The Walking Dead brings us improbable zombie attacks and very probable kissing. It’s about time we got a new power couple around here.

We can all agree that there are certain aspects of AMC’s The Walking Dead that seem a little, shall we say, far-fetched. The most improbable of these scenarios will be reviewed here each week.

Mildly Improbable

It’s hard to be flirtatious when lying in a coffin, but Daryl manages to pull it off.

Come on, Sasha. Bob is flirting with you hard, and he is an attractive, single man with medical training. He’s a total catch, even in a non-apocalypse. Stop resisting his charms!

Pretty Improbable

Beth, when Daryl offers you a piggyback ride, you should not hesitate for even a moment.

Why would Maggie leave Bob and Sasha to go to Terminus alone? What could be gained by doing that? And then she takes refuge in a pile of bodies near an ice cream truck? Stop the insanity!

Extremely Improbable

It makes no sense that Sasha would be so opposed to going to Terminus. Surely she understands that your odds of survival are better in a group. Instead she’s like, “forget it, Bob, I’m gonna hole up in this shanty town by myself for an indefinite period of time. Derp!”

There is no way a mass of zombies could all step over a 3-foot-high security rope, so the entire morgue battle with Daryl was very improbable.


Are Beth and Daryl going to become lovers now? I am getting some serious vibes. Many people might find this extremely gross, but I say go for it. Age difference? We cannot be so picky in the zombie apocalypse. Their relationship is starting to remind me of that “Constant” episode of Lost. Beth is now Daryl’s constant, folks. Get into it.

“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap

Beth and Daryl find a funeral home that is suspiciously clean and stocked with food, and when a zombie raid sends them fleeing, Beth is kidnapped and driven away. Daryl runs after her for a while and is eventually found by a roving gang of redneck thugs, who may or may not be his soulmates. Meanwhile, Maggie, Sasha and Bob are making their way towards Terminus, and Bob finally puts the moves on Sasha. And it turns out that Glenn might be headed there, too! Hooray
