The Walking Dead
Season 5 Episode 14
We know some shit is definitely about to go down but I’ll get to that in a moment. This week we had a rat in the house, new discoveries, Deanna’s concern, the death of Aiden followed by the death of Noah and tons of glorious walker deaths! It was a really good episode with a lot of moving parts so time to break it all down at least somewhat, I’ll try not to get too longwinded. HA!
Noah’s death is without a doubt the most gruesome we’ve seen on the show so far as Noah is ripped apart right before Glenn’s (our) very eyes. I didn’t really realize until this moment that this is the first time that someone died on Glenn’s watch where prior to this he had managed to save everyone in danger from his first appearance on the show saving Rick trapped under the tank in Season 1 Episode 3 & 4 I believe it was. Hats off to Greg Nicotero’s FX team who did a fantastic job graphically showing Noah get ripped apart. Before he’s dragged off by walkers Noah’s last words are, “Don’t let go.” He isn’t telling Glenn to hold on to him, he knows he’s a goner. What he’s is saying to Glenn is, don’t give up hope, make a home of Alexandria and make it stronger. Three little words but so much implied (and hey, I commemorated it with this week’s exclusive TWD shirt, get yours below!). RIP Noah
