‘Walking Dead’ episode ‘Say the Word’ reveals an insane Rick and more questions

 Laying to rest some regular cast members came with a huge price as Rick became unhinged and stormed into the prison on an insane zombie killing rampage. Daryl steps up as a hero, a man bent on solutions and as a soft heart for survival.

Michonne and the secrets of the Governor continue to unfold as the tension rises.

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” appears to be cemented as the top show on television.

Some “Easter Eggs” worthy of note at the bottom


 Did you notice?

  • Andrea called Michonne by her pet-name, “Meesh”.
  • The backwards hat guy who we’re starting to see more is named “Ronnie,” and he was wearing a shirt with the No. 23 on the back and a stylized lion on the front. Does anyone know what his hat says?
  • When Glenn tracked down Rick in the prison, Rick was breathing really viciously, kind of like Shane was right before he and Rick fought to the death!The producers may be doing that intentionally to subtly suggest that the latent zombie infection that everyone has sometimes affects people’s behavior, even if they haven’t turned into a zombie yet.
  • One of the names of the children on the wall at the daycare center was Sofie. Not Sophia, but Daryl did seem to give it a long look.
  • Other signs in the dayacre center were “Miss Sue’s room” and “Immunized kids”.
  • There was a store in Woodbury called Crabapple Books.
  • There was a cornhole board on the sidewalk in Woodbury. There should have been two dudes in flip flops and visors nearby sipping Corona Light and blasting O.A.R.
  • Ronnie and Merle walk past Milton at the beginning of the episode talking about their fight coming up later that night.
  • The baby noises were really creepy. I know they probably just get them from some sound effect service, but they sounded like they were coming from a much older baby and it just really weirded me out.

What was that song?

That was playing before the big throwdown between Merle and Ronnie? It was Saturday Night Special by Lynyrd Skynyrd. People on songmeanings.net seem to think that song is about gun control.

Why does everything remind me of Lost?

At the beginning when it showed that kid playing with the dog, appearing like flashback for a second. Then it was Woodbury, very similar to the Others village from Lost.
