Escape the Dead: Craig Mabbitt’s ‘Walking Dead’ Recap – Season 4, Episode 3
In addition to being Escape the Fate‘s lead singer, Craig Mabbitt is a diehard viewer of ‘The Walking Dead.’ For Season 4 of the hit AMC show, Mabbitt has signed on to write an exclusive recap of each episode for Loudwire. Check out his rundown of Episode 3 below:
Well things definitely took a turn for the worse this week in every aspect possible: Glenn is sick, Herschel is probably gonna get sick, as well; Tyreese lost his cool for the first time and put my boy Darryl up against the wall (thanks for beating his ass, Rick), and I’m sure his sister getting sick is not gonna help at all either. Daryl’s group is now stranded trying to get 50 miles away for some medicine, and Carol wasted a lot of water. (I think she’s lying about killing those peeps, seems as if she’s covering it up for someone.)
I, for one, was a big fan of the zombies in this episode: the one who had plants growing out of his body, the chick with the trap on her leg and the pile that got ran over by Daryl! — pretty f—in’ awesome! Anyway, after Tyreese freaks out and gets his face beat in by Rick, everyone who is sick is sent to isolation. (BTW, I’d really like to see a season all about that year they lived through the winter in the “Ricktatorship” cause this counsel can’t seem to keep shit together.) Among the sick is Glenn, which I’m pretty upset about considering the dude has done countless amounts of grunt work for the group only to die (hopefully not) from getting sick.
Herschel mentions a place where they can get vet medicine that will work just as good for the humans, so Daryl wastes no time in gearing up to help the group. Rick investigates the “crime scene” and figures out that it might be Carol who is at fault for the burning of the bodies, which in my honest opinion is not very Carol like. Meanwhile, Daryl and his badass group run into a MASSIVE group of walkers. Now, I don’t know why they stopped the car for more than two seconds in the first place, but c’mon guys — flip a b-tch, go back to the prison and cover yourselves in zombie goo like the first season, right!? Anyway he backs up and gets stuck on a huge heap of zombies and they make a run for it. Daryl and Michonne are whoopin’ ass as usual and Tyreese stands there, and for some reason didn’t get bit by the huge group of walkers standing right behind him…….yea, ok. He somehow manages to get through and meet back up with Daryl and the gang and they run off into the woods.
So, for the most part, we watched the group get split up, Glenn go into isolation and Herschel willingly going in, as well, to help them with his wife’s tea remedy. And carol has a secret she needs to come clean about. Next episode is gonna be gnarly, I’d say. Who do you think could have burned the bodies? Is carol telling the truth or sticking up for someone? I guess we will find out soon. Until then keep daryl in your prayers, I’m sure he will ‘Boondock Saints’ his way to the medicine and back. Till next week!
