This week’s installment, “Made to Suffer,” is the last episode before the midseason break – new episodes don’t start up again until February — so are we made to care that we have such a long wait once this episode ends? Kinda. While this is a better episode than most of this season’s, it doesn’t quite measure up to the standards of past pre-break attempts. With a few exceptions, nothing overly exciting happens here, and the “cliffhanger” ending is hardly a cliffhanger at all. While the brotherly reconnection of Daryl and Merle is strongly encouraged, they were destined to cross paths all season. Yes, it’s a cool scene, and both Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus do an excellent job at emoting, but the scene does not come as a surprise and doesn’t create suspense. Plus, new characters from the comic were introduced – namely Tyreese – but it’s hazy whether or not his name was actually used and little to no character development from this new crew ever occurred, and that would have been a major plus. Also, why would Rick have a Shane mirage of Shane with a hairstyle/facial hair configuration that never appeared on the show? Was Shane-in-the-afterlife just celebrating Movember?  (Oh hey, Jon Bernthal.) Anyway… let’s get into the nitty gritty, shall we?

Editor’s Note: These blog entries are meant to be a discussion of the most current episode of The Walking Dead, so we recommend you watch said episode before reading to avoid spoilers. Keep your eyes peeled for them every Monday morning. On last week’s episode, T-Dog was bitten and self-sacrificed for Carol, who went missing, Lori went into labor and died as Maggie gave her a C-section and Carl shot his dead mother. Meanwhile at Woodbury, Michonne grew more suspicious of The Governor, who flirted with Andrea to get her on his side. This week’s episode, “Say The Word,” is perhaps the most successful one yet this season, in that it provides a nice balance between the milieux of the prison and Woodbury and exploits the best characteristics of its most interesting characters. With a few exceptions, lot of important action goes down and primes the series for going in a more interesting place in future episodes – wishful thinking, perhaps?
