Congratulations! You’ve found your way over to VoxTalk’s exclusive live blogging event of The Walking Dead season premiere. Join us for all of the laughter, tears, zombies and bloody chunks of flesh as the Ricktatorship continues. SPOILER ALERT: Do NOT read on if you don’t want to know what happened!
Zombie Kill Counter: 53
OMG Count: 9
Death predictions for this season: We’re thinking Lori, possibly during childbirth to provide that complication (but that’s just wishful thinking on our part). Glenn could also be next if he takes trying to prove his bravery to the group too far. And finally, we could definitely see T-Dog biting the dust sometime soon. Only time will tell….
8:02 p.m.: Man, look at the size of that gun! Carl can’t handle that! Budding psychopath…
8:03 p.m.: Aaaand Lori’s way pregnant. Time has definitely passed.
8:05 p.m.: ZOMBIES! Lots of ‘em. So much for that home.
8:06 p.m.: We have a new opening people! Loving this. When each character’s name comes up, an image of something that represents them is shown.
8:10 p.m.: We have visuals on the jail. Rick’s scheming already. And we’re already to 4 dead zombies; twice as many as last season’s premiere!
8:11 p.m.: Looks like the zombies are dead prisoners.
8:12 p.m.: The gang is splitting up. That can only mean bad things…
8:13 p.m.: RUN RICK!! Intense first few minutes! And where are they getting all this ammo?
8:14 p.m.: Boo ya! The gang has successfully survived the first zombie swarm of the season and is settling into their new home: a huge jail.
8:20 p.m.: Lori doesn’t look so good. But Darryl’s cape does!
8:21 p.m.: Are Darryl and what’s her name flirting? Oh baby.
8:22 p.m.: Weird singing from the blonde girl commences. What is this, Glee? Slave songs for the survivors? iPods only hold so much of a charge, we guess….
8:24 p.m.: The Ricktator orders no rest! “We have to go in there, hand to hand. After all we’ve been through, we can handle it. I know it.” The hope of supplies in the jail is a pretty good reason, though.
8:26 p.m.: Don’t you patronize Rick, y’all, especially if you’re Lori.
8:28 p.m.: Why haven’t we seen Michonne yet? She must have a grand entrance planned.
8:29 p.m.: OMG! Zombie death count goes up, and Michonne makes her first appearance! Yay!
8:31 p.m.: ZOMBIES IN SWAT GEAR! Our worst nightmare!!
8:32 p.m.: That zombie’s face just peeled off. This premiere is so much better than we’d hoped. What a fantastic zombie massacre!
8:34 p.m.: And now they’ve shut themselves in a dark room. Smart.
8:35 p.m.: If we were guards at this jail, we would’ve killed ourselves too. This is nuts.
8:36 p.m.: Stab that zombie in the face, Darryl! Or throw it off the second floor, that works too.
8:37 p.m.: Are they going to sleep in the cells?! Gross!
8:38 p.m.: Nothing more romantic than canoodling in a jail cell, Glenn and Maggie. They’re gonna do it. And did we mention how pregnant Lori is?
8:39 p.m.: Come on, commercials! Go away.
8:44 p.m.: Michonne is here! She’s so awesome.
8:46 p.m.: Apparently, Andrea saved Michonne all winter, and they’re pretty good pals. We’d love to have her as a friend. And Andrea’s not looking so good….
8:47 p.m.: The zombies’ jaws are cut off. Maybe this keeps them docile?
8:48 p.m.: Lori thinks the baby is infected, just like the rest of them. Zombie baby?!? And Lori wants to be killed if it is.
8:50 p.m.: Oh Carl, you mullet child. Take off that SWAT helmet. We wonder if he’ll actually stay put this time…
8:55 p.m.: Back to the black winding hallways with the Ricktator. Wonder what they’re going to find!
8:56 p.m.: OMG! Phew, it was just Glenn and Maggie running into each other. Careful guys, that could’ve been Darryl, and then you would’ve been stabbed in the face with an arrow.
8:57 p.m.: ZOMBIES IN THE HALLWAY! Everyone’s going to die. Why did they all go together?!
8:58 p.m.: Herschel nooo!!!!! That zombie is eating his tendon!! Call in the Grey’s Anatomy team!
8:59 p.m.: They’re going to cut the leg off! You idiots, it’s in his bloodstream. OH!!!! Rick is chopping the leg off in the goriest way possible. Just kill the man, for God’s sake!
9:00 p.m.: There are others in the prison. Holy cow. Holy crap.
Hope you enjoyed this episode as much as we did! We’re shocked by the amount of kills and surprises in this one. Join us next time for yet another live blogging session of The Walking Dead!
