I knew we’d be talking about something after last night’s Walking Dead finale, but I didn’t think it would be…this. There was a ton of action, as the episode was more or less nonstop slaughter (did anyone EVER miss a headshot the entire time?), but that wasn’t what people will be discussing today.
Rather, that would be the appearance of…whatever this is, which appeared in the woods to save Andrea. It’s a moment that reminded me that yes, this is in fact based off a comic book, as a katana wielding ninja with armless zombies chained to them steps outside the bounds of plausibility just a little bit for me.
People who have read the comics, shut the f*** up right now. I don’t want to know who this actually is, and will be content to speculate. I’m a little unclear as to why the zombies having no arms matters, as if they still have mouths, that’s a problem. Also, the fact that both are black implies that someone from the deep south might be living out their long festering fantasy about bringing slavery back. And those pants are pretty tight to be a dude.
Anyway, I don’t think I’ve ever been caught this off guard in the show before. Character deaths can be a surprise, yes, but this? It’s something else entirely. And we’ll have to wait until the fall to find out exactly what the hell is going on here.
