Holy guacamole. I had this great idea at the start of the last night’s The Walking Dead episode to write about Tyrese’s conflicting statements about destiny then later about choices and freewill. Which all kind of ties up with ‘what makes a zombie’. Where zombies are pure destiny, lacking any freewill. The zombie apocalypse world is fully destiny driven, and even the survivors are stripped of the feeling of ‘choice’. Yet Tyrese seems to rage against this.
I think this psychological struggle occurs in many survivors. After my accident I negotiated between the two all the time: destiny vs. freewill. If I had just left the house two minutes earlier, if I hadn’t ridden my bike that morning, if I had only done everything differently, I wouldn’t feel like I shouldn’t be alive. (I’ve moved on from that- don’t worry about me. Therapy! Yay!)
So I was thinking along these lines while watching the show. But then? Shitballs.
I can’t even. I won’t spoil anything but I’ve spent the past twelve hours shaking my head.
Nice retooled intro though, right? And how annoying was it that the Talking Dead didn’t come on until 11? I fell asleep before then and now can’t find it on demand. Ugh. Anyway, destiny fucking sucks.

I have to worry about you. The world needs you and your luxurious bangles. Will look into Tyrese. If you have a link I would much appreciate it.
Do you watch the show The Walking Dead? Tyrese is one of the characters on there and the show started back up last night.
Thank you for the concern 🙂
Oh, I get it. I’ll try to find the episode but no I’m not a regular watcher. I do hope you’ll continue to travel safely.
I do, no biking for me anymore 🙂
Good. I’m relieved to hear it.
oh garsh!! I’m gonna watch the episode later so just based on this title I’m fekkin’ freaking out-should I be worried?
Yes. Be worried but tell me what you think!
I watched and I sort of enjoyed…I didn’t expect THAT to happen right now and go in that direction tonight. Poor guy.
It was a great episode, more brutal for me than Beth’s death. But still 😦
I’m a robot I wasn’t moved much by Beth’s death not that I wanted that to happen. This was harder for sure!
Beth’s death I felt super ‘eh’ about… but this one was so different. Maybe because this character was more slowly developed? Whereas end of season and start of this season they were all “Beth! Care about her!” It was sort of an emotional set up.
Yeah, same “eh” sorry Beth.
