OK so I may be a little late with this post about this episode, but the season just got uploaded to Netflix and I must say that the episode was amazing. Although I love to watch Walking Dead for my own reasons, I chose this particular episode to post and talk about because this episode made me think about change. This episode seemed to have a new air of violence especially when it came to Rick,one of the main characters. I saw that he had transformed from being a normal guy trying to survive to a monster. The episode focused on the group working together to survive as usual but I saw that Rick needed his group to remind him who they were and what they were about. As if he forgot that he was a good person that saves innocent people. The episode made me think how easy it is for people with the best of intentions to be turned into potentially bad people because of struggles. This episode stood as a metaphor for what life can be to some people, I have seen many people turn into selfish, and mean people because they learn that being nice always has a price to pay. The price for being nice, especially in the times we are living in can be really bad for personal advancements. However I think that the price is so expensive that it needs to be. Part of being human sometimes means that you make decisions that may be "stupid" or go against your own well being for the benefit of others. If we do not have people on this earth that see beyond themselves then our race will not survive for long. The episode of Walking Dead just reminded me that we have to remember why we started doing the things we are doing , and not get so caught up in the obstacles. In other words the big picture is more important than the selfie.
