Meet me after the small time and space jump for my thoughts on “Empress of Mars.”

Strap yourselves in and meet me after the super speed bump for my thoughts on “Fallout.”

We ended last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” with the attempted hostage exchange botched and Sasha left unconscious. Carol and Beth are at the mercy of the wicked witch of Grady Memorial.
