Talking Through New Best Friends

New Best Friends are what Rick and the gang found in this episode, as well as a porcupine walker and a wire cat statue. While Winslow didn’t survive the encounter, hopefully the cat found a new home with Michonne. Also hopefully, our gang can find the guns required to keep their new best friends. Will Tara have to reveal what she knows about Oceanside? Or will they find another cache of guns? Either way, the clock is ticking and the pressure is mounting.

Generally speaking, both of us liked this episode, although we did find a few flaws. Creating a new way of speaking in 633 days seems a little bit of a stretch, amongst other stretches. Who looks at a landfill and thinks, this would be a great place to live? Maybe, as one of my friends said, Jadis was a crazy new wave artist who managed to convince people to follow her there to set up shop when the crap hit the ceiling. Aside from the sauce of the weak variety, there were lots of awesome things, too. The music playing while our gang met the landfillers was pretty cool. Brian liked the fight with Winslow, and we both surprised ourselves by still rooting for Father Gabriel.

We were also left wondering a few things by the end of the episode, like what will happen when Carol finds out the truth that Daryl lied about? Will she be angry that he lied? Or will she understand that he did it to protect her? Will she be broken after that? Also, why didn’t we see Daryl tell anyone about Richard’s plan? Did he just do it off screen? Will Richard try to get someone else to enact his plan with him? Will he try to sacrifice someone else instead of Carol? If Richard is so willing to sacrifice and die for the Kingdom, then as Daryl says, why doesn’t he?

Speaking of Daryl, it was so nice to see him with his crossbow back! Now all he needs is his vest and he will be a whole Daryl again. We can’t wait for that to happen!

If you have the answers to any of these burning questions, then please leave us feedback and tell us! We are dying to know the answers!
