Last week’sDamien was maybe my favorite episode of the season. Charles Powell (Joe Doyle) was killing in Damien’s name. Damien (Bradley James) made it clear he wanted nothing to do with the potential of being the Antichrist, and beat Powell nearly to death. It was another acolyte, his psychiatrist, who finished Powell off in a rather bloody finale. More bodies on the pile surrounding Damien Thorn, and Detective Shay (David Meunier) is feeling the heat”¦ literally. Almost burned alive in his car while following Damien, he has been attacked by dogs, and had his son threatened at home. How far is Shay willing to go to find answers? Speaking of questions and answers, Amani (Omid Abtahi) figured out that his new hookup Veronica (Melanie Scrofano) is actually Ann Rutledge’s daughter, and was scoping out Damien’s place on her behalf. Veronica might be dead after messing with the wrong nun. With only 2 episodes left in their first season, let’s see how unholy Damien can get!
AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 6.2 “JSS” aired last night and it gave us the chance to see how this group of survivors would fare without our A list of heroes, like Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and Glenn. And while some managed to survive, it had a lot to do with Morgan and Carol, who both were quick to jump into action. While Morgan has the skills to take on multiple attackers at once, his struggle to retain his humanity becomes a hindrance at times when the Wolves attack the Alexandria Safe Zone. Carol infiltrate and sneak-attack approach was much more practical and effective.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jessie defending her children and her home against one of the invading Wolves. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3 1/2-minute “Making of” featurette about the invasion of the Wolves, while the other is a 4-minute “Inside Look” that focuses on Carol’s heroics, Morgan’s struggles, and the horrible danger that the Zonies never knew existed.
