    Watching this episode brought back a lot of memories. It reminded me of when I had sex for the first time. That’s the day I became a man. It also reminded me of when I gave up bologna for good. That was the day I became a human being. I remember the big bologna bonfires and my fellow newly made human beings. Those were good times.

    Okay, enough with the reverie. Let me get to the big reveal first. I now know why we didn’t see Palmer for such a long time after he saw the master. It probably took a couple of episodes to stop laughing. The master looks a bit like an evil Krusty the Clown. It’s not so much the smoothness that you mentioned (in my opinion). It’s the really wide mouth and extra thick lips. It’s a goofy look. But wait, that’s not all. There’s a lot to not like about this episode.

    What’s with Fet using Andy Dufresne’s rock hammer from The Shawshank Redemption to kill vampires? Apparently those worms can’t be such a big deal if you can get close enough to kill the vamps and risk having blood spatter (yes, spatter. I learned that from Dexter) on you.

    I can only assume that Abe doesn’t really care for Fet and Eph. After all he attacked the master with a small knife and got his hands crushed. He hands out short weapons to other people, but notice that Abe himself carries a nail gun (long distance weapon) and a sword (another long distance weapon). He’s no fool.

    Ahhh, the love scene. It’s pretty normal to take a woman’s clothes off on the bed, then lift her off the bed into a more uncomfortable position. He did smack her ass when he stood up, so that may be the reason. If so, then well done, sir. Well done.

    Also, I’m not sure way’s wrong with you guys. It’s perfectly normal to drop off kids if you see an unidentified shadow moving around. Didn’t she have her kid in the car? I could be wrong about that. But if she did have a kid in the car, what happened to the kid when she returned?

    Also, apparently Felix only has a taste for guards. He sits quietly in the van with 4 tasty meals wrapped in orange but waits for the guard to open the door before he attacks again.

    Was this the worst episode? I’d have to say no. It’s been an uneven, choppy, inexplicably dumb at times ride the whole way. You’d think that there wasn’t a book to follow. And to think, I was worried that the mouth organ/ snakes would look too silly on television.
