I been reading these comics ever sense I was exploring chapters, and found one at random. At the time I HEARD of the comic.. The show's popularity must of made them popular again, cause now their everywhere.. I ask for one every christmas, it's like tradition now. Their always black and white, to be like an old 30's movie, but with modern day graphics.

Anyway, time review em from a prospective of someone who saw the show first, it'll be a fun comparison.. After watching the new season premier, I figured why not.. I have the first 6.. So that's all I know so far. So here we go.

As you expect, it starts with Rick Grimes and Shane Walsh stuck in a gun fight, but only one of them, against only rick and shane.. Rick is shot into a coma like we know from the show, Shane shot in the hand two, but that's never brought up later.

Anyway, Rick awakens in a hospital, with no idea he's in a zombie run world. Which speaking of which.. It's so refreshing they actually call them "zombies". But than when exploring the hospital he cafeteria door blocked by a piece of wood. Rick removes the wood and opens the door only to find multiple zombies inside the room....

I was planning on posting this sooner, but then real life stuff happened. You know, school, work, all that bullshit. But hey, better late than never!

Without further ado, here are my annual death predictions. This year I think most of the deaths will be minor characters, so there will probably more deaths this season than last, especially with the war coming and all.

CHARACTERS I'M SURE WILL DIE:

SHIVA:
When: During the War.
Why: Having that kind of characters is complicated and expensive. At first, I didn't think they would bring in Shiva at all, because of all the CGI, bit I'm so glad they did! But I don't think she'll last long. Her time is coming up.
How: I think she'll go down fighting, protecting Ezekiel. I actually think we see her death scene in the trailer, when she is surrounded by walkers. I'm sad to see her go, but it was inevitable.

Welcome to the final part of my Hogwarts sorting for this fandom. The last, but not least, Gryffindor!




DARYL:
One of the Gryffindor traits is that they are impulsive, and I think we can all agree that Daryl is probably the most impulsive character of this series. Very often, he acts before thinking and ends up putting himself or someone else in trouble. When he's angry, he acts and then feels guilty about what he did, like when he punched Negan, which resulted in Glenn's death. Or when he opened the door to a bunch of walkers that nearly killed him and Beth and resulted in her kidnapping.

Daryl is also very courageous, always ready to go out and save people. You'll never see him sitting on his ass. He was the first one ready to go and get Andrea after the farm fell and she was left behind. He spent days out in the woods, nearly dying, while searching for Sophia. He spent weeks looking for the Governor, to protect his family. He's always on the front line, ready to fight for the ones he loves.

Are you guys ready for the third part of my Walking Dead Hogwarts Sorting? Next house is Slytherin!


Before we get into this house, I want to remind people that just because you're in Slytherin doesn't mean you're a bad guy or an evil person. I don't want anyone bitching in the comments about the fact that I put some of the "good guys" here. If I put them here, it's because I think it's where they belong, no matter which side of the battles they're on. Also, this far into the apocalypse, there are no "good guys" anymore, so it doesn't even matter.



RICK:
Of course Rick is a Slytherin. He has every quality needed for this house. Rick is probably one of the most resourceful people of this show and the perfect example of that was when he was trapped by Joe's arms and still manage to win the fight by biting the guy's jugular off. WITH HIS FREAKING TEETH! That scene is still one of the best scenes of the series. When he's in trouble, he always finds a way to get out of it, even when he has literally nothing to help him, he still gets out.

Here is the second part of the TWD Hogwarts sorting. Now we're gonna sort the characters into the Ravenclaw house.






EUGENE:
Let's start with the most obvious character for this house, the genius Eugene. Eugene is the smartest character on this show. He might not be a fighter or the most courageous character; he's actually, as he calls himself, a coward. But he is a very valuable ally during the apocalypse, because he can make pretty much anything from scrap - from bombs, to fire, to even poison. He can be dangerous another ways than most characters. His weapon is his mind. He's very manipulative, and survives by lying to others for their protection. Of course, he'll chose the easiest way, because that's the smart thing to do.

It takes intelligence to do everything he does, but he is also very creative, using whatever he finds to make useful stuff like weapons.

I'm starting a new series of articles that will consist of me sorting different fandoms into Hogwarts houses. This is the first of what I hope will be a long series.


I will concentrate on the characters from the TV show, to keep it simple. There's going to be one article per house, so this is the first of four.

We'll start with the best house, my own house, Hufflepuff.




GLENN:
Glenn is a very loyal character, which is the biggest and most important quality of a true Hufflepuff. He's always been there for his family, doing everything in his power to protect and provide for them, never letting them down, ever. He was even sorta taken for granted in the earlier seasons by the other characters, being he was always ready to do something for them.

He was even loyal to his "enemy". When he met Tara, she was on the opposite side of the war, yet he helped her get out of the prison alive, while pretty much any other characters would've left her there to die, but Glenn couldn't bring himself to do that. Then, in the tunnels, he could've left her there and saved himself, but he...

Well, this took long enough, but better late than never, right? Here is my (finally!) review for Season 7B.


The first half ended on a hopeful note, with Daryl reuniting with Team Family and Rick going to the Hilltop to make an alliance and to build forces to beat Negan.




The second half started strong, with Jesus taking Team Family to meet Ezekiel, which is something I was waiting for, because in the first half we haven't really seen the Kingdom again after meeting them and they are my favorite community. Bias aside, this meeting was really interesting, and Team Family's reaction to Shiva was just priceless!

I understood Ezekiel's decision of not wanting to join the fight, because, so far, he didn't have any problems with the Saviors, so I wasn't mad at him for saying no, but I knew something would eventually happen down the line and make him change his mind.

I think the highlight of the episode was Rick and Michonne cutting all of these walkers with the wire and the cars. That was just fucking epic!

I've already made a comparison with Sophia from the graphic novels and her character being put into three different characters on the TV version.


The show kind of did that with Andrea's character as well. The difference being that Andrea's character from the source material has been spread out through four characters on the TV show, but those four characters are on the show at the same time.




CAROL:
After Andrea's death in the TV show, the first character that started to get some of GN!Andrea was Carol.

Carol has come a long way to be where she is right now, and they completely changed her character from the source material (thank fucking god). In season 4, Carol got the twins storyline from the graphic novels. That story originally belongs to Andrea, where she adopts Billy and Ben, the twins of Allen and Donna. She promises him she'll take of them like they're her own on his death bed. Then, after the prison fell, Ben, started to act weird, like killing cats and stuff like that and he eventually killed his brother Billy and was then put down, because he was considered too...

This is a bit old, and probably irrelevant because we're so much further in the story now, but I decided to go ahead a write this anyways.

During season 4B, it was the first time our core group got separated and scattered everywhere. But what is interesting is that the entire 8 episodes focused on five specific relationships and the nature of all of these relationships is completely different.

ROMANCE:
The most obvious and easy relationship to develop is a romantic one. Here, it was giving to Sasha and Bob.

Sasha and Bob started off as two regular individual, Bob having an obvious interest in Sasha and her not so much. Bob was able to change her mind during their time stuck together, but it only ended in tragedy. Typical.



PARENT/CHILD:
Then, we had a huge focus on Michonne and Carl developing a close bond, like she found another son and he found another mom. It was cute, you have to admit it. She told him stuff she had never told anyone before, and he did the same. And in the end, she's with Rick now, so she really is like his new mom. All works just fine.

Game of Thrones is known for its famous 9th episodes, where they kill off big characters. I think The Walking Dead is having a pattern like that, but a bit different.

As we know, Scott Gimple was promoted to showrunner for the fourth season and has been the showrunner ever since. The first showrunner being Frank Darabont (first two seasons) and the second one being Glen Mazzara (third season).

Ever since Gimple has been the showrunner, he has introduced a new character or a new group every 10th episode. I thought it was interesting to look into it.

First, in season 4, we were introduced to Team Washington in the 10th episode, called Inmates. They were there only for a small scene at the end, like a cliffhanger and a tease for the comics fans.



Then, in season 5, the same thing happened. We were introduced to Aaron at the very end of the episode as a cliffhanger and a tease, in the episode Them.

Before the season starts back next week, I will make my review of the first half of season 7. Let's recap what went on in those eight episodes, shall we?



First of all, the premiere was good, but they stretch the deaths scene way too much, the audience had already waited 7 long months to finally find out who Negan killed and they still decided to only show us halfway through the episode. Another bad decision on the writers' part. People were already pissed and they were able to piss them even more. Good job! Especially since 95% of the viewers had already figured out it was Abraham, so just show us already and get it over with!

Like I said in my previous review, Glenn's death would've been a bigger surprise had they killed Abraham in the finale, because people wouldn't have expected it. Also, Nicotero had ruin that twist a couple of months back by saying that there was multiple deaths. Great job dude!

Ok, now that this is out of the way, I actually loved that they did Glenn's death frame by frame like the comics, because it was epic and perfect in the comics, it wouldn't have been as good had they not made it...

I've decided to write a review of every half seasons. And as I have already written a review of the entire series from season one to season 6A, I'll do a throwback and do one of 6B before I do 7A.



The season started back on Valentine's day, which is really ironic given the fact that Rick pretty much chops his girlfriend's arm off. After the shitty cliffhanger of episode 8, at least the payoff of that cliffhanger was great. It did take a really long time, but it payed off.

The death of the entire Anderson family was epic and true to the comics, and y'all know how I love it when they stick to the comics (link). It was brutal, but that's why we love this show. I have to admit I was really happy to see Jessie go, because what a useless character! Also Ron we a little prick, so good riddance. A bit sad about Sam, he was just a little kid after all and I don't think he deserved all the hate he got, but *link* I guess it was his time to go.

Ever since the Saviors appeared on the show, the writers have provided a couple of alter egos to members of Team Family.

Characters that are paralleling each other and have actually a lot in common, despite the fact that they are on opposite sides. Characters that are alike, but had different paths and that could've easily ended where the other is right now, had they had a different path.

Each pair has confronted each other at some point on the show.


CAROL & PAULA:



The first one we met was Paula.

Paula was paired with Carol in the episode The Same Boat (6x13). They were showed talking to each other throughout the episode and we learned about Paula's past, which had some similarities to Carol's.

Both of them lost children because of the apocalypse. Paula lost four daughters. Carol lost one biological daughter and three surrogate daughters (the Samuels and Beth, with whom I always felt like she had a mother/daughter-ish relationship to). Both also lost their husbands to the apocalypse.

Dose anybody read the orginal Walking Dead comics.

I found them, and knowing my love of the show, decided to buy the first.

And now I recently got the third "Safety behind Bars", and it's still yet to disappoint, I love these books..

Anyway, this isn't really about that, it's about THOMAS a villain in both the comics and the series.

But I like him WAY more in the comics, he's far less practicable.

In the tv series, you know from moment one, Thomas is a bad dude, he has that look about him.
And the cold murder of Big Tiny proved us correct, he was a murderer, nothing more.. And died in disgrace.

In the comics, he's still a murderer who died in disgrace.
But you don't you never EXPECTED him to be the killer.

Sophia is an important part of the graphic novels and yet had an early demise on the tv show. Though the character of Sophia is no longer on the tv show, that doesn't mean her role died with her.

I think that Beth was used as a first replacement for Sophia and Enid as a second replacement for her. Let me tell you why.



Sophia's journey from the graphic novels starts with a little girl frightened by this world. Later on, after her mom dies, she is been taken care of by Maggie and Glenn who become her surrogate parents. And then, after Glenn's death, she becomes a fighter and can take care of herself now. She also had a small relationship with Carl when they are at the prison and still has a close bond with him throughout the story.



We've seen three characters take on this role on the tv version and here is why I think they used three characters instead of keeping the original Sophia. The biggest reason is that, writing a graphic novel and writing a tv show, with actors, are two things completely different.

Daryl has to escape at some point, he won't always stay a prisoner at the Sanctuary. And I think he'll end up at the Kingdom. Here is how and why.



I think in the end, Dwight and Sherry will help Daryl escape. He can't escape alone, that's pretty much impossible, he needs help. At least from Sherry, but I'd like to think Dwight will be in on it too.



After he does escape, he can't go back home to Alexandria. That's the first place Negan will go looking for him, and Daryl would put everyone at Alexandria in danger for going back there.

The safest thing Daryl could do is go to the Hilltop. He knows where it is and Negan might not think to go look for him there. But then, he might after all, because the Saviors know that Hilltop was dealing with Alexandria.

This is why I think that when when he gets to the Hilltop, someone, probably Jesus, as he's the one who goes out the most to deal with other communities, will tell him about the Kingdom. It would be the safest place for Daryl to go after his escape, because Negan deals with the Kingdom outside of the Kingdom. The...

Now that we have four communities and not just one, it's inevitable that Team Family will eventually separate and not all live at the same place. They'll each chose the community they like better to live in.

This is a really short article with my predictions on who I think will live where.


ALEXANDRIA SAFE-ZONE:

I think most of Team Family will actually stay at Alexandria, because they're already installed and they feel comfortable there.

Of course, Rick, Carl and Michonne will stay there. Rick is the leader and Carl and Michonne are his immediate family, so there's no doubt about those three.



Eugene, Rosita and Tara, I'm pretty sure will stay there. Those three will always stick together and they are well where they are. They never showed any signs that they could be moving.

Gabriel will stay there also, I don't see him moving. He has a church, he's happy where he is.

As you all know, the official character portraits for season 7 were released a couple of days ago and they are completely different from what they've done before.

First, they are completely red, usually they are pretty much desaturated or plain black and white like last season.

I get that the red refers to Negan and Lucille and the bloody kills that will occur in the premiere. But they still got my interest. Because usually, on the character portraits, the characters pretty much all kinda look alike. But not here. In these, they all have different facial expressions. I know nothing is ever done for nothing when it comes to The Walking Dead, so I know it means something.

I decided to take a look at them closely and this is what I came up with. This will be a short article. I'm not going in depth here, just some little things I can see.

Before you read this, you might want to read my link article. Because I'll be referring to it a lot in this article.

I'm back this year, as promised. Here are my death predictions for the next season.

I have less predictions than last year, but there are bigger characters on it.

I think this season will be a bit different than season 6, with less deaths but bigger ones.

Shall we start?

CHARACTERS I'M SURE WILL DIE:

ABRAHAM FORD
When: Season premiere.
Why: They've been foreshadowing his death since season 6, with him talking about the future and making babies and starting a new life. That's a huge red flag. Then he has a really touching 'goodbye' scene with Eugene. Red flag again. And everything in the last scene of season 6 is pointing to him dying (as I mentioned in my detailed article about this death).
How: Lucilled by Negan.



GLENN RHEE
When: Season premiere.
Why: The writers were always talking about a big left turn when it comes to the Lucille killing. And I started to think that maybe this left turn wasn't just them switching the character...

I've already said it in the poll section, but I'm 100% sure Abraham is the one that got Lucilled and let me show you why.

So, I've watched the scene over and over for about 20 times now (I know I'm crazy, but I can't help it). And, let's break this scene down now, shall we?

First of all, let's take a look at the lineup.



In order, from Negan's POV we have:
Glenn, Rosita, Daryl, Michonne, Abraham, Maggie, Rick, Sasha, Aaron, Carl, Eugene

Like my dear friend Dasm pointed out, every other character is a woman and Carl. They are strategically placed.

Now, Negan's speech, at the end, actually gives us a couple of clues!



When he picks the person, the camera is now in this person's POV. And Negan says:

'Anybody moves, anybody says anything, cut the boy's other eye out and feed it to his father and then we'll start.'

Guys, I`v heard that Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) will be taken off of the show!! It was on the news saying that he was in trouble but I really hope that it isn't true. It was a video on MSN that I started to watch but I turned it off because I didn't want it to spoil anymore but all I heard was that he is being killed off and that he is in deep trouble...
Say what you think and tell me please I need to know!! And although I`m only on season 5 episode 2 I still know these things. Please say what you think and know, thanks!

Morgan
Alright, just to start things up I have to say the walking dead is amazing, always has been, and I have been looking forward to seeing Morgan appear for 4 whole seasons! Yet now that he's here I can't help but begin to dislike, not him, but his shitty decisions.

Between the obvious fact that carol is the only with her head on straight, and that Morgan is too blinded with his constant statement "All life is precious." I've come to realize that all life is most definitely not precious, not in the slightest.

For example the latest episode where Morgan had pretty much thrown Carol to the ground just to not only prove a point but to save the life of.. a wolf? Only to have him turn around, stab Morgan in the back, then run off with the new lesbian doctor, whom BTW could have been very useful at the state Alexandra is in! ( Seriously Morgan we all saw this shit coming. ) Not to mention now Tara has lost ANOTHER meaningful person in her life, which sucks because there seems to be not very many lesbians left in this zombie filled world their living in.

What's the best and the worst season, according to you guys? [link]

We'll start with the worst and finish with the best. This list also includes the first half of the sixth season. AND this article has my opinion all over it. You've been warned.


Alright, so link please!!!

6. SEASON 4
Highest rated episode: Too Far Gone [9.7]
Lowest rated episode: Still [7.1]
Overall rating: 8.4

I agree this is a really uneven season. It started off strong, with the Big Spot and then the Ebola-like disease.... But then they cut the momentum with two full episodes JUST on The Governor, and let's face it, those episodes weren't really that good. They could've easily put all of that in only one episode and it would've been enough. The mid-season finale was link though!

This list is based on what the audience rated the episodes. [link]
And, like with the top 10 best episodes, I'll tell you my opinion on those episodes.


10. WHAT HAPPENED AND WHAT'S GOING ON
Premiere of the mid-fifth season.
Aired: February 8th 2015
Rated: 7.9

I personally liked this episode. I'm surprised it's on that list. I agree it's not the best one, but there was worst episodes than this. I actually loved the 'link' aspect of it. It was kinda cool and interesting. It was new.



9. LIVE BAIT
Sixth episode of the fourth season.
Aired: November 17th 2013
Rated: 7.9

This episode was okay. I liked the introduction of the Chambler family. And I really loved all of the references to Rise of the Governor. But I kinda hated that they tried to humanize the Governor. He was and was always going to be a monster. So yeah,...
