The Walking Dead bores the hell out of you. Except one good reunion scene.

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.

“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap

Gabriel is being held by a group of fuckin’ weirdos, pardon my French. After a lot of boring filler, they are released, and maybe they’ll help with the Saviors. Meanwhile, Richard and Daryl scuffle, and Daryl finds Carol (yaaay!) in her cabin. Daryl lies that the Saviors didn’t kill anyone (Carol STILL doesn’t know about Glenn and Abraham) so that Carol wouldn’t fly into a murderous rage.

Mildly Improbable

“Whatever it is you’re holding on to, it’s already gone.” Daryl Dixon, Unlikely Voice of Reason, to pacifist Morgan.

Pretty Improbable

How did the Weird Group manage to Mortal Kombat the hell out of a walker? It’s kind of hard to put spiky armor on something that is relentlessly trying to eat you.

Extremely Improbable

Richard thinks he can talk Daryl into throwing Carol under the bus? BITCH. Have you been on the internet? #TeamDarol


I never thought Rick and the gang being held hostage would be so. Damn. BORING. Yet here we are.
