The Walking Dead
The search for Beth felt like an afterthought. This episode's main focus was thankfully on Carol and Daryl's feelings. We saw what Carol did for the short amount of time after Rick banished her. We learned that she once took Sophia to an abused women's shelter, but only stayed for a day before heading back to her abusive husband. She talked about not being sure if they get to save people anymore, but she's trying.
Of course Daryl really gets Carol. He didn't push her into talking about what happened with Mika and Lizzie. When he saw she was bothered by a child walker in the shelter, he took it upon himself to burn the body for him. I love the relationship between these two. They work really well as a unit, and even though the plot called for them to make so many stupid mistakes during this episode, I can almost forgive it.
Carol gets taken by the hospital people, and Noah held Daryl back from attacking them. So there you have it, Noah WAS the one in the bushes with Daryl.
As much as I like Kat Dennings, I wasn't too crazy about the whole "twins trying to sell the company" subplot. Even if it meant seeing Jane Fonda again. There's only 4 more episodes this season, do we really need to fuck around with this? I'm trying to hold off judgment for awhile, but it's hard.
Neal really wants to run the story about the stolen documents he has, but now he's the one on the run. I really hope that's not the last time we see Neal this season.
Sloan and Don are still adorable.
Hallie got fired from ACN. I was hoping that would lead to Jim finally getting with Maggie, but of course Maggie met a guy on the bus that looks like her future love interest. Oi.
Agents of SHIELD
This week started off like an episode of Law and Order, but definitely got better as we went on. It was actually kind of disturbing, ABC level disturbing that is.
We figured out why Coulson was carving in true AoS fashion where everything is tied up with a neat little bow. Yet they still left us plenty of questions to keep moving.
Ward shaved his beard, the only thing that was making him somewhat tolerable at this point. That's a shame.
Is it just me, or is Jemma not liking Mac? She and Fitz didn't even interact this episode, but Fitz had a moment with Mac how he said the Brain's memory is never completely wiped, things just get disconnected. There's hope for him to get better, though I think he's going to have to go into that memory machine to achieve that.
