The one takeaway that I got from the season premiere of The Walking Dead was that love was definitely in the air. The slow build continues for Carol and Darryl as the twosome have gone from an icky mother/son vibe to something playful and flirty that doesn’t skeeve me out. Then there is the budding May/December romance between tweenager Carl and teenager Beth. Despite their difference in ages (he’s 13 and she’s 16 I think) the two of them were making googoo eyes at one another all episode even causing Herschel’s protective father radar to go off.
Finally we had the energy being thrown off by Michonne and Andrea that had me thinking we had switched to the L Word in Zombieland. Don’t believe me? Give it a few days and watch the slash fiction explosion that the two of them will generate.
And Rick has finally realized what an annoying cow Lori is. So all is right with the world.
