HYPE AS FUCK
Fear the walking dead was kinda ass even when i tried to use rational thinking to explain some of the things that happened.
Hope this season of TWD is good to make up for the past 7 weeks
I didn't watch it and don't plan to. Mind giving me a summation of it?
So basically the only good character in the show, who is a drug addict, wakes up in an abandoned church. He goes down stairs and finds one of his druggie friends, who obviously OD'd the previous night eating the rest of his druggie friends, He runs outside and gets hit by a car. Scene shifts to his family, his mother is a guidance counselor at a high school and his sister is the stereotypical good child w/ the good grades but she hates being around the rest of her family. The only important part of the first episode involves a fat kid named tobias who brings a knife to school. The mother assumes he's being bullied and that he's bringing the knife to stab some bullies. In reality he brought it to school because he's been reading up on strange occurrences on the internet about a sickness causing people to attack other people for no apparent reason and the government doesn't know if it's a virus, microbe, etc.
So now the drug addict is in the hospital, restrained to the bed obviously not paying attention to anything any of his family members are saying and his moms boyfriend, who is also a history teacher at the college, and a very good looking british indian man irl might i add, gets himself super involved in everything. So Nick, the drug addict, explains to his moms boyfriend, after she left the hospital, the incident that happened in the church so he decides to investigate. He finds blood and entrails...... but no zombies. So the following day he's explaining to the mother what happened some other Shit happens. One of the hospital nurses unties one of nicks hands so he can use the urinal by himself (This is a lie) and then suddenly an old man, who is also in the room, starts dying and all the nurses focus their attention on him. When they remove the old man from the room nick releases himself, takes the old man clothes (Which he then wears for the entirety of the series) and escapes the hospital. His Mom and her boyfriend shows up to the hospital, Nick is gone, she gets mad and then they both go to the church to see what happened. She finds a book and a needle and begins crying. Nick buys a trackphone from a store and calls up his dealer, he can't get in contact and then falls asleep under a bridge.
I forget the order in which things happen next but basically his mom and her boyfriend goes to Nicks Drug dealer (Who they only assume is a child hood friend) and ask him if they have seen nick, he says no. It's night time and they drive home and suddenly get stuck in traffic, a guy dies in an ambulance and turns and police take him down (You don't see what happens until later because it has then become a viral video. During the daytime Nick finally meets up w/ calvin and question the drugs he gave him, Calvin says nothing is wrong and then he assumes Nick has ratted him out. He then drives nick to an area surrounded by water and plots to kill Nick. Nick gets the upper hand and accidently kills Calvin w/ his own gun. He leaves the area and runs into his mom and her boyfriend. He tells them what he just did and they go back. They find calvin's car but calvin is no where to be seen (One of many elements of bad writing in this series). As they drive back to the tunnel, Calvin's Zombie approaches the truck that they're in. Nicks mom and her boyfriend get out of the car trying to speak with calvin. Nick, knowing full well what Calvin is now pleads with them not to do it. Calvin Almost bites the moms arm but her boyfriend pulls her out of the way and Nick runs him over with the car. Calvin is still alive -> Nick Throws Car in reverse -> Runs Calvin AAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL the way back through the tunnel and all the way over to his car, Calvin is still moving Episode ends
Also a funny but not really funny thing because of the next episode in this episode, mainly about the daughter is that she has a boyfriend who she escapes her problems with. They plan to meet up at a beach towards the end of the episode but when she gets there he never shows up and she threatens him in text messages
This episode is mainly centered around the Mom's Boyfriend so I'll use his actual name for this which is Patrick.
So things basically start getting crazy in this episode, mind you there hasn't been any news about what's going on and for some reason only Tobias uses the internet so he's the only person in the state of California that's aware of what's about to happen.
So the daughter, whose name is Alicia is mad as fuq and heads to her boyfriends house. She finds that door is unlocked and the place is in shambles, scene switches to the Mom, Boyfriend (I mean patrick) and Nick trying to figure out what they should do. They plot to go to the desert (for whatever reason). Suddenly Alicia calls them and telling them that Matt, her boyfriend, is super sick and they rush over to his house because they're scared as Shit after their encounter with calvin. They enter the house and discover that Matt is bitten (His parents are off on vacation in Vegas. He doesn't explain how he got bit. The Mother and Nick try to convince Alicia to leave, she tries to stay so her boyfriend convinces her to leave. Back at their house Nick is starting to have withdrawals. The Mother has an idea to get Drugs from the High School. Children are still in school so Patrick calls up his Ex Wife who is named Liza and tries to figure out where his annoying teenage son Christopher is so they can all go to the desert together. So they split
The mom gets to the high school and finds it empty, she breaks into the medicine locker in the nurses office and STOCKS UP ON DEM SYRIENGES AND WHATEVER ELSE WAS IN THERE
As she's searching around she runs into Tobias who is planning to raid the cafeteria of food. She helps him and they load up a cart of canned goods. On the way out The mother(Madison) notices the school principal limping around with blood on his back. She calls out to him but tobias urges her to stop and for them to leave. The principal is now a walker and begins to attack. She's struggling to fend him off and then tobias stabs him with his knife. The knife does nothing and the principal shifts his attention to Tobias and they go tumbling down the staircase to the front exit. Before the Principal is able to kill tobias Madison beats him across the head with a Fire extinguisher and they leave
Alicia tries to go back to her boyfriends house and Nick fakes like he has a seizure so she doesn't leave.
So Patrick is on the phone with Liza doesn't feel like talking to him because they already agreed that Christopher was staying with her for the weekend but Patrick tries to explain what is going on and asks where Chris is, She hangs up the phone. He drops Nick and the Mom off and heads to Liza's house. The Son, Christopher is then seen on a bus heading home from school mad at everything like a typical teenager. Suddenly the bus stops, and a mob is seen beginning to start a riot because police are shooting undead homeless people. Patrick finally meets up w/ Liza and explains that things are going to Shit and to stop arguing and finally gets in contact w/ his son. His son is chanting w/ the riot and recording what's going on and his dad asks him where he is, he tells him he's apart of the "Movement" and hangs up. The riot is on the news and Liza pieces together where he is and they go get him. When they get there riot squads have began to mobilize and people have begun to act wild, they begin to run looking for a place to hide. They end up in the barbershop of an elderly hispanic couple and their daughter and decide to wait it out till the riots ended
This episode was really uneventful. Basically the riots got worse and they began setting peoples establishments on fire, causing Patrick, Liza, Christopher, and the Salazar's (The barbershop family trio) to flee and try to escape the chaos. The riot squads have now brought out water cannons and are firing it on the mob. As the group is fleeing through one of those construction set ups or w/e one of the water cannons knocks the structure over and it lands on the Mother (Griselda Salazar's) Foot Crushing it. They dig her out and continue running and oddly enough Patricks truck is the only thing the rioters haven't destroyed, so they escape and head back to Patrick and Madison's House. On their way there they drive pass a hospital and see police firing on walkers who are exiting the hospital, questioning what is going on.
At the house everyone regroups and suddenly a dog begins barking and hitting at the door, Madison opens it up and lets the dog in. The dog detects a walker, which turns out to be one of their neighbors (I believe he appeared in the previous episode as a walker who attacked one of the neighbors during their kids birthday party and madison closes the blinds so alicia can't see what's happening). Nick remembers that one of their neighbors who used to be both his and alicia's baby sitter has a shot gun. Alicia goes to their house to retrieve it. Upon getting there she finds no one is home and gathers what she needs, on her way out she sees a pair of feet behind a door and begins to run out the house (Smart for the current situation but not really human thinking) She runs through the garden maze of her baby sitters house back to hers and once she climbs back over the fence undead zombie of her baby sitter grabs her leg. Christopher Saves her and she hits him in the nose for w/e reason. so Patrick is trying to calm the walker in the house down, and it attacks him. BS ensues and Daniel Salazar (The father) uses the shotgun and blows the walkers head off. Oh btw the walker ate the dog prior
The next day everyone prepares to leave, Daniel sets up an agreement that they would drop him and his family off somewhere so they can regroup with his cousin to do w/e.
As they leave the husband of the baby sitter comes back home and the Baby Sitter walker closes in on him, he's unaware of what's going on. Before the walker can bite him however, HERE COMES THE US MILITARY and blows the baby sitters brains out. They then prevent them from leaving the town, ask a few questions and everyone thinks everything is going to be Ok.
Also pretty uneventful
So it has been several weeks and the US military set up a camp around the neighborhood, Gating everyone in and appoints Patrick as the "Mayor" to try to keep everyone in order. What the writers left us to discover for ourselves is that the soldiers have no contact with their superiors and have basically gone rogue so they're waiting things out until they have gotten orders. There is no power in the neighborhood, no meds, etc. and several families are in quarantine for w/e reason
At the start of the episode Chris is on the roof doing a teenage monologue and as he's recording he notices someone creating a glare from a building in the distance. Everyone in the neighborhood is lead to believe that LA is now empty and everyone who is fine have been moved to camps and basically no living is outside of these camps. Patrick comes to get Chris down from the roof and he tries to show patrick the glare, patrick doesn't listen to him. He then eventually shows madison the glare and Madison has a talk w/ patrick explaining to him that he needed to listen to his son.
The salazar daughter, Ofelia, is having sex w/ one of the Military men, trying to use him to get meds for her mother. He explains to her that he can't and she gets mad and denies him ass. Liza, is going around the town helping the sick and eldery because apparently she knows a lot about medicine and nursing despite not being a nurse or working in the medical field
This episode is pretty uneventful as well, notable things that happened was Nick sneaking into one of Liza's patient houses and sticking his IV drip into his foot.
Soldiers eventually begin ticking people in the neighborhood off because they've gone rogue and are using force to keep people in line, One of the neighborhood residents is on edge and eventually tries to escape the community but is captured. Some plot shit happens and eventually Madison manages to sneak her way out into the city to see what's going on. What she finds is that there are dead bodies all over the city of LA, some of them are from people who had never even turned but they all have bullet holes in their heads (Meaning the Military knows how to handle the threat so how does everything go crazy again? ) she then heads back to the community. Then some Doctor bitch shows up and she apparently knows what Liza has been doing and recruits her into helping out sick people at a camp the military has set up at the hospital. She then basically snitches on all the sick and then the episode ends with the Military scooping up said people, among them Nick and Griselda
I didn't watch episode 5, so here it is
So w/e happened in Episode 5 basically ended w/ the Military Guy Ofelia was Fucking being tortured by her father, and Griselda dead (Septic shock after having foot amputated). The military guy spills all of the information he has and the group plots to get Nick, Griselda, and Ofelia back.
Patrick, being the morally correct person that he is and that i failed to really give you information on because you as a viewer of the TWD would absolutely hate this guy, strikes a deal with the military man, letting go free and getting information about where to go in the Military camp at the hospital. They also gathered information about where the military locked up a bunch of walkers ( even though there's actual scenes of tons of dead bodies in LA and military actively walking around hunting them down so there should be no reason why there's an army of walkers locked up). Daniel Salazar then frees all of these walkers and leads them to the front gate of the hospital camp, the soldiers on watch begin opening fire on them. The walkers are too great and they begin overwhelming the camp.
I forget the order of events in which they happen from this point on.
Inside of a cage in the basement of the hospital is Nick and some guy he met last episode named Strand, strand somehow picked a Key to the gate off of one of the soldiers and was waiting for the perfect opportunity to break out. When the walkers begin flooding in the Military then shifts all their focus into evacuating, leaving Nick, Strand, and hundreds of other people still locked in cages in the basement. Nick and Strand break out and proceed to leave, ignoring the other people.
The group makes it into the Garage and decide to have Christopher and Alicia stay in one of the trucks. They make their way in through the back and come across the people locked in the basement after Nick and Strand already left and begin looking for them and Liza. Evacuation doesn't come for the people in the camp because the Military sees that the camp is compromised and the Doctor that recruited Liza, urges her to leave. Liza tries to convince her to come but she stays. Strand and Nick then get themselves in a situation where they enter a door that can only be unlocked by a keycard and closes it behind them. They come across one dead soldier and one being eaten alive, and then suddenly, after Strand pockets some rings and a gun from the soldier being eaten a live, walkers flood in and they try to exit from the way they came in. they can't exit through the door because the door is locked and the walkers close in on them. The Group then finds them and begin to watch as the walkers close in. Suddenly Lisa shows up and unlocks the door. They make their way through the Hospital kitchen to find an alternate way to the Garage and several walkers attack them. They kill them but Liza gets bitten and doesn't tell anyone. They make it out in the open and see a mountain of Ash and bodies that have obviously been set ablaze and the salazars see what is Griselda's remains in them. They make it back to the garage and notice that the truck they told Alicia and Christopher to stay in is gone and they assumed the worse, but Alicia and chris come out from a door leading to a flight of stairs and tells them about the group of soldiers that stole their truck. As they prepare to leave the Military guy who Patrick set free pulls a gun out on Daniel. Ofelia tries to convince him to put the gun down, he turns and shoots her for w/e reason (Mad cause she said he couldn't have no more pussy ) in the shoulder. Patrick beats the shit out of him.
Strand then convinces them to go to his place. (Which is nice as fuq and is along the water) He then reveals to Nick his plans to ride out the impending chaos on a rather large Yacht in the sea and show Nick the Yacht. Liza finishes patching up Ofelia's gun wound and talks with Christopher, telling him he loved her and then heads down to the beach. Madison senses something is wrong and follows her. Patrick see's then follows. At the beach Liza reveals to Madison her bite mark and tells Madison to kill her. As she's handing the gun to Madison Patrick arrives and asks what is going on. Madison explains the situation and Patrick tries to convince her to not go through with it and that she overcome it. She explains to the dumb ass that there is no coming back and that when you get bit you're donezo and then for the first time in the entire series he isn't the most annoying character and shoots her in the head and the most Emotion-ResidentSleeper...........
