In the previouslies, AMC takes us back to Woodbury and the Governor’s escalation towards becoming Michonne’s archnemesis. I had actually forgotten (and by that, I mean that I probably looked away the first time) that Michonne had stabbed the Governor’s daughter through the back of the head like that, and I had just started to forget the image of the Governor being stabbed in the eye, so I’d like to thank AMC for taking me back. We’re jumping back in time with this week’s episode to find out what the Governor has been up to this whole time.

Previously, on TWD: the flu spreads rapidly throughout the prison and our favorite characters are in danger of dying. Hershel sent a team out to the veterinary college to get medicine and ended up most likely infected himself. Rick confronted Carol about killing Karen and David and told her she could not come back to the prison.

This week, we pick up right where Rick left off and open with a mesmerizing and haunting scene of him driving back to the prison. He keeps flexing his bandaged hand, probably still throbbing after the beating he gave Ty, and glancing over at the watch Carol gave him. How many things are you going to let haunt you for the rest of your life, Rick?

Unbeknownst to her, Young Olivia (Yara Shahidi) bids her mother Maya (Khandi Alexander) her final goodbye.

The thing is, Cyrus is almost right: This season is shaping up to be Scandal‘s version of “a Greek tragedy in the making.” He just doesn’t realize how far that could spread. He also forgets to mention that in the story that gives this episode its’ title, Icarus didn’t meet his fate entirely on his own — he does so with the tools someone else provided for him.

Things seem to be picking up speed on The Walking Dead, to put it lightly. My own reaction to last week’s episode can be summed up as such: HOLY CRAP. Your trusty team of Roundtablers (Ken Hwynn, Carly Mitchell, Kiki Smith, and myself) help each other through some dramatic moments. And by that I mean: Carol.

Last week, we learned that there’s a fast-moving killer flu infecting the prison. Before they can even get a sense of how bad it is or how to treat it, someone took the initiative to eliminate the infected and killed Karen and David. It didn’t do much good since the infection has already spread. This week, tension runs high all around as more people get sick and Tyreese tries to deal with Karen’s death.

Many people, myself included, felt that the season premiere started off real slow. Nothing exciting happened. Barely anybody died. It was, more or less, boring. It reigned in character development! But action? Not so much. I mean, I didn’t even have to mute the episode at all! (This is the only way I can get through the scary parts of TWD when I watch it alone, okay? Don’t judge me.) Well, to make amends for last week’s lack of grossouts, this episode begins with the first of many lovely scenes that will surely induce fits of “AHUGH GROSS!” Also, we learn more about Michonne, which warrants a +1000 to the writers. FINALLY.
