had cauterized his stump before Rick even said it.

Jim losing it up on the hill and digging all those graves. At first I figured he might be doing it for the family he’d been unable to save.

Daryl asking Glenn what he did before, and finding out he was just a pizza delivery guy.

Glenn going back for Rick’s hat.

Rick going back for his hat.

Jim telling Carl that his dad was probably delayed because he found some people who needed help. That was awfully sweet.

The way Rick said “Let’s go see Guillermo”

Rick saying he wasn’t going to leave Glenn because he could have left him to die in the tank but he didn’t. So awesome.

Cracking up when the grandma came out and broke up the fight, thinking Rick was there to arrest one of her boys.

Seeing that the gang was apparently running a hospital after the rest of the staff left. Wow, talk about getting the wrong impression about those guys.

Cracking up at the “dogs” that were supposed to have been eating Glenn.

Rick handing over some their guns to the other group, to help them survive too.

Dale saying if he’d known of the coming apocalypse, he would’ve stocked up on wrapping paper. Dang, that reminds me, I should probably add some to my own zombie survival kit.

Holy cow! Rick and his group RUNNING back to camp?? They didn’t just hotwire another car?

Completely freaking out when the group of walkers hit the camp and echoing Rick’s “Oh my god” when they started eating practically everyone in sight.

Thinking how awful it was that Amy never got to open her present.

Jim remembering his dream and why he dug the holes. Oh god….. *shivers*

So what did you think of this episode? Do you think Merle took the truck and if so, where did he go? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
