|Stop filming, idiot, and listen to your parents|
Now on to my thoughts about this week's episode of FTWD ...
I adored this episode. I thought it was so fantastic and so well written. Everything that I hoped for was in it, well, save for one thing ...
I thought it really showed what would happen if the world started to break down. There would be some believers out there, like the teenager, but then others would be in denial. There would be a ton of misinformation out there and it would add to the chaos and ultimate disaster.
The only one that really didn't behave like a normal human being would was Madison. In order to protect your children, would you not tell them what was going on? It's not like her daughter, Alicia, is a toddler. She will be able to understand what has happened when her mother explains to her how the events unfolded. But to not tell her, puts her at risk. Maybe the writers are trying to say that she is in shock from killing the principal, but that is the part that I just don't understand. She has encountered the Walkers twice now, both times knowing that they must be killed. This time around, it should hit home more. She had to kill someone she knew intimately. It's not just her kid's friend. She looked into his eyes and had to do it herself. At that point, you tell your daughter.
Get a new coat.
The husband, Travis, was still fantastic this week. He goes to get his son, but, now that I think about it, why doesn't he tell him what's going on to get him to come to him? Why let him be a petulant child at that point? Aren't there more important things going on? Also, when you ex-wife is arguing with you, tell her the truth. When she hangs up on the phone, you get to her house and you tell her what's going on. Why the secrecy? I get why the government might wait, but this is too much. Here's how simple it is "people are acting like they have rabies. They are eating people." Done. Then say, "now can we get our son here?"
The answer would be yes, a resounding, yes.
I do get why Travis, his son, and ex would hide out. They are thinking once the police get things calm, there will be a reprieve, and they will be able to flee.
The cool thing is yes, they thought they had more time. I like that. That's cool.
However, by the time they either have to flee this establishment, or there is a reprieve, more people will know what is going on and the panic and chaos that they could have beat will ensure. It's like concert traffic, they are too late at this point to beat the madness.
I also thought it was cool when the police officer was stockpiling water. That would for sure happen. Once you'd seen what he'd seen, and there is no larger government response? That would absolutely be plausible.
Plus, on the feasibility of the government, wouldn't they tell the police officers on the ground? I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't.
Well, I started this post stating that I really enjoyed this episode and then proceeded to tear it apart. I will stand by the statement that I did very much enjoy the episode. The only thing that was really glaring was the fact that the mother wouldn't tell the daughter what was going on.
I can't wait until next week!
