WALKING DEAD DIARIES: EPISODE TRY

TRY Grade: B–
The perfect woman’s husband Pete is a lot like Mr. Delbert Grady from THE SHINING. An extremely typical, oafish fellow until he showed his true self through piercing eyes and a demonic countenance, and he sure gave Rick one helluva fight. "I bet you thought it was gonna be easy?" 

Dull to Deadly
Kind of a disappointment, actually, this wife and child abuse storyline, taking away Rick’s moral ambiguity. Having a legit reason to kill Pete blunted a cool sinister edge Rick had going there. It was a good fight though, seemed real and intense, surpassing the mega zombie slaughter Michonne and Sasha (and the other woman who means nothing), playing out like a video game. But if TRY belonged to any one character in particular it’s Carl with his new gal. Two little love birds sitting… or rather, standing in a tree. Z-O-M-B-I-E… (This deliberately bad joke's premise was written before the TALKING DEAD host quipped it to Chandler Riggs). It’s nice the kid can finally grow up in a somewhat normal fashion with a "crush" that doesn't involve a squishy skull, and his acting has improved since the awkward stage, when he morphed from a spooked little tyke into a young Clint Eastwood; sorry but the badass dialogue just didn’t wash during that transition.

The entire episode was decent, merely existing to bridge the season finale next week where Rick, of all people, may be banished from the town of Alexandria. Well in history, they fired Winston Churchill after the immanent threat was gone... And previously on this show, Carol survived her own time-out... So, we'll see...
