Following the return of The Walking Dead and three brilliant character development episodes, the internet and forums are filled with comments about the lack of zombie centric action and how the series has now all of a sudden become boring without it. What makes this show so great is the story and character development. You can’t have a zombie centric story without character development. If all the show was, were people making their way from one place to another killing zombies it would have gotten really old really fast.
[Spoiler Warning] Just finished Season 2 episode 2 of The Walking Dead game, and man…Telltale really knows how to toy with you emotionally. What a great episode. A little too short in my humble opinion, but what little there is sure packs a massive punch and easily one of my favourite episodes in the series so far. Low on action but high on story and narrative, not to mention superb storytelling with a few nasty and not so nasty surprises around every corner. The way Telltale is handling the character development of Clementine during the course of season 2 is spot on. I love how the story and the events around her is turning her into a whole different more grown-up person, not to mention she has become pretty bad ass.
“Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (guest star Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade’s growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski .”
Why must I wait two weeks for more of this amazing show? The trailer for the next episode freaking awesome! Seriously, some great action sequences and awesome villains. Cannot wait for the next episode!
“I heard him heading to the bedroom where I was, so I jumped in the closet and I grabbed one of my replica swords, and I pulled it out and stood at the doorway, and he was coming down the hallway at me while I was yelling, ‘Go away, you don’t live here’ and he just walked right into the point of the sword, I don’t know if he thought it was a toy,” said Thompson. Thompson told Local 2 he managed to get the man out of the house and locked the door.
But he said the man wouldn’t give up and broke through the front door and ran back into the house. Deputies said the two men fought over the sword and in the scuffle, the estranged husband was stabbed — once in the chest and once in the leg. Thompson said the man grabbed a flower pot from outside and smashed it over his head. It dinged me on the head and all of a sudden I had blood pouring down my face, said Thompson.”
So I have a few burning issues that needs to answered here:
- This guy has a girlfriend?
- Why didn’t he use Nayru’s love to just protect himself?
- Was the man assaulting her named Gannon?
- When he smashed the flower pot did a rupee, heart, or bee appear?
- Did they give him Red potion in the hospital?
The news anchors completely didn’t give the Master Sword angle respect it deserves. Any man with the pure heart and power needed to yield the Master Sword is completely infallible. The ex-husband clearly is taking orders from Lord Gannon. So I’m picturing him holding the flower pot directly over his head with both arms, then throwing it in a perfect arc to on-top of the other guys head. lol!
