Live Blogging The Walking Dead: No Way Out Part Two - Issue 81


This issue seems to deal with regret right from the start. Jessie regrets coming on to Rick sexually. Rick assures it's ok, that he doesn't regret anything. He then proceeds to get dressed and go make a phone call, err, start his patrol. Glenn is wracked with guilt about leaving andrea in the shower alone with little to no supplies. maggie tells him not to worry, get back in bed with her and worry about some other lady tomorrow. Heh. Morgan tries to convince himself and Michonne that he doesn't regret sleeping with her. Michonne gives Morgan a verbal smackdown and tell him to basically either get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.

Outside, Abraham has found a weak spot in the wall and notifies Rick. Rick's temporary solution is to back a pickup truck onto the weak post. Glenn has an idea on how to get some of the romers away from the walls: he wants to get a group of people together drive out to the tower Andrea's in, hopefully pulling some roamers away from the wall. Rick think this would work in an emergency but still knows that it would leave them abandoned. During their conversation, Rick tells Glenn about his trist with Jessie, Pete's widow. Glenn is shocked to hear he would leave Carl alone with her...seeing as how, you know, Rick killed her husband and all.

Along comes Spencer with some climbing gear and rope. Using this rope is a safer idea then going out on foot or in a vehicle amongst the roamers, or so they think. They begin to pack gear and head out to get going. Heath, Spencer and Glenn manage to grapple the rope to an adjacent building, they hug and kiss their loved ones, wish each other luck and head out to help Andrea.

Now, I don't know about you, but at this point in time I'm not very confident in Andrea's well being. We've heard no shots (she is smart enough not to shoot and draw attention, but she's been awful quiet) and she's said many times she would prefer to be put down quickly than to become a roamer. Who knows what they've done to the tower? Who knows if they've managed to get to her, or if she's dropped her gun, or been injured and bled out. I just think Andrea would have done something to let the group know she's ok.

Anyway, Glenn and Heath make it across with a few close calls and Spencer is next. Spencer's making his way across the rope and what happens? SNAP!! The rope breaks and down goes Spencer. With a hard "Wramm!" Spencer crashes face first into the adjacent building's wall. Glenn and Heath struggle to pull him up as the zombies get closer and closer to a fresh meal. Screaming for help Spencer's trapped as the two of them can't pull him up.

Right as a zombie has a hold on Spencer's foot and opens it's mouth to take a big chunk of his ankle, the rope suddenly gets a tug and Spencer is pulled up to safety onto the rooftop. Flabbergasted, Glenn and Heath turn around to see Andrea herself saving those that set out to save her.

That's why I love Andrea.

Cut to Holly and Tobin guarding the wall. A weak spot next to the original weak spot has started to form - and down it comes, spilling roamers into the community. (What did Douglas know?)

Cut immediately to a smiling Rick telling Jessie that she can stay there untill things "blow over". Heh.

Holly barges into the house announcing the entire wall has come down. Guess things aren't "blowing over" just yet eh Rick? Rick tells Holly to get everyone to the wall with silent weapons only. Rick arrives at the scene to see Tobin's intestines being used as appetizers. Michonne's missing so it's Rick and Morgan at the wall.

Waiting for reinforcements to arrive, a no good sneaky ass zombie bites Morgans arm from behind. In denial rick tells Morgan to get up, to not give up and to move.

We're left with a close up of Rick's panic strikes eyes as we see about three sets of hands closing in on him.
