The Walking Dead Recap – Season 3, Episode 5: Say The Word

Carl and Lori

Before I do a recap of this week’s episode of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,“ It was important for me to say a proper goodbye to the two characters that are no longer with us. Last week on Episode 4, one of my favorite characters T-Dog (IronE Singleton) was bitten by a walker due to the revengeful actions of Andrew, a prisoner who we were led to believe was dead. And later in the show, T-Dog’s commitment to the survival of the group was proven by his sacrificing himself to walkers to enable Carol to escape. But did she? Sad as this was, the really upsetting scene was not too far behind.

Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) who knew that she would not survive the birth of her child, asked Maggie to do a C-section on her. Lori’s only concern was for her baby and her son to survive. Her tender, encouraging words spoken to Carl, plays over and over in my mind. Carl, who had been forced to surrender his childhood to the horrors of the apocalypse, was the one who had to shoot his mother to keep her from turning.  Rick and the others learn of Lori’s death after Carl and Maggie, who is holding the baby, enters the courtyard… How will this affect Rick, who never took that final step needed to mend the rift in his marriage or Carl, who may be psychologically damaged and beyond healing? And where is Carol?   More about this week’s episode after the jump.
