‘The Walking Dead’ Marathon Starts Today On AMC

Posted Saturday, February 11th, 2012 01:00 pm GMT -4 by

The Walking Dead returns this Sunday, but did you miss an episode? Forget something about Season 1? What was it that the doctor said to Rick before they left?

AMC is showing love for this Valentines Day weekend and will host a marathon of both seasons so far. Starting today at 8pm Eastern, they will show Season 1 through Sunday up until 1:30am Eastern at which time there will be a break after the episode is complete. The marathon will then continue on with a single episode at 4:30am Eastern and then another single episode at 1:30pm Eastern. After a half hour break the marathon starts back up again at 3pm leading up to the highly anticipated mid-season premiere at 9pm Eastern.

We’ve gotten some teasers so far for the return of ‘The Walking Dead‘.  We’ve been waiting patiently for ‘Nebraska’ to premiere. Now we can start all over again, from the beginning to remind ourselves exactly what we are waiting for. Gather your friends, its time for a zombie gore fest!

    Episode 8: “Nebraska”
    The episode starts at the exact same spot the previous one left off. One of the walkers who got shot (the stepmom) tries to grab Beth (Hershel’s youngest daughter), but is killed by Andrea with a swift hoe through the head. Shane shouts some more and Hershel tells the group to “LEAVE MY FARM!” for the umpteenth time. Maggie finally slaps Shane right in the face and things cool down somewhat.

    Sophia is buried along with Hershel’s dead family members from the barn. T-Dog, Andrea, and Shane pile the other corpses on a truck, drive to a nearby field and burn the bodies in a pyre. Hershel has something of a mental breakdown as he slips out of the farm and goes to a bar in the town to get shitfaced. Beth goes into catatonic shock from the ordeal at the barn, so Rick and Glenn head to town in order to bring Hershel back.

    Meanwhile, Dale tells a skeptical Lori about his suspicions that Shane killed Otis and his belief that Shane will sooner or later kill someone else. Daryl snaps and shouts at Lori when asked to bring Rick and Hershel home quicker, stating he’s “done looking for people”. Lori heads out by herself, hits a random walker on the way and flips the car into a ditch. It’s not shown what happened to her. That’s the second (and the last) actual walker we see in the episode.

    Glenn and Rick find Hershel in the bar. After a five-minute rant by a drunk Hershel, two dudes (Tony and Dave) enter the bar. They are bad guys. They inform Glenn, Rick, and Hershel that Fort Benning is overrun and they’re heading for Nebraska, which is supposedly safe. “Low population, lots of guns,” as they put it.

    The two quickly deduce that Rick and company must have a farm nearby and want to go there because “they’ve got people to look out for”. “That’s not gonna happen,” says Rick. There’s a tense situation, since both guys are armed and threaten to take the farm by force. This culminates with a Clint Eastwood-style gun draw and Rick shoots both guys dead. The scene then cuts to bodies of walkers burning in the pyre. End episode.

    Episode 9: “Triggerfinger”
    The episode begins with Shane asking Daryl if Rick and Glenn are back. Daryl tells him “NO” and also tells him that Lori asked him to go look for them, but he ain’t doin that no more. Shane lets him have it for sending Carl and Lori out to look for Rick, and Daryl tells him “Not to talk to him about getting his hands dirty.”

    Then we go back to the bar, where Rick tells Glenn he needs to “shoot the bad guys in the head”, so he can go back and talk to Hershel. Glenn says, “but they are already dead, and we need to save our ammo” and Rick says, “Glenn, just do it.” Rick and Hershell go for a talk.

    At the farm, Daryl goes to see Carol, who is still in a catatonic state. He suggests that she go to Sophia’s grave and make her peace. She says nothing. He helps her up and walks with her. When they get there, Carol finally speaks to the grave and Daryl cries. Carol sees a Cherokee Rose on the grave, and she cries.

    Shane finds Lori on the side of the road. He kills the zombie trying to get in the car. Lori is okay but shaken. She doesn’t know where Carl is. He tells her to drive back to camp, tell Daryl what happened and the both of you, come back for me. Shane goes in woods to look for Carl. Carl is getting ready to shoot a zombie, Shane shoots it for him. Make that the sixth time Shane has saved their lives.

    Still in the bar patiently waiting for Rick’s arrival, Glenn doesn’t get why Rick wants him to shoot the bad guys in the head. Rick and Hershel return in a panic as the rest of the dead guys’ gang chases them in. Rick starts shooting at them when out of nowhere, the two dead guys become the undead. Glenn freaks and gets triggerfinger, and kills them dead. After the gun fight, Glenn is a mess and wants answers. Rick tells him Jenner’s secret: everyone is already carrying the zombie virus, and will come back as a zombie no matter how they die. End of episode.
