THE WALKING DEAD -- SEASON 4, EPISODE 16 REVIEWMonday, March 31, 2014Zena Horror
I always keep a notebook nearby whenever I watch a show, in case I want to review it. However, last night, I barely wrote anything, mesmerized as I watched The Walking Dead season 4 finale entitled “A”. Terminus was supposed to be a “sanctuary” for all. Even I had packed a couple of Capri Sun’s and Salt and Vinegar chips, set to leave my home for Terminus if my wife continued to eat our entire supply of Coco Puffs. But after seeing Rick, Carl, Daryl and Michonne combatting the occupants of Terminus, I chose to endure my wife’s crunches and the precious 2% milk dripping from her lip to our carpet.
Before jumping into the Terminus fight, let me back track to Rick biting a chunk out of Joe’s neck. Yes, I know you saw it, too. Every time I see someone bite someone else, I call the biter a Wachootoo. So upon seeing Rick bite Joe to save his son, Carl, I said to my wife, “I didn’t know Rick was a Wachootoo.” You, as Jim Carrey discovered in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, will come to find that “The Wachootoo’s were biters.” Ace Ventura proclaimed this during a hilarious fight with a Wachootoo. I was a wee little boy when I saw this, but it stuck with me ever since. Therefore, Rick is a Wachootoo. Watch Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls if you don’t believe me.
While you watch it, keep all the “bitees” in your prayers. No one deserves to be bitten. Personally, I liked “bitee” Joe. I know he was a slightly carefree leader in The Walking Dead universe, and his system didn’t always make since; but at least he had a system. On top of that, he was a great tracker. I didn’t even know he was tracking Rick. He held casual conversations and laughed with people, all while tracking the person who killed his crew member. If I had that skill, I’d stalk random people to grocery stores and bring them one thing on their shopping list like I’m the omniscient God. Wouldn’t that be freaky? Some stranger brings you Smucker’s Natural Chunky peanut butter then disappears. You’d tremble as you scratch the third thing off your list.
Rick and the others fired back as they raced for a place to retreat. Everyone was on edge, even me as I watched my wife pour the last bit of Coco Puffs into her bowl, refusing to just drink the leftover milk and leave the Coco Puffs for someone more deserving—someone like me. Anyway, the attackers surround Rick and the others and order them into a train car, where Rick meets a “poncholess” Maggie and the rest of the crew. Rick reassures everyone that the people of Terminus “don’t know who they are messing with.”
What did you guys think about the season finale of The Walking Dead?
