(CONTAINS SPOILERS if you missed viewing this episode when it aired) The Making of Episode 302, Sick: Inside The Walking Dead: “Sometimes the humans are even more terrifying…”
The cast and crew give an inside look at the creation of the adrenaline pumping zombie attack in Episode 302.
Recap Episode 302 (SPOILERS):
Yes, sometimes the humans are more terrifying but sometimes they’re like Tomas and his ‘gang,’ who even after being explicitly coached by Rick and Co. to only ‘brain’ the zombies, continued as if they were still the uninformed dolts that couldn’t find their way out of the prison cafeteria for 10 months. It took almost no time at all for Rick to establish himself as the alpha male in the prison, for Tomas to attempt to lethally undermine Rick’s position, and for Rick to lethally undermine Tomas–permanently.
(CONTAINS SPOILERS if you missed viewing this episode when it aired) Inside Episode 302, The Walking Dead: Sick (VIDEO):
Carol tries to save Herschel, Rick deals with the prisoners, and Lori saves the day in Episode 302.
While the men dealt with Tomas and his band of ex-cafeterians, the mortally wounded Hershel (Scott Wilson) was tended to by the womenfolk. Carol had learned basic first aid from Hershel over the winter and we saw a new side to her–confident as she controlled the bleeding, gave orders for what she must have to patch him up and then after Carl went to the prison infirmary, dispatching 2 walkers (off camera) in his quest, bandaged him up. In the end though, it was Lori that went beyond the pale when Hershel was gasping for his last breath, hovering between here and there as she performed mouth to mouth resuscitation on him –putting herself at great risk if it did not work.
AMC Officially Returning to DISH Network:
Cablevision Systems and AMC Networks announced today they have settled all litigation with Dish Network. Settlement includes new longterm agreement for Dish to resume carriage of AMC Networks including AMC, IFC, Sundance Channel and WE TV. AMC will return today on Dish channel 131. The other networks will return November 1. That’s good news for Dish subscribers who missed watching The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men and other AMC shows because Dish had dropped the networks back in June. Dish had maintained publicly it was a carriage fee dispute, but Cablevision-AMC Networks said it really was because of a $2.4 billion breach of contract suit over the satcaster’s decision to drop the now-defunct VOOM Channels that were included as part of AMC Networks spinoff from Cablevision into a separate company.
