The Walking Dead: Recap of Episode 3.08 – Made To Suffer; The Cast Looks Ahead to 2013



Post Thumb:


This mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” was written by creator Robert Kirkman so you can bet we were left with our jaws agape at the end of the cliff-hanging episode! It was directed by Billy Gierhart.

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet. This is a recap with specific details from the episode. Continue only if you have watched it.

A shambling walker in the woods started tonight’s episode. Tyreese dispatched of said walker and joined his group while they were chased by a horde. One woman was bit and when the group reached the knocked down wall of an abandoned building, Tyreese convinced them to let her enter with them out of compassion for her son. The group climbed in and when the camera panned out, the building belongs to a prison.

Back at Woodbury, Andrea was admiring the Governor’s photograph of his family. Andrea offered her help to cremate Mr Coleman’s body. “Woodbury’s starting to grow on you, huh?” Back in his man cave, the Governor let out his walker daughter, Penny. Singing a lullaby, he thought he was calming Penny when he realized that she only wanted the bowl of meat nearby. Frustrated he bound her and locked her back in her cage.

In the captive room, Maggie explained to a beat-up Glenn that she was not violated by the Governor. They shared a tender moment before Glenn broke off the dead walker’s arm and fashioned a weapon for Maggie with a broken radius and ulna.

Rick, Daryl, Oscar and Michonne were scoping out Woodbury’s gate when Michonne found another way in. Inside, the Governor and Merle strategized to take out the occupants at the prison. The Governor suggested that Merle should turn Daryl to their side and decided to get rid of Maggie and Glenn lest Andrea found out about them.

Michonne brought the group into town via the interrogation room. While the group tried to decide next steps, a curious extra came in to be knocked unconscious by the group and gagged.

Back at the prison, while Beth was taking care of the baby Judith, Axel got a little lecherous and Carol confronted him. After learning that she wasn’t a lesbian because of her short hair, he got a little more interested despite her amusement. Will Daryl get some competition?

Maggie and Glenn tried to escape and Maggie was pretty deadly with the sharp walker arm bones. Her dying victim shot off some machine gun rounds as he dropped that alerted the town as well as Rick and his group. Merle overpowered Glenn when Maggie stopped Merle with the machine gun. But it was too late, Merle’s minions arrived.

Rick and the group found Maggie and Glenn as they were about to be executed. With a smoke bomb, they were rescued. Outside, Andrea approached the Governor about the gunshots when they learned from the freed curious extra that external people with guns were in their town.

Rick and the group hid in a building when Michonne disappeared. Glenn told Daryl about Merle and confessed revealing the prison’s location. Rick convinced Daryl to escape Woodbury first instead of looking for Merle.

The Governor and Merle delegated the search party but assigned Andrea to house calls. Despite her protests, the Governor refused to let her join in. Michonne entered the Governor’s apartment and made herself comfortable with her katana drawn.

Rick and the group readied their escape plan with more smoke bombs and a gunfight ensued. Hearing them, Andrea defied her orders and joined in. She only saw Oscar though. The Governor ordered her to get off the streets.

Rick saw Shane with a shotgun coming his way (yes, that was indeed actor Jon Bernthal making a guest appearance). The shooter hit Oscar and Rick took down the shooter. Turns out Rick was hallucinating again as it wasn’t really Shane but another extra. It was too late for Oscar, and Maggie put him down. Why is it that only one black man can be alive with the group at a time?

In the quiet of their prison block, Beth, Hershel and Carl heard a woman’s screams in the distance. Carl decided to go investigate. Carl wandering? Time to take a shot! Carl found Tyreese and his group fighting off a horde and helped.

Michonne heard a sound in the Governor’s apartment and found his man cave. She found Penny’s cage and released her. Even the hardened warrior would melt for a child in chains. Upon learning Penny’s condition, Michonne was about to put her out of her misery when the Governor aimed his gun at her to stop. Michonne positioned Penny as her shield and the Governor disarmed. Michonne was surprised at this gesture but that didn’t stop her from stabbing her katana through Penny’s head.

In a breathtaking fight sequence, Michonne gave the Governor his permanent comic-book look and was about to finish him off when Andrea came in screaming bloody murder with her gun on Michonne. After a short standoff, Michonne realized Andrea’s intentions, lowered her katana and walked away. Andrea saw but ignored the severed heads in the man cave while the Governor cried over his dead walker daughter.

After Carl had led Tyreese’s group to safety, he locked the group in the prison block. Tyreese convinced his group that it was finally safe there and took care of their dead.

At the Woodbury infirmary, Andrea confronted the Governor about his man cave and his beef with Michonne but before she could digest his answers, Merle delivered news that Rick and the group escape out of Woodbury. The Governor was furious.

Outside Woodbury’s wall, Rick, Maggie and Glenn tried to regroup when a bloody Michonne tried to re-join them. Distrusting her, Rick disarmed Michonne from her katana. She let it go willingly? She must be warming to the group! Whether they look for the missing Daryl or go back to the prison, Michonne convinced Rick that they still need her.

In the zombie fight club pit, the now one-eyed Governor started his impression of Bill Pullman in Independence Day before delivering the twist. The Governor accused Merle of being traitorous and brought out Daryl. The crowd is whipped into a killing frenzy while Andrea doesn’t know what to think. The Governor smiled.

Damn! February is so far away…

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!



Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.


KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!

Jason Lives Director Pitched Follow-Up: Jason Vs Cheech and Chong



One of my favorite entries in the Friday the 13th series is director ‘s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The mixture of old-school gothic horror and comedy is always a welcome treat around these parts.

But why wasn’t McLoughlin asked to write and direct the follow-up?

Actually, it turns out he was asked to follow up Jason Lives, McLoughlin recently told Mick Garris on the Post Mortem podcast.

But his pitch – Jason vs Cheech and Chong – didn’t go over so well…

“[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason,” McLoughlin says. “And I said, ‘What are you thinking? I don’t know what it could be now.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you think about Freddy (Krueger) and Jason?’ And I go, ‘But Freddy’s at New Line and the guys at Paramount have [Jason].’ And it’s like, ‘Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.’ So, I started thinking about that, going, It doesn’t make sense. I mean he lives in one realm and — you know, I take this stuff very seriously, what realm a monster’s supposed to stay in. And he came back, he goes, ‘Eh, forget it, it’s not going to work anyway.’ And I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.’”

Too bad. While I don’t know how well a Cheech and Chong/Friday the 13th flick would go, with McLoughlin at the helm, the film would have at least been funny as hell.

Plus we already got these two knuckleheads in Part III.

Are you upset we never got Tom McLoughlin’s Jason vs Cheech and Chong? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Friday the 13th: Part VI – Jason Lives on Blu-ray HERE.
