S05.E04: Slabtown – Pre-Air Speculation and Live Chat

Recommended Posts

Things appear nice and safe, but there is a bit of a dark side for another group of survivors.

 

This is the pre-air and live thread, and will lock shortly after the episode finishes its first airing. After that, take it to the episode thread.

Ok, the person that's going to come out of the bushes behind Daryl is.....William Shatner as William Shatner!

 

J/K of course, but on TD Andrew Lincoln was onced asked "if you could choose one guest star to appear on TWD playing as themselves akin to Bill Murray in Zombieland, who would you choose?" I thought his pick of William Shatner was so perfect that I'm rooting for it to happen one day.

I'm really really bothered that this thought had crossed my mind earlier as well.

I would like it to be William Shatner as his character Denny Crane from "Boston Legal." Then he could blame the entire outbreak on mad cow.

I would pay to see that.

 

What's the "Live Chat" here? Is there a chatroom I missed? *peeks into all corners and rattles doorknobs*

I know people that don't mind Beth are a minority around here, but I am ridiculously excited to see what has been going on with her and who has her.

Despite the fact this ep is Beth-centric (I am neither here nor there about her) I'm looking forward to this. We are scifi horror fans and with this hospital dystopia NWO setting it's going to be a creepy-as-hell little slice of medical scifi horror.

I feel like the powers that be are aware that Beth either has hardcore fans, or people who don't care the slightest, so they threw in the ~twist to last week's episode so those who care desperately about Carol will have to tune in to make sure she's at least alive. The Daryl/Beth episode last season is still my least favourite episode so I'm not terribly interested in tonight's episode but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. I do enjoy the difference types of horrific people the writers dream up, so I'm curious as to who the hospital people are.

I really don't care for Beth all that much (hate the singing), but I'd much rather watch her than The Three Stooges and Three Nitwits Following the Stooges. Might be a nice change of pace. At least she looks like she's had a bath in the previews.

I'm dreading this episode. My roommate loves Beth, so I wind up starting a fight when I yell at the TV for Beth to go away or stop being so annoying. Between a Beth episode on TWD and a Katrina episode on Sleepy Hollow, this week is shaping up poorly. It would take a awful lot for the writing and acting to turn around and entertain me tonight. Trying hard not to be so negative but...

When the show left the farm and went to the prison, I didn't even remember Beth.   I'm rewatching the seasons with a friend and I paid more attention to her, but I can see why I barely remembered her.  Other than Herschel and Maggie, most of the farm residents were basically redshirts and didn't survive.

Beth came across like that, but somehow made it.  I don't dislike her, but she isn't one of the most compelling characters, at least not yet.

 

Surprisingly, they had her playing 17 at the prison, but her real age is 29.

I'm still betting Beth is back, that she's accompanied by several other young women who'd been kidnapped by the same people, and that Carol sacrificed herself to help them escape.

A Carol sacrifice would really tick me off. Especially for Beth

I'm assuming this is an Easter Egg by the show.  But Slabtown was a red light district in Atlanta that is now Grady Hospital.  I'm trying to decide if the window scene looks like the area around Grady.

Huh. Interesting! Could be. I know one side of Grady faces the highway (interstate), and I think the other is just downtown streets. I've always have heard that unless you had an urgent need, Grady was NOT the hospital to go to. :P

Cheer up! Emily Kinney is "special guest" on The Talking Dead tonight, so maybe Somebody Up There Likes Us!!

Ha, Kikismom! When they announced EK as the guest on TTD I got so excited! Then I thought "Nah, they're probably toying with me."

OOh it is Grady.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Good call on Grady!

Geez! I thought my insurance was crappy. Beth wakes up from her coma and is immediately put to work!

Looks like Emily Kinney's going to be having some extra time in the makeup chair for the scar on her cheek for the remainder of her tenure on the show (not that I know how long that is).

They showed a binch of car batteries. Why does she 'owe' for the doctor's food? And why did they show her heaping on scoop after scoop but the plate has one guinea pig and five green beans?

Awww crap it took less than 5 minutes for her to say she sings! Dammit!

 

She doesn't remember her name, but the singing she couldn't have forgotten?
