Morgan Returns, Michonne Speaks Up: The Walking Dead Episode 312 Review
From what I was told, from what I read, and from what I gathered from last week’s episode, Sunday’s “Clear” was supposed to be epic. The Walking Dead is entering the final four of season three, and finally- finally- Michonne opens her mouth.
In all honesty, the episode was less than epic. I get that Morgan was an integral role in the survival of Rick way back when, but he has been gone for quite some time now. I forgot what it was like to…. like… him. However, it was heartbreaking to know that little Duana didn’t make it, and even worse to know that it was his zombie mother who had killed him (and all because Morgan couldn’t shoot her when he had the chance in season one). In the comic, we got to see a walker Duane. I suppose production thought it might be too much too quickly to re-introduce a character and then shove his dead son down our throats.
I found it completely endearing that Michonne and Carl bonded last night. She was kind, charming and witty. She gave Carl his space but pulled him in all at the same time. If she wanted to seal her spot in the Grimes’ crew for good, she was smart enough to go through Carl, first. Besides, Carl did tell his pops that she was A-OK in his book.
Morgan had the guns Rick’s former police station was lacking. I going to guess that when Rick and Morgan separated in episode one, Morgan turned right around and got what he needed- which was everything the station had! Overall, Morgan’s booby-trapped “home” was a jackpot for the threesome and if a box full of baretta’s don’t do the trick when the Governor comes for war, I’m going to assume that the vast array of assault rifles will do the trick.
That’s all for today’s review, folks. I have been stressing overtime about my place in the Walking Dead’s Biggest Fan contest. Only nine more days left and I am struggling to maintain my spot in the top ten. Please, if you are on a computer and have 30 seconds, click the link below and vote for me.
