The bloody shot of episode 11 × 03 of 'The Walking Dead' to remind us of an old trauma

AMC

Horrible situations are common in the zombie apocalypse by The Walking Dead (Frank Darabont and Angela Kang, since 2010); the disgusting violence of the undead whose only inclination is the teeth of a useless hunger, or that of the monstrous humans who give free rein to their lust for power or the inconceivable disregard of those who would trample even their own mother to survive .

But, although that is the general trend in the AMC series, there are moments that have been recorded in our emotional memory as spectators because the horror overflows in them. Thus, one cannot help but remember the overwhelming reappearance of little Sophia Peletier (Madison Lintz) in the episode “Pretty Much Dead Already” (2×07).

Or the death of Dale Horvath (Jeffrey DeMunn) during “Judge, Jury, Executioner” (2×11), that of Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) in “Killer Within” (3×04) and what became of his remains in “Say the Word” (3×05), that of Noah (Tyler James Williams) in the footage of “Spend” (5×14) or those of Sam (Major Dodson) and Jessie Anderson ( Alexandra Breckenridge) in “No Way Out” (6×09). Because death is what haunts the most to the characters in The Walking Dead , slowly but surely.

However, there is no doubt that the most traumatic murder that has left the greatest impression on us is the one to which a very significant plan of the chapter points “Hunted” (11×03) . After Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) are forced to temporarily abandon Alden (Callan McAuliffe) in a cabin and pursue their plan to obtain vital resources, the former leader of the Saviors kills a zombie with a crowbar.

And his fearsome traveling companion, who hates him deeply, remains from instrument, just like it was dripping from Lucille when Negan crushed her skull. her husband, Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) in “Last Day on Earth” (6×16); although we did not know that he had hit Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and him with the famous bat until the following episode, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be” (7×01). A plane that serves to affect the pain and anger of Maggie Rhee against Negan, we still do not know where it will lead them in The Walking Dead .
