Even though it feels like it just started, season 5 of The Walking Dead is on the verge of wrapping up for the year and going on its annual mid-season hiatus. As usual, AMC’s hit zombie drama likes to leave an impression when going on a break, and if you’ve been watching, you know that a clash of epic proportions, another one, is on the horizon. While that’s to be expected, there may be some surprises in store.

Stop reading now if you’re not caught up on The Walking Dead or if you don’t want to know anything about the upcoming episodes. SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.

This Is Why The Walking Dead Returned To The Past

Spoilers for The Walking Dead episode “Consumed” and others below. You have been warned.

the walking deadFrom a structure standpoint, last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was possibly the best in the series. With nearly all of its runtime devoted to Carol, the narrative skips back and forth across her timeline and through several of the show’s more iconic locations. We get a sense of what Carol’s life was like before the zombies hit, as well as a sense of what Atlanta is like now. (It isn’t good.) And it turns out all of these callbacks aren’t just one-offs, but they’re actually a sign of…something…to come.

With only two more episodes left in 2014, AMC’s The Walking Dead is building towards something big. This became readily apparent at the end of last night’s episode, “Consumed.” (You can read our thoughts on maybe the best episode of the season HERE for more depth on that matter.) With the annual mid-season hiatus looming, the massively popular zombie series never likes to leave you with warm, cuddly feelings. And if you needed to be reminded of this fact, watching this new clip for next week’s installment, “Crossed,” gives you the definite impression that things are going to get grim.

We’re going to stray into SPOILER country for a while here, so you my want to sit this one out if you’re not caught up on The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Consumed Needs To Talk About Carol

fb share tweet share

During the last half of season 4, AMC’s The Walking Dead took a different approach to telling the zombie story, breaking the core group up into smaller factions and following each one for an episode, or at least most of them. Season 5 has taken that strategy and added even more narrative tweaks and gymnastics. They’ve staggered the timeline, so not only do events in different places play out simultaneously, each chapter adds to your overall knowledge, filling in blank spots and answering questions posed earlier. Thus far, it’s been an inventive tactic, creating a tension that carries week to week, and builds the arc of the season in a different and unusually satisfying way. (It’s weirdly like watching Arrested Development, letting stories unfold over multiple episodes, in multiple timeframes.) This week’s episode, “Consumed,” follows this path and delivers one of the best installments of the season.

There are SPOILERS beyond this point. If you haven’t watched “Consumed” yet and have any interest in doing so, stop reading now or what follows falls on you.

This Week’s Walking Dead Was Almost Censored, We Try To Figure Out Why

fb share tweet share

AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead is known for being brutal and violent and, especially for a show on basic cable, startlingly gory at times. Still, as vicious as the show can be, and as it continues to push boundaries, that doesn’t mean it can get away with anything, and the most recent episode of season 5, “Self Help,” or at least part of it, was almost censored.

Just a heads up, if you haven’t watched “Self Help” yet, we’re going to get into some major SPOILERS. So if you haven’t watched, and you actually care, stop reading, because if you complain about it later we’re just going to smack our heads into the wall.

The Walking Dead: Watch Carol Get Grim In This Clip For Next Week’s Episode

fb share tweet share

After the biggest stumble they’ve had in some time with “Slabtown,” The Walking Dead righted the ship with last night’s “Self Help,” which showcases some characters that have been woefully underutilized until now—Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita (Christian Serratos), and Eugene (Josh McDermitt). Now we’ve got our first look at the next installment, “Consumed,” as well as some behind the scenes looks at “Self Help.”

“Slabtown” caught us up with Beth (Emily Kinney), who had been missing in action since season 4, and it looks like “Consumed” is going to show Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) and their efforts to track her down. Out for an evening stroll a couple episodes back, they saw a car with a white cross painted in the window, like the one that took Beth, and gave chase.
