    Oooooh, this is creepy. The King of Hearts was based on Charlemagne, whose father, Charles VI went pretty much screaming mad:

    Thanks, Ivy. I missed that connection entirely -- I might have heard it as a kid, but forgot until you reminded me.

    At least there was some method to the madness (ha ha!) there.

    As crazy as Rick?

    I did read the synopsis on the comic. If it is really following the comic, we'll need a larger supply of body bags.

    Some sites link the King of Hearts to the mad king himself. My guess would be that's where they're coming from with this episode.

    Too bad they couldn't actually use the deck of cards in the episode itself, to make the connection/symbolism stronger.

    Would that make the Governator the "one-eyed PhillipJack?"

    The term "jack" actually meant "commoner" or peasant, back centuries ago when the term originated. Which makes it an interesting part of the card deck -- it's like a commoner being considered royalty.

    Just found this on the wiki page:
    Glen Mazzara, when asked about the direction of the character for the third season of the show, explained that he will be shown as a man self-absorbed with the concept that the new apocalyptic world is his chance to have the power he lacked in everyday life.
    I've been trying to avoid reading too much about the specific characters in the comic, just in case something transfers to the show, but Michonne REALLY messed him up in the book... he apparently lost more than just an eye.

    *tag* you're up!

    Okay, Episode #10 definitely seemed to be a step up again.
    ...And that bastard Governor just needs to die at this point.

    Trying to figure out who the next redshirts will be, and what happened to Tyresse (was that his name?) and his gang....
    And now it looks like Merle and Glenn are gonna have to lay down the smack. Can't wait to see how THAT goes.



    I have to repeat again that, after the letdown of the mid-season premiere, this episode was a great example of what this show can actually be.

    I never thought I'd have mad love for a redneck, but Daryl really got to me last night!

    I'm very excited. It turns out my oldest kid went all Walking Dead crazy last week.... he actually watched EVERY episode available + the Sunday night one.

    I wish I had the time to just watch 3.5+ seasons of a show in a week's time.

    Anyway, now I have someone else to talk about it with.
