The Walking Dead “Claimed”

Finally The Walking Dead “Claimed” came On Demand!  Oh smart, Tara is writing directions on her arm while in the back of the truck.  Red started killing walkers with a crowbar.  When the last one came up he said, “Oh, honey, look at you.  You’re a damn mess.”  Tara looks stunned.  Oh she was disturbed because he was enjoying himself.  Hey, you might as well have fun with it!

Aw poor Carl reminded himself that he thinks Judith is dead, before that he was laughing with Michonne.  Michonne is probably my favorite character on this show, she’s very strong.  She and Carl went out for supplies, and she noticed he was upset about Judith.  She told him about her son, which opened the door for a million questions from Carl.  Meanwhile, Rick is sleeping and has a home invasion.  He gave Carl his gun, so he’s unarmed.  He hides under the bed.  A man comes in with a big gun to raid the bedroom.

Michonne’s son’s name was Andre.  Oh, and Carl found a mutilated painting that appears to have been cut up by a maniac and then nicely wrapped.  Of course she finds the bedroom of a little boy after discussing her child with Carl.  Plus a very nice little girl’s bedroom with four very dead people, make that five.  Aw, Carl said “My dad let me name her.  Maybe her and Andre are together somewhere.”  Then they head back to the house where the home invaders are.  Rick has to kill these men before Carl and Michonne get back.  It is my theory that Michonne’s husband and his brother (or friend, whatever) killed their son and then themselves.  It would explain why she had them on a leash with their arms and jaws cut off.  She told Andrea they deserved it.

The home invaders fight over who is going to get the bed, right in front of Rick.  The one guy sees him, but it doesn’t matter because the other one kills him.  Oh, nope, just knocked out.  I believe there were three men though.

Glenn wakes up in the back of the truck and asks Tara about the bus.  She told him they were all dead and they passed it three hours ago.  He rams the window with the gun to get Red to stop the truck, he takes off.  Red tries to stop him.  They’re on a mission and the fate of the human race depends on it?  Sergeant Abraham Ford.  The guy with the mullet (Eugene: science up front, party in the back) is a scientist that they have to get to DC.  He said he knows what’s causing the dead to walk.  Abraham told Glenn his wife is dead, so Glenn punched him in the face.  Now Abraham is trying to choke him to death, which just rang the dinner bell for the walkers.  Eugene doesn’t seem to know how to work the gun.  Abraham tells Eugene to stop firing and then fires his own gun.  Pft, then he took the gun away, Eugene blew holes all threw the truck.  It was leaking gas bad, to which Abraham said, “Son of a dick.”

Meanwhile the third home invader was calling the other two, Rick got out from under the bed.  He can’t get any of the windows open.  They found Michonne’s shirt, now they are waiting for her to get back.  Rick runs into a bathroom and there’s a guy in there.  He strangles him with something and takes the gun.  Made a hell of a lot of noise.  He managed to get a window open in the bathroom, why is he opening the door?  He crawls out the window, which is naturally on the second floor.  He was unconscious the day before, so much for resting.

With the truck dead, Rosalita (the army chick) decides to go with Glenn and Tara claiming, “What the hell else are we going to do?”  So naturally, the other two follow.  Mullet (Eugene) seems pretty happy about it.  Apparently Rosalita is Abraham’s girlfriend.  

Michonne and Carl come back while one of the home invaders is sitting on the porch.  Some walkers distract them and Rick runs off with Carl and Michonne.  Michonne, Rick, and Carl find the sign for Terminus…the band is getting back together!  Well, you know what I mean.  I just hope this place isn’t like Woodbury, but it probably has the same kind of megalomaniac running it.  A new dude to fight, as if the walking dead wasn’t enough.  Well maybe we’ll get to see this place on Sunday.

Kenny came to Aidan’s rescue, but Aidan would only let him take care of the body.  Nora and Josh finally found Robbie’s body.  Oh dear, Sally is talking about bringing Robbie back from the dead.  And they don’t know that Robbie’s death was an attack and not an accident.  Sally decides to summon Donna to help her resurrect Robbie because there is no spell for it in the book.

Being-Human-Episode-4.07-Gallows-Humor-Promotional-Photos-2_595_slogo

Oh Sally went back to Donna’s death spot and possessed a woman to move a ladder.  She grabbed Donna and brought her back.

Hmm, Aidan went to see Suzanna and asked for some blood.  She gave him a small bottle and it made him sick, he started vomiting and fell over onto the bed.

Josh thinks the magic did something to change his personality.  Damn Robbie already learned how to get from one room to another without walking, Sally had to be taught by another ghost 6 months after she died.

nup_157066_0057

Donna shows how she was killed by pilgrams, hanged. She tells Sally she could be stuck in the past forever if she continues.  Donna was resurrected by a coven of witches.  Donna had bee falsely accused of witchcraft and hanged, and the witches brought her back to join them by sacrificing another woman.

Suzanna is actually punishing Aidan for killing a stranger, even though she killed their son.  Aidan says he’s done fighting what he is, good for him.  Suzanna is determined to make him punish himself for killing that girl.  She says it’s the only way to never kill again.  He says he’s tried and it doesn’t work, of course it doesn’t work.  It goes against their nature, vampires kill.  He named a bunch of people he killed.

“That’s the most sensible thing you’ve said since I ate you,” Donna said to Sally when she said she couldn’t sacrifice someone for Robbie.

Nora freaked out about doors when telling Robbie what happens, freaked him out too.

Sally tells Robbie about what she saw.  She says she and Donna found a way to bring him back.  Donna tells Robbie, “Your sister means for you to live, it’s up to you to decide if you’re worth it.”  That made him think.  I love how he doesn’t even question what they have to do to bring him back.  Not to mention, he’s still going to die some day.

Robbie left, he didn’t want to be resurrected.  He felt like a failure and said he screwed up everything.  Donna asks for help from Sally to prevent her from ever coming back to that dimension, so that she can never use magic again.  Sally wasn’t sure she wanted to do it, she gew on her.  Donna asked her to never use the magic again, she could only promise to use it on special occasions.

Aidan asks for Suzanna’s forgiveness for all the things he’s done, and says he hates himself and nobody could hate what they are more than him.  Suzanna told him she killed their son.  Aidan grabs the stake to kill her but he can’t do it.

Josh nearly raped Nora, she had to pull a knife on him.  He wolfed out on her, literally on her.  He was as mortified as she was.  Nora’s leaving Josh, can’t really blame her.

Sally is trapped in the past watching her old self live with Danny and realizes she is just about to die because she is wearing the clothes she was stuck in.  And that was it.

Wow, from the previews of next weeks episode, it looks like Sally is about alter history.  This promises to be interesting.

*I’ll try to get more pictures later, SyFy hasn’t posted them yet.*

Jeremy gets an uninvited guest at the door, challenging him.  Clay kicks his ass and throws him out.  I have a hard time with Jeremy in this show, because he looks nothing like Jeremy.  Jeremy was supposed to be half Asian from the mother he never met.  I keep forgetting who this guy is.  

s01_e0106_02_139234002004___CC___640x360

Back in Toronto, Elena sees Daniel Santos and is starting to realize that she is a werewolf no matter where she lives.  You’d think that would be obvious, but maybe it’s just me.  Oh interesting, I guess in the tv show Victor Olsen was one of her foster family’s neighbors.  Now I understand what Zachary Cain was talking about, getting back at Elena.  It didn’t make any sense before, because that wasn’t in the book.  Elena had been sexually abused many times in her foster families, but the tv show is adding neighbors as well.  She said she thought it was Victor Olsen, but it was Daniel Santos.

Elena told Logan but no one else, then bought a lot of alcohol.  Then she agreed to move in with Philip. grrrr.  

s01_e0106_05_139234002902___CC___640x360

Nick found out that some guy was killed that used to be in the pack.  Meanwhile Elena is throwing a party for Philip’s annoying family.

Clay is getting annoyed because Jeremy is being a push over, just as Jeremy was about to argue Boggs, the mutt Clay beat the shit out of earlier, came back saying he had a right to fight for alpha.  This time Jeremy kicked his ass.  Jeremy can fight, it’s just not his thing.  Jeremy orders Clay to take him downstairs and interrogate him.  Clay locks him in the cage and proceeds to “question” him.

Daniel Santos shows up at Philip’s sister’s wedding.  More lies about Clay, he’s trying to make him look bad.  Meanwhile Clay found out Marsten sent Boggs.  Daniel asked Elena to join him.

s01_e0106_09_139234004124___CC___640x360

Logan finds out that his girlfriend is pregnant, and she doesn’t know that he’s a werewolf.  Impressive for someone who should be dead.  Jeremy called Elena and she lied to him,which makes no sense.  She lies to herself, not Jeremy.  Logan’s girlfriend, Rachel is freaking out because she’s pregnant.

s01_e0106_12_139234005046___CC___640x360

Elena won over Philip’s mother and then Clay calls.  He’s pulling Boggs teeth out and claiming he doesn’t want to and asks her to come home. So not something Clay would do.  Killing to protect Jeremy is in his nature, he thinks nothing of it.  Ugh, anyway, Elena left for Stonehaven, leaving Philip nothing but a text message..  I can understand changing the storyline, sort of, but the characters should at least maintain their personality.

s01_e0106_13_139234005596___CC___640x360

Nick came home, I guess he and Antonio miss the dead guys.  Santos left a package for Jeremy with Elena, it was that guy’s eyes.  She gave it to Jeremy telling him Santos came to her.  And that was the end.

Being Human “Cheater of the Pack”

s01_e0406_01_139241090645___CC___640x360

Being Human: Cheater of the Pack; I knew this was going to happen, but I honestly thought it would be Nora and not Josh that cheated.  I was very surprised that it was Josh that woke up with another woman that he apparently had sex with.

s01_e0406_02_139241090936___CC___640x360

 

Then Sally’s brother Robbie shows up and announces that they have  days to get out of the house because he is selling it, or pay him $300,000 to buy the house.  They were the ones that fixed up the house, it was a piece of shit when they moved in.   Oh well, Robbie didn’t get to sell the house, but we’ll get to that.

s01_e0406_03_139241091238___CC___640x360

 

Nora says she eventually wants for them to have a house of their own, but she knows Josh isn’t ready for that.  Josh was so guilty he said they should move and start looking for houses right away.  Of course, he hadn’t told her he woke up that morning after having sex with another woman.  That woman was really stupid, she thought her husband would see that it was just their wolves’ instinct.  Josh begged her not to tell Mark, but she said their relationship was based in honesty, so she had to tell him.

s01_e0406_04_139241091576___CC___640x360

 

Suzanna caught Aidan being very hungry and she said she would help him get past the hunger so he could drink as little as she does.  She decided to babysit him for the day.  She should have kept him for the night, but we’ll get to that later.

s01_e0406_05_139241091916___CC___640x360

 

Robbie keeps showing the house to prospective buyers, and Sally is furious.  She performed a spell to make the house stink.  Then she was transported to the past where she saw Robbie and Danny right after they moved into the house.

s01_e0406_06_139241092232___CC___640x360

 

Robbie hated Danny and the house.  He was the only person that saw Danny for what he was and didn’t trust him.  Sally felt very bad for the way she treated him, back then it felt like he was attacking her.  She realized he was just looking out for her.  On a side note, that guy has to be Meaghan Rath’s real brother, they look exactly alike.  Ah, yep, I looked it up…http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2042776/

s01_e0406_07_139241092527___CC___640x360

 

In the bar that Suzanna works in, Aidan tells Josh who Suzanna really is.  “Sure that’s normal.”  Aidan told Josh that he should NOT tell Nora about his romp in the woods with the pack girl.  He said it would only hurt her, Suzanna was listening and thinking about her own secrets.

s01_e0406_08_139241092826___CC___640x360

 

I’m sure she is tempted to tell Aidan the truth about what she did to their son, and yet she doesn’t want to hurt him.

s01_e0406_09_139241093135___CC___640x360

So instead she has sex with him, she said he needed a distraction from his hunger.  He promised her he could handle not drinking much blood.  She said she would make him pay if he slipped up.  He agreed to the terms like an idiot.

s01_e0406_10_139241093431___CC___640x360

 

Just when Josh was about to tell Nora what happened, Mark showed up…and he was pissed.  He attacked Josh and threw Nora across the room, well then Josh went all wolfie on him after he threw Nora.  Then they left, and Nora said she was moving out.

s01_e0406_11_139241093796___CC___640x360

 

Weird stuff was going on with the house and it seemed to have to do with that Lil’ Smokie girl. One of the people who came to look at the house had a little boy.  The little boy ran upstairs to go pee and was called into somebody’s closet.  It was that little girl.  He had been knocked down and his head was hurt.  Then Robbie was downstairs fixing something and the water heater started leaking and when the water touched him, the power tools went off and a saw fell off a table electrocuting Robbie.  Sally came back and told him she would make it up to him, she had just came from the house.  Then she realized he could see her and hear her.  Then they both looked at his body.  Meanwhile nobody went downstairs to check on him when the lights flickered, Josh was kinda busy.

s01_e0406_12_139241094085___CC___640x360

 

And that very night Aidan went off the wagon.  So Suzanna will be torturing the hell out of him on Monday.  Can’t wait to see what happens next, and I’ll try to post on Monday night instead of Thursday.

 

No Humans Involved (Women of the Otherworld book 7) by Kelley Armstrong

No-Human-InvolvedUSpaper

 

The seventh book in the Women of the Otherworld series, No Humans Involved, is from the perspective of Jaime Vegas.   I have to say, when Jaime first showed up I really didn’t like her.  However, she’s become a more complex and stronger character.  She is still insecure, but has grown quite a bit since her first appearance in Industrial Magic (though she was first mentioned by Savannah in Dime Store Magic).  Jaime is a real necromancer and also a show medium, the later is more of acting than supernatural.  As shown in all her previous appearances in this series, she has a wild mad crush on Pack Alpha Jeremy Danvers.  After four years, and a lot of alcohol, Jaime finally invites Jeremy to go away to L.A. with her.  She is going to do a show with other fake mediums about the death of Marylin Monroe.  Naturally the trip does not quite turn out as expected.

As soon as Jaime goes into the garden of the house she and her costars are staying at, she gets poked by tiny fingers trying to get her attention.  For awhile she was afraid she was losing her mind, which sometimes happens to necromancers.  Eventually she realizes that these ghosts are indeed real, and the ghosts of children.  However, something is very wrong with them.  They can’t communicate with Jaime, so it’s up to Jaime and Jeremy to find out what happened to these kids and find out how to set them free.

They realize the kids were sacrificed for magic, but no supernaturals sacrifice kids.  They figured it had to be human magic, which shouldn’t exist.  They enlist the help of a half demon named Hope, and also Eve Levine.  Hope is a tabloid journalist and a member of the Interracial Council.  She tries to keep the supernatural stories out of the press, or at least make them unbelievable.  She introduces them to an anti-scam paranormal society to help them find out about human magic.

It turns out that Hope is good friends with Karl Marsten, I like him.  I think he has a big crush on her.  Elena told him to stay near Jeremy, so he was supposed to be in Arizona.  However, when he found out what Hope was investigating, he came to watch over her.  How sweet, at the same time he figured he’d be near Jeremy in case he needed help.  He didn’t realize the case was for Jeremy and Jaime, so he got to help.  Oh and he joined the pack.

(I’m trying to shorten my book reviews, I tend to get carried away when it comes to books.)

So in between Jaime’s narration, you get to see these humans trying to get magic to work by using human sacrifice.  The book actually begins with two people from this group that approach a homeless teenage boy.  He believes they just want him for sex, so he goes with them.  While he’s sleeping others show up, and eventually they burn him alive and harvest his organs.  It’s the leader of the group that has the ability to make the magic work.  The supernaturals speculate that she has some supernatural blood in her.

The next book in the series is from the perspective of Hope, who is the daughter of Lucifer.  One demon did help them, at the request of Kris Nast (Savannah’s father) when Eve couldn’t make it at first.  Aratron, I always like the demons best.  He was pretty cool.  It’s a good book, I recommend it.  It’s not Shakespaeare, but it’s a lot of fun.  

*Appearances from other characters: Savannah, Paige, Elena (on the phone), Lucas, Kris Nast,  Clay (accidently on the phone), Katherine Danvers (screaming in the background on the phone)

The Walking Dead “Inmates”

Inmates Episode 10 of The Walking Dead: Where did everybody go and whom did they end up with?

TWD_410_GP_0830_0316

First we see Daryl and Beth.  They are fighting their way through the woods and the walkers.  Daryl shut down again, it seems.  Beth wants to try and find the others, Daryl doesn’t seem interested, but Beth insists.  Daryl doesn’t want to get his hopes up.  After Daryl kills a bunch of walkers, Beth loses it.

Micah and Lizzie are with Tyreese and Judith.  As most of us suspected, Tyreese did take Judith.  Tyreese hears a woman cry and leaves Judith and the two older girls to see if it’s someone from the prison.  Judith starts crying and Lizzie almost kills her, but Carol shows up just in time.  The people Tyreese was trying to help didn’t make it, but one of them told him there was a safe town up the train tracks called Terminus.  Tyreese, Carol, and the three kids head to the town.

walking-dead-season-4-episode-10-maggie1

Maggie, Sasha, and Bob are together.  Bob seems to be in a damn good mood, you have to wonder what’s up with that.  Maggie, of course, is focused on finding Glenn.  They don’t want to separate, so Sasha and Bob follow her.  The bus turned out to be just up the road and filled with walkers.  They let them all out to see if Glenn was one of them, but he was nowhere to be found.  I had forgotten that he got off the bus to look for her.

1780858_686886594667428_1719023838_n

Meanwhile at the prison, Glenn wakes up.  He realizes that everybody has gone and runs in to pack.  He was the only one that got to pack besides the kids.  He packed some of the baby food and grabbed his gear.  He had a helmet and some police issue body armor type stuff.  When he went to leave, he found Tara.  Her sister died, and she felt like she didn’t deserve to go with Glenn because of what she had done.  He said he needed her though, so she went with him.  When they left the prison, some walkers followed them out.  They killed them, and three people showed up.  These are the ones from the comics everyone has been talking about.  So far we don’t know much about them, other than they drive a tank.  My guess is that they are from Terminus, but who knows.  I read something about them going north, but I can’t imagine Glenn would do that, not without Maggie.
