Like I said in my recap Monday, the mid-season finale’s rescue mission caused some survivor shuffling in “The Suicide King.” Daryl and Merle are together again–and apart from everyone else; Michonne, Tyreese and his group, and the Originals all attempt to get along in this new survivor setup (Spoiler alert: they fail miserably); And Glenn and Maggie begin what seems to be their slow drift apart.
The breakdown: Each week, a Walking Dead roundtabler or I will provide a recap the day after the newest episode airs. The next Friday morning a roundtable discussion of the episode is posted featuring Joe, and a variety of guest commenters.
Jeannie Chan, Carly Mitchell, and Jenn Kim join me to talk about the previous episode before the next one this Sunday.

The Walking Dead has returned! Huzzah! It takes quite a fan base for a TV show to come back in awards season. Competing with The Grammys, I made a night of channel flipping between my live-tweeting duties and undead counter programming: Bruno Mars crooning to zombies groaning; watching Rick’s sanity slip a little more to Jennifer Lopez’s slipping taste; witnessing Andrea’s desire for normalcy result in a huge case of denial (willfully ignoring fish tanks full of zombie heads?) to… nope. There’s really nothing like Andrea’s thought process.
Note: The Walking Dead Roundtable will be slightly different from now on: If you’ve read our Scandal roundtables, you’ll be familiar with the setup: each week, a Racialicious denizen will provide an episode summary the day after the newest episode airs. For The Walking Dead, that day will be Mondays. Then, on Friday a longer roundtable discussion of the episode is posted hosted by moi, Joe, accompanied by a circle of insightful fans.
So, now there will be two Walking Dead posts, or 2x the zombie fun.
Recap for The Walking Dead Episode 3.9: “The Suicide King” appears under the cut!
