Episode 12 of season 6 of “The Walking Dead” (“Not Tomorrow Yet”) was solid television. Read on for my observations on the installment.
The first few scenes were several of a number that cast Melissa McBride’s character Carol Peletier in the role of homemaker and mother. For over five decades now the Leftist entertainment industry has denigrated moms and housewives in general. It was therefore surprising to see the show present motherhood and homemaking in a positive light through Carol’s character. However, “The Walking Dead” had to put a feminist spin on Carol’s role and make her just as fierce a fighter as the men. The Leftists in the entertainment industry see the world as they want it to be and not how it is in reality. They deny the science of physics and its explanation for the fact that men and women do not compete against each other in the Olympics. In their view woman should serve in ground combat units alongside men and would typically preform just as well as males in a fight. How will they react the first time a woman POW gets passed around among some foreign enemies like a child’s baseball glove on a ball field?
This episode a romance blossoms between Carol and Tobin (Jason Douglas). Carol goes off to fight Negan and the Saviors. Tobin tells Carol that her toughness “terrifies” him and that he is going to sit out the fight and stay behind on the home front. We know who wears the pants in that relationship. In Carol and Tobin we see the Leftist entertainment industry’s wish that the American male becomes wussified and behaves more feminine and the American female acts more masculine. This brings up another field of science that the Left ignores—Evolutionary Biology.
Early on we are shown a close-up of Carol in which her striking eyes are on full display. I was immediately reminded of the fact that in recent months I have noticed what appeared to me to be a large number of women on cable news stations who were wearing some sort of contact lenses to enhance the appearance of their eyes. I did some research and determined that during the episode Melissa McBride must have been wearing what are known as “Big Eye Contact Lenses.” These lenses increase the size of the iris and make the color of the iris much more vibrant. Some also have a thicker than normal black outline around the outside of the iris that make its color standout more prominently against the eye’s white sclera than would naturally be the case.
Carol has long been one of the best characters on the show. Her character ark has been fascinating. She is a stark realist who accepts her world as it is and this makes her most interesting.
That Morgan Jones (Lennie James), by contrast, is an unfailing idealist and pacifist, is why I dislike his character so much. Whenever he appears on screen I hope I will soon see him become Zombie fodder.
This installment served to further reinforce my opinion that the walker makeup has been taken to a new level of excellence this season.
Politically Correct Merit Badges
The episode earned for “The Walking Dead” two politically correct merit badges. The first was for the depiction of the continuing development of the lesbian relationship between Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson) and Dr. Denise Cloyd, played by Merritt Wever. The second was for a lesbian kiss the two shared.
The Fight Against the Saviors
The firefight and overall combat between the core group of survivors and the Saviors made for some very exciting television.
It was refreshing to see that in the last few installments dwindling food has played a part in the season’s story. It has given the show an increased sense of realism. Perhaps in future episodes we will see cars breaking down, gasoline stores running low and firearms wearing out.
Five days is too long to wait for the next episode. If you are looking forward to it as much as I am and care to read my comments on the installment check back in with my blog a few days after it airs.
